Friday, December 11, 2009, Caylee Anthonyâ€™s motherâ€™s defense team was in court with a few requests made to Judge Stan Strickland. Casey Anthony will go to trial next year as she is charged with first degree murder for the death of her then 2 year old daughter, Caylee.
The judge ruled Friday prosecutors can seek the death penalty in the case. Casey’s defense team asked the judge to take the death penalty option off the table saying prosecutors were using it in bad faith. A judge denied the defense’s request. Strickland says the defense team had a compelling argument but he thinks the matter is best left to the jury on this one.
During this court event there was something that happened that the public certainly noticed but personally I have to question the motive. Casey actually showed some tears which some are trying to make it appear to be as her finally showing some sort of emotions over the death of her daughter.
It seems that while the prosecution was talking to the judge about how they believe that little Caylee was murdered, Casey started crying. In fact a microphone picked up her voice telling her lawyer Andrea Lyon to make them stop, only to be told that she couldnâ€™t. So Casey sat there and was comforted by both Lyon and Baez.
Normally emotions such as this would be expected from someone over the loss of their own child but to show emotions a year to date from when your childâ€™s remains were found is a bit late if you ask me.
Casey has been in jail for well over a year. I believe if memory serves me correctly she was arrested in October of 2008 after the grand jury handed down an indictment against her for the murder of her daughter. Caylee has been gone since mid June 2008 but wasnâ€™t reported missing until Cindy Anthony, Caseyâ€™s mother, made the infamous 911 call.
Once the investigation started I can only really two other times that Casey was seen shredding tears while in public. The first time she was seen in tears was when she was arrested the first time and she found out that she wasnâ€™t going to be released from jail on bail because the bond was too high. I am sure she was upset because this would mean she wouldnâ€™t be able to go out with her friends to party anymore.
The second time was when she stood by her bozo attorney, Jose Baez, when he made the announcement after the grand jury made their decision. She was continuously wiping her tears away. I have to admit that for someone that had no knowledge about this case might would have fallen for those tears but everyone knows she wasnâ€™t shedding tears over the death of her daughter, especially since at that time no one knew for sure if Caylee was dead or alive.
Now on Friday December 11, 2009 in court, which just so happens to be exactly one year to date since Cayleeâ€™s remains were found, we witness Casey crying in court. The prosecution was talking to the judge and giving a detail description of how they believe Caylee died. Now are we supposed to believe that Casey was suddenly having emotions over the loss of her daughter, or was she finally feeling some sort of guilt hearing the words spoken out loud. Or was it simple because she finally figures it out that she is going to be found guilty of killing her own daughter and she just might get the death penalty for it.
I donâ€™t know, maybe it is just me but I have a hard time accepting that this woman has a conscience at all. I canâ€™t help but wonder if this was one of the plans her defense team came up with to make the judge feel sorry for her. I wouldnâ€™t be afraid to bet that she was coached all along after all this time just how to turn on the waterworks to look like she was upset.
I personally see Casey Anthony as one that only thinks about herself. I know her parents want desperately to think their own daughter could never be a cold blooded killer but I think deep down they both know just what the monster they created is capable of and that scares them.
I guess we will all see when this finally comes to trial. I imagine they keep hoping by time it does come to trial the members on the jury will have forgotten all these details but I can say this much, as long as I am able to do so, I will keep this story in the news just so people donâ€™t forget what kind of woman Casey Anthony is and what we all think she has done to her precious little girl.
We will never forget Caylee. She needs to receive justice so she may rest in peace.
