It seems a lot of people are upset about the Casey Anthony verdict.
Many people want to know how the jury could find Casey Anthony innocent. Well, first off, they didn't. That is a common confusion with our justice system. Personally, I think that juries should have three options for a verdict, "guilty," "not guilty," and "innocent." I also think that in the event of an "innocent" verdict, the prosecution should be held personaly responsible for any damages caused to the accused -- even if or especially if the defendant was indicted by a grand jury. If there were the actual verdict of "innocent" available, the "not guilty" verdict might not have left such a sour taste in the jurors' mouths.
