The TV has done spitted me back out...

I got sucked into the Casey Anthony trial. I accept full responsibility for it. And now it is over except for the playback and interviews and going over every detail. I hope the jury, eventually, feels safe enough to give some sort of statement or give an interview. I wonder if we'll ever know what happened? I wonder what will happen to all the people involved? I hope no more tragedy follows in its wake.

I have to admit, I don't get the whole attraction. There are plenty of murder trials going on all of the time, why did this one get so much attention? I never watched a minute of it. When they started talking about it on the News, I turned channels. I clicked on Facebook last night and most of the comments were about the verdict. I turned off the computer and went and watched Pretty Little Liers, instead!lol

seeing her on the clips made me shudder- she reminded me of my real mom in some of her mannerisms. you've got to wonder about who's going to be picking her up from jail since she tried to blame everyone else in her family.......

I love all the people spouting their opinions who got their info from in bits and pieces from the news channels.
Unless you were in the courtroom, or watched every single second on TV, you didn't get the whole story.

My 2 Cents: the prosecutors tried to play too many theories, which looked like they had no theory at all.

My other 2 Cents: How does a woman whose child was missing for a month while she played and partied and got tattooed, be found Not Guilty of Aggravated Child Abuse?

When I went home in June, my father was glued to this stupid trial. I can't explain why.

Bob I'm interested to know what story we didn't get from being in the courtroom. A woman has a daughter,that daughter suddenly disappears. Said woman, instead of going on a frantic search or reporting the missing child to the authorities, parties like it's 1999. Not for a few hours, not for 24 hours, not for a few days but for a MONTH? Once confronted about the absence of her daughter,begins a series of many lies as to the whereabouts of her child. Those are not the actions and behaviors of a caring parent. They are the actions of someone covering up the death of her own child. She just happens to be a present day version of Susan Smith.

I think the stunning lies were part and parcel of why the public was fascinated with this trial. Or, at least, it was for me.

I also have a theory about us humans. It is in our best interest to pay attention to things that impact our survivability. We have a vested interest in studying human behavior, sexual cues, fooooooood. Of course we take it to ridiculous lengths but we have more time than cavemen/women/children did.

If there ever will be interviews, they will be most watched I guessing! And I agree completely with Bob's two cents.

I too stayed glued to satellite radio listening to every word. I can sum this up very easily and I've said this numerous times to Joy. This country is filled with some of the dumbest people imaginable.

When I was on that sequestered jury for that murder trial, we kept being sent out of the room and didn't hear a lot that spectators did. It's a stressful, isolated experience.
