Yes I watched the trial and George, Cindy and Lee all acting so looney that if I was a juror, between the defense opening statements, their bizarre behaviour, not to forget Jeff Ashton's laughing guy routine, I'd have had a great deal of reasonable doubt I was even attending a real trial!<quoted text>
Did you actually watch the trial??????????
I think not, if you think both parents helped create reasonable doubt!
Too bad you didn't watch the trial, or you would have made note of daddy's outburst when he yelled at Baez and said Casey was the last person with Caylee and told Baez, "You do the math, Mr. Baez!".
You live in some strange world if you think a parent trying to create reasonable doubt to HELP his daughter would ever say those words above, or below!
Lack of evidence is what created reasonable doubt........no, I take that back, lack of evidence PROVED reasonable doubt.....in fact, lack of evidence proved beyond ANY doubt that the State didn't have the goods to convict; the State didn't even have the goods to prove how Caylee died. And the defense destroyed that 3 year pre-trial nonsense about duct tape being across her mouth and nose area by USING the STATE'S OWN witness!
I can only speculate that there's something missing from your thought process, whereby you do not have the ability to rationalize the outcome of the sort of backward dynamics created by the defense offering up the illusion of another suspect - George - who was not on trial but who was adamantly defended by the prosecution to be not involved. A "straw man" defense, I suppose you could think of it as, with the strawman a central figure in the trial.
The result was a sort of backwards trial, which directed all the energy away from the State proving Casey's guilt.
I's suggest because of your burning fury toward the Anthony family, it has clouded your ability to see things objectively - by taking the focus off Casey, who was the defendant, her family created the reasonable doubt which resulted in her acquittal. I continue to think the script was ultimately extremely ingenious!
