On the 10th anniversary of Meredit Kercher’s murder, Italian television show Punti di Vista invited some of the main figures from the Meredith Kercher murder trial on the show. They discussed the implications of the trial, the problems with the way the American PR media reported on the case and cleared up some of the biggest fallacies repeated about the case.
Our cat is actually the same as Amanda Knox. She cuts you in the middle of the night an then swans about like she aint done nothing wrong

Amanda Knox was convicted of calumny, slander, or lying for stating on two separate occasions that her boss, Patrick Lumumba, raped and killed Meredith Kercher. Amanda said that she sat in the kitchen covering her ears to block out the sound of Meredith’s scream. Amanda repeated this lie twice officially, once during questioning and once again the next morning she requested pen and paper and wrote about it. She told the same lie twice and never retracted it. At the time that she fabricated this story (or partly fabricated it since many lies have an element of truth to them) the police were unaware that Meredith had screamed. Many murder victims don’t have the opportunity to scream as they are strangled as well.
