CASEY COMPLAINS ABOUT THE POLICE, THE FOCUS BEING ON CAYLEE, GETS FRUSTRATED AND SHAKES HER FISTS.
PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT OF HOW THE CONVERSATION WENT BETWEEN CASEY AND HER PARENTS
As Casey watches the phone get handed over to her mom, Casey blows up, shakes her handcuffed fists, and says "Can someone let me..." and then she yells out: "COME ON!" Cindy gets on the line and asks Casey to settle down. Casey in turn complains that nobody's letting her speak, that they want her to talk, and that she wants them to give her three seconds to say something. Cindy then tells her that she'll listen to what Casey has to say. Casey then says: "I'm not in control over any of this. I don't know what the hell is going on. I don't know what's going on. MY ENTIRE LIFE has been TAKEN from me. EVERYTHING has been taken from me. You don't understand. Everybody wants me to have answers, but I don't have any answers because I don't know what's going on. I have no one to talk to, except when Jose when he comes. That's the only person I can talk to right now, because I can't say anything to you guys besides telling you that I love you, (Casey sniffs), I want Caylee and that's not being put on the air which it should be. It's everything else that I'm NOT saying. That's why I've not been calling, that's why I haven't been taking calls because I said that we weren't going to be doing that because I've said that I've been trying to make sure that I'm not going to give anybody anything else to throw against me. And even with me giving them nothing, they're still doing it, so.. how am I...". (As George watches sadly as he watches Casey reacting).

CASEY GETS ANGRY, SHAKES HER FISTS AT HER PARENTS

Then Cindy gets back on the line, she asks Casey to calm down. Casey, still agitated goes on with her rant, saying: "My entire life has been taken from me. Everything has been taken from me. Everybody wants me to have answers, but I don't have any answers".
CASEY TELLS FATHER THAT THEIR VISIT INDUCED HER FIRST REAL FRUSTRATION
CASEY TELLS GEORGE THAT SHE'S PICKED HIM FOR INDIVIDUAL MEETING
(NOTE: This meeting was scheduled and about 1 1/2 hours prior to when it was to happen, Casey cancelled it).
The tape continues to play. At one point Cindy tearfully tells Casey that she's afraid of what's happening to Caylee, wondering if the people who have her are feeding her properly. Cindy breaks down, and then tells Casey that at least she knows where Casey is but is scared that she doesn't know where Caylee is. Casey responds to that telling her mother that even though her mom knows where she is, she's not comfortable. Realizing that doesn't sound so good, Casey shifts her conversation and tries to comfort her mother, telling her that she knows that Caylee is OK.
At the end of the video, Cindy and Casey talk about whether videos of their jail visits will be put on TV. Cindy tells Casey that the videos won't be put on TV, and Casey goes on to explain how she makes sure to say how bad the police are, and have been to her, to ensure that they'd be too embarrassed to release her tapes to the media. Then she tells her parents that she will not cooperate with police if they continue to accuse her, saying "I'll try to help them in any way I can, but if they come in here attacking me, they aren't getting shit. I'm sorry. I need to be looked at as a victim... I'm just as much of a victim as the rest of you. It hasn't been portrayed that way, and it probably won't be. But, I know that and at least there are other people that know that, and understand that."
Then George tugs at the phone to say goodbye, and tells her that she can trust him, Mom and Lee.
