Social media, the trend that never ends!
Now we are looking at a rage online that it growing larger by the click.
With almost 45,000 LIKEs on “I Hate Casey Anthony Page” nearly 75,000 LIKEs on “Casey Anthony is Guilty” and over 750,000 LIKEs on “F*** Casey Anthony” (page was disabled by Facebook) this anger is not subsiding soon.
The trial, which is being called the trial of the decade, is over, the outcome has brought more hate in our country. Is it justifiable hate and outrage? Many say – “YES.”
Casey Anthony is now a free woman. Although she was found “not guilty” does that mean she is innocence? Does that mean we have a baby killer that will be set free? Does that mean Florida condones child abuse and neglect? When was the last time you lost your child and didn’t report it for over a month?
The jurors in this case are being vilified by many, including people that work in the legal system. With only two jurors speaking so far (and many hope not to hear from anymore), it is clear they didn’t have a full understanding that circumstantial evidence is evidence, it is clearer that they didn’t understand the jury instructions. As one juror stated, they didn’t see motive (which the state did provide and legally didn’t have to – if they read the instructions, they would have known this) and another juror stated there wasn’t a cause of death. Again, frustration grows among the public since the state wasn’t required to give a cause of death, yet did.
As some media tells the public they need to accept this verdict and move on, it is true, but it doesn’t mean we have to respect it. It is blatant the jurors didn’t respect the law, (jury instructions), so it is hard for many to respect the verdict. Actually many call it an insult to their intelligence. A recent Psychology Today article, by a former FBI agent, hits the nail on the head when it comes to these jurors – and their questionable verdict.
Now we are proposing Caylee’s Law, which will be beneficial to some, but is too late for Caylee Marie Anthony.
Social media is now the wave that is launching new ways to vent your anger. What pages have you joined?
Feel free to vent your anger, your opinions, and your pages to share with others in comments below.
Aris Fernandez, a Green Cove resident and father, created Boycott Casey Anthony Page shortly after the verdict was read. His page started with a few members, and is now well over 17,000. There are many other boycott pages and more growing daily.
Yes, we have to accept this verdict, but we don’t have to respect it. Hate is not healthy, but when a death of a child is involved, it is very hard to accept.
Let’s end on a positive note, listen to Rascal Flatts song, “She’s Going Places,” in dedication to and a tribute to Caylee Marie Anthony.

Although we never meet her, we all fell in love with her.
