Radley Balko’s piece on why Caylee’s Law is a terrible idea is excellent

by wfgodbold

And the best quote is at the end, where he says:

The “flaw” that led to the Casey Anthony verdict is pretty straightforward: The state failed to prove its case. And the government must prove its case, even when all of America is 100 percent certain of the defendant’s guilt, because we want to be sure the state will always also have to prove its case when we aren’t so certain.

Read the whole thing. You’ll be glad you did.
