The final arguments are over and the judge read the jury instructions and now the jury has the case. It took a long time to get here, but now we all must wait to see what the jury verdict will be.
I thought the Prosecution final arguments were brilliant, especially using Casey Anthony’s own words to show that she didn’t care about her missing daughter just the number for her boyfriend. Boy did that speak volumes. Everyone is worried about Caylee except her mother. Casey was mouthing things as those jail house conversations were being played about the pool drowning and I wish I could read lips.
Casey, your days are numbered. Your lying days are over. Everyone knows you for what you are and no one will ever believe a thing you say. I felt sorry for her father, George, having his suicide note read in open court. He was so sad and lonely in that note and he wanted to be his granddaughter. He was not involved with this coverup as the Defense wanted everyone to believe in opening statements.
The Defense opening statements were gone. Their closing arguments were all about how the Prosecution didn’t prove that Casey did anything. All of the Defense Charts and long-winded arguments just put me to sleep. The Prosecution’s rebuttal was brilliant when they went back and said no one was driving Casey’s car but her. When they showed Casey texting that George had run over a dead animal right before she had Tony pick her up, it showed that she knew her car smelled, and she was trying to pin it on her dad.
Casey was in the corner and the Prosecution didn’t let up, and I hope for justice for precious Caylee who is in Heaven watching over all of us.
