The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."Keyser Söze" in The Usual Suspects
For the dead woman’s family, the appeals verdict brought no comfort. “It feels very much as though we are back to Square 1,” Lyle Kercher, her brother, said at a news conference in Perugia on Tuesday. He said he could not understand how a ruling that “was so certain two years ago has been so emphatically overturned now. It obviously raises further questions.”from As Amanda Knox Heads Home, the Debate Is Just Getting Started
One of those questions is about Rudy Guede, who in 2008 received a 30-year sentence for sexual assault and aiding and abetting murder in Ms. Kercher’s death, though the sentence was reduced to 16 years on appeal. Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito were never named in the ruling, which said only that he had aided unknown “others” in the crime.
“The courts agree that he wasn’t acting alone,” Mr. Kercher said. “If the two people released really were not guilty, we are left wondering what really happened.”
It's not just that Knox was falsely accused. It's that her entire life was ruined in the process, in the most vindictive and sexist way possible. At one point, Burleigh reveals, a police official posing as a doctor informed Knox she had HIV, and asked her to name all her previous sexual partners so they could be alerted to the risk. She did so, and only found out later that it was a trick — the Italian cops just wanted to know about her sex life.from Why Amanda Knox Is Completely Innocent And The Italian Justice System Is Utterly Insane
It's easy to see how Satanism remains hidden - the reality is just too appalling for most people to recognize, so they have to explain its symptoms in terms of phenonomena which they do recognize.
For example, I suspect that, by claiming that Guede had aided "unknown others," the Italian court was hinting at the truth - that Guede had been put up to it by organized Satanism, and perhaps by Knox's inquisitor Giuliano Mignini himself, for reasons related to his Monster of Florence inquisition. However, most people consider the court's statement to be either a mistake, or evidence that Knox and Sollecito were involved.
Another example is the claim that the Italian police told Knox that she had AIDS just because they wanted to know about her sex life, which is belied by the circumstances surrounding this incident, and by the abject amorality reflected in this "trick" and subsequent deeds. The fact is that they did it as SRA in the form of tormenting her with what she probably regarded as a sentence of an unfulfilled life and a slow death (even if she managed to escape Mignini's simulation of Hell), and in order to be able to further torment her by publishing the "salacious" details in the amoral Italian media. In the Book of the Law, Aleister Crowley commanded his followers to drag their targets' souls (probably meaning their psyches, considering that Satanists are typically existentialists) "down to awful torment."
