Caylee's law petition

DURANT, Oklahoma -- After Casey Anthony received the not guilty verdict in her daughter Caylee's death, an Oklahoma woman is doing her part to create a new law in Caylee's name.

Michelle Crowder of Durant started a Change.org petition on Tuesday and it's already gone viral with more than 130,000 supporters in all 50 states joining in 24 hours.

The petition is asking Congress to create "Caylee's Law." The law would make it a federal offense for a parent or guardian to fail to report a child's disappearance to law enforcement.

Find out how you can sign the petition.

I can see federal prisons becoming even more overcrowded already....

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Define "timely". 5 minutes?

Define "timely". 5 minutes? a day? a week?

I mean if this law sets a 24 hour time limit and you didn't file a "timely" report because you were looking for the kid yourself for that 24 hours...

Yippee, just what we need.

Yippee, just what we need. More laws. No doubt, Caylee would still be alive if we just had enough laws on the books... While we are at it, we should just have trials held on facebook and skip the whole trial by jury part. Obviously, judging a case based on sensationalized media coverage is a lot more accurate than jurors sitting in a trial room. Actually, screw the trial, lets just draw lots and randomly select someone to go to jail because SOMEONE has to pay because a girl died, doesn't matter if you have evidence or not because it will make me feel better if someone is sitting in jail.

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

Hm.. mark your calendar, it's a red letter day.  I agree with you.

Timely? How long is that?

Timely? How long is that? What is the punishment going to be? Will the punishment be the same no matter how long it has been? What if the child was staying with someone other than the parent? Is it reasonable to have this punishment in the majority of cases where the child comes back unharmed, instead of dying? 

This is all emotional reaction and zero rational thought.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare
