Is Amanda Knox a Victim or a Cold-Blooded Killer?

Is Amanda Knox a Victim or a Cold-Blooded Killer?

Amanda Knox was convicted in the Italian courts of killing her roommate in 2007 with her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito. She spent the past five years in an Italian prison and was finally released on October 3, 2011 on appeal that finally acquitted and freed her.

In a strange turn of events, as it has been since the inception of this trial, Italy’s Supreme Court ruled that Knox must be retried for her Brit roommate Meredith Kercher’s murder and refused to vacate her conviction for slander, of which she accused the Italian police of slapping her across the head.

Is Amanda Knox innocent or was she a victim? And what role did she play in the death of her former roommate? She has been a subject of interest for years with a movie made about this case and countless hours of TV coverage on her trial. How could this sweet looking young woman be involved in a murder?

I have been closely following this case for years. My instinct tells me that Amanda Knox was involved in the murder on some level. I believe that there were drugs and alcohol involved and a sex game ensured, where Ivory Coast drifter, Rudy Guede (who is still serving 16 years in Italian prison after his latest appeal) and Knox and her Italian boyfriend, Sollecito got carried away. It was probably an accident and they covered it up.

The story feels like the Natalie Holloway death with so many conflicting stories and lies about the one person who is not around to tell their story. These people are protecting one another and covering up their tracks.

Judge for yourself, as Amanda Knox begins her book circuit with her latest publication, “Waiting to Be Heard.” She is also appearing in an interview tonight with Diane Sawyer on ABC at 9pm CST.

Is Amanda Know an innocent victim or a cold blooded killer? I say killer.

    Rudy was an African drifter in Europe. Perfect patsy. Don't get me wrong, I've known native Africans (Ghana and Congo) who were VERY wealthy, so let's not say "Africa=poor, ergo, naive" here. Italy employs Roman-based Civic law, which means, "Guilty until proven innocent." This is alien to many American ears. Was Amanda there at the time of the killings? Probably. Did she entice, or coax the unwitting immigrant to make a quick wet-buck? Possibly, but that depends. It depends on the evidence culled from the investigation by the Perugia Police. Was she proximately involved with the killing? That I am most concerned about. Did she suggest that Sollecito employ a desperate ex-pat to "do a job" for some selfish or thrilling reason? I still cannot figure that out. Call me an idiot all you want, but I think there is a rat in the rabbithole.

    I agree that Amanda was there. She knows what really happened which I still think was drug related and perhaps an accidental drug overdose after a sexual game. Yes, there is a rat in the rabbit hole.

    But that we must ask these questions here means to me that there remain too many grey areas. In the context of Civic Law, that shouldn't fly. Did someone get paid off? We all know that Italy is a PIIGS. We know that Amanda is also wealthy and Italian Law is "loose" to say the least. In desperate times, did she grab a lucky opportunity? I won't bang a gavel here, but to let a person capitalize off a murder with a bestseller gives me the willies. I want to buy it just so I can find the cracks in her glorious "armor," but I don't want to enrich her either. Not by a penny. That's like trying to pay Carl Panzram for exoneration. Too risky for my assessments.

    I am not buying Amanda's book. She doesn't deserve to be rewarded. Her story just doesn't check out. I still say she is guilty and got away with murder.

  • Ok - I have also been following this closely because I happened to have been in Perugia in October - just a few weeks before this murder. I have always felt she had nothing to do with it.

    Has anybody read "The Monster of Florence" by Douglas Preston? I guarantee if you read this book you will see that she is innocent. I love Italy! But their justice system is an utter farce. So much of what they do is based on "saving face" and promotion to higher positions. Wild accusations fly both ways and I think everyone involved in prosecuting he was tainted.

    Read the book and you'll see what I mean. The book is not about her - it's about a serial killer in Italy (with a small new section at the end about her trial.) But it demonstrates how they operate. You will be shocked.
