Rather ticked at the Anthony not-guilty verdict. Ticked at the prosecutor because it looks like he shot too high. Involuntary manslaughter seems a whole lot more likely to me than first degree murder. A selfish, narcissistic, ignorant young girl, sick of being stuck with a child, gets sick and tired of crying, yappity-yap-yap, etc. So she duck tapes her daughter and accidentally suffocates her--oops.
Ticked at the jury for not going with a lesser verdict. Good grief. Let's say she drowned. Where did the duct tape come from, DNA or no DNA? Some passer by? Down grade your verdict for God's sake people.
Then I have this typical cycle of stream of consciousness frustration. My first thought: man, you should have to graduate from high school or college to be able to be on a jury or vote. But then again, the educated are no more virtuous than the uneducated--they would inevitably oppress those who couldn't vote. And who would educate them? Those with college degrees already have diametrically opposed views on many crucial things.
Nope, it's best that every adult get to vote to make sure that their interests are protected. And we'll never be able to change the jury system--too hard and there's not enough will. The only solution is to work to make the individuals of our country more virtuous. A democracy degenerates into mob rule if those voting are not virtuous. This is where I believe we are headed--an increasingly narcissistic, self-absorbed populace who only looks out for #1 and calls it justice.
