The news rocked the world following the “not guilty” ruling of Casey Anthony today in a Florida courtroom.
The mother of slain 2 year old Caylee, who went missing in 2008, will walk away from the death penalty and the first degree murder charge. The media and trial followers have been riveted by the proceedings. Alleging everything from accidental drowning to accusations of molestation; the trial leaves many unanswered questions.
Escaping the sweeping arm of justice, Casey beamed at the final outcome. Guilty only of the lesser charges of misleading and giving misinformation to the investigating officers; it certainly does appear as though she has gotten away with murder.
In the public eye, however the mother who, while her daughter was missing but not reported as missing, went out on the town, socialized and went so far as to get a tattoo of the Italian words meaning “beautiful life”, is guilty. Overwhelmingly guilty in the “people’s” court.
May she have to shoulder the burden of walking around as a murderer for the remainder of her life.
