Rock-Throwing Protesters Try To Drag Missing Girl's Grandfather Into Street
www.local6.com ^ | 09/18/2008 | Staff

Posted on 09/18/2008 5:42:48 AM PDT by Red Badger

A group of rock-throwing protesters shined flashlights into the windows of the home of missing toddler Caylee Anthony's grandparents and fought with the family early Thursday before trying to drag Anthony's grandfather into the street.

Since Caylee's mother, Casey, was released from jail for a third time, protesters have continued to gather outside the home and become more aggressive. Several people were seen banging on the Anthony family's home and throwing rocks at the structure.

"(We're here) just to protest," a woman said outside of the home. "It's just to break them down. I think they are just protecting their daughter (Casey) which is the wrong thing to do in this case."

Grandmother Cindy Anthony ran outside with a bat in hand when the group began screaming at her husband, George, early Thursday.

A protester then reached over and tried to drag George Anthony off his property.

Local 6 reported that Cindy Anthony was pushed by a protester during the incident.

After the confrontation, George Anthony sprayed down the group of people with a hose.

By the time, officers arrived at the Anthony home, the group had left the neighborhood. No one was charged in the incident but deputies are looking at the Local 6 video.

The group of protesters yelled, "See you tomorrow" before driving away.

Search Taken To Puerto Rico

Meanwhile, George and Cindy Anthony are taking the search to find Caylee to Puerto Rico.

Cindy Anthony sat down with a Univision reporter for a one-on-one interview for the Spanish language TV station.

Anthony said she wanted to do the interview because of the large Puerto Rican viewership and she would like for the report to be played in Puerto Rico.

She said the family got tips about Caylee but could not give details about exactly where in Puerto Rico.

In the interview, Cindy Anthony said investigators told her weeks ago about evidence from the body farm.

According to investigators, the evidence suggests that Caylee is dead.

Cindy Anthony said she believes it was an intimidation tactic.

I think the problem extends well beyond this mutant family. It's a reflection of the angst of the average American that those who break the law never suffer the consequences. Franklin Raines "steals" $100,000,000 from his exalted position but there are NO charges. The criminals who have been given massive bailouts by the gov't have millions socked away in offshore accounts and are set for life, but the gov't ALLOWS them to keep their corporate positions so they can f*ck us even more without facing any retribution!

It goes to the unfairness of the "Law" as it's applied to certain people. You and I would be thrown in the slammer for jaywalking. These morons steal billions and will be vacationing in southern France for the rest of their stinking criminal lives!

No wonder they want to throw rocks and drag liars and conspirators out into the streets! They see that no one is going to do anything to protect the innocent so they figure it's been left up to them!

I can see your frustration, I feel it too.

People tend to see that the the worst people always seem to get more protection then the victims get justice.

I guess there is more money and fame to be gained by shielding the criminals.

Cindy and George have no impulse control - they have constantly been in front of the cameras. If you recall, well before the protesters came to their home, when it was news media crawling everywhere, Cindy was constantly outside. She loves the limelight just like Casey.

I think the protesters are going too far as well and wish they would all leave. Cindy would be so disappointed she would start hounding the media again for coverage and it would drive her crazy to be ignored. Like Mother, like daughter.

absolutely, post a no trespassing sign on the property and have a scatter gun available. No matter what is transpiring in the case these idiot protestors should not be allowed to go on their property or throw rocks at their house. Where are the police?

The protesters are hurting their own cause by acting like jackasses. Their actions will take the focus off of Casey and the guilty parties and focus it instead on their intimidation and mob tactics. Bad move.

Actually, Nancy Grace has been defending these grandparents all along. She can't imagine that they have helped Casey in any way, which many other people do believe.

If these were Nancy Grace devotees, they wouldn't be protesting the grandparents.

I read some comments claiming George was Caylee's dad and such, but I don't believe any of that. Casey is a sociopath and needs constant attention. One of the mainstays of that personality is being sexually promiscuous - she didn't need her brother or dad to get her pregnant.

I think the problem with the hair sample is that Casey and Caylee would have the same DNA pattern - so they can't conclusively say it was Caylee's instead of Casey's - except, that the length of hair has indicated to them it was Caylee's.

These people are freaks. They go much further and they really aren’t any better than Casey.

No, just a bunch of Obama supporters in action...

They're just a bunch of 'community organizers.'

Supposedly the hair of a decomposing body has some type of rings that appear on the strands.

Thats what one of the pathologists was saying.

I agree with you on who the baby daddy could be. It would probably be easier when it comes to this Casey, to weed out who isn’t a candidate for daddy. lol

Ha - that is so sad but true.... I wonder if guys all over the area are counting on their fingers backwards hoping that Caylee wasn’t their child...

Granny Cindy loves the attention. She and George go out of their way to egg on this nuts outside their home.

Does Cindy even own a pair of pants? Did she wear shorts and a tank top (pre-free tshirt distribution) to court?

Yes, she loves it or she wouldn't constantly be outside taunting them. I wish they would leave too so she would feel the how empty life is going to be once this circus is over and Casey is in prison for life.

Caylee is always going to be gone and her actions and attacks against those who want to find this baby's body are always going to haunt her. She will never be able to show her face without people knowing who she is and how she has screamed that this child is alive and we are all lying and trying to wrongly convict her "mother of the year" daughter.

Yuck-seriously the brother may be the dad? First this daughter doesn’t care wht her family has had to go through because of her - most normal people would give it up for the family but this monster doesn’t care at all—second is the family really going to live out their days like this? They’re willing to be prisoners along with the daughter day after day like it has been with protesters outside and having to rush in and out of their home? This whole thing is like a bad movie and the daughter just acts like nothing has happened and I’m sure by now thinks she has gotten away with murder. Last night on some show they suggested Casey had thrown Caylee in a pond that is filled with alligators! Now that is cold!

Can’t say I would blame them, I would hate to live on their street right now.

The lead singer in the praise band I sing with lives on their street. It has not been a pleasant experience, especially since he has five kids and can't let them go outside normally.

When was Nancy Grace appointed as judge, jury and executioner? I presume that you have listened to hear news on this case. How is the defendant supposed to get a fair trial after CNN tries and convicts her on nightly TV.

Pray to God that you are never suspected of something that TV picks up on and determines Aha, there’s money to be made here.

The fact we tolerate is disgusting to me.

Nancy Grace never met an innocent person. She was about to throw the switch on the boys in the Duke rape hoax. With Nancy, all a person has to be is accused in order to be guilty. I haven’t been able to even stand watching her since then. She’s disgusting.

I have no doubts that it is miserable. You know, this could end if Cindy and her huby quit resorting to egging these people on.

They ought to come and go as they please, if these people hamper them in any way, like throwing rocks, obsructing their free movement etc, dial 911.

If you look at that video, Cindy and George mix it up with them. That is what these thugs want them to do.

I know it has to be hard to ignore them, but if they did, these people aren’t going to get any excitement, they just might drift off from boredom.

Dvd Mom said: "According to the bounty hunter Padilla Cindy & George were willing to take lie detector tests but Lee talked them out of it :(( Another website even suggested that Lee ( Casey's brother ) could be Caylee’s daddy and that is why there may be issues with the piece of hair that was Caylee’s in the trunk of the car." This is a really bizarre case , but Cindy & George are enabler's which is so sad for Caylee . I heard Casey's police intergottation tapes & Casey lies with no regrets at all . She had elaborate lies about working at Universal & etc.. with much detail she is scary ...

Perhaps George and Cindy may know the truth or enough of it to realize that if the truth is revealed they could lose BOTH children.

As far as the protesters goes, the pyschopath and sociopaths attract their kind, but the HomeOwners Association needs to boot the Anthony's out of the neighborhood.
