Casey Anthony: Focus Group Rules for Aquital

On 48 Hours this weekend, the program will ask an Orlando focus group if it would acquit Casey Anthony of first-degree murder. According to focus group, most of the 12 “jurors” would acquit.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

The program’s unusual approach is “shameful,” said Al Tompkins, an instructor at the Poynter Institute, a school for journalists. “We have a system in the United States that works pretty well. It’s a system of discovery, of hearings, of cross examinations, and it’s worked pretty darn well for a long time. We have no business trying this case.”

“We wanted to do a focus group in the place where it had the most coverage,” said Susan Zirinsky, executive producer of “48 Hours Mystery.” “The results are shocking.”

    Oh brother. I didn’t see the Show… anyone else watch it? What kind of people were in this “Group”? Gotta wonder if this was a good thing to do before the Trial… Suppose Baez saw it— Jury Selection.. Done.

    Wonder how much of the scientific evidence this focus group heard. Probably not much.
