The Bizarre World of Casey Anthony
8/29/2008 4:59:05 PM
A few thoughts on the circus and drama surrounding the disappearance and probable murder of Caylee Anthony.
I feel as though I am living in bizarro world. I live in Orlando Florida; the place where three-year-old Caylee Anthony either has disappeared, or has been murdered or even accidentally killed by her mother, Casey Anthony.
Casey and her co-dependent mother, Cindy, have been adamantly claiming that Caylee was kidnapped. Meanwhile, Casey has proven to be a pathological liar. To add to the drama, Leonard Padilla, a TV bounty hunter, posted a $500,000 bond so Ms. Anthony could get out of jail last week. He says, his motivation was that Casey said if she could get out of jail, she could help in the search for her missing three-year-old daughter. Only she hasn’t. Not for one second.
He threatened to revoke her bond when forensic evidence showed a dead body had indeed once been in the trunk of Casey’s vehicle. Later we learned other evidence showed the body was that of her three-year old, Caylee.
Today, Padilla decided not to revoke Casey’s bond. No one understood why.
WELL…sigh…they just cut into Friday night prime time TV showing a convoy of police vehicles at the Anthony home, to re-arrest Casey.
My first reaction was, they found the body and have come to arrest her for murder, or negligent homicide. However, I was wrong. They arrested her for check fraud and thievery.
The most bizarre aspect of the whole episode tonight was the crowd of people outside the Anthony home, screaming profanities at Casey and her family; calling her a killer. I can understand the banners and signs, but I cannot understand screaming on the top of your lungs at people who don’t have a care in the world for anything being said. The Anthony’s live in their own world.
It is so sad to see people feel they have a right to disrespect all of Anthony’s neighbors in such a way. And what of poor Caylee? How is any of that NOISE honoring her memory? The memory of an innocent child who died because she was an inconvenience to her mother; a mother, whose own mother demanded her daughter be a parent, when Casey knew she couldn’t do it.
There is so much blame to go around in this tragic situation. My heart goes out to little Caylee, may she now know the peace she always deserved. And to the Anthony neighbors, all I can say is: please call the police, have them remove the protestors. You don’t need to tolerate such disgrace in your neighborhood.
