Stan Strickland finally resigns his sad sorry ass

Stan Strickland, disgraced judge (and the other half of Dumb & Dumber) has finally done the decent thing and resigned his sad sorry ass. It’s a shame he didn’t do it a long time ago. Looks like he’s decided to bail out now, prior to the complaints & investigations starting. At least he got one decision right if nothing else…

Here’s the latest from WFTV.com:

Casey Anthony Judge Stan Strickland to resign

Team Casey file Emergency Motion (8/17) to stop Casey Anthony’s probation

As expected, Team Casey filed an Emergency Motion, Wednesday (8/17), in an attempt to stop Casey Anthony’s probation. The document was filed with the 5th District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach.

Casey Anthony Emergency Motion  081711

In the document, Casey’s Defense attorneys Lisabeth Fryer and Cheney Mason call the probation an “illegal sentence” – citing bias from the original judge in the case, and mentioning interviews Judge Stan Strickland had previously given to WESH 2 News (where he criticized the jury’s acquittal of Casey Anthony)…  the Nancy Grace show (where he stated he was ““shocked at the result of the trial”) – and News Channel 13 where similar comments were relayed.

You can watch one of the cited Strickland interviews below from WESH 2 News (July 11th) – “Former Casey Judge Talks Verdict, Jury”:

Former Casey Anthony Judge Verdict Throws Me For A Loop

The Emergency Motion also alleges double jeopardy and states Casey has already served her punishment for the check fraud case, and challenges Judge Belvin Perry’s jurisdiction in the case. The earliest the court will look at the filing is today, Thursday 8/18.

Unlike the jurors, Perry & Strickland’s agenda is not to weigh evidence and come to a judicially fair conclusion. Far from it. These elected officials have popular opinion to attend to – and that popular opinion is still screaming for revenge… and they plan to give it to them regardless of what the Constitution dictates. Unlike the jurors who have no political agenda to tend, Perry & Strickland are apparently free to impose whatever suits their fancy – and in this case it’s a bitter ongoing vendetta from Sour Grapes Central.

Casey Anthony’s Probation – Dumb & Dumber Strike Gold for the BS State!

Once again, stupidity and incompetence both rule and take center stage. This time it’s Judge Perry’s turn to make a farce of the law with his ruling on Casey Anthony’s probation.

Albeit predictable, I’m also disappointed by his decision to agree with Stan Strickland’s nonsensical complaint – claiming that Casey Anthony didn’t serve her probation for check fraud charges while in jail.

We all know she did. Florida DOC knows she did too. There are documents to prove it also. Both of these 2 clowns (at some point) swore to uphold the American Constitution. They have failed, yet again, to do so… and that’s the disappointing part.

Judge Perry is the very same guy that allowed & welcomed the prosecution’s fantasy forensics, junk science, flawed CacheBack data (remember “84 searches”?), the non-existent “heart shaped sticker” and a bunch of other BS into Casey’s bogus “Murder Trial”. That in itself speaks volumes for the integrity of Judge Perry, as does his latest ruling on Casey’s probation.

Let’s not forget… Judge Perry, in addition to being a pro-prosecution Judge, is also up for re-election in 2012… so pleasing the masses in Florida is obviously very high up on his personal agenda.

With further regards to Casey doing probation in jail, and if I remember rightly, The Laughing Guy himself (Jeff Ashton) suggested it and Stan Strickland took him up on it. Casey therefore has already done her probation as ordered. There are a whole bunch of lawyers and judges out there who also agree that Casey did indeed serve out her probation while she was in jail.

An almighty louse-up by the State of Florida yet again. The only right decision ever made regarding this case was the Not Guilty verdict.

I’ll leave you with these pertinent observations from CayleeAnthony.org:

It’s obvious that Orlando wants her to suffer on probation as retaliation for the verdict, but will Casey Anthony really be suffering? She’s on probation, she’s not in jail. Realistically, she’ll either stay with one of her rich attorneys or in a ritzy hotel suite. She’ll probably be living better than most of the people frothing at the mouth to bring her back. She’ll probably be dining on champagne and caviar, sleeping on satin sheets, watching high definition flat screen TV’s, relaxing on expensive leather sofas. If she’s in a hotel, she’ll probably have an ocean view. Does that sound like suffering to you?

The people in Orlando should just move on with their lives instead of prolonging the inevitable. She’s NOT going to be suffering on probation and in a year she’ll be released anyway. Why prolong it?

Plus, has anybody ever stopped to consider that possibility that if her attorneys appeal the probation sentence and WIN, the State of Florida will have not one, but TWO shiny, black eyes!

Here’s the summary from WESH.com:

Casey Anthonys Probation Dumb and Dumber

The next stop in the Casey Anthony Roadshow is the much anticipated Trial Costs hearing – currently scheduled for August 25th.

This is where the prosecutors want Casey to pay for being prosecuted on false evidence and pay for the decidedly shoddy investigation it cost to find it all.  The grand total has not been disclosed. Is there no end to this chicanery? Probably not. Watch this space…

GO CASEY!!!
