Discussion in 'Caylee Anthony 2 years old' started by beach, May 25, 2011.
State just asked tony what did Casey have with her when he picked her up to go to the A's for gas, Tony said Casey had a backpack. Why didn't state ask what kind of backpack, a childs backpack or Caseys backpack?
So he is saying that KC did NOT stay over at his place or is he disputing the timeline?
Did Casey look at TL to see if he was watching her when she stood up? He was still on the witness stand.
From what I've seen so far, I am NOT impressed with Tony Lazzaro. His "nope" answers and his attitude has totally turned me off. He acts like he doesn't respect the attorneys during questioning.
Too much 'tude for me!
I am very concerned about the States case. They seem to be plodding along very slow and are very boring. They need to pick it up and make it more interesting. They are also making a big mistake by ignoring Baez' contention that Caylee was already dead. They need to somehow address this throughout the trial. Ignoring the defense's position and pretending it doesn't exist is a mistake. There may be 1 or 2 jurors or more that believe his contention. And if Caylee was dead and they admitte there was no zanny then all that they are trying to prove is moot. They need to adjust their case.
But he did clean up nice, that surprised me! Some respect for the court vs. the way Lee & Mallory, and even George dress for court.
Tony L was his usual arrogant self today. I just really don't like him. He seems to not be that much different than he was in his deposition, maybe only a little bit better. I bet he's not happy with having to come back tomorrow. I hope that doesn't affect his testimony.
Tony is making KC look even worse, IMO. He comes off as arrogant, uncaring, cocky, smug... and this is what she was attracted to and this is the reason she killed her child? If that were my daughter, I'd be horrified by her taste in men. If I were on the jury, I'd be horrified by her taste in men.
I think Kathryn and Aedrys both have good points. However, I believe the state's most damaging evidence against ICA is yet to come. We have to be patient.
MOO - regarding Tony. If memory serves....he was very, very upset with KC the moment he learned that something had happened to Caylee. He has been the most helpful, IMO, of ALL the players to the SA and LE. He cooperated fully immediately, wore a wire, had his phone tapped - whatever LE asked of him...he did it. Not one time did he speak to the media or give an interview or sell one stinkin' picture....He could have have good bucks in his account right now if he had. But...he is the one person, in this trial so far, that has been on Caylee's side.
I can overlook lots of things about his persona - just because of that.....Again, IMHO
All the stipulations take away from the effect of the state's case. I'd rather stuff be testified to rather than stipulated to.
That is very true and I commend him for that. However, his mannerisms leave a lot to be desired. He doesn't come off well.
First let me say I LOVE Mr George, but I find his questioning painful to listen to,he is not confident in his delivery and it's slow and painful,jurors will eventually tune him out if he keeps up with this low monotone delivery. We need some Perry Mason moments with voice reflections etc in his delivery,believe it or not,but jurors want to be entertained while listening to a case, I know I did while on jury duty,it helps the time go faster. just saying :twocents:
