Parental instincts says Casey Anthony did it

It would be tough to live without my girl Celine

Let’s skip all legal mumbo jumbo. Casey Anthony killed her daughter Caylee and got off Scott free. She will be a free woman to do as she pleases and as a parent it sickens me.

But I understand why the jury found her not guilty. The prosecution did not prove without a reasonable doubt that Anthony killed her daughter. I admit that I base my suspicions of guilt solely on the emotions of being a parent who loves his children more than anything else.

How can you go 31 days without telling authorities that your child is missing? How many of you could do that? How many of you would do that?

Let me tell you the real life story about my daughter Celine. Last year she was reported missing by one of the soccer parents on our team. Celine was supposed to go home to her friend Sami’s and I was going to pick her up at Sami’s house after work.

Practice was normal. But afterwards Celine did not trot off the field with Sami. She disappeared completely. Sami’s mother called me and told me Celine vanished while I was on radio. All of the air in my body was sucked out. I had a panic attack and immediately left and rushed to my car.

My breathing was short and raspy. I thought my heart was going to explode out of my chest. I was in tears.

Fifteen minutes later I found out what happened. There was a last-minute arrangement between my mother and wife for grandma to pick up Celine. That message was not relayed to me or the other parent. I could finally breathe. It was the worst 15 minutes of my life.

There is no way I could go back to normal life until my daughter was found safe and sound. You would not see me in a bar other than to pass out fliers of Celine’s picture. You would not see me acting normal because I would fear the worst.

Our children sometimes drive us crazy. We sometimes wonder if we are doing the right thing in raising them. But they are our flesh, blood and tears. They are our hearts. It is impossible for a normal loving parent to see their child missing and life goes on.

I know I couldn’t do it.

      An interesting discussion might be priced at comment. I think that it is best to write more on that topic, it might not be considered a taboo subject but generally individuals are not enough to communicate on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    Well said Terry. You hit the nail right on the head. Human and parental instinct is too strong not to panic should, god forbid your child goes missing. A similar miscommunication happened involving myself as a child. It ended with my Father making his 20 minute drive home from work in less than 5.

    Just wait until one of these psychopaths kills your loved one and gets aways with it because there are so many un”reasonable” people in this society. There is no “reasonable” doubt here IMO. This verdict gives criminals everywhere a reason to rejoice.

    This trial is a great example of how the media convicts and quite honestly refreshing to see that they don’t always have to power to convict.

    I think the jurors just couldn’t believe someone could be so shallow that they would even consider killing their baby just to be able to continue living a party lifestyle. Unfortunately I believe its possible so I feel differently than the jury pool but who knows I only caught coverage in passing so I’ll accept they know better than me.

    Personally I can’t believe they let her off, but then again I had Nancy Grace explain the motive to me…

    I must say that the best part of this trial being over is that Nancy Grace will slowly move out of the spotlight for at least a short period of time.

    It is sad she got off Scott free and it just shows the flaw in our legal system ! Too bad really. Case Anthony murdered her daughter just as OJ murdered his ex-wife. This is very unsettling that this happened and the prosecution and jury dropped the ball. But one thing I can tell you, is Casey Anthony will have to answer to god, and she has to live with this the rest of her life. She will be villified for this and have to deal with that, also.

    This was very sad and I hope justice will be served someday for what she has done.

    4 years time served seems like a weak sentence. Regardless though she was given a life judgement by the media, this trial is something she will never escape.

Ideally,the bag should either be dry cleaned or taken back to the point of purchase so that they can find a place that will remove the stains from the bag. Health Station Dr Lee said after the incident the patient’s family to come to make trouble. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this web site.
