Wow! If you're looking for a good way to never fall sleep again, might I recommend reading this article about the Italian prosecutor who put Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito behind bars for the murder of Meredith Kercher, and crime they have always insisted they did not commit? Promoting a new Netflix documentary about the sensational case, Giuliano Mignini wants everyone to know that he's still sure Knox did it -- because she's a slut and people used to come up on the street and shake his hand.
"They would congratulate me," he says. "It gives me satisfaction."
"Normally, people say that 'nobody is a prophet in his own country,' " he says. "But that's not what I experienced."
If that adulation wasn't proof enough that Knox was guilty -- notice how Sollecito is never mentinoed -- he also points to the way SHE acted when THEY were arrested. Mignini says he was stupefied. "I have to remind you that her behavior was completely inexplicable," he says of Knox. "Totally irrational" ... because everyone knows there's a right way to act when you've been accused of a horrendous murder when you're very young studying abroad.
Then comes the smoking gun in the case.
"Amanda was a girl that was very uninhibited," Mignini says in the documentary. "She would bring boys home – and hearing Meredith's friends, if you could imagine a girl different from Amanda in every imaginable way, it would have been Meredith."
Oh, to be fair maybe I am leaving out one piece of incriminating evidence: He also "felt it in his gut."
God help us all if we're ever falsely accused of a crime with someone like this in the DA's office.
