Casey Anthony Case: Guilty until proven innocent

The jurors for the Casey Anthony trial said "Not Guilty," but all who followed the case know she's guilty as sin...

As a longtime resident of Orlando it truly frustrates me that after three years Casey Anthony has still not been tried for her crime. It's not like she's a celebrity such as OJ Simpson! Sure they are in jury deliberations at the moment but that's turning into a circus. How can anyone honestly say that they can be an impartial juror? Seriously, what cave have they been dwelling in for the past 3 years?

The taxpayers are paying for her trial, room and board and I for one have had enough. I'd rather use the money wisely such as for new SEWER systems. It seems like it was just yesterday that the news broke in Orlando about Caylee Anthony being missing. It didn't take long for all the lies from Casey to begin. Within days the angered protesters began picketing in front of the Anthony family home....yelling and screaming profanities at George and Cindy.

It was total humiliation for the folks of Orlando. We among millions of other caring people worldwide yearned for Caylee's safe return.

On one hand you have a selfish, self-centered young "mother" who only wanted to party. On the other hand were the Grandparents. I felt for the grandparents. I imagined myself being in that horrible dilemma and I would never have allowed that spectacle to happen. Yes I know we can't say what we'll do unless we walk in someones shoes BUT I beg to differ in this situation. Being a grandmother made it really hit home for me. I felt their pain, anguish and confusion. On one hand their precious granddaughter, who they worshipped with all their heart is missing. On the other hand their daughter, was being questioned for Caylee's disappearance.

The drama began to unfold when Cindy Anthony phoned the police to report her granddaughter missing. Then she reported that the car smelled like a dead body was in there! It was at this time that she realized she placed her foot in her mouth. Then the lies began for both George and Cindy. One after another. Constantly misleading the detectives on the case. Cindy, George, Casey and Lee told so many lies I didn't know how they kept them straight! My head was spinning from all the lies they attempted to get away with.

We never gave up hope that "maybe" the nanny really did kidnap Caylee. That all changed and our hearts were broken when her body was found tossed in the woods like a piece of trash. No child should ever be treated so horribly. It takes a cold hearted, mean spirited person to do something so callous.

It's true we shouldn't judge one another. WELL when you have the facts right in front of you it's difficult not to! Innocent until proven guilty should have an additional clause that exempts common sense cases. The time will come when she will pay the price for what was done. How she can sit in the courtroom during the hours of juror selection truly baffles me. She must have numbed her brain to any feeling of emotion whatsoever. How she has kept quiet about the truth for this long is inhumane. I believe justice will be served, if not by the judicial system then by a higher power.

DISCLAIMER: This is my opinion. If for some insane reason Casey is found not guilty I WILL NOT apologize to her. I will still consider her a selfish, spoiled "mother" who needs a good ass-whooping!!!


It's been one week since the Casey Anthony trial has began. In a nutshell it's a circus and Jose Baez is tossing peanuts to the jurors. His defense tactics are a huge failure. He's attempting to place the blame on Caylee's grandparents George and Cindy Anthony. In my opinion it's not working. His inadequacies as a defense attorney are being proven to the jurors and the viewers on a daily basis. Casey is guilty but even a guilty person deserves a good defense team. The lack of remorse on Casey's behalf completely baffles me.

How could anyone be as cruel as she is and continue to torture your parents who have done so much for you? I have a strong feeling that Jose is going to try for an insanity plea but that will NOT work. She's obviously far from insane. There is no cop-out plea for a habitual liar except life in prison with no chance of parole or the death penalty. Even if Caylee's untimely death was purely by accident and not intentional she should have come clean from the start.

And the EMMY goes to Casey Anthony

UPDATE: June 9, 2011: Oh Casey were the court proceedings really so awful for you today that the trial had to come to an abrupt ending? Are you truly sick or are you suffering from consciousness of guilt? Was that trip to Puerto Rico that you wanted to take with your friends REALLY more important than your daughter? Was taking your daughters life really worth it? Cindy couldn't babysit but couldn't you ask someone else instead of killing your daughter?

Do you realize how many lives you effected with your act of selfishness? Whatever ailments are effecting you today are nothing compared to what will effect you for the rest of your life. Why not just admit your wrongdoing and end your suffering now. How can you just sit there and listen to day after day of testimony and not show any emotion unless it pertains to yourself?

I'm actually feeling a bit sorry for you and because of that I'm not liking myself right now. You don't deserve my empathy and I will get over it very quickly. You need to come forward and end this circus. Do it for your parents and brother who will never recover from this horrendous act of horror that you've brought into their lives. Reality has slapped you in the face. It's not going to get any easier. Do it Casey, do it now. Admit the truth. Unleash the beast.

And the drama continues...

UPDATE: June 11, 2011 Seriously Casey you had your daughter's body in your cars trunk for 3-5 days before you callously disposed of her body in the woods! During this time you had friends in your car as you drove around and partied. Unbelievable how you could just sit at the defense table while the expert witness expressed these facts and you were emotionless. What planet did you come from? What planet are you from? You simply disgust me.

Not Guilty?

Update 6-27-11 Casey did you seriously think you would be declared incompetent. Three, yes THREE medical professionals declared you competent. We all saw your facial expression, you know the one you gave to Mason....the look of death....but when you remembered the cameras were watching you, you regained your composure and went straight back to the blank stare. Ugh what planet are you from? You are competent! You can NOT plead insanity! You knew what you were doing when you did it and YOU must pay the price.
Update 7-5-11 Today is Day 2 of deliberations. Casey you look very tired and upset. I'm beginning to feel pangs of empathy for you again BUT as usual I'm sure they will pass. Why did you allow this situation to get to this point. I wish you would have taken a different route three years ago. Your family is suffering so much, it breaks my heart. I know deep down you feel some guilt but you won't admit to it now or maybe ever.
You are the most detested woman in this country right now. I bet you never thought you would be so popular is such a negative way. Who ever thought that July 4th, 2011 most of the country would spend waiting to hear if your verdict would be read. I wish you luck are a human being and you do feel emotions, you must be so lonely on your planet. I don't wish the death penalty for you. I do wish you would just confess your mistake.
Your daughter was a beautiful child who was so loved and deserved so much more. Her untimely death didn't need to turn into such a circus. It's so disrespectful. When I watch my 4 year old granddaughter play basketball with her YMCA team....I see Caylee in their faces and it's so bittersweet. It's so very sad. Free yourself Casey from within.

VERDICT: NOT GUILTY? Come on Casey even you don't believe that, do you?

Casey Anthony Trial and Legal Jargon Story

The Jury Is In.....

Recently I was ACCUSED of being mean and it momentarily stopped me in my tracks. I am all for FREEDOM of speech and for not being a JUDGE to another's opinion. I believe we all have a voice that needs to be heard and we all have something to say. I would not PROSECUTE one person's opinion or point of view because we are all unique. I have no problem with negative feedback and I'm not attempting to DEFEND myself. I do have a problem with someone referring to me as a mean person. I can call in many EXPERTS who could ARGUE this CASE on my behalf.

I've written a few blogs regarding the Casey Anthony TRIAL Of The Decade. These articles are for entertainment and educational purposes only. Not that I'm a LEGAL EXPERT but as previously stated I am a John Grisham fan. I didn't expect a SIDEBAR and a need to explain myself. Readers of my articles can TESTIFY for that fact.

Some of my writings include group participation and have many comments and opinions. Never did it enter my thoughts that I was disrespecting Caylee's memory. She was a child who was born to a selfish mother. Any woman can have a baby but it takes a real woman to be a mother and I have many WITNESSES to attest to that.

I intentionally avoided including any wording or context that had to do with Caylee's MURDER. As a mother and grandmother I could not imagine this traumatic event occuring in my life. My heart aches for Cindy, George, Lee and Caylee. Not for Casey, at all. She sits at the DEFENSE table with her smug expression like she's the VICTIM but we all know the facts and hopefully the JURY sees through the abundance of lies.

We all know this trial is about Justice For Caylee. We all react differently and that's not against the LAW or reason for a LAWSUIT. We express our emotions in the way we are accustomed. We might express anger and yell at our TV's or whichever item of technology we are using to keep updated. We might find solace within a group of peers with laughter. Yes laughter does temporarily ease the pain but we never forget what brought us together and we still feel sadness for Caylee.

I am opinionated, I like to share my thoughts and emotions. I like to laugh and since when is that a CRIME? I believe it's good for the soul. I know when and where to draw the line. I won't go into DELIBERATIONS for my opinions. I appreciate all points of view. There will be no need for an APPEAL! I have since then taken a RECESS, dusted myself off and I am now back on track again.

I have considered PLEADING INSANITY due to some of the TESTIMONY of the DEFENSE but I've come this far I plan on sticking around until the GUILTY VERDICT is read.
UPDATE: Verdict was shockingly Not Guilty which doesn't mean Innocent! Very sad day for many thousands of people. Justice For Caylee will come in due time.

Negative Comment:
If you could see that poor little girls body in the trunk and smell the decomposition would you still be addicted? You're making her death into entertainment, that's sick.

My Response:
We are in no way at all disrespecting the memory of Caylee. We are in no way making her untimely death entertainment. Casey Anthony has taken care of that for all of us. If she would have come forward 3 years ago this circus of a trial with it's ringleader Jose Baez would not be going on and the world wouldn't be aware of the dysfunctional Anthony family. We are addicts because the defense team and Casey has brought us to this point. We are all heartbroken over Caylee's death. We want Justice For Caylee and in the meanwhile we will continue to bash her murdering mother and her bozo lawyer.

Casey Anthony: What will she do now? A new look?

This article was written when Casey Anthony was released from jail. She's now released from probation...

Back by popular demand another Casey Anthony article. We all could use a bit of humor while going through withdrawals of the Circus Trial Of The Decade. Now that Casey Anthony has her freedom most of are wondering, what she will do next?

Some of us couldn't care less. We all want to put this travesty behind us and move on and wait for karma to take the reins.
In the meantime I've compiled some suggestions as to what Casey could do next.

Feel free to add your suggestions or recommendations in the comment section.

Visit Jaron van der Sloot and convince him to tell her what really happened to Natalie Holloway. After leaving Joran she could make a pit stop by OJ's cell and find out the truth about Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. They are three of a kind, maybe they could swap confession stories. She could also possibly get advice as to avoid karma trailing behind her.

Ask for Tony's phone number and actually get it this time. All I can say to this is RUN! TONY! RUN!

Shop for an assortment of ruffled blouses with collars since they obviously bring her luck.

Deactivate her My Space account and join Facebook. Twitter only allows 140 characters which would be a struggle for her with all her lies. Forget about Google+ they probably have her blocked from receiving invites.

Read my blogs that I wrote in her honor.

Apply for a job at Universal Studios since she already basically knows the layout of the park.

Take a spelling class so the next time she performs searches she'll find the correct word the first time around.

She'll need a new tattoo to celebrate her new BEAUTIFUL LIFE. Hmmmm. "Cash cow" is an option since that's all you are to your legal team.

Get fixed?!?!? Enough said.

Purchase a new eyeliner, possibly Avon Glimmersticks....feel free to shop my website!

Enter as many hot body contests as possible in order to make money to purchase those eyeliners.

Open up her own checking account (stealing is a crime Casey) even worse is stealing from your friends and family.

Try NOT TO LIE. Anything is possible (remember the verdict). She could imagine herself as pinocchio and every time she lies her nose will grow, just a suggestion but it might help.

Sign up for an acting class JUST IN CASE you should ever see a courtroom again. We saw right through your facial expressions during the trial even though the Pinellas 12 might not have.

If she should come across any money...WHICH by the way whoever pays her for a story is pond scum......I suggest taking the jurors on a cruise. I think they earned a nice treat.

To earn some extra cash you could play Monopoly and bet the other players that you will get the "Get Out Of Jail Free" card each time you play...cha ching, she'll be rolling in the cash!

I hear the circus is always looking for a new act....Bozo can join you!

Heads up: Stay AWAY from Nancy Grace! On second thought invite her on the juror cruise also, you two might get along or go overboard....just a thought.

Disclaimer: I along with my readers plead the fifth should CA get into a jam while attempting any suggestions offered in this article.

Top 10 Reasons Jose Baez Annoyed Us

The majority of us were fascinated with the Casey Anthony Trial Of The Decade. We were interested in what move the prosecution or defense will make next. Most importantly we want Justice For Caylee.

We were mostly intrigued with the Defense Attorney, Jose Baez. He confused us and made us wonder as to what his next move would be. We were in awe of some of the questions he asked the witnesses and how he could confuse himself enough to strike his own question.

I've begun to wonder as to whether he was playing us, but that would be giving him to much credit. He was doing his job as a Defense Attorney....he was defending his client.

Granted we all know Casey Anthony was guilty as sin, but seriously if she actually paid for her defense she should demand a REFUND. We all have our points of view and opinions regarding this trial.

I asked ten trial follower friends of mine for their opinions on what intrigued them about Jose Baez.
Feel free to add your opinion below. Who knows maybe Jose will read this and learn something new. In the meanwhile let's all hope justice prevails and the jurors do right by Caylee.

UPDATE: You didn't win. Justice For Caylee was not served!

Top Ten Reasons .....

10. He intrigues me because he took on a capital murder case with no experience whatsoever, now he has to put taxpayers money where his mouth is! - plumloco415(R.I.P. Gangsta Granny)

9. I'm amazed at how he can blatanly lie and seem to convince himself that what he's implying is actually the truth! I wonder if his planet will allow him to return OR will they say "No Way Jose" stay where you are!?!? - TrialNut

8. Baez does not intrigue me at all other than his stupidity. - Kat

7. All I can think of was the little old lady asking "where's the beef?" while Baez was asking the defense witness "where's the blood!" Jose, since when is there blood with a drowning? - SUE P.

6. In my opinion Jose Baez couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag with or without a sidebar! -Jane

5. Jose intrigues me because: He messes up so much I have to watch to see what neandrathal thing he will do next! I have to watch because I have to see how many times he pronounces peoples names wrong, how many times he asks for sidebars, how he treats people on the stand, how many times he asks Judge, can I just have a minute? and I could go on and on! He intrigues me because I can't wait to see what stupid thing he will do next! - Chris

4. I feel he was transparent from the start of the trial. I find him amusing since he's always flustered and not sure what to do next. - Mich

3. I'm interested in what his thinking process is OR if he even has one. Does he even think before he speaks? - Dave

2. I don't put it past him to blame himself for the crime just to win the case! - Silvia

1. His holier than thou attitude intrigues me. He really thinks he knows it all and has this case in his back pocket. His childish demeanor is an embarassment to our legal system. His cocky attitude to Judge Perry is very unprofessional. For the life of me I don't know how JP hasn't tossed his gavel at him yet! Could JB possibly be that clueless and really think he has a chance of winning? - Sunshine
