18. She is neither an angel nor the devil that they portray her as.

There isn't enough evidence to find her guilty. That's the bottom line. Every bit of 85 pieces of physical evidence in the murder room was connected to Rudy Guede -- not a single piece to Amanda Knox. This would be impossible if she were one of the attackers.

Your facts are incorrect -- probably based on tabloid reports of four years ago. She was never found with cleaning materials, and there was no evidence of bleach receipts presented in the trial. She had used a (non-bloody) mop from the girls' apartment to clean up a leak below the sink at Raffaele's cottage. But there was zero evidence presented that she or Raffaele cleaned up anything in Amanda's apartment. The murder room itself was covered with blood -- and bloody footprints, fingerprints, etc. It is ludicrous to assert that Amanda could have magically erased all signs of her and Raffaele's presence in the room -- fingerprints, invisible DNA, etc. -- and left only Guede's. If all three were involved in the attack, physical evidence from all three should have been present in the room in roughly the same proportions. But there was nothing from Amanda and , from Raffaele, only the now discredited bra clasp that the police lab claimed had his DNA -- but that the court appointed expert said had so much contamination that she could have found the JUDGE's alleles on it.

Appropriate emotion? You're really going there? She isn't an Italian given to histrionics. So a police investigator said that when he saw her in a restaurant having PIZZA three days after the murder, he immediately suspected her. Because, he said, a good Italian woman would have been in her room, still crying her eyes out.

This is a witch trial. And like witch trials of old, it's about controlling women, about women with "inappropriate behavior," and it's also about money.
