Casey Anthony's Lawyer FLIPS OUT

7/7/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense lawyer had one hell of a message for reporters and spectators Tuesday ... in the form of an extended middle finger.

Attorney Cheney Mason -- who worked alongside Jose Baez -- shot the bird to a crowd outside an Orlando restaurant Tuesday while celebrating the not guilty verdict with the rest of his team.

UPDATE: The Associated Press had reported that a complaint was filed against Cheney with the Florida Bar Association over the gesture ... but the AP has now WITHDRAWN the story ... after a Bar spokesperson said the report was false.

Yes Cheny that was the message the defense team and Casey Anthony has given the people of Florida. Be proud, a killer got away with her baby's death.

Mason is a complete ass. At least Baez showed a little class yesterday when he gave a statement and acknowledged the State attorneys as being worthy opponents. The State did the best it could with what it had. But seems to me that the jurors have convicted George on zero evidence. Not one witness took the stand and said they saw the family as dysfunctional. No friends, neighbors, former teachers or extended family members. The jurors based their opinions of George on nothing but the word of Baez. This sets a precedent in that now all anyone has to do is have their lawyer say I was abused boo hoo .......... wELL I was abused as a kid for several years, I haven't killed any of my kids and if one accidentally drowned I would have scooped up screaming for help and desperately tired CPR until paramedics arrived. How many toddlers die of accidental drowning in Florida every year? How many are duct taped stuffed in bags and thrown in the swamp? How many of those parents gone on a 31 day party ?

NO JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE

Mr. Mason is the classic Florida "pecker-wood" redneck...seriously...he is cracker all the way.

The beard and the Alpha personality are also indicative of spousal abuse at least on a verbal and controlling level.

Booozy eyed and angry! This gesture is more about his daily AM hangover and disdain for tropical heat.

Boozy, mean and not fond of black folk.

Hope he doesn't sue me!

All right, Mister Lawyer, we get it. Once again, we the people get the old eff you because you sometimes defend guilty people and get them off. Hope you enjoy eternity in Hell.

Apparently, defense attorneys are vile until such time they are needed by the very people vilifying them. Gotta love that hypocrisy! Hope the Florida TMZers keep their noses clean...
