Can Casey Anthony Get a Fair Trial?

Post by ufercoffy on 21.05.11 6:30

This article is nothing to do with the McCanns, but the title "Can Casey Anthony get a fair trial" might also be a headline should the McCanns ever go to trial. It would seem the Casey Anthony trial is having trouble getting impartial jurors.

But in Portugal wouldn't the McCanns trial be heard by three judges instead of a jury?


Casey Anthony Jury Selection: After A 10 Day Ordeal, The End Is In Sight

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/19/casey-anthony-jury-selection_n_864421.html#s276329&title=Casey_Anthony_Jury

The Casey Anthony first-degree murder trial is moving forward, as the effort to pick a jury in this high profile case nears completion.

After 10 days, 14 potential jurors have been selected but not sworn in. Judge Belvin Perry is adamant that a 12-member jury will be seated by midday Friday; however, both sides still have two more chances to challenge for cause. If that happens, the process could be extended into the weekend.

The start of Anthony's trial comes nearly three years after the search for her two-year-old daughter Caylee captured the nation's attention. Some 1,500 to 1,800 people scoured the area near Anthony's home, making it one of the largest searches ever for a missing child.

Caylee was last seen on June 16, 2008, and officials found her remains in December 2008 near her family home. Casey Anthony, 25, has long maintained her innocence, claiming her daughter was abducted by a babysitter.

Anthony is accused of multiple charges, including capital murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and misleading law enforcement. The prosecution seeks the death penalty.

Perry had initially expected the jury selection process to take one week, but on May 9, the first day of jury selection, roughly 50 percent of those in the pool of about 200 potential jurors were excused after citing personal hardship.

Day two of jury selection began with the judge dismissing more than two dozen potential jurors who discussed how Anthony allegedly killed her daughter while seated in a private room.

Drama in the case continued on day three when the judge found a male juror to be in contempt and fined him $450 for attempting to discuss the case with television producers. In the ensuing days, contenders displayed more disturbing behaviors, including one potential juror allegedly posting on the Internet and that another enjoyed a graphic song parodying Anthony and her murdered daughter entitled "My Trunk."

I believe Portugal has a panel of judges for criminal trials.

To be honest I could not be impartial in the Casey Anthony case. All the admitted abuse/neglect makes me fuming by itself. Another case of "if your story is true you should be in jail anyway".

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
