Lightning Strikes Caylee Anthony Memorial Hours After Casey Sentenced

July 8th, 2011 // 132 Comments

Because this story isn’t fucked up enough, lightning apparently struck the makeshift Caylee Anthony memorial just hours after Casey Anthony was sentenced yesterday for lying to police officers about her dead daughter because innocent people do that. Anyway, you can only guess the type of quotes flooding into the local paper already:

“It could be a sign from the angels that they aren’t happy with what’s happened,” said 40-year-old Keyla Lugo of Orlando, who has visited the memorial in the Chickasaw Oaks subdivision twice this week. “It’s a sad day for Orlando, for Caylee and for justice. The rain, the lightning, the storm — it’s the heavens indicating they aren’t happy.”
… “God has spoken. Casey’s guilty,” said Nicole Perez of Vero Beach.

God’s unhappy? Really? Because I’m pretty sure He had it out for this kid. Otherwise, I don’t know how else you explain letting her fall out of Casey Anthony’s vagina, get murdered, have her mom duck what should’ve been at least child abuse/neglect charges and then have the site where they found Caylee’s dead body light on fire for shits and giggles. Angels were probably walking up to Him after that last lightning bolt going, “I think you got her.”

    Jeesh. God must have really hated that kid.

    • first god lets her get murdered, now he pisses lightening on her memorial.

    • Jake

      Fish, we all know there is no God. I thought you were on that boat, too. But then this post? Looks, ridding the world of insane superstitions is a hard enough task, without the rational perpetuating the irrational.

    • So fucked up, I know, but the angels coming up to God saying “I think you got her.” was one of the funniest lines I have ever read on here. Fucking Funny.

    • anonymous

      Wow…I am not one to usually comment, but I think I will this time. God gives us FREE WILL aka he blesses us with life and it is up to us to decide how we want to live it. I am not one of these zealous religious types (I am actually getting my Masters in Finance, so I am an educated, practical woman) but come on- Do you really want to live your life thinking that nothing else is out there? that’s the most depressing thought that I can think of.

  2. Come on God, it’s over Johnny. Sometimes you can just turn it off.

  3. God has spoken? Seems like god MIGHT have pried his sweaty ass off the couch long enough to keep the little girl from being murdered in the first place. That’s some god you got there, the sum total of his righteous outrage is spent scorching trees, because keeping babies alive is too fucking much work.

    FYI…your god is a dick.

    • Jake

      It appears your God’s a weak and whiney little bitch – shows up late, and the best vengeance he can muster is shaving the bark off a tree?

      • No Mary Jane, I also didn’t throw rocks towards the north pole hoping to hit Santa Clause either. I’m sorry if others not believing in your fairy tales offends you, but even you should realize that you’ve got one fucked up god. He’s all knowing and all powerful…but still chooses to let children be murdered.

        Your god is a dick.

      • Lol, I knew you would cry about that, and you still sound like an idiot. Clarify, do you believe in this fairy tale of a God or not? You can’t pick both. My God is a dick? WTF are you talking about? I didn’t even know I had a god let alone that he was a dick. Thanks for letting me know though!
        Just so we are clear there is no all knowing and all powerful diety choosing to let children be murdered. Just psychos.

    • McFeely… you sound like an idiot. ;)
      I bet you threw stones at the sky when you were a kid. Curse you God! Why didn’t my mother love me!
      Lol, like someone is up there ignoring you, Lmao, sitting on a couch, sweaty and drinking a Budwieser.

    Sadly, Casey Anthony herself wasn’t standing at that sight, just as lightening struck. Fuckin’ timing.

  5. DogBoy

    Casey better opt for the rubber soled stripper heels.

    • Facebook Me

      I said that too, as in that will be the ONLY profession she could get into, making money without a high school diploma.

  6. Bobbi Jo

    Dude, that’s just not right.

  7. JR

    Let’s not get bent out of shape here. Central Florida is the lightning capital of the world. The odds of lightning striking lots of places there aren’t terrible, especially given how fucking flat the whole state is. It’s really a crap shoot.

    That said, given how pissed off people in Central Florida are (and the loonies who drove out there SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS) and the fairly lax gun laws in Florida, there’s also not a terrible chance Casey Anthony might get shot the fuck up.

    Consider the betting pool open.

  8. This skanky murdering bitch is not a celebrity. Stop posting about her. Start eroding her Q rating and all that other shit that will cause People to pay her $$$ for murdering her kid.

  9. “I have something to give you. I don’t want it anymore. Thirty hours of pain all at once, all for you.”

  10. grobpilot

    Why is it that, everytime something bad happens, religious people just accept it and say, “it’s God’s will”? Wouldn’t it make more sense to say that Satan is just a dickless asshole for making bad things happen? Of course, if God is omnipotent, he could have stopped it. So, why didn’t he? Unfortunately, I’ve come to the personal conclusion that we, as human beings, have absolutely no purpose to our existence other than to eventually kill ourselves off. Or maybe an Earth-sized asteroid will do it for us. So, live it up while you’re here because after you die, there ain’t shit else to look forward to.

  11. Then, why do I see rough in your eyes?

    Did anyone check if the kid was PLANKING in her burial ground? That would pist the angels that are in charge of racial equality in the heavens. There’s a special section for that.

  12. Ksurfiws

    It wasn’t murder. Just a late term abortion.

    What this really indicates is that God needs to upgrade his targeting system. God has invested a lot of PR work into his “bolt from the heavens” so I understand him not wanting to, for example, appear in front of Casey Anthony and shoot her in the cooch with a shotgun, but really whats the point of any weapon if it can’t hit the target? So come on, God, update your configuration to at least the level of a granma playing cod black ops for the first time.

  18. Venom

    I heard that lightning hit the site yesterday, I did not know if it was true or made up. If it did, then it echoes the feelings of most people about what happened.

    Fun fact, when people are dying and lying in a hospital bed or the OR, they all beg for God’s help, even the so called ones that claim they don’t believe in him.
    Most people are full of horseshit and false bravado.

    • you can pray to holy satan and it’ll have the entirely same effect. faith as a method of mind over matter is an interesting, completely misunderstood phenomenon. relilgion on the other hand is a bushleague tool of oppression. and yeah, god doesn’t exist. anyone who believes in him for any reason besides mind over matter is a primitive fool.

    • Jake

      Huh? Rational people don’t beg for God’s help in the hospital. They beg for a scientist – a doctor.

      • Venom

        My father is a surgeon.
        They beg him and they beg God.
        They beg anyone and anything they think will save them.
        Who the fuck is rational when they are sitting there looking at death with possibly little time to live?
        The ER is littered with badasses who claimed they don’t believe in God their whole life begging for his help.

        If you are lucky, you will get that chance to sit and beg God for help one day too.

      • Artofwar

        …So in your own idiotic backwards sort of way, you have just proved your detractor’s points by pretty much stating that only irrational people pray to God, because at the time their conditions are in desperate and irrational states of being and mind—-So here is the equation— x + irrationality=prayer…..Artofwar

      • “Who the fuck is rational when they are sitting there looking at death with possibly little time to live?”

    God didn’t kill Calee. He just hates those stupid memorials. Instead of wasting your time and money putting stuffed animals and flowers on a horrible site ride your ass to the Humane Society and do something for a helpless animal that needs more than a girl that’s dead and gone.

    People like mcfeely here make me laugh. Doesn’t it seem so easy to think of god as a fat dude on the couch? Doesn’t it seem easy to blame him for our issues? I personally think that casey anthony needs to be treated like a salam witch, and the lightening strike symbolizea that a punishment so hanous is out of our hands. But I’m no prophet and I’m definately far from a goddly person.

    • The Critical Crassness

      What kind of witch…did you mean Salem or salami? Because if you meant Salem, then you are no better than the rest of the “God Squad” morons, who create people like Casey Anthony with their constant harangue against all that is natural in humans….if you meant salami….you’re one sick son-of -a -bitch because the only way to treat one of them is to EAT it…….

    • No Adder, you’ve missed my point entirely. I don’t blame “god” for anything, I blame all you religious nutjobs for believing in the fairy tales that happen to 100% coincide with the culture you were born into. If you’d been born in another country, you’d have complete and utter faith in a DIFFERENT set of myths.

      All I’m doing is pointing out the rather obvious incongruity in your own beliefs. If you believe your god is all knowing and all powerful, then he chooses to let incredibly horrible things happen when he doesn’t’ have to…and that makes him a fucking asshole.

      • LOLOL

        No, it makes Him a supporter of free will, genius. If He forced us to follow and love him, it wouldn’t be real love, would it? And maybe I would believe other myths if I lived in another country. You know what the difference is between those myths and the story of Jesus? The Jesus one is real, the others are just what you call “fairy tales”

    • TomFrank

      “People like mcfeely here make me laugh”—oh wait, that wasn’t a compliment? (Seriously, I thought it was on first reading.)

      “I personally think that casey anthony needs to be treated like a salam witch”—interesting analogy, as the women and men executed in the Salem Witch Trials were innocent victims of medievalist hysteria. Or do you actually think that witchcraft is real, and all those people were practicing it? Awww…that’s so cute if you do.

      But I guess the Salem Witch Trials also represent America’s first lynch mob, so we might find out soon enough if the analogy is apt after all.

      • Guys, Adder is illiterate, stop taking her/him so seriously or they will “hanously”, and “definately” go to “Salam” and hang themselves for being so “goddly” while they “smbolizea” the proper way to show their opinion.

  22. Yello

    There is no god because only we can create the idea of his existence.

    • God

      Inarticulate specimens like yourself make me ashamed that I am an atheist.

      • Yello

        Dude get a dictionary. It’s not my fault you’re dumb.

      • no, God is right Yello, you're a moron

        To prove the nonexistence of God you used a statement for which you have no evidence, which means you’re no better than the religious idiots. You can’t prove that only humans can create imaginary deities.

      • Derp

        @God, something tells me you’re just a 16 year old kid that just thinks it’s “cool” to call himself an atheist, like the majority of window licking “atheists” on the internet.

      • Abby Normal

        @Derp, looks like you might be suffering from an irony deficiency. You really don’t find anything amusing in God claiming to be an atheist?

      • By definition, wouldn’t the Christian god be an atheist? HE doesn’t believe in a higher power after all.

    • @ Feely> Eh…technically no. Atheism is the lack of belief in god (not necessarily a higher power, although that is generally implied by the term “god”). Presumably a real god would believe in itself.

      Of course this is all moot, as there are no gods.

  23. The Critical Crassness

    Well, this seems to prove once and for all, that God is a woman. Only a woman would take out their anger about one thing by attacking something else instead of the real cause of the anger. If, God were a man…he would have leveled the whole damn family right after the verdict was rendered, not blown up some tree, which he worked hard to create. No real man destroys his own handiwork because of some dumb, drunk-assed, party bitch.

  24. Bam

    no one cares about this hillbilly and her dead hillbilly kid

  25. God is angry that Casey’s porn offer was rescinded. Striking Caylee’s memorial was the most obvious place to do it. Had he struck Casey, it would have ruined that small chance of Larry Flynt stepping up to the plate, to right this wrong. Steven Hirsch couldn’t have been struck, because there are just too many reasons to take him out. Do you people even understand religion?

  26. DD

    She’s a disgusting human being, but I feel the jurors are more to blame. They are JUST AS SICK AS HER. They all should be ashamed, ashamed of themselves. Losers.

    • The Critical Crassness

      Obviously you have no knowledge of law…they were left in a position where they could do nothing else but find her, Not guilty. It is the prosecutors who should be hung by their collective gonads for the verdict, not the jurors. They are the ones who failed to present enough hard evidence to prove, “beyond a reasonable doubt”. So quit fucking blaming a bunch of people off the street for the failure of the legal professionals.

      • Yello

        CC you’re the one who doesn’t know the law. The jury fucked up but they weren’t the only ones.

      • Lemmiwinks

        To be fair we’re talking about 12 people who were too dumb to get out of jury duty. This is the same demographic who if asked would be unable to identify the key ingredient in oatmeal.

      • The Listener

        William Blackstone, an English jurist said, “it’s better that 10 guilty men go free than one innocent man be wrongly convicted.”
        The prosecution could not provide the necessary evidence to convince a jury that Casey was guilty ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ so the jury had to find her not guilty. Everyone did their job to the best of their ability. No legal system by man is perfect. The only person who can be held accountable for the little girl’s death is whoever is directly responsible for her death.
        So people need to stop attacking the jury on the case.

      • Venom

        The 12 people that had to judge Scott Peterson had the same circumstances and evidence as these people did, the difference is they had a fucking brain and figured out he killed his wife.

      • Artofwar

        ….To Critical Obliviousness—did you even bother to watch the trial, or like so many other morons just jumped on the proverbial murder wagon towards the end???

        The only thing the prosecutors failed to show these sub-human jury members was the actual video tape of (murder-tot-mom) committing the deed.

        It is people like you that will inevitably become jurors who need to be shown actual video tapes of crimes in progress, along with singed confessions and a Presidential decrees, before you can find a murderous whore guilty.

        But better yet, here is a scenario no one has mentioned—if this had been a man on trial for the same crime, instead of what some may find to be–a cute young white bitch–would the verdict have been the same???

        The American jury is picked from what else– the American imbecilic jury pool, thus verdicts as this one are common. The human jury system should be eradicated. The American collective has become so dumbed down, way past the point where any should be trusted with such dire decision making processes….Artofwar

      • Hey Hick Fuck You

        Spot on. The prosecution failed, point blank. Sure, in my opinion the bitch should be stripped of her skin and rubbed in salt for killing her kid, but since the sky god doesn’t exist, it won’t happen. Don’t give me the whole “sign” shit either. Just check out the old testament. Now THAT was a hands on god. The jurors didn’t do anything wrong (I heard a restaurant owner wouldn’t let them into his place), they heard the evidence, and made their decision based on the this evidence. Leave them alone and drive on.

      • JackHackett


        Feck off ya Gobshite.

      • I am almost done with school to be a court reporter… I wish that I would have been present for this shit so I could actually know the real details…. I also have a 20 mo old daughter…. I can honestly say that if she was missing for 2 minutes I would shit my pants and go NUTS, like, kill a motherfucker nuts,….. uhmmm….. not party…..
        just that ALONE is enough to make me want to vomit on this bitch. I don’t care if she didn’t kill her, I don’t care if she didn’t realize someone killed her, if my daughter tripped and stubbed her toe I would feel like a failure.

      • Dammit, I got sidetracked.
        Talking about the jury, normal people do NOT want jury duty. Who wants to serve that shit for practically no money while paying for babysitting/ missing work/ being sober. They were hand picked to be the most easily influenced people that didn’t come up with something to avoid their “civic duty”. God bless the system… oh wait.. god…. that’s what started this whole argument! Thank goodness for such a flawed system but fuck it! She will live like a social leper and I prefer that then getting my hand cut off for that one time I stole gum… (which I feel horrible for,,,)

    Not all religious people assign EVERY event as a sign from God. Many realize that lightning striking a tree near the memorial is just a random event.

      Your double standards suck, and so do you. Hopefully nobody you’re around trust you as far as they can fucking throw you.

      • hahaha what an asshole. YOU are worse, bitching about someone bitching about bitching. I like how people get so mad when someone is like “cool it retards.” I mean, d’uh, it’s a lost cause but you really do need to get off the internet and not get all crazy when someone makes a comment pointing out how stupid you are. No averre, wow didn’t reply to a comment you made so I am not referring specifically to you. I mean in general. That’s what makes this site so entertaining, when people start crying that someone disagreed or has a different point of view. How dare you degrade my lifestyle!!!!!! :P :p

    I feel sorry for all of you that do not believe in God. God can not control our decisions and actions – if he did we would live in a Utopian Society and there would be no need for eternal life in Heaven. God gave us a gift – it is called free will. We were given the opportunity to make our own decisions and act upon them; whether in good faith or not. I do not know what happened to dear Caylee Anthony, but I do know she is at rest at her rightful home with her Father that loves her more than anyone can imagine. We must all remember that this is our temporary home preparing us for eternity in Heaven. It is soley our decisions and actions that determine our fate. I understand that many do not believe in God – but it’s time to put faith and trust into something powerful and worthwhile.

    That area has the highest rate of lightning strikes in the US. God and angels had nothing to do with it – it was atmospheric physics and coincidence.

  47. Yvette

    Bam – Please do not refer to the child as a “dead trash kid”. She had a name, Caylee. She was born innocent, pure, and free – just like we all were. Caylee is not to be blamed for the choices her family made. She deserved the right to be loved as a child…not neglected, beaten, drugged, and abused. Think about this for a minute: Caylee was a child that did not ask for such cruel punishment. She was an innocent being who knew a short life of cruel abuse. She trusted her family to protect and love her; not to hurt and neglect her. After everything she has gone through, do you honetly feel she deserves to be called a “dead trash kid”??? I understand that I did not know Caylee – but I happen to have children, neices and nephews. And I choose to mourn her death as I would if this tragic incident would have happened to any other stranger. So please, all of you, stop with the hateful and hurtful comments. Put yourself in Caylee’s shoes…imagine if it happened to someone you know. Have respect for Caylee because she experienced such a tragic fate that none of us can even begin to imagine.

  48. yenjvoy

    I’d say if there were a God, and if he were really pissed off, wouldn’t he strike the bitch down with lightning instead of shooting up like an impotent bitch the place where the little girl was found? Credulous people think everything is a sign.

  49. Idiot ppl

    Not yall r crazy dont vlame GOD for this we serveqq a mighty GOD he gives ppl choices and u know what caylee is loving being in his arms today I cant believe u allow comments like tgis on here ill PRAY for u all

  50. mannequin

    I don’t know… I find this post to be just as deprecating as the statement that God struck that tree with a dose of lightning. To have an opinion is one thing, to bash another’s is reprehensible.
