I voted that I'm officially in love with the State. They did a wonderful job, especially Linda's final rebuttal. She carefully packed it all up in a big box with dignity, honesty and factual evidence. The jury's decision is no longer a worry for me. Thank You Jeffrey Ashton, Linda Drane Burdick & Frank George! And, especially His Honor Belvin Perry, Thank You!

The Chicago Tribune has a story up (forgot to get the link) that describes today's closing as "devastating".

I thought I would be mostly teary, but Linda got me mad again-- mad at KC's selfishness, her brazen lies, and her gruesome treatment of Caylee! I was fired up.

:clap:

I thought Ashton did a great job with the science but that some of his characterizations of stuff beyond it veered more toward telling a story than genuinely connecting with it the way he probably needed to. LDB completely rectified that today though, she shined a cold, hard light on Casey and the choices Casey made. I think those were the most effective moments of the trial.

Jeff and Linda had three key factors to work with.IMHO The truth, the evidence and the buffoon JB as opposition. I think they melded all three components together well. Without an unnecessary over kill approach in the emotional department.

What amazes me is how bad JB is as a lawyer. He could not convince Casey to take a plea deal. That is his job in a hopeless situation. Which is what he had from the start.

Oh again Jeff Ashton was brilliant. I admire this man so very much.

LDB was magic! LDB was a tigress! LDB was on fire! I pity the fool who stands in her way!

LDB really p*ssed Casey off.

Baez knows his case is sunk.

LDB used Casey's own words to show the jury what she is truly capable of, and Casey's facial expressions showed anger...not sorrow, not regret, and definitly not innocence!

Unless we have a jurror who can't accept the truth, Casey will be held accountable for the intentional murder of little Caylee!

I certainly hope so. It would be the first time she's been held accountable for anything except those check fraud charges and even that I think she should do more time for.

Had to listen to HLN on the radio as I drove. Since I couldn't see ICA tell me how was her behavior and demeanor during LDB's closing.

I heard JB object about a dozen times and then finally he stopped. Think the judge shut him down so much he finally got the message.

Just listening to it on the radio the phone call from ICA to her mother,Lee and her friend were very very powerful and really incriminating to ICA. Tony, Tony, Tony.

So sorry that JB and ICA hung George out. It came across as a lame defense and so glad the State cleaned it up for George.

Ok please tell me about ICA.

Does anybody know where I can watch the video of the rebuttal? I missed it earlier today. I have the live streaming, but can't find video from this morning. Thanks in advance!
