Nope. Anybody who makes money off that case is dealing in blood money, including Lifetime.

There is nothing particularly fascinating about Casey anyway. She's just a classic sociopath. We have lots of them. Let's hope she doesn't have any more children, since she's still pretty young.

Not interested. We all know the pitiful story already of how she got away with murder.

Absolutely I am. The only reason I would turn it off, is if it is horribly inaccurate. Hopefully, I and others will glean meaningful insight into exactly what went wrong. Without knowing ALL the facts, its very difficult to make a good, rational decision.

Sometimes people commit crimes and get away with it. This case and OJ Simpson are major examples of this. However, you learn by your mistakes, so as not to make the same mistakes again. Not stick your head in the sand and be disgusted with it all.

Taking your emotions out of it, look at it from an outside point of view. What went wrong and what can be done, IF anything to prevent something like this from happening again.

Phil.....its not sticking your head in the sand, I can only speak for myself...

I watched the crisis unfold from beginning to end... leading up to the trial everyday along with the re-caps for the day. Listened to lengthy audio tapes of depositions, questioning. The where is Waldo games and watched the family as they proudly anounced Caylees Fund in memory of their grandchild, the Dr Phil 3 part appearence when a large donation was made to the Fund. The family bank rolled (that includes Casey) 3/4 of a mill. Caylee Fund disolved in less tha a years time with the parents going MIA.

In spite of public opinion shes free, a sociopath drugged and trash bagged her child and life went on.
I already have a clear picture of what took place. How Casey Anthony or any other players are depicted and accuracy of the movie version are unimportant.

Fair enough, however, you have a "clear picture of what took place." What is that? She killed her child? WHAT do you base that on? What FACTS? Not your personal opinion and/or how you "feel." However, FACTS. What medical doctor walked into the court room and said her daughter died because of, "X, Y, and Z." NO ONE did and COULD NOT.

That is my point. Like it or not, YOU and people like you, have perverted our criminal justice system into something it is not. Our criminal justice system was made to stop such things. To COMBAT YOU and your feelings, thoughts. Hundreds of years ago, men and women were thrown into jail, because someone felt they were a "witch." Based upon faulty evidence, thoughts, innuendo, et al.

Our constitution, our entire way of life was changed. Now, you have to have PROOF of how someone was killed. Not your thoughts, not anyone thoughts. BUT PROOF. Like it or not, in this case, there is NO PROOF, how her child died. NONE. ZERO. ZIP. ZILCH. Therefore, you CANNOT prove murder.

Going on emotions and how one "feels" about a crime, is the reason, today, people are being released by the dozens and getting large multi-million dollar settlements. Remember, all these men being set free for murder, rapes, etc. The jury KNEW they were guilty too. You and everyone else who know Casey Anthony are guilty, are no better then the juries who put innocent people on death row, etc. You are REFUSING to accept the facts and the evidence and using your own personal thoughts/opinions to convict her.

And, by the way, this is coming from a man who is pro death penalty and, morever, has put TWO persons on death row in California. You have no clue the amount of soul searching, time, effort, etc I have invested into the death penalty cases I've been a part of. I'm the man who says certain people shouldn't be breathing oxygen, yet in this case, the evidence and facts are just not there; only emotions. Which does NOTHING but cause problems.
