Casey Anthony Doesn’t Deserve a Dime

Casey Anthony Doesn’t Deserve a Dime
By: Penny Nance - 7/7/2011

Editor’s Note: A version of the following article was published by Fox News. Click here to read it.

I’ve tried to bury my head in the sand for the past few weeks as the Casey Anthony trial took center stage on news programs, websites and blogs. For my own sanity, I couldn’t immerse myself in reading about a mother who possibly murdered her own baby.

When my own son was five years old, he wandered over to the neighbor’s house without asking, and I had 911 on the line within minutes. I still get weak knees thinking about it. Any mother who has lost a child — even for a minute — knows what terror feels like, and Casey Anthony did the exact opposite of what most other mothers would have done.

But as the verdict was handed down, I was glued to the television as much as the next person, and was shocked to hear the jury’s decision. From what I knew about the case, it seemed justice would be done, and Casey Anthony would be convicted. Instead, she was convicted on lesser charges of lying to the authorities. And so the mother who loved to party could be freed as early as today.

It also looks like she will have quite the bank account to cover those drinks and buy skimpy outfits for more “hot body” contests. Many news reports indicate that Casey Anthony is possibly set to make millions of dollars. From who? Hollywood media and news programs of course.

Casey Anthony should never be given a microphone or a book or movie deal. She is either completely insane or a murderer — or both.

The woman is a criminal, and it is sickening to even think of her and her family, or her agents, wading through offer after offer of paid interviews, books deals, or which Hollywood starlet would play the party girl in a movie.

Shame on any news outlet, corporation, gossip website, or Hollywood movie producer who gives this woman a dime. By paying Casey Anthony for her sordid story, they are profiting from a child’s death. I can’t think of many things more despicable than seeing the photo of little Caylee Anthony spread all over the world and knowing that her mother is reaping the benefits. How sick.
