Legislators Consider Caylee's Law, Crime Bills

ORLANDO, FL 12/26/2011 -- One of the proposals is Florida's version of Caylee's Law, which have sprung up in more than a dozen states since Casey Anthony was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, in July.

The proposed legislation would make it a felony if parents and guardians don't tell authorities when a child is missing or dead within a certain period. Some legal experts and law enforcement officials say the law reaches too far, however.

Lawmakers also will be looking at tweaking Florida's drug law, examining ways to keep juvenile offenders out of detention and helping inmates avoid returning to crime after being released.

    Just make as clean and clear a list of rep.'s that won't support this bill. There's something seriously wrong with a bunch of punks voted-in for two years, that cannot make-up their minds if they want to support "open borders," or perhaps "...don't report this for thirty one days!" I heard another good one today on my way back to Florida: "The U.S.A. will not admonish The P.R.C. for manipulating their currency." That's right folks, you can get HiDef DVD recrders/player for $109.00, and cell phones for $.001, but they are not dumping. Next time they want a favor from you, do one for America and vote against these. It works, I promise you(Boyd). Thanx.

    We do not need more laws, we already have laws that cover these situations. Less regulation is what is wanted not more Bad ideas
