Posts Tagged ‘CASEY ANTHONY TRIAL’

     Today will be the 21st day of  the trial that will decide if Casey Anthony lives or dies. As my fellow bloggers know, I have not written near as much as I used to due to some medical issues, but I haven’t missed a thing during my absence.

    The first day of opening statements by the State were mostly what I had expected. A play by play of every day Casey had been “looking” for her child. The description of poor little Caylees remains when found to this day brings tears to my eyes. When the State was finished, all 31 days had been accounted for, every lie had been exposed, and as far as I am concerned, at that point the trial could have been over and the sentencing phase could have begun. However we have this “innocent until proven guilty thing going on in our country and so the defense must have their turn.

     For three years we have heard Jose Baez say that we will all understand once this case went to trial. The 31 days would be explained & every question would be answered. As the trial drew near we all heard that in the first minutes of the trial we would not only understand everything but find out that Casey was truly innocent.

     I expected everyone in the family to be thrown under the bus. What I didn’t expect was to hear Jose Baez say that Caylee died in the swimming pool on June 16th and immediately tie George Anthony to the reason Casey could act normal for 31 days.

     My problem with that theory is this:

  •  If in fact George Anthony molested Casey from the time she was eight years old, was the one who found Caylee in the swimming pool, and was the one who instructed Casey to leave, then why was she on the jail house tapes (when alone with her father at the visit) telling him he had “been” {shows past tense} the best father and grandfather?

  • While Baez stated that George Anthony said “LOOK WHAT YOU DID! YOUR MOTHER WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU FOR THIS!”  What he didn’t explain was what George said and did following that statement. He alluded to alot of things such as trying to connect Kronk and George, or the fact that Casey could lie so well because she had learned to do so early on by disgustingly describing an 8 year old little girl with her fathers penis in her mouth before going to school.

  • The biggest issue now is: The only people who are involved in the claims of sexual abuse and the drowning are George and Casey. Therefore, Casey will need to take the stand in order to make her story even halfway believable to the jury. (After both grandparents testimony I would have a hard time believing her story)

     MY THOUGHTS ON THE ANTHONY FAMILY ON THE STAND   

GEORGE ANTHONY:     

  • I found his testimony to be unscripted and credible. Prior to him taking the stand I was so disappointed to see him change his way and become a supporter and make excuses for Casey.

  • I commend him for being able to even be composed after sitting in that court room hearing Jose Baez say he was a child molester.

  • I hurt for him when he was cross examined by Baez, yet cheered for him when he wouldnt allow him to mis construe his words.

  • AS A WHOLE I FOUND HIS TESTIMONY TO BE THAT OF A GRANDFATHER WHO LOST HIS GRAND DAUGHTER AND A FATHER WHO REALIZED HIS DAUGHTER WAS EVIL.

CINDY ANTHONY:

  • This was the woman I wanted to see for the past three years. She was a Grandmother first and foremost who even three years later grieves for her grand daughter.

  • The most telling part of her testimony to me was when she was asked when did she stop looking for Zenaida (Nanny) and she replied six weeks ago. I only wish they could have elaborated on that and ask why?  I wonder if six weeks ago was when she realized that Casey was not only going to accuse her entire family of being a part of this and that Casey was pure evil.

As anyone who has read my previous blogs knows, I was not a fan of Cindy and even believed that she should at some point be charged with onstruction. However, during this trial I see a Grandmother who lost her grand daughter and a mother who may not only face losing her daughter also, but had to come to the realization that: THE DAUGHTER SHE RAISED WAS AND IS NOT WHO SHE BELIEVED HER TO BE. THAT SHE MOST LIKELY FEELS SO MUCH GUILT FOR NOT HAVING CAYLEE DROPPED AT HER JOB THAT DAY (althought I don’t believe that would have mattered, maybe just bought another day or two in Caylee’s life) THAT SHE SEES IN HINDSIGHT NOW THAT HER DAUGHTER WASN’T THE MOTHER SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS AND PROBABLY REGRETS EVERY MOMENT SHE STOOD UP FOR HER THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE INVESTIGATION.

LEE ANTHONY :

  • I found Lee to be very much the same person he has been all along. He didn’t waiver from any previous statements he made nor did he seem to worry that his sister needed his protection.

  • I have said many times that I was not a fan of his and wondered why he “checked out” when he at first seemed to be the one that was going to get the answers.

  • I didn’t find anything during his testimony to be shocking or anything that has not been released prior to the trial.

MALLORY PARER:

  • This is probably the first time I have seen her for any length of time. I think she seemed quite genuine.

  • When she was asked what the relationship between Casey and Caylee was and broke down as she said “Amazing”, I truly felt for her. This poor girl hadn’t been part of this family for long before this all happened. Having recently had a child herself, I can only  imagine that as a mother she, like all of us normal mothers out there, cannot begin to comprehend how anyone can do this to a child.

 The impact that the family’s testimony will have on the jurors I believe could be just as important as the scientific evidence. If I was a juror I would be more interested in reviewing every word the family said before reviewing anything else. The family (in most cases) are the people who see one another when their guard is down, when one has the best and worst moments of their lives. To me were I a juror, I would think that the shift in the family support would be something that spoke volumes.
