First of all, the tragic miscarriage of justice was the prosecution, trying a capital murder case with a pile of circumstantial evidence. Sure, it can happen, but in this age of CSI and Law & Order, your "smell expert" testifying pretty much screams that the rest of your case is garbage. Was that supposed to have the effect of a smoking gun? It's no wonder that the jury took a day to return the "not guilty" verdict.
Second, yes, world, everyone knows that she did it. Unfortunately (for you in this case, but very fortunately for you when you become the accused), in our system of jurisprudence, simply "knowing" that she did it because of the way she acted (not reporting you child's disappearance for a month?) and proving that she did it are two different things. It's hard to find someone guilty of murder when you can't prove that a murder has actually occurred. And as detestable as some may find it to be for Casey Anthony to walk free, I would much rather have that than a rash of innocent people jailed with the "come on, jury, you know she did it - why should we waste our time proving it?" argument.

So basically, people wanted to see Casey Anthony bent over by the justice system, but not bent over in a porn flick. How hideously unwanted are you when there's not even enough demand for you to turn your notoriety into a porno? I'm no connoisseur, but let's see - John Bobbit made one, the Octo-mom has an offer, Sarah Palin's lookalike made one, and I won't even discuss Ron Jeremy - but the sin industry says no to Casey Anthony.
I can't decide if I'm pleased because it reflects the world's collective disgust at her as a person, of if I'm a little sad because I wanted to see her completely sell out.
