Crazy Night In Oakland Following The Zimmerman Verdict

Last night George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Protests were expected all over the United States.

San Francisco had a peaceful march through the Mission District, but leave it to Oakland to leave peaceful behind and start rioting, breaking windows and leave Downtown Oakland looking like a war zone.

Here are some pictures from last night in Oakland. They broke windows, spray painted “kill Zimmerman” and destroyed a BART cop car.

Casey Anthony’s Bankruptcy Hearing In Tampa, Florida

WESH News

TAMPA, Fla. –

returned to the public eye Monday after about a year and a half since a jury found her not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter.

A judge ordered Anthony to attend a bankruptcy hearing with her creditors Monday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. in Tampa.

Anthony arrived at court in a black SUV, wearing black hat and overcoat. Attorney Cheney Mason led her to the front doors while throngs of photographers snapped
photos.

A source close to the case told WESH 2 News that Cheney Mason was supposed to arrange a security detail to lead Anthony through a
hidden entrance. The arrangement was changed and she was walked through the front door instead.

The source said Anthony was crying and very upset after her arrival.

One protester yelled “baby-killer,” as she made her way into the federal courthouse.

Last week, the judge denied a request to move the bankruptcy case to Orlando.

In court, Anthony sat between her three lawyers and answered questions calmly to the bankruptcy trustee.

Anthony testified she only has $484 in cash to her name, and that since her acquittal, Jose Baez gave her $3,400. She also said that Baez had her participate in photographs in
September 2012 and then sold the photos.

Anthony said she has not had any movie, interview or book offers, although her lawyer Charles Greene said that she had offers three weeks ago.

During the 40-minute court session, it was revealed that the debt of $500,000 to Baez stems from an original retainer agreement with him, but she said she doesn’t believe she still owes him.

Anthony told the trustee, “I don’t pay rent. I don’t pay utilities. I live off the kindness of those I’m living with. I try to contribute when I can.”

She also told the court she had no car, no job and no diary.

The reason she decided to file for bankruptcy is because Anthony said there was delay in the trial with her and Gonzalez, and that she needed closure.

The session became tense when Zenaida Gonzalez’ attorney, Scott Shuker, turned the session into an apparent cross examination.

Shuker protested that Greene coached Anthony on what to say, and Greene responded, “Take a breath.”

“It’s not about taking a breath. What you are doing is improper,” said Shuker.

After the session, Shuker said that Anthony’s answers do not “pass the smell test.” He said his next step is to take a deposition of her.

Gonzalez’ attorneys said they oppose her want to discharge her debts.

Neither Anthony’s parents nor Baez were in court Monday afternoon.

Attorneys for Gonzalez and former meter reader Roy Kronk are both suing Anthony. Her bankruptcy filing effectively blocks the two lawsuits from moving forward.

Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom.

Casey Anthony: Center Stage Again

Casey Anthony Saga Continues

Lifetime Movie: “Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”
With the Lifetime Movie coming on soon, True Crime With Aphrodite Jones on Investigative Discovery channel is putting in their two-cents.

I believe Casey should take a long walk off a short pier, and she got away with murder. Giving this obvious attention seeking whoreish behavior attention is sort of like giving your 2 year old a sucker after they threw a 30 minute tantrum.

Jones says she’s

“trying to understand the verdict.”

She goes through the various lies Casey told and interviews Casey’s lawyer Jose “Bozo” Baez. I’m not sure what I’m more queezy about: Casey’s lies, Baez interview or the seriously awful reenactments.

Baez says Casey lived in a fantasy land, and if your 3 years old with imaginary friends that’s ok, but in her case it just wasn’t. Well hello captain obvious!

Some interesting pieces of info for you:

-Baez graduated law school in 1997, but wasn’t accepted into the Fl bar until 2005. In part this was for failure to pay child support.

-Caylee’s body was found less than 1/2 mile from the Anthony home.

-Baez said because he “got to know Casey” he believes “parts of her story.”

-Judge Strickland, who had to recuse himself from the case said he does not believe the case was overcharged.

-Baez said his biggest fear was losing Casey to the death penalty.

-Alot of people believe Baez was not equipped to defend Casey.

-The duct tape found on Caylee’s mouth was manufactured in Ohio and found in the Anthony home.

-Baez believed “the smell evidence” was junk science.

-Baez says this about the day Casey told him “the truth” about Caylee dying (drowning in the swimming pool) : She wanted to tell me so bad. When she did I could see she felt relieved. We locked eyes and she told me point by point what happened. It was a different Casey that day. She was bearing her soul.

-Part of the reason she was acquitted: We don’t know how Caylee died.

-After the verdict Baez says “he saved her life.”

-Jones says after analyzing this case, the jury made the right choice, but shes still angry when Casey is back in the media.

-January, 2012 a video diary “leaked” onto the web. Baez claims it was accidental.

-“So many “secrets” in that family, its believable that George may have been involved.” Quote from Jones.

Interesting perspectives.
