    I don't think it is true she did not have an interpretor because the interpretor was one of the people she accused of hitting her over the head back then. She had also said the interpretor was very rude having been woken up from their sleep to come back to the station.
    Jessica2012, do you think Amanda insisted on going because she was afraid to leave RS alone and what he would tell police?? The way you wrote it just now, made me have kind of an Aha moment. I had never actually thought of it that way before.

    What do you think?

    It is rather odd that she followed him around everywhere, even to the police station. I don't know about the other way around, meaning if RS was the same way with Amanda after the murder. Could be, I just don't know because I haven't heard anything regarding that.

    I'm sure the supporters of her innocence will have a different interpretation (for example, she went to the police station because innocent and wasn't worried), but I have opposite interpretation: that why would someone want to go to the police station if innocent? If it was me, I would have rather stayed at home curled up in bed listening to music or watching movies on my laptop, or reading in Amanda's case. If RS was innocent, she would expect that he will just answer a few questions and come back home.

    I'm guessing it was AK since they are both in Seattle. At least it means Amanda hasn't fled yet!!

What I'm saying is that he could not have been forced to talk, just like no defendant can be forced to talk in trial.

    Also, it is not Rudy's job to "prove" that other people did it with him. It is not his job to "prove" anything. I am saying this because on this thread, many supporters of Amanda and RS are always saying that it is not Amanda or RS's job to prove their innocence or to prove anything in the case. So the same goes for Rudy.

    I'm just saying because it seems like a double standard when applied to Rudy, but Amanda and RS are exempt.
    At their joint trial, both RS And AK were represented by lawyers who were free to question any witness including the other defendant.

    In this latest appeal, facts were declared true based on the findings of a separate trial where the interests of neither AK nor RS were represented.<modsnip>

    I think they were both very paranoid. I remember when Rudy was caught, Raffaele had admitted being afraid Rudy would frame him. (Why fear this if they had never met Rudy before?)
    Another telling sign was Amanda said Patrick Lumbamba scared her but when asked she said she was not afraid of Rudy at all.

    I do not think Amanda was afraid at all of being left alone. I really believe she thought Raffaele would turn on her, and she really wanted to know what he was asked and what he answered. I never got the feeling RS was afraid Amanda would turn on him, though she did once he took away her alibi. I think she always wanted to remain close to the investigation and monitor it's progression. There was no need for her to stay there at all if she was afraid of being alone, she would have gone home like everyone else did.

    Another thing I find odd is that in one of her interviews (I think it was the very first one after she was released with Barbara Walters) when asked why she broke up with Raffaele she replied that one reason was he took away her alibi and the second was because they were in jail and not able to see eachother. Now in my opinion, if police really harassed her into falsely accusing Patrick, wouldn't she have the same logic as to why Raffaele took away her alibi? She obviously didn't and broke up with him. All my opinion

    The chief investigator testified that he did order both suspects to be brought back in for questioning. The police department seems to have screwed up and only called RS.

    When Amanda walked into the police station that night, she was already in a sleep deprived state. The police had questioned her into the pre dawn hours of the morning every night since the murder had been discovered. She was allowed to go home, but called back each day after getting perhaps 3 hours of sleep. That Monday, she spent the day attending classes at the university, ran a few errands and had a late dinner with RS before going back to the police station.

    How coherent are you after getting only 3 hours of sleep each night for several days?

    One of her early stories was that she was afraid to be alone because of the murder and that she didn't have anywhere to stay, and because she was staying at Sollecito's apartment she went with him to the police station.

    She could have booked a room somewhere ... youth hostel, cheap hotel, but she was staying with Sollecito. She could have stayed at Sollecito's apartment while he answered questions too. I think they didn't want to be separated because they didn't know how the investigation was going and what would happen next, so they felt better if they were together.

    She did have an interpretor at the police station. The interpretor was Anna Donnino

    Do you mean that most of the conclusions from the trial were accepted by the appeal court, and only a few points were accepted for re-litigation? That's quite different than a trial were certain facts are declared true without defense arguments.

    ITA. That is very interesting about those comments re: breaking up with RS. What you said would be the logical thing in that situation - you would expect someone else in the exact same situation to have gone through what you did. And to be understanding of that, since same thing happened to you. She probably realized when she said it that it would sound odd, and so made up the "being apart from each other in jail" part on the spot and added it in after that.

    That goes along with the Guardian interview she did recently, where she was asked about RS changing his alibi, and she said (paraphrasing), that she was just really shocked, she couldn't think why he would do that, etc., etc., until finally the friend says "and because it wasn't the truth." And then Amanda was like, "oh yeah and because it wasn't the truth."
