MOORE, Oklahoma -- The owner of The Moore Liquor Store is disgusted with the Casey Anthony verdict and wants everyone to know.

He put up a sign minutes after the jury reached its decision. His opinion is certainly the talk of the town, but you don't have to drive to Moore to see it.

Pictures of the marquis with profane language are all over the internet. The sign makes drivers do double take: Sell to a minor in OK- Jail. Kill one in FL, No problem not guilty.

The owner the store, Bryan Kerr says his commentary is no different from thousands spouting their opinions online.

"I don't get mad very often, but it does seem like the Florida justice system failed in this case and I think my feelings express what the majority of Oklahomans feel about this and probably Americans," Bryan Kerr said.

A jury of seven women and five men believe Casey Anthony is guilty of lying to the court but after 33 days in court and 11 hours of deliberation they found Anthony not guilty of killing her two-year old daughter Caylee, something Kerr calls an outrage.

His customers have a lot to say about the colorful commentary.

"He is going to say what he is going to say and he is fully within his right to. It's sad thing about the Casey Anthony trial," one customer said.

"I think its wrong. I think he should changed it, nobody should come by and read that. I mean I understand the case and it was wrong to not go against her. I do believe she did it she did it but don't put that. People read that, Christians read that," Lesly Flood said.

"For every comment I get like that, I get ten more that say I agree with you or way to go I'm glad I shop there. So solely in a matter of economics it works out," Kerr said.

He is not the only one displaying grief. People across the country are turning on their porch lights in memory of Caylee Marie Anthony. More than 270,000 people are shining those lights, which will remain on until 6 o'clock Wednesday morning.
