Sitting quietly in the courtroom of Taunton District Courthouse at nine A.M. a packed audience, comprised mainly of journalists,  jumps up duteously.  His Honor has entered the room.  Massachusetts Taunton District Court, a newly constructed building, opened in 2011.  Bright, clean, sunny and spacious, the ambience seems intended to help placate its visitors; the masses of unfortunate souls who pass through the glass enclosed entrance many enduring the darkest times of their life.  A trial concerning a suicide strikes a collective nerve.

Michelle Carter is in court this week being tried for involuntary manslaughter for influencing 18-year-old Conrad Roy into committing suicide in July 2014.  There is more than one reporter live tweeting the trial and some very interesting information is being shared.

One new revelation is that Carter chose to not have a jury in her trial but only a judge decide her fate.  Another new insight is Carter has her own mental health issues that she was seeing a therapist for at the time of Roy’s suicide.  This was new news to the prosecutor who seemed skeptical about it.

Amanda Knox hater troll list – STDs blatant attempt to intimidate justice seekers

knoxtrolllist2

I’d like to take a moment to address a wordpress website which has me as one of the featured people.  It is a site called ‘Knox hater troll site’ and it lists individuals who understand the facts surrounding the murder of Meredith Kercher and who have exercised their right to express their opinion that Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede are all guilty.

The real title on that blog should be ‘Justice Seekers’ as that is what they are.  The Italian supreme court may have acquitted Amanda and Raffaele for ‘insufficient evidence’ but the murder suspects have NOT been found innocent of the crime. (Indeed Amanda Knox’s conviction for criminal slander or calunnia was upheld by ISC.)  Also in the court of public opinion, they are far from innocent.  This is shown in a recent article about Amanda’s accusation against an innocent black man for the crime.
