An outrageous travesty of injustice has occured in the Casey Anthony verdict. When it comes to little children being murdered or harmed, I become one of those outspoken parents that can't stop myself from yelling at the TV, or telling anyone within earshot of how a horrible travesty of injustice has occurred.Even though I promised my husband, my family and myself that I would not jump on my soapbox like millions of other people, yelling like the crazed Nancy Grace talk show host, I can't stay quiet any longer.
Casey Anthony has been allowed to leave jail after serving three years for killing her two year old daughter Caylee. I am sickened at the thoughts this brings to my mind. I am the mother of two children, and I could never harm them, in fact, I am the mom that has been overprotective of my children to the point of being called a Hover mom.
Casey Anthony may or may not have killed her two year old daughter. In all fairness, the media had Casey Anthony guilty before the case hit the courtroom.
The Casey Anthony case had circumstantial evidence, and it was not proven who killed this adorable little girl.
But, what we the American people who did catch some of the Casey trial, we do know something is horribly wrong with the Anthony family.
The Grandmother of Caylee Anthony was the person who called 911 to say her Granddaughter was missing. From what I saw in a recap on TV the other night, Cindy, called 911 a full month after her Granddaughter was missing. To me, this says, Cindy and her husband, were covering up for Casey. From what I caught of the trial, Cindy, her husband and her son were all trying to cover up for Casey. They in fact were walking a very thin line of lying.
From what I know of the law, (I am not a lawyer), this is called purgery. A person who takes the stand in a courtroom, has to take an oath swearing on a Bible that he will "tell the truth and nothing but the truth."
It sounded like Cindy was doing everything she could to keep her daughter out of jail. She cried. She denied. And yes, she may have lied. From where I sit, as a regular person who caught glimpses of the trail, perhaps, Cindy and her husband should be charged with accessory to murder, murder, or at the very least, purgery.
What it comes down to is someone in the Anthony household killed that baby. The child was buried and several years later her bones were found . Casey Anthony ran from home, the home she lived in with her parents. She did not have a job. She bolted from her parents' home after her child was killed, drowned accidentally, or was at the very least, was not taken care of . We don't know what happened to this child. And we will never know.
But what I do know and you know also is that a child died, and someone should pay, besides taxpayers, for this travesty of injustice. Copyright 2011, (c), written by professional author Kate Johns.
