The Amanda Knox Defense And Italian Porn Stars

Milly D'Abbraccio italyArgh! The CNN Amanda Knox media drum beats on. Two more hours of straight coverage. It was the top story over the heath care issue. In the American media it’s a game of good guy versus bad buy with no gray area in between. (Or beautiful blond girl versus sleazy, corrupt, Italians.) 

One of the defense arguments is that Amanda Knox had a railroad conviction because of her sexually deviant and pot smoking lifestyle being Italy is a much more conservative country. Really? Is that what they are going with!? 

Italy is the country where a porn star, Milly D’Abbraccio, put a bid in to win a seat in Rome’s city hall–hoping to tap into her massive Italian, male fan base. Further on her campaign posters, Milly bared her porn star ass:

Would someone running for office in the United States be able to show their ass on their campaign poster? In 1960  Fellini’s La Dolce Vita introduced the world to marvelous breasts.  Mistrial! Mistrial!  Didn’t Italy convict one of their own (ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito) in the trial as well? Why isn’t Italy outraged at this “injustice”? Others say this is a representation of Italy’s outlook on women. (Not only that but also Italy’s outlook on the ex-boyfriends of women as well.)

A murder weapon was found with Amanda Knox’s blood on it. But it probably wasn’t blood but spaghetti sauce cuz Italians eat a lot of that. Strange, if this trial were held in the United States the evidence would still wield a conviction. (Extra especially for a black person.)
