Several people have sent me a video clip of Cindy in the courtroom and have questioned whether she was giving signals to Casey to cry. The answer is a resounding NO! Granted, it is odd-looking behavior. But when you consider the fact that Cindy is spending all of her time in the courtroom with her reading glasses on and writing madly to capture her thoughts and impressions for her upcoming book, her behavior makes a lot of sense.
Also she is very far from Casey’s line of vision. The last thing Casey is doing in that courtroom is turning around to look at Cindy. Ms. Simms would put a quick stop to that. If Ms. Simms wasn’t there, one of her other minders would not allow it. Casey is rarely left alone at the table.
The way Cindy treated Casey when Cindy testified, by not looking at Casey and also ignoring her when she left the stand spoke volumes. Casey had a major meltdown because of it and can never forgive her mother for her lack of support, and in essence turning on her. Casey would never look at her mother at this point.
Here Cindy looks ahead with her reading glasses on the bridge of her nose, where they have been most of the day. Cindy is not pleased as she looks at the attorneys during their sidebar. Her hand is clenched in a fist like position. This indicates anger and anxiousness.
Cindy cranes her neck to see what is going on in front of the courtroom . She is craning her neck because she isn’t seeing well with those reading glasses, which do not give a good view for seeing in the distance.
Therefore, she takes off her glasses and scratches her nose. No doubt, after wearing those glasses all day, there has been a lack of blood flow. So her nose may itch. She scratches it all the way up to the top of her nose.
Then she uses the ends of her glasses to poke under one of her eyes and then under the other eye. I believe she is using the ends of the glasses to scratch herself because her eyes are also itchy and tired from wearing those glasses.
It is clearly not a signal to Casey to get her to cry. Casey has Ms. Simms to tell her when to cry and when to show emotion on cue. She doesn’t need that advice from Cindy. Nor would Casey listen to Cindy. She never has listened to Cindy before and she would never start listening to her mother now.
Also Cindy is so livid that Casey and Team Jose Baez accused Lee and George of sexually molesting her, that she would never do anything to help Casey at this point.
Perhaps she may soften during the penalty phase and plead for Casey’ life. But at this point, I see Cindy still as hard as nails. Just because she broke down on the stand when she saw Caylee’s bedroom doesn’t mean she’s all warm and fuzzy and kind and sweet and forgiving to Casey.
So the bottom line is NO! There is no signaling and no helping Casey. The only ones who are helping Casey at this point are Jose Baez, Cheney Mason, and Ms. Simms and some of her male fans who put money into her jailhouse account. www.drlillianglass.com
