“Calm down … This is getting to the point of danger. Vigilantly justice is not OK. You don’t take the law into your own hands.” — Dr. Drew Pinsky
“Everybody needs to turn the energy that they have into something positive. If you want to do something to honor Caylee, then do something to help other children.

ORLANDO, Fla, (July 7, 2011) — TV lawyers are not real journalists. They do not have the training a reporter has, and by the very nature of their job, they cannot be objective. And while local news stations are doing their part to bring unbiased news to the public, HLN and its non-journalist lawyers continue to broadcast stories and views that are so one-sided, they are beginning to create a very dangerous situation in Orlando.
