The Italian police's overheated interpretation of Knox's behaviour was a particularly pungent manifestation of a universal trait, one that frequently leads criminal investigators and juries astray: overconfidence in our ability to read someone else's state of mind simply by looking at them. This is not a uniquely modern error, born of pop psychology books. Sixty-nine investigators were played video-recorded versions of a rape victim's statement, with the role of victim played by an actress. The wording of the statement in each version was exactly the same, but the actress delivered it with varying degrees of emotion. The investigators, who prided themselves on their objectivity, turned out to be heavily influenced in their judgments by assumptions about the victim's demeanour: she was judged most credible when crying or showing despair.
In reality, rape victims react in the immediate aftermath of the event in a variety of ways: some are visibly upset; others are subdued and undemonstrative. There is, unsurprisingly, no universal reaction to being raped. The detectives were relying on their instincts, and their instincts turned out to be constructed from inherited and unreliable notions about women in distress.
Professional interrogators remain stubbornly convinced of their ability to tell if a person is being truthful simply by observing them. The lawyer and fraud expert Robert Hunter has termed this misapprehension "the demeanour assumption". He points out that it underpins the notions of oral evidence and jury trials; those who watch witnesses give evidence are assumed to be best placed to judge whether they are telling the truth.
Lots of people JUDGED Adam Baker(and Karen), in THIS way.....

It is astonishing how quick we are to draw conclusions about how a person ought to look or behave in circumstances we haven't ourselves even come close to experiencing. How many of us have returned to our home after a night away to discover that our flatmate has been brutally murdered? How many of us can know what it feels like to be at the sharp end of a punishing interrogation, in a foreign country, carried out by men in uniform who seem absolutely convinced that they know what happened, who are as certain as we are confused, fearful and exhausted? None of us. And yet we feel free to blithely pronounce, from a great distance, on whether someone in this situation is "acting weird" or not.

I agree with you, Amazed. But apparently we are just not "smart" enough to understand. LMAO

Just like the whole BitTorrent/child porn deal.
That discussion took place at least 7 months ago.
Djs51 acts like this bothers it so much - SO why did it bring it back up? Makes no sense.
Then decides I'm a dangerous stalker when I reply to it.

In other words, you have no answers so you are just going to resort to your normal M.O. Insults and diversion. I understand. Typical behavior for you.

Shes done this time and time again. Claims something is so upsetting or derogatory towards her yet she posts it here over and over...even if it came from FB or where ever. Makes no sense at all!

There ARE 'some' :)

I actually feel very sorry for you. You are like a neglected child seeking attention. To you even negative attention is better than no attention at all. I think that is why you bring up negative posts about you from where ever they may be from. You know if you do that someone will comment back to you. I feel bad that your self esteem is so low that you feel the need to do that. It's very sad and I hope that your life gets better. And for the record, I do not think that you had anything to do with Zahra's death, or that you are in any way connected to AB. JMO

You may not have accused her of having child porn but you said she may be associated with it. I don't know about any of the rest of you, but if someone said I was associated with child porn, they would be drinking their dinner through a straw for a month!

Please watch this commercial Budweiser did after 9/11. They only aired it once so as not to benefit financially from it - they just wanted to acknowledge the tragic event ......
Thanks for this beautiful tribute.
#3991 Oct 9, 2011

Those of you who continue to argue with DJS51 and her aliases are no better than she is. Get a grip! She makes you all look stupid.
Do something constructive with your time.
