This trial has turned into a bad soap opera. The Anthonys are a dysfunctional family, all right. They are all liars.
Cindy cries. Cindy lies. Now Lee cries. I am surprised this sob fest is allowed day after day.
I think this case has a lot of problems on the state side, but this defense case is ridiculous. Cindy and George are allowed in the courtroom to hear all the testimony, which none of the other witnesses are allowed to do under the rule of sequestration. I guess the judge allowed this because they are considered victims. So they can formulate testimony and lies to create confusion. It seems Cindy is running the show and probably has been enabling her daughter, Casey, for most of her life and is now trying to enable her in this situation. It seems that dispite all the tears, Caylee is a mere afterthought. Cindy is center stage and directing the drama while she covers for Casey.
I haven’t decided about Lee yet. He did seem genuinely emotional today, but when he broke into a sob, I started to get suspicious. A little “over the top” as he described his parents seems to apply to him as well. The thing I took away from his testimony was that he was hurt and probably has been hurt throughout his life because Cindy has sucked up all the air in that family. So when he was shoved aside once again when Casey got pregnant, and he was hurt by that. But the defense story that George and Lee molested Casey? Why wasn’t he asked about it when they had him on the stand?
I looked back at the statements made to the police when Caylee was first reported missing.
I noticed that in all three statements – George, Cindy, and Casey – they said the last time the child was seen was on June 9th. All of them.
That is wrong because they uncovered the video on Father’s Day, a week later, of Caylee with her grandfather in the nursing home. So it turned out to be June 16th a week later they saw Caylee last.
You might expect someone to get a date mixed up.
One of them would be understandable. But all of them? This indicates to me there was some discussion or collusion between the three of them. They were getting their stories straight.
But they got it wrong. This seems to gain weight now that they are taking to the stand in what seems to be planned testimony, ie, Cindy taking the blame for searching for the chloroform. Darn, maybe they are all involved. A dog eating bamboo? I guess they are all accustomed to lying that they don’t realize how stupid that sounds. I’ll bet you the jury realizes it.
One show today was actually playing some tear jerking music in the background as they replayed Lee’s testimony. Talk about staging the news.
The tall tales are going to be their downfall. They would have been much better off to just rely on the weakness of the state’s case.
I have a nagging question: Where was Casey and what was she doing during the time she was supposed to be at work at Universal for two years? Has Anybody asked about that? Where was she – what was she doing? This could have a bearing on the entire case.
And just who is the father of Caylee?
