This Is Odd

George Anthony’s supposed testimony in response to the allegation that Caylee drowned in the family pool:

“When I heard that today, it hurt really bad. If I would have known something happened to Caylee, I wouldn’t be hear today,” George Anthony testified. “I would have done everything humanly possible to save my granddaughter if what was stated prior really happened.”

This is the sort of “non-denial denial” that gets people convicted, where the person doesn’t so much assert facts as make arguments and appeals to sympathy (“…it hurt really bad.)

Of course, to be convicted you have to be charged first.  Not much chance of that at this point.
