"Respecting" the Verdict

One day after the release of Casey Anthony, many people are still enraged at the verdict that was given to Casey. Jose Baez told the public "We need to start respecting the jury verdict and decisions that the juries make." Will it ever get easier to accept what the jury decided when it came to the fate of Casey Anthony? I personally find it hard to be mad at the jury. I definitely believe Casey was responsible for the death of Caylee, but too many things were left open in the case. I never had a problem "respecting" the jury. Honestly, I'm not sure who my problem with other than Casey. If you don't provide enough evidence to back up the charge, then legally you can't charge that person. Technically.....enough evidence was not provided. I guess I look at things from my stand point. I would never keep the disappearance of my child a secret for a month and I sure as heck wouldn't cover up my child's "accidental" drowning. Why should I if I didn't intend for her death to happen in the first place? I guess the things we consider substantial evidence is exactly the opposite. Anyways, back on track, I respect the jurors decision. The only person who doesn't have my respect is the woman who murdered her baby girl. Casey Anthony will never have my respect.
