The release of Amanda Knox....Some thoughts
After the release of Amanda Knox this week my initial thoughts focused on the following:
How Meredith Kercher's death has been completely overshadowed by the question of Knox's guilt. The complete failure of the original criminal investigation into the case. The media's obession with Knox that's turned her into a celebrity. There's been absolutely no interest from the media in her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who has also spent the last four years in prison. There's now only one person that's been convicted of Meredith Kercher's murder and that's the Ivory Coast drifter Rudy Guede. There seems to be few doubts that he was involved in Kercher's death, but I'm not convinced he acted alone.
