Amanda Knox’s Italian Prison Life



Sexual harassment and sexual violence has always been part of prison life for female inmates and male inmates. The sexual preying can come from the guards or inmates.  There were numerous articles written about the sexual harassment suffered by Amanda Knox. The world pretended shock at such terrible news, but will quickly and quietly forget what prison is like for many inmates  not only in Italy and the United States, but prisons everywhere. As reported in one article, “Who Watches The Watchmen” , inmates at the notorious women’s prison in Alabama are constantly under threat of sexual attacks. Male inmates face the same threats of sexual violence from their fellow inmates. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has estimated that 12-14 percent of inmates have been sexually assaulted. The sexual harassment of Amanda Knox is not acceptable, but she was lucky that the actions by the officers did not go beyond words.

How terrible.

During that time, she wrote in her diary:

“Please oh please, let it not be true. I don’t want to die.”

Reblogged this on and commented:maybe just maybe the caofrlinia department of corrections will finally be punished for their crimes against humanity. i’m no bleeding heart by any ones measure. i believe that the death penalty should NOT be abolished. at the same time i’ve been locked up and i know how screwed up c.o.’s can be. i also know how it feels to think that they can get away with murder or anything they want to perpetrate upon me because they are a part of the legal process. people need to continue to pressure caofrlinia to change their penal system,… Read more »
