165. your imputation that I said that Knox's trial was political is scurrilous,
Edited on Fri Dec-11-09 03:16 PM by Joe Chi Minh
but not surprisng. In the most general way imaginable, I said that all judical processes are political, simply because politicians make the laws - in the US, they are often called, law-makers.

However to decribe Knox's trial as political is no less farcically dishonest today than it was when the risible claim was initially made.

'You still haven't spoken to the character attack that began with the indictment. Do Italians believe that debauchery leads to murder? Amanda was at first a drug-crazed slut; then she became a drug-crazed murderer'

Utter rubbish, as usual! I had absolutely no quarrel with the judges summmation. If you think for a minute, you might recall it was you who had that problem. I wouldn't call it an attack. I would call it a description. You also missed out that she is heartless liar, who bore false-witness to incriminate an innocent man - who in any case lost his business, as a result of her lies. In earlier times he might have been physically crucified.

'Mignini started ugly, and he finished ugly.'

What sort of infantile remark is that? My patience with your emotional idiocy is nearing its limit. Do you think maybe Manson's judge did the same - since you raised the comparison, seemingly ironically. 'Started ugly ands finished ugly'? Why not look at the facts of the case and speak to them, instead of pouring out all this emotional loghorrea. Don't bother to answer. We all know why. She hasn't an evidentiary leg to stand on.

You might choose to be careful in your excoriation of the judge, or you could find yourself the object of a lawsuit. People who work in the law tend to be less reluctant to go to law.

It's interesting that it is you who used the word, 'slut' and 'murderer' in relation to Knox. Like the judge, most people expect that she did not wield the knife - although she might as well have. I used the word' debauched' because I consider the word, 'debauched', apt enough in connection with an act of predatory promiscuity that did actually lead to a murder. No fantasy about it.
