Today’s post was not suppose to be about Casey Anthony…. but after the jury came to their verdict, finding Casey Anthony not guilty of ANYTHING but lying to law officials. I couldn’t help but blog.
I. am. furious.
While I never believed she would be found guilty of 1st degree murder, I never thought she would be let off so easily. I thought definitely aggravated child abuse- most probably manslaughter; but no. Nothing.
What gets me more mad is thinking that she will go on to profit from this whole media circus- and even though I know all she will say will be LIE, AFTER LIE and I will get even more mad for that poor little baby…. I will watch, read what she has to say- holding out hope that we will get some insight into that twisted head of hers- & I know I am not alone.
This trial fascinated so many for so many different reasons. Jose Baez (her defense lawyer) stated he thought the fascination was because she was young, beautiful… and white. I thought I personally found it so fascinating because of the LIES and BEHAVIOR of this woman who’s 2 year old was “missing” (or dead) for 31 days!
As a mother, it hit home. I know I can’t go in my own backyard losing sight of my kids for 2 minutes without panicking. I can’t even fathom not seeing them for 31 days OR finding something terrible happened to them- and just carrying on- life as usual. And the LIES. The lies she told so effortlessly- it’s disturbing.
But what is more disturbing, is that this woman who was more concerned to speak with her boyfriend while in jail, than to help her family find her daughter- will walk. She will get to live her “Bella Vita” as her tattoo states– and worse, she will be able to reproduce.
Did you follow the trial? What were your thoughts?
