Amanda Knox Case Perplexing and Disturbing
It is a shame that Italian police do not videotape their interrogations. I have read an interesting analysis on a foreign blog, in which the author feels that Americans do not seem to grasp the risks entailed in students going abroad. If they are living "wildly" - drinking, using drugs, coming in at all hours of the night, and experimenting with sex - they will be highly suspect if disaster suddenly occurs in their proximity. Students should be warned, cautioned the blogger, to adhere to community standards where they are residing. Otherwise, one's credibility may be reduced, which certainly seems to be the case with Amanda Knox. addendum: Just read a press release for March 21. It seems they have proven - through an eye witness and a receipt - that Amanda was buying cleaning supplies hours after the murders; and that police say there had been an attempt to wipe up blood. Perhaps there was more darkness in these two sweet looking youths than was immediately apparent.
