at least knox sr. always appears to be concerned. i’m more disturbed by the sight of sollecito sr., whose expression seems to be a permanent sneer.

Some choice photos indeed!

The glamour is certainly gone. Sollecito Sr still seems to be full of pep and as suave as ever though. Under different circumstances, one might even say he has the look of a lovable rogue.

The Knox entourage however…being in poverty doesn’t seem to have affected their diet. One would imagine that in being destitute, the one positive would be that you lose a few pounds. Instead, it’s lose lose for them.

But maybe, they’re not as poor as they claim. I wouldn’t comment on such things, only they have made such a fuss of how poor they are to every press outlet that will listen these last few months in order to garner public sympathy. It’s difficult to gain a sympathy vote on the back of a claim of poverty when you have to ‘roll’ into court.

Maybe one day Knox’s mother will reveal how long she was willing to let an innocent man accused by her daughter rot in prison after her daughter informed her that he was innocent. One could argue this is another symptom of sociopathy that may explain similar symptoms in her daughter? She seems to have thoroughly enjoyed her 15 minutes in the media and talk show circuit born of a victims vicious death. Like grifters peddling asphalt repairs.

Why do I get chilling images of figures over a cauldron muttering something about toil and trouble when viewing the horrifying picture of Anne Bremner in these pages.

Let’s not descend into comments about aesthetics. It doesn’t have anything to do with the overall trial or the outcome. Understandably, you’re probably going to overeat to compensate for the situation you find yourself in, which is probably what Knox’s parents have done. Whilst I agree that they’ve been vile in so many ways and tactless in others, making “fat” or “diet” comments lowers the tone of proceedings. If Meredith was fat at the time of death would we be saying the same thing? No. Same for those admires of Amanda’s looks- it might be something to point out or remark upon, but it doesn’t move the argument forward nor is it helpful.

Amanda’s on trail for because, weighing the evidence, and reading much of this brilliantly well informed website, she’s guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I don’t care how she looks, it’s her character and her actions that are on trial, as much as her parents and sisters. That’s what we need to keep in mind. Making these specious comments about a person’s looks is as vapid as those misguided fools that want to marry Amanda.
