If you read my posts on this blog, you will note I am addicted to current events and the latest ‘news updates.’
This week, while writing, I have been listening to TruTV and the Casey Anthony Trial. Looking at her, with her puffed up lips, smirks, and laughter – occasionally, I can’t help being a bit curious as to what is on her mind. At times, she sits writing on legal pads. Other times, her face is tight, with that dreadful lip pouting.
Watching her family sitting together, testifying LOTS, I recognize the dysfunctions of a family that probably will never be healed. I did not buy into the testimony of Cindy Anthony and her computer skills. I did not buy into the testimony of George either. Who cares if he had an affair with “River Cruz?” What is significant is how desperate this family appears to be to ‘save Casey.’
I have followed this story since the beginning. I saw the compelling pictures of Caley while thinking ‘what a gorgeous little girl. How can a mother not come forward and admit that her daughter is missing? And — how can a mother go out and party with friends, shopping, and other outings when she knows the real truth about her daughter?’
This scenario is so unbelievable. Only Casey knows the truth and I suspect she knows she did something tragic to her daughter.
Caley was such a beautiful child — with piercing eyes and a beautiful face. Her life was cut so short. Is it true that Casey did not want to be a mom? Yes, motherhood is demanding and it is certainly different from babysitting, but Casey had the support of grandparents who adored Caley.
The truth will never be revealed — unless Casey takes the witness stand. I certainly hope she decides to step onto the witness stand and I hope the prosecutors truly rip her to shreds. Let us see her cry and let her tell us in her words exactly what happened to Caley.
The more I think about this story, the angrier I get at Casey. I simply do not understand how a mother can be such a monster. Years ago, South Carolina had a monster like Casey — Susan Smith. At least she finally came forward and admitted her guilt. Why can’t Casey Anthony?
Casey, if you are reading this, shame on you for all that you have done. The evidence revealed so far speaks for itself and if I was a member of the jury, I would not buckle one inch. I’d find you guilty and I would agree to the death penalty. You took the life of a precious child. May you never see the beauty of sunshine or freedom again!
