    As previously posted, the, 'strange factor,' is paramount for many drawn to this sad, confusing case.

    Maybe, there is a longing for proof that alien life exists as we might try to imagine, but can't truly fathom in any concrete, recognizable manifestation that resembles humanity on a level that we can comfortably relate to?

    And we have no idea how to effectively communicate with them to promote peace.

    Maybe, it is a deep-seated desire to illicit specific changes and resolutions, through sheer force of combined passionate will; that the Martians would conform to our cultural mores, since they're sharing our planet?

    --------------------------------
    “the foreigners brought the strike on.”
    John Miller - 1919

    (Before anyone jumps on me as posting something insulting, in the above quote in this context, 'the foreigners' = 'the lil' green men' we just can't relate to by mentally jumping the vast chasm between humans and alien, alternate life-forms that may resemble us in physique, but not in conscience.)

    Meeting an alien tomorrow on the street would be no less foreign an experience than encountering some of this case's 'playuhs' face-to-face.

    We speak different languages; we come from different cultural backgrounds; we basically believe in the goodness of spirit that exists in humanity --> and the aliens don't --> and we just don't get it.

    Yuppers ---> the strange/unfamiliar quotient is absolutely a factor in this fascination.

    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.
    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.

    It makes me very angry that Skyla and Taylor aren't getting this kind of frenzied attention. We know for SURE that they were murdered and that there's some sick individuals out there who are getting away with it. They were children too and had their whole lives ahead of them. 178 people in this forum at midnight and 2 in Skyla and Taylors. I don't hear about the case at all in the media. I wish that they would cover it daily, but they just seem to have forgotten. I live in Washington and there were no media updates at all that I'm aware of with the recent progress in the case (Grand Jury witnesses). I check in at both forums here at WS daily.

    TY for reminding us.

    You're right, many new members have been drawn to the WS site recently strictly because they want justice for Caylee. It is a fact.

    But, I also believe that there are some new members here who have experienced their own WS 'AHAH' moment, and will continue to carry forward what they've learned from more experienced WS members.

    They'll volunteer for searches in their area should it ever be required; they'll research and explore options for supporting search teams in formal and informal ways; they'll learn from those that are truly committed to assisting in additional missing/murdered person cases.

    That is just the type of steady, clear, subliminal message that WS promotes consistently - if users are listening.

    I really respect that you're standing up and drawing attention to other cases. You're part of the long-term solution that WS gently promotes so well.

    ETA: here is a link to the original Skyla & Taylor thread: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ighlight=skyla

    (And pls. don't Mod spank me for posting O/T - this is a good one to keep???? When you just can't take anymore 'strangeness" in this area of the forum, there are other cases to learn about. TYIA for not beating me with a LART.)

    I wish there wasnt so much interest in this case. So many kids are missing, with parents who wouldnt dream of acting like the A family does. Those families would give everything they have for the exposure this case has gotten. How hurt and frustrated those parents must feel that their child isnt as important as this one. I cant and wont imagine. I understand why the interest, no one can imagine what the A's are thinking on almost every level. Remember Susan Smith? No one imagined any mother could do that and believed her tears and pleas.

    This case will be shadowed by another media event and will quietly go away. (they all do). Im a little suprised the end of the world event (big bang experiment) didnt draw more media. But I guess the end of the world isnt all that important in comparision. Thankfully experiment done, world didnt end. We are also getting pretty tired of the election news coverage, IMO, so this case is a good filler.

    If it all went away, and concentrated on another child, the A's would get exactly what they deserve, NOTHING!!

    For me personally? It would be because I am a mom of 4. I just can't fathom anything that do/don't come out of KC's mouth as a MOTHER. I would kill to protect my kids. I was also a young single mom, but not of a healthy child. It is very hard, but never would I of every hurt her. ever. No matter what.

    I also am a "newbie" and am slowly venturing outside this particular board and checking out other cases. Especially child involved ones. We live in the same area Jacob Wetterling was abducted from and I will forever think about him and we would be the same age. It's scary.

    it originally caught my attention because the Anthony's only live about ten minutes down the street from me. After that, all the craziness of it sucked me in and at the heart of it all, a little girl captured my heart. What can I say...now I'm emotionally tied to it.

    I agree with you on these statements, as I have little compassion for the A's. However, the really scary thing to me was that a little girl COULD be "gone" from her family for as long as Caylee was before Cindy pushed the issue. It's new territory for me to fathom, and I immediately was concerned that this idea would give others the same notion. I think in that way alone, it's good that this has such the media hype, so that this idea (lying to everyone in your life to cover the fact that you [most likely] killed your daughter) is top of mind for people.

    My explanation of this is very dear to my heart..
    I am a mother of 4 boys, the oldest being 15. Growing up myself, I was the good child, never snuck out, never did drugs, I drank twice and found out at 16 that alcohol did nothing for me but make me giggle for 2 minutes and then knock me out quicker than any pain pill on the market..lol, because of that I hung out with a crowd who was not into partying, not into anything illegal, and I believe that I have been blinded my entire life about what really goes on out there..
    Well, until, my 17 almost 18 year old neice started telling me things that were going on in high school....OMG, I thought I would never get over those things..
    Cases like this keep me aware of what I could be faced with my own children. Especially what goes on around the party scene..I think the more aware I am of todays teenagers and youth, the better of a parent I can try to be. Not only that but my children have friends, and their parents may be just a clueless as I , and I feel that knowledge could also help someone else.


    I am drawn to Casey as well, I don't understand what could have happened to cause whatever went wrong. I did see love in her for Caylee, and just can't figure out what happened..I understand she had problems with her mother, yet can't bring to my heart to believe that her relationship with her mother caused the harm to Caylee. As a mother myself, I would have severed the ties with my mother and don't understand why Casey would have been calling her or anything else. I would love to know how she is composing herself right now..I don't understand it, but because I have children who I am sure will have kids one day, Casey could teach me alot of warning signs that I think could be imperative to raising my children..

    You can say that I am using this as a learning experience to a degree with my own children, not that I think anything would ever happen like this, but who is to know? I do know that parents can do their very best, yet still things go wrong..what if that happens and those parents never knew the warning signs?

    Caylee has now become a part of my every day life. I can't work, I can't sleep, and I cannot concentrate much..I watch and read all the time. As bad as I want to see those murder charges on Casey, I know right now the only thing that will ease my mind and allow me to take my own life back is this child being found and laid to rest..
    Justice For Caylee Marie

    It seems like the cases that get the most attention (Natalee Holloway, Laci Peterson, JonBenet Ramsey, Stacy Peterson, Nancy Cooper, and Michelle Young, for example) have one thing in common: A suspect who blatantly and publicly lies about the circumstances surrounding the crime to such an extent that people are completely flabbergasted by the audacity of it and how long it goes on.
    Plus, there is that one exchange that I think has drawn so many people to this case:
    "If anything happened to Caylee, I'll die -- you understand, I'll die."
    "Oh my God," Casey Anthony said. "Calling you guys -- a waste -- a huge waste."

    I have been drawn to this case because I live in Orlando, it's right in my backyard to speak and it is all over our news. I was also drawn to the Trenton Duckett case but not as much as Caylee's. I think I may have become to involved with this case because it has consumed my life and probably will now until there are some answers (a body) or a conviction.

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

    31 Days. That is what captured my attention and has held it since. It tells me most of what I need to know except where Caylee is now and so bringing her home becomes a mission.

    The rest of it is just a sad reality of a family gone so very wrong living in their own world and are of no use in finding her. Caylee is totally dependent on the rest of us to insure she can come back again to get justice and a proper burial.
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    This is true...even Patsy Ramsey could barely speak when she first appeared on TV. She appeared devastated.

    KC never cries. The only time was her first hearing and I think thats because she had been thrown in jail. She is sick. Oh and the first phone call, she wa mad at them trying to get info about Caylee, she just wanted boyfriends number!!!!

    I think what draws me to the case is Casey's lack of emotion. It is hard to believe that a mother could be that unfeeling about her missing child, but then children get harmed by their parents every day in this world. I guess I am waiting for some kind of feeling, some show of emotion from Casey that she really does care about her daughter. I will probably be waiting for a long time.
