'Team Casey' gives America the finger: How defence celebrated
Daily Mail ^ | July 6, 2011 | Paul Bentley

Posted on 07/06/2011 1:05:29 PM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Casey Anthony's defence team have been branded insensitive and loutish after they were spotted celebrating their court victory with a lavish champagne party.

In an unapologetic display many have slammed as inappropriate considering the serious nature of their case, Jose Baez and his team were seen downing drinks as they watched reaction to their client being found not guilty of brutally murdering her two-year-old child, Caylee.

At one point, attorney Cheney Mason could be seen making an obscene gesture to an angry crowd outside, an apparent gesture of contempt towards anyone who dares criticise the team.

What a classy bunch. "Team Casey" and "White Trash" are interchangeable terms, apparently.

I would give the press the finger everyday of the week. Why should the defense team give this creeps the time of day when 24/7 they were calling them dopes and that they had an unwinnable case. Screw the MSM.

Full title (wouldn’t fit):

“’Team Casey’ gives America the finger: How defence celebrated win with champagne, dances and hugs all round”

Note the video at link. As is typical, some self-appointed idiot wannabe-cop interferes with a videographer on public property.

After being criticized, ridiculed and declared incompetent for the past several months to a year, I personally don’t care how they partied, and am amused they actually flipped off the press. JMHO.

A little girl is dead-—and her body was thrown away in a field like trash. Doesn’t anybody want to know who did this?

I believe the defense scored bigtime when they showed videos of Casey happily playing with Caylee.

This led the jury to doubt whether a mother could actually kill her own child——when she apparently enjoyed playing with her.

That apparently convinced the jury Casey could not have done this.

Note to those who celebrate this as a “VICTORY.”

A little girl is dead. A mother who is very likely to have murdered her or at the least had a great deal to do with the coverup has been acquitted.

If the mother is indeed guilty, Caylee has been denied justice forever, at least in earthly courts.

Celebrate if you like. I believe it is a very hollow victory.

Just because the “guilty sometimes go free” under our system, that is not a “good” thing. It is NOT a reason to celebrate.

Murderers going free is an unfortunate byproduct of having an imperfect system, even though it is the best thing we’ve come up with so far.

But pop the champagne corks, if that’s how you roll.

Here is the oft-forgotten problem for lawyers in cases where they got generally assumed-to-be-guilty clients off in high profile cases.

The public and juries don't like the results and either (or both) takes it out on lawyers future clients, and/or public and juries assume all of their clients are guilty, and return guilty verdicts.

As a result, they end up with no clients.

We know who did it! The Jury pulled an OJ!! They did not deliberate. I believe they went into the Jury Room voted several times and that was it!!!!! Is she guilty of Murder No.
Is she guilty of child abuse -NO. Was the child murdered? No How ever she did not commit Suicide or die of natural causes. The jury had enough info to convict her of manslaughter!

Show me a team of attorneys that doesn’t celebrate a big win. A high profile win like this is their super bowl, you pop the cork when you win the super bowl.

Not this publically, with a nation stunned and outraged over the death of a little girl, you don't.

And you well know it.

I believe in karma — what goes around, comes around or something like that. Like OJ, that smug broad is one day going to get her comeuppance. Sadly, though, it will probably take another murder, maybe of her next child, to do it.

“A high profile win like this is their super bowl, you pop the cork when you win the super bowl.”

A perfect illustration of the moral sickness and lack of perspective in this case....a trial over the murder of a little girl is likened to the Super Bowl.

Perverse.

Your post #24 has a faulty premise, or you are ignoring what the media said about the defense. The Media tried and convicted the defendant AND bad-mouthed the defense lawyers.

Having won, I would have had servings of fried crow delivered to the presstitutes and lawyers, but the Universal Gesture of Rejection would be less expensive.

Good and accurate post, imo.

This is such a heart wrenching case all of the way around, no one won and certainly not Caylee, I would love to see the person responsible pay for this crime but the problem seems to be proving who it was.

So sad in every way...even the divisions it's causing on this site, amongst FRiends.

In this modern world anything semi-public is this public, the only quest is whether or not somebody is going to point a camera at it. It’s not the attorneys’ fault the country didn’t agree, they did their job, and in spite of a press that insisted they were a bunch of incompetent boobs they won.

It’s not perverse, it’s reality. There’s a reason it’s called “winning” and “losing” and the groups of lawyers are called “teams”. The legal arena is competition. One team won, they won an extremely high profile case, that’s going to be very good for their careers, if they even bother to continue to have careers after they finish signing the book deals.

And it’d be just as lucrative for the prosecution had they won. Ask Vincent Bugliosi.

A little girl is dead. A mother who is very likely to have murdered her or at the least had a great deal to do with the coverup has been acquitted.

"Very likely to have murdered." your phrase speaks a mouthful because under our rule of law, under our Constitution, a criminal conviction requires "proof beyond a reasonable doubt," and indeed, a conviction upon a lower standard (i.e., "very likely") would violate the 5th and 14th Amendments.
