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 seriously loooooove Nancy Grace. She was a lawyer herself, so yes, she does know. Casey's guilty as sin itself. That beautiful baby girl didn't drown by accident. I didn't buy that crap when I first heard it. The fact that she got away sickens me like no other. This proves why so many assume they can get away with so much these days...

Analysts say a total figure on the cost to the state and to the taxpayers has not been totaled, but the figure could be topping out at some $4.5 million. Here we go folks. So all the lawyers and judges get rich off of hard working Americans. The worst part is that not only will all the Lawyers and judges get rich off of this. But, The Anthony family and everyone involved will benefit monetarily as well. God Job Nancy Grace. You and all the media facilitate this bull crap by exploiting this garbage and getting rich off of it yourselves. There are no winners but all the losers I see involved in this whole case. That includes you Nancy Grace. You Whack Job.

It is not against the law to lie.
It is not against the law to party.
Marty Gronk messed with the crime scene. He could have put the duct tape on Caylee.
One search for chloroform was made after myspace boyfriend said something about it.'
Whoever said a body was in the car when Casey went out partying.
No drugs were found in Caylees body, so why do people say things about xanax?
To call her a bitch shows low intelligence and to wish her dead makes you attempted murderers.
Nancy Grace is still showing the murder trial on TV as if Casey Anthony was not ever found not quilty. Nancy Grace should be fired and have her liscence revoked. HLN should be closed down.

To the "on the jury", your an idiot. to anyone who believes this person, your also an idiot. Do you really think if this happened that of all places they would come to The Hollywood Gossip to confess this. No. Next, do you really think they would confess it on the internet? No. Unless they are just REALLY stupid and don't realize how easily they could be tracked. Someone has way to much time on their hands.

Many of these comments, along with "Nancy Grace"'s rantings, are a sad commentary on the level of intelligence in this country. If it were their daughter on trial for her life would they spew such vitriol and rush to judgment? This case was not even clear cut enough that the prosecution could convince twelve people of Ms. Anthony's guilt. Yet the Salem Witch Trial mentality has her convicted because of the media hype (yes I'm talkin' about you, Nancy) It is appalling that many of you out there think our freedoms and safeguards (and criminal defense lawyers) should be sacrificed because of one result. Stop and think for a minute, people.

Thank You Nacy Grace for standing up for what you believe. There is no reasonable doubt about where that masking tape came from, the Anthony's home, there is no reasonable doubt about that sticker on that tape it came from the Anthony's household too. I find it interesting that after all the partying for 31 days and all the lies and make- believe folks Casy Anthony has the right to live free from any criminal punishment, but you can believe that once a criminal always a criminal, I would keep my eyes and ears open for future mess ups by this "TOT MOM"!! OJ did it and so did she and we will all know soon, OH Yeah lets not forget the Aruba guy who waited a whole five years to murder another girl........waiting for the TOT MOM mistake and rest assured it will happen. Thank You Nancy Grace!!! Keep talking.

The shame of all this is the fact that someone just as Whack out as Nancy Grace will probably take action in their own whacked out minds. Then there will be blood on Nancy Graces hands. And the shame of it all will be that Whack Job Nancy Grace will probably be happy then. She is no better in my mind then the person who actually killed that poor innocent child. Someone needs to stop this madness and put lawyers, politicians, and the media in their place.

MSNBC is facilitating Nancy Grace and all of the exploitation that has caused so much anger in our nation. There should be laws that protect the privacy of all humans while in a court case. There should also be laws that prohibit any human from profiting off of any legal proceedings. That would get rid of our nations news medias who seem to be hell bent on making sure everyone who watches stays in a negative state of mind. Isn't it amazing how Lawyers have gotten us in to this mess. Yet they see no other alternative but to capitalize on any given negative situation to make sure that they ultimately gain monetarily in the end. IT IS COMPLETELY SICK !!!!!!
