Is Casey Anthony being treated unfairly by the police?
If Jose Baez thought he could drum up support for Casey Anthony with yesterday’s statement to the press saying (indignantly) that the police were infringing on all of our rights, I think he failed.
Baez said members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office were making attempts to intimidate him and his client, Casey and said that games were being played in reference to her third arrest.
“I am not intimidated in any way, shape or form. If the state of Florida wants to play these games and waste your tax dollars and your resources, that’s for everyone to stand up for and complain about,” Baez said. “Officers are being wasted and could be on the street where they are needed.'”
Are you kidding me??????? What exactly has Casey been doing these last few weeks if it wasn’t WASTING TAXPAYER’S MONEY? How many tax dollars have been spent on: (1) searching for Caylee. (2) Dealing with Casey. (3) Dealing with the Anthony family. (4) Protecting the Anthony family from the ever growing mob of protesters? And he accuses the police of wasting the taxpayer’s money?? Just an unbelievable statement by Mr. Baez!!! If Casey had cooperated in the first place, none of this would be happening!
He said in the hours he has spent with Casey in the past weeks, he has prepared her to be tough and to be ready to face whatever information investigators have. Casey has been prepared for the worst,” Baez said. “She won’t cave in.”
This last statement was in reference to the hours and hours Casey is spending at his office. I guess Casey is getting that “script” after all–but it’s not from Zenaida!
Baez says he has requested that he be given information on evidence they do have so his own investigators can look at it. Baez does not believe police have any evidence of missing 3-year-old Caylee being either dead or alive, or what would have turned it over to him.
Since when does the police have to share anything with the defense? Am I wrong about that? Wouldn’t they want to keep their evidence to themselves until the trial?
Mr. Baez’ demeanor was very smug, and he appeared to think we should all be outraged by the treatment poor Casey is receiving. Yes, she has the right to a fair trial and an untainted jury pool. Of course she does, but she should have been worrying about that before she and her family created all this drama and publicity around her. She and her lies caused the media frenzy –NOT the police! If she had cooperated like any normal innocent parent, or fessed up if she were to blame, none of this would be happening. She made herself look guilty as hell– the police didn’t. She plainly incriminated herself on the tapes of their interview with her. I think her usual MO (blaming anyone and everyone but herself for her actions) won’t work this time. The police aren’t the easy marks her family is and now, apparently her attorney is as well.
In the video, Mr. Baez states that If the police could do this to Casey, they could do it to any one of us???? I think not. Would you or I have taken the police on the insane ride Casey Anthony has? If she had been honest, we wouldn’t be talking about any of this today. No one would be “presuming” she were guilty if she hadn’t LIED and continued to LIE when she got caught LYING!
Check the video out for yourselves.
