Whoa! Did you hear the Casey Anthony defense's opening statements today? Wow, the death of little Caylee Anthony is at the hands of dad/granddad George Anthony. And not only did George Anthony (in my opinion, the only semi-sane person in the Anthony family) accidentally kill Caylee in the swimming pool. He also abused Casey from the time she was eight years old, aong with Casey's brother Lee. (Lee has seemed to be one of Casey Anthony's lone defender at various times through the three years leading up to the trial.)
Wow...the media had linked that George Anthony might be accused with the death of his granddaughter, Caylee. I thought it might be accidental, maybe by giving too much medicine, or even in a moment of rage. Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez says exactly how it happened is that mom Cindy Anthony left the ladder on the above-the-ground pool down. Father George Anthony finds Caylee drowned and then goes off on Casey Anthony, telling her she's going to go to jail forever for child neglect and that mom Cindy will be very upset.
Then, Jose Baez went on to describe a sexually dysfunctional family, which I really don't see the relevance. I do think that when women/men who have not been a true victim of sexual abuse use it as a defense, the judicial system is hurt and those true victims of sexual abuse are hurt. What immediately causes me to doubt Casey Anthony's story is the fact that, as the victim of sexual assault at the hands of two household members, why would she bring her beautiful daughter, Caylee, to live in the same house?
Have you been following this trial? Do you believe it? Why or why not?
