View Full Version : The Casey Anthony murder trial is now one hot ticket for entertainment

Orlando, Florida (CNN) -- Casey Anthony, also known as the "tot mom," is no Lady Gaga, but her murder trial here is the hottest ticket in town.
People spend the night waiting in line for one of 50 courtroom seats reserved for the public. Tempers flare and police are called. And then, once they're given a ticket, they stampede like cattle.


Only in Florida, where criminal justice can be a spectator sport, are Disney World passes the back-up option.
Anthony, a 25-year-old high school dropout, is accused of capital murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. If convicted of murder, she faces the death penalty.


What's the big draw?


"Lie after lie," says one trial watcher. "I can't imagine the grief that family has gone through," says another. "I'm here for Caylee," says yet another. "I'm waiting for Casey to step up and tell us what happened."


If the first two weeks of the trial focused on family ties, secrets and lies, the third week was all about the forensics. The case is at its most gruesome stage as jurors and spectators hear how duct tape was placed over Caylee's nose and mouth and that animals gnawed on her tiny bones. She was wearing a T-shirt that said "Big trouble comes in small packages," and was buried in a trash bag in a lot not far from her grandparents' home.


The bug expert was the top attraction on Saturday -- Day 16. It was, as one trial watcher in line observed, like "'Law & Order' meets 'CSI.'" Competition for seats was more fierce than ever.

As the lines swell and emotions flare, keeping the peace is a challenge. On Friday, paramedics carted a woman away on a stretcher after a confrontation with a trio of would-be line jumpers.


And so, red and blue police lights flashed in the humid, predawn darkness Saturday as the line in front of the Orange County Courthouse grew to 100 strong. Courthouse security officers, Orange County sheriff's deputies and Orlando city police were out in force and people in line were cautioned that anyone who caused trouble would lose their spot. Anyone who stampeded would be arrested.

In Session: Conflict ensues among hopeful spectators at Casey Anthony trial (http://insession.blogs.cnn.com/2011/06/11/conflict-ensues-among-hopeful-spectators-at-casey-anthony-trial/)


The trial is held on the 23rd floor, a penthouse built specially for high-profile trials. But it has been years since a trial has packed them in like the Anthony case. Even Judge Belvin Perry makes comparisons to the O.J. Simpson trial.

Saturday's spectators did a good job of policing themselves as they waited for the numbered tickets handed out each morning. Snagging one requires extreme dedication, a good lawn chair and a bladder of steel. Some people have waited in line all night, only to get kicked out of court for violating the rule against snoozing.


Troy Mitchell, 41, of Denver, Colorado, started camping out in front of the courthouse at 10:30 p.m. Friday and got the No. 1 ticket. He says adrenaline kept him awake, and he confides that he has driven by the Anthony house. He also has been to the former home of another child whose mysterious death still occasionally makes headlines 14 years later -- JonBenet Ramsey, who lived in Boulder, Colorado.
Don and Marianne Acebedo of Sacramento, California, joined Mitchell at 11 p.m. and soon after came the Florida contingent, which included Amber Block and Megan and Kathi Jennings.


Spend eight or nine hours in line with other people and a sense of community grows. People give their neighbors nicknames, usually based on a hometown or number in line. As they discuss the case in minute detail, they give the lawyers nicknames, too: Bozo, Colonel Sanders and Barbra Streisand are a few examples.


"Is Nancy here? Do you know Nancy?" several people in line asked. Almost everyone in Saturday's line said they followed the case on "Nancy Grace," a legal affairs show on CNN's sister network, HLN. But not everyone.
"I don't know who Nancy Grace is," said one woman, who declined to give her name or line number. Her neighbor, No. 64, set her straight, holding up a printout copy of Grace's publicity photo.
"I am going to go Google Nancy Grace," the anonymous trial watcher said.




(Check out Nancy Grace's blog) (http://nancygrace.blogs.cnn.com/)


Breakfast orders were taken as the sun came up, and a burrito was tossed down the line. The group raised $70 for a woman whose car was towed because of an unscrupulous parking lot attendant.


Everyone in the top 10 had arrived by 2 a.m. but even before the sun came up, it was clear that half the people in line might not make it inside.
"I was part of the mad stampede," Kathi Jennings said, explaining that she was there the day a woman was trampled by spectators running across the street and down the hallways.


This time, she brought a Sharpie marker and suggested people write numbers on their hands. "Look guys, have you been here before?" she asked the others. "It's going to get bad."


Soon she was nicknamed "the Sharpie lady" as the others agreed to her system. By 4:30 a.m., Jennings had numbered the hands of 50 people. Fifteen minutes later, things got heated when Tracy Bucciarelli, of Chicago, arrived and took exception to the Sharpie system.


"Those aren't the rules on the Internet," she protested, trying to start her own "official" line, according to the others.


"She was causing a commotion. I don't know where she got her sense of entitlement," said Julie Jones, who identified herself as "No. 38 and proud."
The fifth person in line, Becky Davis, of Orlando, says she turned to the interloper and scolded, "God doesn't like nasty."


No. 13, who spells her name Joe.C Castillo, dialed 911 as more people protested and more heated words were exchanged. Castillo, a dark-haired woman with a strong New York accent, also was behind the fundraiser for the woman whose car was towed.


"Got a dollar?" she asked each person as she cruised the line. Later, she confided that Bucciarelli had chipped in, adding, "Maybe she's not such a crackerjack."

I find this to be disgusting in every sense of the word. People actually think that this trial is something to laugh about. A two year old girl died. Do you think that these people actually care about her? No, they don't. All they care about is entertainment. This isn't Law and Order, CSI, The Closer, or any of that police/law/forensic bullshit. A child died, guys. Have a heart!

Tetris and I agree on this. It's all a sideshow to distract the public from real issues.

This case should be open and shut. If the girl was dead before mom threw her in the trunk, why did she need to duck-tape her mouth? Case closed. Selfish bitch murdered her daughter, move on.

I wonder if Casey wasn't attractive, would this case be considered high profile gaining national attention? There have been people who've killed their children in the worse ways but the mothers weren't considered attractive.

Casey is a high school dropout who partied all the time not giving a damn. Now, she's a celebrity and people just admire her because she's a screw up. Next, you'll have people waiting in line to get autographs and pictures. They're already waiting in line to see endure misery. I won't be surprised if Casey writes a book. If that happens, it'll be best seller!:{ If we as Americans continue to support criminals and their bullshit, this country will crash and burn and we won't have anyone to help us extinguish the flames. Major networks like CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX, Bravo, and Lifetime are making big money now. They're treating this case as if it's a TV primetime show. More views from idiots=more money

People don't care about Casey Anthony as a person because she's viewed as a product rather than a person. They don't care. They just don't fucking care!

i mean, it's sad that the baby died i guess, but babies die all the time and bitches kill their babies all the time. since nobody can answer why america gives so much of a fuck the real question is why do YOU give a fuck?

what's everyone SUPPOSED to be paying attention too?
Bin Laden being dead?

if ppl wanna fixate on the case let it be, it's entertaining as fuck, so what? It's not gonna be the end of western civilization just because 32 year old fat white woman wanna know if she's innocent or guilty, nor will it hinder these peoples minimal to no contribution or consequence to your life and day to day affairs.


a big problem in this country is ppl giving too much a fuck about other ppls business and 'problems', but if you want that problem gone you have to realize that you giving a fuck about what those ppl watch and how 'problematic' it allegedly is make you no worst then them as far as not being a faggot.

i suppose it could be viewed as a little disheartening to see the average american more concerned with fighting amongst each other for a spot in a day long line to more or less gossip over the death of a little girl - rather than put that much focus towards what their government is up to, what their kids and their education is up to, what their own lives are up to, for some examples.

but then again the mindstate and actions of the masses do not affect me and i shouldnt be concerned
and in being concerned i just became as irresponsible as the next man so i should stop typing and not worry about it

Well, the lawyers, doctors, the judge, the media, and her father have all made a ton of money off this case. Why send her off to jail? In a few months, the bitch will write a book and it'll be best seller, of course. They'll make a movie about her. Hell, she might even obtain her own TV show. Watch as the opportunities pour in.

Only in America.{-__-} This case was NOTHING but entertainment. No body cared!

Ya, I'm watching. I really doubt though that she would write a book. The Jury did not find her guilty does not mean she did not do it. There are still peeps who think she is guilty, it's just that there was not enough evidence.

She is still to go down for the charges of lying to popo and I don't know how much time that will be in the bing if any.

Well, you had a pedophile father who's bat shit, a daughter who's bat shit, a child who had open access to a pool and no way to tell how and when the child actually died or who was around. When it came to actual evidence that had no holes in it, there really wasn't any. I'm shocked at the outrage really. People shouldn't be convicted just on character assassinations and cheesey attempts to pull at folks heart strings. Nothing objective about that. Innocent until proven guilty, not just innocent until we get so mad about the victim we become over-run with blood lust.

it was determined she had been researching chloroform and how to break a neck with her computer, which is pretty creepy and telling..


how the public responded throughout the trial and to the verdict was a great example of how humans use confirmation bias to shape their reality.

True, however the trace levels of chloroform found in the trunk of her car were so light they could have come from a household cleaning product and multiple people had access to the car and the computer.
That and I just did a search on flesh eating bacteria, if someone around me gets it and dies, I hope no one assumes foul play.

I noticed it's mostly females who are the most pissed, because the media gets it's ratings by playing with their fragile scale of emotions.

I can explain why, when the media gets ahold of a story like this, it's the only thing the national news networks report and they're still doing it even after the story is over. When we only have one story to follow and no one bothers reading the crawl that says other topics underneath the news anchors talking, it's kind of obvious where the popularity comes from. We don't have real news organizations, we have entertainment companies who specialize in exploiting people and their most basist feelings and emotions.

It's not a choice, they just wont shut up about it.

Yeah, but Amy Fisher could actually be linked to the crime. This crazy chick could only be made out as a liar and a nut job, which isn't good enough, since she lives in a house with a bunch of other nut jobs.
I think the family would make reality tv history, but if I see that show come out, I might just send someone a mail bomb. That said, I would probably be curious about her adult exploits.
