Amanda Knox Appeal: Now That Amanda Is Free - A New Cause For The Fight Against Injustice

May 3, 2012 - It was a hard ride for many supporters of Amanda Knox, but in the end justice won out over lies and corruption. It was not the so-called 'PR Machine' nor the compassion of any government that led to Amanda Knox being set free last October 3rd. It was you, the many thousands of you who would not stand for such an injustice to triumph. It showed what the common people can do when they stand together against an injustice; It was the power of public opinion, and it's effect on courts and governments who seemed content to remain indifferent. It was massive non-violent public opinion at it's finest. And Amanda Knox went home to Seattle after four years of injustice because enough angry people refused to remain silent, and demanded that truth win out over lies.

It doesn't happen often, but it happens when enough people take a stand and speak-up. Sometimes though, when there are not enough voices to be heard, the other 'Amanda Knox's' of this world do not get to go home. The world is full of such victims simply because there is not enough support for them. Injustice triumphs when there are too few to oppose it. Such is the case of a young Australian woman who has been locked away on the island of Bali in Indonesia for almost 8 years. Her name is Schapelle Corby, and she desperately needs the world's help.

After many years of indifference by the majority of people in her own country, I invite the people of the world to familiarize themselves with her plight, and lend their support for her cause. I have started a forum on her to create a global awareness of her case, and the deplorable conditions of her imprisonment. Like the Amanda Knox case, Corby was the victim of corruption, lies, false news stories, and a growing indifference brought about by the silence of her own home government. Her plight is not unknown, yet the average person outside of Australia has never heard her name. To go to the forum I started up just last month just click on the link below.   The forum is open for comments and discussion, and provides links to information on her case. I have included a photo of her below. There are many others and videos concerning Schapelle Corby at the new forum. It is my hope that what the people of the world did for Amanda Knox, they can do for this girl. If we do not stand up for her- she will not survive.  schapellecorbyfreedomforum.blogspot.com








This is an independent forum and this is not to suggest any endorsement by Amanda Knox. I have no idea if Amanda is even aware of the Schapelle Corby case. Hopefully she is.

Thank you Kim. Although you posted the links for expendable and people for schapelle corby they can not be clicked on in the comment section. I have provided clickable links to those sites on both the amanda knox forum and the schapelle corby freedom forum. I just put them on and have tested them- they work.
I did get a look at people for schaelle corby when I tested the link. I saw the comment by someone named jenny who obviously is not aware that the forensics in that case were trashed long ago by an independent panel of experts that was appointed by the head judge of the appeal. That only made it official as many forensic experts from around the world have always agree there was no reliable trace of amanda knox in the murder room. As I had often said if amanda was in the room she had to have been wearing a spacesuit.
As far as jenny fearing dilution through the amanda knox site I don't think she realizes that the new site has no mention of amanda knox and is called the Schapelle Corby Freedom Forum. Perhaps you should have posted the link to the corby site also so dear jenny did not panic. : ) Both sites are separate and distinct- except for the 1 post I put on the amanda site in order to inform amanda knox supporters of the schapelle corby case. She needs all the help she can get. The objective is to turn thousands into millions- when that happens the cookie on this injustice is going to crumble. Thanks Kim. Best regards.

I haven't studied the Amanda Knox case closely, but what I've read convinced me of her innocence - including the "Forensic" angle you refer to, plus the "Occam's Razor" theory of reasoning. What's more likely, a lone male sexually assaulting and killing a woman, or a young woman with a perfectly normal, peaceful background acting in ritualistic cahoots with the aforementioned murderer? You need very little deviation from the norm to explain the former, while the latter is beyond bizarre. I made a similar analysis of Schapelle's situation here: http://womenforschapelle.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/schapelle-corby-occams-razor.html I also very much appreciate your interest and help in Schapelle's case. I assume you're in the States? Hubby and I visited last year, and I remember chatting to someone in Salem (home of the witch trials), about Schapelle, and they immediately informed me about Amanda's case, and the similarities. I think there's very strong undertones of a public "Witch burning" in both cases - and that still seems to to bring out the irrational in some people.

Kim- I used the Occam's Razor theory a couple years ago for the Amanda Knox case but that can be manipulated due to one of the conditions being "all things being equal...". If everything is straight up across the board- it's easy to apply, but when the 'deck is stacked' which is the case with both Knox and Corby due to lies and media smears. For instance, in the Knox case- what would tend to be the simplest explanation- That a so-called normal girl killed in a satanic orgy??? Or- That there was a big conspiracy involving the prosecution and media??? If you see what I mean. The deck was stacked against her.
As for the 'witch burnings' yes I think there is a little of that in both cases. Some people seem to delight in a young good looking woman taking a fall. It's just one more thing that has to be overcome by their supporters. What really bothers me about Schapelle's situation is that a lot of people seem to have given up on her; the reversal of public opinion where most now think she is guilty- particularly in Australia. Let's see if we can't flip that around. The way I see it, there is one big difference between the Knox and Corby cases, and that is there was much more support for Amanda, both in the U S and global. People did not get indifferent- there was too much happening all the time. For Schapelle cause, we have to breathe some new life into this- create the news- get the common person's attention -particularly in Australia. One simple test proved this- On a google search I did last week- typed in Schapelle Corby with results of 500,000 (rounded off). Then typed in Amanda Knox, with results of 15,000,000 (rounded off). That is basically 30 to 1 results. We have our work cut out for us.

I don't think I put that the way I meant it : ) What I meant was that the concept of Occam's Razor can be applied to several different problems concerning the Knox case. Is the simplest explanation really that Knox was innocent but that the prosecution was crooked and that the media was lying? Particularly if you throw in that the media was making Knox out to be the kind of girl that would do something that off the wall. In that particular case it was difficult to apply the concept as far as the public would view it because of all the lies- it paints a false picture. Of course if you simplified and just applied the concept to Rudy Guede vs. Amanda Knox- then of course the simplest and most believable explanation would of course be Rudy Guede having a criminal history, where Knox did not. You will rarely see a case made that complex, however Schapelle's comes pretty damn close. It seems that the more complex the case is- the harder it is to get them off the hook.

I don't know why, but logic and common sense where often forgotten in trials, where media and jurors are looking for very complex but unlikley plots, that resamble detective stories.
In Amanda's case, the story of a thief who entered in an appartment and killed the victim is very simple and common. On the contrary, the Mingini's hypothesis of satanic orgy implies a lot unnecessary assumptions, that can be easly shaved away with Occam's Razor.
The Schapelle's case is the same: it's well known that international airports are full of rings of corrupted baggage handlers why utilize the bas of innocent passengers as a vector for drugs. I you try to digit on Google something like drugs and baggage handlers, you can get a lot of articles like this

and it is only the top of an iceberg.

If you sum this to the fact that MJ is very very cheeper in Indonesia than in Australia, you can easly realize that the "drugs was planted in her bag" hypotesis is very very likely, instead of the total loss "upstream smuggling" alleged operation.

Quite correct- It's too bad many people can not see the simple absurdity in believing Schapelle is guilty. While common sense points to her being innocent some people simply choose to believe she is guilty. As far as I can see, the people who think Schapelle is guilty are simply ignorant of the real facts. Hopefully they will get an education.
