Amanda Knox, also known as ‘foxy Knoxy’, is getting more time in prison if her Italian prosecutor has his way, according to CBS News.
Amanda Knox, Foxy Knoxy, Getting More Time?
Amanda Knox, the American student studying abroad in Italy who was convicted of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher in December of 2009, may be doing more time. The convicted murderess was sentenced to 26 years for the crime; her accomplices Rafaelle Sollecito (also her then-boyfriend) and Rudy Guede were also sentenced.
But Amanda Knox, or ‘Foxy Knoxy’ as the press dubbed her, got more time than Rafaelle (he got 25 years), but Amanda didn’t get as much as Rudy Guede, who was sentenced to 30 years. Rudy’s sentence was later cut down to 16 years, since, unlike Knox, he didn’t try to antagonize the prosecutor or play games and give false testimony about innocent citizens during the investigation. Amanda did. And Foxy Knoxy got one more year than Rafaelle for that effort.
Amanda Knox, Foxy Knoxy, Getting More Time for Publicity Stunts?
In America, Amanda Knox supporters have waged an all out blitz campaign in the press since her conviction, attempting to paint the convicted murderess as an innocent student caught in a cultural and international battle between America and her detractors. But when that didn’t work, they sought to paint her prosecutor as a criminal himself. It isn’t the first time a criminal or their family attempted to influence the public in their favor.
Amanda’s Italian prosecutor, Giuliano Mignini, came under an investigation due to his inability to tolerate ‘the press’ and their interference with his investigations. A position many law enforcement agencies in America would be quick to applaud, if the truth were known, as many homicide cases risk damage due to press reports released sometimes. But the Amanda Knox family has attempted to paint that as a reason why their daughter is innocent of murder.
Amanda Knox, Foxy Knoxy, Getting More Time for Doing More Crime?
Amanda Knox is believed by Italian prosecutor Giuliano to have been an instrumental player in the murder of British student Meredith Kercher–Amanda’s roommate. And Giuliano made every effort in his court presentations to show that Amanda Knox played an integral role in Meredith’s demise. So in Giuliano’s case, you can see that as a prosecutor he must feel that if you do more crime; you do more time.
Any American prosecutor would love to have Italy’s form of law, in which they could sock it to a bad guy more than once in the sentencing department. Just ask the Chelsea King and Amber Dubois families and the law enforcement officials who worked those cases. Ask them if they think John Gardner should be able to play the blame game with the cops or the justice system and walk away for having done so. You’ll get a big fat ‘NO’.
Amanda Knox, Foxy Knoxy, Getting More Time: Many Americans Hope So!
Amanda Knox isn’t innocent of murder. Amanda Knox isn’t innocent of lying about her boss and trying to put him at the crime scene (she got sued for that one, and she lost). And Amanda Knox isn’t innocent as a schoolgirl (we’ve all heard how ‘innocent’ Amanda Knox isn’t). But Meredith Kercher is innocent of her own murder, and she was naive in trusting someone like Amanda Knox as a roommate.
And Chelsea King and Amber Dubois were innocent too, but that didn’t stop their murderer from snuffing out their lives, just like Meredith’s did hers. Italian prosecutor Giuliano may be guilty of getting fed up with press accounts that threaten to enable him to put away killers like that of the King and Dubois girls, but he should get a medal for that–not a conviction. And Amanda Knox, that Foxy Knoxy American bent on sex, drugs, and murder, shouldn’t be allowed out to do more damage to America’s reputation, or the lives of other innocents abroad. It sounds like Amanda Knox is right where she belongs.
