Attacks me with derogatory language and has no evidence to back the claim that three people tied those very similar knots. I believe I explained well enough that the knots aren't that dissimilar at all and you are the one that doesn't know it.
"people do things like that consistently" like you have any idea what would be going through the perps mind at the time, do you really think he would be worried about his knots? ridiculous.
Just for you: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
You're making my point. A murderer would not be thinking about what type of knot they are tying, they would do it mindlessly. Hence, three different knots tied by three different people. Knots are distinguishable by who ties it, just like subtle differences in handwriting.

You're really showing your ignorance.

I can hardly believe you wrote this and then go on to say that the similar knots indicate multiple people when, as stated earlier they are very similar and the only real difference is the looping of the hitch, did you do any research on the knots used? we are not talking about a sheet knot compared to a bowline, they were all hitches, very common, and very similar.

They were all basic half hitches, varying only in how many times the knot was hitched. A square knot is a double half hitch, looping through again is a triple, etc.

Michael Moore, for example, was tied up with two double half hitches, a triple, and a quadruple. Are you saying it took three people just to tie him up?

It's far more likely that whoever did it thought "That's not very tight" and looped through again.

Guest is accurate about the knots. They were all basic half hitches. Look it up.

Actually, I'd think it says a great deal. The defense is less than a month away from a new evidence hearing where they can present a great deal of information that would have lead to a new trial for the three, and in the 11th hour, they offer to plead guilty to murder.
Exactly! Why would they do that??!!! If they really wanted to be set free and be innocent and pardoned and all that, why didn't they wait? Don't say cuz Daimien was gonna get killed. That's crap.
