During an interview with amazon.com she actually said that the reason why she wrote the book was that she wanted to help others who could benefit from her experiences. I don't know whether she was sincere. She still seemed to feel sorry for herself and looked as if she was about to cry again. At this point I was really growing impatient with her after the various interviews I had watched. At one point I would expect people to get a hold of themselves and move on. So, it may still be one big pity ploy.
Keep in mind the BIG difference: Amanda Knox appears to be INNOCENT of the crime she was accused of. Expecting her to demonstrate remorse for something she didn't do to someone she barely knew is a bit unrealistic.
Exactly. I find it disconcerting that Amanda Knox's behavior is consistently being equated with a psychopathic personality (Jodi Arias), when all of the evidence points toward Amanda's innocence.
That is, that the Italian court and police system found Amanda Knox guilty, notwithstanding all of the forensic and circumstantial evidence to the contrary, the sloppy, incompetent, and biased investigation, the endemic corruption and abuse of power by the police, prosecutor, and judges, and the total disregard for Amanda's rights.
And yet, there seems to be this need to paint Amanda Knox as a person capable of cold-blooded murder.
Again, very disconcerting.
What is very interesting about this is that Amanda Knox, innocent, was behaving bravely and trying to put the best spin on a terrible situation. On the other side, Jody, who actually, finally confessed, and everyone KNEW she was guilty because the evidence was overwhelming, was acting "innocent" also because, as a psychopath, even if she DID heinously murder someone she claimed to love, it wasn't "her fault - he made her do it" and obviously, this professed "love" meant literally nothing to her.
So it is a very interesting comparison, but not for the reasons of comparing psychopaths, but for seeing that a psychopath can ACT innocent, even if everyone knows s/he is guilty. And they do it again and again and again.
