Casey Anthony's Lawyer: We TOASTED Because ...

7/8/2011 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense lawyer tells TMZ ... his team popped bubbly and raised their glasses after the not-guilty verdict because "We have a long-standing tradition; we toast to the Constitution."

TMZ spoke with Cheney Mason -- the guy with the beard -- who tells us his team decided to hit the Terrace 360 restaurant across the street from the courthouse Tuesday because, "We were celebrating saving Casey Anthony's life."

Mason also defended his use of his now infamous middle finger salute that day -- telling us it was directed at a "guy from a radio station who has been stalking my team for months."

Cheney says, "He was yelling at the ladies on my team, 'Are you on your period?' and he was also calling them 'baby killers.'"

"This guy was outside and pounding on the glass and I flipped the son-of-a-bitch off, and I'll do it again!"

Cheney states --  "It was an expression of my first amendment right."

Cheney Mason & Jose Baez are both unprofessional dbags. Jose had to be told repeatedly to stop touching and hugging Casey Anthony o_O .. They just lucked out because they managed to assemble the dumbest jury in Florida.

i guess the defense doesn,t have morals , maybe that word isn,t in their language, i don,t see why they celebrate the constition when they made a mockery of the legal system, i hope they feel really good about what they have done, letting a muderer out . i hope that muderer never has another child , she will do the same to the next one too. i hope she rotes in hell. maybe someone when do the decent thing and do something so when gets to hell no one will have to anything to her. may you go to hell casey, that is where you belong. baby killer.

They celebrated making a mockery of the Constitution! Al Pacino in the movie The Devil's Advocate loved partying after winning a case too.

If it's true what Mason says then I can understand his frustration but he knew cameras were all over the place and should have shown more restraint. Especially since it's right after their "victory" and seeing that the public was outraged.

So right after Cheney Mason chastises lawyers going on TV and being unprofessional about stating their opinions on the trial he goes to a bar and sticks his middle finger up... I don't care who he did it to...

I am wondering if the prosecution will come up with more charges on the day Casey is to be released....such as not reporting a death, failing to dispose of a human body properly, rendering an indignity to a human body etc......I cannot believe that she has not been charged with anything like this and I wonder if these charges were held back because they knew their case was weak.

This whole situation is sad! I know these people had a job to do, but who in their right mind could toast to winning this case unless it was to put this worthless bitch back in prison for the rest of her miserable life? There was absolutely NO JUSTICE!!!! I hope Casey see's that poor babys face every time she closes her eyes!!! May you rot in hell!

Miller said it best 12 Morons judging another Moron lead by a team of Morons...Common Sense beyond a reasonable doubt is outlawed in Florida unfortunately..Common Sense is no longer Common..They have convicted people with NO BODY Found...but they couldnt convict her who was the last one that saw her alive...Pathological liars believe their own lies..

The true "colors" of the Defence Team could not stay hidden for long. Somthing is WRONG here, he's says his Arm/Finger ACTIONS are because someone was banging on the window...yet HIS CLIENT gets HUGS/praise from HIM for hiding the death of her daughter, lieing to police, and throwing her family under the bus? TRUE Character DOES-NOT stay hidden...that goes for Casey and also her attorneys!

Jurors 1-12,

Did you really think this self centered devil would spend almost 3 years in jail for a father that molested her?? Come ON??? Did you even listen to any of the evidence?? You just gave her a blank check for the murder of her little child!!! Hope you can sleep at night....
any of you need a NANNY? Casey needs a job!!!!
