Casey Anthony Gone Bad
The story of Caylee Anthony, deceased 3 year old, has been a tragedy all around. The cast of characters and the details of this case could go on forever. Something so totally unnecessary to begin with is resulting in tons of money being spent because of undeserving Casey Anthony while most other crime victims are being passed over almost completely by the news media.
Huge amounts of money have been spent by taxpayers and others because the Anthony family has not been cooperating with law enforcement. Call it pathological lying. Call it an interesting family dynamite. Call it not cooperating with police. Call it impeding a police investigation. Why is this nonsense being allowed to continue, asks John H. Gohde?
A marshaling of the facts shows that the last time that Caylee was seen was on June 15th at an assisted living facility on Father’s Day. Kathi Belich, a reporter for WFTV, reported that “there was some sort of huge argument Father’s Day weekend.” In other words, there was some sort of a big fight in which more than one Anthony family member has failed to come clean on. The fate of Caylee was obviously sealed by that fight. And, the police should have been able to wrap up this case almost immediately had the Anthony family, as in plural, not impeded the crime investigation.
Then came Leonard Padilla, Bounty Hunter, who coughed up some $50,000 of his own money so that Casey Anthony could stay out of jail for not much more than one week. Padilla presumably was interested in the publicity being generated by the Nancy Grace show. And, presumably because of Leonard’s goading of bonding companies during the course of the Nancy Grace CNN Headline News show, two Florida jail bonding companies joined forces in order to come up with a second $50,000 used to bail Casey Anthony out of jail for yet another week. Why is really not very clear, since they clearly have not gotten nearly as much publicity out of the deal as Leonard Padilla has.
John H. Gohde says: Just think about it! Private citizens spent $100,000 of their own money on the undeserving Casey Anthony, without even batting an eye, just to keep her out of jail for two weeks. Just imagine the many different ways somebody could manage to blow $100,000 in a couple of weeks.
Then think of Tim Miller and his Equisearch efforts where thousands of people were looking in all the wrong places for the body of Caylee Anthony in Orlando, Florida. Undoubtedly Equisearch must have spent tens of thousands of dollars on their efforts, if not in the neighborhood of a hundred thousand or more.
Look at all the telephone hotlines, and costs associated with following up on tips when the Anthony family all along knew more than they were telling.
Just look at Nancy Grace, CNN Headline News Anchor of her own show who has been relentlessly pounding on this news story for months and months. Shamelessly claiming breaking news while repeating the same information over and over again. No matter which side that they thought they were on, it was Nancy Grace’s way or the highway for guests of the CNN Headline News Nancy Grace Show. Nancy has been unbelievable rude to just about everybody on her show, at one time or another. Nancy Grace, CNN Headline News Anchor, master of making tons of money for CNN on the tragedies of other people milked the Caylee Anthony tragedy for all it was worth and then some while totally ignoring most other victims of crime during the same time period.
