Murder verdict casts shame on nation

The recent acquittal of Casey Anthony of the murder of her 2-year- old daughter, Caylee, is a travesty of justice.

The verdict has far-reaching implications. One implication is that there is no justice in America. It seems that many Americans and perhaps foreign nationals who watched the trial wonder how a 2-year-old girl can drown when her mouth and nose are covered with duct tape. Another remaining question is why, if Caylee's death was accidental, her death was covered up.

The verdict also implies the corruption of the American legal system. The average American appears to be no longer protected by the law, but is still expected to follow the law.

The larger implied problem is the lack of ethics and common sense that would make a jury believe a neglectful mother, a woman who is a "party animal," did not kill her daughter. The jury's verdict is outrageous and shameful -- an embarrassment to all Americans. One wonders if one of the jurors was bought off.
