Casey Anthony Acquitted, Really?

July 5, 2011 - Michael Palmer
As predicted Casey Anthony was found not guilty Tuesday of killing her 2-year-old daughter. The court room and outside crowds were shocked when the Florida jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of any murder charge or child abuse in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Admittedly, the prosecution left a reasonable doubt, but that is all legal talk, almost everyone I know thinks she is absolutely guilty. She was found guilty of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement but she may get time served and an immediate release at sentencing. So, at the very least this woman is a pathological liar.

As a grandfather of a 2 year old girl, I know the pain and grief that it would bring if she disappeared and were eventually found murdered. It was a cruel death and as public opinion cries out that justice has not been served, you have to wonder where Casey Anthony will hide now?

If you believe that little girls do not put duct tape on themselves and normal mothers do not look up how to make Chloroform at home, then you most likely feel as the ladies in our office do, that the judicial system failed in this case to prosecute a killer.

However, it did work like it was supposed to, if there is proven a reasonable doubt, despite your personal feelings, you have to make a decision based solely on the evidence.

Why they would find a mother guilty of child neglect for leaving a child in a car for 20 minutes unattended and not guilty for neglecting to report the death of their child for over a month, I am not sure.

If being a bad mother is a jail-able offense, make some room, because I have some nominees that need to be behind bars.

One thing is clear, this mother will need to leave her hometown, and perhaps the state of Florida and try to start over somewhere else, the public is outraged and there may be vigilantes who would ignore the jury's decision.

In any case, I doubt this is the last we hear of Casey Anthony.

It is so sad to see the videos of her when she was alive and think of the horrible death she suffered at the hands of her killer. If indeed it was her mother, how cold and calculating of a sociopath could commit such a crime and then move on to act like she did?

Facebook pages are filled with people posting in memory of Caylee Marie. But this too will end, and the little girl will fade into obscurity like so many other children who have been kidnapped, killed and left for the animals and insects by the sick and demented souls that prey on innocence.

If you believe in a higher power, then pray that justice will be done for all these children. Indeed, Casey Anthony knows what she did, and someday she will face another judge, there will be no jury to plead to, only Hell's fire and brimstone if this judge finds her guilty .... as we all suspect.
