Today while I was at work I watched the verdict in the Casey Anthony trial. She was found not guilty on all the serious charges against her.Should she have been guilty on neglect charges? Yes she should have.How does a mother go 31 days not knowing where their child is? In those 31 days she was seen partying and having a good time.She may not be guilty of murder but she is most defiantly guilty of neglecting to find her child.I am not a mother yet but I don't think I could that long not know where my child is.What I am not getting is how does someone lie about her daughter missing and she was later found murdered get off without any punishment? Where is the justice for Caylee? Who is going to be her voice in all this? Who will fight to find out who did this to her? Pictures of attorney's celebrating at a bar after the verdict is disgusting to watch.What do you have to celebrate?A little girl lost her life and no no one knows what happen to her.That is not justice for Caylee.After the verdict was read a lot of people took to their Twitter and Facebook accounts to say how they felt. Some of the things that people said was just ignorance. One of the things that stuck out to me the most was people using the race card. I don't see this as a black or white thing.I see this as a abuse thing. Abuse is not just for one race.I have to say this and some people may not agree with me but I do not care.I need my black people to stop pulling the race card as their defense for everything.This was not the OJ Simpson case.If you want to play the race card did these claiming race was the issue stand up for Shaniya Davis.Where were they during the trial for Nixzmary Brown? Oh I am sorry they don't know who these children are.Shaniya Davis was sold by her mother to cover a drug debt.Days later her body was found on the side of the road.She had been beaten and raped.Shaniya was five years old.Nixzmary Brown was beaten to death by her mother and her boyfriend.She was eight years old.Maybe it is just me but I don't see race in any of these cases.I see three little girls that lost their life at the hands of people that were suppose to love them.The parent may not have done the murder but they know something about what happened to them. Three different cases but they all have the same outcome.Three little girls lost their life way too early.
People are missing the real point.Children are being abused and murdered.For people to say that I shouldn't care because I am black is ignorant. I have a heart. A child should never die a horrible death at the hands of a parent.People need to stop saying it is not my problem.How would you feel if it was your child? We all have a responsibility. Not many people believe this but it takes a village to raise a child. We sit around and watch children be mistreated.Not right.They don't ask to be here.The adults makes the decision to bring them into this world.Three little girls aged 3,5 and 8 years old lost their life at the hands of people that were suppose to love them.Who fights for them? Think about that for minute.
