high road these days, a little less traveled? To those that do, find it morally rewarding…

Is taking the high road these days, a little less traveled?  To those that do, find it morally rewarding…just ask WKMG.

So did WKMG pull all the PDF documents regarding the Casey Anthony case from their ClickOrlando Site?  Were the documents ever on the site?  On the other hand, did they take the high road?  I decided to check for myself…

A quick search for a PDF version of the motion to amend and supplement motion to seal jail videotape taken in the medical facility” docs from the Anthony case just to if the recent motions filed by Ms. Anthony’s defense attorneys

Orange County Clerk’s t/d stamped 5.27.2009 17:11 pm, the motion was filed by Fax, per the Orange County clerk site – 407-836-2306 – the t/d of clocked in to reflect the actual date of the transmission (the fax shows 2.27.2009 16:13 from Baez Law Firm).  The clerks physical stamp shows 16:11 pm 5.27.2009 (red ink)

This is where the fork in the road comes to mind.  Who at the Orange County Clerks office, faxed the “Baez Motion on Casey Video” out of the Clerks office at 17:20 pm 5.27.2009, and to whom was it faxed to?  From script info from archived Google page shows WESH posted the document at 5:24:07 EDT Date: 5/29/2009.

To my surprise, WKMG is void of such documents.  The WKMG site did have links to their own videos footage, but the famed Document Dumps are not visible to my searches.  My search did find the recent 17-page motion to amend… on WESH posted the document around 5:24am on Thursday the 29 of May.  I did not find it on WFTV, so I had better not hear that familiar phrase… oh I cannot even bring myself to type it out.

Before the Casey junkies freak out, the links to the documents are still out there, but they are on private blogs sites.  Some of the private blogs offer the links to WKMG, I followed a few, some worked, and others were redirects to a blank error page.

Anyone want to offer an opinion as to where these links might be, or were they ever there?  The other TV stations in town, WFTV, WESH, and CFN13 offer a majority of these documents.

The WKMG site is also void of a link or tab to Caylee or Casey Anthony on their home page. The other stations have banners and tab link on their main/home page (Casey Anthony case, Calyee Anthony and Anthony Case).

Thanks for taking the high road.  I feel there is a ray of sunshine for all of us here in Florida, who depend on you and the state government to work together to insure unbiased dissemination of the stories that encompass or government at work.

p.s. I would like to see WKMG do a follow up to this –

On WOFL-Channel 35, Holly Bristow said there were “some pretty juicy things” in the motion.  What was most shocking to Bristow was several jail guards said Anthony,  not treated fairly on that December day and they felt uncomfortable about what they were asked to do.

So, are you happy now Mr. Ashton? [FYI -“…has never to have lost a death-penalty case.”]

So, are you happy now Mr. Ashton?  Not only is Andrea Lyons qualified, is considered and expert on Capital law and death penalty case law.

In 2005, she received the president’s commendation from the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers for her death penalty work.

“Professor Lyon has tried over 130 homicide cases. A former Cook County Public Defender in Illinois, she served as chief of the public defender’s homicide task force. In 1990 she founded the Illinois Capital Resource Center and served as its director until joining the University of Michigan Law School faculty in 1995.” The statement added that, “In 2000, she joined DePaul’s faculty and is now the Associate Dean of Clinical Programs.”

 It’s funny I used President Obama as an example..5 degrees of separation is powerful.

Even the President of the US is not DP q under Florida Rule of Crim Pro 3.112.  (Unless there is a void, if it’s the president rule that supersedes the FS 3.112 rule.)

The dp qualified attorney can have a vitae to match President Obama,

but if he or she has not tried a case in the state of Florida, they do not qualify under Florida’s DPQA pre-requisite/law. [Florida Rule of Crim Pro 3.112](759 So.2d 610). Amended July 1, 2002 (820 So.2d 185); Oct. 8, 2008 (993 So.2d 501).

p.s. – I wonder what her nickname will be.

btw- WFTV does not waste time on trying to make Ms. Lyon’s day memorable. “WFTV’s headline -the new attorney …stay tune and see what we dug up on her and what you need to know!”

I bet this was a hard line for Kathi Belich to say -”Lyon has very impressive credentials” and “is said never to have lost a death-penalty case.”

Kathi Belich’s is saying an extra pray tonight, WFTV reporter states Ms. Lyon’s was added to the case but has yet to file the papers and to be approved by the court.  I do not think Judge Strickland will go out of his way to please Ms. Belich this week.

old comment I made regarding WFTV and their bent view of this case-

Casey maybe a liar, a cheat, even a poster child for a 5150 PSA, and last she may even be just an average 22-year-old slacker.

These trait do not add up to some one who could carry out not only the crime it’s self, but to leave no affirmative trace for FBI and local FDLE to confirm without the phrase tagged-
 
1.      Materials are too limited to fully characterize, they remain suitable for comparison  exam, should suspected sources be located. (Drugs test on hair)
2.      Accumulation of material from different sources collected into the trunk over a period. Because they are intimately mixed, no source of this material can be determined. (Trunk)
3.      Did not originate from crime scene (soil shovel and Casey’s shoes. all of them).
 
Just to list a few reason why this is not a slam-dunk for the state attorneys office (hello Mr. Ashton)…
