I predict that KC and/or CA will have a "mini-stroke" when they read this motion. Reality bites. JMO
You know what? It is so very reassuring to know that us WSrs have been right on the money. From what I read in that motion, the State's analysis of KC's behavior parallels ours here!
I have to admit I could not exactly place the thwarted reference when you smarty pantses mentioned it. WHen I googled it and saw "thwarted by traffic" I remembered and LOLed. That is sooooo funny.
What a pleasure this is after reading all the trash motions that come from the defense side. Thank you Mr. George.
Neighborhood Watch is...
NOT the Vigilante Police
What does everyone make of the "little angel" in quotes in reference to Cindy looking for Caylee? Is that a pot shot? Or, I mean, was that necessary? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the SA, all of them, and this motion is a dream come true for me, but that one little thing, I don't know, it kinda hurt. Could they have said it another way? Or was it supposed to hurt? What do you all think?
I think it was also meant to point out that Caylee is an angel now, no matter how much Cindy protests. And yes, it does hurt because we all know how she became an angel, and it was a horrible death by the hands of her own mother, and the SA is not going to let the defense and their smoke and mirrors overshadow that, not one bit.
This is Cindy's wake up call. It's to let her know that no matter what she does in court to cya for Casey, it will be Caylee at the center of the matter, Caylee who was the innocent angel that deserved to have a life, Caylee that matters and not Casey, who doesn't deserve the air she breathes.

The state just fired a major warning shot across the defenses bow. "This is how it is going to go from here. We know where your client has been. We know what she has been doing. We know every lie she told, every dollar she stole, every bed she slept in. We know what her family relations really were. we know what they thought and did. We know who's fault this all is, and we will prove it under a microscope. Now would probably be a good time to truly have that soul wrenching talk with your client about her real chances and options. This is no longer a game in front of the news cameras. This is the murder of a precious little girl named Caylee by her own mother."

I didn't see it that way at all. They were directly quoting cindy's myspace, and I found it both very respectful of cindy's feelings (at the time she was missing caylee), and caylee, the true victim in all of this. As I said upthread, what I found most interesting about this motion is it's our first glimpse at how the state will handle cindy. They're quoting her, treating her like a hero (having the "dogged determination of a police detective"), while at the same time, slipping it in there that police detectives are doggedly determined. They're aligning cindy with "good" in this case, and I think she'll play right into their hands. I just don't see the use of the phrase "little angel" was a low blow, quite the opposite actually. They're putting caylee up on a pedestal, IMO. Funny how we can both read the same thing and come away with totally different impressions, huh?
Did the defense not understand that the SA were not saying Casey's tattoo, sleeping with Tony, etc. meant she was low brow and therefore a murderer? It was obvious to me the SA were mentioning these things in light of the info Casey volunteered - that she was doing her own investigation? Were the defense being obtuse on purpose, or did they really not get that? Who knows...
Justice for GEORGE!
I expect the same result from all three variations... IMO, HHJP will allow all but the Rusciano evidence in. This dog won't hunt, no matter what collar you put on it.
You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.
Be not simply good. Be good for something.
^ Yes, their approach with Cindy is to treat her with sympathy, kindness and respect and bring her back in line behind the truth of what happened with Caylee, the 911 Hearing showed how effective this strategy is with her. Brilliant of them.
What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist. Salman Rushdie. #JeSuisOlaf
I believe the "little Angel" reference was due to the myspace posting. I believe they need not have sympathy towards the grandparents, their sympathies lie with Caylee Marie. It appears they use Caylee's name more than anyone in that courtroom. This trial is all about Caylee Marie and the one who sits accused of her murder...everyone/thing else is collateral damage...Caylee Marie, front and center..JMHO
Justice for Caylee
See I still don't think they were being snarky because of the context of the sentence. They were saying how CA was pursuing the truth about the welfare of her "little angel". If they wanted to be snarky they would have said something about CA failing to go on searches for her "little angel". I don't know how to explain what I mean...it would have inferred that CA called her an angel but didn't act like she cared or something. I myself have a sarcastic sense of humor and can usually spot sarcasm and that just didn't happen here. In fact I found it touching.
It would not matter how SA presented it, if CA choses to believe they were being snarly she will do so no matter how SA put it into the context of their sentence. I think it sounds like "hey people, just focus on the real victim here". Clearly, though, it was meant to make an impact. CA had two choices, support her granddaughter or support her daughter. She can't do both. CA also stated many times that she wants the truth but when presented with the truth denies it is possible and then goes into coverup mode. LE/SA have only tried to do their job in investigating this crime. CA is the one who has made them sound like public enemy number one. SA has a tough job. jmo
All I know is I hope HHJP rules on these soon...hopefully today! Up in the news thread it says the defense is asking for money. Did they read the response and say oh ##$@ we better get some real work done?
I didn't find it to be snarky at all. Sometimes the truth hurts. The State's job is not to be nice. Their job is not to make the facts of this case any less painful. Caylee Marie is dead. Duct tape was wrapped around this poor babies mouth/nose area. She was thrown away like trash in the woods just down the street from the safety of her home. She was left out there in extreme Florida heat... Thunderstorms and a Tropical Storm that left behind record amounts of rain. Animals fed off of her little body, dragging her tiny bones over a pretty large area. 6 months of dark, lonely nights she layed out in those woods. There is NOTHING nice about what happened to Caylee.
ETA: An estimated 177 days she was left out in those woods (I believe she was thrown out there on the 18th or 19th of June 2008)
