The Education of Amanda Continues

posted by on July 11 at 11:19 AM

Amanda is formally charged with murder:

Prosecutors investigating the killing in Italy last year of the British student Meredith Kercher today laid formal charges of murder against her American flatmate, Amanda Knox, Knox’s Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, and Rudy Guede, a citizen of the Ivory Coast.

A judge in the central Italian city of Perugia must now decide whether they should be put on trial. Because of the gravity of the charges, under Italian law the judge must now arrange a closed-doors preliminary hearing to review the evidence and decide if there is sufficient evidence for an indictment.

This is Amanda months and months before the murder of her roommate, Meredith…

If she is tried, found guilty, and sentenced, this might be her in some sad and sunless cell in the far future…

EDITOR'S NOTE: On October 3, 2011, Amanda Knox was acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher and released from prison.

Please explain 2 things to me...PLEASE.

1. Why are you so convinced she is innocent? What PROOF do YOU have that the prosecutors don't?
2. What the hell does her in prison have to do with Natalie Merchant?

I'm an effigy, a parody
of what I appear to be.
Put your flaming torches under me.

The fetishization of Amanda

Posted by Non | July 11, 2008 11:36 AM


Self-parody doesn't suit you. Please find a new, preferably long-deceased, woman to mythologize; Amanda Knox is still alive and doesn't need to be eulogized by you.

@2: Yeah, pretty much.

I hates me some Natalie Merchant. Don't do that to my darling Knoxy!

Best Mudede Post Ever!

So if she's convicted her sentence will be to become a wealthy pop singer? Damn soft-on-crime Europeans...

The real question is: why isn't she already doing time for playing the accordion in public?

This post proves--proves!--that Charles Mudede hates both women and accordions, and is therefore a latent turntablist. Why a picture of Amanda Knox with an accordion? Why not a picture of Amanda Knox working two turntables? Iíll tell you why: because Charles Mudede only posts about things he hates--like women and accordions.

Charles Mudede, you are, like totally just like, a total hip-hop chauvinist pig. Well, I never!

Charles is like my roommate, who said if he was on the jury of any hot woman, he would campaign for he innocence and then ask her out on a date.

If he had just worked in a Star Wars reference it would have been a Mudede Triple Crown.

It lifts my heart to think of the tense feeling of satisfaction and wry smile that accompanied your clicking the post button for this. I applaud this erstwhile jab at your own manufactured mythology. At least I now know you have a sense of irony. That, however, does not make this post any less juvenile.

She might've stabbed her roomamte, but I'd DEFINETELY stab her.....sorry ECB

"Verdi Cries" is a great song from In My Tribe. And so is "A Campfire Song."

Posted by CommonKnowledge | July 11, 2008 12:28 PM

Okay, now these posts on Amanda Knox are getting creepy.

Well actually they have been creepy for a while, but still.

Posted by Kim M. | July 11, 2008 12:36 PM

#1 She's guilty.

#2 You just killed me by posting that pic of Natalie Merchant. Love it! I didn't get her from the moment I heard 'Peace Train'.

Thank you #7.

The facial resemblance is actually kinda uncanny.

Posted by Greg | July 11, 2008 1:16 PM

I'm confused, but Natalie Merchant looks like a nun who slapped my knuckles with a ruler in Sunday school.

Try as they (i.e. you and the PI that's been running that photo) might to add sex appeal to this story using the one or two GOOD pictures, of dozens you can Google image search, I'm still not buying it. Not buying that's she's innocent, or attractive, on any level.
