Casey Anthony Trial Underway; Florida Mom Accused of Killing 2-Year-Old Daughter

“i am a final year law student in south africa, this trial has captivated me & it is heartbreaking, we dont make use of jury systems& we dont have the the death penalty! however much else regarding criminal procedure is the same.she most likely will be found guilty, beyond a reasonable doubt. i do believe she is guilty, no matter how much i try reserve my thoughts untill a verdict has been passed down. i am wrestling with the thoughts regarding the death penalty, in some way i hope she does get that, that is the anger inside me, but logic tell me that it is not the best outcome, living and rotting in a prison cell for the rest of her life is fitting too, she cant hurt anyone else while locked away, therefor no longer a danger to the public. so sentencing her to death will simply be out of the revenge factor &that is not what law /justice is essentially about.i think of her family and that they have already lost one loved one, they should not have to go through the death of another. it is hard to deal with murder. simply Bcoz the " why" question is just never really answered! if casey is sent to life in prison ¬ death maybe it will make her address her demons &one day be able to answer that question of "why" & finaly give a really apology! it would help her family move forward. just my thoughts”
