So the media coverage is sensationalist on all fronts - that I think we agree on.
Clearly there are some serious generalisations which are contributing to your position on Knox and on her supporters. These generalisations have no basis in fact, they are just your opinion based on your biases, it's a good thing she wasn't being tried by you IMO - oh wait, she has been hasn't she?
Not setting myself up as an expert at all, far from it, just happen to believe the opposite of what you do based on the evidence available in this case. Why are you so sure of your position btw when clearly the courts upon review of all the evidence have set her free? Were you there? Hiding in the bushes? How do you know anything for sure?
You believe she is guilty - the premise is innocent until proven guilty, a court of law agreed that proof did not exist, do you know something they do not? Her promiscuity is NOT evidence of murder, her "evil looks" or so called "shifty behaviour" is not evidence of murder. Her changing story to the police is not evidence of murder (that, quite frankly, is evidence of fear) as for blaming her boss lets just speculate for a moment is it not possible:
- That she did not like her boss and found him untrustworthy from past experiences with him.
- That when pressed about what she knew again, and again, and again and asked the question "If it wasn't you then who could it be?" Would not het frazzled mind of someone in grief who has just lost their friend in the most horrible of circumstances have wondered the same thing and be looking at everyone they knew for possible suspects.
- you would want to know, wouldn't you? You would have a list of people that from past experience you think the police should question and eliminate from the suspect list wouldn't you? If you were pressed for suspects outside yourself by the police over a 24 hours questioning you would name some names, you might even think you were helping by giving police a place to start their inquiries wouldn't you?
- If you felt there was someone you knew who you even did not know well enough to eliminate from the suspect list, you would possibly name them too if pushed hard enough because of the pressure to answer pointed questions in an interrogation again and again and again.
- Finally, if you were a suspect to murder and you were innocent but everyone is treating you like you are guilty no matter how much you protested your innocence, how terrifying would that be? Every word and action constantly twisted to match their predisposition to believe you guilty? What I have seen of her and the evidence suggests to me she is and was one terrified and confused young lady but not that she was guilty.
They aren't that rich. Where do you think money came from? Media outlets ready to flog Knox's story to the world.
Can you prove that? And if you can - what of it? In and of itself it is an attempt to raise funds to be with their daughter and for her defence - I'm genuinely curious, what would you do if you were in their shoes?
I think that the way this whole case has been presented across the media has brought out the lynch mob mentality in a lot of folks.
In the Casey Anthony case justice was not done IMO, in this case, however, I think it has finally now been done. I don't expect everyone to agree with me but it remains where I stand on this case.
