Orlando, Florida – I’m no lawyer, but sympathy, emotions, and non-facts, should not be part of any murder trial. Today’s evidence in the murder case of Casey Anthony was not evidence, but pure emotion, speculation and sympathy for the grandmother. It has been reported that the whole family is dysfunctional and it was very clear today this may be true, and although it is only the seventh  day of trial this is a very dysfunctional family in my view. In previous testimony by George, Casey’s Father, he would never answer the defense attorney’s questions, and today it was the same approach from the mother, Cindy.Let’s face it, Casey Anthony is not the poster child for Mother of the Year, but this is just so, so slanted, since everyone has been coached to hate her and that is not right. How she acts in the courtroom to her mother, how she dresses, how she looks at anyone, these are not reasons for convicting someone of the worst crime ever. Innuendo, speculation, looks, clothing they are not evidence.I agree, I suspected she was guilty from three years ago, and she may well be, but we must let the trial play out. From what I understand as a layman, people get convicted on evidence and we have seen very little so far. Yes, computer checks for chloroform, checks for neck breaking, hair in the trunk, these are all circumstantial evidence and no one has placed Casey at the desk of the computer, or putting her daughters hair in the trunk.
Tonight on Nancy Grace show on HLN, where she is in true form, where she has said such things as “Casey placed her daughters dead body in a pet cemetery with duct tape over her mouth”   is just all conjecture and not based on any real facts. She even had a veteran New York City lawyer Paul Batista as a guest on her show tonight and he spouted the same as me, and she said, “cut his microphone, he’s not answering my questions”  which means he is not in lock step loop with Nancy Grace’s view, and can’t be heard, doubt if he will be asked back on. I have read that the duct tape over the mouth of young Caylee was probably done by the person who killed/or covered up the death, to make it appear that it was a kidnapping.
It appears that everyone from CNN shows, appears to have a closed mind, and think/demand that Casey is guilty. Thank goodness we even have trials, with people thinking like this, and spewing their biased opinions. I have not decided yet, if I think Casey is guilty, it looks very bad for her if I just listen to the main stream media, but I have my doubts, but they may be addressed later in the trial. But I have not decided to take her out and finish her off before she gets a fair and unbiased trial, what is happening people, there must be evidence, proving these things especially in a murder trial, it must be beyond reasonable doubt. Are people saying, they have no doubt   in their minds after the revealing opening statement at the beginning of the trial by Casey’s defense attorney Jose Baez? Maybe not, but I sure do, have all kinds of doubt in my mind and I’m just a regular guy.
Casey is the one everyone loves to hate, and “string her up”  mentality, but that went out, back when cattle rustlers were hung, not today.It shall be very interesting in the next few days, when George and Cindy’s son Lee takes the stand and maybe then, we will see that we have a package deal of a full dysfunctional family, and it also appears that they may all be liars, just as they programmed their daughter Casey.

TRIAL CHATTER: I thought it was just me mixing up Casey, Caylee, Cindy, all such similar names but I heard Cindy today on the stand make the mistake herself, at least twice?
