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."

So Jose Baez felt that since CA's parents didn't support her, let's claim her father and brother sexually abused her and that the dad helped bury the child.

I am so pissed off right now I wish Baez was in front of me so I could 'f' him up. First of all Mr. Baez, you further destroyed that family by making up lies about Casey Anthony's father molesting her to confuse the jury. So yes dude, you set-up the perfect situation for her family to not support her. Secondly, how dare you compare a mother that would murder her own child to Amanda Know who was in the wrong place at the wrong time in another COUNTRTY! Americans aren't so popular around the world so I'm sure it was very easy for them to frame her for something she didn't do. You know Casey killed her kid and covered it up and you helped her go free so you're as guilty as her now. S***.

Apples and Oranges. Amanda didn't murder their grandchild; discarding her like trash. She "only" killed her room mate. HUGE difference.

Jose loves the spotlight doesn't he? Just what the world needs ... a male Gloria Allred or Nancy Grace! They've never met an ambulance they won't chase or a camera they won't mug for!

Amanda is nothing like Casey the high school drop-out child killer.. Amanda was falsely accused by crooked prosecutor & real killer in prison even though she had solid alibi & no evidence against her; she's a college student not a murderer. jmo.
Overwhelming evidence that Casey murdered Caylee. But juror Jennifer Ford said jury instructions were not read nor evidence considered; verdict based on Bozo's opening statement, which is not evidence per jury instrux that they didn’t read. Jury failed, Casey is an acquitted murderer. Amanda not a murderer, was wrongly convicted but exonerated. jmo.

A couple of all American Girls?
I don't know one all American girl that has killed their child! I'll bet the Knox family cringed when he made that statement.
Here's an idea Baez... STFU and go away!

Bozo Baez is delusional if he thinks Casey Anthony's father should be supportive after Casey lied about him during her trial & tried to insinuate that he had known that the baby was dead & helped bury her. Mr Anthony would be an idiot if he supported his daughter after her damning testimony of him in Court.

JB no one cares about you, quit trying to compare Amanda Know who was innocent to your client who is a child killer. No one will forget that. I wish TMZ would quit posting her name, let her rot in hell.

Casey Anthony is a lot hotter than Amanda Knox. I'd love to see the two of them get together and do a spread in Playboy or heck, even just do an adult movie together. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Amanda Knox was did not kill her parents grandchild you jackass!! Baez is a real piece of work. Anthony's parents have stood by her more than I would stand by either of my daughters. I have 4 grandchildren and if it were that obvious one of my daughters killed one of them I would NEVER stand behind them like they did, especially her psycho mom!!! Rot in hell with that murderer Bozo!!!!!!!!!
