Ultimately it was one of those cases that got way too much popularity. Right now the Zimmerman trial seems to have grabbed America's attention. The OJ Simpson trial would have to have received the "most unneeded popularity contest ever" reward. As for the actual case, a lot funds were spent on research. They found a lot of strong, logical reasons for Casey Anthony's child's case. It all came down to the fact that they didn't have that strong, convicting evidence that sends people to prison. She was the one that got away.

She didn't get away. She now has to live with being seen as the psychopath who got away with murdering her own child. At least in prison she would have been surrounded by people with relatively similar backgrounds, but in the real world she is probably being shunned by everyone at this point.

If she really is guilty, legally or not, I think this is the more appropriate punishment.

Well, in prison, child-related offenders such as paedophiles and child murderers are treated the worse even by the prisoners, so I guess this seems the best outcome to her.

One of my forensic science profs was actually on this case. He said that there was overwhelming forensic entomological evidence against her.

Female prisoners aren't male prisoners. She would have been surrounded by dozens of other women who killed or maimed their children.

She'll get offed eventually. Just wait.

There was a lot of evidence against her, but they tried to charge her for death penalty, and there wasn't enough evidence for the jury to sentence her to death.

This was a case of the prosecution being stupid, charging her with crimes that were more severe than she (maybe) committed, in an effort to get her to plead guilty to her actual charges.

As far as I'm concerned, I feel that this has just shown how American justice has degraded. The number of people I saw wanting vigilante justice was sickening. The presumption of innocence still stands, and as far as I and the rest of America-at least those who support the justice system-she is not guilty.
