I've been thinking and thinking about why the jury might possibly have believed JB's spin that George is the bad guy in all of this. I know that they didn't have access to tons of info that we have been listening to and watching since the beginning--the recorded police interviews, the depositions, the media interviews--in which we formed our opinions of George. I see him as a poor liar (meaning that when he lies it is almost always obvious), not an instigator (goes along with what Cindy says, as Lee implied that he does, as well), insecure about his own worth and concerned about how he comes across to others, and very emotional, with a strong attachment to his family, although not intimately involved with his family members. Because of this impression, this image I have in my mind of who George is, JB's theory seemed patently absurd to me. But if I had been a juror, and not known all these other things about him, how might he have seemed? And could my impression cause me to overlook some evidence? Many of us here believe he didn't tell the truth about what happened on the morning of the 16th, that he didn't *really* remember what Caylee was wearing or what anyone did. Perhaps the jury sensed that, too, and saw that as reason to think he must be hiding something about that day. I think a lot of people did believe Krystal Holloway over GA. If the jury believed that she was telling the truth about the "accident that snowballed" (which JB kept harping on during closing arguments), that could give them an idea what he might be hiding. He was very defensive and somewhat combative on the stand, which I think is understandable, but the jury could have seen as more evidence that he was guilty of something. The whole thing about "which gas can are you referring to, sir" was a kind of behavior I have grown used to in GA, and just see it as his way of not cooperating any more than necessary with someone he is angry at. But the jury might have seen it as strange and suspicious, especially since JB tried to emphasize the gas cans as somehow relevant to George's involvement. So I started to wonder--what if I am wrong and they are right? What if there was some sort of "horrific accident" (as the alternate juror described it), and he was scared to death about it, so he and Casey did hide the remains? Is there any way I could view his behavior differently so that I could believe it, against my already-formed impression of him? Could GA, after having engaged in this cover-up of an accident, have then carried out the other acts in an attempt to bolster his story--like the suicide note and the jailhouse phone calls and the interviews with police that all portrayed him as a man wracked with grief, fear that his daughter was involved, and horrible guilt about how he could have raised a daughter who would do something so wrong?
