I have worked with lots of people who were not normal. But Casey Anthony's "abnormal" behavior is not explained by PTSD, it is more easily explained as a bi-polar hypermanic episode, brought on by stress.

Stress...caused by maybe...throwing a kid in a trash bag?

I believe bi-polar was the defense's argument as well.

Yes, too bad the jury was not educated in "typical" bi-polar behavior. Nothing scarier to a little kid than a bi-polar Mother, completely unpredicable, and impulsive. Many of the women I worked with in prison were diagnosed "bi-polar", and were actually scared of being released from prison, because in prison they get medication, when they leave prison, they get a 30 day supply of psycho-tropic medication, and with out health insurance, there is no way they could get medication.

One told me that she could not control any impulse she had while in a bi-polar manic episode. She was in prison for stealing a car, writing bad checks, and when she was pulled over by the police for speeding, she started a high speed chase. Interesting information.

One of the shows interviewed one of the psychiatrists that spent 20 hours with Casey and he said that she wasn't mentally ill and basically, there was nothing wrong with her. Maybe the psychiatrist needs some help! Nothing wrong with her? Just the fact that her child died and she reacted the way in which she did tells me something IS wrong with her. Just the fact that she ALLOWED her child to be thrown into a swamp tells me something IS very wrong with her! I bury my pets better than that.

There is a difference between being mentally ill and having a pscychiatic episode. Also, Casy may have been very careful during her evaluations, not wanting to reveal her true self, easy to do, after all psychologists only know what you tell them, and the MMPI is easy to fake if you read about it.

Criminal thinking is very interesting, they manipulate extremely intelligent people, because most people don't think in terms of deception and using others as easily as putting on shoes for a "normal" person. Even the most experienced forensic psychologists have been "played" by criminals. But their professional hubris won't let them admit it.

Believe me, there is no shame in admitting to being manipulated by a criminal. I have been manipulated. That is why, if any of you ever work in the criminal field, follow all the rules, those rules protect you. Document everything, down to the exact time you met with so and so...

It's been reported that the private jet Casey Anthony was [supposedly] on flew to Columbus, Ohio. It has also been reported that she has family members in Columbus, which is where one or both of her parents are originally from. Also, a Columbus police spokesperson has acknowledged that they could provide someone like Casey additional protection 'for a price'.

Sooner or later Casey Anthony will have to leave her new residence for some reason; e.g. buy food, make a [money-producing] media interview from a local station, fly to NYC for a [money-producing] talk show, appear at a hearing in an Orlando court, look for work, etc. My guess is that we will learn exactly where she's hiding-out within a week.
