Public outrage has been building since Anthony was acquitted Tuesday of first-degree murder and other serious charges in connection with her daughter’s death in 2008.

At least two deputies have arrived at the Orange County Courthouse carrying gas masks in anticipation of a strong reaction following this morning’s sentencing of Casey Anthony.

Other officers are patrolling on horses.

Calls to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office about its preparations have not been immediately returned.

About 50 people have gathered peacefully outside the courthouse this morning for today’s milestone moment.


How many months of man-hours did Florida police spend searching for little Caylee Anthony back in 2008, while her mother, Casey Anthony, knew exactly where the child’s body was?

If you were the victim of a crime in Orlando, Fla., between July and December 2008, you should be enraged that the police couldn’t prevent or investigate your crime because they were too busy looking for a missing child whose mother already knew the kid was dead.

Coulter Op-Ed: Casey Anthony – Single Mom of the Year!

Yesterday, as the world wept, 12 sun-scorched jurors in this burg a stone’s throw from Disney World believed a goofy fantasy. They decided that Casey was too young, too pretty, too innocent, if a tad shallow and self-absorbed, to have murdered her adorable 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, on her way to competing to a “hot body” contest.

So Casey skips free, with just a three-year interruption in her drinking and partying and fooling around. She was convicted of lying to police — one would assume, about killing her daughter. But wait! She didn’t kill the kid. The jury has spoken with a forked tongue.

How will they live with themselves?

The glove fits – this head case becomes new O.J.

As Casey Anthony prepares for sentencing, a new state law is being proposed in Florida – named after her daughter, Caylee.


The stunning not guilty verdict in the Casey Anthony murder trial leaves a big question: how did little Caylee die? The answer may never be known as it was a central focus in the trial but was never fully investigated as the spotlight shown on Casey Anthony’s habit of making up fantastic lies.

Emergency responders on the 4th of July from Journal Star on Vimeo

Emergency responders on the 4th of July from Journal Star on Vimeo.A large-scale illegal fireworks display in a housing complex adjacent to the state’s largest Fourth of July celebration turned into what police termed a near-riot Monday as tens of thousands of revelers tried to filter out of Downtown.

As the grand finale of the Red, White and Boom! event exploded over the Illinois River, emergency responders were called at 9:46 p.m. to a trash bin fire in nearby Taft Homes, where commercial-grade fireworks had been shooting into the sky since before the riverfront show began.

A fire engine and two Peoria police officers responded, but encountered what police described as a crowd of hundreds of people and an impassable Hancock Street choked with trash and fireworks – both live and spent. The debris blocked access to the burning trash bin.

The Justice Department is obstructing the congressional investigation of a U.S. law enforcement operation intended to crack down on major weapons traffickers on the Southwest border, according to the embattled leader of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Ken Melson, the acting director of the ATF, lobbed the accusation when he sneaked in for an interview with congressional investigators on July 4, two days ahead of his scheduled interview with the inspector general about the operation known as “Fast and Furious,” Fox News has learned.

“If his account is accurate, then ATF leadership appears to have been effectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand,” Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Eric Holder. “That approach distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation.”

The Justice Department is reportedly looking to oust Melson, who has been acting ATF director since April 2009, as the agency deals with its biggest scandal in nearly two decades. Andrew Traver, who was tapped in November by President Obama to become the permanent ATF director, could be named as acting director until the Senate acts on his nomination, sources have said.
