Well, he would, wouldn't he seeing that someone definitely let him in the apartment,and it'd look better for him if he said she said they could have sex than if he admitted he raped her. But there was evidence of sexual assault. At least that's what I read. There was also missing money.
According to his version of events, they met a couple times before, so it wasn't like he was a complete stranger, but it also isn't like they really knew each other well when she invited him back.
What I read said that he was a regular visitor to the flat downstairs - where he hung out and smoked with the kids who lived there.
So if she had a great aversion to inviting men back to the apartment, she might have been getting over it
I didn't say she had an aversion to inviting men back to the apartment. I said she said she was concerned about being in a situation in which she couldn't control who came and went in her space. It happens all the time. I was roommates my freshman year in college with a girl who, from the first night we were there, had guys neither of us had ever met befor, sleeping in her bed in our room about eight feet away from my bed. I had no control over it and it made me feel embarrassed, unsafe, and vulnerable. I moved out within a week. I understand the feelings this VICTIM was expressing.
And apparently she did express her concerns to her roommate, because there was discord and actual 'hatred' in their relationship - it is reported.
Even if you watch the 48 hours version - the tall American black guy who was another student there and continues to live there says, 'The Amanda Knox we met in Italy was very, very different from the Amanda Knox that was described at home. Somewhere between her home and here, she changed.'
That also is very common. And the investigator who says, 'What honor student would kill someone?' sort of gives his bias away.
Drugs make ordinary people do things they would otherwise never do.
They kept editing his stuff before he could finish his thoughts.
That's my point. What's being presented in America is totally different from what's being presented in England (where the victim is from) and Italy (where it happened).
Obviously there's a lot of editorializing going on.
That's my main point.
But, although I guess no one can be sure, my gut feeling is that she's involved in some way. How could you listen to your roommate screaming in the middle of the night and not open the door to look in and check on her until the police break it down the next afternoon? And why would the Italian police railroad this girl like this? And if it was only anti-American sentiment - why would they string up on of their own (Amanda's boyfriend) in the same way?
