Caylee’s Law


With the public outcry from the Casey Anthony verdict – NOT GUILTY on all major counts, someone came up with a great outlet to give justice to Caylee Marie Anthony and not let her death be in vain. The new petition going around is Caylee’s Law, which, most people have either seen it, heard about it and possibly even signed it. I decided to post the website where you can go to sign the petition which hold parents, caregivers and legal guardians accountable to report their child missing within 24-48 hrs (this should be a no brainer, but obviously, according to Casey Anthony it’s not). This new law will make it a felony to not do so. This case, the Casey Anthony fiasco has not only captivated the US but all around the world and has caused a public outcry and rage over the verdict. We can only hope something positive can come out of this and lets not forget the most important person, Caylee Marie Anthony. I think with the media frenzy and the courtroom theatrics, Casey Anthony has received too much attention. Let’s all put that energy towards Caylee and help pass this new law.

Casey Anthony Murder Trial – Defense To Rest Today


Today is the day the defense for Casey Anthony is supposed to rest. I’m assuming they will call a few more witnesses, hopefully Casey Anthony herself. And possibly a few “experts” to testify for the defense while we all sit back and watch, live stream, pod cast, whatever…the tradegy as it unfolds before our eyes/ears. We all know that whoever they place on the stand today will be chewed up and spit out by Jeff Ashton who, has pretty much turned the defenses experts into prosecution experts by the time he was done. For those of us who have been following this case, it’s almost bittersweet. Will there finally be justice for Caylee Anthony? Will Casey Anthony finally have to pay for her actions? Today will be the day we all sit on pins and needles as we all hope and wait to hear the words, “Defense’s next witness?” – “The defense would like to call Casey Marie Anthony.” We will all be silent as we listen to the words come flying out her mouth. Lie after lie as she accuses her father and brother of sexual abuse. Lie after lie about how Caylee drowned and her dad and Mr. Kronk covered it up. The lies she will tell in regards to the smell in the trunk, chloroform, partying, and all her dysfunction. Those of us who get to watch it, will get to see as she “cries” on the stand, most likely with the same dry tissue she had since the trial first started. Then, sweet justice as we get to witness the Prosecution chew her up while the Defense shouts Objections followed by 10 million sidebars {ok, maybe a bit exaggerated}. Today will hopefully be the end of this, not only for justice for Caylee, the people who knew her and loved her. But, also the millions of us from around the country who fell in love with this beautiful little girl, barely 3 yrs old. Those of us who have watched this unfold for 3 years. Whatever your opinions are about the Anthony family in general and whether they are dysfunctional, hopefully with this trial coming to an end, they can see through the smoke and mirrors and hopefully be able to move on and get the help they need.

I will be Live Streaming it for the most part today until I get home. I need to see if Casey will take the stand and what words will fly out of her mouth.

Casey Anthony, my opinion…


So- I have watched this case unfold since July 2008 and here we are, almost 3 years later since Caylee Anthony was reported missing. I am not sure about anyone else, but this case is a true tragedy. I will admit, since the news first broke across my TV screen on the Nancy Grace show July 2008, I have always said Casey was guilty. Since then my opinions never wavered, I was so sure she was guilty. I mean what parent, a mother no less, has their two-year old child missing for 31 days and parties?? I watched how she bounced in and out of jail that year and watched all the jailhouse videos, no emotions from Casey as her mom pleaded with her! Since the trial began 30 days ago something odd was happening to me, I began to have “reasonable doubt”. Let me stress, I am not saying she is innocent, but when facing the death penalty, my doubts were in full force. But after watching her father break down in court today, I was angry. How can someone put their family through this whether they are guilty or not?? And now, my reasonable doubt is slowly starting to diminish. But to me, this trial brought more questions than answers. Everyone seems suspicious, everyone seems off and everyone is so inconsistent with other people’s testimony. What in the world is going on, I mean, is this a conspiracy against Casey….um No! But I don’t know what to believe anymore! Is she this much of a monster to sit and watch her family go through this trauma on top of killing her baby or is she FINALLY telling the truth and if so, why sit in jail all this time and not tell what really happened?? I don’t get it, maybe it’s me and this is over my head. I feel bad for this jury though, if I am confused and I have followed since 2008, I can’t imagine these poor people. I guess judgement day for Casey will be sometime this week, possibly early next week. I wonder if she will take the stand???
