Finally

I was relieved to see that Casey Anthony was finally arrested and charged with first degree murder in connection to the death of her daughter, 3 year old Caylee.

I've been following Nancy Grace (love ya, friend!) for months now watching this all unfold. At the start, I wanted desperately to believe that Casey did not harm her daughter mostly because the thought of someone (especially a parent) killing a child is unimaginable to me. Listening to her on tape with investigators as she stonewalled the investigation, along with the fact that she never called police when her daughter initially "went missing" sealed the deal for me. I could not go on living a normal life if any of my children were missing, so watching Casey shop at Target for lingerie and beer while her daughter was supposedly missing sent chills down my spine. Life would stop for me, and I believe for most parents, but for Casey it was as though life was just getting good now that her daughter wasn't in the picture anymore.

The way she paraded around with big sunglasses on, surrounded by bodyguards after posting bail made me think that Casey actually thought she was some sort of celebrity rather than a suspect in her daughter's disappearance. She always appeared arrogant and defiant as though she was smarter than everyone else, and the lies she told suggested that she held contempt for everyone around her. You do not tell the ridiculous lies she told to people you respect or love.

More than anything, though, I sensed a deadness in the eyes of Casey Anthony whenever she looked at cameras--not in a sad way but in a scary way. She managed to leak out a few tears yesterday as she stood beside her lawyer and the comment was made that at least she was crying and it was good to see some emotion, but what I saw was not crying--it was a faucet drip and I have no doubts about who the tiny stream of tears were for--HERSELF.

There's never any joy in hearing news like this because at the core of the story there is such a devastating loss for so many people. I hope all involved find peace.

I agree with you totally about the "dead" in her eyes, it is an evil dead if anything. I cannot imagine proceding with life the way she did after her daughter "supposedly" went missing. Me personally you would all know because I would be every where and would not stop. My only hope is that this child's body is recovered so she can have a proper burial and that they give the mother the punishment she deserves. The "leakage" from the eyes was definitely for herself, the daughter never entered her mind.

The whole thing was disturbing me and I'm just glad that they have her behind bars. She's a true sociopath.

Brandy said...

Yes she is. The worst part is the delusion that she thinks she can still pull out of this and the fact that she impedes the recovery of that poor baby. I cannot decide, which I want the most, her rotting in jail or death.

I definately agree with you. I do not have children but I can only the imagine the horrible loss and tragedy a normal parent would feel if something happened to their own child. I sure hope she gets what she deserves, and I believe that the only reason she was crying is because she got caught...That poor little girl :(

I actually think that Casey sitting in jail for the rest of her life would be more painful for Casey and so I'm hoping for that.

I'm so glad they finally arrested her too.

I obviously have lots to catch up with on here but only have a minute and wanted to give my two cents worth on this chick.

Like you, I am thankful she is behind bars. That's exactly where she belongs for a long, long time. You gotta love Nancy Grace! I try and catch her show if not at 8, then at 10. From personal experience (as I told you both way back when it all started) we saw those bar pics even before the media got hold of them and a relative even saw her whooping it up in Buffalo Wild Wings two days before she was arrested. Crazy ass sick chick. If either of our children went missing, you can best believe I'd be on the t.v. begging or pleading with whomever to please return my child. I'd also be totally hysterical. She never shed a tear, nor did she ever plead anything to the public. All lies. Sicko deserves to be where she is and gets no sympathy from me.

Yes I remember that you knew of these things this past summer before the media and that absolutely sickened me. I'm with you if something happened to one of mine all you would see would be my face begging, crying, screaming, etc.
