Innocent vs. Not Guilty

I have many deep feelings over this, but I will simply say:

INNOCENT


in·no·cent (n-snt) adj.

1. Uncorrupted by evil, malice, or wrongdoing; sinless: an innocent child.
2. a. Not guilty of a specific crime or offense; legally blameless: was innocent of all charges.
b. Within, allowed by, or sanctioned by the law; lawful.
3.a. Not dangerous or harmful; innocuous: an innocent prank.
b. Candid; straightforward: a child's innocent stare.
4.a. Not experienced or worldly; naive.
b. Betraying or suggesting no deception or guile; artless.
5. a. Unaware: She remained innocent of the complications she had.
6. Lacking, deprived, or devoid of something.
1. A person, especially a child, who is free of evil or sin.
2. A simple, guileless or, inexperienced.
3. A very young child.

NOT GUILTY


not guilt·y


acquitted: declared not guilty of a specific offense or crime; legally blameless; "she stands acquitted on all charges."

One of the two above definitions is absolutely, unequivocally WRONG and INJUST.  Do I need to tell you which one?  I think not. 

I just pray that sweet, innocent baby girl is now in peace, with Our Lord, Our Father in Heaven.

Meli,
This verdict saddens me so much! I sat in shock! My heart ached for this precious baby girl in heaven! What is really sad is that she is probably going to make money off of this...movie, book, tabloids, it's sad...I refuse to watch a movie, read a book or buy a tabloid with all of this on it. I major in criminal justice, I am really familiar with the system, I knew when the defense started throwing all sorts of accuasations at the beginning of the trial that there was reasonable doubt, it is just saddening to me the whole ordeal....thanks for posting

love ya
me

From what I have read, she sure seems guilty to me.

But I guess without concrete evidence, nothing can be proven. :|

I was ASTOUNDED when I heard this verdict. If she did it, she will have to answer...someday.

I'm just very sad about the whole thing!
