Succumbing to peer force, we viewed the Amanda Knox documentary this week.
I experienced obscure memories regarding the tale from 2007.
Meredith Kercher, a student that is british in Italy, was indeed discovered dead in her own room, her throat slit.
Within times the authorities had arrested her roomie, a 20-year-old US girl called Amanda Knox, and Knox’s boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.
Just What then followed became a sensation that is international the tabloids salivating throughout the salacious details – was it a medication fuelled sex-game gone wrong?
Ended up being Knox, as you paper called her, ‘Luciferina using the face of an angel’? Knox and Sollecito had been discovered responsible, after which acquitted, found responsible once again, after which in 2015 both had been announced innocent by Italy’s court that is highest.
The documentary does not expose any details that are new the scenario.
I became kept because of the impression that We had before – that a miscarriage of justice had taken place but eventually my sympathy lay with Meredith in addition to Kercher family members who possess never accomplished any style of genuine quality.
The things I did discover ended up being an appreciation that is newfound of misogynistic the news protection at that time had been in addition to influence which had upon the outcome it self.
Knox’s family members circulated a declaration saying that“the attacks on Amanda’s character in much of the media and by the prosecution had a significant impact on the judges and jurors and apparently overshadowed the lack of evidence in that it was clear to them.
