Casey Anthony – The Final Words And Then Some


August 2005 ~ June 2008

It’s hard to believe we have finally reached this point, closing arguments!  While the good Judge has given specific instructions as to what can and cannot be said, I’ve little doubt Baez will follow instructions, he can’t help himself!

8:30, Judge Perry begins by reviewing jury instructions.  Seems the State and defense had some agreement for aggravated manslaughter, but didn’t write an instruction which really ticked Judge Perry off.  He will discuss it with them at lunch time after they write something up.

Sexual molestation may not be brought up by the defense because no facts of evidence were brought in.  The State may not address the issue unless the defense opens the door.

Each side will have 4 hours for closing. 

9:15 the jury is brought in.  Judge Perry reads a statement regarding Dr. Rodriguez’s sudden departure.

Jeff Aston thanks the jury for their sacrifice.  He speaks about what it means to be a parent and the expectations and responsibilities that go with it.

He goes to great lengths to point out her incredible capacity to lie and how well it worked for her, but Caylee was becoming verbal and at some point she could have blown Casey’s cover.

Jeff takes the jury through every day and every lie.  He says Casey is extremely bright and nimble in changing her stories to suit her audience.

As much as we’ve learned over the years it is really quite amazing what Casey was able to pull off until the car tripped her up!

It is just incredibly sad to realize how easy it was for Casey to do away with her own daughter!

Love ’em or hate ’em, this has to be very difficult for George and Cindy to sit through.

Baez has twice tried to object and has been overruled!

Jeff shows pictures of the remains, the Pooh blanket, the laundry bag, Caylee’s shorts and the letters from her little shirt.

He graphically describes the 3 pieces of tape that were placed over Caylee’s face and asks as Dr. G did, what other reason could there be to place duct tape on a live child!

Casey made an attempt at fake crying, but mostly her anger shows through.

The many angry faces of Casey.

Jeff finished in under two hours, strong without overdoing the emotional aspects and Judge Perry calls a recess.

Baez starts by thanking the jury. 

He begins with there is no dispute that Caylee is gone, but how she died will never be answered.

He reminds the jury the State has the burden of proof and the defense doesn’t have to prove anything.

Good thing because he didn’t deliver squat from his opening!

He claims Jeff Aston only opened by showing the Caylee video to use the emotions of the jury and it’s disrespectful to her memory to ‘parade’ her around!

Good grief!

He claims the State tried to portray Casey as a slut and a party girl.

He says there was absolutely no evidence of child abuse, Casey was a loving mother.

He tells the jury they heard stuff no other jury has heard…hair banding, air samples, cadaver dog training because the State had to up the ante as they didn’t have proof of anything.

Baez says the car proves nothing and just prolonged the trial.

How cute, Baez has a big poster boards where he is places little magnetic pictures!

He claims George knew the Pontic had been at the Amscot for three days and just let it be towed!

He tells the jury Forgey lied to them when he said his dog checked two cars!

Yuri, Hosey, Eberline…none of them did anything about the smell in the car so that creates reasonable doubt!

Casey and the shovel means nothing, she wasn’t sweaty when she returned it!  She took it to break the lock on the shed to get the gas cans, lol!

This is so much bogus bull pucky, I don’t know how the jury hasn’t burst out in raucous  laughter!

Police intentionally dried out the garbage to frame Casey.

OMG!  Baez says there was fingerprint dust on the Velveeta box so police wanted you to know, ‘who cut the cheese’!!!!  Again proves what a momo he is!

12:02 lunch is called.

Baez thinks he is such a great orator but doesn’t think well on his feet…he drifts like so much flotsam…all over the place.

Finally Judge Perry takes the bench at 2:07!

Baez is complaining Mr. Ashton’s facial expressions are a problem.  Judge says he didn’t see it.

Baez back on the car and a make-believe stain in the trunk.  It was 10 years old and had stains long before this occurred.

Well, stain or no stain Mr. Baez?

The State wants you to fill in the blanks with your emotions and anger!

There is a lack of evidence so they want you guessing!

This is not search for the truth, it’s about winning!

Shaw and Lowe only did the environmental study after we deposed them!

The State threw everything against the wall to see what sticks.  One day it’s chloroform, one day it’s duct tape.

Baez beating the crap out of Vass not being a chemist and selling sniffer machines!

Stenger made up all the crap about computer searches…this is fraud…

Objection, sustained!

Baez calls Stenger’s work bogus and mentions perjury!

Baez is at his sleaziest.

We all knew in 2009 that Cindy Anthony testified about searching for chloroform.  The State spent their entire rebuttal on proving Cindy is a liar.

The State has nothing, but fantasy.

The nonsense stops here with you when you raised your hands and swore to serve.

Baez has referred to the State’s evidence as outrageous multiple times.

Boy, Jose truly thinks he is Atticus Finch!

Ah, now he is attacking Dr. G and her autopsy and her attempt to make the evidence fit!

OMG!  Baez just called Dr. Warren, “Mr. Fantasyland”!!!  He was up there being an advocate, not a scientist.

Dr. G is a big shot and took over the case because of her relationship with the media.

Spitz is more qualified to render opinion because he was called in to the JFK and Martin Luther King murders!

Casey has issues and they were there long before Caylee was born.

Casey and her non-soggy kleenex!    ——————>

Can you imagine Cindy’s guilt over leaving the pool ladder up?

Police didn’t want to consider there was something wrong with Casey…they only thought murder.

The State wants to give you the who without the where and the why!

There were no child locks, Caylee could open the glass door and get out to the pool!

Kill me, I can’t take much more of the shit and I’m sure the jury feels the same!

George Anthony lied about the gas can.  He lies when it is convenient for him.  He lied in his deposition with Mr. Ashton.

Baez has rambled on-and-on about Casey being a crazy liar, coming from a family of liars, but we still don’t have anything to do death Caylee’s death.

Holy shit!  Baez just, at the top of his lungs, screamed George lied on the stand…Jeff loudly voiced objection and the Judge called everyone to the bench!

Doesn’t matter what he says, Baez can’t pin the disposal of Caylee’s body on George…doesn’t work!

Judge Perry wisely calls a break to let the attorneys cool down.

I love Jeff Ashton, but he has been pushing the envelope by laughing through Baez’s closing.  I luv him but he is sophomoric at times!

Judge Perry viewed the video of Jeff’s reactions while Baez was speaking.  He sends both parties out to view for themselves.

Mr. Baez’s remarks and Jeff’s antics, both, have royally pissed off Judge Perry and he says this has been going on throughout and he shouldn’t have to watch them.  He also says 1993 Court orders on decorum that he signed obviously don’t mean a hill of beans to them!

Jeff says he doesn’t need to see the video, he trusts the Judge’s decision.  Mason of course has to be contrary and wants to view it.

Ashton says he was smiling behind his hand to hide it from the jury and he apologizes.  Baez says Ashton should not be held in contempt, it’s been emotional for 3 years.  He also apologizes to the court.  Baez would have had the same charges leveled at him so he isn’t being noble!

Judge Perry says he will accept that for the time being.  If it happens again, that attorney will be excluded and things will be quite, quite uncomfortable.

Judge Perry says the jury will not be given instructions until tomorrow because the charges aren’t complete and he shouldn’t have taken them at their word and called them in yesterday like he wanted.

Baez continues there was no murder in this case, there is no evidence, but George has lied about everything.

George cares about George, not about his wife, not about his daughter, not about his family.

Holy shit, Baez says George bought the gun to make sure Casey went back to jail!

The State was walking around with blinders and trying to put square pegs in round holes.

Kronk is a liar and only wanted money.  If Det. Cain was so rude to him, why didn’t he just grab the bag and take it down the street to all the media trucks and say, ‘here it is, give me the reward money.’

I’m really waiting for that proverbial bolt of lighting to come down and zap Baez!

5:15 Judges calls a break.  Mason comes next to do law 101 and we still have Linda….accccckkkkk

Mason goes through the charges and how the law is applied to them.  Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!

Casey was only 22, my shoes are that old!

OMG, Shut up you old fool!  I don’t imagine the jury is taking this too well, he’s going over the same shit Baez did!

6:15 Break time!

Pretty sure the jury has shut down mentally at this point!  I know I have!

Linda needs to hit hard and hit fast to keep the jury focused, it’s late, they’re tired and hungry!

6:37 Perry tells the jury we are close to the end, but it will be a long day tomorrow! So, Linda gets a fresh jury tomorrow…sweet!

6:39, we’re done!

    I’m so beat!

    And right on the heels of Ashton going out of his way to NOT call her out for her…..Casey-ness (at least in that area).

    OMG,MASON!!! We get it. You pre-date leather. Did he really try to tie in patriotism and “NOT GUILTY”?

    OMG, kas, nothing left to say!

    Kim, I just so want this over now, then we can celebrate Casey being punished and Caylee being free, once and for all!

    Methinks Baez repeatedly called Casey a slut because secretly, he’s wanted to all along and this was his chance to do it and not have her get mad at HIM. I don’t believe he thinks at ALL highly of her and I bet he can’t wait to wash his hands of her and cash in his chips. She’s a means to fame and fortune for this guy. She means nothing to him. She would probably be SHOCKED to hear the way he and the team speak about her behind closed doors.

    I am glad the State gets to begin rebuttal tomorrow, it will give the jurors the chance to wash off the crap they heard on Defense closing statement and start fresh in the morning with logic.

    Well shucks I’m in Texas, give me time to get a flight out, don’t open that bottle without me, lol. I’m like Judge Perry. I don’t give a hill of a beans. I made my mind up that Casey killed her own beautiful child but I can only pray the jury sees it the same way. If I feel like I need to get this trial over with so I can get back to my life, I can only imagine how the jury and the Anthony family feel at this point. And I honestly can’t see how the Anthonys can even survive this.

    This was the Johnny Cochran defense. Talk about throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks (Pot, meet kettle). I could only listen to Baez sporadically. I kept praying he was angering the jury. The talking heads seem to think the jury loves Baez and doesn’t like Ashton. Hopefully, Ashton didn’t tick them off with his silliness. OMG! This needs to be over! If I’d been in that courtroom, I think I would have had to put my hands of Casey’s throat and throttled her!

    Wish I could have seen it. Thanks for the update. Happy 4th everyone!!!

    It was a great pity that Baez continued to try and use the shock factor to bring the jury around, but honestly, did he think the little old grandmother would be swayed to hang the jury on that? I found it disgusting and unnecessary. But it also confirms that he is accustomed to sleeze, uneducated even after law school, and has learned nothing by being around professionals.

    Omg! I turned the tv up a little during Biaz’s closing. I had to turn the channel for Mason. I just couldn’t listen to him go on and on for hours. I’m being honest…I’d prob be an awful juror. I tend to lose focus quick…lol.
    I’m of course praying for a guilty verdict…I believe Casey Anthony is just the worst of the worst. Just b/c she’s “an attractive white, middle class 20 something yr old” doesn’t mean she is innocent of murdering her daughter. She def did something that lead to her daughters death. And also def dumped her body in a swamp…then went off on her merry way. Probably thinking she’d just be a mother of a missing child. Hence…the missing child search on the home PC.
    I was a medic for many yrs & Ive seen many cases of parents who medicate the children to help or make them sleep. And sometimes the child goes into resp failure. So, I’m not sure if Casey gave Caylee chrolophorm and Caylee overdosed or she purp killed Caylee. But…what was up with that duct tape? I guess we’ll never know the truth. Like Jeff Ashton said ” let’s hope Caylee wasn’t duct tape, ALIVE!!!”” ughhh…Either way Casey is guilty. And so is her MOM! Cindy is a liar to me and should feel guilty.
    Love everyone’s comments…Decided to post my own tonight! Thanks everyone…Happy 4th from Northern NJ! Tammy….
