Anyone trying to gauge the outrage over the Casey Anthony verdict need look no further than Sammay Blackwell, an Oklahoma woman who was violently attacked for bearing a resemblance to Caylee Anthony's mother.
Blackwell said she was driving away from the convenience store where she worked when a woman driving a van intentionally rammed her car, causing it to flip over two and a half times. Blackwell, terrified, decided to play dead.
She said that I was trying to hurt babies, I was killing babies and she was going to stop it before it happened again, Blackwell said.
Police arrested the driver, Shireen Nalley, on suspicion of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Nalley told the police that she was trying to save the children. In a bizarre twist, Blackwell's daughter is also named Caylee.
The incident lends credence to Anthony's lawyer worrying about his client's safety once she is released from jail. Anthony's parents went into hiding after their daughter's not guilty verdict led them to receive death threats, and a Pennsylvania man who is also named Casey Anthony reported receiving menacing Facebook messages.
