Is Jose Baez a Blowhard?

3 Dec

After throwing his televised tantrum over the arrest of his client for check fraud, Jose Baez made additional comments to the press concerning the arrest in late August 2008.

Mr. Baez’s comments may be found at the following link:

Jose Baez: “This is nothing more than an attempt by law enforcement to play mind games with my client. They leaked the arrest to the media and deliberately avoided telling me so she could turn herself in in a dignified fashion. They clearly wanted the media to capture my client in the worst possible light.”

“This is nothing more” – We assume “this” refers to the arrest of Casey Anthony for check fraud, which is close to Mr. Baez.  The arrest is “nothing more” than something other than an arrest.  When is a door not a door?  When it is a-jar!  When is an arrest not an arrest?  When it is “nothing more”!

“than an attempt” – The arrest was “an attempt” and not an arrest.

“by law enforcement to play mind games with my client” – The arrest was not an arrest, but an attempt, which implies an unsuccessful attempt, to “play mind games”.  The client is Mr. Baez’s.  They tried to play mind games, but failed.

“They leaked the arrest to the media” – We assume “they” continues to refer to law enforcement, but we cannot be sure.  One of Mr. Baez’s favorite words, “leaked”, makes an appearance.  How did “they” leak the “arrest to the media”?  We do not know.

“and deliberately avoided telling me” – “They leaked” to the media, but not to Mr. Baez.  “They” did not avoid Mr. Baez by accident, but on purpose.  How does Mr. Baez know if law enforcement “avoided” him and how is he able to ascertain the deliberateness of the action?  We do not know, but Mr. Baez states his assertions as fact.  “Avoided” implies “they” had a duty to tell Mr. Baez, but we know they did not have such a duty.  “They” did not avoid by not informing a person they were not required to inform.  There was no requirement for them to inform Mr. Baez.  We also know from a previous article Mr. Baez sent faxes about the arrest to law enforcement the day of the arrest, so we know he was aware whether “they” told him or not.

“so she could turn herself in in a dignified fashion” – Mr. Baez is concerned about the dignity of his client, the same client who made nasty faces at her mother as she called her names during a jail visit she knew was public record, the same client who peed in a public parking lot.

Order is important.  It is more important to Mr. Baez “they” leaked to the press than “they” did not inform him of the impending arrest.

“They clearly wanted the media to capture my client in the worst possible light” – Who is “they”?  Again, we assume law enforcement, but who specifically in law enforcement wanted the press to see his client “in the worst possible light”?  “Clearly” is a verbal attempt to convince the listeners Mr. Baez’s assertion is the logical conclusion to be drawn from the events.  His need to add “clearly” indicates others will not agree with his assessment.  The police arrested Casey Anthony and locked her up in jail.  This would seem to be their primary goal.

What are the lights other than “the worst possible” to which Mr. Baez refers?  We do not know.  Up to the time of this comment, the public had seen Ms. Anthony arrested for child abuse.  Was her previous arrest in a better “light” than her check fraud arrest?  As we now know, Ms. Anthony pleaded guilty to the check fraud charges.  Did her admission put her in a better light than the arrest for the actions which she claimed as her own?

We have learned the arrest of Casey Anthony for check fraud sent Mr. Baez into an emotional frenzy during which he could not stop talking about how the police did not inform him even though they had no duty to do so.

We have learned Mr. Baez feels law enforcement plans their actions based upon how they will affect Mr. Baez.

We have learned Mr. Baez feels the arrest of Casey Anthony for check fraud put her in a worse light than her previous arrest for child abuse.

We have learned Mr. Baez feels the arrest of Casey Anthony for check fraud put her in the “worst” light, even worse than a possible guilty verdict in her murder trial.  Since she has already been placed in the “worst possible light”, she cannot ever be perceived to be in a worse position than the night of her check fraud arrest.

We have learned Mr. Baez feels it is possible to reclaim dignity after stealing your best friend’s life savings and refusing to assist in locating your missing child.

    This idiot Baez says Law Enforcement and the Media portray his trashy client in a negative light. Hell NO….only Casey does that! People who poke fun at Jeff Ashton have no class. None.

      It’s hard to be seen in a positive light when you refuse to help find your missing child.

      Don’t thank me. Thank Baez. He got out his crayons and wrote his childish note all by himself… then some poor clerk had to type it…

    Baez took on a job that he is not qualified to handle. That and his HUGE ego will be his downfall!

      If Mason doesn’t throw him under the bus first. His ego and Baez’s can barely fit in the same room together.

        I agree with you about the “Clash of the Egos” between Baez and Mason. BS: Did you happen to catch the WFTV raw video following the last hearing? I couldn’t help but notice….as Baez is walking alongside Mason and they are trying to “escape” the press (lol), Baez actually says something to the effect of “Watch it you guys….I have a Senior Citizen here!!!”. How interesting is THAT comment regarding Mason???!!! 🙂 Particular;y coming (on camera) from Baez!!!

        I did notice the senior citizen comment, but I was more interested in the fact Jose refused to allow Mason to answer any questions. Jose controlled the entire interview, but it looked like Mason was dying to throw out some verbage.

        Not to mention their client’s ego.

    Baez is not acting in the best interest of his client. Jose is furthering his resume so if he is NOT disbarred over this case he would qualify himself to handle another death penalty case solo, if one were to present itself.
    I still believe he has deals and will make money as a consultant to talk shows (not that he talks in any cohesive fashion, he DOES NOT) but the way the media is on this case even the Anthony’s dog would get face time if it had an agent.
    This is a very sad situation and Caylee’s own family are neither giving Caylee justice nor respect. I hope they charge George/Cindy. WHERE IS MALLORY’s DEPOSITION???? What is in the FBI reports.
    Judge Perry said no fishing expeditions yet those taxpayers in Florida are being taken for every dime the Defense can get. The JAC needs to get tougher. Require Mason to be at the mic when he rambles and yeah idiot who practiced 40 years who should know about a contract. What morons… doesn’t it all just make sense to make a better story line and book? It’s not about Caylee each person involved has their own agenda and it isn’t always pretty.

      It doesn’t ever seem to have been about Caylee. They all do have their own agendas. As for Mallory, I don’t know whether she did a deposition or not (she’s probably too busy matching up Lee’s tubesocks).

    • bullstopper December 6, 2010 at 2:57 pm #

      Good question. Even a police interview with Mallory would be interesting.
