You can bet that Cindy wants love, George wants love and KC wants love. It is so sad to think that the very person who loved them all so easily was "taken out" like she was.
    I was shocked when I visited the CBS news comment page...the vitriol against the Anthonys is too much! Yes, they have handled things poorly...but I do not hate them at all. I feel very sad for everyone.
    Sociopaths don't particularly care to be loved. They don't love, and they don't understand love. They want attention.

    Don't feel sorry for KC. If she got out, down the road she'd likely get preggers, again, and kill another kid. Or, she'd take out a life insurance on a husband, and off him. She's an empty box.

    I wouldn't either. But, then, I would not enable a sociopathic child, to begin with.

    But George and Cindy did wake up one day and decided to lie to protect Casey. Because of that I do not see them as victims. Caylee is the only victim.

    You're not the only one who still feels...I can't even properly describe it...not exactly sympathy or empathy exactly, but a sadness for them...about them.

    G&C have deeply obvious personal and mental issues. The entire household was a hothouse flourishing with dysfunction. Denial seems to have been a powerfully ingrained part of their daily lives for years. IMO, even the most emotionally healthy family would have a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that their daughter not only had her entire life based on lies, but also murdered her own toddler. Even the most rational people would take time (and not just weeks or months, despite the desires of people watching the case from afar) to accept something so horrific. It would take time and fortitude to be able to disengage from their daughter, to admit personally then publicly what she had done and allow the courts to render their judgment. I think, even starting from the best of emotional places, it would be a nightmare that would try the soul beyond comprehension. And I'd never trade places with them either.

    The interview on the CBS morning show seemed to me like G&C are retreating even more into how they *wish* Casey was, how they *wish* life before could have been, how they *wish* there was some phantom they could blame for Caylee's murder. (And in a way who can blame them for *wishing* it was someone other than their own daughter who killed her own daughter?) BUT that is what fueled so much of this in the first place, that poison trifecta of denial, fantasy land living, and magical based thinking.

    I don't think they knew from the beginning how to behave emotionally and not speak to the media. I don't think they know how to live any differently. I don't think their behavior is going to change (or endear anyone) anytime soon. And like I said above, it just makes me...sad.

    There is no one in the world more important to me than my son. I would easily die for him. When he was born, I knew I was given the most precious gift any human being can be blessed with and my husband and I did our best to instill the right values, ethics and morals in him. During his teen years he gave us the usual fits teenagers give their parents but I'm proud to say he is now a fine young man that I'm proud of for all the right reasons. He doesn't lie, he doesn't steal and he is a man of impeccable integrity.

    Having said that, because of the value system we have brought him up with, when he has erred, he has owned up to his mistakes and lived with any consequences. If my son was arrested for murder (heaven forbid!) and the evidence was overwhelmingly against him the last thing I would be doing would be lying for him. I would say publicly that my son is entitled to a fair trial. Period. Then I would go crawl back under my rock and wait until the trial and hope and pray that the evidence is wrong.

    The A's had a huge memorial for Caylee, which was really more about them, IMO, and that was the extent of their support for her. Over and done with! Now they're on a mission to lie to the public with apparent impunity (though hopefully they will pay for that) about "how proud " they are of their daughter and "what a wonderful mother she is" and "no red flags" and on and on, ad nauseum. Second verse, same as the first. Though there have been times that I have felt genuine compassion for them, they make it awfully hard to keep it up. They just don't get the negative impact they have on the public. When all is said and done, somebody needs to tell them that every time they open their mouths, KC takes one step closer to the chair.

    I'm curious, what would you do with a sociopathic child? Unless you have personally dealt with a sociopath in your life it is really hard to understand how difficult it can be.

    When she was small she threw fits. I walked away. She learned right off the bat that she wasn't going to shove me in a corner. It continued on and off like this until she left home at 16 and I went and found her and drug her azz back home. When she was 18yo she was allowed to move on lil piggy (I lucked out because there was no 2 yo child to worry about).

    I'm not saying I'm perfect-----H3ll no----far from it. I worried about her---didn't know where she was nor what she was doing. She came back home a year later. She told me a few thangs that happened to her. I read way more into want she said. I took it that she had a very hard time of it. She married---3 kids and thangs seemed ok for a long time.

    She was taught right from wrong, she was loved but she learned that she has a "space" in this world and I have a "space" in this world. All this was way before we had Head Drs n such so I had to do it on my own. It was my responsibility. I was taught not to---lie--hate and all the normal stuff we have to learn to live with the other peeps in this world and my kids learned the same from me. There are just thangs we have to do to make it in this world. You and I have a "space" in this world and we better dam well take care of it.

    When her kids started moving out she sent the last one to live with his dad. In the meantime I was raisin 2 other grandkids. My husband died and I bought a house for all of us to live in. Since I figured I wasn't goin to live long, I would put the house in her name.

    Dumb azz huh! We always learn til the day we die. All I wanted to do was make sure they all had a home. Nice house----lots a money---insurance. I'll save you the gory details of that mess. Within 6 mo of buying the house she tried to have us evicted. I feared for the lives of the 2 I was raisin and myself. My son came and moved us here.

    No worries and I can have peace before I die and my babies are taken care of. Not with money---but they are full of love and many--many GOOD memories. Spit that evil girl I gave birth to. You see---she is not my daughter---she is however my bio-daughter.

    I choose to stand up for Caylee, as she is the one who we need to defend -- along with all missing children. I'd like to say I don't care what G & C have to say, but it's all rather quite interesting. They're 2 grown adults who should be able to take care of themselves and make the right decisions == even if they choose to support KC.

    It would be much easier to defend them as grieving grandparents if they just stopped doing what their doing.

    For the real victim - Caylee Marie Anthony!

    She can't hurt us. She probably will live the rest of her life "using" the peeps who come into her life. So, yes--------sorry to say I do know. I do know. I will die happy and she can do what ever she does-----------but I don't have to lay eyes on her again and that is where the Peace comes in. I can go to bed at night and know that I won't wake up with her standing there. I am free.

    If my bio-daughter had killed one of her babies-----> she would have first had to deal with me before I called the cops. I was never afraid of her and I really think the A's might be. They need to pull their britches up and just move on.
