Nancy Grace Defends Casey Anthony Comments, Says Jury Was "Absolutely Wrong"

by at . Comments

HLN host Nancy Grace could not believe that Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murder earlier this week, and she let the world know it.

Criticized by some for her outspoken views, even after Anthony was cleared in her two-year-old's death, Grace has only grown more defiant.

As the de facto TV face of the trial - and whose show received huge ratings - Grace steadfastly believes a cold-blooded murder walked free.

Having coined the derogatory moniker "Tot Mom" for Casey, Nancy Grace went off on her immediately after she was acquitted Tuesday (above).

Yesterday, asked if she went too far, she told the New York Post this:

"I feel the jury was absolutely wrong. I feel they went into this case with the mindset to acquit and not to have their minds open."

"For them to say Tot Mom was a good mother is astounding to me."

"The day Caylee died, before that day and for the months on end that 'Tot Mom' was out partying, staying over with her boyfriend."

"There was no babysitter, so where was Caylee?" Grace says. "Everyone knew [Caylee Anthony] was being babysat in a car trunk."

Grace, a former prosecutor and the mother of 3-year-old twins, knows that she's enraged many viewers with her outspoken views.

But she's not about to tone down the rhetoric anytime soon.

"I find it odd that people think it's bad to disagree," she says. "Why? We all have common sense and can add two plus two and get four."

"To pretend I don't understand the evidence ... I do, and it all points to [Casey's] guilt," she says. "Nobody has a problem saying O.J. was guilty of double murder. The facts indicate to me that Casey Anthony is guilty of murder."

"I am part of the justice system, and when it fails it hurts me personally and deeply to see a miscarriage of justice," she says.

"I believe that's what this is. The only people I'm happy for are [George and Cindy Anthony]; this is something of an ease to their suffering. They've already got a life sentence ... to have to go through this every day."

Grace was asked what she'd say to Casey Anthony personally.

"There's no do-over in our justice system, so I'd ask her to just try not to lie for a minute, and tell me why it had to be that way," she says.

"Other mothers are faced with much worse circumstances and don't resort to violence. Cindy would have taken Caylee in a heartbeat."

"Why couldn't that be? The one thing that is calming and soothing to me is that I know that Caylee is being loved right now and is in a place where her mother can't hurt her anymore."

Again, we gotta ask: Casey Anthony ...

The defense coven of witches and warlocks (a fitting allegory) cast their spell on the weary sequestered jurors when they told their "Grimm," explicit, EVIDENCE-LESS tale about a little girl being sexually molested by her father day after day before sending her off to elementary school. The raped little girl is now superimposed over the murdered toddler; the raped little girl is now superimposed over the face of Casey Anthony throughout the entire trial, blinding the weary, sequestered, disinterested jurors to the mountain of circumstantial evidence pointing to the child's mother as the killer. And the murderess and her cohorts live happily ever after...

watching you over the years have taught me a lesson about the law ..the saying that you are innocent until proven guilty is pure nonsense ... Casey was found guilty before she ever entered the court room ...when the verdict was not to suit you you become this evil person ..and turn it around to make you look good ..which it really shows what you are made of ...you always bring OJ in the conversation too ....you really like to put people down! you weren't there ... you are not the judge... jury get over it! and go home and hug your babies! ..and
