Casey Anthony’s case had become almost as popular as the O.J. Simpson trials with people across the nation tuning in everyday to see the trial proceed concerning the questionable death of Anthony’s young daughter. Today just minutes ago the jury declared Anthony not guilty. NewsOne simply reports, “The woman from Orlando Florida accused of killing her 3-year-old daughter, Kaylee Anthony, has been found not guilty of murdering her daughter. She was found guilty of providing false information to an officer.”
The online social networks are buzzing with responses from the general public. One person identified on Twitter as TheeRachelB tweeted, “Yall HATE to use the race card, bt we got BLACK women going to JAIL for putting their kids in school in a better district.” This woman does not have to be right, but she certainly makes a legitimate a point.
