Politics and Law, I often stay out of them. I watch the news now and then and learn a little about issues that are connected to these two subjects. When it came to the election of President Barack Obama, I paid attention and the Trial of mom Casey Anthony caught my attention, it fascinated me, it left me with big unanswered questions, and the biggest of all is; what really happened to that beautiful little girl (Caylee Anthony)?
Questions, that even as a verdict has been decided, is still unanswered. I can’t claim to know what happened or if Casey did or did not deliberately or accidentally take her daughter’s life but it feels as though a lot of what I have learned about her surrounding this case, as a mom, doesn’t make any sense to me.
For example, her lies; the 31 days after her daughter went missing of not telling anyone she was missing or calling the police; her calmness versus her mother’s franticness, when her mother made a call to 911; accusing her father of sexual abuse, then saying something completely opposite in their jailhouse conversations; the smell of decomposition in her car, the “Bella Vita” (means “Beautiful Life”) tattoo she got while her daughter was missing, and the list goes on.
It doesn’t make any sense to me, how a jury could find her not guilty. Not guilty, I honestly don’t believe that, but the law is the law, and despite it all, the State just did not have anything other than circumstantial evidence to prove beyond a shadow of doubt she did this, and the Defense did an awesome job of creating reasonable doubt, well, for the jury anyway.
I don’t know what is going to happen now, if the truth will come out someday or will anyone ever pay for this awful crime on this Earth, I do know however that they will pay and they will carry that guilt with them for the rest of their lives. Personally, I believe we had the killer in our grasp and we let her go. What now?
This little girl was killed and her body thrown in the woods like trash, and now today that crime goes unpunished.
I was too young to really remember the details of the OJ Simpson trial, but when I heard this verdict that’s what I thought about, only up until recently, OJ Simpson has been walking around a free man, well free from physical bondage anyway and here is someone else getting away with murder. I think this Jury really played it safe.
I still think that Casey has hell to pay from here on out, more jailtime or not.
I just want to remember Caylee today, a beautiful princess who never got to shine, because my life will go on and the rest of the world will move on, and Caylee will soon be out of our thoughts and minds, knowing this sadden me. To quote CNN headline news host Nancy Grace, “Somewhere out there, the devil is dancing.”
Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
