It pains us to say it, but in case you haven't heard, Casey Anthony was found not guilty of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee yesterday. A jury of her peers decided that all the evidence the prosecution presented (and there was A LOT) just wasn't enough to confirm to them that this 25-year-old mother was capable of such a heinous crime.
While most of the world is in outrage, there are two people other than Casey and her lawyer who feel the ruling was "fair" - her parents, George and Cindy. Casey's rents were key elements in her case: her mother came to her defense, taking blame of incriminating Internet searches and providing alibis and her father she threw under the bus, claiming that he sexually abused her as a child. Despite it all, George and Cindy had their lawyer prepare a statement for the press, which has just been released, saying:
"The family may never know what happened to Caylee Marie Anthony. They now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives. Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented, the testimony presented, the scientific information presented, and the rules that they were given by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them."
We couldn't disagree more, especially the part about this bringing closure to anyone's life, especially Casey Anthony's. How can she live with herself knowing that she either got away with murdering that beautiful child-scot free or that she never fought hard enough to find out what really happened that day? She just went out partying and getting tattoos, never looking like it bothered her at all that her precious child was missing.
Shame! She should be rotting in jail right now. Let's hope she gets a taste of it when her sentencing comes down for lying to the cops.
