Casey Anthony's Attorney

Kudos to Amanda Knox's Parents

For Supporting Her

10/10/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Knox
Casey Anthony and Amanda Knox have a lot in common -- they were both recently freed from jail, they're both big celebrities now and they're both hot. What they don't have in common ... supportive parents, at least according to Casey Anthony's lawyer.

Jose Baez tells TMZ he was very happy for Amanda Knox and her family when the verdict was overturned. Baez says he watched the verdict and it was " a very surreal moment for me because I remembered being in that situation -- where a young woman's life hung in the balance -- and in a split second, her life was given back to her."

Baez says he felt Amanda's family played a key role in things, saying they should "be applauded" for sticking with her through the entire process -- unlike Casey's parents, who did not support her and instead, he feels, "hurt her case."

In the end, Baez says they're just a pair of "all-American girls."

O....M....G.... r u friggin kidding me?!?!?!?!? What a piece of sh** that Baez is. They may both got away with murder but one was their own child who threw her own parents under the bus with lies, how the hell can a parent be supportive when their child is accusing them of all kind of horrible inspeakable things. Both of u r LOSERS!!!!!! Thats whats wrong with the world today....complete stupidity. UGH!!! How frustrating.

Baez has never appeared to be very bright just lucky. Now I gotta start calling him Bozzo for this statement. It was Baez himself who destroyed that family and there is no comparing the two, Casey did absolutely nothing with her life and she at the least threw HER dead DAUGHTER in the fields to rote and would continued having a ball to this day if her parents had not reported the helpless grandaughter missing. HUGE DIFFERENCE .... HUGE

Can't this a$**** keep his big lie spewing pie hole shut? Everyone HATES Casey, wish she would just fall off the face of the earth. These two cases have nothing in common, neither do Amanda Knox or Casey Anthony, two polar opposites. Amanda was railroaded in a foreign country when obviously the black guy killed her roommate (big surprise?) whereas we have Casey skank Anthony who MURDERED her own BABY. stop trying to draw parallels, there are NO similarities. Nobody gives a **** about Casey. Eff her, EFF YOU, Baez you P.O.S.

I have to join in and say the comparison between Knox and Anthony doesn't exist. They only thing they have in common is they are both female. That's it. Now the Kercher family is going to SUE Amanda Knox. For what? I just hope Amanda doesn't go back to Italy and hope her boyfriend comes to the U.S. soon.

BIG difference between Amanda Knox and Casey Anthony. Casey's parents have a reason and the RIGHT to act the way they do. Baez needs to SHUT THE H*LL UP!

Baez is looking for publicity. He is a POS whose money train fell through, and his client is no longer newsworthy. I think he should hire C Anthony as a babysitter.

High School dropout, uneducated, unemployed, liar, thief and last, but not least, murderer - not my idea of an all American girl. Mr. Baez if Casey is your opinion of the "girl next door", I wouldn't want to live in your neighborhood.
