Here we are with another "nice story" about this Amanda.Topix, being pro-Amanda did published.....Not surprise

Topix keep on telling us that Amanda is innocent....if that is the case, why Topix and Amanda do nt raise funds in order to hire a vey very good and independent detective to find out what really really happened??....why nt???....Why Topix does nt spend time and energy on the poor british student killed. Remember, were technical and profissional mistakes from the police and the prosecutor....The legal procedure were all correct in the first sentence. Shame on you Topix people....u make me feel sick. I am sure that u are American....In America if u have money and power nobody can touch u....Shame on u!

No, shame on YOU, licos ivar! It is not Topix that says Amanda is innocent, it is the Hellman court, which based its conclusions on logic and facts. If the recent news stories are more favorable to Amanda than previously, it is because the newspaper and TV accounts are finally allowing the facts to speak for themselves. All that needed to happen was for the court to be allowed to hear the real evidence and not the lies with which this case started. The independent experts appointed by the Appeals Court demonstrated that there was not a shred of evidence that Amanda or Raffaele were at the crime scene. The first court, in spite of your claim that they followed "legal procedure" did not allow independent review of the prosecution's phony evidence. Now you want Topix to appoint more experts to substantiate the guilters' bogus claims? Or do you want the Topix administrators to censor the pro-innocence views just because you don't want to hear the truth??? No matter how much the few remaining guilters keep screaming "guilty" the truth is finally out. The independent experts have presented their findings, and Hellman has written his report. Maybe you should read it before making any more crazy claims about Topix and those who post here.

I wonder if there is something about the Italian national character, that when a significant flaw is revealed in the pride of their nation, Italians react by assigning blame to wholly uninvolved and innocent people and trying to destroy those same innocent people as a means of expiating the flaw(s) in their own system...

Italians properly should be utterly ashamed of their obviously-flawed legal system and its out-of control prosecutors like Giuliano Mignini. They should be ashamed of a police force which makes the Keystone Kops look like The Untouchables or perhaps even CSI-NY. They should be ashamed of "journalists" who make profit from accusing and slandering and seeking the destruction of the innocent in the manner described in 1 Kings 21:7-14.

I am reminded, however, that there is a phrase of distinctly American slang: "full of Bologna" - albeit more usually spelled (and pronounced) "full of baloney".

......Regarding Amanda we have a lot of points which are nt clear...moreover, we live in free society and each of us has his own conclusions....The majority thinks that in one way or another Amanda and Sollecitto are involved in this crime. The World has changed a lot and still changing.I did my University studies in Perugia- Economia e Commercio in the.At that time Perugia was a Paradise:
-We had students from all continents from this Planet.
- Perugia was the safest town in all Italy.
-In order to stay in Perugia you had to prove to the authorities (Questura)that u money for your studies AND you have to pass each year at least 3 exams at University.
-There were no prostitutes neither drug dealers. Instead we had a lot of friendship among students, parties, studies and a lot, a lot of sex- but sex based on concensus. Perugia was like all the
international towns around the World...Oxford, Cambridge etc, etc....It was a really really a nice Paradise...Students killing each other because of sex????!!!...
I was very surprised, choked and above all I felt very sad. It is another Peruigia with new kind of students...The so called the new generation of Internet...

I am sorry for your Paradise Lost, but please do try to keep things in perspective. It was not Amanda Knox or Raffaele Sollecito who were the drug dealers in this matter: that distinction falls to Rudy Guede and particularly prosecution star witness Antonio Curatolo - who dealt heroin. Moreover, the real evidence in this case very strongly suggests that sex was NOT the motive in this murder: patterns of bloodstains on clothing very STONGLY suggest (prove, really) that Meredith Kercher was fully clothed even to her coat and shoes from her walk home when she was viciously attacked and fatally wounded. There is evidence - in the form of her blood pool and stains on her jacket - that she lay bleeding for perhaps 10 minutes before her attacker even tried to disrobe her, and that only after that did her attacker try to commit what was really an "unsuccessful" sexual assault.

The murder of Meredith Kercher may have been motivated by money in the form of robbery - or it may have been premeditated murder for entirely other purposes as I have personally long suspected - but it clearly had very little to do with sex.

I would suggest that you carefully research the "accidental" death of American college student Allison Owens near Perugia on 2 Oct 2011 - paying VERY close attention to the names of the parties involved in the case. I very strongly suspect that the death of Allison Owens is DIRECTLY connected to the death of Meredith Kercher - and also directly connected with the then imminent acquittal and release of Amanda Knox.

The English-speaking British royal subject Meredith Kercher was not the intended victim on 1 Nov 2007, but a "mistake". Rather, the English-speaking American Amanda Knox was the intended victim that night. And the death of Allison Owens was no "accident".

Perugia may have been very pretty on the outside when you studied there, licos ivar, but I would bet even then it was corrupt beyond measure in its very core.

It was one Perugia where different political parties worked together for the town..Communist Party and Democracia Cristiana, together. The Catholic Church with Commuinist Party together....It was on a big effort for the town and with the town. The police and the Perugini were very friendly and tolerant towards the non-italians....It was just a vey very nice place to live and to study. U are telling that sex was nt the cause of death of "poor" british girl???....Plse, we are nt stupid.
- Amanda, Rude and Sollecito want have a orgy....but Meredith did nt want becse she had a her period....Be informed plse . Nothing to do with robery....students do nt have a lot of money. Which kind of robery?????. When Perugia started accepting people like u ( sorry!) then Perugia started to have serious problems.Perugia was nt for fanatics-it was for open and educated people where love, friendship, understanding each other as human beings werethe rules of the game..........nt drugs,nt deaths!...sad!

licos ivar, Ron Hendry has spent his career doing what is called forensic reconstruction engineering: analyzing the leftover pieces after plane crashes, train derailments, automobile accidents, unexplained deaths, etc. Hendry looks at the photographs of the aftermath and from that he "reconstructs" what has happened to create that aftermath.

The best I can suggest is to look up Hendry and let his own words tell you how he analyzed the evidence and what he believes it tell us.

In essence, Hendry points out that bloodstains on Meredith's jacket show that she was WEARING it when first wounded in the neck. A bloodstain on the wall near her bed and blood drips on the floor under that show where she was STANDING and FACING THE WALL at less than arm's length when she was so wounded - thus showing that her attacker was behind her. Blood drips on her shoes show that she was wearing those also - hence also her pants.

The main blood pool near the armoire shows that Meredith lay near that and bled out for perhaps ten minutes before being moved to where her body was found. A large bloodstain on the shoulder of her jacket matching an arcing blood smear from the blood pool - and no similar bloodstain on her sweatshirt - show that she was still wearing the jacked when she was dragged out of the blood pool. The position of her shoes and pants as found suggest that these were removed only after she was moved (dragged) from the blood pool. Blood spray on the underside of the duvet where it covered her face demonstrate that Meredith was still alive and gasping when the duvet was placed over her.

Whoever attacked and mortally wounded Meredith was in no big hurry to rape her: they left her laying in her own blood pool for about 10 minutes before they even STARTED undressing her and positioning her for the "rape" - which owing to the lack of actual semen inside Meredith's body, we know to have been rather "unsuccessful".

Must not have been such an "exciting" thing for Meredith's attacker to try to have sex with a dying girl whose face they had to cover just to avoid being showered with blood spray.

This was no "sex game", and only ONE person left any evidence of his presence at all: Rudy Guede. This was no "orgy": this was simply a murder "dressed up" to look like a rape.

.....with respect sir,how many the so called international experts made serious mistakes???...Ron Hendry indeed had a lot of experience but can make mistakes....above all Rony was very selective, he did nt see all picture of the facts!!!...AND who paid Rony Hendry?
I am not here to accuse Amanda and Sollecitto, only I would like to express one thing:
- if Amanda was nt a American and Sollecitto had no father who had a lot of connections like "una piovra"- these two were supposed to be in jail today .Do u agree?...I think so!
You can nt select the facts and take a conclusion...YOU HAVE TO SEE ALL THE PICTURE AND THE ATTITUDE OF AMANDA AND SOLLECITTO. You have to follow step by step ALL The facts.For you Amanda is innocent. I do nt agree with you but I do respect your conclusion. For almost 80% of people who followed this sad crime Amanda and Sollecito are involved ....These are the facts. IF these two were innocent as u suggest then they could have tried to meet the family of the british student and talk to them....They did nt. Why??....They can nt becse only themselves they know their involvement in this crime. Did Amanda and Sollecitoo killed the British student?
-NO! Did they played a part on this crime?
-Yes, no doubt about that!
Plse, keep ur conclusions with yoursef but do nt try to convince us. End of the conversation!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Licos
ps.I have been in touch with a lot of friends in Perugia some of them are very good lawyers, police, etc,etc..-almost all them say the same thing:
Indeed, the two : Amanda and Sollecitto played a big role in this crime....These are the facts. They did nt kill but were involved.

licos, people disbelieve Darwin, evidence of global warming, the connection between smoking tobacco and lung cancer... Ron Hendry specifies exactly what evidence he used and precisely how he reached his conclusions: you can elect to disbelieve if you wish, but that is all you are doing: denying what is clearly set forth and demonstrated before your eyes.

Why did not Amanda and Raffaele meet with the Kercher family? Unlike Meredith's friends from the UK who all fled for home at the first reports of the crime, English-speaking Amanda DID try to stay around to meet with and comfort the Kerchers in 2007. After all, she was one of the last people to have been with Meredith - laughing and enjoying the Halloween parties in Perugia. She paid for that gesture of kindness with four years of her life. This October - when the court let her go - both she and Raffaele surely felt the need to "get out of Dodge" (American slang expression: get away from the area and its threats.) After being cursed in public by the Kerchers and their attorney, I don't imagine she felt welcome to approach them and "comfort" them anymore.

As for "involvement" - people who are "involved" in a crime leave tracks and evidence. Absolutely NO such evidence remained once the court-appointed Italian DNA experts had shredded the prosecution's contaminated and deliberately misinterpreted DNA analyses - demonstrating that the DNA on the bra clasp was NOT compatible with Raffaele and that the knife (which did not fit the wounds anyway) had NEVER been in contact with human blood. Police wnd prosecutors were unable to bring forth any prints, hair, saliva or anything else that actually tied either Amanda or Raffaele to the murder scene: they simply COULD NOT have ever been in that murder room at any time during OR AFTER the crime.

Not sure what reports are being spread around there in Belgium, licos, but I have searched out vigorously and compared evidence in this case for now four full years, and it is very clear to me that police in Perugia very deliberately twisted the evidence and even manufactured evidence to fit their "crime theory".

(You did, I hope, hear of the testimony of one police officer that Raffaele's knife was packaged in sterile packaging at his apartment, then taken to the murder scene where is was completely unwrapped by a police officer, rubbed on who knows what, and then repackaged using available used materials including a candy or lingerie box which even the vaunted Dr. Stefanoni described as "obviously non-sterile"... right?)

This was what the Brits call a "fit up". If you cannot see that then either you are getting extremely filtered information - perhaps from titillating tabloids - or else you are walking about with your eyes closed. Sorry, but it's true.

How bout all that fishy behavior huh? Raises some serious alarms because normal & innocent people don't behave that way unless there mentally ill or something. She knew details of her death before they were disclosed. That alone is funny business.

I am certain that your own behavior has been "fishy" at times. Does that prove that you are a cold-blooded murderer in the absence of any hard evidence and despite all evidence against your involvement?

However, you need to be corrected on a few matters. Amanda did NOT know details she had not been told: police stated what wounds and the blood pool they had seen, and Amanda would certainly have known what was spoken in her presence. She expressed her personal horror and bewilderment and anger over what she had been told.

Beyond that, the "fishy" behavior appears all to have been reported by "witnesses" who were paid by tabloids for their "testimony": the shopkeeper and her reported comments about "hot sex"; another shopkeeper and his contradicted and perjured report of buying "bleach" that was never found and never used and "receipts' for same that clearly stated "pizza". The "friends" who spoke no English and never knew Meredith, yet chose to be "offended" that Amanda did not attend their vigil for Meredith while she was instead being interviewed by police for some 53 out of 96 hours of the "freedom" she enjoyed between the discovery and her arrest. Police who interpreted what were in fact yoga stretches meant to relieve tension of sitting in a cramped police waiting room for hours as "cartwheels" - as if Amanda were celebrating something.

Recall that Amanda was so shaken and frightened by the matter that she quit her job at Le Chic simply to avoid being out at night. Yet while her Italian roommates lawyered-up and and went into seclusion - and Meredith's British friends all fled back to the UK within 24 hours - Amanda refused even to go to her aunt in Germany, insisting on remaining in Perugia to meet and try to comfort Meredith's family.

That seems more of human empathy and concern than you are capable of!

You are obviously painting ak in a good light due to your own beliefs. Trying very hard to explain away her obviously strange behavior with nonsensical interpretations of what was going on. Her fishy behavior was also noted by merediths friends & family as well as police who all believed she possibly had something to do with it. I suppose they only think so b/c they were paid as well. Not b/c they cared about the victim at all ofcourse not. Where is your empathy & concern for the real victim? There are many not convinced & there will continue to be as until unanswered questions become answered. And they have the right to be skeptical. You and all your amanda warrios cant silence them.

First of all, you need to overcome your confusion as to who is trying to silence whom. Those whom you provocatively refer to as "Amanda's warriors" are not warriors at all. We are simply people who have studied the evidence, and we are always explaining the facts for the benefit of anyone who wants to find out the truth. We do so calmly, objectively, and patiently. We don't insist on convincing you if you do not want to be convinced. The facts are there, but if you would rather cling to the guilter fantasies, that is up to you. No one is trying to silence you; it is the guilters. led by Mignini, who have tried to silence anyone who disagrees with the pro-guilt narrative. Journalists who opposed the lies of Mignini and the police have been beaten and arrested. The web site of the courageous Perugian blogger, Frank Sfarzo, was censored because Mignini was able to intimidate Google into shutting him down. Frank himself was roughed up by Mignini's goons several time. Still, he will not be silenced, and neither will we. You may not like what we say, because the truth makes you uncomfortable. It's so much more fun to believe in the salacious lies, isn't it?
What are you implying with the label, "Wait a Sec?" Do you feel like you are being rushed? If you feel that the truth is threatening you, maybe you have a persecution complex. That impression is strengthened when you bring up the red herring about "concern for the real victim." How have you are any of your pro-guilt crowd shown concern for Meredith Kercher? You don't seem the least bit disturbed by the fact that the vile murderer, Guede, gets out of jail in a few years, ready to resume his career of violent crime, with the blessing of the Perugian authorities and, apparently, with guilters like you.
Yes, the facts are there, but you resist them. Yes, Amanda does Yoga, and has been doing Yoga for a long time. Maybe where you come from Yoga is considered odd, foreign, exotic. In fact, tens of millions of Americans and Europeans do Yoga. Here in N.Y. where I live, I can practice Yoga or Tai Chi in public, and people are sophisticated enough to know what it is I am doing. I can practice these movements in a public park and I will attract no attention at all. I'm sure it is the same in Seattle. Yet if I were to do these same movements in a Texas town, or in Perugia, Italy, people would think it strange They might even have me arrested and accuse me of devil worship. Amanda must have forgotten that she was in a medieval backwater where people do not understand about Yoga, and think that her behavior was "fishy."
Maybe you can open your mind to the fact that what may be considered "fishy" in a provincial town may not seem strange in a place where people are tolerant and use their imagination. Maybe you would derive benefit from trying Yoga or Tai Chi yourself. It might help to cure you of your feelings of persecution.

Citizen, we only repeat what we have dug out by intently studying the evidence and the court testimony, and in some cases the explanations offered by the Knox / Sollecito defense team. Were you aware that "cartwheels" is never mentioned in the Motivational Report of the Massei court that initially convicted the two? Do you know why? Part of the reason is that the police officer who originally witnessed the behavior described it as "splits" - not "cartwheels". "Splits" - of course - is at least marginally descriptive of some of the yoga stretches commonly used by athletes and very commonly seen in video reporting of the Olympics. "Cartwheels", meanwhile, seems to have been the invention either of the prosecutor, Giuliano Mignini, or of Italian tabloids which invented many salacious stories and "testimony" which never made it into the record.

As for Amanda's "fishy behavior" being noted by "Meredith's friends and family", I am wondering how you figure this out? All of Meredith's British friends left for the UK within 24 hours of the discovery, and witnessed little if any of Amanda's "behavior". Amanda's and Meredith's roommates all lawyered up within hours of the discovery and were unavailable for comment: they don't even appear much in the trial record. So what we are left with appears to be reports by people who did not really know either very well after all, but which were all first captured by tabloid journalists who paid handsomely for the most salacious of stories. Again, all this "fishy behavior" seems to have been largely omitted from the trial record - perhaps because the "witnesses" were reluctant to testify under oath and penalty of perjury.

Now finally, I would like to point out to you the ease with which people CAN be falsely convicted of heinous crimes. I would point out the names of Vernon McManus, Clarence Brandley, John C. Skelton, Federico M. Macias, Muneer Deeb, Ricardo Aldape Guerra, Ernest Ray Willis, Michael Blair, Michael Toney, Robert Springsteen and Anthony Graves. These all were convicted and sentenced to die in Texas for various murders since 1977 - and each and every one was ultimately exonerated and proved completely innocent and released from death row after an average delay of about 10 years, Add to this list Cameron Todd Willingham - convicted, sentenced and executed for starting the arson fire which killed his own two young children.

That fire has since been proved to have been of entirely accidental origin and absolutely not the result of any arson whatsoever. Cameron Todd Willingham was murdered by the people of the State of Texas and by Gov. Rick Perry for a "crime" which in fact NEVER HAPPENED.

How does it feel to be a proved member yourself of the murderous mob, Citizen? Don't talk about Amanda's "fishy behavior", Citizen: you have enough guilt on your own plate!
