I've been watching the Casey Anthony hearing when I thought of something.
The whole thing is being watched Nationwide - maybe worldwide - and is televised daily. They're saying for maybe 10 weeks this is going to drag
Who's footing the bill? The tax payers of Florida.
Well, movies will often get funding from companies for stategic product placement. We all know this and I shouldn't have to expand upon it.
My point being is that several companies and products are being plugged almost daily from this trial. What if the following companies helped alleviate
the burden on the tax payers and helped foot the bill?

Well, the companies who are getting plugged by no fault of their own and out of their control, could alleviate some of the pressure on the tax payer
and maybe throw some money towards the Justice System and Joe Tax Payer and help fund this long, drawn out trial.
I know this may seem a bit ridiculous, but seriously. Think about it. Even if they threw in $100 every time their product was mentioned. They're
going to be making four times that from all this anyways. Why not help out Joe and Jane Tax Payer?
I'm interested in your thoughts about this because you know that these products will also be used in the movie, too. More money for them while the
struggling tax payers are still paying off this circus.
I'm not saying that these companies should have the responsibility of paying for her defense. Hell, I don't want to be paying for this pathological
liar's defense, but the burden does fall on the citizens of Florida.
In this day and age where everything is placed into the public eye, maybe we need to start thinking about who is getting endorsed and where the money
