    This case is more about the prosecution failing than the jurors being incorrect. The state couldn't make it's case, period. They had burden of proof, and Anthony had presumption of innocence.

    I think the fact that they couldn't prove cause of death is the real problem. Can't prove that Caylee was murdered, tho common sense tells us otherwise.

    Casey Anthony Verdict Spurs a New 'Caylee's Law'

    Four states – New York, Florida, Oklahoma and West Virginia – have put the wheels in motion to enact what is being called "Caylee's Law." It's legislation that would force parents and guardians to report missing children within the first 24 hours of their disappearance.

    Three more states are reported to be following suit.

    The proposals follow the public outrage over the acquittal of Casey Anthony, who waited a month before informing authorities that her 2-year-old daughter was missing. The delay hampered the search and was said to have affected the condition of her remains.

    After Tuesday's Anthony verdict – which cleared her of any culpability for Caylee's death but found her guilty of lying to investigators – an online petition for Caylee's Law went viral on the site Change.org.

    Within days, nearly half a million signatures were collected.

    Inspired by a flood of emails he received from constituents, Pennsylvania State Sen. Larry Farnese (D., Phila.), told the Philadelphia Inquirer he intends to introduce a bill that would deliver stiff penalties for those who conceal a child's death and create a new offense of "neglecting to report a missing child," said Farnese.

    In Anthony's home state of Florida, a similar law is being drafted by Representative Bill Hager.

    In Oklahoma, Rep. Paul Wesselhoft said of his state's proposed legislation, "It probably won't be a deterrent to crime, but at least it's something the prosecutors can charge someone with who's violated the law. If this law was in Florida, Casey would have some more jail time to stand."

    i'm always wary of laws created in the aftermath of public outrage. nothing good comes of emotional legislating. and it won't change what happened with casey anthony.

    I think you're right. And this law, while well-intended, is a bit of an overreach only because how do you prove when a parent knows that a child is missing? In Casey's case, this law would have possibly violated her right against self-incrimination. 'Excuse me Mr./Ms. Police Person, I don't want to be in violation of Caylee's law, so I just wanted to let you know I offed my kid 23 hours ago. So we're good right?'

    Will they sneak her out next Wednesday or will she want all the attention and walk out the front door for all the world to see?
    I believe that she will be attacked within the next few months. Maybe even killed. Oh well.

    They will prob provide her heavy security and take her to an "undisclosed" location. Her lawyers all said they fear for her safety.

    I wonder if Caylee did, too.

    And that's really the issue with this proposed law. People are unhappy with the result of this case, so they want a knee jerk quick fix. They wish there was a law to try her again, but they can't have that, so they'll settle for this and feel like they really made a difference.
