There are no words for the kind of injustice that Florida has laid down today... That's just sad.
Probably because Casey is waifish and child-like in appearance. She elicits sympathy. Or at least interest. She's the eternal child-woman. If you are old enough to remember her, this was Bardot's secret. She sure as hell couldn't act.Either way, there were probably 20-30 Casey Anthonys this year. Why did this one get so much attention?
Oh believe me, I think she's a terrible human being. I even think that she did it. But if we just lower the standard of proof because "well everyone knows she did it," what's keeping the court from doing it if you or I gets put in the defendant's chair?phideaux_2003 said:Wow, I didn't realize there was so much tolerance of dispicable behavior in here... Or in Florida. Maybe Dexter Morgan will take care of her...
Best I understand the body was found in a swampy area near the home.phideaux_2003 said:So a woman neglects her child, allows it to die, perhaps she killed it, perhaps her dad did, we'll sort those minor issues out later... She allows the child to die, the child isn't reported missing for a month, then the child ends up actually being buried for 6 months. I didn't see where they found the body... Was it in a back yard or something?
I don't know. I'm sure at some point they decide which charges they are going to bring. In this case, it seems they went for murder 1 and manslaughter (not sure how you do that), plus obviously some lesser counts of providing faulty info to the cops.phideaux_2003 said:So the child is dead, missing and the mother is partying...
Is there not enough evidence right here to bring her up on child neglect and desicration of a cadaver?!
Actually, most places, if your child got into the street and was run over it would most likely be ruled an accident absent any grossly irresponsible behaviour. Children are run over and drown a lot, unfortunately. Usually it is a tragic accident and no one is charged with a crime.phideaux_2003 said:If I have a child and I let the child run out in the street and the child is killed by a car, who gets charged with child neglect? ME!
