    Thanks for that. It was quite informative. I'd like to get Laila's comment on what is said in that video. Though since she has stopped posting in this thread I doubt that we'll see one.

    I do think that kind of behavior hurts a defendant.

    How about you familiarize yourself with the facts of the case before you race to condemn this girl.
    When the news of this murder came out, I read up on the case. My gut told me she was guilty. I haven't read up on it recently. My gut still tells me she is guilty, although I'll take the time to read up on it again.

    I'll race to condemn her if I want to. You can disagree with me. Why don't you provide me with an argument as to why I am soooooooooo wrong about this and you're soooooooooooo right about this.

I'm honestly not convinced that Amanda and Raffaele had nothing to do with Meredith's murder, but I do believe that most of the evidence against them was circumstantial and that there was more than reasonable doubt as to their guilt. They should have been acquitted.
    I don't understand this line of thinking that no one should be convicted on circumstantial evidence.

    Lying isn't necessarily a sign of guilt of murder. There are other reasons someone might lie.
    I am aware of this. But you are insinuating that lying doesn't mean she's guilty. That's up to the weigher of facts to decide whether they think that hurts her credibility or not.

    So she admits she was in the place when Meredith was killed and put her hands over her ears when Meredith was screaming. Then she claims she wasn't present when Meredith was killed? That is a serious change in her story. Jesus.

    Because what "your gut told you" is not a good enough reason to support someone's incarceration for 26 years.

    She was interrogated for 14 hours, the police accused her of lying almost immediately, they told her that it would be better for her to not have a lawyer, and one of them allegedly hit her in the back of the head. How well would YOU stand up under those circumstances?

    Maybe because she was lieing and was caught in lies on day one? And who claims that she was hit or denied a lawyer, oh yea the person who was caught lieing. Just saying, her credibility is no higher than that of the Italian police at this point.

    Whether or not it hurts her credibility shouldn't matter if there is no actual evidence linking her to the crime. I don't care if she's a compulsive liar who has never told the truth once in her life...that doesn't change the fact that there isn't a single bit of actual evidence linking her to the murder scene.
