According to Vixen, my saying;

"Raffaele did not take inventory of the cottage.. he said that [that nothing was stolen] because he noticed items of value - items you would expect to have been stolen if a burglary had occurred - were sitting out in the open."

meant I believed;

"Wasn't he supposed to be a seasoned burglar who specialised in stealing laptops...?"

So Stacy, are you saying that THAT didn't leave you shaking your head in disbelief?

It's especially funny because when I demanded either the quote or an apology she quoted my original statement in big, bold letters as if it was painfully obvious it was meant to call Guede a seasoned burglar specializing in laptops. You just can't make this stuff up.

Vixen hasn't tried to explain herself since so my guess is she's now waiting for everyone to forget this latest bit of face planting.

Unfortunately for you, Michelli also cleared Amanda and Raff of stealing the money and credit cards.

Amanda was not "suddenly richer by the same amount". According to her bank records, she had made only one deposit in November (on the 5th) for $526.00. She noted on it "paycheck from local work?"

The dollar to euro exchange rate in Nov. 2007 was 0.675.
526 X .675 =355.05.

No evidence of her having any unaccounted for money, much less "the same amount" that was stolen from Meredith, was ever made in court. Stop making things up.

Interestingly, Guede was out of work and his rent was due. Amanda had over $4400 in her checking account and her rent money in her room. Guede suddenly had money to go out dancing and drinking and to buy a train ticket out of Italy. Hmmmmmm.....

Not for nothing but I do want to point out you do have one very impressive skill... you can make things up to explain other made up things, and then use that made up thing to make up something else like nobody's business.

I forgot who suggested it but it probably would be a good idea to get with NvdL... he could really use some good creative writing. The whole copy/paste thing is getting old - it's probably why he can't sell anything.

Make your mind up.
Having raped and killed your first victim would tend to throw most burglars off their game.

Use your mind.

Mental illness OTOH is something that causes distress to the sufferer and is often self-limiting. A person suffering a mental illness will expect the doctor to provide pills to alleviate the symptoms.

There is no prescription for an psychopath. They rarely seek help.

It is generally considered incurable. There are self-aware sociopaths who will take steps to modify their behaviour, but they are hardly 'ill'.
Citation...not from your backside. I'm not interested in bs.

You mean by selectively cleaning up all evidence of her and Raffaele in the bedroom but leaving Guede's behind? THAT kind of covering up?

Er. It is proof Rudy burgled the place because he is a seasoned burglar who liked to steal laptops. He didn't burgle anything on this occasion because he took to committing his 'first rape and murder' instead.

I can see logic is not your strong point. But you are expert at all that pulling out of the backside you are so fond of.

It means stepping outside of the cave, as it were, and seeing things as they are, not mindlessly reading off from a PIP cave wall crib-sheet.

According to the British Journal of Psychiatry:

Quote:
Results Whichever of the four concepts or definitions is chosen, it is impossible to conclude with confidence that personality disorders are, or are not, mental illnesses; there are ambiguities in the definitions and basic information about personality disorders is lacking.

Conclusions The historical reasons for regarding personality disorders as fundamentally different from mental illnesses are being undermined by both clinical and genetic evidence. Effective treatments for personality disorders would probably have a decisive influence on psychiatrists' attitudes.

Quote:
At present English mental health legislation, which dates from 1983 but had its origins in the recommendations of a Royal Commission in the 1950s, distinguishes between mental illness and psychopathic disorder, but the Government intends to abandon the concept of psychopathic disorder and introduce a new ‘broad definition of mental disorder covering any disability or disorder of mind or brain’ which will cover personality disorders as well as mental illnesses (Department of Health & Home Office, 2000).

Yeah...but the problem with this is that the only person who actually left DNA INSIDE MEREDITH'S VAGINA OR ANYWHERE ELSE was...drum roll: RUDY GUEDE.

NEXT!

Well, TC...there is just so much craziness being flung by a certain person that I have to be particularly picky about what makes me shake my head in disbelief. Yours is "head shaking" worthy but I have to hold some in reserve for future candidates.

Don't you just love that Vixen out of thin air or out of her colon says that Amanda sexually assaulted Meredith? Absolutely NOT a shred of evidence to prove it.

Guffaw! Would you care to explain Guede's DNA being on Meredith's purse from which her money, credit cards and (likely) at least one cell phone were taken? Let me guess; he was moving her purse so they had more room to have consensual sex on her bed, right?

I see logic is not your strong point. Pulling thing out of your ass is your strong point, not mine. I give citations. You just make false claims.

Oh dear, oh dear. How many times will you ignore the fact that bleached/colored hair (which Amanda had) is easily distinguished by looking under a microscope? NO HAIR WAS PRESENTED IN COURT AS EVIDENCE, MUCH LESS ONE THAT HAD BEEN BLEACHED/COLORED. Why is that, Vix?

I'm going to sit back and just wait for you to try and spin that little fact.
