Anthony Trial Live
June 3, 2011 by USA Post
Anthony Trial Live, Mel and Sharon Gilbert, a former partner in Orlando, sat down on graffiti Junktion in College Park in Orlando Thursday to enjoy their lunch while watching the Casey Anthony case live deployment on a large flat screen above the table.
“We have to record at home, but still wanted to see him live at lunch”, 66 years old, Mel Gilbert, said. “We have been interested in this case for years and loves to see the lawyers and the testimony of witnesses.”
Throughout Central Florida, the witness and the desire to see every moment of it are trapping more and more like the Gilberts. So line up to try a dozen of the dozens of public steps to a seat in the courtroom, they see on television screens in restaurants or beauty salons, digital capture live streams in the office or Twitter follow up on their mobile devices.
“I can not do anything at work because they keep track of Twitter on the iPhone, but not the voice of all,” joked Jason Goren, a receptionist at a salon Hair Fashion Square Mall. “I’m not the only good. All clients talk about is Casey, Casey, Casey!”
Officials from the Orange County court said the number of people lining up before dawn every day has come and gone since opening statements began on 24 May.
“I think the number of online viewers depends on who you think is going to testify that day,” said court spokeswoman Karen Levey. “The day Cindy Anthony returned to the stand was the highest number of people who were waiting in line.”
More than 200 people stood outside the court on Tuesday – when Cindy Anthony continued her testimony, said Levey. He recalled receiving calls from the public at around 1 am that day, in hopes of indicators on scoring tickets.
“It’s amazing to me,” said Levey.
On Thursday, the 51 people waiting in line are going to see him live.
Tony Silva of Orlando and his friends were the first three in a row, as he had expected after midnight.
“I wanted a front row seat to see justice served,” said Silva, 29 years old, whose mother sparked his interest in the case. “It’s so obvious [Casey Anthony] did.”
Dysfunctional relationships emotionally charged between Casey Anthony, her daughter, Caylee Marie, and her mother, Cindy is not lost on women – who are showing more interest in the case of men.
On Thursday, there was more than double the number of women than men waiting in line outside the court for a chance of a seat in Room 23.
“This is possibly a mother who killed her son,” said 32-year-old Jennifer Miller-Carmon. “It’s very emotional for a woman. Men would rather be watching a hockey game or basketball.”
Michelle Mamagona interest in the case beyond her fascination with the criminal justice system. She said that the contrast of emotions between mother and daughter are saying.
“It felt to me that Cindy Anthony was much more attention and excitement of her granddaughter Casey Anthony about her own daughter,” said the 37-year-old Mamagona. “I have really wanted to hear the truth about why not reported missing sooner.”
Paul Johnson, Ragazzi Pizza & Restaurant in College Park in Orlando said the employees at the restaurant often change the flat screen TV sports channels to the local news channels to see the latest in the case.
“They are interested in it, but turn it off,” Johnson said during the check of the register in the restaurant’s bar. “It’s too much for me. I have children.”
Barbers in All-American Barber Club in Thornton Park Kennedy were watching testimony Thursday. It said customers often ask to turn the case because they like to see it while getting a shave or trim.
In the painted Junktion, director Shawn Lane said customers seemed more interested in the case at first, and now that is starting to wane a bit.
“Many of my clients ask us to turn the volume up to hear, but I think there is less demand now,” said Lane.
But just 30 minutes after Lane said, the Gilbert sat in one of the tables, the picnic burger inside and asked the server to switch on the subtitles so that they could read the testimony of prosecution witness, researcher at the Orange County Sheriff’s Office lead, Yuri Melich.
“I can not believe. [Casey Anthony] is a big liar,” said 66-year-old Sharon Gilbert, who has been following the case for years. “As a mother, it is difficult to see simply because I can not understand how you can sit there and not fall apart … I think the grandmother lost her two girls.”
