Skip to comments.'Team Casey' gives America the finger: How defence celebrated
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 only dream of being able to give the msm the one fingered salute.
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.
Mason kicks ass! I loved it when he reamed them a new one. Mason 1 Media 0.

He was flipping off the entire crowd of onlookers.
Casey is dead. The murderer went free. WOOHOO! Pop the champagne corks.
No kidding, the media deserves it.
Sad affair all around.
But I have to admit I enjoyed watching Nancy Grace pee herself on national TV.
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.
You bet your Bippy.
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.
So what? Who were the "onlookers"? MSM and ghouls. Maybe you should direct your scorn toward the prosecutors who did a p!ss poor job. They were a bunch of clowns.
Exactly who is paying the defense lawyers?
Please see post #13
The whole thing reminded me of Romans flocking to the Colosseum to watch a good bloodbath. Disgusting affair all around.
What does that have to do with whether or not her mother was the one that killed her?
A little girl is dead-and her body was thrown away in a field like trash. Doesnt anybody want to know who did this?
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.
“Not this publically, with a nation stunned and outraged over the death of a little girl, you don’t.”
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.
You beat me to it!
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.
I guess the jurors overlooked that Casey is a liar.
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.
The child’s death was an accident that snowballed out of control?! Are you kidding me? Baez is a schmuck.
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.
Possible Czars for a second Ibama term?
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.
I’m at a loss.
Who paid for all those lawyers?
They have the right to celebrate.
I don’t recall saying that?
no. They convicted her on four counts of lying to a police officer.
Actually, that’s the least they could do for her.
Your comment would be more effective if you didn’t mix up the name of the deceased and the murderer.
Actually the jury did convict her of four counts of lying to police.
I guess the jurors overlooked that Casey is a liar.

She is a liar. So what?
Celebrating the murder of a little girl.
I know that; but she may walk for time served; so what price is she paying?
O.J. Simpson is a liar. That doesn’t mean he killed Nicole. Nobody killed Nicole, just as nobody killed this little girl. Case over, go home folks.
"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.
