WENDY J. MURPHY: Casey Anthony trial an exercise in absurdity
By Wendy J. Murphy GateHouse News Service
Jun 27, 2011

Recently dubbed the “Trial of the Century”, the prosecution of Florida mom Casey Anthony for the murder of her toddler daughter, Caylee, could more aptly be called the Trial of the Absurd.  The prosecution seems desperate to prove Anthony’s innocence while the defense can’t manage a single reference to the evidence that actually proves Casey did not kill her child.

Casey knows more than she’s saying about who and why Caylee is dead, which is why she was offered immunity early on. The prosecution squeezed her very hard – even putting the death penalty on the table – but Casey resisted and the prosecution all but conceded defeat last week when they rested their case after presenting a woefully small pile of evidence.

….The prosecution’s case raised more questions than it answered, and it failed address the following important issues:

….3. In May and June of 08, when Caylee was sleeping with Casey at a friend’s apartment, Casey got a phone call in the middle of the night, in response to which, she roused Caylee from sleep and delivered her to some unknown location. Then she returned to her friend’s apartment and went to sleep.  Casey also delivered Caylee to unknown locations on other occasions when she claimed to be bringing Caylee to a “nanny.”  Where did she bring her? Why?

4. Why is the docket sheet in the case under seal?  It would show what motions were filed to “seal” certain evidence.  It would also show that the case has been designated a sex crime prosecution – which is important given that a sex crimes detective was involved in the early stages of the investigation.  Why?

5. Casey searched the internet to learn how to make chloroform; a substance commonly used to sedate children in the making of child porn. The public thinks Casey used chloroform to kill her child, but the drug is popular among parents who pimp their kids because it’s cheap and it causes amnesia so that victims can’t remember being abused.

Pimping kids is dangerous business and Casey apparently made someone very angry. Maybe she cut out an earlier “business” partner or ripped someone off.  A “Zenaida Gonzales” reported her laptop stolen in early June.

The distortion of truth in this strange case will lead to Casey’s acquittal, which begs the real question:  will the prosecution then have the guts, and the political will, to file new charges against Casey for what she REALLY did to that poor little girl.

WENDY MURPHY: Why Casey Anthony will be acquitted
GateHouse News Service
Jun 09, 2011

There has never been a more reviled criminal defendant than Casey Anthony, the Florida mom on trial for murdering her nearly 3-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2008. Casey behaved like a raving psychopath after her child went missing. She went out partying, didn’t shed a tear, and got a tattoo that read “beautiful life.”

Her lawyer claims she acted weird because she was sexually abused as a child.

Maybe she was, which would help explain evidence uncovered during the murder investigation that showed Casey may have been working as a prostitute at the time Caylee was killed. Studies show that well over 90 percent of prostituted women were sexually abused as children.

National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Facts (NCADV)

One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.

….An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by
an intimate partner each year.

The majority (73%) of family violence victims are female. Females
were 84% of spousal abuse victims and 86% of abuse victims at
the hands of a boyfriend.

The cost of intimate partner violence exceeds $5.8 billion each
year, $4.1 billion of which is for direct medical and mental health
services.

Boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse
their own partners and children when they become adults.

….children who are exposed to domestic violence are more
likely to exhibit behavioral and physical health problems including depression, anxiety, and violence towards peers. They are also more likely to attempt suicide, abuse drugs and alcohol, run away from home, engage in teenage prostitution, and commit sexual assault crimes.

Breaking Their Will: Shedding Light on Religious Child Maltreatment by Janet Heimlich

High-profile cases such as the child sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church and “faith healing” deaths in certain fundamentalist Christian congregations have made the public aware that religion can sometimes mask deviant and harmful behavior. But the extent of the problem is far greater than most people realize. In this revealing, disturbing, and thoroughly researched book, award-winning journalist Janet Heimlich exposes a dark side of faith that most Americans do not know exists or have ignored for a long time—religious child maltreatment.

After speaking with dozens of victims, perpetrators, and experts, and reviewing a myriad of court cases and studies, Ms. Heimlich explains how religious child maltreatment happens. She then takes an in-depth look at the many forms of child maltreatment found in religious contexts, including biblically-prescribed corporal punishment and beliefs about the necessity of “breaking the wills” of children; scaring kids into faith and other types of emotional maltreatment such as spurning, isolating, and withholding love; pedophilic abuse by religious authorities and the failure of religious organizations to support the victims and punish the perpetrators; and religiously-motivated medical neglect in cases of serious health problems.

In a concluding chapter, Ms. Heimlich proposes changes in societal attitudes and improved legislation to protect children from harm and pushes for more people to recognize and acknowledge children rights.

Casey Anthony case – Child Abuse Connection? Casey Anthony: Judgment day

July 7, 2011 Comments Off on Casey Anthony case – Child Abuse Connection? Casey Anthony: Judgment day

Casey Anthony: Judgment day
July 5, 2011
(CBS News)  ORLANDO, Fla.

It began three years ago with a mystery that turned into an unthinkable crime. A community outraged, a family torn apart, and a nation’s attention focused on one woman. After 91 witnesses and 30 days of testimony – stunning revelations, a family accused, disturbing evidence and even more disturbing behavior – finally a shocking verdict….

On July 5, 2011, Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder, acquitted of manslaughter and acquitted of child abuse.
She was convicted only of four misdemeanors: All of them about lying to investigators….

In his opening argument, attorney Baez said Casey had a reason to lie about Caylee’s whereabouts. And for the first time in public, he revealed it.

“She never was missing. Caylee Anthony died on June 16, 2008, when she drowned in her family’s swimming pool,” Baez told the court in his opening statements.

That awful event, Baez said, overwhelmed this deeply disturbed young mother – a woman who had learned to keep secrets because she had been sexually abused by her own father from an early age.

“It all began when Casey was 8 years old and her father came into her room and began to touch her inappropriately. And it escalated. And it escalated,” Baez continued….

Baez accused George Anthony of being the real villain in this case – a brutal man who intimidated his daughter for years. Baez told jurors that George found Caylee in the pool that day and then Casey found him holding the body of her lifeless child.

“She immediately grabbed Caylee and began to cry. And cry. And cry,” Baez continued. “And shortly thereafter, George began to yell at her, ‘Look what you’ve done! Your mother will never forgive you and you will go to jail for child neglect for the rest of your frickin life.'”

Baez contended that Caylee’s accidental death became one more ugly family secret… a secret just like George’s alleged sexual abuse.

“Casey was raised to lie. …she could be 13 years old, have her father’s p_n_s in her mouth, and then go to school and play with the other kids as if nothing ever happened,” Baez told the court.

Throughout Baez’ accusations, George Anthony remained stoic. Later, on the witness stand, he would unequivocally deny the allegations against him….

Prosecutor Jeff Ashton : Have you ever sexually molested your daughter Casey Anthony?
George Anthony: No, sir.

“When you heard the accusations against George Anthony, did you think they were credible? Troy Roberts asked Forensic Psychologist Louis Schlesinger.
“Anything is possible. I don’t think it was credible,” he replied….

And he was accused of having an affair with a woman named Krystal Holloway.

Defense attorney Jose Baez: Did you at any time ever tell her not to say anything about your affair with her?
George Anthony Sir, I never had a romantic affair with Krystal Holloway.

And the defense put Holloway on the stand in their only attempt to prove Caylee’s death was not a murder.
Krystal Holloway [River Cruz]: He also said “It was an accident that snowballed out of control.”
Krystal Holloway takes the stand

Defense attorney Jose Baez: You never told her this was an accident that snowballed out of control?
George Anthony: (pauses) Never did.
