Suggestions for Casey Anthony’s Future

Just Trying to Help

So, the “tot mom,” as the nasty Nancy Grace calls her, was released from prison. It is about time! They should have never held the poor creature for so long, especially since she was innocent, and all. Now, more than ever, she needs our help.

Just because the media portrayed her as a cold-blooded, self-centered, party-loving child murderer, that does not mean that we should be prejudiced against her. I mean, duh! She was found innocent of all charges, you know, except for those four, iddy-biddy counts of lying.

Honestly, which one of us has never lied to a police officer? I mean, thousands of people lose their kids everyday. And who hasn’t used that “babysitter-on-vacation-in-the-hospital-out-of-town” line? Funny how the police fall for it every time, you know?  Crazy funny. I’m laughing even now – HA!

So, since it is only fair that every one have the chance to start over, especially when she’s innocent, Casey could use some help getting back on her feet. She needs a place to live, and a job. She needs to make some money to help pay for unfair legal expenses. And who knows, she may want to adopt. That would be so great, because she did, unfortunately, lose her daughter to an unfortunate accident of some unfortunate kind, unfortunately.

Living Suggestions

I think the best place for Casey Anthony to re-locate would be in Death Valley, California. Away from the eyes of a judgmental public and an unforgiving media, she could enjoy the remote sands while working on her tan. Reputed to be the one of the hottest and driest places on earth, not to mention way below sea level, she would feel right at home.

If that didn’t work, or if she felt she was just a little too close to California with all its tempting party spots, there’s always the hot springs at Yellowstone National Park. Smithsonian.com even did a story about this place, making special mention of it’s beautiful colors. Oh, don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself…

…you couldn’t do much better than the conditions in Yellowstone’s hot springs. The springs are near the boiling point of water and acidic enough to dissolve nails. But some microbes thrive there, and the pigments they produce give the springs vivid, otherworldly colors. (click HERE for article)

Job Suggestions

Since Casey Anthony will probably have a hard time finding gainful employment (thanks to those mean old journalists), I have a few suggestions. Surely there is someone out there who cares enough for Casey to offer her a position.

  1. High-Speed Railroad Rail Polisher – A high-tech job like this could help her self-esteem.
  2. Food Taster / Cup Bearer for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  – Just think of the honor! She could be like Nehemiah!
  3. Humanitarian Land Mine Remover (HLMR) – Nobody would bother her while she was at work. Fantastic!
  4. Shark Repellent Tester (SRT) – I have heard this pays a lot of money to the right individual.
  5. Knife Throwers Assistant – Not a lot of benefits, but she would get to travel and live in vintage circus tents.

Encouraging Words

Everybody needs an encouraging word, now and then. The Bible is full of them. And since the promises of God are there to bring comfort to the weak and weary, the hurting and broken of heart, let me leave one of them with you…

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. – 2 Peter 3:9

But here’s another one…

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. – Romans 12:19

NOTE:  Before anyone else makes a comment, please remember a few things:  1) I’m not perfect, nor do I claim to be; 2) I do NOT desire to see Casey Anthony burn in hell; and 3) God’s amazing grace and mercy is available to the worst of sinners, meaning not just that Anthony, but this Anthony, too. On the other hand, there is much frustration over the fact that this well-publicized case was about a murdered little girl. As of yet, the crime is still unsolved. Caylee’s cry for justice is what fuels the frustration.

ALSO:  The final verse should be a warning to all who truly wish Casey Anthony harm. But at the same time it should also be a reminder that even though God is merciful and gracious, it was Jesus who said, “And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” – Matthew 18:5-6 KJV

God is merciful, but He evidently does not take harming innocent children lightly. If Casey Anthony did murder little Caylee, then I pray she makes haste to accept the sacrifice for her sin on Calvary; otherwise, if not on this earth, one day she will answer to Whom vengeance does belong. The same is true for all of us.

  1. AHAHA! This made me laugh… I’m sure you we’re being completely sarcastic all the way through it. :]

    “And who knows, she may want to adopt.” <– hurt my stitches I laughed so hard.

    So eloquently put. You said everything I was feeling but in such a fun way that I laughed and had a hard time reading it to the hubby so he could understand the laughter.

    I have to say that I’m one of those few who didn’t really follow this case even though it was plastered all over the airwaves and Internet.

    I’m not sure how to take your comments about this. I don’t have a side to stand on with this topic, but I see that most of what I’ve read and seen now shows that most of the country is in favor of lynching this girl.

    I agree with one of your statements above where you say that ‘now, more than ever, she needs our help’. I’m pretty sure you’re being sarcastic but still not really sure on this.

    All I really know for sure is that God loves her as much as He does you and I and will show her the same mercy and grace He does to us. I sincerely hope that Casey has somehow learned something from all of this that would cause her to accept His salvation if she hasn’t already and that she would cling to Him… it seems that’s all she’s got now.

    • Oh, it was definitely meant to be both sarcastic and humorous in a dark, cathartic kind of way.

      I followed this only as much as I had to (my wife wouldn’t change the channel). My conclusion is that she is guilty, but of what I’m not certain. A little girl is dead, and a killer (or negligent relative) is on the loose. Regardless of whether or not the prosecution proved it beyond a reasonable doubt, Casey Anthony had something to do with the crime, if only to cover it up. But even if she killed her daughter, Christ died for the ungodly.

      I wrote this piece out of a desire to release pent up frustration. In all honesty, I would love to see her repent of her sin and make Jesus Lord of her life. She deserves no less grace and mercy than this sinner. On the other hand, the blood of the innocent cries out for justice, and that has yet to be served.

      Thanks for your honest comment.

        I spent many years growing up in a legalistic church society, from a young boy to a mature (maybe immature) 40 year old. I can almost hear the folks in my old church saying what a terrible person Casey is and that she will pay for her sins.

        Two years ago the light bulb finally went on in my head and I finally began to understand God’s grace. Now at 42, I feel refreshed and brand new after a life long journey down a self deprecating path where I could do no good and God was my task master and judge rather than my Savior and loving Father.

        The reason I say all that is because I can identify with your reasons to write this blog and so far it’s been a great read. I appreciate your willingness to put your neck on the line regarding legalism and obviously some frustrations. If I thought the folks at the old church would listen, i would tell them that Casey is no better or worse than any of us and that she doesn’t have to pay for her sins, He already did.

        Thank YOU for being honest and may God be blessed through you.

  4. I think you should take a look at yourself Anthony.JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED.
    NO SIN IS WORST THAN THE NEXT. LET THE FIRST THAT HASNT SIN TOSS THE FIRST STONE..

    • Love you, Richard! But please don’t miss the point. Read my recent responses.

      And when it comes to the “judge not lest ye be judged” reference, be careful how you use that. So many use that verse out of context. Jesus never said one couldn’t judge, only that if they do they should be willing to be subject to the same.

      I knew that when I wrote this there would be people who would accuse me of being mean and judgmental. I knew that some wouldn’t understand. But if you would notice, one of the verses at the end do state that if she would repent, God would forgive her. And that goes for all of us.

      On the other hand, there is a part of every believer, no matter how much grace has been shown, that I believe wants to see the victim receive justice. Even the tax collector whom Jesus saved said, “if I have wronged anyone, I will repay four times the amount.” How can you repay the life of a 2 year old?

      If my little girl died in an accidental drowning, I’d be the first to take the stand and yell at the top of my lungs “I DID NOT KILL MY BABY!” If I did kill my little girl in cold blood (even accidentally), all because I wanted my freedom to party, even if God’s mercy forgave me, my little girl would deserve more than me making a million dollars off her death. That’s a crime in itself. Go ahead…judge me. I’d deserve it.

  5. What if she didnt do it?

    • Well, maybe she didn’t. I don’t think the evidence made public makes a good case for that, though. At the very least she was complicit in Caylee’s death, or she had very little concern. Just a few weeks ago our Haley was missing, along with another little girl her age. Within the span of 10 minutes I went from calm and collected to terrified and enraged. My wife called 911 and had neighbors try to block the roads going out of the neighborhood. It didn’t take weeks for us to get concerned or tell anybody…and we sure didn’t go party while she was missing. But hey, that was me.

      And if she is innocent, then what? But actually, to be specific, the court found her “not guilty.” I would have a hard time letting her babysit my 2 year old. She has a big job of ahead of her. Regardless of what the verdict was, her reputation is one of a mother that lied about working, lied about where she was, lied about who had her child, and partied while her child was missing. To be thought of as a member of society worthy of our respect and trust is going to take a lot of work on her part.

      But again, if she poured her heart out to God, gave her life to Him, that’s in His hands. That would make her my sister.

  6. We also have to consider her past, and the hell she endered at her brother and fathers hand . So then would you have handled the stress of lossing a child

    • You may have a point with regards to the abuse. If she was abused then that would affect the way she dealt with things, of course. But still, 30+ days of keeping her own daughter’s disappearance a secret? Even from the police? Even making up stories about where she was? That’s hard to understand. My wife was abused, but she was quick to call 911 at the first hint of losing her daughter.

      In addition, it could even be argued that Casey Anthony’s father was involved in the death. Some jurors, according to an interview with juror #11, thought there might be a possibility that he was involved, based on his demeanor. If that is the case, then I sure hope someone does an investigation of him. If Casey Anthony really did have nothing to do with her daughter’s death, after all he’s put his daughter through, well, then he should be strung up. And I do mean that literally, as in executed by hanging. Of course, that’s for the court to decide, but it’s my opinion.

  7. Loved it. Completely understand the writing of it. It’s a fine line between mercy and justice, and only Jesus walks it with perfection. I think my stance is more of, “I want justice. And then she can get mercy.” But of course, I usually want it the other way around for myself. lol.
    Good post. Again.

    2 wrongs never made a right. We have a justice system in this country that is flawed but fair. I imagine there are a lot of innocent people in prison and even on death row because of circumstansial evidence. Had there been an eye witness or better yet, 3 eyewitnesses,to come forward and say to this jury, I saw her do this, or I saw her do that, which led to the death of that baby..then we wouldn’t be agonizing over the injustice of that baby’s death. And the ‘not guilty’ verdict of her mother. What IS true, is there was a negligent homicide. In other words, this mother was responsible for the care and safety of her child. She was negligent in that, she failed to protect her child. And now that baby is dead because of negligence at the very least. But negligent homicide was not offered up as an option to deliberate over. Only ‘criminal negligent homicide’…criminal implies intent of some sort. Perhaps it was a drowning. Perhaps no one was watching Calee and she drowned in the pool. Perhaps Casey panicked because she Knew she was responsible for taking care of her baby, and she failed. In her mind, like a lot of ‘children’ do, hiding the evidence of her failed responsibility was her way of saying…”If she buries the evidence, no one can say I was responsible…I will just make up a story that someone else was responsible, not me”…the way a child does when they are horsing around in the house and something gets broken as a result of thier bad behaviour. How many times have we tried to cover up a broken nik-nak with super glue? I do not know what actually happened, and I am offering as her lawyers did, an alternate scenario of what the media and a lot of others that condemn both the jury, and the mother, the parents and the brother of Casey because of thier passion for some kind of justice. I watched that girls reactions and cold indifference to what happened to her child when she was being video taped in jail talking to her mother. It just reminded me of a child whose only concern is for thier own backsides when they have done something wrong. Not the fact that they did something wrong, but that they couldn’t get anyone to believe they didn’t do it. As far as punishment goes, I will leave that to God. He knows the truth of what happened to that baby. And what is done in the dark will be made known in the light. Someday. Don’t punish the jurors for having to come to the decison they did because of our legal system. And because of shows like CSI, Bones, NCIS…where evidence can be extracted out of duct tape from a 100 years ago…and DNA can be pulled from a mosquito in a piece of amber ’65 million years ago”…I don’t blame the jurors. As much as I disagree with that verdict, I will give her that presumption of not guilty as charged.
