How Can We Make Casey Anthony Spill The Beans?

By Robert Paul Reyes

Caylee Anthony, an adorable 3-year-old girl, has been missing for more than a month. Whenever her face appears on TV it breaks my heart knowing that there`s little chance that this story will have a happy ending. Caylee has become America`s sweetheart, we`re all hoping against hope that a miracle takes place and she comes home safely.

Caylee`s Mom, Casey Anthony, was just released from jail; she faces charges of child neglect, making false statements to the police, and obstructing an investigation.

Casey waited a month before reported her child missing, and prior to being incarcerated she claims to have exhausted all leads searching for her baby. But there are many photographs showing her drinking and partying in nightclubs, all of these images were taken after her child disappeared.

Casey has refused to cooperate with police, hence the "obstruction of justice" charge. Whenever I see her face on TV I want to throw my remote control at the screen.

It`s infuriating that Casey refuses to talk to the police. If she didn`t have anything to do with the disappearance of Casey, it`s incumbent upon her to share everything she knows with law enforcement authorities.

How can we make this woman talk? Florida`s finest have had little success persuading her to come clean.

Pampering Casey and making her the focus of the story isn`t going to make her more forthcoming. She strikes me as a spoiled brat, who was doted upon by her parents.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, maybe it`s time to call in Darth Vader (Dick Cheney) and give him carte blanche to do his best. If Cheney knocked on my door, before he uttered one word I would confess to being creative with my tax return, exceeding the speed limit on a daily basis, tearing the tag from my mattress, and making a dart board of Bush`s mug.

A creature with a glum character like Cheney has few hobbies, but I`m sure waterboarding is one of them. Let Cheney have a go with Casey, and he`ll solve the case in no time.

I don`t mean to make light of a serious subject, but Casey`s intransigence is driving me up the wall. Caylee`s grandparents and other family members deserve to know what happened, and Casey shouldn`t be holding anything back.

If waterboarding is not the answer, do any of my faithful readers have any ideas how to make Casey Anthony spill the beans?
