Mental illness is not your fault, you do not deserve it and it is not a flaw in your character- There is hope and I am a wonderful bad example
Merry Christmas to you too
Can someone direct me to a link to the first deposition from GA and CA??? I can't find them anywhere online now.....Just thought it would be interesting to go way back to those first statements they made in a courtroom when everything was still kinda new.....just to remember what all they said back then.....I wasn't sure where to post this question....hope this thread is ok...
Ol' Marcia does seem a tad "off", no doubt. We used to have a poster here on this very thread who I believe was psychotic- I am not saying that in any offensive manner, I am saying it because if people read the posts from this person I think they may see it as well. In this situation when the poster was spoken to when people resonded, it fuled the delusion and future responses would be even more out there. But when ignored he simply moved on.
It was very sad to see how others treated this poster even after pm's sent letting others know that this poster may not be trying to be difficult but may be psychotic and have no control over it.
LOL Listen to me- what am I, Manic?! WTF, Laura! LMAO!
(I re-read what I wrote to you and started laughing out loud (for real) at myself and went to get rid of it rather than posting it but then figured maybe you'd like the laugh as much as I just did!)
Our backgrounds and history and trauma's that we've experienced really shouldn't play a factor in the "Act of Murder/ or Crime"...it can play a factor in how one perceives others, etc. (example: a neglected child may possess feelings of insecurity, depression, withdrawl, etc....and sometimes all of their lives. However, that same child knows right from wrong...so if they murdered another human...how can one blame that on their upbringing?)
There are many folks who suffer tragedies, mental illness, personality disorders, post traumatic stress, hardships and pain....and they do not go on to commit an act of murder....and in a lot of cases...never an act of any crime. Hope this makes sense.
I don't buy the "Temporary insanity" defense either. Point being..if she did have a breakdown and killed Caylee even if by accident in a fit of rage...or an overdose of chloroform. Once the body "comes back down to normal"....it would have been reported. One who had temporary insanity would not have carried on for 31 days of partying, laughing, etc. A good example of temporary insanity is Andrea Yates.
This link, while long, has a all of the documents on the left side in a boxed column:
Hope this helps.
It was at the 'No Clothes Party' on 5/25/08 that she had the 'episode'. AH doesn't say when KC said she actually had the miscarriage. Since she got so upset, I just thought it may have been recent. I think I read other stuff about it elsewhere too. I'll keep looking. She was probably lying through her teeth and faking the episode for attention. <--most likely scenario.
KC found her pot of gold in others pockets.
Interview with Pat Brown, criminal profiler, about Casey's psychopathy right now on Today Show. VERY interesting. People in other time zones should be able to see this in the next hour or so. msnbc.com puts up links to these interviews within an hour or so.
Excellent interview! Interesting insight into Casey's mind.
I'll come back and post the link as soon as it's up, or if somebody else catches the link, please post.
Since this thread is about the family, my gut reaction to Cindy is "that woman is evil."
i think casey grew up in an environment where evil was always around. science says a kind act makes even strangers who merely witness the act feel better; unfortunately, i would guess an act of evil would have the opposite effect.
How or Why is Casey evil? I personally think it can be purely organic, purely environmental or anywhere on the scale between. She will be studied for the next 50 years.
In my personal experience, I have only met one person who was "born" evil. The rest were, in my opinion, "made" evil. I have only met one child that seemed to be "born wrong" and seemed scary evil. I would not have been surprised to learn that child had an organic default in her brain. Her parents were extremely kind and compassionate. I do not get the kind and compassionate vibe from Cindy in the least....
My main point is, casey's # 1 role model / influence would have been dear old mom.
