Is Amanda Knox guilty or innocent?
I watched the lifetime movie about her and then did more research on the murder of Meredith. But I can not decide if she is really guilty or not. The courts found her guilty but I am not really sure what to think. What do you think? This is all opinion people!

The evidence against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito is overwhelming. They gave completely different accounts of where they were, who they were with and what they were doing on the night of the murder. Neither Knox nor Sollecito have credible alibis despite three attempts each. All the other people who were questioned had one credible alibi that could be verified. Innocent people don’t give multiple conflicting alibis and lie repeatedly to the police.
The DNA didn’t miraculously deposit itself in the most incriminating of places.
An abundant amount of Raffaele Sollecito’s DNA was found on Meredith’s bra clasp. His DNA was identified by two separate DNA tests. Of the 17 loci tested in the sample, Sollecito’s profile matched 17 out of 17.
According to Sollecito’s forensic expert, Professor Vinci, Knox’s DNA was on Meredith’s bra.
Amanda Knox’s DNA was found on the handle of the double DNA knife and a number of independent forensic experts – Dr. Patrizia Stefanoni, Dr. Renato Biondo and Professor Francesca Torricelli – categorically stated that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade. Sollecito knew that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade which is why he twice lied about accidentally pricking her hand whilst cooking.
There were five instances of Knox’s DNA mixed with Meredith’s blood in three different locations in the cottage.
It’s not a coincidence that the three people – Knox, Sollecito and Guede – who kept telling the police a pack of lies are all implicated by the DNA and forensic evidence.
Amanda Knox voluntarily admitted that she was involved in Meredith’s murder in her handwritten note to the police on 6 November 2007. After she was informed that Sollecito was no longer providing her with an alibi, she stated on at least four separate occasions that she was at the cottage when Meredith was killed. At the trial, Sollecito refused to corroborate Knox’s alibi that she was at his apartment.
Knox accused an innocent man, Diya Lumumba, of murdering Meredith despite the fact she knew he was completely innocent. She didn’t recant her false and malicious allegation against Lumumba the whole time he was in prison. She admitted that it was her fault that Lumumba was in prison in an intercepted conversation with her mother on 10 November 2007.
She seemed like a typical sociopath, her roomate said she was just laughing and acting like nothing happened after the murder.
She was promiscuous, and seemed to use lots of drugs... Not that these things mean she's a sociopath but how she acted, she just struck me as one... And sociopaths will have no problem murdering someone they dislike.
The guy at the hardware store or whatever said she saw her come into buy cleaning supplies which she allegedly doesn't remember.
The prosecutor said they most likely met up with rudy to buy drugs.. what kind of drugs? Meth can make you do some crazy things when you are in that state of mind. You think you can do anything, like you are a god.
I highly doubt her only drug of choice was weed. I'm sure she was high on something, coupled with the fact that she disliked her roomate already, and on top of that she's a sociopath... she's TOTALLY guilty.

My decision based on real events (and not the pro-female/anti-male Lifetime channel) is that she is guilty. Her story is very inconsistent, the way her parents acted, and how she acted was very odd. I do believe that the other man was lying, but only to save his butt. Knox was a drug and alcohol addict too.

A cute face and a good home can make someone look innocent, but they're as guilty as anyone.

accountable as sin she seems evil and is only too inconsistent in her memories i think of she replaced into to blame then rang anyone to look harmless i think she paid Rudy to do it and that could desire to be classed as homicide no longer an adjunct ect
