News The Knox Alliance

What’s remarkable in this image that ornaments a very pro Knox story in the Seattle Times?
The T-shirt worn by Amanda’s sister, Deanne Knox, says: “Free Amanda and Raffaefle.” What’s remarkable is not the absence of Rudy, but the very presence of Raffaele’s name on the shirt. (Raffaele Sollecito is Amanda’s ex.) Why is it there? While in Italy, I heard with my own living ears Raffaele’s father dismiss Amanda. He wanted to separate his son from her (“a strange woman”). Why all of sudden this show solidarity? Pure PR. It’s not for us to see this T-shirt; it’s for the Italians. The Knox family wants the Italians to link Amanda’s fate with one of their own.
When will the mist clear from this case?
EDITOR'S NOTE: On October 3, 2011, Amanda Knox was acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher and released from prison.
