    Default Caylee's Law Petition

    I know we have a Casey Anthony thread, but I think it's appropriate to turn the attention where it really belongs...to Caylee.

    There is a petition ( and I don't like a new law for everything), but in the light of this case, and others it makes sense.

    This petition is to make it a Federal offense to fail to report a missing child within 24 hours of the child being missing

    drafted by Florida legislator Bill Hagor of Boca Raton, the petition now has over 600,000 signature

    sign it here www.change.org

    Florida legislator drafts 'Caylee's Law'
    Legislation would make failure to report child missing in timely manner a felony
    udated 7/7/2011 3:40:40 PM ET

    BOCA RATON, Fla. State Rep. Bill Hager, R-Boca Raton, said Wednesday he's drafted a new piece of legislation after the outcome of the Casey Anthony murder trial.

    "Caylee's Law" would make it a felony in the state of Florida for a legal guardian who fails to report a missing child in a timely manner.
    "One of the dark clouds, if you will, that hung, I believe, over this entire trial was the mother's behavior," Hager told WPBF 25 News.
    Casey Anthony was acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, on Tuesday.
    Caylee disappeared in June 2008, and her mother didn't report her missing for 31 days. The toddler's remains were found in a wooded area near the Anthony family's Orlando home in December 2008.

    "The one gap in law, if you will, was the gap of no requirement for that mother or any comparably situated parent to so report," Hager said.
    In Florida, what Casey Anthony did wasn't a crime, but Hager believes that should change.


    "Rapidly reporting cases of missing children have the highest probability of being solved," Hager said. "Those that are late reported have the lowest probability of being solved."
    Hager said he decided to draft the legislation after learning of the verdict.
    Several other states are pushing for similar legislation.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    we have a guy in Michigan who insists that he placed his three boys with an underground rescue group...although now I believe he has changed his story to say that they were focibly seized by the group

    no one knows what the fate of these children is

    anything that can work to protect children and punish those who FAIL to protect them is OK by me

    Do you really believe that reporting that child missing within 24 would have changed a darn thing? She was already dead!

    Your law will not save the lives of those children in the custody of people who murder them.

    You want to legislate more laws which wouldn't have changed a thing in this case, yet only serve to satisfy the knee jerk desires of those who are supposedly seeking so-called "justice for Caylee".

    It didn't take that stupid bitch of a mother 24 hours to murder that poor child. Your law would have changed NOTHING for Caylee.

    "Caylee's Law". What a bunch of horseshit.

    Maybe not to save Caylee...but if it came to light sooner that Caylee was missing and Casey's lies were obvious sooner, it MAY have made the search for her remains start that much sooner. Given the fact that the search may have started at the tail end of the dry season here, rather than after a soaking wet/hurricane season, the remains may well have been found soon enough with enough evidence to where Casey would not be walking away from the murder charges.

    sure someone who murders a kid is unlikely to report the child missing so that the search can start just as in this case, but it gives the law another avenue to enforce what should be a basic rule for keeping your child safe



    I'm stunned that there is no law on the books already

    At least had that happened, justice MAY have been served in this case. There was no law that was going to save Caylee, as it is pretty much assumed that she died a month before she was reported missing.

    this law serves one purpose - to charge scumbag parents with something else if they can't nail them on other charges. I have no issue with this.

    How in the hay would that have changed the verdict in this circus trial? Justice?? What,, that she gets hit with a charge of 'failure to report' for murdering her daughter? You guys are really reaching.
