Twitter uses and the general public aren't the only ones who are outraged at the outcome of Casey Anthony's murder trial. Some people in the judicial system are just as floored as we are about Casey walking free from all of this and one lawmaker in Oklahoma hopes to ensure it doesn't happen again.
Rep. Paul Wesselhoft announced yesterday that he plans to introduce a law called the "Caylee's law" in his state requiring parents to swiftly report the death or disappearance of a child in Oklahoma's 2012 legislative session. In his statement, he explained that many of his constituents thought Casey "escaped true justice," and he wants to prevent that from ever happening again. He added:
"It is unconscionable for a parent to delay notifying the authorities of the death of their child. Most parents would immediately notify authorities if their child had gone missing. Any delay could endanger the life of the child and, in the case of a child's death, make it that much harder to collect evidence. I think the actions of Caylee's mother were reprehensible … Violation of this law would be a maximum misdemeanor or a felony conviction. Oklahomans do not want to experience a situation such as what occurred in the Caylee Anthony case."
We're behind this 100%! It's lunacy to think that this woman is going to walk away with only 6 day sentence for misinforming the police of her child's whereabouts and taking SO LONG to tell them she was missing in the first place. How could she have gone an hour without calling the police to find her child? How?! HOW?!
