Inconsistencies Raise Concerns: Cindy and George Anthony Lie
Most lies that are believed are never questioned: Most lies hold up poorly under pressure.
"Lying doesn't mean that you're a murderer." -- Cindy Anthony
After researching various inconcsistencies and/or contradictions, I've formed my own personal opinion:
The Anthony family are liars. I do not know whether they are pathological liars or compulsive liars, but they are liars. The rotten apple (their daughter) does not fall far from the tree.
"He [Jose Baez] was actually going to come up either today or tomorrow and bring a couple of the videos I guess for me to watch from some of the news stuff that's been going on, I guess some of the talk shows. Just to try to update me on some of the stuff. Plus he wanted me wanted me to get a good laugh."--Casey Anthony, in a recorded conversation with her brother, Lee Anthony.
A good laugh?
ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER LIE
Although it may seem as if this case has more twists and turns than a rollercoaster, ask yourself: where do most of these new twists and turns come from? The media. More often than not, who's face is plastered in front of the camera? Law enforcement or an Anthony family member? It's a no-brainer.
I would recognize Cindy Anthony in a Yoda costume before I would recognize Yuri Melich or John Allen bagging my groceries at my local supermarket. All of these twists and turns are imaginary; much like Zenaida Gonzalez of the Sawgrass Apartments.
The Anthony family is not obligated to share anything with the media. Despite the fact that they have spokesperson to speak on their behalf, they continue to lie, smirk, and blame everyone but their daughter for this crime. If it were possible to weigh the tears that have been shed and the lies that have been told by the Anthony family, we would all have to go on a Lie-Free diet; that's all this family has been feeding us: LIES.
Are George and Cindy Anthony in denial? It would be difficult for anyone to accept that their child committed a crime against their own flesh and blood. Denial is one thing; lies are another. I do not accept, nor do I endorse George and Cindy Anthony's lies regarding their daughter's innocense. However, I can (almost) understand why they are doing it. Who wants to admit that they raised a murderer?
What I do not understand, is why George and Cindy Anthony lie about everything--things that do not help or hurt the efforts to find Caylee. Since the beginning of this case, the Anthony family constructed a web page that offered all of their contact information: phone, address, email address, etc. Since the time of Casey's arrest, there have been reports of threats.
Because this is such a high-profile case, (combined with the fact that they offered all of their personal information online) it increases the likelihood that they will receive threats from lunatics all over the world. Just as troubling as the threats themselves, is the fact that George and Cindy can not even be honest about them! If you do not want people to know that you're getting threats, don't tell them. If you want people to know that you're getting threats, tell them. Otherwise, tell the truth for once!
"Oh, we're getting -- we get threats every day. We get written threats. We get threats on our home phone. We get threats on our cell phones. We get threats on our e-mail. So the threats are out there."--Cindy Anthony, 8/11/2008
"The sheriff's department (and) the FBI are looking into this," George Anthony said. "Whenever you start threatening people with bodily harm, that's a problem." The Anthony family said they have received threats every day by letter, e-mail or phone. --George Anthony, 8/13/2008
"I haven't been getting any threats! Again, Who said that? Did I come out and say that? Alright. What did I tell you guys weeks ago? If it doesn't come from the Sherriff's department or from my mouth, or my son's mouth, or my husband's mouth, should you believe it? Have I lied to any of you guys yet? Okay." --Cindy Anthony, Video, 8/29/2008
THE KID THAT GOT AWAY WITH MURDER
Pardon the expression, but Casey Anthony is clearly 'the kid that got away with murder,' in both her childhood and her adulthood. Unfortunately, in adulthood that expression became a reality.
George and Cindy Anthony are essentially the type of parents that make you roll your eyes at PTA meetings: 'MY child would NEVER do such a thing.'
Fast forward a few years later: Their daughter is the only person of interest in their granddaughter's disappearance and they're still chanting 'not MY daughter' in unison.
THE ANTHONY'S PAST
How many times have you dialed 911 from your home? I bet your call summary doesn't top George and Cindy Anthony's.
Known for their outrageous statements to the media, George and Cindy Anthony have raised quite a few eyebrows.
Throughout this case, I'm sure that everyone in the world named 'Zenaida Gonzalez' has been looked at suspiciously. But the 'real' Zenaida Gonzalez, also known as 'Zanny the Nanny,' is ONE person. Isn't she?
"I'm not going to speculate on who I think has my granddaughter. These people know they are being watched. They know it," George Anthony told reporters. (Click the link to watch the interview).
Speculate? I thought it was Zenaida! People? Plural? What people? I thought we were looking for ONE person.
"There's more to this saga than what people are led to believe or led to realize there really is," George Anthony said.
Well, than why don't you enlighten us, Mr. Anthony?
George and Cindy Anthony strongly believe that their daughter is witholding information in an effort to protect Caylee Marie Anthony. This is absurd. If they believe that the person who has Caylee will harm her the moment Casey reveals information about that person's identity, than why did Casey NAME that person as Zenaida Gonzalez? Casey already revealed the person's name! She gave up the person's identity already.
"Anyone who knows Casey knows she'd do anything including sit in a jail cell to protect her daughter." -- Cindy Anthony, 8/11/2008
"Casey will get the mother of the year award for what she's done for Caylee," -- Cindy Anthony
