The Constitution gives everyone the right in this country not to have to testify. Yes, we have the right to remain silent. Our judicial systems is in fact in the defendants favor. A common thought is that we would like to see 10 guilty people go free than convict 1 innocent person. In France, you are guilty until proven innocent.
The saddest part of this mess is that the jurors did not think it was enough evidence when the lawyers asked over and over again throughout the trial “Why didn’t you call 911 and report Caylee missing?” The Mom never testified and never answered the question. Luckily officials found the child’s body and at least gave some closure. We pray for the soul of Caylee and hope she is in a much better place now.
