Moms Outraged by Casey Anthony Verdict
Filed under: In The News
In the wake of yesterday's verdict in the closely followed Casey Anthony trial, in which the Florida woman was found not guilty of murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of her daughter, Caylee, moms everywhere are letting their opinions of the ruling known.
"Today" reports many mothers are frustrated by the verdict, while others are downright outraged.
Melissa Garcia, who has a 4-year-old son, was standing outside the courtroom as the verdict came down. She tells the news show the case captured her heart.
"I couldn't imagine as a mother allowing this to happen and not searching for the truth," she tells "Today." "I think that we all wanted the truth, and I think at the end we still don't have that."
Lisa Belkin, who writes the Motherlode blog for The New York Times, tells "Today" many mothers just can't believe a mother would behave in the manner Anthony acted.
"On the one hand, you have fierce love for children and women who cannot possibly understand how a mother acts like that," she tells the show. "On the other hand, you have the moments of rage in your own life, or the moments when you really wish maybe you hadn't gotten into this," she tells the show.
