Late Wednesday night, protesters took their invasion to a new low, launching coins and rocks at the Anthonys' windows and then trespassing to bang on the door.

Protesters Talk | Deputies
As her parents walked outside with a bat, Cindy Anthony and Casey Anthony both called 911 with obvious concern about the physical danger (listen to calls).
"I don't know if there's weapons. I know that my father is outside and so is my mother. So please send as many people as you possibly can," Casey told the dispatcher.
One female protester tried encouraging a fight by pulling George Antony by his shirt. The protesters admit to taunting and provoking the family in the middle of the night.
"I think it's starting to work. He said for himself it's breaking his family apart. So hopefully it breaks them all down," protester Miriah Bounds told Eyewitness News.
Late Thursday morning, George Anthony released the following statement to Eyewitness News asking for help identifying the protesters: "Community Help: September 18, 2008 -- The Anthony Family asks all Central Florida residents and Friends to help identify all person(s) involved in the incidents that occurred in the early Morning hours of Sept. 18, 2008. Please contact The Orange County Sheriff Dept., the local FBI office, the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement, also call my personal Cell # 407-403-3564 with this info. I appreciate your Help. The person(s) involved will be arrested And prosecuted to the fullest extent Of Florida Law. -- George Anthony" (see statement)
Sheriff's deputies said they're doing all the law allows to keep neighbors safe and to give protestors their constitutional rights.
"All we can do is enforce the law. And I can tell you our folks are frustrated. I can tell you our folks are very, very concerned about the security and safety of that neighborhood," said Jim Solomons, Orange County Sheriff's Office.
The attorney for the homeowners' association thinks much of the blame goes to the protesters themselves.
"It just shows me that these protestors are not out here for First Amendment rights. They're just here to cause a confrontation," HOA attorney Karen Wonsetler told Eyewitness News.
I know all of us look at this story and wonder how Casey Anthony's parents are still standing by her but, at the end of the day it is still there daughter. I know myself, I have three children of my own and if anything like this ever happened I would probably have to say I would say, that my child could never do this. Anyways these protestors are terrible. I mean if Casey lived alone and these people were doing this I would say that BITCH deserves it, but her family? Come on seriously these protestors well, most of these protestors are just fucking morbid. There was one protestor that had a poster board of a tomb stone with missing Caylee's name of it! These people are going to far. Imagine George and Cindy having to wake up and goto sleep every night hearing these people scream shit! Hey, I do not feel bad at all for Casey it is sad that this bitch will not even give her daughter, her own flesh in blood the decency to be laid to rest and have a proper burial. No, I don't think Casey is fucking insane like most do. She is just putting on a big show because she knows they have no real evidence to charge her on, and as long as they don't she is going to keep this show up! But, as for her family, Nah they7 do not deserve this. Maybe these people are not doing the right thing from the way we look at it but, I do not know what I would do in their shoes either. I am sure they whole heartily beleive that missing Caylee is not alive but they have that little hope that she is and who are we to take that away from them and torture them daily for it? These protestors are fucking crazy themselves. Most of them are screamimg to Cindy and George like for what reason? Why because they are not out searching for her? Well, I know if people were out my door everyday and night screaming obsenities and throwing stuff, and sending death threats I would be the same way, I would not leave that house either. At least at their house they know the place is under survelliance so they are safe and they also know there are plenty of people looking for missing Caylee it does not mean they don't care or still want to find her. I cannot believe that these protestors are being allowed to stand outside saying and doing these awful things and they say it is Casey that is fucking sick? Yeah it is these people as well. People are having little children stand outside with posters outside the Anthony home what type of people would subject their little innocent children to be doing these things crazy.
