Are You Angry at Casey Anthony’s Release?

Today Casey Anthony was released from a Florida jail and an angry group of people were there to yell and hold up signs decreeing her guilt. People are angry even though the justice system worked the way it was supposed to in this case. There was not enough evidence to link this questionable mother to the murder of her daughter. And when that is the case, a jury can’t find a person guilty. So our anger is not so much at a system that works, but at this woman’s outrageous behavior which leads us to believe she is guilty. Fortunately in America, that is not enough to convict someone of a serious crime with a possible death penalty.

But this disturbed woman does anger us. We don’t want to see any mother partying when her toddler is missing. We don’t like her blank stares into space. We don’t like the way she dismissed her mother and appears cold and unfeeling. We don’t like the family dysfunction with accusations of sexual abuse and child neglect. Basically, Casey Anthony’s likability factor is very low, like the villain in a movie–you don’t want the bad guys to get away without paying for the crime.

Add to this an unsolved case. We don’t like not have answers. We don’t like the idea that someone murdered this child and is getting away with it. We need a target, someone to blame. Otherwise, life feels too out of control.

I pray the police continue to investigate and find out who did kill this child. I pray that Casey Anthony does not continue down a road of pathology–capitalizing off her daughter’s death. And I pray that we let go of judging a person found not guilty by the law. God knows who murdered that child and that person will one day face Him.

 

Are you angry? Tell me why?

    I had a psychopathic boss for 13 years and I can tell you: Casey Anthony is a psychopath…she lies coldly, without breaking a sweat; she is totally selfish, without any empathy or emotions for anyone else.

    Our legal system has to prove guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt”. What reasonable doubt could anyone have that she didn’t kill her daughter? Unfortunately, nowadays people can’t add two plus two and get four on their own. They require DNA evidence, a tape recorded confession or they won’t convict. If the forensics team can’t tell you exactly how the victim died, the fact that there was duct tape over the victim’s mouth doesn’t mean a thing–might have been an accident!

    Psychopaths know that their best strategy is to lie, lie, lie. Never stop lying! Lying is their strong point. They can lie so well that the jurors will say, “Well, we just can’t tell who is telling the truth, so we’ll have to find the defendent innocent. I’ve seen it happen with my ex-boss. It worked for O.J., and it might work for you, too!

    Casey Anthony should have been found guilty of murder. She is a liar. She had a strong motive. Her behavior was not that of a grieving mother, but that of a cold-blooded psychopathic murderer. There was ample evidence that Caylee was murdered, no evidence that she died in an accident.

    What is the reasonable doubt of her innocence? Please be specific.
