The long-anticipated Casey Anthony jailhouse video -- which was deemed too "inflammatory" to be released before her trial was over -- has finally been released by the Orange County State Attorney's Office.

Now, this highly controversial tape shows Anthony hearing reports that the remains of her daughter, Caylee, had been found and the reaction that was held back from the public over fears it would impede her right to a fair trial.

What exactly is so "inflammatory" about the video -- which you can find after the jump -- is a little hard to decipher.

In the convenience-store-quality footage -- which doesn't include audio -- you can see Anthony put her head down and rock back and forth for a bit.

Then she sits there and appears to breathe heavily before going back to the rocking motions.

Regardless, here's the video, which was apparently too hot for the public to handle:
