    I've been following the Casey Anthony case since it started, and I can't help being appalled and disgusted by everything that's been happening. I want to discuss this case with other people and hear what they have to say, but no one out here has been following this (at least anyone I know). Have you heard about the case? If so, what do you think?

    *I cringe as I type this, but PLEASE read carefully before posting: I AM NOT TRYING TO START AN ARGUMENT OR A FIGHT!!! I want to discuss this CIVILLY AND RESPECTFULLY! Whatever your opinions may be, please represent them in a courteous manner. A lot of people think Casey Anthony is a monster (my opinion is somewhat along those lines) but that doesn't mean people who think otherwise need to be attacked, belittled, or talked down to. Likewise, those who do think poorly of this individual should NOT be disrespectful to those who don't. This isn't a discussion that will amount to a hill of beans in the long run, so don't treat it like the whole world will see it. (This will be especially difficult for me LOL!)

    Thanks, everyone, and I really hope to be able to discuss this!

    My thoughts on things like this are that unless you're involved, it goes a good way towards taking your mind off of more pressing matters. These things are sad, and sadly not as uncommon as people would like to think, but sensationalism and riled up emotions never helps anything.

    I think that her mother's intuition was right when she called the police and wanted something done to find her granddaughter. I know that now she is supporting her daughter and that is normal but she knew in her heart that her daughter had done something wrong with her child and was really panicked. I don't know what happened to the child but I think that Casey either sold her daughter or killed her. It's sad to think that a mother can do these things to a child. I just don't buy the story Casey is putting out there about looking for her daughter all those weeks. A caring mother would have let other people in on it to help at least.

    Quote:I guess that's the thing I don't understand. I know if my child was missing you better believe everyone on the continent would know. That's the reason I think she knows where the child is or did something to her, cause otherwise she would have notified the police. Also the fact that she lied. That little girl is so beautiful, I can't help following the story. I want to either hear that she's been found and she's safe or to hear that the person responsible has been prosecuted and will rot for the next million years. Right now it seems that person is Casey. I don't know if Casey killed Caylee, but I truly believe she had something to do with whatever is going on. Part of me is curious about this Zenaida person. Casey pronounces the name correctly, making the 'd' sound like a 'th' like the Spanish pronounciation is, so she's either met someone named Zenaida or has experience with the Spanish language. All I know is something has to be fishy, and my opinion is that if she really cared she would be doing whatever she could to help, rather than lying.

    I think you're right about the grandma's intuition as well. She knew something was wrong, even though now she's trying to cover that up.

    I have heard of it, but I don't figure it is any of my business. It is her family's and the police's. When there is an actual factual accounting instead of speculation and rumor, then I will read about it. Maybe.

    * We can't avoid it-- until we get moved, I suppose. Seems like there is some mention at every newscast, and paper, even when they have nothing new to report. All this re-hashing and sensationalism of so many stories makes me wonder sometimes how the ever find enough people to serve on juries anymore. . .

    Unfortunately people are sick. They do sell their children to drug dealers for "prostitution", and all that very very sick stuff.
    On the level of cadaver dogs, I have worked behind the scenes with handlers of cadaver dogs or scent dogs, only to be disappointed in certain cases.
    Dogs are only as good as their handlers allow them to be. What constitutes as "cadaver scent"? Old body oil? Old blood from a bloody nose, cut knee- granted its in the trunk, but I am speaking from the questions on the whole.
    Another issue with cadaver dogs is that they are often trained on deer, pig or a vial of "donor" tissue from a "farm" to train with. At what stage is the dog trained at in decomp?
    Then I have seen handlers look at a area, and say, "Nope, an old man cannot make it through there". Even when the family can smell something, the dog is sniffing, and the handler decides that due to the forest growth, will pull the dog in another direction.

    Not saying I know more then an expert, absolutely not, but when you have all this "proof" with out an actual body, witness or cause, how can you exclude the possibility that she may have given up the child to a family that may have been better. Even selling a child or trading a child for drugs, perhaps that child is in a better place- we do not know what goes on behind closed doors, and if 1 daughter came out this way, perhaps she didn't want to see her baby endure her mothers life...

    To be honest, I do feel the little girl has been put to "rest", feeling she is at peace now. What a mess and the process of this whole circus event is. I'll be eager to see what others have to say. Perhaps I can get a few opinions from Mom for this site- that would be interesting!
    Have a great day!

    I can't imagine what happened, but I have a feeling either we'll never find out, or we WILL find out and something extremely horrifying will have happened.

    Either way, I don't think the little girl is going to be back.
  9. I feel that caylee is dead and her mother knows where she is,I was talking to DH about it the other night and it seems like the human race is the only one where the mother will harm their children. Most animals will fight to the death for their babies. Ican only hope and pray for a happy ending to this story. [​IMG] marrie

    This is the first I've heard of this case. I don't follow "news" of this sort, because it isn't. News, I mean, is what it isn't.

    There are hurricanes destroying the already miserable poor of Haiti, floods everywhere in TX, bombs blowing up in India, Russia and the U.S. headed back toward the warpath, and the single most important election in which you'll ever vote on this troubled planet. Hope you're registered to vote.

    People's personal miseries and criminal behavior deserve attention from their own community and from the judicial system. But fake news only serves to distract you and me from the dangerous changing climate tht has threatened our brothers and sisters along the Gulf Coast, in India and Africa, and elsewhere. It keeps our attention off the criminal, warmongering government, and the plight of the desperately poor and ill in our own cities and around this pretty little globe.

    I hope justice is served, or the dear kid found, or whatever it is you are praying for, but I also wish we could all just forget about Brangelina AND about this miserable woman you're talking about. They are both (intentional?) distractions from the larger reality and from other ways to spend our time or think about the world.

    I'll stop now and go cough some more (I'm sick and stuck at home). Think I'll go make some more calls for the Obama campaign [​IMG].
