I just saw Amanda Knox.

 

amazing lady,  she made me realise this is the new world we live in now.....

 

how to manage to survive in this world is what so many need to learn..

 

me included.

 

my crime I was accused of  was so spiffing compared to the living nightmare she endured......... but strangely although never charged,.....never convicted........ even got the target, (my dog back) even 18 years later members of this forum still feel they can insinuate I probably deserved what happened...........

 

There are going to be tens of thousands yearly need to learn how this system works....

In this episode of The Scarlet Letter Reports, I tell the story of how my own character was assassinated in the media when I was arrested and put on trial for a crime I didn’t commit.

In 2007, I was just another twenty-year-old college student studying abroad in Perugia, Italy. One night, a local burglar named Rudy Guede broke into the apartment I shared with three other young women, and murdered the only one of us who was home at the time—Meredith Kercher. For the next eight years, Meredith’s murder made international headlines, but for all the worldwide attention the case received, few people have ever heard of Rudy Guede. That’s because the investigators, prosecutors, media, and public focused their attention, instead, on me.

My boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, and I were hastily arrested. The prosecution and tabloid media cast me as a femme fatale, a sex-crazed she-devil who murdered my roommate in a drug- and/or jealousy-fueled rage during a sex game gone wrong. It didn’t matter that I had zero history of violence or mental illness or criminal behavior, and that exactly zero DNA evidence placed me at the scene of the crime. The prosecution and the tabloids had already created “Foxy Knoxy”—a figure onto which people could project their fears and fantasies, particularly those surrounding female sexuality, and that was enough to convict us.

Raffaele and I survived four years in prison and eight years on trial. In March 2015, we were found innocent by the Italian Supreme Court. To this day, I combat harassment and attacks on my character on a regular basis. I get through it by thinking hard about the forces that lead to our dehumanization, how those forces affect other individuals in similar situations, and what we can do to stop our lives and our identities from being stolen from us.

think these headlines are england

 

 

but would love to know the figures for Australia

 

 

No stats exist even,or im not looking in the right places,  not good press so they aren't easy to find.. my friend Nancy's friend walked from her home after her chihuahua's were taken, she had 9, all problem one's, so her breeder friends gave them to her, rather than re home them to pet homes, many so tiny hypoglycemia was an ever present problem. rspca decided she was a hoarder and took them all.... she never came back... a year later she was seen living on the streets of Sydney but fled when she realised she had been recognised...

That is terrible and after reading the link to the UK reports it seems to be something that is not uncommon with dealing with the RSPCA in other countries as well.

They have a lot to answer for but sadly seem to be too busy lining their own pockets than what they purport to be.
