Caylee's Law

I have 4th of July pictures and lots to tell you about my fun and happy long holiday weekend.  The weekend was filled with loving family and friends and much laughing.  More on this later.

But today I have to comment on the sad sad life that the Anthony family is living right now.
Being the grandmother of a 1 year old granddaughter and a 2 year old granddaughter, I just can't even imagine what Cindy Anthony may be going through!  Then to also be the mother of the person that is probably responsible for the death of this precious little girl!?  How do you deal with that?
I'm not happy about the jury's decision on this.  I feel there was sufficient evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to find her guilty of at least manslaughter.  I also feel sure that Casey will still live a life of hell, whether it be behind bars or not and her judgment day will come in another form.
Something good must come of this and I feel that passing Caylee's Law would be one good thing.  This would make it a crime for a parent or guardian not notifying law enforcement of a missing child in a timely manner:

Caylee's Law, contact your Senator and Representative: there should be a new federal law created called Caylee's Law that will make it a federal offense for a parent or guardian to not notify law enforcement of a child going missing in a timely manner.
Let's keep another case like Caylee Anthony out of the courts.

If you agree, please sign the petition I have posted at the top of my sidebar.  Keep Caylee's voice alive!

I didn't follow this trial. So I don't know as much about it, as others. But I have seen a lot of Net chatter about the verdict.

This post of yours, is the first I've seen, which points to some tangible good, which can come from the death of this child.

Thank you...

Isn't there such a law or something like it, now?

Terribly disappointed in the outcome of this farce, what is this world coming too?

I am disappointed in the outcome too! I hope that Casey doesn't live happily ever after AT ALL!

Big hugs to you dear Nina!

I think it's already a crime to not report a missing child.
I know you can't smack a mouthy teenager without getting in trouble.

Praying for Caylee.

Honestly, I think there is SO MUCH the rest of us aren't aware of that went on in that home. Just because they look normal, doesn't mean that they are.

Still, the bottom line is this: Who will stand up for Caylee? The prosecution failed to make their case while attempting to bump up the charges, which is always a fatal mistake. I think we all learned that during the OJ Simpson trial, right?

This entire situation makes me want to puke. Parents today need to grow a spine and be the dang parent, as they are supposed to be.

This country is in bigger trouble than anyone ever suspected, as is our judicial system.

Great post!

I have seen a lot of tweets concerning the trial but I don't really know what it was all about. I don't think I want to either. Do I take it that the trial was televised?

The really sad part is that Casey will probably become a rich woman. I can't stand the thought! Thanks for the idea of something good to come from this.
