I didn't follow the Casey Anthony trial closely. I would read an update on Huff or see a clip on the evening news. I have never been one to find the trials of everyday people fascinating or entertaining.
Now comes the endless coverage of the verdict. I find this part even more distasteful and the crowd reactions are outright frightening.
A juror said that the prosecution never offered proof on how the little girl died.
The defense attorney said the jury followed the judge's rules and the Constitution.
It is so very easy to get blood thirsty when a child dies. It is so very easy to blame the mother, especially when she is not deemed a sympathetic character.
Well - truth is never easy.
I don't know what really happened but I do know that thousands of children are starved, beaten, neglected and sometimes killed all over the world; every single day.
Perhaps that is something that should draw crowds ...
Perhaps that is something that should be relentlessly covered on TV ...
