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."

does he forget all the lies they told for the skankHo?
does he forget HE'S the one that forbid skanky from letting them visit? does he forget HE'S the one that DESTROYED the relationship BT father-daughter by his outrageous accustaions?

What a crock of s...! Baez is totally crazy. Casey's parents did try to help their daughter and just wanted the truth as to what SHE did to her daughter, which in my opinion is kill her and bury her in a hole in the ground.I also believe that Amanda did have something to do with the murder of her friend and that she should thank her family and her lucky stars that she is a free person today. As Nancy Grace stated I hope she will take this second chance she is given and make it count for her and her family.

Jose Baez, an self-proclaimed black belt, is now offering $100,000 to anyone who can beat him up. The challenge is yours America.

What is wrong with you Amanda supports? Are you as morally bankrupt as she is? Both Casey and Amanda are despicable, sorry sad excuses for human beings. They are murderers and both families supported their daughters killing another person. Just because they were found not guilty by a bunchh of idiots does not mean they never killed those people, they just got away with murder. Amanda is far worst than Casey in my opinion because she enjoyed killing that girl and has no remorse(yes, she did it). Stop saying she is innocent,she was never found innocent, just not guilty, not the same thing.

Jose Baez is seriously sick in the head. Did Amanda Knox lie and accuse her father of molesting her? Did she throw her family under the bus? Does chubby little Baez think the world around him is stupid? He's getting ready to do his best to free yet ANOTHER killer. Some rep.

There is NO comparison to parents who defend an innocent daughter, and parents who know their daughter had something to do with their grandchild's death!

For Bozo/Baez to compare his client, who is obviously a sociopath, to Amanda Knox, who was prosecuted by a publicity-seeking disturbed man, is disgraceful. Amanda Knox has loving, caring parents and a terrific defense team. Baez/Bozo had a jury who didn't want to be there, was anxious to leave and I don't know how to describe them. I truly feel great sympathy for the Anthonys for the loss of that adorable girl, but Cindy Anthony is in denial, at the very least. I could go on, but suffice it to say,

TMZ:Take Note:
Jose Baez is not worth the time you give him.Cases are NOT WORTHY RE:PARENTS supporting the accused daughter.
Knox made NO LIES about ficticious people.No searches for how to kill or put to sleep a child.She WAS SUPPORTED BY NUMEROUS friends THAT ARE REAL!Knox called 911 upon finding the murdered victim,did NOT WAIT 32 days til her mama demanded to know what was going on.Knox made no false/unproven allegations that her father buried the victim,nor did she say she was sexually abused.
BAEZ:Barely graduated law school..barely passed the bar exam and only AFTER paying monies for failure to step up and pay his contracted child support.

Ok is he talking about the same parents that lied and covered up evidence, the mother that purjered herself on the stand to protect thier daughter. Or maybe the father that HE accused in open court of sexually abusing his client. Baez as usual you are trying to spin the truth on your skanky ass client so you can still try to use her as your cash cow.

There is a big difference between Casey and Amanda...Amanda did not kill her roommate and her family and American knew it...Casey killed her little girl and her parents and the whole world knows that...big difference.
