Judge shows evidence of bias in Amanda Knox murder conviction
The Chief Judge who presided over the third murder trial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito has shown clear evidence of prejudice when he openly discussed the trial, saying the killing would not have happened without Amanda.
Alessandro Nancini gave an interview in Italy and admitted that the media was awash with the case, and the jury all followed the coverage with rapt attention and even acknowledged doing so.
Defence lawyers said the judge along with the panel are biased, and are seeking redress.
South African changes rules of NekNomination
The rule of the game where you are filmed gulping alcohol in one go, and nominating another who does the same on camera, was dramatically changed by a South African.
Brent Lindeque transformed NekNomination rule when he was filmed driving. He said, “The craze originated in Australia and I’m going to show you how South Africans do it better”. And Brent pulls up and gave a homeless man a sandwich, chocolate bar and a bottle of coke.
He nominated a friend to do same. And the world applauded his move, believing that the dangerous game which has led to many deaths may turn out positive by Brent’s action.
