As many of you already know, if you don’t want to use email, you can send tips to Above the Law by text message. The number to use is 646-820-TIPS (or 646-820-8477).

That number, which is hooked up to our Google Voice account, also accepts voice mails. We strongly prefer text-based tips, via email or text message, over voicemail tips (which require us to listen and transcribe). But you can leave us voicemails if you like.

In the wake of the Casey Anthony verdict, one reader left us a, um, very interesting voice-mail. Check it out — it’s under 10 seconds….

Please note that we wouldn’t normally post a voicemail directly to the site, out of respect for the confidentiality of our source. But when you listen to this extremely brief voicemail — left anonymously, by someone we suspect is not a regular reader of ATL, but who presumably wants her message to be heard by as many people as possible — we think you’ll understand why we viewed it as an exception to our rule, and as fair game for posting:

Blinding rage against Casey Anthony, whom many blame for the tragic death of her daughter Caylee Anthony, is understandable. But we would refer this “tipster” to Gandalf’s sage advice: “Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
