Tap Dance

In the movie Chicago, the Lawyer Billy Flynn, played by Richard Gere is you’re a-typical conniving Attorney.  He will do anything do get his client off, including casting off suspicion onto the prosecutor, as seen in the video above.

So, what does this have to do with anything? Well, it appears that Jose Baez, the Defense Attorney is the real life, contemporary Billy Flynn.  He waited until the trial started to give the defense in his opening arguments that Caylee Anthony had drowned in the family swimming pool, and that Casey’s father knew.  Yes, this does give reasonable doubt, except that during Direct Examination and Cross Examination, Casey Anthony’s father denied knowing about the alleged drowning.

The problem with all of this is that, were it all true, why did no one come forth when Caylee drowned?  An accidental drowning is not a crime, even in Florida.  Hiding the body?  Well, that’s another matter, but certainly not worthy being strapped to a gurney and having a cocktail that would make the most steadfast addict swoon.

Casey maintained before the trial that it was a nanny, Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez who took her daughter. Why change the story all of a sudden?  It smacks of desperation on the part of the defense, knowing that Fernandez-Gonzalez is suing for defamation of character.

The latest effort by the defense is to have Anthony acquitted by Bench Order because Vasco Thompson, a convicted kidnapper has contacted George Anthony, Casey’s father, on Mr. Anthony’s cell phone.

I have no opinion on this last bit, as it could be genuine, though with the way this defense team is acting, it would not surprise me in the least if money had changed hands.
