    Seriously though, I hope things do wind down. I see the protesters as causing the family to circle their wagons tighter. But someone pointed out to me in another thread, they are already circled tight!
    I was thinking of George today and wondered if he could leave would he? We all know the marriage has had it's share of problems and L. Padilla said tonight he made a wide circle around Casey in the house. He had the gun in the car and got into it with a few protesters. I wonder if he thinks the judge may say for Casey to stay out on bond George would have to leave since he's causing problems. That would be an easy way for him to leave and not take any heat for it.

    I saw let George, Cindy, Lee, and Casey live in H#LL, they are doing nothing to try and find their daughter. They are eventually going to crack and do something stupid. I see why people are so ticked off. Then again what do i know?

    People who have no consideration for the rest of the neighborhood are just plain rude and obnoxious. No one looks intelligent when waving a half-smoked ciggerette in someone's face and having a conniption fit.

    Quite frankly, the Anthonys have shown much better restraint than I would if someone were loitering on my street, acting like fools. Maybe the neighbors should all tune their stereos to the local Christian or classical station and turn up the volume. That would get rid of those street-trollers pretty quick.

    The Anthonys are wrong for allowing Casey to enjoy the comforts of home while not cooperating with police. If she were my daughter, she would not be allowed home until she told all she knows. The protesters are doing nothing but creating a public disturbance, and that's wrong too!

    I dunno... I think it is helpful because it keeps the focus on the story, and hopefully as long as protesters and media keep congregating there the story will not fade away...

    It sickens me how the story of Taylor and Skyla is just fading out of the media when we KNOW they were murdered and are dead and we KNOW there are a couple of scumbag child killers on the loose. These are TWO little girls brutally killed in cold blood and the story is no longer under the national radar. SOMEBODY knows something. If there were legions of protesters marching up and down the road where they were killed maybe their murder would still be in the news.

    While nobody is sure what happened to Caylee (except maybe her mother) I personally don't think the Anthony's would talk if the protesters were to disappear. There is something deeply secretive and outright spurious about this family and I don't think what the protesters do makes a darn bit of difference except keeping the media interested.

    Yay, http://www.local6.com/news/17426607/detail.html

    The sheriff's office said they reviewed video of the incident and they said that the woman and other people were not on Anthony's property during the time of the incident and he is subject to possible criminal charges.

Were it not for the daily confrontation of protesters and media coverage, I have no doubt they would very easily slide back into their pattern of silence towards anything uncomfortable. They have ignored unpleasantness their entire lives, (else they would have dealt with KC's issues before now), it would be so simple for them to isolate and ignore again. I am appreciative that they have continual reminders of Caylee and the truth (IMO).
    The protestors are the "Greek chorus" in this drama (like Kimberly Gilfoyle said).

    I do not know what the protestors think they are going to get out of doing this. The Anthony's aren't going to say...oh since you have all gathered here and spewing all types of insults to my family, well, we are going to tell you what happened. It is a waste of time and energy and I wish the protestors would stop. I think it is riduculous. I think everyone of them is making of fool of themselves. Get some dignity! For crying out loud.

    Protestors DO have a purpose....

    I have to take the unpopular stance and agree with a few other posters that the protesters DO have a right to be there and DO serve a purpose. I agree that it helps keep the A's aware that we are angry at their apparent apathy about Caylee. Another poster wrote that without the protesters being in the A's faces, it would be easy for them to slip back into their usual silience, "sweept it under the rug," and forget it.

    As for the protestors getting vocal, I can understand that, too. I know how angry I get each time I hear venom spewing from CA or see KCs swaying hips or smirk! I think, even if I went for a silent protest, I, too, might get caught up in the moment and say a few things, especially if any of the As came out to confront.

    And, lastly, I have to take issue with something one poster said about the protestors doing nothing. Some of them go to protest AFTER searching during the day for Caylee; so please don't assume that showing up with signs is the only thing they all do.

    I just about wet my pants when I saw the video of George coming out of the garage with his chest puffed out shouting, "You want a piece of me? you want a piece of me? Come on!" to which a protestor shouted back, "You ain't so bad!"

    Seriously, I thought I was watching a really bad imitation of a Rocky movie.

    I don't think the A's besides Casey know anything. I think the protesters give the A's a reason to rally for their daughter/sister. I don't get why there are protesters. People didn't stand outside OJ's house prior to or even after the trial. I just don't get why these people don't put their energy to something better... like looking or praying.

    I've been thinking about this a lot since Casey was arrested last and I"ve come to a conclusion (for myself).

    I honestly think the protesters being there is a good thing for a few reasons.

    1. They keep the family on egg shells, keeping the tension high in the house.

    2. They can't sweep this under the rug (as another poster said) because it is constantly in their face.

    3. I don't think Casey has it so great at home, even if she likes the attention. All of things she likes are gone from her. No drinking, no drugs (IMO), no pool camera's would catch all of that.

    Basically she has the computer, with NO friends to chat with because none of them seem to believe her. She has her trips to see JB, that's about it. Other than that, not having GA and CA working she is stuck in her own kind of he!!. I can't imagine things are all sunny and fine in that house, no matter what the gp's portray to the media. You have to agree the tension has to be at an all time high.

    I think GA and CA will crack really soon.

    Protesters may organize a protest as a way of publicly and forcefully making their opinions heard in an attempt to influence public opinion or government policy, or may undertake direct action to attempt to directly enact desired changes themselves. (Definition) So, with the above said, I do not see where this really helps. Sure, I want to see this case in the media but there is another way to do this. Go the LE. This type of action is spurring the Anthonys to have a confrontation with them. I understand after searching all day emotion are rare but there is a better way to release these emotion than parking in front of the Anthony's house and causing a public disturbance. Casey's ego is feeding off of this - she is lapping it up like a dog. She has already said "I guess I'm a celebrity." If you want to be heard, go somewhere where you will really be heard - like the LE or FBI office.

    Protestors are standing up for her???? I know I wouldnt feel a ton of "support" if everytime I looked out my window I saw a sign that said "Baby Killer" "Murderer" or "Send her back to Jail"
    A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.

    I'm torn. I've seen similar dynamics in my own family - if everyone "plays nice" and is polite, and it looks all right, then it IS all right. Keeping things stirred up does prevent them from establishing their previous norms - i.e. shutting out everything but their own version of reality. They're getting a daily reminder that other's don't see things the way they do.

    On the other hand, George lets off some steam every time he confronts the protesters. By making themselves an easy target for his frustration, it may delay him confronting Casey.

    Did I straddle that fence squarely or what <g>.
    We will never forget the missing.

    Do you remember the Seinfeld episode when George's father asked Elaine the same thing? lol

    I believe that the protesting itself will not make anyone in this family break. They do serve a purpose though and that is that noone in the family (including Casey) can go anywhere without being seen. Even with the monitor on, it would take a little while for le to try to chase her down if she disconnects it and she could go anywhere by then.
