    the problem is law enforcement not the parents. they don't allow for us to report until after it's been over 24 hours. they say thier hands are tied and this may just be a simple case of run away any ways. do we need more thrown on the parents? make it a law then for the law enforcement too accept a report within 24 hours.

    I am not condoning what Caylee's mother did. I do not know all the facts or events in this case. Most of you do not either. What the media published, is not always correctly and completely informative. Most times sensationalized for mass reading. What I am saying is that so many jump on a band wagon without true thought of the consequences. We feel outraged, but is this vendetta or justice? Oh btw, I am not saying that you should all jump off a cliff, I am not that inhuman. I do think this law leads to another mass incarceration ticket to fill our jails with vindictive injustice destroying our tax dollars by supporting more prisons, leading to less dollars spend on reform and education. Any politician that supports this law is looking for a free ride on a band wagon to political election.

    Any mandatory law is not just. Not all things fall under a blanket. Why have a justice system? You no longer need one. There are so many laws now that this is truly unnecessary. Do not pass Go. Go straight to jail... This herd mentality is crazy. So if I say all that signed this should follow the leader and jump off the cliff and the world would be a better place, then I would be as inhuman as all of you. God forgive you and hopefully you will see that this truly did not solve anything but bog down true justice. The most inhuman society and vengeful one is now the USA. Mass incarceration vs Mass education. For all those baby boomers. Do you remember family gatherings, school activities, and belief in Church and country? Helping our fellow man instead of condemning him? Where are you now? This has been replaced with jumping on a band wagon without true thought. Look what Harsh on Crime has done. Destroyed families and education in the USA. Now we focus on throwing everyone away without a second chance. God bless Caylee, but is justice served by the greater wrong for her. This is not the norm. No one teaches us how to be good parents and with this law good parents will suffer as well as bad.
