Neighborhood Watch is...
NOT the Vigilante Police
I am sure there are those, like the people who wrote KC in jail, telling her she should be a star and how beautiful she is might, but, that would be very few. IMHO
I am saddened by reading posts wishing someone would use "vigilante justice" but I can also understand the emotions because it is still fact a little girl's body literally rotted away in a swamp all that time and if that fact doesn't bother you, well, you might want to check your sensitivity levels.
I have to remember that people in this forum have the same rights that protect the jury in giving their verdict as they saw fit. Even though I may not agree in the manner in which they choose to express their opinion, they have a personal right to express their opinions in whatever way they choose.

Maybe it is just me, but that video where than man is singing "You'll be a woman soon" or whatever to Caylee is creepy....who is that man? Caylee seems to be trying to get away from him at one point...
Just my opinion, of course.
A lot of people are very emotional (I was, but am no longer) about this and saying things they don't necessarily mean. While I agree with the mods that the bashing has to stop, I think it's also a good idea to not take anything too personally. Just let it roll over you the way water rolls down a duck's back. Yes, it's understandable to not be over this yet, and to have strong feelings and emotions. I totally get that. But people reacting in anger often do it from a place of pain.
In the martial art style I study, we learn to not push back against our opponent necessarily, but to let their attack go past us, sort of the way wind will bend a reed but not break it. I'm not trying to get all Zen, but having compassion for each other and understanding that all of our emotions are raw and that it's ok and that it's ok for someone with opposite opinions to also have raw emotions is a good thing.
I'd love to hug anyone who is hurting by this. No matter what their feelings are about this case. Even jury members who wish they had more to convict her on but couldn't.
Things will be ok. I promise.

Tonight is the premiere of a silly summer show called "Big Brother". I have watched it for the last 12 years every summer and its pretty consuming. I invite all of you who need a light hearted endeavor to take our minds off of this to join in. It is on CBS 3 nights per week, it is on Showtime every night live from midnight to 3 am and you can purchase a subscription to watch it live online 24 hours a day until it is over. Plus there are websites that recap it and discuss it and it's just a fun thing to do to take your mind off your problems and escape. I hope I see some of you dear people joining in!
I need to take a break from all of this. You guys are all really lovely on here. I have enjoyed all your discussions in this forum over the last 3 years. I will find a new case on here to follow I am sure, there are already several I check up on weekly. I just don't think I can take hearing anymore about this case. It is over and now I need to go wash off the filth and hug my kids and furbaby. Kisses and Hugs everybody!! I wish you all the best. Goodbye for now!!
dear mods, i do so apologize for the OT posting, if you need to remove, feel free, I just thought it might be an idea for those of us that need something to take our minds off of things and relax for awhile. Thank you for all your hard work, i know the last 3 days have been really tough for you guys! and btw, I DO NOT work for CBS, lol!!
Tweets also saying ICA had two visitors at the jail the night the verdict was read. DS and Michelle whatshername.

What's the betting she will slip out of jail today?

Here's what I think is going on. They socked it to her at sentencing today...she is returning to jail until the end of august when they will decide how much time is remaining after all she served and time for good behaviour etc.....here;s the zinger...the judge blew her off purposely in my opinion until the end of august so she will stay there until the other cases pending against her are heard, the prosecution aided in that as well, also, he fined her 4000$ and told her she can appeal his decision. He asked her if she can afford the appeal (knowing she can't) and also if she has the funds to pay the 4 grand. She said no, he said file bankruptcy. Bankruptcy means that you can only make a small income of money during the time you are under bankruptcy and the rest the gov't takes. So basically, whatever money she makes that's left, she will have to pay her other cases. They are basically going to financially drowned her and any future money she makes....the gov't put a lien on her money as well becuase she owes the irs. I think the prosecution and the judge will find a way to make her pay for this in some way

She served her probation time while incarcerated. She received CFTS, plus one year probation. In the above article, she was signed-up while in jail, and probation officer was going to check regularly on her status in jail.
It is not unusual for probation time to be served while the subject is in jail awaiting disposition on other charges. jmo Although I am a retired probation/parole officer.

I KNEW her hair would not be wrapped up in a tight matronly bun today. How can the lawyer DCS sit next to her so sweetly caring like that? It really does make my skin crawl.
