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 ...

I believe that NANCY GRACE AND OTHERS IN THE MEDIA are taking this case too far, all that Nancy has done for 3 yrs was condem this girl had her gulity in the media, has incited the public with her views and continues today even though a jury of her piers has found her NOT GULITY AND SET HER FREE AS OF JULY 17th..NancyGrace has made more money off of Caylee than Casey every will. Nancy Grace should be off the air.

There should be a course taught in high schools on how not to be stupid when serving on a jury. Call it "How Not To Be Stupid In Your Civic Duties" class. Sandwich it between How To Stay Off Drugs class and How To Use Condoms class.

I have no doubt that Casey killed her little girl. There is an image that haunts me, and it makes me sick to think of it. That is, I have heard that Casey was fond of chloroforming Caylee so that she (Casey) could go out partying. Imagine how frightened that poor, poor little girl was of her own mother! Every time Casey came near Caylee at bedtime must have been absolutely frightening for Caylee. She must have known that bedtime meant that it was time for Mommy to cover her mouth and nose with a rag soaked in the stuff. How horrifying it must have been for that poor, dear little girl. All that aside, how did the jury come to the conclusion that Casey was guilty of LYING, but they completely overlooked the tiny little detail that she killed her own baby! What kind of logic is that?

We all know she killed her daughter, lets all hope that she meets with the proper punishment when she returns to the streets. Now I know that everyone that makes a living on the TV can't say this but I can I hope to see a bomb shell news break that she has met with the punishment the lame juiors failed to pass on her. RIP Caylee.
And while I'm at it I may as well say this I think the whole family are nuts if George had any guts he would be on the next thing smoking to get away from Cindy causes shes a nut just like her daughter.

I didn't really read all the comments. I just have one question to those who agree with the jury verdict. .... would you allow Casey to watch your children or grand children? I wonder if members of the defense team would be so gracious to her.

To Nancy,
I am with you 100 percent. DON'T back off. You are doing the absolute right thing. Thank God there are still people like you.
My heart is heavy for little Caylee and there has been no justice for her.

With duct tape & bags you threw me away. What more is there to say? Alone in the woods is where I was kept, for six long months & you STILL haven't wept. "Bella vita" that's what your tattoo said. Not a care in the world, while I lay dead. Every night Jesus rocks me to sleep and makes a promise I know he'll keep. "Don't worry, everything will be fine, for in the end vengeance shall be mine! I Still Love You, Caylee

MY BELEIF IS CASEY WAS RAPED EITHER WHILE DRUGGED OR PARTYING...SHE DIDN'T SHARE THE FACT UNTIL TOO LATE FOR ABORTION OR MOTHER WOULD NOT ALLOW IT..THUS THE TENSION STARTED...BELEIVE SHE TOLD LEE, HER BROTHER, THIS BIG SECRET--THAT WAS WHY HE WAS SURPRISED TO SEE SHE WAS STILL PREGNANT AND THEY SHUT HIM OUT. SHE STRUGGLED WITH HER MOTHER TO TRY TO LOVE THE CHILD BUT EVERYTIME SHE LOOKED AT CAYLEE, SHE WAS REMINDED OF RAPE AND WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY CAME--SHE SNAPPED---SHE KILLED CAYLEE TRYING TO KILL THAT MEMORY..THEN SHE CALLED FOR HELP IN DISPOSING OF CAYLEE AFTER SHE WRAPPED HER AND PREPARED HER FOR BURIAL..I STILL BELEIVE SHE HAD HELP GETTIN HER INTO SWAMP...CASEY WOULD NEVER GO INTO THAT AREA BY HERSELF SO GUESSS WHO SHE GOT TO HELP..LEE..THAT IS WHY WE HAVEN'T SEEN HIM LATELY.
