George Anthony Sobbing — But No Tears . . .
George Anthony was posturing all over the place, before he settled on tears . . . He was
Authoritative, "for you to say that I was doing something wrong, sir, you're wrong!" Victim, "You're trying to take this joy of my life away from me." Ambivalent, "I would never do anything to harm my daughter in that way." Moralistic, " I never would do anything like that." Insinuating, "I know her by that name, and also another name." Beyond reproach, (the idea of an affair, "very funny." Finger pointer, "Caylee, she's no longer with us and Casey was the last one I'd seen with her...one and one adds up to two." An open book, "I have nothing to hide . . .never have." Detractor, "she is not a good person . . . questionable past . . . criminal record . . . Status highlighter, "defendant Casey Anthony." George Anthony has shown himself to be a man of many faces, and people with many faces, generally lack one . . . It is the bane of the sociopath, they don't have a personality of their own, so they keep trying on personalities and behaviors — until they become, what will get them what they want . . .
When George Anthony put on Cindy's expression of grief, he became a sympathetic character. Like Cindy's, his was a tearless expressions of grief. But what they lacked in waterworks, they made up for in drama, including a trembling hands to the mouth and eye rubbing, which are indications of lying. This makes sense because, the events they recounted, as the source of their pain, were not especially painful — for them . . .
Cindy's grief purportedly sprung up upon being reminded of the experience of learning that her granddaughter had been missing for 31 days, but at that time, she actually interfered with the investigation into the whereabouts of her missing granddaughter, focusing on Casey instead. Demanding that the police, who came to search for her missing granddaughter, arrest her daughter, for the unauthorized use of her credit card . . .
Similarly, George's sentiment was supposedly aroused by the memory of being informed by the authorities that Caylee was dead, when he knew Caylee was dead long before the authorities informed him of it. Consequently, both grandparents were pretending to relive emotions, based on memories of a past event, that did not contain those emotions . . .
At least their children cry with tears, at least their children love each other. When you're raised in a family culture of deception, game playing and lies, that's no small feat.
