Was there really any question as to who would be getting the recognition this week? I'm just surprised I held out this long before posting about it. I wanted so badly to run off my thoughts on the ridiculosity (yes...I just made up that word) of the Satan..er...Casey Anthony verdict as soon as it happened earlier this week. Then I thought I might as well hold off and wait until I could get fodder for yet another Bungles post.
I would say that unless you were living under a rock for the past week then you probably already know about the verdict in this trial. Then I started thinking that this trial was so publicized that even those rock dwellers would have heard about it. This was the most talked about trial since OJ. In fact, it was the first trial to get that type of worldwide coverage since the internet era which has some people trying
to equate it to his trial. Don't get it twisted though. There's a HUGE difference between a mother murdering her own child and a dude "allegedly" taking out his ex-wife.
The way I first found out about the verdict was seeing someone post it on Facebook. See...I didn't see the need in watching it live. Didn't see the point. It was a slam dunk case. The only purpose to watch the live version would be to see whether she would get life or death. So you could imagine my surprise when I discovered that she was found 'not guilty'. I immediately tuned in to find out more about the specifics. The more I watched, the more I was still baffled.
I have heard some people (including "experts" on television) say that it was because there was not enough hard evidence. Too much circumstantial. That would be all fine and good if we didn't see cases like this one convicting people all the time. Don't they ever watch "Dateline"? That show specializes in cases just like the Anthony one. 9 times out of 1o the person is found guilty on a lot less evidence than the Prosecution had against her. I guess this would be that 10th time that the person gets off then.
What we really got me was even if for strange reason they weren't able to find her guilty of murder, what about the most obvious? This "mother" was carrying on carefree while her daughter was missing for months without ever reporting anything to anyone. Who knows if she would have said anything if it weren't for her mother finally saying something to the police? At worst, that's an obvious sign of horrible neglect by Crazey Anthony. The jury couldn't see even that?? That type of disregard for the whereabouts of one's child was okay with them??
You may be thinking that this entry is geared more towards the jurors than it is Crazey. I didn't mean for that to be the case although it does seem that way. The fact still remains that it is blatantly obvious she did it so she's the one that should bear the brunt of the fury. That's all fine and good that folks always fall back on the old reliable "well God will judge her when it's her time". Yes He will. And until then..while she is still her on earth...I hope her last remaining days are filled with pure hell and torment. Even then it won't come remotely close to the justice she truly deserves for killing her own child.
