I have just finished reading an article by handwriting detective Michelle Dresbold.
It was thoroughly fascinating. The science behind the simple scribbling of letters and the psychology that it relates to. However, more fascinating still, to me at least, is the unabating hunger for the unattainable task to know every single aspect about Casey Anthony.
This case just doesn’t seem to shut up! Why?
More and more news are coming out of the court room, the prison, the police service. Everyone has something to say about her. Everyone has something to point out about Casey Anthony’s behavior, words, conduct in court.
The public is hungry for news and the media is feeding it big juicy pieces. Once again I ask, why?
Why is the public so ravenous for news about Casey Anthony?
Is it because of her persona?
The crime she was tried for?
The question that I feel more pressing though is why is the public so eager to condemn and even spill into a criminal mind themselves with threats to her life and promises of revenge? And why is it viewed as acceptable by some pockets of people or individuals to turn into vigilantes?
Is it true outrage for the crime allegedly committed or a deeper and more disturbing sentiment? A chance to let out one’s anger and demons onto a sudden society outcast?
Let those wacky creative thoughts out of the bag and share them with the rest of us. I look forward to reading them.
