Casey Anthony Death Penalty???
I doubt that many readers of Cedar Posts have an ounce of sympathy for Casey Anthony. But don't you think it's a real stretch to bring a capitol murder charge against the 24 year old mother?
First I don't think Casey Anthony can get a fail trial, and despite the horror of her actions I can't find a case for First Degree Murder. I fail to see anything other than involuntary manslaughter and child neglect. Being a party girl, a bad mother, even a slut in this country is not a capitol offense.
The Florida State attorneys office that originally stated it would not seek the death penalty reversed its earlier decision and that alone is cause for debate.
But the real issue is justice for Caylee, and there is not justice in putting her mother to death. In fact I think if the state of Florida presents a death penalty case against Cayce Anthony it will end in a full acquittal.
