Will Cindy’s lies sentence Casey to death or let her walk free?
Keeping up the ‘ All American Image’ can be lethal. I think this case has demonstrated what can happen to a family when the head of the household, in this case, Cindy Anthony, tried to keep up that image.
With control comes power. In order to combine the two, you must have followers, whom you will eventually render weak so you will be looked upon as the stronger.
In the case of a dominant female, you will choose an inferior male to become your spouse, someone who can be easily led around on your leash. The children you bear will also come under your guidance and dominance. Your spouse will be told that you will handle all of the upbringing and decipiline of your children. You overlook their lies, stealing or even their gambling addictions. You cover for them so they will become dependant on you. It does not bother you at all that you are the sole bread winner in your family unit.
As long as you are in control, you can mold your followers so they will perform the way you want. Your way is keeping up the All American Image.
On July 15th, Casey Anthony told her brother, Lee, “Mom always said I was an unfit mother. Maybe I am a spiteful bitch,” not verbatim but close.
George Anthony, in his suicide note, “I could never live up to your expectations.”
The shocker was Lee Anthony getting on the stand and proving his mother lied when she denied sending two PI’s out to Suburban to search for a deceased Caylee.
There seems to be hope for Lee but he does appear to need some mental therapy to help him deal with his hidden emotions.
Will the jurors see the side of Cindy Anthony that I have described? Will they have sympathy for Casey? Was Casey so frightened of her mother that she had to hide her pregnancy? Did Cindy cover up any misconduct of sexual abuse in the family to keep up the family’s image?
In the closing statements, you can rest assured that Cindy Anthony’s lies will be exposed. She was at work and not at home when the searches for chloroform etc were made on the home computer. She did not call George and tell him someone left the ladder up to the pool.
Cindy Anthony can take all the credit for a hung jury; a death sentence for her daughter; or Casey being found not guilty.
I predict that Lee will move far away from Orlando and George will eventually use that gun.
