Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey Anthony is on trial for the
child's death and jury selection has finally begun.
Will there be "Justice for Caylee?"
The trial is scheduled to now begin on Monday, the
23rd of May, 2011.
Casey Anthony has cried in court whenever her name is
mentioned, specifically when the Judge addresses the
potential jurors and reads out the indictment. Yet, there
are no tears for Caylee whenever her name is mentioned.
Caylee Anthony's grandparents, George & Cindy Anthony,
have now (3 years later) tradmarked Caylee Anthony's
name AND the phrase "Justice for Caylee" ... AND.....have
filed for an accounting of the monies made by websites who
sold "JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE" items in the past.
All about the money? You decide.
A day late and a dollar short as the old saying goes.
If they were concerned about the misuse of Caylee's
name it should have been done the year of her death,
after her remains were found.
The phrase "Justice for Caylee" has been used by those on
the Internet who wanted to show their support for Caylee,
a child they believe was murdered, since the day it was
reported she had been "missing for 31 days."
So why now are the Anthony's making it clear they "own"
Trademarking Caylee's name I can understand. Many
victim's families do so in order to prevent persons from
profiting from their loved one's name.
However, in this case, the only one I've seen express any
real love and anguish about Caylee's death has been George
Anthony. Although, his and Cindy, and Lee Anthony's antics
in the past have made their concern for Casey Anthony
appear of more interest to them than that of Caylee's death.
That being said, I can understand their wishing to save their
daughter from the death penalty, and at the same time wanting
to know exactly what happened to their grandchild.
But this trademarking of the phrase "Justice for Caylee" reeks
just as much as dead fish lying on a river bank, left there by
unconcerned persons who obviously aren't really interested in
fishing, or the sportsman's etiquette. (Release back what you
aren't going to eat.) Those dead fish smell awful and reek badly.
This trademarking of the phrase smells, frankly, of self serving,
grasping and greediness on their part.
