Four states are drafting legislation in the wake of the Casey Anthony trial which will force parents to report missing children in the first 24 hours.
Lawmakers in Florida, New York, Oklahoma and West Virginia have announced they will propose versions of the legislation, which comes in the wake of nationwide fury following the acquittal of young mother Anthony on charges that she murdered her two-year-old daughter Caylee.
The prosecution case in the Anthony trial was largely hampered by the fact that Caylee's body was found so late. The child was reported missing a full month after her family last saw her.

OK - I guess you’re right. We should lynch her as soon as she’s released from jail.
Lynch her? No, we should shun her, along with those lazy, idiot, Pinellas 12 jurors, the bird-flipping, lying-scum lawyers, her lying family members. And not EVER contribute one cent of profit to any of them for murdering a child and enabling her to walk away free.
By the way, just how many hours of this trial did YOU watch?
Not too different than the ones who put Obama in the WH.
I watched none of it and won’t be buying any books or watching any movies about it, either. However, I do think that TV cameras in the courtroom played an overwhelming role in this disaster. Without that factor, she might be going to prison on a appropriate conviction for an appropriate charge. Without that, she would be a nobody instead of a high-profile “notorious” person whether in or out of prison. The prosecutor presented evidence and argued for the admissibility of contested evidence on 3 felonies. He got convictions on 4 misdemeanors. I’m not inclined to blame the jurors for that.
You watched none of it. Ha. That explains everything.
OK - So I guess you watched a lot of it? So what? Twelve jurors voted. Neither of us were one of those twelve. End of story.
I watched a lot of the trial and you watched none. My knowledge of the evidence is far superior to yours.
That’s the end of MY story and you are stuck with it.
“Sorry, but I think this is just knee-jerk lawmaking as per usual.”
I am getting tired of all these “so and so’s law” laws popping up. It’s the newest annoying fad.
The lawmakers name the laws after some poor kid who was beaten, killed, raped etc. so that no one will dare oppose them no matter how intrusive or plain stupid the law they propose is.
(I am not stating any opinion on the proposed law in question here, btw)
I hate hearing the term “(inert name here)’s law” as much as it grates on me to hear every other damn news report start off with “grief counselors are available ...” every time something bad happens to someone who goes to school, taught at a school, once worked at a school, once walked by a school, once knew a guy who used to walk by a guy who used to go to school, etc.
Both are examples of trying to mold a persons thinking or opinions by trickery.
I ain’t stuck with a damned thing. I don’t have my panties in a wad over something over which I have zero control, either.
I think Caylee’s law is bad law or they will not get it right.
What if two parents or guardians share custody and each thinks the other has the child. The Child is found months later in a swamp and a parent could be charged with a felony while Casey remains free.
Or if we had a jury that just wanted to go home instead of consider the overwhelming lies and guilt presented to them.
