To the surprise of many, Casey Anthony was found not guilty of first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee; she was also acquitted of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter charges. She was found guilty only of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement regarding the murder. This goes to show you that the court of public opinion does not always reflect the actual court of law.

Were you shocked by the verdict? Do you think Casey Anthony got away with murder? And can anyone estimate how many still-missing children went ignored during the course of this trial and the long-running media obsession that would have never been granted to a minority family or a male defendant?

Weigh in here, Clutchettes.

    White privilege at its best. I agree that the prosecutors didn’t do a good job proving their case, and I also agree the they were overzealous with trying to get her the death penalty. Maybe they should have tried her for life imprisonment instead. But at the end of the day, we know that had she been of a different ethnicity/color, she would have been convicted.
    The thing is, she’s probably going to get a book deal, a reality show, magazine covers, and interviews, so her life is about to be better than many of ours financially.
