Amanda Knox wishes Italy was like US where a black man in jail means whites go free

Amanda Knox is disappointed with the Italian judicial system. In America of course, if you can pin the crime on a black guy, white perpetrators go free. For the 2007 murder of Meredith Kerchner, African male Rudy Guede is serving 16 years, but Italian judges are convinced he was an accessory. And remember, first Knox tried to give them ANOTHER. Knox is appealing her slander conviction for falsely naming Patrick Lumumba, and now, instead of speaking appreciatively of her two year respite from prison after political pressure muddled an appeals court reversal, Knox says she “expected more”. Not just that, she reminds us “this isn’t going to bring Meredith Kercher back.”

Post-Zimmerman, post Troy Davis, post Goddamn Iraq War, torture and war crimes, it could easily be argued that any nation has better courts than the US. Italy’s in fact convicted CIA agents who kidnapped an unconvicted suspect in Italy and rendered him for torture. In what other Western courts have today’s most grotesque perps been brought to justice? Italy has called for the agents’ extradiction but the US is not complying. Now American yahoos are cheering about resisting Knox’s extradiction. Both Knox and the CIA gents have been convicted and sentenced. Meanwhile the US is insisting that Julian Assange comply with extradiction and he’s not even charged with the crime.

I don’t care if Knox is extradited, or goes to prison. I’d rather no one did, she’s probably learned her lesson. How likely is it she’ll kill another roommate or follow another drunken murderous impulse. A psychotherapist ought to be able to assure us whether know is tapped out. Inequal justice isn’t rectified by punishing one side more.

What upsets me more is the pageant of Knox’s contempt and dishonesty to which the media offers no critique. It’s become the familiar meme of the 21st century, unblinking denial. There were psychopaths before George W. Bush, but I believe he pioneered the role as foil to modern media’s knave. There is no honor, there is no accountability, and on TV it isn’t even missing.

Meredith Kercher not white enough to extricate from Italian justice imbruglio

Or was it because she was British and not American? In WHERE-DA-WHITE-WOMEN-AT NEWS, American white fixation Amanda Knox and cohort have been set free in Italy, leaving authorities to wonder who else could have scrubbed the murder scene with bleach, contrived it to look like a break in, while the pair were home, among the many incriminating clues. Have you noticed that when affluent white people are accused, the investigation is always “botched,” police are always biased, and victims turn out to be of ill repute? For accused black men like Troy Davis on the other hand, it’s the chair. The arrest of Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak and his wife suggest you can also keep a physician on hand to divert jail time to the nearest hospital.

Berlusconi gets another church thrown at him…

Only this time it’s the actual Pope getting in his face, rather than a statue of a church. About having relations with a teen prostitute. He dismissed the accusation as Politically Motivated and vowed to punish the magistrates.
“I Am Your Emperor, Obey Me!! (paraphrase, because he’s not going to stand up to the REAL Empire anytime soon)
 
Not looking good for Silvio. Seems a bit snotty to say that about him, but there’s something about His Merciless Majesty that just doesn’t inspire kind thoughts. I just would a heap rather they throw war crimes charges against him.

From our favorite Fascist (and church-statue Target…)

Ok so he didn’t personally approve it
But, here’s a little censorship for us from Sunny Italy, where you can find the famous Italian Sunny Beaches, like the prosecutor in the case linked above. Seems some juvenile delinquents posted a video on Google of them committing a Hate Crime against an Autistic kid. Four of them. They were then expelled from school. Good, yes? But not so fast… for the “crime” of not seeing the video before it was posted on their site, the top dogs of Google were slammed with criminal prosecution in Italy for “privacy laws”.

Remember that Berlusconi was praised by Bush often for being one of his most Loyal Puppet Dictato errr… “allies” in the Koalition of the Killing.

He’s also a Fascist in everything but name. So, were his Minions really all that concerned about the privacy of the kid who was harrassed and apparently more than once assaulted? No.

They’re concerned more about the Mussolini-jugend junior Skinheads who boasted of committing a felony, took videos of themselves doing it, and posted it on the internet.

You know, they should ENCOURAGE people who commit Hate Crimes to do a video confession and post it voluntarily publish it.

The Skins were expelled from school, which is a big deal in Europe. There you’re probably not going to just move to the next school district and re-enroll.

But in all of it, there was no mention of any prosecution of them for what’s a Felony in civilized areas of the world. Even in really Socially Retarded areas like Texas and Colorado.

I usually do better with the Latin languages than the Germanic, but I don’t know how to say “untermenschen” in Italian. So I’ll leave it with the fact that the Fascists were every bit as guilty of Death Panel style euthanasia of the mentally ill, mentally retarded and other disabled people. Their proposed method for eliminating polio was to just kill the people who had it. I’ve no reason to believe that Berlusconi, so deeply in love with the image of Mussolini in all other areas, would be any different in that.

“The Worlds Most Persecuted Man”

Berlusconi. Yeah, in true right wing Crybaby fashion, he’s trying to outdo Rush Limbaugh (who was paid more than a billion dollars according to some sources, to spew his Anti-Everybody Hatred and Corporate lies) and Weepy Beck, in putting himself out as equivalent to Christ on the Cross.

The First Italian since Mussolini to declare himself above any laws, unlike the political prisoners he holds on behalf of Deposed Monarch Richard Cheney he’s never spent an hour in jail…. But he’s “persecuted”

Professional Victimhood has hit an all-time Low Standard. Leave us take a few moments to shed some Crocodile Tears for poor, persecuted Silvio Berlusconi.

Ok moment is officially past.

Italy’s emperor gets hauled down

berlusconi.jpg Silvio Berlusconi reminds one of an Italian version of the fascist-leaning Fox News owner, Rupert Murdoch. Both own the press and in Berlusconi’s case, he even bought the top political position in his country though Murdoch likes to stay in the shadows and just buy the politicians. But now Italy’s emperor gets hauled down to the ground by his wife! She accuses him of being the sugar daddy for a 17 year old girl… Oh Slick Willy!

PROFILE of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi

“That’s enough, I cannot remain with a man who consorts with minors,” Ms (Veronica) Lario was quoted as saying in La Repubblica.

“I read in the papers about how he has been hanging around a minor – because he must have known her before she was 18 – and how she called him ‘Grandpa’ and about their meetings in Rome and Milan.

“This is no longer acceptable. How can I stay with such a man?” La Stampa quoted her as saying.

She also said Mr Berlusconi had failed to attend his own daughters’ 18th birthday celebrations.

Well there! One can see that the Big Conservative Values Man of Italy has certainly fallen a bit short in the eyes of his current wife in the personal morality department. One wonders what Pope Rat thinks of all this? Will Silvio be forgiven in the eyes of the Church, if not his wife’s?

This Italian telenovela just keeps getting funnier and funnier. We want to say Poor Italy, but we really can’t, because they at least eat much better than we do in the US. Now where is Monica these days?
