    you are Amanda friend since you know the defenses' argument so well.

    Guede was a low life drifter with zero in common with anyone else involved... Amanda and Raffaele met at a classical music concert. Amanda went to a chocolate festival with Meredith a few days before the night that Guede by himself, alone, killed Meredith after raping her and robbing her and then fleeing to Germany.

    Amanda and Meredith got along, were friends. The prosecutions heated B- movie plot fantasies they spun out of nothing about being them enemies and revenge and sex games was utter nonsense from start to finish... The evidence they offered to try and back it up would be laughed out of any decent court in the US.

    Really, Amanda and Meredith got along well?

    The defense's argument is full of emotion, including the last minute plea but the evidence says other wise.

      pretrial leak fest of misinformation. The forensic evidence is extremely faulty. That alone is all anyone needs to understand. There is no way that somehow after the alleged 3 way violent assault the police and prosecution made up that magically somehow all the DNA traces from Amanda and Raffaele that should have been there in Meredith's bedroom in quantities similar to Guede's vanished? Did they go through with microscopes and pick up and test all the skin flakes and fibres and hair evidence in the room and selectively remove just theirs? Not even a Star Trek episode with something like that in the plot would be even faintly believable.

      A) there was not enough time to do it... and
      B) there is no microscope and analysis equipment capable of such a feat... did they have help from advanced beings?

      Or... maybe the real reason the DNA was not there because THEY WERE NOT THERE. And therefor DID not have anything to do with Guede raping and murdering Meredith at all in any way. They should never have been arrested and charged and never put on trial and NEVER convicted.

      Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
