Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 2012 starts Friday

September 21 2012 through October 31 2012

Each step brings an eerie feeling that something horrifying is tracing your every move with lifeless eyes. You frantically search for a place to hide as a growling, flesh-hungry mob gains ground. Turning a corner, you breathe a sigh of relief….Until you look ahead.  Screams pierce the night as you’re overcome. You never had a chance. There is no escape.

Beginning September 21, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights returns for 25 nights as the nation’s best and most intense Halloween event. This year, once guests step inside Halloween Horror Nights, they will not be able to escape the horror that awaits them, including terrifying haunted houses featuring some of the biggest names in pop culture – like AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Silent Hill. And, with a completely reinvented street experience, scarecators will seek them out no matter where they turn.

CMA Juror No 3, Jennifer Ford ABC interview

http://abcnews.go.com/US/casey_anthony_trial/casey-anthony-juror-sick-stomach-guilty-verdict/story?id=14005609

at 1:58 she said:  “We had a lot of discussion, we started to go through some stuff, but none of it…..how did she die?”  They were out for a grand total of 10 hours.

I understand if the state did not prove the case, but I heard her say it was easier for her to believe the drowning story (with no testimony at all) than to believe the state’s chloroform and duct tape evidence.  Opening statement is not evidence.   And she’s talking about punishment and they were not supposed to be considering punishment in the guilt phase of the trial.

See verdict forms and the instructions of the judge to the jury:

I listened to the video of the interview she had with ABC, and I picked up on the “we started to go through some stuff” meaning that they did not take the time to even go over the evidence.  Juror No. 3 is a 32 year old nursing student (but not in school right now) living with her mother.  I wonder who the foreperson of this jury was.

The more I find out about the jury, the more I am convinced Casey did get a jury of her peers.  One had trouble staying awake, at least one had DUIs, one had a sister who had, along with her boyfriend, done some assault on her mother.

Ford said this about her fellow-jurors:   “They picked a great bunch of people, such high integrity. And there was high morale,” she said. “We all joked. We are like a big group of cousins.”

More Casey unbelivable stuff

Casey sentencing:

In the video below, Casey is at sentencing and at the defense table, in a nice soft looks like blue to me colored pull over shirt, hair down, smiling at times, gesturing, messing with her hair and from about 24.00 she is talking to Ms. Sims in what seems a rather serious conversation, But at about 25.32 she looks up and sees Jose Baez as he walks in.   From there on for a while, it is their interaction that is worth the price of admission.  My.  My.  I was watching this in real time and I have searched and searched for a shorter video to show this segment, but so far, this is the best I can find – a video of the whole thing, so I tried to pinpoint this particular part.

Later in the day, lightning struck a tree at Suburban Drive close to the spot where Caylee’s body was found.

The tree is about five feet off the pavement on Suburban Drive and the memorial is another 10 to 15 feet beyond that. A short trail which leads down into the woods to the memorial site is essentially at the foot of the tree, according to FOX 35 Orlando in Orange County.

Just a coincidence, I am sure, as thousands of trees are hit by lightning, but it is the place and the time of this one that give you pause.

Jose Baez has already been dropped by a talent agency, and I hear that Vivid has withdrawn the offer made to Casey to “star” in some poro flicks.  This case could go either way.  Maybe they’ll make a bunch of money on it – and maybe not.

I dunno, but it looks like Somebody might be interceding for Caylee.

Casey will probably walk free this morning

I am expecting Casey Anthony to be released with time served today.  At maximum she could only be sentenced to 4 years.

So the jury has spoken.  I can understand their verdict.  I really can.  I remember when the state closed their case, I thought, is that it?  Big holes remained.  But for the remainder of the trial I was not on her side.  I guess almost no one was or is.

I do hope she is charged with restitution for the massive fraud she pulled.  And I really think her lawyer(s) should be sanctioned or fined, too, because at least Baez knew from the beginning Caylee was dead.  He has been her attorney for the entire time, and almost the first sentence out of his mouth at opening was that Caylee was NEVER missing.  So it is unthinkable how they let it go on and on.  Under any scenario, the state’s or the defense’s, there was no need for any search.   Honestly, the accident theory to me is almost worse than a murder.  At least in murder, you might expect that the body would be hidden and tossed, but if this was an accident, they gave their dogs a better burial than they gave Caylee.  Horrifying. 

I do think they should transport her to Pinellas County and deposit her there upon release.  Maybe one or more of the jurors would like to take her in. 

Just being sarcastic.   I heard she and Cindy will be going to Texas.  Good for Florida.  Bad for Texas.

Some Casey Anthony “you can’t make it up” stuff AKA nothing like a sore winner

Cheney Mason, Casey Anthony’s other attorney, has expressed his complete disdain for the media, both in word and deed.  I understand he was doing this case pro bono and that he up until this time has had a stellar reputation and was well-respected.  But honest to God, folks, this is about the most childish unprofessional display I have ever seen.  I think this was maybe taken through the plate glass window behind which the defense team was having a victory party yesterday, so maybe he was drunk.  Let’s hope he has some excuse.

The media or parts of it really have been awful in reporting this case and convicting Casey before her trial, but for goodness sake, he is all in for the constitution as it applies to defendants and their presumption of innocense, but does not believe in the other part, freedom of speech and freedom of the press?  Come on, Mr. Mason.  It obviously did not have any impact whatsoever on the results in this case, as they exonerated your client.

 

And to top it off, Casey Anthony has received an offer from Vivid Entertainment to do some porno movies.  Great idea.  Maybe she can pay back the State of Florida for financing the search for her daughter who she knew was dead, who paid for most of her defense, who paid for all the expenses of the trial and housing and feeding and entertaining the sequestered jury, and now will probably have to pay for her protection, ironically by the same law enforcement personnel she lied to as they searched for her dead child.

Casey Anthony found not guilty

The question looms – who wrapped Caylee in a blanket, put duct tape on her mouth and placed her in two plastic bags, one cloth laundry bag ,and threw her in the woods to rot and have animals chew on her bones?

This question needs to be answered. 

I think Casey will be sentenced to time served and walk out on Thursday.  George and Cindy are probably terrified she will come home.  And she may, but if she doesn’t want to, Jose will take care of her until they can cash in on the story.  She will be free to go about her life, make up more lies, and have more children.

Just heard Ashton is retiring.
