this one's off the cuff
won't burden you with the details but i rec'd a tweet or two from a self proclaimed "mad person" on twitter to the tune of "f...... you sam you should die" ....
my offense? i thought casey anthony was innocent. you see, i don't believe what i see or hear in the press. is this wrong? that i don't follow the herd on these matters? i don't think so. but then again, my uncle freddie has always said: '
"sammy don't follow the herd, you'll always be sniffing up somebody else's butt"
but i think there is a larger lesson here. i think what happened in this case is pretty simple:
three years ago when the story broke, it became a media firestorm, and i think the Prosecutor's office pursued this case out of media pressure ....
i instinctively saw and understood this. i thought to myself, "what if she didn't do it? what other explanations could have come into play here?" i had to mask myself from what i saw and heard, and ask myself plainly. "what if it was a situation where her family is dysfunctional, and she really didn't do it, would the State of Florida still indict this person?" and they did.
and the State of Florida got what it got.
the press is not going to delve into this subject matter very deeply because all of the journalists employed in this case WERE WRONG!! they have to eat crow, and admit they had Ms. Anthony pegged as guilty and they were wrong.
so you can hope i die, hope i rot, and curse me out. but it was the media that didn't deliver the verdict you hoped for. shoot them, they were the one's who promised you a guilty verdict. not lil ol me.
