8. Showing 8 foot high graphic murder photos of naked victims in open court
Edited on Tue Sep-27-11 01:03 AM by pnwmom
is NOT normal procedure, and contributed nothing to discussions of evidence in this case. The sole purpose was to inflame the jurors against Knox and Sollecito.

While the Kercher's grief is real, they were NOT required to ask for millions in damages, that was their choice. It was also their choice to start the civil trial for damages before the criminal trial had even been decided. And the actions of attorney Maresca are ALL about the money. To that purpose, he has been feeding the Kercher's need for vengeance.

Why haven't the Kerchers been objecting strenuously to Rudy Guede's sentence being reduced to only 16 years, with more time off for good behavior? He was the one whose semen was found inside Meredith, his footprints and handprints all over the murder site, and whose only alibi was that he was in the bathroom when some other unknown person murdered her; he also said he held her in her arms when he found her, and then left her to die alone rather than to call for help. Afterwards, he went disco dancing and then fled to Germany. Why aren't the Kerchers furious with the way he is being treated as almost a victim himself?
