    Jeff Ashton, George and Cindy Anthony, Book Deals/Non WS Members Can Vote

    WELCOME TO THE PUBLIC POLL FORUM ON WEBSLEUTHS.COM

    PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PASS THIS LINK ALONG ON OTHER FORUMS AND INVITE EVERYONE TO VOTE

    YOU CAN VOTE EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF WEBSLEUTHS

    The title of the poll only allows for a limited number of characters. The full question is below:

    "Do you think Anthony Lead Prosecutor Jeff Ashton has a right to write a book about the Anthony case more than George and Cindy Anthony?"

    There are rumors that Cindy Anthony may write a book. Nothing confirmed..

    On the other hand former lead prosecutor Jeff Ashton in the Casey Anthony trial has his book about the case coming out at the end of November.

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Imperfect-Justice-Prosecuting-Casey-Anthony/dp/006212532X/ref=as_li_wdgt_fl_ex?&camp=212361&creative=383841& linkCode=wss&tag=5336432693-20"]Amazon.com: Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony (9780062125323): Jeff Ashton: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51csmxMEj2L.@@AMEPARAM@@51csmxMEj2L[/ame]

    Some feel Jeff Ashton's book is inappropriate and others feel if one or both of the Anthony's wrote a book it would be inappropriate and would refuse to buy it.

    Casey Anthony writing a book has nothing to do with the question. It's only George and/or Cindy plus Ashton.

    The poll will be open for a week and then we will send out a press release with the results.

    Thank you for participating

    I voted "NO" because I think anyone can write a book on the case. I believe it's more of a matter in who the public is interested in hearing from. For me, personally, it's JA. For others it may be the ANT's. However, I suspect we'll prolly see dozens of books on the shelves by jurors, witnesses, and others.

    MOO

    Thats a loaded question. I went with NO because everyone and anyone has a right to write a book if they choose. Maybe I'll write one, lol.

    I voted no.
    Jeff Ashton has as much right to write a book as anyone does, but he doesn't have more of a right.
    "Life's splendor forever lies in wait about each one of us in all its fullness, but veiled from view, deep down, invisible, far off. It is there, though, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If you summon it by the right word, by its right name, it will come."
    - Kafka

    What I type here is mostly my opinion.
    I really don't care if my opinions offend.

    I voted yes because the A's book would be filled with nothing but excuses or lies. Jeff is telling the truth. I think that gives him more of a right to write a book. He dealt with the defense and the A's for the three years. He has more of a right than anybody to write a book about it.

    Now if the A's actually told the truth, then this would be more even. But they never will. It's always lies and spin to make Casey look better. And no one wants to read their garbage anyway.

    I think the question should have been, does Jeff Ashton have more of a right to profit off of a book than the A's do. Heck yes. No one should profit off of lies and spin, especially at the expense of their granddaughter. Jeff Ashton is going to honor Caylee and tell the truth, and that's what needs to happen here. I hope he makes more money than the A's will ever see in their lifetime.

    I won't be buying anyones book about Caylee. The gravy train is stopping at my house. How much and how many people is the death of this child going to benefit? It is wrong for anyone to make a cent off this mess. JA included. He was a state employee and that gave him special insight to this case. If I recall correctly he came out of retirement or semi-retirement to try this case. Seems fishy to me. One day after the verdict he takes his place on every talk show on tv. I don't like it. I won't buy a book. It just seems wrong coming from him.

    I like JA. I think he tried to convict Casey. It was his job for the state of Florida to do so. It just sits badly with me that he or any other in this case profit from it.

    I'm sorry if I am in the minority and I offend. I don't mean to. I am just sick of the Caylee gravy train being passed around.
    Admitting I am wrong is not in my nature, being wrong is.

    I voted yes because I want to hear the inside story. He put his heart and soul into this case and tried to convict Casey Anthony. In my opinion he's not making money off of the death of Caylee, he's making money off of a sociopath, Casey Anthony.

    I voted yes. Legally they probably each have the same rights,but JA has the truth on his side.
    I would not expect anything from the Anthony's to be credible.
    Always ,just my opinion

    Yes!

    I voted yes because Jeff Ashton has shown more compassion for Caylee than the grandparents, or her whole family combined. And for that, I must say I'm sorry for this beautiful angel Caylee.

    I don't know if "has more of a right" is exactly what I'm feeling - but I do feel his book would be more of an honest read. Cindy has lied to the public/police/herself since the day Caylee went missing, possibly before that, so why would I pay to be lied to? It was bad enough watching it for free - sure as heck don't feel like shelling out money for it.

    When Sharon Rocha wrote her book, it was almost a love story about her fight for her daughter and grandson. I bought one for myself and more as gifts. What is Cindy going to tell us? Not interested in anything she didnt' share with the police - as all of her "information" isn't going to help get justice for Caylee now. Atleast Jeff tried.

    THIS POST EXACTLY!!! You took the words out my head! Well, except for the "sorry if I am in the minority and I offend" part. In my RL, these sentiments are not minority opinions. And there's nothing offensive about thoughtfully and respectfully voicing your opinion.

    I vote "no" because I don't believe it should be a matter of a right to write a book. Anyone has the right to do so. I don't have any interest in reading any book by anyone involved in the case. If a book came out by a truly neutral party I might read it. (not Ann Rule, can't stand her books, lol).
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Jeff Ashton has several important factors to his credit that the Anthonys do not.

    1) Ability and willingness to tell the truth

    2) Morality

    3) Reality

    4) Upstanding character


    All of which qualify Mr. Ashton in a far superior way than they do the Anthonys.
    Casey says, “the b!tch knows what it feels like now,” referring to her mother, Cindy.
