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."

Baby Killer. What goes around comes around. There has to be justice for that poor little girl. That jerk attorney must be real proud of himself that he helped get a murderer get away with it.

i dont understand this at all. if i was on a jury, i knew the person was guilty, the state didnt prove their case,, well i for one would not have said not guilty, we would have sat in that room till that was a hung jury so the state could at least have another shot at her!!

Carter: Then you would violating the Constitution of the Unted States of America. Maybe you should move to Cuba or Saudi Arabia or some other totalitarian state.

They were toasting the money and fame they all expect from now on. I can't blame the defense team for being happy, but it's a shame their happiness comes with a murderer getting off, but that is the stupid jury's fault.

Celebrating getting a child's murderer off!! Really?!?!

It was all about "winning" and not "justice" or the "truth".

Disgusted by the jury system. Maybe Plato was right and the "people" shouldn't be trusted with to much :( Sad that this sociopath is going free. Those jurors were lazy and too dumb to understand the evidence. Several of them were criminals themselves...I guess she did get a jury of her "peers".

Regardless of why they were doing it or why he flipped the guy off (NOT unprofessional at all, by the way), people are still going to find fault with it because apparently the majority of people who take issue with it are complete and utter morons. If you had paid any attention to the case/trial at all, you would realize that there was no other choice but to find her not guilty. You people are the vile, disgusting ones. You speak of God, yet you are outright judging someone, when there is absolutely no proof that she did anything. Go review the case and please point out to all of us what the jurors missed that should have made them come back with a guilty verdict.

Republicans, all about the Constitution, yet they take away the rights of women and anyone not rich. They always have an excuse to impose the Constitution, why not really live by it and help this nation and the people that need jobs.

The lady on the defense must get really excited over the Constitution , as she was jumping up and down and yelling. The Defense was Classless and knew they had just freed a child murderer.

You people act like you know what happened to caylee, The people defending caylee didnt even know what happened to her. How she was killed. Stop acting like you saw Casey murder her child. You people are as evil as her. Judging and throwing stones at someone, when you dont even know what happened to the little girl. YOU WERENT THEIR. Neither was I, Who ever killed caylee has a guilty conscious and will have to deal with the concequences for the rest of their life. Casey wont be able to see her child turn 16 or get her first car or anything else. If casey did it she will regret it. But don't throw insults at someone. She Had her trail and she won her trail. Move on. Stop acting like you know everything, You just heard **** on the tv. You werent their..

Sign this petition being sent to the president of MGM Warner Brothers, Random Hose and several other parties, to prevent Casey from profitting from her child's murder.
