Thirty one days is more than a typical month. MONTH. I was born on the 31st day of March. I can guarantee you that on the first of April the first of March seemed like an eternity past to my mom.

Yes, I'm about to go off on Casey Anthony.

I've learned a lot about our justice system in the past few days. It appears in cases like this, that it's more about planting reasonable doubt in the jurors' minds than it is proving someone innocent. Our system has been working for a long time, so I guess this is the way it should be. But in this case, it seems a little faulty.
  • The smell of death in the truck could equal she took out her trash using her trunk. (I thought she lived at home in a suburban neighborhood. Do they not pick-up your trash? Where in the world was she taking the trash? She couldn't seem to find her child for 31 days, I can't believe she was on top of chores like discarding the trash. Just sayin.)
  • The piece of duct tape could have been used to tape the jaw together after decomposition of the body rather than used for suffocation.
  • Casey could have been scared to go to authorities for fear of her father after the accidental drowning of Caylee.
I'm still not sure how they are justifying the Internet search of "neck breaking" and "how to make chloroform". And not calling the police for a month? And then lying to them when she finally did call? And I guess her out partying while her daughter was missing and kissing up on a bunch of trashy girls is not a direct connection to murdering your child, but just very, very, very strange and odd behavior for a mother? And the tattoo of Bella Vita...I guess that's just something you might have tattooed on your back as you can't seem to locate your child? Seems reasonable, eh? No, no its does not. Not at all, actually.

Sounds like a bunch of malarkey to me, but I wasn't on the jury. Thank goodness...we'd still be deliberating, and I wouldn't budge on the fact that she needed to be locked away for a very, very, very long time.

Did you all catch the alternate juror on The Today Show this morning? He basically said he thought she did it, but that the prosecution didn't prove their case well enough. They didn't fully connect the dots. (I'm sorry, I didn't know you needed a lot of connection after just hearing she didn't call the police until her child was missing for THIRTY ONE DAYS.) He said the prosecution didn't supply a motive or a definite cause of death. Then when Matt Lauer asked if she got away with murder he said she did not. So which is it? She didn't do it or she did, but the prosecution didn't provide a video tape of her doing it? I'm confused.

Personally, I think that girl is guilty as sin. I don't think her father ever molested her. I don't think she had some terrible upbringing that caused her to be a pathological liar, and I don't think that little girl drowned in the family swimming pool. I think little Caylee didn't fit into her mother's 19 year old partying lifestyle. I think she got pregnant and loved that little girl, but got tired of being a responsible mom. She didn't like choosing her child over herself. I think there might have been some abuse in the years prior and Caylee might have been getting old enough to start talking about it. Just my theory. No matter what happened, that little girl should have never been found as a bag of bones in a swamp. NEVER.

I can't believe out of seven women on the jury that they so quickly decided to let her walk. That was shocking. At the very least is it not neglect? Abuse? She didn't report her child missing for 31 days. THIRTY-ONE DAYS. If I couldn't find my child for 31 seconds I would panic. Caylee was 2.5 years old. Three minutes is a long time for her to be walking around the house alone.
It's all very sad. I hope that all this indication that Mr. Anthony is a monster isn't true. And I hope that Casey and the defense team can clear their conscious of all of that. That's a terrible thing to try to pin on someone and especially your own dad.

I hope justice is one day found for Caylee, but sadly, I don't think that will ever happen. The least we can do is pray her little soul is in heaven and maybe that's a better place than where it landed on earth.
