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.
    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"

    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.

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

    Protesting is a wonderful tool! However, the media has blown this protest out of proportion.

    I think that if those protesters really wanted to make an impact, they would be out searching instead of shouting at people who just don't care. In all honesty, the protesters have bothered me from the beginning. Nothing seems to come of it. I think KC actually likes the attention. Watching her yesterday being "protected" as she ventured out made me sick. Why all the special treatment? It only feeds her ego - her self importance. I believe if people would calm down and just ignore her and FOCUS ON CAYLEE - that would get to her more. "All anyone is worried about is Caylee!" Imagine an evening in the house when no one has protesters to talk about. What's left to discuss? Maybe they will finally discuss Caylee. And maybe, just maybe once KC is relaxed she will slip up in some way. Right now she is in defense mode. The media should focus on Caylee only. The search, the timeline, the evidence. No more stalking KC so we can see her run from vehicle to building thinking she is some celebrity. Ugh! We need to see more footage of the search, the evidence, and Caylee.

    I didn't say the protesters were standing up for her...I said her parents/family are standing up for her.

    I second that. Just there presence shows that there are people that care about Caylee. I think protesting is important, and they have a right as long as they keep it under control.

    I do agree that news crews should be following the searchers. This would most likely prompt more people to go out and look. The sooner we find the body, the sooner KC is behind bars.

    No way these protests will have any impact on whether or not Casey tells the truth about Caylee. How would that benefit her? That is the ultimate question in her mind and she will never talk unless it has significant benefit to HER. I'm not sure if she enjoys this attention but I doubt if it bothers her much, if at all. Of course, all the above is MOO.

    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.


    JMHO

    I think the on-going discussion regarding the protestors is getting us no-where. Fact is they are allowed to protest. Fact is the Anthony's cannot do anything about it unless they get out of hand. I personally think GA should be arrested for assult. We are now arguing wether he "pushed" or "shoved" this woman. Doesn't matter he "touched" her in an aggressive way and that is assult. He had NO RIGHT to lay a hand on the woman. PERIOD. Doesn't matter if half of the people here thinks she should be protesting or not. The LAW states she can.

    Nothing is going to make those protestors go away IMO, until they themselves get tired of being there. I do think news crews should focusing more on the search for Caylee then the negativity surrounding the protesting.

The protesting is probably only strengthening the family. If they weren't out there distracting them, the family would probably focus their anger towards CA and she might actually decide to lead them to her daughter!
    I do agree with you that talk around the ole dinner table is that of the protesters outside. Initially, I thought it might grate on their (THE A's) enough that it would make them crack... but seeing how they are already cracked, the protesters are only a distraction for them and now they are huddling around KC all the more. It's sick. JMO The protestors and the media need to leave. The narcissim/ego that resides in KC, CA and GA will get the best of them and that house will implode but that will not happen as long as the A's attention is diverted to the front yard. Can you imagine the A's shock if they opened the garage door one morning and everyone had packed up and left and they were no longer the center of attention. They would freak. Myself I am ready for the freak show to stop. I am ready for some media outlet to make a statement along the lines of ..A We are leaving and will not be back until some real news occurs concerning Caylee Anthony.

    The protesters are a daily reminder of the one thing Casey could never in a million years have anticipated when she made up her twisted stories - intense national scrutiny.

    I wish the protesters were a little more Children of the Corn (unblinking stares) than Invasion of the Bodysnatchers (pointing and screaming), but their very presence has got to be a little unsettling.

    They're a daily reminder that the search for culpability in Caylee's death is just. not. going. away.

    No matter how much Miss Casey enjoys sitting in Baez' office playing on the computer, the watchers are there when she leaves the house, and there when she returns.

    I am not being snarky and would agree with you if KC was a normal person with normal feelings and normal chracteristics but she isn't. Your scenario would probably drive a normal person nuts but KC it is like her verry own cheerleading squad in her fantasy made up world. Bodyguards, photographers, drivers, tv cameras...she feels like a true blue celebrity. That is one reason for KC and LE high five yesterday after getting through the media. The protestors are just feeding this grandiose nuttiness in her head. JMO I just hope they all leave and soon, along with all the media.

    I think if the protestors CARED about Caylee as much as they HATE KC and the rest of the A's they would be out LOOKING for Caylee and not giving the family the attention THEY WANT so badly. THe A's put on a BIG SHOW of how much they want the protestors to leave, but if the protestors leave then they won't look like VICTIMS of the nasty people outside their house. The protesters are really good TOOLS in this, they are creating VICTIMS of the family. People are actually feeling sorry the A's because they have to deal with that all day everyday, and you know what that's what they want. SYMPATHY. DISGUSTING...IMO

    While reading all these posts I thought about this. Now don't chew me up - just think about it. What if the protestors started "bit@hing about the taxpayer money being spent on this case?" It's very true. The economy is tanking all over and this case has to have cost Orange County LOTS AND LOTS of money. Where does that money come from? Taxes. I know people down here in SoFL get all riled up about spending taxpayer money. Maybe if the protest took a different direction - start writing, calling, visiting the elected officials offices - BEGGING, DEMANDING, that something be done to move this case forward because its costing the public way too much to coddle this (pos) POI. I wonder what would happen if the right elected officials were bombarded with complaints about this if it would possibly cause a "turn the corner" in the case. Plus, we haven't heard from any elected officials (other than the Sheriff - who is not up for re-election) about this case. Just my thoughts - just my opinion - please don't throw things at me.

    If I was a protester, I would think twice about showing up.

    "The horn reference was in reference to deputies who have handed out a few $80 tickets to passersby for honking their horns too many times.

    Deputy Spike Hopkins said the tickets were for "inappropriate use of a horn."

    IMO, taxpayers are also the ones who will pay for the frivolous lawsuits that come from the protesters whose intentions are to provoke the As enough that they react (like the pushing incidents). These people are looking for a buck...that's why they go there...that's why they provoke...that's why they are so quick to press charges. Everyone is speculating as to what kind of people the As are...well what kind of people are these protesters!??

    Since the FBI is involved, this isn't just a local tax issue.

    Last I checked, that's a federal agency that all US taxpayers fund.

    What you said goes right along with my thoughts. Start writing, calling, going to the elected officials offices. Start demanding SOMETHING happen. Either get her put back in jail, charge her, send in enough LE to STOP the looy loos (now I know about the right to protest - but when I read the FL laws the other day, protesting did not pertain to private residences - only businesses, soooooooo..... stop them. I had friends harrassed about sidewalks down in SoFL - cops said you have to keep moving - no pulling up a folding chair and chilling on the sidewalk). Either way - I think the way this needs to start turning is to start putting pressure on the elected officials - demand something be done to stop this waste of money (taxpayer money) - or start demanding the A's start paying for security or LE calls (I know you can be charged by LE for so many 911 calls - they have done that before). We all know the A's now have this "windfall of funds". I'm just saying this may be a new avenue to start looking at to help bring Caylee home.

    I agree all this "attenteon" is feeding into Casey. She even said shes a celebrity like she likes it.
    Everyone should drop the attenteon to Casey, (but of course still continue to focus on CAYLEE ONLY).

    It would probably hurt her feelings more if people hollered out "You're ugly!" instead of "Babykiller!".

    This also goes along with my philosophical disagreement with the media becoming overly obsessed with one case, because of the type of players involved.
