BBM How could this law punish good and hard-working parents? The only way a parent would receive punishment is if they don't report their child missing or dead...only a bad parent that has something to hide wouldn't report their child missing or dead. Furthermore, this law would help children because it would be a deterrent for parents to prolong reporting an accident, could possibly save a life. While the verdict of this trial could have an impact on parents thinking they can get away with murder, Caylee's law would deter anybody who has watched this trial and thinks they too can get away with what Casey has. Nobody will ever be able to pull a Casey move and party for 31 days while their child is missing and get away with it. Tennessee already has a law in place that parents DO have to report a missing child, but no punishment if a child is not reported. It's not going to take much to make a revision to the standing law and add punishment to it. IMO it's well worth the legislation's time an the taxpayer's money.
