I've somehow gotten wrapped up in the Casey Anthony trial. It's been interesting viewing as it goes along, but yesterday got downright controversial.
Apparently Casey Anthony's mom, Cindy, is covering up for her daughter who is accused of murdering her own 2 year old child. Found on the computer in the Anthony home were searches for chloroform and how to make it. Cindy claims she attempted to do a search on the computer for chlorophyll, mistakenly spelling it chloroform, because her dogs may have eaten bamboo in the yard. Never mind Cindy was working on the day and time of the search, and no one really believes she misspelled the word, the point is she's trying to cover for her daughter.
I've always said from the beginning of this trial that the people I feel most sorry for are Casey Anthony's parents. They must be scratching their heads trying to figure out where they went wrong in raising their daughter that she would go so far as to kill her own child. As a mother myself, I can only imagine the pain. Add on top of that the realization that if your daughter did, in fact, commit this hideous crime against an innocent child, she could be put to death. What do you do?
I can understand wanting to protect your child at all costs. I can understand taking the bullet to save your child. I can understand pointing the finger at yourself saying you did it, not your child. But what about that little girl? Shouldn't there be justice served for taking away her life? Wouldn't that be the right lesson? No more lies. No more cover-ups. Let the truth be spoken and the punishment fit the crime.
I would hate to be in Cindy Anthony's shoes and pray to God that I never am. I'll say it again - I feel for the parents of Casey Anthony. They are truly living a nightmare.
