Now that I am a stay at home wife I have plenty of time to catch up on current events.The hubs comes home everyday to me watching CNN or HLN. My favorite daily activity is watching the Casey Anthony trial.
My degree is actually in Criminal Justice and right after college I worked at my city's police department in the Juvenile division as a clerk. The unit dealt with missing person's, sexual and physical abuse of a child, neglect and domestic violence. I remember when the Casey Anthony story originally broke. It was so sad to think of a mother killing her child. I was also working the night the story broke that little Caylee's body was found. I remember all of us commenting that she was guilty
So now I am all wrapped up in the trial and am eager and anxious to see what the jury decides. I so wish I would have gone to law school!.
Personally if it was me I would convict her
And here is why...
1. If she was innocent why all the lie's? Why make up a nanny, a job, and accuse her father and brother of sexual assault if she was innocent. And what good do those allegations do anyway. There is no report of sexual abuse made to the police. NO physical evidence. It can't be proved. And even if they did sexually abuse her, does that make it ok for her to kill her daughter
2. What parent would wait a month before reporting her daughter missing. And during that month this same parent partied all the time, got a tattoo in remembrance of her daughter and spent time with her boyfriend, making no reference to Caylee or trying to find her supposedly missing daughter
3. I do not understand why Cindy is covering for her daughter.That boggles my mind. Even yesterday when the defense tried to make George Anthony look bad by commenting on how he wouldn't place his house up for bond money I had to laugh. My dad is a detective and from little on we were told if my brother and I ever ended up in jail we were not to call him. He would not get us out. And my dad would do anything for us. But the law is the law and he believes people should suffer the consequences of their actions.
4. The supposed mistress. She cracks me up. Regardless if they actually had an affair, Im not sure what that has to do with a murder trial. I understand the defense is trying to make George look less credible as a witness but come on. This woman is lying! My dad has been in law enforcement for 33 years. He is an awesome interrogator and has spent numerous time in court testifying. He always says you can spot a liar by those who shift their eyes, look all around the room and can't maintain eye contact. She def couldn't look at one spot for long. And her selling her story to the National Inquirer because they would tell the truth. Please!
5. There are just so many inconsistencies. I def don't feel the defense proved anything they claimed in their opening statement. So now we all have to wait and see what the jury decides. What do you all think. Are any of you as obsessed with this trial as I am?
