In light of the recent, incompetent Not Guilty verdict, future child killers now have an outline of how to get away with murder thanks to Professor Casey Anthony. This case has sadly set precedence for future homicides. We (the jury pool) have been brainwashed by unrealistic episodes of CSI Miami to the point where many in America think you cannot convict without an actual video of the person committing the crime or an entire fingerprint.
So what have future child killers learned from this case; quite a bit actually.
1.) Lie to police; lead them on a wild goose chase for a sufficient amount of time to ensure that all DNA evidence subsides from the decomposing body (try to put the body in a rainstorm prone state so evidence washes away over time).
2.) Blame someone in your family of molesting you
3.) Say you come from a ‘’dysfunctional family”
4.) As long as you appear to love your child around your friends, their testimony during trial will persuade the jury to believe that makes you a ‘’good mother.” (Also if there has never been any child abuse in the past the jury will think there is ‘’no way’’ you could have killed your child)
5.) Create a very detailed story including fictitious characters (which during the trial will be masqueraded as ‘’fantasy characters’’ instead of calling them what they are; lies).
6.) Go ahead and do all of your pre-meditation searches on the computer because those can no longer prove pre-meditation (even if you were the only person at home while those searches were carried out.)
7.) Don’t worry about Canine Police Dogs hitting upon any scent of a decomposing body in your car because that no longer holds up as ‘’evidence” in a courtroom anymore.
8.) Throw an empty box of Velveeta cheese in the trunk of your car to cover up the human decomposition stench. It will cast ‘’reasonable doubt” because the testimony of senior law enforcement officials recognizing the smell of a dead body vs. food holds no credence anymore.
9.) Don’t worry about partying it up when your child is ‘’missing’’ because as the non-expert defense witness claimed ‘’everything is consistent with grief.”
This jury was instructed to go solely on evidence provided during the trial (meaning, testimony). Some of the jurors that have spoken since the verdict have implied they ‘’feel’’ it was indeed an accident that snowballed out of control and its probable Caylee did in fact drown in the pool. Was I watching the wrong trial, because last time I checked, there was no evidence of Caylee drowning in a pool at all in the entire duration of the trial. So how could they have based their verdict on this speculative defenses’ opening statement? This group of twelve veered far away from the jury instructions. As Prosecutor Jeff Ashton said, “if the jury based their verdict on George Anthony, it would be a breach of their duty as a juror.” He’s right. There is no probable way this jury would have found Casey Anthony Not Guilty if they followed the evidence presented during the trial alone. You don’t and shouldn’t come to a verdict based on the opening statement.
Mr. Professional Flippin’ off-the-Camera Cheney Mason boasted in his teams’ victory while admonishing the media for unfair coverage in the same manner Liberals blamed Sarah Palin for the Tucson massacre. Mason, speaking as if he just got off the movie set of ‘’Deliverance” said in an interview that Casey is ‘’tough, smart and quick.” You bet she is, just ask the detectives that worked tireless hours trying to find her daughter in ‘Zanny the Nanny’s’ hands while she knew her daughter was rotting in muck one mile from her home.
I always said during this case, the prosecution must ask the jury who would have benefited from Caylee no longer being around. For all those who have said the prosecution didn’t ‘’prove’’ motive (even though that state isn’t obligated to prove any motive) it makes me wonder what trial they were watching. Prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick couldn’t have done a better job proving Casey’s motive for killing Caylee. At the conclusion of her closing argument she asked the jury “whose life was better with Caylee being dead?” The last image she left the jury with were two pictures; Casey’s ‘’bella vita’’ tattoo and Casey grinding on a bar top in a short blue dress while Caylee was supposedly ‘’missing.” The jury must have been mapping out their vacation destinations to not have made the connection! I wonder if these were some of the same people who couldn’t figure out how to punch a chad on a ballot in 2000…
This jury also said they couldn’t convict Casey because there was no cause of death. It would be nice if it were explained to the jury prior to deliberations that the state does not need to prove cause of death. Let’s just try to put two and two together and maybe that will lead us to a cause of death; ‘how to make chloroform’ searches on the computer to chloroform found in the trunk of the car where human decomposition was hit upon by not one but two cadaver dogs. Hmm, I wonder what cause of death could have been! Three pieces of duct tape encompassing little Caylee’s nose and mouth. What are the two places we breathe from? I can hear the jeopardy song now…Where is common sense America? I haven’t felt this way since Obama was elected.
Furthermore some of the jurors have indicated they couldn’t convict Casey because first degree murder wasn’t proven. Did they forget there were two other counts they could have convicted her on: second degree and third degree? Did they not flip over to the next page? Not even child neglect was considered? A mother goes thirty one days without reporting her daughter missing and child neglect isn’t even considered (hence, why we need Caylee’s Law). One would receive a harsher punishment if they left Bingo in their car on a hot summer day! This is why an IQ test should be part of seating a jury.
Fox News host Geraldo Rivera continues to stand behind his BFF Jose Baez’s defense of Casey. Rivera claimed on his show last weekend that Anthony was a good mom. Right Geraldo, Casey Anthony is a good mom the way OJ Simpson was a good husband. Speaking of O.J., we saw then that even when there IS forensic evidence/DNA at a crime scene that sometimes that isn’t enough for a conviction! So Casey walks, and Caylee remains a heap of ashes in an urn because as O.J. prosecutor Marcia Clark said “jury’s confuse reasonable doubt with reason TO doubt.”
Hearing Not Guilty rendered three times felt as if the scale of justice just sat upon the hearts of those who solely sought justice for Caylee. Some say not to worry because ‘’the justice system worked.” Really? Who did it work for? Did is work for Caylee? Unfortunately, Casey will be back on the bar top in her mini blue dress in no time; just as the song says, ‘’Devil in the blue dress.” She in the end got what she wanted: freedom to play and ‘’La Bella Vita.” Justice was not served for Caylee but we can find solace knowing we have a just God. We must remember His promise in knowing Casey may be able to let her Rapunzel locks down and walk as a free woman now but His promise will remain true: “Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the LORD.” Romans 12:19
I remember the day the darling, brown haired, hazel eyed two year old Florida girl was reported ‘’missing” after her mom claimed she hadn’t seen her for thirty-one days. Any mom who is remiss to report her daughter missing for over a month is incomprehensible to most. Furthermore, any mom who is photographed partying and competing in hot body contests during that interim makes guilt pretty evident. Sure enough, Caylee’s remains were found six months later and her mom Casey is facing the death penalty.
I was listening to an analysis show last week after court went into recess. The panel was discussing the motive behind Casey killing Caylee. The majority on the panel agreed it was because Casey wanted her freedom and didn’t want to raise Caylee in the first place. Attorney/Women’s Libber, Lisa Bloom (daughter of spotlight queen attorney, Gloria Allred) made a ridiculous statement that should have connected some serious dots for viewers. Unfortunately it probably flew by the wayside. However, it hit my heart hard. Bloom said the Anthony case exemplifies ‘’why a mother should never be forced to carry a baby to full term.” Aaahh, ok Ms. Bloom, so in essence it would have been better if Casey would have just killed Caylee in the womb instead of waiting two years to kill her? This ignorant, insensitive comment really made me think about the correlation between abortion and child homicide. This correlation is rarely talked about and rarely made. However, they are the very same things that encompass the very same motive and have the very same outcome.
Murder is defined as the taking of another life. What signals life? A heart beat. When someone is checking for a sign of life what do they look for? A heart beat. A fetus has a heartbeat at four weeks old thus, it is a life. By time the majority of women (who tend to find out at least four weeks after conception) find out she is pregnant, there is already a heartbeat. So when one does away with the heartbeat they are doing away with a life. When a woman goes to abort her child, all measures are taken in order to stop the heartbeat of the child which ultimately ceases the child’s life. If there is a heartbeat that means there is life. If you stop the heartbeat you stop the life. One can only be pronounced dead when there is no heartbeat. It’s pretty simple. You don’t need to be a doctor to figure this out.
So, why is it that if a child is in the womb the mother has the right to stop the heart beat, (kill/murder) the child but when the child is outside the womb they aren’t allowed to do so? In both cases, the mother makes the choice to stop the heartbeat of the child. In both cases, the child suffers a horrible death. In both cases the mother chooses the life will no longer continue. Truth is, there is no difference. Both have the same end result; the cessation of a heartbeat, the cessation of a life.
So when Liberal talking heads like Lisa Bloom argue the Casey Anthony case exemplifies why a woman shouldn’t be ‘’forced’’ to carry a baby if she doesn’t want to, it clearly exemplifies the hypocrisy of the pro-abortion mentality. Therefore, in context of this deranged mindset, if Casey would have been able to muffle Caylee and stop her heartbeat while Caylee was in her belly, that ‘’choice’’ would have been okay according to Bloom. I know many will use the washed up argument that ‘’it’s a woman’s body and she can do what she wants with her body.” No it’s not her body. It is a body inside of her body. It is the baby’s heartbeat she is stopping not her own heartbeat. It is the child’s limbs that are being torn off, not her limbs. If Casey Anthony wanted to go chloroform herself, throw herself in the trunk of her car, put duct tape around her own mouth then throw her body in the woods to rot, that is her body. That is her choice. But since she did it to another person, she is being tried for homicide. Why is the separation of personhood only acknowledged after birth? Last time I checked when a woman is pregnant there are two heartbeats; the mom’s and the child’s. They are two separate entities. The whole ‘’it’s my body’’ argument is a sheepish way out for a woman to ignore the reality of her babies personhood. It is a way out for her to acknowledge she is stopping her little girl or little boy’s heart beat. This is the very reason Planned Parenthood is hell bent on overturning laws that require a woman to have a sonogram prior to terminating her child’s life. That mother will see the heartbeat and that baby’s personhood will speak for itself, thus proving it’s alive and she is about to kill it.
So, why can’t Casey’s defense team argue that it was Casey’s “choice” to kill Caylee? What is the difference? What is the difference if Casey ‘’chose’’ to kill little Caylee when she was in her belly or that she “chose” to kill Caylee outside of her belly? Each method would have the same outcome; death.
Furthermore, why is it considered double homicide when someone murders a woman who is pregnant if it’s not a person? For instance, Scott Peterson who murdered his wife Laci and unborn son Conner in 2002 was tried for double homicide. He was not solely tried for the death of Laci but that of their unborn child. This is an admission that little Conner was a life. Scott didn’t want to be married anymore and he didn’t want Conner so he did away with them. Millions of women do away with their children every day in the name of ‘’choice’’ and they aren’t put on trial for it.
The hypocrisy of the pro-abortion movement is exemplified in murder cases every day. Andrea Yates drowned all her children in a bath tub what was it called? Homicide. Susan Smith drove her car into a watery grave killing her three babies. What was it called? Homicide. In all cases the heartbeat of the child was stopped and the child’s breathing ceased. Truth is, when a woman walks into an abortion clinic she is going to abort her baby; meaning she is going to put a stop to the heartbeat which will ultimately end up in the cessation of the child’s breathing. This will lead to the death of the child. So why is it when a woman stops the heartbeat of her child in the womb is that not considered homicide?
According to the pro-abortionists, there should be no outrage over Casey killing Caylee because it was her “choice.” There should be no trial because Casey didn’t want Caylee just the same way millions of mothers feel as they walk into Planned Parenthood. I guess the pro-choicers can say Casey should be found innocent because in essence she did the same thing an abortion does except she waited two years to carry out the execution. What? Is it different because the child had a name? What if we personified and named all the unborn children? Would that make a difference? The pro-choicer’s shouldn’t be upset with Casey for killing Caylee. She just ‘’chose’’ she didn’t want her anymore right? 58 million moms have done the same thing since the implementation of Roe vs. Wade; the biggest child death sentence of all. Although those children didn’t have duct tape put around their mouth like little Caylee, they all, like Caylee, were discarded like trash.
