The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “Amanda Knox ’FRIGHTENED‘ By GUILTY Verdict and 28 Year Sentence” (Web-site/URL: http://gma.yahoo.com/amanda-knox-39-frightened-39-guilty-verdict-28-211609951–abc-news-topstories.html). This is A TWO-YEAR EXTENSION from the 26-year sentence she got in 2009 (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48RNhSnwHJc).
“Amanda Knox was found GUILTY of murder today (January 30 2014) by an Italian court, the latest TWIST in a murder case that goes back to 2007″. This case has enough “twists” for SEVERAL Hollywood movies. We have almost SEVEN YEARS’ of “twists” here and there are surely MORE ”twists”/APPEALS TO COME because AMANDA KNOX‘s DEFENSE TEAM will surely appeal this SECOND GUILTY verdict.
“The judge sentenced Knox to 28 years and six months in prison. Her former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and co-defendant was sentenced to 25 years”. HIS ORIGINAL SENTENCE which will surely start all over again if prosecutors get their way.
“They were found guilty of the 2007 murder of her former roommate Meredith Kercher in a cottage they shared in Perugia, Italy”.
“Knox, who remained in her hometown of Seattle for the trial, watched the verdict with her family live on television”. “In a statement”, Knox said: ”I am FRIGHTENED and saddened by this unjust verdict“. Surely Knox is MORE FRIGHTENED than “saddened”. “Having been found innocent BEFORE, I EXPECTED BETTER from the ITALIAN justice system“. This WAS NOT a REASONABLE EXPECTATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). As we’ve said on numerous occasions, the Italian justice system is DRASTICALLY different from the U.S. justice system. Knox should have familiarized herself with Italian law and culture BEFORE going to Italy. A STUDENT goes abroad to STUDY so it’s NOT all fun and games. She SHOULD HAVE realized this. ”My family and I have SUFFERED GREATLY from this WRONGFUL PERSECUTION“. There are TWO things to note here. First, were these “accusations” “wrongful?” This is open to INTERPRETATIONS & is also DEFENSIVE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). Second/On top of this, her claim that she and her family have “suffered greatly” is also DEFENSIVE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“Knox, 26, said in her statement that the tough verdict “is NO CONSOLATION for the Kercher family” and…”This has GOTTEN OUT OF HAND“. Note the focus here. ”the tough verdict “is no consolation for the Kercher family” is about the Kerchers, but “this has gotten out of hand” for AMANDA KNOX, the latest example of ARROGANCE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“She BLAMED her conviction on “OVERZEALOUS and intransigent (uncompromising; dogmatic; unyielding; inflexible; stubborn) prosecution, PREJUDICED and NARROW-MINDED investigation, UNWILLINGNESS TO ADMIT MISTAKES, reliance on UNRELIABLE testimony and evidence, CHARACTER ASSASSINATION, (and) INCONSISTENT and UNFOUNDED ACCUSATORY theory“. Knox is basically using A LAUNDRY LIST to BLAME & CRITICIZE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk).
“Kercher’s sister Stephanie and brother Lyle were in the courtroom for the verdict and listened to it with composure. Lyle Kercher later said, “NO MATTER WHAT THE VERDICT IS, it is NEVER going to be a matter of celebrating…. It is probably THE BEST thing we could have HOPED for“. BINGO. Regardless of what the verdict is it WON’T bring Meredith Kercher back into this world.
“Shortly before the verdict was reached, Knox said that if found guilty she HOPED that the U.S. government would refuse to extradite her toItaly”. ”I’m definitely NOT going back to Italy WILLINGLY. They’ll have to catch me and PULL ME BACK KICKING AND SCREAMING into a prison that I DON’T deserve to be in. I will (continue to) FIGHT FOR MY INNOCENCE“, this time from THE UNITED STATES. Knox is DEFENSIVE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) and “(hoping)” AGAINST “hope” here because again THERE’S NO WAY TO KNOW what will happen next in this case.
“Finally, “Roberto Costantini wrote in Corriere della Sera today (January 30 2014) that he spoke with Meredith Kercher’s sister Stephanieseveral days ago about the letter. He quoted Stephanie Kercher replying to the offer of the letter, “I WILL HAVE TO THINK. I don’t know, but today(Janaury 30, 2014), I don’t want to read it because I DO NOT feel the need to speak with her (Knox) now“. Will the Kerchers EVER “feel the need to speak to (Knox)?” This is eerily similar to ANTHONY CASTRO when he said: “I have nothing to say to him (my father)” after AMANDA BERRY GINA DEJESUS & MICHELLE KNIGHT were found after A DECADE in captivity (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-1JW7CqXDo). Again, the odds are AGAINST Knox here.
To conclude, this is the latest/yet another chapter of AMANDA KNOX‘s ARROGANCE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) which the Kerchers WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH. The focus SHOULDN’T be solely on Knox. We must mention MEREDITH KERCHER’s name loud and clear here because Kercher was MURDERED, WHATEVER the theory might be (sex game gone wrong or most recently, roommates FIGHTING OVER A DIRTY BATHROOM).
