On Friday, George and Cindy Anthony stated in an e-mail message of a spokesperson, that the decision to seek the death penalty will not change the support and love that the Anthony’s have for Casey.
Lee Anthony, through his attorney, stated that he did not expect the State’s Attorney’s office to make this move given the evidence that has been made public. The attorney then described his client (Lee) is going through shock and horror that the State is prosecuting this case to that level.
I do not think that any family going through this should not love their family member. I do not think that the way you have looked at your child for all of their lives would change much. But to be the one who is the only suspect in the case of killing her child, and the fact that it looks was done not by accident and most likely premeditated and planned, I personally would feel some anguish. I could not put on blinders and just issue statements or walk out of depositions. I as a parent would so have disdain for that which my child will have done, I think that I would have a bearing of extreme guilt in the matter. A brother, who felt strong bonds to a sister so close in age, should in the very least shutter at the thought of the baby as Casey put her into bags. I think the family should gather together in prayer, I think the family should gather and find forgiveness as they step forward in a long and arduous trial that looms ahead.
I think that the family should close ranks and try to campaign to spare Casey’s life and have answers and redeeming reasons. Every soul can be saved so they say. But the stance of hard-ball denial is not working for the Anthony family and denial is not a healthy thing.
The prosecution and sheriffs department and cooperation from the FBI, the departments have been meticulous in findings and apparently not leaving any unturned stones. Police have been able to track Casey’s sleeping and eating patterns. They are tracking her whereabouts. What was discovered is uncanny! On the average Casey texted some 12 messages per hour! Upon waking every morning she sent approx. 60 text messages! This goes on non-stop throughout the day. Between the dates of June 1 st-July 17th Casey sent over 4,000 text messages!
Wow! Casey has lots to say and said it often! So much so that it has helped in the investigation of exactly when Casey did everything that she did. Casey was up until 2-3 AM and then getting up for the next day at between the hours of 6-7 AM; everyday! A lot of texting and no sleep make for a nasty unproductive person in society. Add in a bit of bi-polar and you have got yourself one heck of a mess!
There is no perfect crime and most real criminals will get caught in the end. In this case, Cindy Casey’s mother is memorizing whole sections of the reports, so that Cindy will be “perfect” on the stand when it is her turn to get up there.
Hopefully, the prosecution will have an easy time, wrapping up a perfect death sentence for a perfect wanna-be, and then this will have been the perfect crime!
Just my thoughts, just my opinions, and always in a conversationalTone.
