I watched the Lifetime Movie about the Amanda Knox case several months ago, so obviously I'm an expert on the subject. Will she be found guilty? It sounds like it could go either way, which is one of the reasons why this is so fascinating. Other reasons that it's fascinating include:
- A pretty, innocent-looking girl has been accused of murder. Is she guilty, or is she a victim? Not knowing the answer to this question creates a real-life cliffhanger.
- It happened in Italy, where the justice system is completely different from ours. That sort of makes you feel like this could happen to you. One day you're travelling abroad, the next day - boom! You're in prison for life.
- Nothing is as it seems. For every "fact" about this case there is a question, and appearances are obviously deceptive. Nobody knows what to believe.
I guess I want to believe them.
And I want to believe Amanda Knox. It's sad that a girl got murdered. But it's also sad to think that somebody who is innocent is being punished for it, possibly for the rest of her life.
