As an American-black, an ex-offender who practically has grew up and was raised by the American Judicial System....I used to live by the axiom of " Ain't No Justice...It's Just-Us ". But after watching the Casey Anthony trial...I now have to live by the axiom of " Ain't No Justice...It's Just-Ice. "
32-degrees below zero. The system is Ice Cold. Casey just walked on an over-all charge of murdering her baby daughter. Cold Blooded murder!!!
I'm at this position based on what I've witnessed through EXPERIENCE. A lot of people have set in their living rooms, in the comfort of their homes and watched cases be tried in courtrooms....broadcasted through the media. As a result, a lot of pictures of the person being tried for a crime become tainted by the hype surrounding the trial. I've personally set in courtrooms hand-cuffed to the person being tried for a crime. I've shared cells and dorm-rooms with people being tried for a crime. I've read the actual documents of those same people. Seen the evidence that the court had on these people in black and white with my own eyes. And the evidence that I've witnessed did not warrant a guilty conviction. And at the end of the day, I've also witnessed these same people GET THEIR ENTIRE LIVES THROWN AWAY BY THE SYSTEM even though all of the evidence clearly pointed out that this person was NOT GUILTY- BASED ON THE FACTS!!! And to add insult to injury, these same cases were not granted any action whatsoever at a chance of appealing the cases.
I've never in my life witnessed what I've just witnessed happen in the case of Casey Anthony. I am an ex-offender, a hardcore rap artist, and when the verdict of " NOT GUILTY " came back for Casey Anthony, tears flooded my eyes.
Now, I'm not saying that I don't believe that she murdered her daughter. I don't know if she did or didn't. If I did...then I'm absolutely certain that I would've been on the witness stand, as the rest of us who have our opinions about whether or not she did it would have been on the witness stand. What I am saying is that this is the first time that I've actually witnessed ( me..personally...throughout all my experiences with the court system ) a case be tried and concluded with a verdict based on nothing other than the FACTS AND EVIDENCE that the court had presented in front of them.
The verdict: NOT GUILTY....." Beyond a Reasonable Doubt "????
P.S.- As an after-thought I must also add. I do not agree with the end verdict in the case of the R&B singer R-Kelly. Ain't no justice...It's Just-Ice. The system is ice cold. 32 degrees below zero.
