Does Cheney Mason Think the Tape Won’t Stick?

14 Apr

Defense attorney Cheney Mason, a man who is having so much fun defending his client he screams non-sensical phrases at local reporters while he attempts to escape their notice by hiding behind an umbrella as he flees the courthouse, granted an interview to a national news show which will air his comments this weekend.

A portion of the comments of Mr. Mason may be read pre-national television airing at the following link.

Interviewer: “Prosecutors believe Caylee’s killer asphyxiated her by wrapping duct tape on her mouth and nostrils.”

Mason: “No evidence of that.”

Mr. Mason distances himself from the belief of the prosecutors with the word “that”.  Mr. Mason does not like the theory of the prosecution.  Hardly a surprise as the prosecution’s theory deals directly with the method and means of the homicide of two year old Caylee Anthony, the victim Mr. Mason’s client is accussed of murdering.

Interviewer: “No evidence of that?”

The interviewer is probably thinking specifically of the duct taped coupled with medical examiner’s report detailing her opinion the child’s airways were blocked by the tape and causing her death.  The interviewer may also be thinking of the sealed photographs of the victim’s remains which were recently entered into evidence by the prosecution.

Mason: “No. That’s a figment of imagination of an overzealous prosecutor in my opinion. And we’ll enjoy dealing with that in the courtroom.”

“in my opinion” – Mr. Mason must notify the interviewer his allegation the prosecution’s theory is “a figment of imagination” is the opinion of Mr. Mason and Mr. Mason only.  Others have differing opinions.  Others have facts and do not rely on opinion.  Yet Mr. Mason, who should have an intimate knowledge of the case and the evidence, relies upon his own opinion.  Again, Mr. Mason distances himself from the theory with the word “that”.  Mr. Mason describes the “prosecutor” as “overzealous”, an indication of sensitivity as it is an extra and unneeded word which also reveals Mr. Mason does not believe the “prosecutor” to be “inept” or “incapable” or “lying” or any of a myriad of other words he could have chosen.  Instead, the worst description of the “prosecutor” which Mr. Mason can verbalize on national television tells the audience the attorney in question is passionate about his work and this case.

“we’ll enjoy dealing with that in the courtroom.” – Mr. Mason changes from speaking about himself to speaking about “we”.  Who is “we”?  Mr. Mason and his client?  Mr. Mason and Mr. Baez?  Mr. Mason and the referenced prosecutor?  We do not know, but we do know Mr. Mason makes yet another reference to his enjoyment of this case.  Where is his joy when speaking to local reporters?  Where is his happiness when he mumbles in the courtroom rather than projecting in the sonorous tones which he employs in interviews such as this?  Again, Mr. Mason slips a “that” in to verbally push the prosecution’s theory far from himself.  Why will Mr. Mason only enjoy “dealing” with the theory “in the courtroom”?  Does he not enjoy speaking about it outside the courtroom?  Mr. Mason has revealed he is uncomfortable with this topic even in this defense friendly national interview.

We have learned Mr. Mason is not having fun with this case outside the courtroom.

We have learned Mr. Mason’s defense of his client will rely upon his opinion, but we do not know if fact will play any part.

We have learned Mr. Mason believe the prosecution has more zeal to try this case than he does himself.

We have learned Mr. Mason had best ensure he continues to bring his umbrella to court, no matter how few clouds are in the sky.

    ok – I haven’t read yet but the picture says so much about Casey Anthony I had to comment on it. Look at her mirror Mason’s gesture – she is truly creepy

    The more I refrain from reading about this case, I saner I feel! You just can’t make this crap up. For the love of God….this is about a murdered baby. Ugghhh, I have a huge disrespect for the media now.

      Hiya Venice.

      I agree. Refraining makes me feel saner to. And I have refrained somewhat, coz it all p*sses me off. Seriously. I am sick and tired of the murderer, Baez and Mason. This murder case has dragged on long enough.

      Off with her head….LOL!

        Hiya Linda,

        This case is toxic, like Casey. Anything associated with her causes discomfort. She has so many victims; and I feel, as a blogger, that I am one as well. What a headache!

      • LindaNewYork April 15, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

        I think us bloggers should sue Casey and the entire Anthony family for causing outrage and headaches! After all they will be making lots of $$$, starting with the 48 hours show n Saturday, which I will not be watching!

    What i find compelling with not only Masons denial that the duct tape played a role but the experts that will offer-up charachter witnesses.

    With Mason indicating that there is no evidence that the duct tape was used as a methond of asphyxiation he does not disregard that the tape was there. We the people can all agree that there is not evidence that Caylee died of asphyxiation but we the people know that there is no other purpose for duct tape other than…right?

    Now, with the 2 defense witnesses who are listed as charachter witnesses and are Professional Mental Health (experts?) i am a little confused. In order to be acknowledged as a charachter witnees wouldnt you have to have a past relationship which can only be substantiated by KC and or family memebers that indeed acknowledge these 2 jokers and somehow insinuate that they know the Defendant and have spent time with her prior too her daughters dissapearance and therefore can vouch for her????? It seems to me that there is a photo album of almost every day going from June 15 with her at various bars, apartments and or various stages of undress and none of the people look like the charachter witnesses being offered up?? Therefore they are offering a professional opinion based upon knowing the defendant now not then…??

    Stop the Bull….LOL

      These MH experts apparently didn’t even question her person-to-person, but instead reviewed some sort of “deposition” of her & wrote their opinions in separate letters that were presented in court last week.

      I imagine the scenario went like this:
      1. bozo decides what he wants brought out, maybe with ann finnell’s help, maybe with dot sims’ help.
      2. bozo writes up questions to bring out what he wants brought out.
      3. bozo sends michelle medina to the jail to hand the inmate the questionnaire, & the inmate takes her time filling it out – or, michelle medina spends a couple of trips to the jail bringing her iPad & types up the responses from the inmate.
      4. the ‘work product’ (questionnaire) is handed or sent to each MH expert, for them to conduct their “assessment” & write a “report” to vouch for the character of the inmate.
      5. bozo makes a meeting with Cindy & her attorneys to discuss lying under oath about ‘febreeze’ & dryer sheets deposited in the stenchmobile, & the distractor of throwing Georgie boy under the bus, his taking the 5th, etc, & coordinates the defense strategy with the A’sssssses criminal def attorneys a/k/a foreclosure specialists.
      6. bozo leaks some stuff to the press, just not about Cindy being a surprise witness in the next week’s hearings, & bozo receives a hefty check from CBS in advance of the preview & airing of the CBS 48 Hrs “Travesty of Justice” episode complete with mock jury & still-onboard jury selection lawyer/specialist Richard Gabriel, JUST PRIOR to rulings on the admission of scientific evidence, jury selection location, & jury selection for the trial. jmho

    Mason is obsessed with the duct tape in the same way Linda Baden was and the same way Jose still is. They all know its presence ruins everything. It makes the murder personal and very much NOT an accident. It makes whoever did it a cold-blooded murderer.

    Just found your blog today! Love your writing style and you nail these stooges so perfectly. Excellent post and so are the 6 previous ones that I had the time to read today.

    Today was the 1st time that I had the opportunity to watch the live stream and listen to and observe Bozo in the court room. I was dumb founded! He actually was appealing to Judge Perry to limit the media’s access to the case & court room proceedings??? I know that he is a slimy, scheming lowlife and certainly no legal eagle but could he really be this stupid?? What other plausible conclusion could I arrive at except that he is terminally and embarressingly STUPID. At 1st I thought maybe he was doing this on purpose but that is not even sensible — for what purpose? I was gobsmacked and embarressed for him. I know nothing about the law, and even I knew that this would be a complete violation of 1st Amendment rights (Fl. & Federal) and the Sunshine Laws of Fl. Judge Perry has the patience of a saint, IMO. I’d like to bop Bozo upside his stupid head.
