Facebook, as I write this, is currently a vessel for free floating hostility, as George Carlin might say. I have over 600 friends, many of them who merely friended me on my writing work, and they, combined with my real life friends and co-workers, are unleashing a lava-swell of anger and rage over Casey Anthony being found not guilty of the murder charges.
That she was found guilty of four instances of lying to the police isn’t enough to really assuage their malevolent attitudes, as that won’t be enough to strap Casey to a bed with a needle in her arm.
I don’t like seeing good people upset over injustice, especially when it’s not something that they or I had any control over. So I’m writing this today to provide some kind of comfort to those who feel like justice was not carried out on Tuesday afternoon.
There seems to be this notion that Casey Anthony will simply go home, await the sentencing on the lesser charges, serve that sentence and, in a few years, go on her merry little way to freedom and happiness and success.
