Where is the Justice for Caylee???

My heart is breaking for this little girl today Caylee Anthony.
I believe in my heart that justice was not served today as her Mother walks free from all charges.
I guess the hardest one to swallow is she didn't even get it for child neglect.  Her child was supposedly missing for 31 days and she didn't report it ~ is that not child neglect???  To me this is very sad, if her Mother didn't do this, WHO DID????  We may never know.
It is also sad that she can not be retried and she could possibly make millions from this.

Casey Anthony cleared of murdering young daughter

Casey Anthony, center, is overcome with emotion following her acquittal of murder charges at the Orange County Courthouse in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, July 5, 2011. Anthony had been charged with killing her daughter, Caylee.
ORLANDO, Fla. — Casey Anthony's eyes welled with tears and her lips trembled as the verdict was read once, twice and then a third time: "Not guilty" of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Outside the courthouse, many in the crowd of 500 reacted with anger, chanting, "Justice for Caylee!" One man yelled, "Baby killer!"
In one of the most divisive verdicts since O.J. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife, Anthony was cleared Tuesday of murder, manslaughter and child-abuse charges after weeks of wall-to-wall TV coverage and armchair-lawyer punditry that one of her attorneys denounced as "media assassination."
Anthony, 25, was convicted only of four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators who were looking into the child's June 2008 disappearance.
Anthony could get up to a year behind bars on each count when she is sentenced Thursday. But since she has been in jail for nearly three years already, she could walk free. Had she been convicted of murder, she could have gotten the death penalty.
After a trial of a month and a half, the Florida Ninth Judicial Circuit Court jury took less than 11 hours to reach a verdict in a case that had become a national cable TV sensation, with its CSI-style testimony about the smell of death inside a car trunk and its storyline about a seemingly self-centered, hard-partying young mother.
Prosecutors contended that Anthony _ a single mother living with her parents _ suffocated Caylee with duct tape because she wanted to be free to hit the nightclubs and spend time with her boyfriend.
Defense attorneys argued that the little girl accidentally drowned in the family swimming pool, and that Anthony panicked and concealed the death because of the traumatic effects of sexual abuse by her father.
State's Attorney Lawson Lamar said: "We're disappointed in the verdict today because we know the facts and we've put in absolutely every piece of evidence that existed." The prosecutor lamented the lack of hard evidence, saying, "This is a dry-bones case. Very, very difficult to prove. The delay in recovering little Caylee's remains worked to our considerable disadvantage."
Anthony failed to report Caylee's disappearance for a month. The child's decomposed body was eventually found in the woods near her grandparents' home six months after she was last seen. A medical examiner was never able to establish how she died, and prosecutors had only circumstantial evidence that Caylee had been killed.
Grace said after the jury's decision: "There is no way that this is a verdict that speaks the truth."

May You RIP

She may not pay now but will in the end...wish it were sooner though...I can't believe it either Robin...so very sad that people can kill children and get away with it.

It may seem like she's getting by with it now, but not really. Caylee is in a far better place as far as I am concerned.
So much happens in this sick world anymore an I sure don't pretend to understand it, there are a few things in this life that are absolutely certain, we all will die and we all will stand before God to give account. When they were showing the pictures of that babies' skull and body parts, the mother couldn't look~ I wanted to reach through that screen and say Look at her! This is what you have done! It is very heartbreaking to see these things happen to young, innocent children. Many people are very angry, as well we should be. I am of the mind it will not get better until Jesus returns.
Sorry for the long post, true moms would die for their children, she is a twisted individual.
Hugs to you,
Renee

Thank you for posting this Robin. You are so right ... no justice at all. I was in Florida taking care of my father when this horrible murder occurred. It was heartbreaking to watch the news reports & see how this "mother" was acting. As soon as I saw the verdict yesterday my first thought was that they must've used the OJ jury for this case. Others are right when they say that Casey may think she's gotten away with this but there will come a time when she will pay. Renee speaks the truth ... Caylee is in a far better place now. She is with her heavenly Father & the angels & saints who are giving her all the love she was denied on earth. Blessings, Shirlee

It really is a SHAME! Just in the OJ Simpson case, the jury DID NOT SEE ALL THE EVIDENCE!! She got away with murder in this life, but she will not get away with it in the next. I just don't understand HOW they could have come back with a NOT GUILTY verdict!! Where is the justice for that little girl...??? Some people don't deserve children!!

I agree with you all! If only there were finger prints on that duct tape, she wouldn't have gotten away with it!

What I don't understand is this... the defense basically said she knew she was dead, so this is where I don't get it... how does a mother know her child was discarded into the woods for aminals to feed on, whether she did the discarding or not, how do you stand by and let that happen? I can understand if the jury didn't have enought to convict of first degree murder but how can they say there wasn't enought evidence to convince of manslaughter. how is that not child neglect???? I just don't get it... she is an evil woman and I hope that she does not have an easy life... they say she stands to make millions off book deals and such, that is just sick....The whole case makes me ill...
Lets hope the judge at least makes her serve the last year in prison instead of letting her out tomorrow

Robin, I watched this case from the start and Casey in my heart got away with the murder.
I also feel Caylee got lost in this court.
There will be justice for little Caylee when Casey has to face her maker. I don't have alot of faith in our justice system AT ALL!

Caylee you sweet little girl and you are now everyone's angel, God Bless!

Hugs, Tricia
