Apparently the legal giants who have once again shown that justice is blind, deaf and dumb in America have come to believe their own publicity and really think that Casey Anthony is a legal untouchable in our system.
Times are tough all over. In fact, they are so tough that criminals are ratting themselves out, if the money is right. According to the Associated Press, "a western Pennsylvania jewelry store owner says a man charged with burglarizing the shop called and offered to help solve the case after the owner offered a reward.

On the one hand, you have taxpayers at home whose homes are threatened. On the other, a TV appearance to plug a national campaign involving an election that is still well over a year away.
