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

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."

As a non-American I can't understand why you guys are not more angry with the procesution, than the defense?

I read through the court case report, and it seems to me that she walked free more because of what the prosecution didn't do that anything the defense did. In fact the defense did very little (probably deliberatly). but the prosecution did even less, presenting no real evidence.

You people are realy stupid, keep saying its the justice system and ****. NO ITS NOT, they didnt have enough evidence to convict her. They didnt know what time the girl was killed(probably knew what month) and More other ****. So stop saying the justice system.

The funny thing is, You guys care calling the guy unprofessional, but you would do the same thing if someone was screaming at the people you work with. Its not their fault the other team didnt have any hard evidence to convict Casey. Get over it.

I can understand Cheney being upset by that guy, BUT, there were cameras there and Cheney knew it. There is never an excuse to embarrass yourself like Cheney did. Can't think of any other description than low class on Cheney's side. He was dealing with an idiot, didn't have to act like one.

I guess they're entitled to celebrate over a child's death if they want but they chose the wrong time and the wrong place to do it. They knew the media and protesters were right outside and they knew the restaurant had big windows so everyone could see. They were gloating and rubbing it in everyone's face. Flipping the bird in full view of the cameras was stupid and childish. I'd expect it from a teenager, not a full grown "professional."

They ARE disrespectful of Caylee. The defense team didn't kill Caylee, but they surely don't care about her. But, hey, her own mother didn't care.
Watch out, Mason and Jose. Look at OJ's dream team. Karma is a bitch.

The jury seems a bit slow-witted.
