Amanda Knox guilty: .01

Raffaele Sollecito guilty: .01

Rudy Guede guilty: .99

I've become highly familiar with this case since the verdict came down. Over the last 2 years, I've heard bits and pieces about it and all along had assumed Amanda and Raffaele were guilty. I'm a little embarrassed to admit how much time I've spent reading up on the case recently - I think I'm motivated to learn more because I'm perfectly appalled at the amount of misogyny (not necessarily anti-Americanism) I see from the prosecution and the European media with regards to Amanda Knox. I'm also appalled at how much rumor is reported as fact.

I consider myself to be highly familiar with both sides' arguments, but did as you suggested and also spent some time looking over both sites you recommended - my opinion did not change.

I'm pretty confident our opinions are shared.

Looking forward to your thoughts on this experiment of yours.
