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, are you kidding me? In your client's case, there WAS A LOT of evidence of her guilt (bags, duck tape, smell, hair, etc). You were SOOOOO lucky that the only people's opinion that counted were part of a jury that DID NOT UNDERSTAND the meaning of REASONABLE doubt. That's all! In Amanda's case, there WAS evidence of SOMEONE ELSE commiting this murder. Your client ATTACKED through you the ONLY people that loved her. And they, like most of people watching this case saw the truth. Would you, deep dowm, support your child if you knew she killed her child? I'm not talking about a parent's love. They will always love her or the memories of who they thought she was... I think they gave much more support than she deserved... I hope you are prepared for your future loss, mr Baez... You can't always rely on luck !

There are two major differences between Casey and Amanda. Amanda did not falsely accuse her father of sexually molesting her and she also did not kill anyone. Why would George want to support Casey after the things she accused him of? I can't think of anything that would break a father's heart more than what Casey has done. The question isn't why doesn't he support her, it's how on earth could he after what she's done?

Biaz does not care about the truth Just as long as his side wins!! Pretty sad that its all about winning and not the truth. Mason said over and over how they won. They both make defense lawyers look like s****!! They both have no morals!!!!! I hope a day does not come when one of their family is a victim of a crime and that person has a lawyer like them and gets off!!!! karma is a Bitch.!!!!!!!!!!

WRONG, TMZ! They are both infamous, not "big celebs"! They are average-looking at best, not "hot"! They both are pathological liars. They both are skanks. They both had dumb, immoral juries to let them free. If Casey Anthony murdered someone other than her own daughter, then I bet her parents would be "supportive" of her, also! Hell is awaiting all these immoral lowlifes. I hate injustice.
