I accompanied my client and friend to the annual Hotel and Restaurant Show in Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. He is planning to open a restaurant, and new ideas, and the expo was a big help.
After the day of workshops and hours on the Expo floor, we are on our way back. We stop at a new restaurant to look at the design, and in the lobby there is an 8 by 11.5 black and white photo of Kailey Anthony.
We have seen this face so many times on TV, and here it was right here on the shelf, and you suddenly understand that this is not the news on TV, this is real, this is right here.
Every time I watch the news, I am fighting the rising anger against her mother Casey. I understand that I am an immigrant, and what was normal there is not normal here, but I still do not understand how someone can manipulate everybody not for a second, not for a minute, not for an hour... but for months.
Law enforcement is searching for the girl, volunteers from all over, even other states, search for the little girl, and the mother WHO KNOWS WHERE THE GIRL IS keeps her mouth shut.
Maybe I sound stupid, but shouldn't the society have the right to act in the interests of the society and get the answer by medically drugging her (and if you feel that the judge should sign on that, so be it) and get the answer. The truth should not be what the procecutors or the attorneys negotiate. O.J. Simpson is not innocent because they failed to prove that he killed. I sometimes feel that we tend to take the jury's decision for the truth, and it often isn't. Just abstract from everything. Casey knows what happens, and for already over 2 months the girls is missing, and we are waiting for everyone out there to solve the case, everyone except for Casey. Does it seem like reasonable behaviour for adults?
I can imagine the uproar form people. I can imagine that people would say that this is freedom and you can't force people talk. They have rights. Whose rights? Kailey's or Casey's?
What do you think?
