We are still trying very hard to ignore this Casey Anthony thing, but it is difficult to do this when it continues to inspire the minds of Americans with abortion jokes and dumb talking points. Oh, in case you managed to escape this horror, Casey Anthony is a lady from Florida who probably murdered her toddler (according to expert Americans across the country) but managed to get off the hook, because there just wasn’t quite enough evidence, and there’s this thing in our legal system where you’re not supposed to just give people the chair unless you’re absolutely sure they committed a crime. And this is just the sort of dangerous legal loophole that is going to let the terrorists win. Of course.
Grumpy old turtle human Mitch McConnell is very concerned about the Casey Anthony trial, because if the jurors are going to let some mentally unstable young mother from Orlando maybe murder her child and then go back to happily wrangling gators, or whatever it is they do there in between Disney parades, then what is to stop a jury from letting a terrorist do 9/11 all over the place, forever?
The Casey Anthony acquittal shows why U.S. civilian courts should not be trusted to handle terror-suspect cases, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said.
“We just found with the Caylee Anthony case how difficult is to get a conviction in a U.S. court,” McConnell, R-Ky., told “Fox News Sunday.”
Yes, this Anthony case has demonstrated just how “difficult” it is to give the death penalty to whoever we want. So really, Nancy Grace should just set up shop at Gitmo, since that is the best place for both terrorists and sleazy child abduction/murder suspects, because of Justice. [UPI]
