Casey Anthony is a free woman! She strolled out of her Florida jail shortly after midnight this morning. When she stepped outside, she was greeted with a large crowd of people who screamed at her. I’m definitely upset by the whole situation, but I don’t know if I’m upset enough that I’d camp outside waiting for her to show her face – only to scream at her. I – like almost all of you – feel like she got a way with murder, but I believe she’s in for a rough ride. (We can only hope, right?)
According to sources, Casey quickly hopped onto a plane and headed for Columbus, OH, where Casey has family.
The Columbus PD tells TMZ … they have a Special Duty program, which allows people in their fine city to hire off duty cops for protection, and that’s what Casey would have to do if she wants someone to guard her from the angry mob.
We’re told, however, if there is a specific, real threat … the PD would treat her the way they would anyone else and provide appropriate protection, without cost.
It may well be that Casey did not get on the Ohio-bound jet this AM (an airport official says the plane was carrying golfers) but the drill will be the same pretty much anywhere she goes — if there’s a real threat, cops will provide protection … whether they think she killed her child or not.
