A Vast Parental Conspiracy?

By Adele

If Casey Anthony could party hard for a month while her daughter Caylee was missing, and be aquitted of every charge related to Caylee’s disappearance and death, one can only conclude the jury wore mental earplugs and blindfolds.

It’s a disturbing pattern.

Juries who refuse to convict or recommend the maximum punishment to mothers like Casey Anthony must be thinking…“There, but for the grace of God, go I.”

They’re the people who put a book called Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach in the No. 1 spot on a NY Times bestseller list.

It’s no secret that kids can be as annoying as hell.

I believe parents on juries recall times when they’d have liked to forget their own brats existed, just for a little break from parenthood.

But would they ever want to end up on Death Row for it? Hell, no!

Remember Susan Smith, the South Carolina woman who incensed the country in 1994 after drowning her 1- and 3-year-old sons in a lake and making up a story about a black carjacker, when she really did it to please her child-averse lover?

When the truth first came out, everybody wanted Smith’s head on a platter. But as time dragged on, people started thinking, “Oh, the poor woman. She’s suffered enough. She lost all her children.”

Smith faced the death penalty, too, but got only a life sentence and could be freed in 2024. In the meantime, she has no worries because the taxpayers provide her room and board.

These mothers’ heinous, heartless crimes always seem to turn in their favor. They get sympathy over losing their children when THEY are the reason their kids are dead.

The wilful dismissal of facts and disconnect from reality that infects conservative political ideology bleeds into courtrooms. Jurors refuse to find guilt because they know they themselves are guilty of at least passing fantasies of what life would be like without the kids. If they start punishing each other for that, who’s next?

Innocent, defenseless children born to monsters don’t have a chance. They can be butchered and tossed out like garbage and the adults who should have protected them shrug it off, claiming no amount of “evidence” will prove it even happened.

For all we know, this idiot jury believes Caylee Anthony is still alive somewhere because the skeletal remains may not really be hers.

When parents put self-preservation first, there will never be justice for children.

    It is always interesting in cases and verdicts that become widely public. The public eye has the chance learn a person as a psychiatrist would. We observe the smallest things that a person does. This, along with putting together 1+1 allows us to put together an intuitive judgement on a suspected criminal. The human intuition is a great thing that a lot of the time is right. But in our judicial system intuition just doesn’t work. Concrete evidence is what works. We will continue to be torn in-between these conditions when we recognize that there are individuals who are serving time for crimes they did not commit, along with individuals who are acquitted from crimes that they committed with no remorse. Both of these situations hurt just as bad because it affects human beings lives, whether that be a loss of a life, or a life lost.

    You hit the nail on the head again! I hope Casey’s life is will be perfectly horrible until the day she dies. I hope no one buys the book or sees the movie and pays no attention to anything that comes from her hand. Imagine, how ashamed you would be if the facts of your lying life would be were they aired like Casey’s – yet she showed NO indication of shame or remorse. Party on kid – someday you will slip up again and then all hell will break loose – it’s in your makeup – just like OJ.

    neatov, you’re right about intuition being incompatible with the law, but if it weren’t for detectives’ intuition about when somebody is lying (like when Casey took a few detectives to Universal Studios, where she claimed she worked, and actually got them past a guard and into a building before she finally cracked and admitted she didn’t work there), a lot of clues would never be discovered and criminals would be running amok because the conviction rate would be way lower than it already is.

    Anne, what I found priceless was Casey’s demeanor on Thursday when she went bopping back to court for sentensing, all smiles and with her hair flowing. They said she lost the sass as soon as the judge said she wasn’t going home that day. Now they’ve changed the day from next Wednesday to a week from Sunday, but Marcia Clark said both dates are probably wrong. They’re just throwing dates out there to throw off the press and any crazies who might want to inflict some vigilante justice on her.

    Like you, I have no doubt Casey will end up on Skid Row or worse. In a few years, we’ll hear she’s been stripping in some low-class tourist dive since she got out of jail. On the other hand, I just read that Jerry Springer has offered the whole family a cool million to appear on his show, and that they are “very interested.”

    The trial should have been moved from “Orlando-tucky” to an area where the jury gene pool would have been less inbred ,and more receptive to the complicated forensics involved.

    Morgan, I think I read that the jury was bused in from St. Petersburg. Obviously, they had a hard time understanding the concept that air doesn’t pass through duct tape.
