I watched the Amanda Knox thing with Diane Sawyer and I was surprised at the similarities between the way Ms. Knox acted after her friend was found dead and the way Jodi Arias acted after her friend was found dead. Both murders are claimed to have been sexually charged. Both victims suffered some pretty vicious stab wounds. Amanda Knox still says she wasn’t there when her friend was murdered — Jodi Arias said she wasn’t there when her friend was butchered either. Then Ms. Arias said she was there but ninjas did it. Then she changed her story to admit she killed Travis Alexander, but only because she was forced to defend herself. There are a few other differences too — Amanda did the splits while in the interrogation room; Jodi stood on her head. As innocent people go, neither of these women are very convincing.
Just as you might really be interested in the Colt’s latest draft picks — I’m curious about criminal trials. To the point I’d be in big trouble if ever a person of interest in a murder because suspect’s computers are always forensically analyzed — right? For example, when the prosecution laid out their case on Casey Anthony, I did the Google searches they said she did so I could see what the heck she found. A chloroform recipe search among the many others. While incriminating perhaps, there will never be video footage of me doing the splits or standing on my head if questioned for any crime — especially murder. What’s wrong with these women?
The craziest part is… there’s money in freaky killer women stories. Amanda has a new book. Jodi has already written and autographed her manifesto and a movie is in the works and she’s selling her artwork online. All because of people exactly like me who SHOULD be more interested in the Colt’s latest draft picks. Or photography. Or making sure baby socks aren’t still stuck in the arms of shirts pulled from the dryer.
