By now millions of words have been written about the Casey Anthony trial and the “not guilty” verdict announced today. The ratings obsessed bottom feeders like Nancy Grace are simultaneously dancing on their cloven hooves over the ratings todays verdict is bringing in and crying about the end of the Anthony gravy train.
I don’t intend to talk about Caylee or Casey or whether the verdict was just. I want to talk about 51-year-old Robin Wilkie of Lake Minnetonka Minnesota. Robin has spent thousands of dollars and almost a month in Florida to get into the trial 15 times. Here’s what Robin had to say:
"True crime has become a unique genre of entertainment," Wilkie said. "Her (Casey's) stories are so extreme and fantastic it's hard to believe they're true but that's what engrosses people. This case has sex, lies and video tapes — just like on reality TV."
No Robin, it’s not just like on reality TV, it is reality. A woman was on trial for her life accused of the murder of her two year old daughter. It’s a tragedy all the way around not a “unique genre of entertainment”. Go back to Minnesota Robin, I’m sure your 40 cats miss you (if they haven’t starved to death by now). Freak.
