Hey Casey Anthony, you’re not that smart

I’m still riveted by the Casey Anthony trial. I think she’s a brilliant liar and sociopath. Yes, I know that she got visibly sick last week at the pictures of Caylee’s remains. But, I think it’s because she’s guilty. I also think this could have had a different ending.

Somewhere in Florida live a hardworking husband and devoted wife that fell in love in college. They live in a modest home in a middle class neighborhood, tithe at their church and have a vast network of friends. He likes to golf, she likes to garden and together they like to drive to the beach and talk long walks on the shore. But, something’s missing.

For years, they’ve tried to have a child of their own. They’ve spent thousands of dollars on fertility treatment to no avail and have just enough money left for a private adoption. They’ve been on a list for a couple of years and patiently wait their turn.

They don’t care if it’s a newborn. They just want a happy, healthy child to complete their lives. They have so much love and time to give and can’t wait to have a family. They wait and pray and yearn for the chance to have a child. There are hundreds of families, just in state of Florida, just like them.

If Casey Anthony wanted to be free and party she had a number of options. If she were smart, adoption would have been at the top of her list (and it would’ve kept her out of the courtroom and potentially death row). But, that’s not the choice she made.

Caylee Anthony didn’t go to a loving family. Instead, her body was discarded in a field near her grandparents home. Her mouth was covered with duct tape. What a tragedy and a shame.

What are your thoughts now that the prosecution’s about to rest?

    She’s ridiculously guilty. Interesting that her lawyer pulled the “her death was an accident and Grandpa was there wen it happened” but then never gave an explanation as to why her body ended up covered with duct tape in a field. If she had drowned, they would have called 911, right? What loving parent and grandparents allow the desecration of a child’s body out in nature by animals and bugs, for pete’s sake? This whole case has made me nuts. She tells lies to cover up lies told to cover up other lies. At least her parents are starting to see her for who she really is, though that may be their biggest source of agony yet. That she would turn on the very people who have tried so hard to make others believe in her innocence.
