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."

He is much more delusional then Casey Anthony herself! Never once did Amanda throw anyone under the bus! How does a parent support their child as they sit there lying in open court an accuse their parent of sexual abuse!

I wonder if TMZ and the other shows realize that when Baez, the Anthonys, or any of the other riff-raff involved in the defense of this baby killer are interviewed, I turn the channel. I cannot stand to look at them or listen to their voices as they make excuses for her abhorrent actions. I know for a fact that I'm not the only one. I sometimes read the latest BS as I have today, but draw the line as far as allowing myself to see or listen to sleazebags. They're losing viewers.

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

There's a big difference between the two. Casey killed her parents grand-daughter and then implicated her father in the crime.

WoW, shows us how not everyone should have the right to speak. A killer was sentenced in Amanda's case. Also in this day and age, you can't wash away DNA. Her's was not there and she could have left Italy several times but stayed to find the killer. Casey Anthony acted guilty and waited quite a while to start looking for her daughter. There are no other convicted killers in her case, only a car that had the stench of death.

Uh wait a minute...if I remember correctly Casey was the ONE that blew her parents off when they asked to see her after the trial. I don't see how he can compare the 2 families...but then who ever said all lawyers were "bright".

Her parents "hurt her case"....HOW? She was set free! There are no comparsions between Amanda Knox and Casey Anthony; other than what Baez concocts.

Maybe it's because knox didn't murder their granddaughter.
Perhaps it's because knox didn't falsely accuse her father of sexual molestation.
Could it be because knox didn't put her daughter into a garbage bag and throw her in a dump to be eaten by wild animals?
How dare he compare that skank murderer to knox!

Why is tmz giving that disgusting baez an open forum to spew his stupidity into the universe?

TMZ-why haven't you covered the story that baez went to south america and "purchased" his new wife from a mail-order bride company?? Now that's a story we are all interested in reading-not this drivel.

Amanda Knox & Casey Anthony have NOTHING in common!!! It is CLEAR Amanda had nothing to do with the murder while it is VERY CLEAR Casey DID kill her precious daughter!!!! These two names should not even be mentioned in the same sentence!!!

Amanda Knox did not throw her family under the bus! Amanda is NOT the psychopath, sociopath, narcissist, ugly, highshool dropout, lazy, trash, convicted felon, liar that Casey Anthony is. I hope Amanda makes millions on books and appearances and that Casey and Bozo make $0.
