    Why This case Is So Popular ??

    Why is the case so popular? What draws us to certain cases over another? There are lots of missing children in this world. There are children who die by the hands of their own parents and yet this case seems to stir up our emotions. Why? Why this one and not another? I look and see that Caylee has sooooo many supporters and prayers going out for her and yet there are others who are missing that don't have the support she is getting. Why is that?

    Funny you started this thread PD - I was just thinking the exact same thing a few minutes ago. Oh, and BTW, I have no idea.

    I hope this thread doesn't offend anyone for that is not my intent. I'm just curious as to why some things get soooooo much attention when others don't. I'm not taking anything away from Caylee what so ever for she deserves our prayers and support, too..

    What drew my attention to this case was the way Casey Anthony spoke.
    I watch HLN, CNBC, MSNBC etc. quite a bit so obviously I came upon this case.

    In watching the released phone conversations and tapes, I really found the way Casey Anthony spoke intriguing. Her tone reeks of this really interesting confidence. Her words always sound so deliberate. And some things she would say or explanations she gave made no sense to the conversation she was having. As we have all heard it seems like she was speaking in code. I remember thinking to myself "why isn't anyone bringing up the fact that she is speaking in code!?!?!" LOL.

    Her words, her tone, her thought process all seem so familiar to me..

    I don't mean to say I am habitual liar (lie)...(jk)..(lie)...(jk)...or a sociopath lol.. I just thought there was just something really interesting about this girl.

    I have often wondered the same thing. My opinion is that we need to ask the media to take away 30 minutes per day, per presidential candidate and focus that time on missing children. After all, who cares how many homes John McCain owns?

    Well, I think this case is getting so much attention because we don't understand how a "mother" could NOT report her child missing and NOT even tell her family for 31 days. Then add in all the lies Casey has told. We want to know WHY?!

    ANd...we just want peace and justice for this little girl.

    I think my main draw to this case is the way Casey is being strung up when there is so little to go on that points in her direction.
    Seriously, so she steals...anyone checking these forums from work PC's when they are supposed to be doing what they get paid for is "stealing" in a sense. So, that doesn't make her guilty of murder in my book, at least not without incriminating a whole bunch of forum readers/posters as well.
    She lies...who doesn't? Maybe tiny lies, maybe big lies, we all do it. I lied this morning when I told my friend I had to get off the phone so I could go out and get my mail. I really just wanted off the phone...period.
    To watch this young woman being raked over the coals without sufficient cause is making me feel a great deal of sympathy towards her. And honestly, I am so thankful that there are people like Jose Baez, Leonard and Tony Padilla and all the others that are willing to help Casey.
    We don't know why she has kept her silence. Plain and simple. I prefer to give her the benefit of the doubt until I see reason not to.

    I have underlined and numbered the points in your post that I would like to respond to.
    1.) There is a MOUNTAIN pointing to her.
    2.) To equate sneaking a look at a forum while at work and lying to the police about your missing daughter is like saying that a man who murders another man is the same as someone who swats a fly. They HARDLY compare. It is apples to peanut butter and it does not compute REALISTICLY...
    3.) But we do not all LIE to the police when the ISSUE is our missing CHILD. We do not lead the police on a wild goose chase that in no way helps them locate our child and only wastes their time...This, again, does not compute in REALITY. Yes, everyone may lie to get off the phone, that is SIMPLISTIC-but everyone does NOT lie to the POLICE when their child's life hangs in the balance...
    4.) Spend some time and read the 471 page document dump with all the statements and the REALITY may just set in you too...

    What about her not reporting the child missing? Or partying while she was supposedly looking for her? Her total and complete lack of concern over the wellbeing of her child? I can't believe that there are people who can still give her the benefit of doubt when the only thing she was concerned about when she was first put in jail was getting her boyfriend's phone number. "All they care about is Caylee." You want me to give THAT the benefit of doubt?

    Okay, it's understandable that you want to give her the "benefit of the doubt" - she is, after all, innocent until proven guilty. However, I've never stolen my best friend's checks and went on a shopping spree with them at Target. I've never used the routing number on my grandmother's checks or stolen money from her assisted living account. And furthermore, sure, we all lie, but I've never made a sport of it. I have a real job, I don't send myself fake emails in case anyone ever questions my employment. I could go on and on. But I will say this. I am with you on her silence. With all of the whoppers coming out of her mouth I think it's best if she keeps it shut, because every time it opens the hole just gets deeper and her credibility plummets further.

    I hope the underlying reason for her lying in regards to her daughter being missing is to protect Caylee and not her own self.

    Maybe that is a message that Caylee wants us to receive-to put more energy and love into situations that desperately need to be healed; especially involving innocent children. Maybe that is why the case has drawn out the way it has, to try to wake people up and make people of FEEL again-

    I have been drawn to this case because as far as I know this is the only case in which a little 2 year old girl has been missing for 30+ days and the mother never reported it. This was the very first thing to intrigue me.

    Actually there was another case not too unlike it just reported today. I wish I could find the article. It was from the US Southwest, and the mother is an American Indian. The child was missing for about a month. The mother finally admitted the child was dead and claimed it was an accidental death. Very shocking. But somehow it never reached the level of this case.

    I suspect in part it is a combination of those pictures of Caylee that just grab you attention, combined with the absolute unconcern of casey. People are watching something completely alien to them. They cannot understand how Casey thinks or is wired. It is rare that we see quite that level of for lack of a better word, cold calculating evil, in a woman. We tend to expect in more in the Jeffrey Dahmer type serial killers.

    I think because it's such a strange case with all the twists it has taken. The family, the lies, everything about it is just plain strange.
