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."

Baez is just doing his job. Like it or not. Casey will rot in hell. The difference between the parents relationship might have something to do with the fact that one of the girls killed their granddaughter. I dunno just throwing that out there.

There is a HUGE difference between these two women. Amanda was not accused of killing her parent's grandchild. There was nowhere near the amount of overwhelming evidence against Amanda as there was against Casey. How can you even dare try to make a comparison between these two women?

One big difference here....Casey Anthony is a killer and Amanda Knox is innocent. Shame on Baez. Is he a disgusting pig of a person or not???

Why can't Baez keep his toxic piehole shut!?! There is absolutley NO comparison between these two girls. I hope Casey's life and Baez's career are both ruined. They are both the lowesr s*** of the earth. My they never know peace or happiness in this life or the afterlife. I spit on them both.

Boo hoo he wants money. He's trying to make their cases seem exactly the same -- they are not -- so that Casey can make money because he knows Amanda's reception aready is vastly different.

Baez, the difference is Amanda Knox IS innocent. Your client is not. Because a jury didn't think there was enough evidence to convict (some of which now REGRET their verdict) doesn't mean she didn't do it. You know she's guilty, all you saw/see is dollar signs. You've done enough damage, there is still a tiny innocent baby that was MURDERED and her MURDERER is free. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Sad that Jose is STILL doing all he can to drive a wedge between this lying slut & her own family.

I cannot wait until Casey gets sick & tired of not having that 'bella vita' she figured she would have after she killed her baby. She'll wake up one day & realize she has no family, no friends AND no future & then she'll make Jose Baez PAY FOR IT!

If she could so easily throw her whole family & old friends under a bus... she'll have no trouble making Baez rue the day he met this sociopath.

Telling lies OR worse.... the truth about her slimy lawyer WOULD finally give her the attention & money she craves. The public hates HIM also as much as they hate the baby killer he loves.

Yeh, it's really nice how Amanda Knox' parents support their cold-blooded murdering daughter. It is just a matter of time until this deviant trash kills again.

Let's see....Baez waited 3 years then created the "grandfather did it" strategy which the Anthonys didn't support.... Yeah, I can see why he'd think they weren't supportive. Never mind the 3 years of public support they gave their daughter; they wouldn't throw themselves under the bus when he wanted them to, so they weren't supportive. What a slimebag.

First, Casey Anthony an "All American Girl"?!?! Bahahaha!! Since when are baby killers all american girls. Second, I guess that is what happens when you throw you your parents under the bus and accuse them of incest and complicity to incest!! Third, if I were Amanda Knox and compared to piece of trash, Casey Anthony, I would be really, really ticked!!

The Value of Casey Anthony's story = ZERO
The Value of Amanda's story = PRICELESS
Wanna be "Lawyer" Baez wraps the two of them together trying to attach value to his client's story, can't you people see that?

any normal parent would have difficulty/moral issues in supporting their child who they believed to be responisble somehow for the death of their grandchild- makes sense the Anthony's wouldn't stand behind their daughter
....the Knox family- they truely believe (and hopefully are correct) that their daughter is innocent and was railroaded, so it's a no braianer that they would be supporting her-

Baez is despicable. He is the one who should be put in prison for liable and miscarriage of justice. This guy is a gutter crawler.
