After watching the Defense’s opening statement in the Casey Anthony case, What ever happened to Personal Responsibility? Too many people use excuses to try to get out of paying the price for their crimes or mistakes. Just because you had a bad childhood, were abused, your parents didn’t treat you right, or any other number or excuses, that’s no reason to not be punished. Just man up and admit your mistakes. Cover ups usually get you in more trouble then the original action. There are lots of people who have had bad things happen to them and don’t use it as a crutch!
