Parents to Daughter as Casey Anthony is Released: Don’t Come Home
(FoxNews.com) — The parents of Casey Anthony will not let her return home after she was freed from a Florida jail early Sunday, 12 days after she was acquitted of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Casey’s relationship with her parents, George and Cindy, has been strained since defense attorneys accused George Anthony of molesting Casey when she was young. They also said George Anthony made Caylee’s death look like a homicide after the girl accidentally drowned in the family pool. It is not known where she will go.
Anthony, wearing a pink T-shirt with blue jeans, left the jail at 12:14 a.m. with her attorney, Jose Baez, as protesters outside the jail yelled: “Killer! Killer!” She was given $537.68 in cash from her jail account and escorted outside by two sheriff’s deputies armed with semi-automatic rifles. Neither Anthony nor Baez said anything to reporters and others gathered outside.
“This release had an unusual amount of security so, therefore, in that sense, it would not be a normal release,” said Orange County Jail spokesman Allen Moore. “We have made every effort to not provide any special treatment for her. She’s been treated like every other inmate.
Moore said there were no known threats received at the jail. Officials had a number of contingency plans in place, including plans in case shots were fired as she was released.
Anthony, 25, had been finishing her four-year sentence for telling investigators several lies, including that Caylee was kidnapped by a nonexistent nanny. With credit for the nearly three years she’s spent in jail since August 2008 and good behavior, she had only days remaining when she was sentenced July 7.
The case drew national attention ever since Caylee was reported missing. Cable network HLN aired the entire trial, with pundit Nancy Grace dissecting the case nightly. Vitriol poured into social networking sites when Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder, with observers posting angry messages on Twitter and Facebook’s “I Hate Casey Anthony” page.
Outraged lawmakers responded by proposing so-called Caylee’s laws that would allow authorities to prosecute parents who don’t quickly report missing children. And many still speculate about what really happened to Caylee: Was she suffocated with duct tape by her mother, as prosecutors argued? Or did she drown in an accident that snowballed out of control, as defense attorneys contended?
Caylee’s remains were found in December 2008 in woods near the home Casey Anthony shared with her parents. George Anthony has denied covering up her death and denied molesting Casey Anthony when she was a child. Baez had argued during trial that the alleged abuse resulted in psychological issues that caused her to lie and act without apparent remorse after Caylee’s death.
Prosecutors alleged that Anthony suffocated her daughter with duct tape because motherhood interfered with her lust for a carefree life of partying with friends and spending time with her boyfriend. However, some jurors have told various media outlets that the state didn’t prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt as required for a conviction — although most have added that they don’t think Casey Anthony is innocent.
Defense attorneys and sheriff’s officials have not said where Anthony is heading.
“She is safer in jail than she is out here,” said Mike Quiroz, who drove from Miami to spend his 22nd birthday outside the jail. “She better watch her butt. She is known all over the world.”
Lamar Jordan said he felt a pit in his stomach when he saw Anthony walking out of jail.
“The fact that she is being let out, the fact that it is her child and she didn’t say what happened, made me sick,” Jordan said.
What Anthony will do to make a living also remains unknown. Anthony, a high school dropout, hasn’t had a job since 2006, when she was a vendor at Universal Studios theme park.
A large segment of the public has seethed since Anthony’s acquittal, believing she had something to do with her daughter’s death. Her attorneys have said she has received numerous threats, including an email with a manipulated photo showing their client with a bullet hole in her forehead.

Mistaken Identity of the Day: Another day, another person mistaken for the Casey Anthony gets threatened with death.

26-year-old Sammay Blackwell told News On 6 a “crazed woman” in a van deliberately crashed into her truck after allegedly mistaking the lookalike for the real deal. “She hit me again, causing my vehicle to flip two and a half times, landing on the driver’s side, and I just laid there playing dead,” Blackwell said.

Shireen Nalley was arrested following a police chase and charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon. According to police, Nalley — who appeared “severely impaired on an unknown drug” — said she was “trying to save the children.”

liquidfunk:

The shelf life of a hot topic last for what - two days? Casey Anthony’s trial is so old news. I never kept up with her case but from what I read and heard she was on extremely shaky ground, but hey - her defense attorney did his job to prove her innocent and the prosecutors well there ain’t gonna be a next time and they just didn’t do their job to convince the jury she’s guilty. I certainly didn’t get angry when I saw the verdict - just amazed that’s all.
