I have to admit, I have listened to some of this case, it's hard not to, but I can't bring myself to sit down and listen to the details. We were in Florida when Caylee was reported missing and I still remember seeing it on the local news channel there. A lot of kids go missing everyday. Not all cases end up like this, though.
I can't bring myself to sit and listen to the details because it just completely disturbs me. I just don't understand how somebody can do what it is believed Casey did. I know I am only hearing the case by bits and pieces and through discussions on news shows, but it seems like it is almost moving in slow motion. Little by little, each incredible, unbelievable piece of information is being put under a microscope.
The trial coverage was on a channel I had on my bedroom tv yesterday. I would hear a little, walk out, and walk back through and hear a little more. I heard enough to know the significance of the pool, the ladder propped up, and the chloroform computer search.
Casey's parents are troubling too. I can't figure out what they do actually know and what they just believe, and then what they won't tell. What I mean is, I think they know a lot more than they are saying, but I think the discoveries they made on their own (like the smell in the trunk of the car) have been somewhat suprising to them too.
Then, you have to wonder what they are thinking. Me and Sydney were talking about it last night and about the parents and I said to her that I don't know how I would feel. It would be so hard to know my child was that cold, but then, I would probably do everything I could to protect her too. If I was in that situation, Sydney would still be my child and I can't imagine not doing everything possible to keep her from the death penalty.
It is a horrible situation and I can't imagine what it would be like to be actively involved in it. It just makes my skin crawl when I see anything about it. Every part of it is just unnatural. What do you think? I haven't completely kept up with every detail so I may be missing something. How do you feel about the whole case?
