    This is a step in the right direction:

    Rep. Paul Wesselhoft announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a law called the "Caylee's law" in his state requiring parents to swiftly report the death or disappearance of a child in Oklahoma's 2012 legislative session. In his statement, he explained that many of his constituents thought Casey "escaped true justice," and he wants to prevent that from ever happening again.

    He added: "It is unconscionable for a parent to delay notifying the authorities of the death of their child. Most parents would immediately notify authorities if their child had gone missing. Any delay could endanger the life of the child and, in the case of a child's death, make it that much harder to collect evidence. I think the actions of Caylee's mother were reprehensible … Violation of this law would be a maximum misdemeanor or a felony conviction. Oklahomans do not want to experience a situation such as what occurred in the Caylee Anthony case."

    I was watching commentary today and, apparently, when Casey is released, it will be up to her to get to her next location. Where ever that will be. The police will no longer provide her protection so her lawyers say that they may help her.

    And no probation for the check stealing charges ~ they counted her time in prison towards her probation.

    Amen!

    They were sharing some of her jailhouse letters last night-I'm not sure who she was writing to, but she was talking about wanting to have another child-wishing she could adopt because there are so many kids out there who need love. :(

    Everyday children come up missing or abused or
    hurt and we all go merrily along. The media seized on this case and made it our crime du jour. We have been stewing with it seemingly for years. The innocent little child, grieving grands and a callous party girl. Great theatre. The play ended with a clunk and with the wrong ending. "Burn her at the stake, justice for Caylee. Stupid people on the jury. Bleeding heart libs, morons or worse.
    Yes, all the evidence pointed to a crime. A sad senseless act that had a little girl thrown in the woods like so much garbage. I have to go with the old words that "if it walks and talks and looks like a duck then it is." A person that has never really been responsible for her actions once again is not held accountable for her actions. She was the parent. She was supposed to protect and nurture and love the child. She obviously did not. Her PEERS said she was a great mom. HER PEERS.
    Imagine that. I am sure they are paragons of great parenting and experienced beyond our meager ideas of parenthood. So time served is time done.
    I think many of us have wasted too much time thinking about this person of such high moral principals and exemplary actions. If anything is to be learned we should ALL be more vigilant about children in our sphere. A hated woman once said "it takes a village to raise a child" I wish the village had been a little more closer and attuned to this child's existence.

    I see nothing wrong with discussing this case if one wishes to. Likewise, if another does not desire to engage in conversations about this case, he or she has that same right. The point of this thread, as indicated by its title, is to discuss the Casey Anthony case. Anyone who wishes to do so has that right.

    No justice for little Caylee. I can't imagine how they got 12 jurors to reach that verdict! If I was on the jury, we'd still be deliberating--or hung!

    One of the letters said she'd like to adopt a child from Ireland with an accent...if that doesn't show how shallow she is, just views kids as cute amusements...:dizzy:

    Even if she wasn't convicted, I believe in Karma. She will get what she deserves. Just wait...

    Most of the comments do not make sense to me. I even know some lousy parents who have expressed similar disrespect for Casey Anthony. I admit that I do not understand or like her partying when her child is missing. But when so many others judge without at least a smoking gun, then I wonder if we have a problem and carry some blame - maybe society is to blame for what she has become.

    Personally (and I'm not attacking you) I think this argument is a cop out. At what age do you (generic you) decide to take responsibility for your own decisions and actions?

    It is funny whenever someone says that some responsibility should be taken, people say that is judgmental :confused:
