Today at 2:15 pm the verdict for the murder of little Caylee Anthony was announced...her mother, Casey, was charged with 1st Degree Murder, Aggravated Murder of a Child, Child Abuse, and 4 counts of lying to the police. Casey was found NOT guilty for the first three. However, she was found GUILTY in all 4 counts of lying.
My parents (mostly Mom) and I have been following this case since Caylee was put on Amber Alert. My mom raced home from being out-and-about to watch the verdict with me. It felt like a repeat of OJ Simpson's trial (even though I wasn't alive then), but each second felt like an eon. My heart stopped when I heard the 'NOT GUILTY' verdict. My trust in our Justice System has been shattered. Another Child Killer gets away with murder.
Like I said on Amy's Facebook status " Michigan would've called her guilty, we have a strong hatred for child killers due to the Berkley Child Killer years back. I won't ever be moving there [Orlando, Florida]."
It's a terrible day for America....it's a terrible day for the state of Florida. To learn more of the case click here or here.
RIP Little Caylee, maybe someday justice will be served. =(
