When did she pimp her daughter? and considering toddlers and tiaras what would you consider pimping out your daughter?

:confused:

This was a response to some questions raised by this article (posted originally by icecat):

No. When Lil Kim went to jail, she had to remove her weave/extensions and her acrylic nails. Don't know why I was watching THAT reality show!

I didn't think about that. But, both could be considered weapons or could be used to harm yourself. Even if Casey is to narcisistic to consider that as an option.

And she should be happy to stay in jail. At least there she's got protection. It's the safest place for her right now. That mob outside the courthouse looks ready to lynch her. When she is released, she might not even make the car ride to wherever the hell she's going.

but she has to get a job. Who is going to hire her? Maybe a fast food place who would perhaps see a spike in business? I have a feeling tho that whatever job she takes will not last long - I don't think she has the fortitude to work consistently or at a performance level that would be acceptable.

I'm guessing a reality show, book deals, posing for Playboy, etc. will be how she supports herself.

I just saw on the news that her lawyer has hired an agent for her. :shuffle:

You're right about that. I don't know what's going to happen to her. Hell, she had a job with Universal, which, would have been an excellent opportunity with or without a college degree--huge organization and a ton of opportunities and she got fired from there. So, she didn't make it in media, so she took another route to get her face in front of a camera.

She's got a week to try to figure something out. Like I said previous post....whether she realizes it or not, not getting released today is a blessing to her. She needs to try to figure out what her next move is. Safety is certainly an issue. Money and a dwelling is also of immediate concern.

Star Jones actually says that she expects that she her to go back to her mother. And, when you think about it, that kind of makes sense. She and her mother have a twisted relationship. Having watched her mother's repeated attempts to save her misguided daughter, this wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Hell, didn't the porno biz rescind their offer? You've really got to be at the bottom of the barrel if you're a pseudo-celeb/infamous personality and can't get a deal doing a porno.

I think accidents are viewed as possible murders all the time. Her father was a cop? He would know about that.

Well MacMadame, considering the above quote from FiveRinger, I think 3 years is optimistic.
:lol: You could be right. I guess it depends on how much money she makes...

Who knows what's going to happen? Aphrodite Jones was on HLN having an absolute coronary because Baez has a package deal with William Morris Agency--they are going to represent both him and Casey.

The judge has real concerns about releasing the names of the jurors....safety concerns. He's in court now talking about how the media has been disrespectful, doesn't care about anyone and how his own life has changed.

Read the Caylee's Law petition. What's a timely manner? They need to define that otherwise I will not sign it.

I also had a problem with some of the wording.

That's the problem here. The prosecutor's murder theory conflicted with a posible manslaughter charge, leaving the jury with insufficient grounds to find murder and doubt as to manslaughter.

Thanks for the interesting legal perspective. I do get what you're saying (although it brings up the question of why people can be simultaneously tried for murder and manslaughter). But the thing is, I believe the state was able to show beyond reasonable doubt that Caylee had been chloroformed and that she had been in the trunk (the computer chloroform searches had taken place months earlier, so it's not possible that they occurred after Caylee was dead). However, chloroform can be used both to sedate and to kill, so in this particular example the same evidence could support either unintentional manslaughter or murder. In looking at the whole body of evidence, many things point toward murder, but I don't think intent was proved well enough. The act yes, intent no. So surely our system doesn't say you can't convict for manslaughter because you think without any reasonable doubt that a criminal act that led to death occurred, but you do have reasonable doubt about whether it might have been murder instead? :confused:

But maybe I'm just annoyed that so much in life these days encourages black and white thinking. If not this, then that. If a cause of death can't be 100% proved, then no murder occurred. I know the law has to be this way in certain aspects out of necessity, but it doesn't reflect how much of real life operates not in an either/or fashion, but on a continuum.


I did read that the CSI could have been done better. Like, you can pinpoint where someone drowned by taking a sample of the victim's bone marrow and examining the makeup of diatoms within and match them to the body of water.

I think the issue with that was that you'd need to test the diatoms from the water sample at roughly the same time that the death occurred, and since nobody reported the death, had access to the remains for months, or even claimed that's what happened for nearly 3 years, it wasn't possible to determine.


I would have loved to see Nancy Grace's head explode!

But Scott Peterson was a whole different case. He was cheating on her, so did he want to be married to her? Did he want to be a father? Doubtful.

Re: Nancy Grace, it was pretty epic! :) A well-deserved head explosion. As for the differences between the Peterson case and Casey's, I don't know. I think people are more easily able to believe a man might kill his wife, especially if he has another woman. I think the idea of a woman killing her child is really hard to grasp. Susan Smith was apparently a good mother too by most or all accounts. Even in Scott Peterson's case, those around him including Laci's family initially came to his defense, saying he would never do that. I don't really buy the prosecution's line that Casey did it so that she could go party - I think that if she killed her intentionally, that might have been one part of it but it would have been due to deeper psychological issues that probably even Casey wouldn't be able to fully articulate even to herself. Also, her friends may have said that to their knowledge she was a good mother, but in her father's suicide note he writes that he had such guilt because for months he suspected things weren't right and he felt that he could have prevented Caylee's death if he'd intervened.
