If you haven’t watched Netflix’s new documentary Amanda Knox, you’re missing out! Friday night, the documentary was available on popular streaming service Netflix, and is an in-depth look at what happened to Amanda Knox nine years ago in Perugia, Italy. Here are five things we learned about her, the case, and what went down.
Check it out:
5) Perugia is a tiny city.
We’ve heard falsely accused cases like this before where a small town needs to a point a finger quickly so satanic panic becomes the theme of the system. I didn’t realize how teeny it is, but this article will give you some sense. Like Paradise Lost, over time, judges, lawyers, and investigators get a sense of perspective about criminalizing evidence and how easy it is to point a finger when something absolutely horrifying occurs.
4) Delete your MySpace account.
Seriously, just do it. Ghosts come in all shapes, sizes, and photos:
3) Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox only knew each other for FIVE days.
Young love turned nine years of life ruining. It baffled me that the two only knew each other for five days. In a world of tinders and catfishes, stay smart, hunties.
It was really sweet when their second appeal is overturned and Knox calls Sollecito immediately to congratulate him.
2) Nick Pisa is a douchebag.
In the words of Joanne:
Netflix threw the ultimate shade too when saying “he still works in journalism.”
1) Knox now works for the falsely accused.
She’s made it her life mission to work as a public servant for the falsely accused.
