Why Casey Anthony is Important

Thursday, June 9, 2011 in My Opinions and Rantings (Views: 1666)
For most people, this is stupidity, and at first, I would have agreed. I don't know much about the case other than the basics. I'm not following the day to day developments like some. However, this case is important.

One scene I can't get out of my mind is the amount of people, overwhelmingly women who rushed, literally ran to the court to get a seat inside. I thought to myself, that seems awfully strange (this reaction).

A woman is accused of murdering her infant child, or having her father do it and cover it up for her. Since I don't know the case that well, innocent until proven guilty. Sure, what it appears on what I've seen and read that she's probably responsible, and new evidence keeps coming up to support it.

Why is this case so important? This seems to be the equivalent of legalized murder of an infant out of the womb. I can imagine that if she's found innocent with a mountain of evidence against her, this will set a precident that having an unwanted child can be murdered in such a way that the mother can't be prosecuted.

I am hoping that justice comes out of this. I know that the court of public opinion can be brutal, but I am hoping with proper evidence that she doesn't get off on a technicality. I suppose we'll see what happens.
