Columbus Cops: We'll Protect Casey ... For a Price

7/17/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony may be in Columbus, OH this AM, and if she is ... she can get police protection, but it's going to cost her.

0717_casey_anthony_getty_ex
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.

You guys are pathetic. This woman was found INNOCENT of the charges, whether or not you get behind that or not is the difference between a 1st world country and a 3rd.

ACCEPT it, move on.
I'd love to see one of you get charged for a crime that you were innocent of and then cry like little babies when people hate you for the rest of your life.

SHE WAS FOUND INNOCENT.
ACT LIKE IT.

I say let what happens to her happen. She doesn't deserve police protection. Who protected that baby girl from her evil? Why does she deserve more than her innocent baby did? Just because she was found not guilty doesn't mean she was found innocent.

Ohio is pretty close to my state. She better avoid my state at all costs. We're not nice to baby killers here.

We need a hero to find her, kill her and reap the love and admiration of a nation. She can only hide for so long. lol

Karma will get her. Very, very soon.

Wow I really am disappointed. Bottom line is she was found not guilty. This is still America....Her life is ruined and I am sure she is receiving plenty of death threats. The cops know this...if they don't give her protection then they are basically signing her death warrant...isn't that murder too?

She can afford it, thanks to pending lucrative endorsement deals:

And book rights, and movie rights, and "how-to" matricide workshops, and...

was OJ offered protection after his trial? NO! Why should this b.tch get any? If she does she should have to pay for it (but she'll probably use her only viable option to cover the cost...that wud be her Vagina). You know she'll be out clubbing tonight and will probably end up preggers within the year. Once a whore always a whore.

HEY KILLER - you're one of the MOST HATED PEOPLE IN AMERICA, no matter where you go people WILL KNOW exact who AND WHAT you are.

If this is true, the citizens of Columbus, Ohio should be all be wearing paper bags over their heads in shame, for their city and state accepting this lying, heartless killer.
She, her disgusting lawyers, and the brain-dead jury, should be forced to live on an uninhabited island near the south pole.

Please update your Moniker to JUSTBRAINDEAD....she was found NOT GUILTY...that is VERY different the innocent. Her own parents released a statement (thru their attorney) saying they too questioned her "innocence".

You should do your homework before commenting cuz right now, you just look stupid

Where can she go? The whole world knows about her and what she did.

In order to live a normal life she would have to get plastic surgery and get her fingerprints filed off in order to keep people from finding out who she really is in years to come.

She cannot be protected 24/7. She will eventually feel safe and venture out. All will take care of itself.
