As the story progressed, my next thoughts were…Casey would throw her whole family under the bus to save her own skin…

There is not a simple answer…

Cindy has extreme severe issues with denial and of enabling ALL her family members…or she is just as cunning as her daughter is. The sly grin on her face when the Not Guilty verdict was read turned my stomach…

George's suicide note was IMO self serving!!! He totally left a trail of breadcrumbs so someone would find him the day of his "suicide attempt". Daytona Beach is loaded with hotel/motels where one can easily disappear and not be found...he is IMO as good or a better liar than his daughter…

Lee is very strange, but “normal” compared to the rest of the family…

There is so much more to this tragic case than anyone can ever imagine...

Liars typically have grains of truth sprinkled throughout their lies…

We hear horrific child abuse stories everyday and people frequently are shocked because there were not any obvious signs…what about the stories we don’t hear about until maybe when the child becomes an adult, he/she writes about it or reports it or regrettably hurts his/her self or someone else…

One thing is 100% for sure…there is something VERY WRONG with the whole Anthony family…

Something went wrong in that house long before poor Caylee’s tragic end.

Just my opinions...
I agree. People who don't have their own lives together have no business having kids. They just perpetrate the sickness into future generations.

If you are being suspected of a crime for which you didn't commit, you ARE going to be nervous. There is a reason the results of such tests are inadmissible in a court of law.
Yes. If the police interview you they are allowed to lie. I have heard that in some cases police chosen administrators of lie detector tests are not unbiased because they want to keep getting police referrals. If you do want to take a test and you are innocent, get the test arranged through your lawyer and pay for it yourself.

Annie, yes George is sort of a sympathetic character. he seemed to truly love that little girl Caylee. The rest of them used her as an object. A true trait of narcissistic families.
Yes. Even if Caylee had lived she probably would have had serious problems later on in life.

We had our two daughters ... no problems at school ... did their homework ... brought home letters regarding meetings, teacher conferences ... oh the bliss ... then our son arrived ... oh my what a world of difference ... nope I don't have homework ... nope the teacher don't need to see you ... unknown to him I was always ... weekly in touch with his teachers. LOL

When he was five years old we visited a friend ... 35 miles away ... after the visit and we pulled up in our driveway he asked to go to the store .. he didn't have any money!! He pulled our a dollar ... 'where did you get that!!!!!' He found it at our friend's home ... nope that don't get it.

We pulled out of the driveway and drove the 35 miles back to the friends house ... son was crying, tears and snot everywhere ... I had called our friends and told them do not give him the dollar ... do not say it is ok ... which she had already said it was ok on the phone and I said NO. He begged and hated us and screamed don't make me do this.

We stayed in the car and he had to get out of the car ... ring her doorbell and return the dollar and apologize. I did wipe the tears and snot off of him. He is 34 years old and never again in his life has he stolen one thing. As a parent that was a hard thing to do but we felt it was a necessary lesson.
Good for you. I think a lot of parents choose not to invest such time and effort into guiding their child onto the right path as you did. A parent has to make some tough decisions sometimes and never to lose sight of the goal - a healthy and happy adult developing out of your kid.

That doesnt mean caylee deserved to die. This case was a disgusting example of a stupid jury.

regardless of Cindy or george enabling, caylees "mom" is now 24 or so??? she is an adult who should pay the consequences. i wouldnt want my worst enemy to have a psycho daughter like that. I cant even write on this thread anymore since it prolly perpetuates her name. trailer trash child killer.

I agree with those that say that it wasn't likely that George was involved. In some ways, I see him as a bit of a victim himself, although I don't necessarily have much sympathy for him.

I think he was totally ramrodded by his wife and daughter from the day his daughter was born and probably had very little authority in that home. That is why I say I don't have much sympathy for him - as an adult, he should have extricated himself from the situation a long time ago.

But I do think that he was totally violated by his daughter and her legal team; I wouldn't be surprised if mom hadn't been in full support of it, too. Anything to get her darling off, no matter who else was hurt in the process.

Nope, no sympathy for the two Anthony women from me. And I guess I didn't follow the trial close enough to have much of an opinion about Lee, but if he has separated himself from his mother, then good for him.

I think Ashton said it best in closing when he said " to believe the theory of defense, you would have to allow yourself to fall down a rabbit hole where...... so on and so forth, you remember.

I have tried to turn it around ... I don't need much sleep and 4am to 9 or 10 is ok ... even 5am ... my doc thought it was wrong and said I had broken my sleep pattern.

He prescribed Ambien and it put me to sleep ... hard sleep for 3 hours and I woke up with one of the "blow the top of my head off headaches." Tried it again and same thing ... didn't take any more. LOL i just cannot get in bed and turn and toss wide awake, tear up my blanket and sheets and keep looking at the clock. Counting them darn sheep don't help either.
