Understandable that these kind of measures are being taken!
We imagine that there are A LOT of pretty angry people out there!
In light of the shocking news that Casey Anthony was found NOT GUILTY of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, yesterday, after an extremely high profile trial, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demmings made a public announcement, pleaing with his community to refrain from acting out in any way in response to the devastating ruling!
He says in a statement:
"As the verdict has been rendered, we ask our community to respect the decision the jury and court have made today. Historically, there have been other high profile trials that have resulted in civil disobedience. Regardless of one's personal beliefs about the innocence or guilt of Casey Marie Anthony, that you maintain your peaceful resolve."
He also discouraged anyone who does not live in Anthony's neighborhood from visiting that area, and also made it clear that the authorities would be patrolling the county "to ensure order and peace are maintained."
We sincerely hope that the public heeds his warning.
There's been enough unnecessary violence and devastation during this whole mess.
