ORLANDO, Fla. - A massive lightning and thunder storm rolled through Orlando on the eve of Casey Anthony's release, but it didn't stop protestors from staking out the Orange County Jail.
"We're going to stay out here. We don't care if it's raining, where the thunder is, we're out here," said Lori Richards.
Around 9pm, the crowd numbered about 20 people. By the time midnight rolled around, a couple hundred lined both sides of John Young Parkway, the road outside the jail.
The majority think Anthony murdered her child, Caylee, despite the verdict.
Susan Hoch-Caplan drove from Pinellas County to protest Anthony's release, saying she's embarrassed by the decision made by a jury from her hometown.
"This killer is getting out. She had a jury trial that was a bunch of jokes. A six-year-old would've made a more conscious decision that what they actually did," Hoch-Caplan said.
Not everyone agrees.
David Antolic stood among the "Justice for Caylee" signs with his own sign that read, "She's not guilty, get over it."
"People need to respect the judicial system and respect due process and just let her and her family live their lives," Antolic said.
Still, most people outside the jail Saturday night seemed to have no doubt of Anthony's guilt, and made it very clear when she walked out of jail. Crowds screamed "murderer!" and "baby killer!" as Anthony walked to a gold SUV with attorney, Jose Baez, by her side.
Analysts wonder what the future holds for the infamous mother, some claiming she'll make millions in book deals and interviews, while others argue she'll be hard-pressed to do something as simple as find a place to live, given public outrage over the trial.
However, one man standing amid the crowd of protestors held a sign with an option he hopes Anthony will consider.
Tim Allen's cardboard read, "Marry me, Casey."
"She deserves a new family, one that's not dysfunctional and I can give her a better family," he said.
