Casey Anthony: "No Regrets"

Accused murderess Casey Anthony was acquitted of killing her three-year-old daughter. She will be free next week to get on with the rest of her life. My print column is up.

Here is a question I didn't think of until now.

If a stranger had been the last person seen with Caylee Anthony alive and told the raft of lies that Casey Anthony told poice would a jury have acquitted them? If that person had asked a neighbor to borrow a shovel two days after Caylee's disappearance, If he or she abandoned their car only to have it found with the trunk reeking of death, if he or she wrote in their diary that:
"I have no regrets, just a bit worried. I just want for everything to work out okay. I completely trust my own judgement & know that I made the right decision. I just hope that the end justifies the means. I just want to know what the future will hold for me. I guess I will soon see — This is the happiest that I have been in a very long time. I hope that my happiness will continue to grow — I’ve made new friends that I really like. I’ve surrounded myself with good people — I am finally happy. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t change."
If the child's body was found wrapped in a blanket from that person's home. If the stranger claimed that the child accidentally drowned and pointed the finger at their father as the person who got rid of the body... If a stranger did all that, would they have been found "not guilty" of the crime?

I don't think you can judge the jury. I, for one, have no idea what it's like to have the life of another person in my hands. I have been on a jury for a civil suit, and even that was difficult.
