Rick Ross thinks he’s Big Meech, Lil B thinks he’s Hannah Montana, so now I wonder if Casey Anthony thinks she’s OJ Simpson. After the entire hip-pop world broke out in an giant uproar, I can’t help but wonder what is going to happen to Casey Anthony.
Will she get the OJ Simpson treatment? Will she be cast out of normal day to day life and never be able to make a living? Will she become a huge star or simply become a question on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"?
I remember when the OJ situation first popped off and visions of his white bronco interupted my beloved New York Knicks losing their chance at an NBA championship like it was yesterday. I remember when Judge Ito, Mark Furman, Johnny Cochran and Robert Kardashian all played vital rolls in getting OJ Simpson off the hook for murder. There was a feeling of extreme joy in my hood, but this is different. We aren't happy, we aren't upset, we are just shocked.
OJ’s courtroom drama played in the backdrop of the Rodney King riots, interracial dating and it was a much different time.
Casey Anthony on the other hand partied for a month while her daughter was missing, but that doesn’t make her guilty. A jury of her peers concluded that she was not guilty of killing her child, just like a jury concluded OJ Simpson was not guilty of killing his wife. Never mind the questionable Google searches, lying to the cops and party pics and tattoos she got while her daughter was lying in a swamp rotting.
I wonder, will Casey Anthony get the OJ Treatment, now? Will she be forced to give up her Facebook page and all of her worldly belongings to a daycare center somewhere in Florida? Will she now be in and out of jail for the remainder of life and eventually giving football numbers for shoplifting her necklace she pawned in order to go party at a kegger?
One thing I’ve noticed is that justice is funny. It’s like the movie "Final Destination" when you think about it. In the movie Final Destination “death” stalks victims who’ve previously escape their demise earlier. Guilt is the same way. Just like OJ, John Gotti, Al Capone and many others who got in trouble guilt eventually catches up to them.
So when it comes to what’s next for Casey Anthony, one can only think that’s after the reality shows, book offers, party hosting and chances to be as famous as Kim Kardashian are over, her fate has been dealt. I mean being found not guilty in a high profile case is nothing more than a sentence to write a book called, "If I Killed My Daughter Here Is How I Would Have Done It” by Casey Anthony.
I’ll be on the lookout for that!
What do you think will be next for Casey Anthony? Book Deal? Will it be a reality show, Twitter Powerhouse, Oprah’s Ottoman or the next OJ Simpson, only time will tell.
