A Wisconsin version of Caylee's Law is being introduced in the state Legislature. It's a great move.
First, some background.

Nathan Lezniewicz, a 25-year-old man….testified that he never saw Anthony upset or depressed and he mentioned a trip to a nightclub on June 20, 2008, at which Anthony participated in a ‘hot body contest’ during a nightclub promotion.

Such legislation is needed to prevent future travesties of justice from clueless juries like the one in the Anthony trial (OMG, we would have loved to come back with a guilty verdict, but you know we just couldn’t see it after 400 pieces of evidence). Good grief, were they all TSA workers?
Someone would surely come forward in
The idiot jury in
In Wisconsin, it is not a crime to refuse to inform authorities of knowledge of a missing child. That must change.
