Allegations that Raffaele Sollecito changed his "alibi"

The accusations that Raffaele Sollecito constantly changed his alibi are greatly exaggerated.  For reference see: http://themurderofmeredithkercher.com/Raffaele_Sollecito's_Alibi

Also it is confusing that these criticisms should refer to his "alibi." Sometimes they refer to his recollections of what he did, but other times they refer to the alibi he had for Amanda Knox.

1. Raffaele Sollecito originally told the police he had spent the night at his apartment with Amanda Knox. He did think later they previously been to a party, but that was still in Amanda's company.

2. The statement Raffaele made on November 5-6th was obviously coerced since it has him contradicting Jovanna Popovic's testimony that she saw both Raffaele and Amanda at Raffaele's apartment at 6:30 PM and 8:45 PM.

3. At his preliminary hearing, Raffaele did say he didn't remember if Amanda went out that night, but that she was with him at his apartment at 8:30 PM. This does not contradict his first statement at all. He even goes on to saying that he remembered her coming back with him. He only modified this in his book admitting he could not be aware of Amanda while he was asleep, but he reasoned out that if she had left his apartment, she could not have gotten back in without his key. So he knew she was there the whole night.

4. Raffaele was merely reaffirming his first statement to police. This is not a separate story at all. The statement on November 5-6th was so clearly coerced that it should never have been counted as his statement.

5. The only thing Raffaele and his lawyers did concerning Amanda's forced statements of November 5-6th was to point out that those statements did not place him at the murder. That is not disavowing his alibi for Amanda as calling attention to inconsistencies in the case against him.

As Hodges Did - Introduction

Introduction
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

Dr. Andrew Hodges started the introduction to his book, "As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox" by describing in general terms the subconscious mind and how it interacts with the conscious mind.

Then he applied this knowledge of subconscious intelligence to forensic profiling limiting the influence the subconscious mind has over the conscious mind to "guilty parties."

"To put it simply, murderers must confess. They must free themselves from what police call 'the prison of the mind.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 146-148). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges claimed that the subconscious mind expresses itself with symbolic language embedded into the words of the conscious mind. He calls this symbolic communication "thought prints."

There is no explanation for assuming this subconscious need to confess or even why the subconscious mind would feel imprisoned by guilt. Maybe it's the herd mentality or the need for social interaction. Dr. Hodges failed to mention that sociopaths and psychopaths may lack this association or need for social interaction.

Dr. Hodges also failed to mention that the subconscious mind can feel imprisoned by things other than guilt. An innocent person with normal herd mentality and the need for social interaction would still have a subconscious that needs to express itself to avoid the prison of its own separate identity.

Dr. Hodges' book purports to prove Amanda Knox's guilt, but Dr. Hodges had to start with the assumption of her guilt in order to claim that her so-called confession is hidden symbolically in her words.

"Missing motives lie at the center of the Amanda Knox case. Her super intelligence calls for a motive specialist trained in decoding her messages."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 158-159). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Assuming that his "super intelligence" is the same thing as the unconscious mind, if the unconscious mind has to confess itself to free itself from the prison of its isolation, what would Dr. Hodges have found encoded in Ms. Knox's words if he had started out from the assumption she was innocent?

To those who would protest that the subconscious cannot confess to anything it is not guilty of, how did Dr. Hodges decide Ms. Knox had any guilt to confess? Supposedly he is using his 'thoughtprint method' to prove she has guilt, but his method starts out with guilt as a given.

Besides, the first meaning of the word "confess" is to disclose or acknowledge. Guilt is only one of the things that can be disclosed or acknowledged. Why did Dr. Hodges only consider guilt to be the thing Ms. Knox's subconscious could be symbolically disclosing or acknowledging?

This book is really an demonstration of how Dr. Hodges created a hypothetical version of Amanda Knox into which he could build the guilt he expected confessions from. He would find words and phrases Ms. Knox used on which to build tangent thoughts he claimed were her "thoughtprints" confessing the guilt he had planted in the hypothetical Amanda Knox.

This exercise in futility would prove that his hypothetical Amanda Knox is guilty as he charged, but it proved nothing about the real Amanda Knox. It does prove what Dr. Hodges did to Amanda Knox.

As Hodges Did (01) - Payback Myth

Chapter 1: Crime-Scene Payback
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

There is not much to say about this Chapter one. It is a completely hysterical fantasy. It is nothing but conjecture of what Dr. Hodges speculated happened, but cannot prove.

Dr. Hodges at least admitted that the attack was between 9:30 PM and 10:00 PM. But there was no evidence confirming that anyone but Meredith Kercher and Rudy Guede were in her cottage apartment.

This first chapter of his book is Dr. Hodges' admission that he didn't start with an unbiased mind in analyzing Amanda Knox's communications for subconscious admissions of involvement in Rudy Guede's crimes against Meredith Kercher.

Whatever the hyperbole involved in marketing this book of his, Dr. Hodges started out with the assumption that Ms. Knox was guilty of the rape and murder of Meredith Kercher.

Dr. Hodges presented in this first chapter his preconceptions of why Ms. Knox would do such a thing as he hypothesized for her to do. He might have at least waited until the end to present this story as his findings, but he needed to establish the guilt he expected Amanda Knox to have to confess to.

As Hodges Did (02) - Building Rage

Chapter 2: The Rage Builds
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

Dr. Hodges needed to establish hostility between Ms. Knox and Ms. Kercher. He referred to All Hallows Eve (Halloween) as night of the Vampires. He didn't do that because Ms. Kercher went out on Halloween disguised as a vampire, but because Dr. Hodges would compare Ms. Knox to a vampire later. Halloween is really the night of the dead. All Hallows is the day of the Wiccan Calendar on which the Wiccans believed the world of the living was closest to the world of the dead. On the eve of this holiday, Wiccans believed that their dead relatives could return to visit. Hospitality was expected for the spirits who came knocking. Vampires had nothing to do with it.

The rage that Dr. Hodges speculated is exaggerations of what Ms. Kercher may or may not have meant by things she said about Ms. Knox. It's mostly hearsay, since most of it comes from Ms. Kercher's British friends who couldn't cope with Ms. Knox's lifestyle.

Dr. Hodges asserted that Ms. Knox was adrift without anyone to hang out with on Halloween because Ms. Kercher would not answer Ms. Knox's text messages. However, Ms. Knox did work a few hours at Le Chic before meeting with Spyros and his friends. And Ms. Kercher did respond that she had a dinner to go to, but asking what Ms. Knox's plans were. Even though Ms. Kercher signed off with XX for kisses, this text message supposedly indicated that the relationship between the two girls was fraying. Ms. Knox had not expected to be included in anything having to do with Meredith's friends who were hostile to her. Also, Raffaele came to walk her home at 1:45 AM. This is not the experience Dr. Hodges prescribed for Ms. Knox wandering aimlessly through the streets like a cat on the prowl. This Ms. Knox is really the hypothetical Amanda Knox he was constructing to model the behavior he wanted to assert.

Who told Dr. Hodges that Ms. Knox was brooding the morning after Halloween? Why would Ms. Knox be brooding after having a good time at Spyros and spending the rest of the night with Raffaele? Dr. Hodges even wrote in his fantasy that his hypothetical Amanda Knox didn't let Filomena know how she supposedly really felt about Ms. Kercher. And Dr. Hodges continued making up violence in the mind of his hypothetical Amanda Knox.

Dr. Hodges made a big deal over Ms. Kercher not waiting to show Ms. Knox her Dracula costume before going to an early dinner, but Ms. Knox was not there when Ms. Kercher left. Dr. Hodges did contradict his earlier assertion by acknowledging Ms. Kercher did respond to Ms. Knox's first text message. Dr. Hodges used Meredith's response to continue his fantasy that Ms. Knox would interprit it as an insult. All he had to prove this speculated insult was that Ms. Kercher failed to answer any other call or text message. That reasoning is speculation also.

How did Dr. Hodges know that Ms. Kercher didn't even have one picture of Ms. Knox? The police destroyed Ms Kercher's computer trying to access it. How does he know there aren't any pictures of Ms. Knox on that computer?

"She then alluded to the way the prosecutor had used Meredith’s brief text as 'proof' of their deteriorating relationship but stated, 'I didn’t expect to be included in everything she did.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 495-497). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges took Ms. Knox's denial of the meaning the prosecutor gave to the text message Meredith sent her as proof that the prosecutor was right. So if she had said prosecutor was right, would that be proof that the prosecutor was wrong? No matter how Dr. Hodges tried to build the rage he speculated in Ms. Knox, it is still just fantasy.

Dr. Hodges even tried to credit the title of Ms. Knox's book, "Waiting To Be Heard" to the memory of waiting for Ms. Kercher to answer her. Like everything else about his own book, he got it backwards. Ms. Knox didn't entitle her book, "Waiting To Hear."

Regardless of why Ms. Knox left Le Chic after a "while," all that word "while" meant was that she didn't work the whole night. Dr. Hodges and Mignini are presuming how much time that was the same way the police and prosecutors assumed "See you later" meant that very night. And even if Ms. Knox did spend some time by herself, that doesn't prove that she was building up a murderous rage no matter what opinionated Mignini thought.

Why would Ms. Knox who had never had any problem living her own life no matter what others thought of her growing up, suddenly become jealous and vengeful of Ms. Kercher because Ms. Kercher's British friends didn't accept her? Ms. Knox didn't need the friendship of those aloof and reserved British girls. She had found plenty of whimsical friends like herself. If Ms. Kercher wanted to associate with other people, what difference did it make as long as Ms. Knox didn't have to endure the hostility those British girls threw her way.

Dr. Hodges speculated that Ms. Knox overheard Ms. Kercher talking to the British girls about the stange men that Ms. Knox supposedly brought to the cottage apartment. But Sophie Purton was the only one who talked to the police about these strange men. Also, Ms. Purton testified Ms. Knox and Ms. Kercher “had a good relationship” and that Ms. Purton had never heard of any fights or significant problems between them. The only three men Ms. Knox brought to the cottage apartment were, Juve whom Ms. Knox worked with at the bar, Spyros from the internet cafe, and Daniel, a cousin of one of the guys downstairs. Ms. Knox's flatmate, Laura Mezzetti, testified that these strange men were Ms. Mezzetti's friends.

Dr. Hodges neglected to mention that it was likely that Ms. Kercher made up the dinner with friends as an excuse to let Raffaele use her seat to Raffaele Sollecito so that he could sit next to Ms. Knox for the rest of the concert. It's not as though Dr. Hodges thought Ms. Kercher had not noticed Mr. Sollecito standing to the side. Dr. Hodges made a point of how Mr. Sollecito had chosen Ms. Knox over Ms. Kercher. He went on to claim that Ms. Kercher envied Ms. Knox for this.

Patrick Lumumba's claim that he was replacing Ms. Knox with Ms. Kercher as Dr. Hodges mentioned is strange since when he was arrested, Patrick Lumumba told lead investigator Edgardo Giobbi that he had never met Meredith. Patrick Lumumba's  comments about wanting to fire Ms. Knox and hire Ms. Kercher did not become public until they were published in an article of the Mail Online November 25, 2007.  He also expressed bitterness against Ms. Knox over the false arrest. Likely, Ms. Knox only thought her reduced hours were due to Patrick Lumumba's business not doing well.

Dr. Hodges didn't get his facts straight. Ms. Knox didn't talk to her flatmates about having conflicted emotions about being with Raffaele while she still had a boyfriend from home. And it wasn't on October 30th. It was before she met Raffaele, and it concerned her fling with Mirko. Ms. Kercher may have had reservations about having more than one boyfriend at a time since she had broken up with her UK boyfriend before she met Giacomo, but Dr. Hodges gave no reference how he knew that Ms. Kercher had severely criticized Ms. Knox for her infidelity. It doesn't sound like something Ms. Kercher would do especially with the words Dr. Hodges put into her mouth. And Ms. Kercher wouldn't have done it in front of others or let it appear she was judging Ms. Knox.

And there was no "bathroom brawl." Ms. Kercher politely explained to Ms. Knox that the toilet needed cleaning with a brush since flushing wasn't enough. There certainly are people with a toilet fixation, but Ms. Kercher was not one of them.

Ms. Kercher had not set Ms. Knox to be coerced by "Shaky." Ms. Kercher had still trusted him because he had been so responsible when a mutual friend had been sick. Ms. Kercher apologized for not having mentioned that Shaky had tried taking Sophie to his home on his motorscooter against her will. She then suggested that when Ms. Knox had to come home alone, she text Ms. Kercher that she was home safely so that Ms. Kercher would know.

Dr. Hodges continued speculating on nasty thoughts he put into Ms. Knox's mind concerning Ms. Kercher on the morning of November 1st. Ms. Knox did write about Ms. Kercher's fake blood from her vampire disguise for Halloween. And she did use the term "lame" that is popular to her generation to describe something boring. It's Dr. Hodges that slipped in the subtle suggestion that Ms. Knox felt crippled by the imaginary hostility he attributed to Ms. Knox because she didn't spend Halloween with Ms. Kercher. Ms. Kercher's eager description of the party she went to may virtually shout to Dr. Hodges that Ms. Kercher unconsciously realized that Amanda was dangerous, but I doubt that such a concept would have occurred to the real Meredith or the real Amanda. Dr. Hodges revealed a lot about himself with this exaggeration of the missed communications on Halloween.

Dr. Hodges continued his fake history of his hypothetical Amanda Knox considering the drowning of the supposedly sneaky two-faced Meredith Kercher. The hysterical doctor had taken what at most were misunderstandings and converted them into the ultimate betrayal for not having called Ms. Knox back.

Dr. Hodges added his own speculation that Ms. Knox was talking about betrayal when she told Mr. Sollecito it wasn't his fault that his mother felt lonely unto death after his father divorced her. Mr. Sollecito didn't say his mother had ever made him feel like he had betrayed her. And Ms. Knox didn't tell Mr. Sollecito that Ms. Kercher had betrayed Ms. Knox at any time. That's Dr. Hodges' own imagination. Also, Ms. Knox didn't say her friends thought she was lesbian when she was in high school. She just said there were people in high school who thought she was lesbian. Dr. Hodges had to make it seem like it was her friends who thought she was lesbian in order to pretend it was a betrayal.

Of course Dr. Hodges had to pretend they snorted cocaine when they had gotten back to Mr. Sollecito's apartment. There is no proof that they were using cocaine, but Dr. Hodges wanted to assert that it would make their anger worsen. Marijuana would only mellow them.

Dr. Hodges used the Japanese "manga" comic books, Mr. Sollecito's knife collection, and Ms. Knox's Harry Potter book to add color to his fantasy of the sex game he imagined Ms. Knox suggested they play with Ms. Kercher. All of this humiliation Dr. Hodges believed Ms. Knox wanted to subject Ms. Kercher to makes me wonder why Dr. Hodges is so obsessed with this ridiculous myth. Did he think it was only a class assignment for a creative writing course? Gossip is blood sport.

This is no April Fools' Day prank. This is rape, and rape is not that hard to prove. Nobody would have believed Meredith would have willingly participated in a sex game. It would have indeed been their word against her word, and who was going to disbelieve the word of a prude such as Dr. Hodges had portrayed Ms. Kercher? So is this why Dr. Hodges thought the sex game escalated to murder? This is completely over the top for a speculated humiliation Ms. Knox never experienced.

Dr. Hodges went on and on about how Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito taunted and terrorized Ms. Kercher, but he had only given his reasons why he would have done it in their place. He never proved why they would have done it. It was all his imagination, but he had to tie Rudy Guede into the scenario. Regardless of there being no information that they had done more than meet one time, Dr. Hodges speculated Ms. Knox having personal information about Guede's life. Who knew that Guede had made a video of himself impersonating Dracula? Did Dr. Hodges mention this because Meredith disguised herself as Dracula for Halloween? Ms. Knox never said anything about Mr. Sollecito needing a manga fetish for his love-making. Where did Dr. Hodges get that idea?

What does it say about Dr. Hodges that he speculated that Ms. Knox wanted Guede to provide the added dimension of a strange other racial terror to the taunting and humiliation Dr. Hodges dreamed up for his hypothetical Amanda Knox to torment Meredith Kercher with? How did Dr. Hodges expect rational readers to interpret his non-contextual reference to Raffaele's webpage interest in "thrilling new experiences?" Did he really think we would take that seriously?

So Dr. Hodges slid Guede into the slot that the police had forced Ms. Knox to imagine Patrick was in when they wanted her to believe she went to the murder with him. Never mind as the police were wont to ignore that that statement was false. The police and Dr. Hodges just wanted Ms. Knox to incriminate herself no matter which black man they had to use to do it.

Ironically, Dr. Hodges didn't realize that he confirmed in his fantasy that Patrick Lumumba had not told Ms. Knox that he was planning to fire her or how else would Dr. Hodges speculate she wondered that when she got the text message telling her she didn't need to come in that night?

Dr. Hodges also speculated like all guilters that the reason Ms. Knox and Mr. Raffaele turned off their cell phones was to keep their movements untraceable. It would have been more effective to just turn off the ring tone leaving the phones to be still traced to Raffaele's apartment.

Again, Dr. Hodges speculated the use of cocaine that was not in evidence, and even guilters believe only what Guede says about Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito what they want to believe. There is no evidence that Ms. Knox or Mr. Sollecito had anything to do with Guede.

It's nice of Dr. Hodges to actually admit his inexact scenario is only a hypothetical story, but there is no evidence proving a building of rage simmering in Ms. Knox's mind reaching a boiling point and leading to a gang assault. It's all fabricated by Dr. Hodges to establish a false guilt from which to evaluate so-called "thought prints" to prove guilt using circular logic based on the assumed guilt he claimed the evidence proved but did not.

Dr. Hodges continued to read between lines that do not even exist. Dr. Hodges claimed that Amanda initially accused Patrick Lumumba of raping Meredith, but actually, the police had forced her only to accuse him of murder. Dr. Hodges claimed that Rudy Guede described seeing a white man similar to Raffaele, but the description Guede gave over Skype is of an Italian with a different appearance from Raffaele. Dr. Hodges didn't at that point indicate what sexual assault he read between the lines for Raffaele.

Dr. Hodges promised that his analysis of the "unfinished business" of Ms. Knox's subconscious mind will uncover the entire story. But the view his celebrated "thoughtprints" give is more like the patterns we see in constellations in the sky. Stars that seem to be near each other are really astronomical distances away from each other and not even in the same plane.

As Hodges Did (03) - Predestined Murder

Chapter 3: Amanda Knox, the Raging Ringleader
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

Dr. Hodges ended Chapter 2 with a comment the presumed the guilt of Amanda Knox. Presumably, he was supposed to prove that guilt from what she said and wrote, but he began this analysis with that assumption instead.

"Like most murderers, Amanda Knox can’t wait to secretly confess. In the very first chapter of her 2013 memoir, she depicted a scene which explains a major source of her deeper rage, her unfinished-business rage, the primal rage that erupted in the bloody slaying of her roommate on November 1, 2007."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 767-769). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Since Dr. Hodges had further contaminated his logic by assuming Amanda Knox is like most murderers," what difference did it make what his analysis of Ms. Knox's first chapter make? Dr. Hodges instead wanted to establish the existence of a "primal rage" he claimed caused Ms. Knox to kill Meredith Kercher.

"Early in her memoir, Amanda ponders the lasting effects of her parents’ divorce and all that it entailed, admitting that she consciously failed to grasp its full impact on her."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 791-793). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges wanted to use the divorce to distract us from his circular logic by asserting it was the reason that Ms. Knox developed a rage causing her to kill Meredith Kercher. Dr. Hodges also speculated that Ms. Knox was enraged because she had been conceived out of wedlock. Too many children have been conceived out of wedlock. Why was Ms. Knox different from the others? Why did it matter that she didn't mention something she didn't remember anything about anyhow? It matters to Dr. Hodges a lot more than it mattered to Ms. Knox.

"In her memoir she connects these key ideas: I am leaving for Italy in a short time. My father left me and the family after a short time when I was one and my sister was on the way. She implies that her trip far away across the ocean by herself for an extended ten-month period was certain to stir up memories of the divorce and a major separation issue in her life."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 786-789). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Ms. Knox had no memories of the divorce of her parents that occurred when she was only one year old. This memory Dr. Hodges alleged is certainly one of his lies. In twisting his opinions into the narative of Ms. Knox's life, Dr. Hodges is deliberately trying to portray his fiction as the truth.

One of those pieces of fiction was that Ms. Knox said she had a fair trial. What she actually answered the politician who asked her was that her lawyers did a good job.

"Experienced police detectives well know how guilty perpetrators who have dodged prosecution and punishment still live in a secret 'prison of the mind.' Their deeper moral compass eats at them daily.
....
Already in her memoir Amanda hints at what was behind the murder of her roommate."


Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 835-836, 840-841). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges again asserted Ms. Knox's secret impulse to confess. He used the common expectation that a criminal will be consumed by his or her guilt to plant the expectation that Ms. Knox had been leaving clues to her guilt in her memoir. There is also the common expectation that criminals only regret getting caught. Many criminal are quite capable of rationalizing their legal defects. Actually, most people are quite capable of rationalizing harm they do to other people. Dr. Hodges would have his own reasons for criticizing Ms. Knox for defending herself.


"Around age 14, Amanda quit visiting her father every other weekend after she and her sister Deanna were moved from a bedroom on their visits to a pull-out couch in the living room. Rather than put up with such slapdash accommodations, Amanda made up excuses for avoiding the visits. Although the demotion to the living room was apparently on behalf of her younger half-sisters, Amanda never expressed her hurt feelings or anger at her father."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 870-873). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges only speculated Ms. Knox's hurt feelings or anger over the pull-out couch bed. There's nothing wrong with that sort of accommodation which I have used myself. Dr. Hodges just needed an excuse for the rage he was constructing out of thin air.

"One dormitory friend said they all liked to smoke pot and 'get trashed on the weekends,' but Amanda 'really used drink and drugs,' not just to get high, but 'It was like she wanted to get away from herself as if… she could only cope with by getting wasted.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Location 881-883). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

If Ms. Knox were really as out of control using marijuana and alcohol as Dr. Hodges portrayed her, how did she get the good grades she did? This account simply doesn't add up. Did Dr. Hodges check out his informant? Maybe that person was jealous of Ms. Knox.

"For sure she was much more sexually experienced and 'liberated' in Seattle than she later claimed. You don’t get as out front as Amanda was in Italy about sex without having had significant prior sexual experience."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 895-896). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges admitted that John Follain reported that well into college, Ms. Knox was naive about intimate relationships compared to her female classmates. He still had to insinuate that she was oversexed in Seattle since it would later have a lot of kinky things to say about her sex. Actually, he had to exaggerate her sex life in Italy also. Her relationship with Mr. Sollecito was intense, but Mirko's kiss-and-tell was fantasy.

"She had no absolute need to tell the whole truth and, on some level, she knew police would eventually read her diary. As we will see, she blatantly left one name off her list, a young Italian she would later call 'Cristiano.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 904-903-905). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Ms. Knox never said anywhere that she had sexual relations with Cristiano/Frederico. In her book she said they didn't go beyond kissing and fondling because they didn't have a condom. Guilters are skeptical, but since Dr. Hodges had just mentioned Ms. Knox's comfort in talking about condoms, he cannot deny she was used to using them.

"This was deeply embedded, unforgiving rage. Her parents’ behavior had taught her: We don’t speak and acknowledge each other. We do not even give each other a passing glance. And we do not look each other in the eye and speak. It was passive-aggressive anger at its finest."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 919-921). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges made it sound as though the rage he speculated existing between Curt and Edda was embedded in Ms. Knox by their example. And actually, it was Dr. Hodges who had speculated that they exhibited this behavior simply because they were divorced. It never occurred to Dr. Hodges that Curt's and Edda's only common interests were Amanda and Deanna. The lack of communication between them didn't have to be from rage as much as indifference. Indifference rather than rage has more to do with her expectation that casual sex was more adult and mature than romantic sex.

"Their silence effectively trumped their supportive stances. But Amanda did learn to put a good face forward regarding all these underlying passions. It was an angel face, but it was also an angry, bitter, wounded face like the ones her parents modeled."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Location 933-935). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Even though Curt and Edda had houses close enough for their daughters to walk back and forth, Dr. Hodges imagined his fantasy that it was only a denial of anger which disguised itself in passive-aggressive ways. Dr. Hodges constructed this fantasy to claim it infected Amanda Knox, but he failed to mention that Deanna Knox was not affected.

"By their stone-walled silence, Amanda’s parents communicated a ton of emotions through projective identification. Deep down she would have felt it all unknowingly as it became an intrinsic part of her coping style. So Amanda frequently resorted to 'making others feel what she did unconsciously.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 941-943). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges made Ms. Knox's awkward social ignorance into a subconscious attack on others. Supposedly she dropped these emotional bombs as fallout from the rage she got from her parents. Did he get this idea from watching "Bones" on television?

It's interesting that Dr. Hodges claimed that Ms. Knox had accomplices in her April Fool's Day prank. Was he trying to establish a better connection to the prosecutor's claim she was an accomplice of Rudy Guede. It sounds like a thought print on him.

What court records did Dr. Hodges refer to in the noise citation? Misdemeanors don't require a court appearance. You just pay the fine. The policeman who responded to the disturbance of the peace call only noted the noise violation and rocks in the street. He didn't report the riotous orgy that some people claimed. What was the "criminal" behavior in a misdemeanor for a noise violation? That's what Dr. Hodges made of the event.

"The trip to Italy was certain to trigger the powerful abandonment and separation anxiety enmeshed in the family dynamic, the secret pain and rage that haunted her parents. Her parents, including her step-father, suggest that as she headed toward Perugia they had realized— somewhere in the back of their minds— that Amanda was a walking time-bomb."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1002-1004). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

What was Dr. Hodges talking about? Amanda's stepfather and the rest of her family were concerned about what could happen to Amanda because of her naive mentality. They were not concerned about what she might do to someone else. There was no secret pain and rage in her parents that made Amanda Knox into a walking time-bomb. It wasn't Ms. Knox's fault that the police and prosecutor saw her as an easy target for making names for themselves. They did get awards for this wrongful case against Ms. Knox and through her against Mr. Sollecito.

"On top of this Perugia was known for its raucous partying and free-wheeling drug use among foreign students. Had Amanda selected the school for reasons other than learning?"

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1018-1019). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Ms. Knox had focused on the narrow parameters of her desire to experience Italy while studying the Italian language. She was so concentrated on what she wanted that she didn't even find that there was the larger University of Perugia there also. It was unlikely that the travel brochures available from the schools or the equivalent of the chamber of commerce would publicize the availability of illegal drugs. So that was not likely to have been a factor in Ms. Knox's choice of schools.

I am a red-blooded American male although somewhat deteriorated by age, but I suspect there is a lot more to Amanda Knox than sex. I'm not too certain that Dr. Hodges can carry on a normal conversation about Ms. Knox without talking about sex. Did he think he could accuse Ms. Knox of murder because she is not innocent of sex?

Even in the first of three pictures Dr. Hodges presented to prove behavior messages, he claimed that the Peace Symbol Ms. Knox flashed was the image of a woman's spread legs. Did Dr. Hodges establish what Ms. Knox thought the Peace Sign meant or what it meant to Dr. Hodges?

As for "decoding paintings and sculptures," I remember the boredom of having to memorize the sex lives of Spanish writers. Did that influence their writing, or was their soap-opera writing favored by the public who already lived that way? I have to wonder what motivated Dr. Hodges along these lines.

Dr. Hodges clearly had an extreme interest in the symbols he saw in this innocuous picture with five guys at a beer party. I wonder what Dr. Hodges really saw in that "white top" that so much resembles a wedding dress. How did he get a "Playboy bunny" top out of that? Was it personal experience with Playboy bunnies that made him think of their playful ears when he saw Ms. Knox's Peace Symbol? From what I've read about them, Playboy bunnies were so chaste that they were not allowed to bend over to serve food and drinks. Nor were they allowed to date. Is this the body language that Dr. Hodges was talking about?

Dr. Hodges' reference to scissors is even more absurd, but it has to be remembered that to some men, a woman is already a sexual reference. It matters not what she does, it's somehow sexual to Dr. Hodges.

"All in all she conveys a mixture of unbridled primitive sexuality and aggression and a secret desperate need."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Location 1155). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.


Dr. Hodges titled the second photo of Ms. Knox that he had appropriated to prove his point, "Addicted to Love." He called it a self-portrait, but then admitted that Amanda's sister, Deanna took the picture. Dr. Hodges again revealed more about his sexual expectations with his interpretation of this picture than he did about Amanda Knox's inner thoughts. After all, it was Deanna who took the picture. So how could Amanda have even known that only part of her left leg would be showing? The Amanda Knox in this photo is an attractive woman, but I wouldn't say she was oozing seductiveness. It's Dr. Hodges who oozed with erotic definitions of what he saw in that picture. Also, I doubt that Ms. Knox would have the foggiest notion of what Dr. Hodges is talking about concerning the stoic dancers of the singer Robert Palmer. I'm probably older than Dr. Hodges and I don't know why those dancers mean anything either.

"Yet she has found a way out— her seductiveness enables her to shift roles. Instead of being choked, she will become the choker. She will deliver the controlling kiss, and then she’ll possess her victim for the moment, a victim who can’t be saved. It all comes down to whoever has the power of the kiss."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1259-1261). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Is Dr. Hodges even talking about Amanda Knox at all? His intimate knowledge of criminal behavior suggests that he was involved in more than analysis. He was construcing a hypothetical Amanda Knox with the rage he was prescribing for her. His decidedly darker turn in trying to pin Guede's crime on Amanda Knox didn't do anything to overcome the circular logic he used to analyze her guilt from her guilt.

In his "Annie get your gun" photo, Dr. Hodges completely outdid his previous obsession with sex. He came to the conclusion that Ms. Knox aimed the phalic symbol of a machine gun at her feminine symbol of her handbag and assumed she envisioned herself on the verge of being blasted into smithereens. Along the way, Dr. Hodges brought in a number of other images including the vampire he had previously employed.

"And she is furious about it— and deeply needs to retaliate. Dropping to her knees Amanda also suggests how suddenly she can get lowdown and deliver unexpectedly violent blows. Fatal blows delivered while wallowing on the floor."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1322-1323). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Of course Ms. Knox was laughing when this picture was taken. It really was a lark for her instead of the strangely dark image Dr. Hodges saw.

"Her super-intel chooses this key moment to speak symbolically in the language of “jest”— both in action (dropping to the floor and grabbing a gun) and word (“ Nazi”). To verify the message she ties unconscious body language to unconscious verbal language. In this way, she demonstrates how the deeper mind works."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1333-1335). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

All I see is how Dr. Hodges' mind works. It's his fantasy. It's his hypothetical Amanda Knox.

"In her book, Angel Face, author Barbie Nadeau writes, 'Consensual sex is not a crime. So Amanda’s promiscuity has little bearing on the murder itself.'[ 38] But if we read her promiscuity as symbolic of disguised anger, then that’s another matter altogether."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1452-1455). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Here, Dr. Hodges planted another suspicion that anger was the reason Ms. Knox may have killed Ms. Kercher. He had already demonstrated her expectation that casual sex was mature and adult. It was an illusion which Dr. Hodges probably didn't intend to disclose about Ms. Knox, but it's there anyhow. There was no rage required.

"...Amanda emphasized that she still suffered from childhood wounds and resulting feelings of inadequacy. Her audacious sexuality, ostensibly “adult” activity, covered up for a severely wounded inner child."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1466-1468). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

This is still Dr. Hodges' fantasy to set the stage for the rage of his hypothetical Amanda Knox. There is no evidence of the inner wounds Dr. Hodges created out of thin air.

"Right off Sophie sensed that Amanda was jealous of her. Pisco, the owner of the Merlin pub, was fond of Sophie, and Amanda was not used to sharing the spotlight. Amanda was about competition and power— clearly a cover for her pain."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 1495-1497). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

All that Ms. Knox had said to Sophie was that Sophie was popular with the guys. Sophie only guessed that Ms. Knox was talking about Pisco, and Sophie only thought there was a hint of jealousy in what Ms. Knox said. But Dr. Hodges jumped to the conclusion that Ms. Knox could not share attention and used her competitiveness and dubious power as a cover for the pain Dr. Hodges kept insisting she had.

Actually, Meredith didn't say what she may have had a quarrel with Amanda over. Ms. Knox's failure to comply with her duties on the clean-up calendar may indicate a lot of things such as forgetfulness or pressure from other things. Dr. Hodges may consider it disrespect, but he hadn't proved that much less disguised anger. It could very well be that Ms. Knox was easily distracted.

Ms. Knox hadn't made any promises of fidelity to Mr. Sollecito. That is probably the main bias against her. It was all right for men to flirt with lots of women, but Italians don't like it when women do the same thing.


If Ms. Knox were really guilty and wanted to blame someone else to direct attention away from herself, why wouldn't she have accused someone other than Patrick Lumumba who would more likely be accepted as the killer. She could have blamed Guede or some other drug dealer that guilters accuse her of getting her drugs from. That's not to say Ms. Knox got drugs from these drug dealers, but since Dr. Hodges would claim they are so prevalent, why would Ms. Knox have used the innocent Patrick Lumumba to blame instead of these other guys who could be believed to have killed Meredith?

Why were there no witnesses that could testify that Patrick Lumumba was dissatisfied with Ms. Knox's work and was planning to fire her to hire Ms. Kercher? What behavior suggested that she was secretly furious with Patrick over her supposed demotion and possible firing? Was it the accusations the police forced her to sign which she immediately called unreal and unreliable that Dr. Hodges is calling her suspicious behavior?

So Dr. Hodges thought Ms. Kercher snubbed Ms. Knox by going to a dinner without inviting Ms. Knox? How did Dr. Hodges expect Ms. Kercher to invite Ms. Knox to the dinner at the home of someone else? Why would Ms. Knox even want to be invited to dinner with Meredith's friends since they were so snobbish against her? Besides, it is possible that Ms. Kercher had seen Mr. Sollecito's interest in Ms. Knox and left early to give Mr. Sollecito a chance to meet Ms. Knox.

What reasons did Dr. Hodges give that the relationship between Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito was unhealthy? What did Dr. Hodges even mean by calling it "symbiotic?" Isn't marriage a symbiotic relationship? Did Dr. Hodges mean that the relationship was dysfunctional because they were having so much sex?

Mr. Sollecito had had a problem with cocaine sometime before, but there is no proof that he had gone back to using cocaine. The police took blood and hair follicle samples of both Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito as soon as they were arrested. The only results was a trace of marijuana. Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito were not on the cocaine rollercoaster Dr. Hodges imagined they were on. Dr. Hodges seemed a bit dizzy with all that imagining. Was he on the rollercoaster instead?

Dr. Hodges claimed that Ms. Knox had told her roommates that she was depressed for deceiving her boyfriend, D.J., by sleeping with Raffaele. He cited John Follain's book, but Mr. Follain did not write this. Ms. Knox had expressed concern over this issue when she had had sex with Mirko. Dr. Hodges went on to criticize Ms. Knox for betraying Raffaele by sleeping with Daniel (Bobby.) This is not true. She had already had her one night stand with Bobby before meeting Mr. Sollecito. What's really peculiar is how Dr. Hodges thought she could have had another night with Daniel when he also claimed she was having non-stop sex with Raffaele.

Of course Dr. Hodges ignored that Ms. Knox had made it clear to D.J. that she was not promising fidelity to him. And she had refused to marry Raffaele.

How was Ms. Kercher's leaving the concert during intermission a symbol of acute separation for Ms. Knox that she would not have noticed consciously? How was she to notice it at all when that very moment Mr. Sollecito came into her life day and night for a week? Dr. Hodges was still exaggerating the rift he manufactured between Ms. Knox and Ms. Kercher, but even if it were there, why would Ms. Knox even have had time to think about it consciously or subconsciously?

Ms. Knox had begun to see that her casual sex campaign was not as satisfying as she expected. She wrote about feeling something missing after her trysts with Mirko and Daniel (Bobby.) Her remark about Raffaele being the "tether" she needed was her first inclination toward a committed relationship. She didn't have time before being arrested to develop such a relationship with Mr. Sollecito.

Dr. Hodges indeed has a kinky mind to assert that Mr. Sollecito was a clear substitute for Ms. Kercher in Ms. Knox's mind. How did he come to that conclusion? Ms. Knox never said she was Lesbian or Bisexual. She just said that people at her high school thought she was Lesbian.

Dr. Hodges was mistaken. Ms. Knox's short story "Baby Brother" is not about Ms. Knox's sex being disguised rage. She was writing a realistic story about an older brother confronting his younger brother concerning a sexual encounter the younger brother didn't even allow the girl to have the opportunity of refusing. Did Dr. Hodges mistake the younger brother's equating sex with power and dominance with Ms. Knox's attitude toward sex? Dr. Hodges was maliciously planting the seeds for speculating that Ms. Knox would use that hypothetical attitude against Ms. Kercher.

Dr. Hodges himself commented that Ms. Knox's mind allowed her to write on whatever subject she wanted to, but he assumed that it was repressed rage that directed her to write this story. What was Dr. Hodges saying about the instructor who assigned writing a dark story? What was Dr. Hodges saying about himself because of his assumptions?

 What was Ms. Knox confessing in the nickname chosen for her by her teammates? What did Dr. Hodges confess to in choosing an alternate vicious description for what the nickname could mean instead of the one Ms. Knox said? Did Dr. Hodges deny that soccer is a blood sport? How did he single Ms. Knox out from her teammates who are equally competitive? How did Dr. Hodges jump from gaining control of the soccer ball to stealing Meredith's rent money? If he was going to accuse Ms. Knox of killing Ms. Kercher, why not present something besides word games? Is the gaming of word all that Dr. Hodges has going for him?

All Dr. Hodges had done in Chapter 3 is set the stage with words that he thinks predestines Ms. Knox into murdering Ms. Kercher. He had gradually introduced the vocabulary he intended to use for creating the illusion that the hypothetical subconscious of his hypothetical Amanda Knox would confess to the crimes he will conceive of her doing. It's still all in his head alone.

As Hodges Did (04) - Castration of Raffaele

Chapter 4: Rafe and Rudy, her Blood Brothers
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

It's absurd is the way Dr. Hodges demonized Raffaele's perception of his father. By the time Guede killed Meredith Kercher, there was a fond bond between Raffaele and his father. Raffaele appears to have gotten over whatever problem Dr. Hodges prescribed he had with intimate relationships with women, but somehow, that just proved to Dr. Hodges that Mr. Sollecito was guilty of being Ms. Knox's stooge.

The fact remains that Dr. Hodges did not submit his book, "As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox" to any journal of psychiatry for peer review. He only published it to the general population making the board of public opinion his peer reviewers.

All Dr. Hodges was doing in chapter 4 was establishing his basis for claiming Ms. Knox had Mr. Sollecito under her power. Given how many times the guilters have claimed Mr. Sollecito has thrown Ms. Knox under the bus, there is little validity in what Dr. Hodges seemed to claim. Besides, Dr. Hodges only mentioned Mr. Sollecito's secret anger to prove Ms. Knox's secret confession. Dr. Hodges did use the opportunity to preview the image he intended to portray of the knife/sex/ridicule game he contended was the death of Ms. Kercher. He again foreshadowed the inclusion of Rudy Guede as the necessary accomplice to take the fall. It's still Dr. Hodges' fantasy completely.

As Hodges Did (05) - New Beginning

Chapter 5: The beginning
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

Ms. Knox used idioms such as "getting something off her chest" in a folksy communication which Dr. Hodges tore to pieces to recreate his pet theories about Ms. Knox's guilt in Guede's crimes against Meredith Kercher.

It's quite reasonable for Ms. Knox to anticipate all of her friends and family asking questions about the murder that hit in the room next to hers. Why would there be any suspicion about whatever communication Ms. Knox would send to these people to calm their concern?

But Dr. Hodges inferred special significance to Ms. Knox's email because she was a suspect. Wasn't Dr. Hodges supposedly writing his book to prove her guilt instead of assuming it?'

Dr. Hodges accepted the statements the police forced Ms. Knox to sign as absolute truth. Since Dr. Hodges had just acknowledged that Ms. Knox was a suspect, where was her lawyer to advise her and witness these statements that Ms. Knox had no influence in how they were worded before she was forced to sign them?

Since Ms. Knox claimed to have been confused from smoking pot, why were her recollections of what happened the night Ms. Kercher died taken seriously? Why did the police ignore her handwritten statement from around noon the same day she accused Patrick Lumumba in which she claimed her memory was questionable and doubts wheterh Patrick really did kill Ms. Kercher? Why do guilters concentrate on the contradictions in the statements Ms. Knox signed instead of the confusion that was demonstrated in her mental state precluding her from understanding what the police had forced her to sign?

But Dr. Hodges would rather talk about the amazing subconscious information forthcoming from the words Ms. Knox used to express herself. Of course Dr. Hodges assumed that Ms. Knox was guilty and her subconscious was confessing between the lines. Of course he found tangent points between the words she used to connect to the confessions he wanted to put into her mouth. It just took mental gymnastics to uncover his special truth.

“'Anything might be a clue for the investigators,' he said. 'Don’t hold back— even if it seems trivial. The smallest detail is important. You never know what the key will be to finding the person who did this.'”[

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2246-2248). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.


Ms. Knox was actually quoting an investigator talking to her in the questioning on November 2nd. That fact didn't stop Dr. Hodges from finding all sorts of confessions he claimed Ms. Knox made with that other person's words.

Somehow, these words of the investigator were Ms. Knox informing him she was speaking to him "in code." Since she had previously asked for an interpreter, Dr. Hodges decided that Ms. Knox was saying through the words of the investigator that he had to interpret her code in his words. She was further expressing through the investigator's words that he must "know what the key will be." Of course to Dr. Hodges, the investigator telling Ms. Knox that "anything might be a clue"--"even if it seems trivial" was Ms. Knox saying that messages would appear trivial at first to his conscious mind. Then Dr. Hodges paid himself off by stating the investigators words "know the key...to finding the person who did this" is a hint that Ms. Knox is one of the killers.

We do know that the police already decided she was the killer. We don't need to read code Ms. Knox somehow enbedded in words an investigator said to understand that. This example does give a clear understanding of the circular reasoning Dr. Hodges used in his "thought print" analysis. He just made it up as he went along.

To doubly emphasize his point, Dr. Hodges jumped to the Author's Note after the end or Ms. Knox's book to quote a particle of what was there:

"She tells us, 'so much has been said of the case and of me, in so many different languages' but now she was 'about setting the record straight.'” Set it straight indeed.

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2290-2291). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

What Ms. Knox actually wrote was:

"So much has been said of the case and of me, in so many languages, in so many books, articles, talk shows, news reports, documentaries, and even a TV movie. Most of the information came from people who don’t know me, or who have no knowledge of the facts."

Knox, Amanda. Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir (p. 457). HarperCollins. Kindle Edition.

Ms. Knox did go on to say:

"This memoir is about setting the record straight."

Knox, Amanda. Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir (p. 457). HarperCollins. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges was certainly not setting anything straight. He took a few words out of context and gave them his own meaning.

"Pay attention to her big idea— a different language. She headed straight to her unconscious and its special symbolic language. There she delivered on her promise. Two languages— her literal cover-up conscious story and the true story in her unconscious figurative language."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2291-2294). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

All Dr. Hodges did was to prove Ms. Knox was lying by declaring he said so.

"A 'tell-all' memoir— with its rambling autobiographical narratives and countless self-serving self-serving denials— is the perfect place to seek clues from the suspect’s unconscious."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2299-2300). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Here, Dr. Hodges again made the assumption that Ms. Knox is guilty. His reasoning is that denials are self-serving. So how would Dr. Hodges distinguish between the self-serving denials of a guilty person and the self-less denials of an innocent person? If Dr. Hodges admits that all denials are self-serving whether a person is guilty or innocent, what had he proved except his bias?

"The super intelligence is vastly brighter than the surface mind. In fact, there’s really no comparison. It speaks as 'the other 90 percent' of the mind versus the conscious '10 percent.' Deep down it knows everything and must tell the truth which Amanda will do in her November 4, 2007 email."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2304-2306). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

I don't doubt that Ms. Knox's subconscious mind influenced what her conscious mind said. But what did Dr. Hodges mean by the "super intelligence" (or "super-intel" as he abbreviated it?) He seemed to be talking about the subconscious or unconscious mind. He may be confusing the subconscious or unconscious mind with just memory. Brain surgeons can stimulate a memory in the brain with an electrode, but that is not the subconscious or unconscious mind. Even that memory is limited by how the person perceived the world around him or her.

So what studies did Dr. Hodges find that supports theory that the subconscious mind is more "intelligent" than the conscious mind? What study proved that the conscious mind is unconscious of what the subconscious mind is doing? Aren't emotions the product of the subconscious mind? Aren't depression and elation from beyond the conscious mind? Isn't dissociative identity disorder (multiple personalities) a problem of the subconscious?

And where did Dr. Hodges get the idea that the subconscious mind is compelled to confess? How can he document that the subconscious mind has no self-interests? The brain can be sedated with barbiturates, but that just opens the floodgates to incomprehensible talk. The subconscious can be reprogrammed into new associations. That's called brainwashing. The conscious mind can be confused into agreements that violate the will of the subconscious which is what the police did to Ms. Knox when they forced her to sign statements of confession and accusations. That's why Ms. Knox immediately wrote her First Memorandum calling attention to the unreal and unreliable things in those forced statements. Her subconscious was objecting to the falseness she had been forced to believe consciously.

Also, Dr. Hodges only talked about Ms. Knox's "super-intel" being compelled to confess guilt. How would he determine the difference between what she would be confessing being guilty from what she would be confessing being innocent? Wouldn't he be using her same words either way?

"As we will see, Amanda makes clear that her email is indeed a forensic document. In that light I would add to the forensic wisdom...."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2344-2345). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Ms. Knox's email was just communication from her to her friends and family. She had no idea that it would be used as evidence against her. Dr. Hodges could have made anything into a "forensic document" that he chose to examine. It didn't take Ms. Knox's subconscious to identify it as such.

"As her super-intel begins explaining its hidden messages to the police in Amanda’s email, it underscores primary guidelines advising how to listen. It points out how it uses “message markers” to signal an important message-to-come, a crucial detail."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2350-2351). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition. 

The "tells" or "message markers" that Dr. Hodges said would introduce Ms. Knox's unconscious confessions can be anything he says they are. Even "I didn't do this," is a marker. Of course other guilters claim that her going into detail instead of saying "I didn't do this" is evidence Ms. Knox was lying. Guilters have their bets covered coming and going.

"Each reality triggers a set of unconscious thoughtprints, hidden messages. This means the same words can have different meanings depending on the trigger."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2369-2370). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

This is how Dr. Hodges can made the same word mean different things depending on how he wanted to fit accusations together. He just created his own separate context.

"'A central problem with the case has been the missing motive.'
------
Clearly Amanda’s super-intel, using a classic denial, will inform the police, 'I’m the one who knows the most out of everyone' involved in the case. If you hear her messages, the case will open up like a clam exposed to heat."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 2388, 2393-2394). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges expected Ms. Knox's subconscious to confess to her motive for Guede's crimes against Ms. Kercher as well as confessing her involvement in what Guede did. Dr. Hodges expected us to listen to Ms. Knox's messages, but all we hear are his words about her words.

As Hodges Did (06) - His Own Context

Chapter 6: The Email Begins: Amanda's Undercover News
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

Even before chapter 6, Dr. Hodges made up his own context for Amanda Knox's words as he went along. The clear context of the everyone Ms. Knox referred to in the beginning of her email has to be those people she emailed. We don't have that list, but in the body of her email, she did say "To: My close friends." That did not include the public, journalists, police officers, or prosecutors as Dr. Hodges wanted readers to accept.

Dr. Hodges referred to the first instance of the word "email" in the body of the email as a replication of that word. The word "email" may have occurred in the heading of the email, but she would not have seen that heading while writing the email. This assertion of the duplicity of this word is his attempt to create his own context to claim an unconscious confession was coming next.

When she claimed that the information she was putting in the email should not be given to journalists or the newspapers, Dr. Hodges of course decided she really meant the opposite.

What Dr. Hodges did next was jump to the end of the email to take up something Filomena and Laura said.

" First things first though, my roommates both
work for lawyers, and they are going to try to send a request through on monday to retrieve important documents of ours that are still in
the house."

Dr. Hodges decided this action through their lawyers by Filomena and Laura meant Ms. Knox was pointing investigators to the email she was sending as a piece of forensic evidence. He claimed that this message is high-lighted by the use of the words "spoke," "discussing," and "talked" elsewhere in the paragraph. If these "tells" tell anything, it's only in the context of the sentences in which they were used.

Where Ms. Knox said that Filomena and Laura said they were "going to try to send a request through," Dr. Hodges decided that it was Ms. Knox's unconscous saying "that investigators don't understand that she's talking to them in a disguised symbolic language." Again, Dr. Hodges referred to his mystical message marker "talking" as though this was an obvious give-away. And he expected the word "retrieve" which in its proper context related to the important papers that Filomena, Laura, and Amanda would need to get out of the cottage apartment to refer instead to incriminating evidence Dr. Hodges detailed that Ms. Knox's subconscious mind wanted to designate to the police in that very email.

Dr. Hodges incorrectly quoted Ms. Knox saying, "I work for lawyers." She said that Filomena and Laura worked for lawyers. Again it was Filomena and Laura that Ms. Knox said requested permission to retrieve documents belonging to all of them. Ms. Knox was only referring to her important papers being among those documents. So there is no reason for Dr. Hodges to assume that Ms. Knox's unconscious was confessing to anything about the email as being "scientific, court-admissible evidence."

The phrase "I have to get this off my chest because it's pressing down on me" only referred to Ms. Knox's expectation that all of her friends and family expected her to explain what was happening to her. It had nothing to do with Dr. Hodges' unwarranted expectation that Ms. Knox's subconscious would confess to Guede's crimes against Ms. Kercher. However much Dr. Hodges expectetd Ms. Knox to have guilt her subconscious would have to confess to, it's only his words against hers. Ms. Knox did not say there was any pressure on her chest. His words saying there was pressure on her chest had nothing to do with his words suggesting that Maredith Kercher would no longer breath.

Dr. Hodges demonstrated his use of denials as an "unconscious marker" when he claimed her not wanting to repeat herself in telling her friends and family what was happening was in reality her subconscious mind's intention to do precisely that. He fit that misconstrued idea with another he already fabricated out of innuendos that she was suffocating under the pressure of her guilt.

So because Dr. Hodges already believed her guilty, when Ms. Knox said she wasn't at home (at the cottage apartment) the night of the murder, he knows she was really saying she was.

When Ms. Knox mentioned all the answering questions she'd "been having to do at the police station," Dr. Hodges took that to mean her subconscious was still talking in code to the police and that her subconscious considered itself to be the police. He referred back to his "prison of the mind" concept for which he never proved any connection to Ms. Knox to begin with.

In Ms. Knox's phrase about not being able to say things to journalists or newspapers, Dr. Hodges again brought up his "denial marker" in declaring she really wanted to tell journalists or newspapers. He also claimed she was really claiming to be the reporter.

"...it helps to know that someone besides me knows something, and that im not the one who knows the most out of everyone" to Dr. Hodges meant she knew the most, but then he decided that her saying also meant that Raffaele Sollecito knew what happened. It was just Dr. Hodges' fantasy.

As Hodges Did (07) - Kinky Imagination

Chapter 7: A Bloodcurdling Confession
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

"while we were waiting, two ununiformed police
investigaters came to our house. i showed them what i could and told them what i knew. gave them ohone numbers and explained a bit in broken italian, and then filomena arrived with her boyfriend marco-f and two other friends of hers. all together we checked the houe out, talked to the polie,a nd in a big they all opened merediths door."

In spite of Ms. Knox misspelling "investigator" as "investigater," Dr. Hodges ran off with one of his free associations saying that Ms. Knox was referring to herself as a preditor claiming she confessed to being one of three gators who consumed Meredith. Then using her actual spelling, he suggested she was planning to take us through the gate of the cottage to the secret story of Meredith's murder. It's all unproved tangents on one word.

Dr. Hodges made a big deal over Ms. Knox's misspelling of the word "phone." "o" is right next to "p" on the keyboard. It's a common enough error for many people to make, but Dr. Hodges wanted to have her saying "oh one" as if she were saying "oh, I'm the one." And of course he can call the word "phone" a message marker to emphasize that he had found a subconscious message she had confessed. "ohone" happened to be convenient, but if she hadn't mentioned that word, he could have found some other type of marker to claim she expressed.

Dr. Hodges also used "ohone" to have Ms. Knox express that her subconscious hones in on her guilt and that she was home that night. He concentrated on the "oh" part to suggest she knew she was a big zero since "home" was where all of this supposedly rage started.

It's more unproved speculations based on tangents from one word, but Dr. Hodges' speculation over the "ohone numbers" being plural is quite out of context. Ms. Knox did give the postal police Meredith's phone numbers in the plural because Meredith was using two of them.

Dr. Hodges used another convenient word from Ms. Knox's reference to her "broken Italian" to portray Ms. Knox's coded message as "break the code." It sounds more like the punch line of a meaningless joke.

"Ununiformed" does seem like a strange way to say "out-of-uniform," but maybe there's an expression in Italian that sounds like that. It was still stranger for Dr. Hodges to think Ms. Knox was telling the police to quit their normal way of doing things.

In my version of Dr. Hodges book, he mistakenly used the name "Amanda" for referring to Filomena when he said she arrived with her boyfriend Marco-f(ilomena) as distinguished from the other Marco of the guys downstairs. Anyhow, his free association went from Marco-f to Marco Polo to blind man's bluff to a sex game with Meredith in place of "Marco" as the "It," and the -f which originally meant Filomena then being the "f-word." Dr. Hodges certainly has a kinky imagination. Or was this another of his meaningless jokes?

Dr. Hodges had pointedly claimed that there were three assailants several times already. He claimed that when Ms. Knox said that Filomena came with her boyfriend Marco-f and two of Filomena's friends, Ms. Knox's unconscious mind was confessing that meant there were the three who were Raffaele, Rudy, and herself. Of course if one of Filomena's other two friends had not come, Dr. Hodges could have counted Filomena into that significant number three. If only Filomena and Marco-f had come, Dr. Hodges would have had to count Ms. Knox into the number as well. That's the advantage of free association. Words meant what he wanted it to mean. Dr. Hodges even took Filomena's name to mean Meredith's "fill of men" that night. I wonder what Filomena thinks about that? Her name actually means "beloved" which is similar to the "loving" meaning of Amanda's name. I have to wonder what Dr. Hodges was thinking of?

Dr. Hodges went on to describing the breaking down of Meredith Kercher's door with penetrating Meredith Kercher sexually. Of course this contradicts guilter opinion that Ms. Knox tried to delay breaking down the door.

There is a great deal more missing from Dr. Hodges explanations of what Ms. Knox's unconscious mind was supposedly confessing than the omitted word of what the big something was when Filomena had Meredith's door broken in. If Ms. Knox's subconscious really did "check out" at that point, what was it confessing to? But whatever Dr. Hodges wanted the reader to believe, the big whatever was not something in Meredith's room since whoever broke in the door already had it while opening Mereidth's door. It was most likely a simple ellipse in Ms. Knox's typing. She just didn't notice that the word wasn't there. It happens when someone types faster than they can form their thoughts, and also when that someone is too tired to notice the mistake.

The word "rush" sounds more like what Ms. Knox was trying to say about the opening of Meredith's door. Of course Dr. Hodges had a vested interest in the words "in a big thrusting stab" that he suggested. He is after all constructing the secret confession of Amanda Knox. Also, Dr. Hodges' bias in suggesting the missing word is a "blank-out" said volumes about him instead of Ms. Knox. If Ms. Knox really had consciously "blanked out" the incriminating word(s,) she would have also known to reword the phrase as well. The word is just missing. It was not "blanked out" as Dr. Hodges wanted the reader to accept.

Ms. Knox made lots of typing errors in her email. How did any one of them constitute anything but her lack of attention? She was probably too tired on November 4th to notice the mistakes she had made, but Dr. Hodges insisted that the typed letters "polie" meant her confession she was lying to police. Now how did he get that out of "po-lie?" Dr. Hodges had to admit she was trying to type "police" when she typed "polie." Wouldn't the simplist explanation be that she didn't notice she left out the "c?" To Dr. Hodges it had to mean her confession she lied to police. Did it ever occur to Dr. Hodges that "polie" could stand for "police lie" instead of "Amanda lie?"

As I have already said, Ms. Knox was not a good typist which is probably why the police didn't have her type her own forced confession. Why did it have significance to Dr. Hodges that Ms. Knox mistyped the word "standing?" "Stadning" is a reasonable straight-forward and honest mistake for a novice typist to make. All the tangents Dr. Hodges drew from that one word are of his own imagination only. But he was not satisfied with telling us this much about himself. Dr. Hodges had to draw the comparison between the non-words "stadning" and "stabning." It's to do with "d" and "b" looking like small swords. It's ridiculous, but he put it in his book.

Just how did Dr. Hodges decide that "kitchen" was code for Meredith's bedroom? He claimed that Ms. Knox AGAIN established that kitchen meant Meredith's bedroom, but this is the first time he had mentioned it.

Dr. Hodges interpreted "having really done my part for the situation" as Ms. Knox's unconscious confession of her part in the murder. The situation Ms. Knox was talking about was alerting Filomena and the police to the peculiar things Ms. Knox had discovered in the cottage. Filomena had taken control ordering the breaking down of Meredith's door. Ms. Knox didn't have Filomena's authority to do that.

“but when they opened merediths door and i heard
filomena scream "a foot! a foot!" in italian i immedaitely tried to get to merediths room but raffael grabbed me and took me out of the
house.”

Dr. Hodges again used his "message markers" to structure Ms. Knox's words to his liking. It's not obvious at all why "open door," "scream," and "'a foot a foot' in Italian" should all be markers, but he insisted on it.

Why did Dr. Hodges claim that Ms. Knox suggested we read "me" as Meredith's nickname "Mez?" He wanted us to accept that Ms. Knox "opened" her with a stab of a knife. Ms. Knox said nothing of the sort. It was Filomena who screamed. How did Dr. Hodges get that Ms. Knox was saying Ms. Kercher had screamed? Because he wanted to accuse her of saying that. The scream the neighbors claim to have heard was the cat the police said was severely injured before somehow getting into the downstairs apartment before just as mysteriously disappearing again. What difference did it make that neighbors thought they heard something at 11:30 PM when most likely Ms. Kercher died between 9:30 PM and 10:30 PM according to Guede or the medical examiner.

Dr. Hodges claimed that Ms. Knox's misspelling of the word "immediately" drew attention to it. Never mind that he didn't care which way Ms. Knox spelled the word "investigator." Anyhow, he reinforced his label of Ms. Knox as a predator by claiming she meant she "ate" Meredith. How would Ms. Knox's subconscious even dream this up in a nightmare? This is only Dr. Hodges' conscious fantasy.

To Dr. Hodges, Ms. Knox saying that Raffaele grabbed her and took her out of the house is her admitting they each grabbed Ms. Kercher from different angles of assault. He tried to validate this claim asserting that evidence proved that hands the size of hers had strangled Meredith. But Ms. Kercher was not strangled. She was stabbed in the neck causeing blood that suffocated her. The size of bruises on her neck cannot prove the size of the hand that caused them.

And Dr. Hodges without any validity claimed that Ms. Knox's reference to the house she was taken out of by Raffaele was her unconscious mind's hint at the motive of being taken out of her own home and abandoned that Dr. Hodges tried to build earlier in his book. That's still his own fantasy of a subconscious rage he never proved.

"then i sat around in this waiting room wthout having the chance to leave or eat anything besides vending maschine food (whcih gave me a hell of a stomache ache) until 530 in the morning. during
this time i received calls from a lot of different people, family mostly of course, and i also talked with the rest. especially to find out what exactly was in merediths room whent hey opened it.apparently her body was laying under a sheet, and with her foot sticking out and there was a lot of blood. whoever had did this had slit her throat. they told me to be back in at 11am. i went home to raffael's place and ate something substantial, and passed out."

In this portion of her email, Ms. Knox talked about people she talked to while waiting in the police station to be questioned. After mentioning people who talked to her by phone, she said she talked to the rest. There is no reason to believe these other people were not the people in the waiting room with her, and indeed, there was testimony from others there about what she said. Dr. Hodges only had the elliptical reference "the rest" to use to make his absurd illusion that Ms. Knox's supposedly guilty subconscious mind was referring specifically to Raffaele and Guede or that it was speaking for all the alleged killers.

Again, Dr. Hodges made his ridiculous assertion that opening Meredith's door was opening Meredith up. Ms. Knox was merely asking the rest of the people who saw into the room what they saw. Of course Dr. Hodges considered Ms. Knox's telling people in her email what she heard about the murder was Ms. Knox's confessing to doing it. He gave no reason but his say-so that she must confess the guilt his logic is supposed to be proving.

The testimony of Meredith's British friends did not agree on how Ms. Knox exclaimed that Ms. Kercher bled to death. What's more interesting is that Ms. Knox was incorrect about that. Ms. Kercher smothered on her own blood before she bled to death. So Ms. Knox did not have insider information. But Ms. Knox was still upset by what the killer had done to Meredith, and Dr. Hodges took this anger as being Ms. Knox's confession that she was the killer.

Ms. Knox related that the police told them to leave the house, and for no reason he gave, Dr. Hodges decided this was a throwback to Ms. Knox's childhood trauma. Then he dissected the word "informaton" that Ms. Knox had misspelled and decided she was referring to "roommate" and that she was revealing a "ton" of information about the crime. Where Ms. Knox said the police "asked the same questions over and over," Dr. Hodges decided Ms. Knox was telling the police they already had her confession.

Dr. Hodges again used a typing error in the word  to call her bag a badge for her subconscious acting as an officer investigating the crime and to claim she was really confessing she was bad.

Talking about her passport was supposed to be referring to the symbolic language of her subconscious as being a foreign language.

Her referrence to her wallet is supposedly a "trigger motive" indicating her confession to stealing Ms. Kercher's rent money which Dr. Hodges supposedly confirmed by referring back to Ms. Knox's typo "badg" saying she had bad money in her wallet. That rent money was never recovered. Guede probably spent it all.

Supposedly Ms. Knox needing an interpretter was her subconscious asking for an expert in decoding what it was confessing to.

Dr. Hodged then talked about "message markers."

Answering questions for six hours straight was supposed to indicate the pressure her subconscious was under to confess.

The details the interpreter helped her understand supposedly marked the close attention that needed to be given to her words.

The police taking her fingerprints was supposed to be an "identification marker" in her "thought print." Supposedly Ms. Knox's unique "thought print" could be matched to the unique symbolic messages of the crime.

It's true that psychologists can compile a profile of the likely suspect from evidence left at a crime scene, but that is a very general description of the perpetrator. Profiling is only possible because there is enough common traits among groups of criminals to establish the profile of each group. The modus operandi of a single culprit is only possible if that perpetrator has a prior history to be examined. Guede had a history of being arrested for breaking and entering. His confirmed modus operandi may fit a larger profile, but it can also be recognized as his own criminal characteristic. It doesn't matter that none of his arrests resulted in a trial. The events that precipitated his arrest still form his pattern of behavior. None of this has anything to do with the "thought prints" Dr. Hodges alleged he could discern.

Ms. Knox's assumption that the police were primarily interested in questioning her was because she was closer to Ms. Kercher than the other two flatmates precipitated Dr. Hodges into declaring this was another subconscious confession. He linked back to his imagined rage over familial separation which he considered triggered by the alleged conflict at home. Dr. Hodges considered the brutality of Meredith's murder to indicate a crime of passion that could be triggered by rage at separation and abandonment. It's strange he made this up about Ms. Knox when there was so much more to explore about this concerning Rudy Guede.

The evidence indicating conflict between Ms. Knox and Ms. Kercher was clearly exaggerated. Ms. Kercher once made a remark about a quarrel that she didn't think important enough to elaborate on. There was the question of the dirty toilet, but how this intensified into a murderous rage is unknown.

In her book, Ms. Knox talked about the misunderstandings over hygeine and housekeeping. There is no reason to believe Ms. Knox is lying about not remembering the quarrel Ms. Kercher mentioned but gave no details to. How can Ms. Knox know what it was all about when she has no details to identify it?

There was nothing Ms. Knox competed with Ms. Kercher over. Ms. Knox never promised fidelity to any of her boyfriends from Raffaele on back. She didn't bring strange men to the cottage. Laura said they were her friends. It's just Dr. Hodges imagination that she confessed to stealing Ms. Kercher's rent money. There is no evidence that Patrick told anyone he thought about hiring Meredith in Amanda's place before Meredith's death.

Ms. Knox didn't say she was the last person to see Ms. Kercher alive. She said that one of Meredith's friends was the last person to see her alive. Yet, Dr. Hodges took that statement as a "thought print" that Ms. Knox was admitting to being the one who saw Ms. Kercher alive last.

Dr. Hodges decided that Ms. Knox's mentioning that the police took her fingerprints was a "thoughtprint confession" marking what she was about to say as important. Supposedly, using the word "fingerprints" in the same sentence as the word "murder" was a "thoughtprint" confessing her fingerprints were on the murder. Dr. Hodges gave no reason for this except proximity in the email. Probably his reason was to present a visual image of her involvement. The image is just a charicature emphasizing features he made up.

Dr. Hodges really did go overboard claiming that Ms. Knox's mentioning Meredith's friend who was the last one to see her alive the night of the murder meant that a friend was the one who killed her. That is his advantage of using free associative analysis.

Dr. Hodges of course had already decided that Ms. Knox had a memory of being the last person to see Ms. Kercher alive just before Dr. Hodges decided Ms. Knox killed her. When is Dr. Hodge going to explain how his "thoughtprints" prove Ms. Knox guilty? So far all he had done is to detail how the guilt he had already decided on had to have manifested itself in words he took out of their reasonable context.

Dr. Hodges took the misspelled "lat one,"declared it "late one" which he decided suggested "that one" because the word "that" was used later in the sentence, and added the correct spelling for "last one." After this exercise in futility, he compared "lat" with "late" and changed the whole thing to "ate one." With this complete nonsense, Dr. Hodges  claimed Ms. Knox called the killer (presumably herself) the one who ate Meredith or the vampire killer. Maybe Dr. Hodges was making an allusion to Meredith's vampire costume for Halloween, but he would come back to his idea of Ms. Knox being a vampire later. This nonsense is just the cronolistic marker to his own thoughtprint.

Dr. Hodges went on to identify the two girls who were friends of Meredith and who were also getting their fingerprints taken as being Ms. Knox's confession that the two girl-like guys who murdered Meredith with her were also vampires.

As Hodges Did (08) - Speaking for Amanda Knox

Chapter 8, Secretly Speaking for Her Victim
As Done Unto you: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

"We understand one basic fact. We are listening to a literary genius, her super-intel, when it comes to her images, metaphors, stories-within-a-story, and memorable denials."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 3259-3260). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Who is Dr. Hodges really describing? It's his fiction we are reading. He only used a word or two of Ms. Knox's to catapult himself into his own special fantasy world where a person's subconscious can be expected to confess to whatever crimes Dr. Hodges decided that person committed. All his "thoughtprints" have proved yet is that Dr. Hodges already "knew" that Ms. Knox was guilty.

Dr. Hodges had already established that his hypothetical Amanda Knox would affirm her guilt by denying it. He had already presented this hypothetical Amanda Knox as the undercover journalist reporting on her own guilt. He had already defined clues he called markers that can be anything he chose to call attention to in order to emphasize secret meaning he claimed he found in Ms. Knox's words. He had already declared that his hypothetical Amanda Knox's unconscious cannot avoid confessing the guilt Dr. Hodges had already decided Ms. Knox had.

It is not remarkable then that Dr. Hodges continued to find words of Ms. Knox that confess unconscious guilt.


"this is m account of how i found my roommate murdered the morning of friday, november 2nd.

The last time i saw meredith, 22, english, beautiful, funny, was when i came home from spending the night at a friends house."

Why did Dr. Hodges cut off the last sentence after only "The last time i saw meredith....?" He didn't want the reader to contemplate the emotional impact of the four things: 22, English, beautiful, funny which Ms. Knox said about Ms. Kercher. He didn't want anyone to understand that Ms. Knox could have a friend.

When Ms. Knox said the police investigators took all of their information, she wasn't saying she had all the information. Dr. Hodges did not speak for Ms. Knox.

When she asked those people she was sending the email to not to divulge what she was telling them, she wasn't expressing a secret desire to blab it to everyone. Dr. Hodges did not speak for Ms. Knox.

Ms. Knox is heavily criticized for lacking social skills, but Dr. Hodges attributed her straight forward approach to this email as being the heavy guilt weighing down on her. He thought it more appropriate for her to say "how I found my roommate's body," but she was not the one who found the body. She only called attention to pecularities that led to find the body. However, Meredith Kercher was Ms. Knox's roommate, and Ms. Knox was dealing with finding her roommate murdered. The word "murdered" is the past participle of the verb "to murder." It does not imply a continuing action such as the present particle does. Ms. Knox was not confronting an action in progress. There are no hidden messages in her coping with the reality that her roommate was dead.

Dr. Hodges manipulated Ms. Knox's words to make "I found my roommate murdered" into "I murdered my roommate." It's only a word game to him. He took Ms. Knox's reference to one of Meredith's friends, "the lat one who saw her alive that night she was murdered" and left out words making it into "lat one who saw her alive murdered [her]." Even then he had to add a second "her."

But then he revealed the real reason he butchered the quote ending it with "The last time i saw Meredith...." He remade the whole thing into "...my account of how i murdered my roommate the last time i saw Meredith..."

Not satisfied with his free associative analysis of Ms. Knox's words, Dr. Hodges decided that her typo "m" for "my" really stood for Meredith pretending that Ms. Knox was speaking for Meredith in explaining the murder. This speaking for the dead is supposedly compelled by the subconscious in confessing guilt, but Dr. Hodges never proved guilt before assuming it in order to apply his thoughtprint analysis of Ms. Knox's subconscious confessing the guilt Dr. Hodges already assumed into being.

"Notice how early her slip 'm account' comes in the email. Imagine what investigators could learn after they realize just how strongly a perpetrator is compelled to speak for their victim."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 3344-3346). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

This sales job comes in chapter eight and Dr. Hodges started talking about the email in chapter five, but he bragged here about how early in the email his alleged reading of Ms. Knox's speaking for Meredith came. The reasonable reading of this typo is "my." There was no way it could have been Meredith's account since she was already dead when Ms. Knox got to the cottage.

"The last time i saw meredith, 22, english, beautiful, funny, was when i came home from spending the night at a friends house. It was the day after halloween, thursday. I got home and she was still asleep, bu after i had taken a shower and was fumbling around the kitchen she emerged from her room with the blood of her costume (vampire) still dripping down her chin."

Dr. Hodges speculated saga continued. There was no reason for Ms. Knox to be aggrevated with Ms. Kercher for being asleep still. Ms. Knox may have liked taking showers with Mr. Sollecito, but there was no reason to think she wanted to share a shower with Ms. Kercher. Ms. Kercher did wake up while Ms. Knox was home. Dr. Hodges was reading things between the lines that were not there.

Dr. Hodges pulled another of his "markers" out of his magician's hat. He thought that using the word "home" a couple of times and the word "house" once indicated some crime of passion. Why should the phrase "when I came home" mean Ms. Knox came home mad that day? Didn't she just describe Meredith as "22, english, beautiful, funny?" That expression doesn't sound full of rage. Did Dr. Hodges think that Guede was not capable of the outRAGEous passion needed to commit his crimes against Meredith Kercher? Did Dr. Hodges ignore the isolation and abandonment that Guede experienced from both his natural family and his adoptive family? Since Rudy Guede experienced the same experience Dr. Hodges prescribed Ms. Knox had endured, why was it Ms. Knox instead who would act out the rage Dr. Hodges ordained she had?

All Hallowed's Eve is indeed the day of the dead. It was not associated with monsters at all. It was the day that Wiccans (Anglicized as witches) believed the other world that the dead go to was closest to the world of the living. Dr. Hodges of course wanted to introduce vampires again. He also repeated his unproved assertion of Ms. Knox's unconscious rage.

Ms. Knox did express her identification with Meredith's death in that she realized she could have been the one home alone instead of Ms. Kercher. That of course is not the speaking for the dead that Dr. Hodge was obsessed with.

Dr. Hodges was distorting Halloween to claim Ms. Knox had become the vampire she feared. Halloween is a time of hospitality since you could expect your dead relatives to be knocking on the door. Maybe there is the purpose in alleviating the fear of death since the dead would come back to tell you it isn't bad. It can also be seen as the young taking the place of those who have gone before them making it a renewal of life.

Dr. Hodges still exaggerated the effects that Ms. Knox or Mr. Sollecito would have felt for family problems whether during Halloween or any other time. He completely obliterated the clear meaning of Ms. Knox's words when she described the realization that there had been an intruder in the cottage when Ms. Kercher was supposed to have been there. Somehow saying Ms. Kercher's whereabouts had not been accounted for is to Dr. Hodges her confession that she killed Meredith and had not be held to account for it. This assertion is just another of Dr. Hodges' many tangents of nonsense based on one random word or phrase.

The other tangents of illogic have to do with his obsession with the Halloween rejection he alleged, the rejection he alleged from her childhood, and the uncontrollable rage he speculated into dubious existence. Dr. Hodges doesn't speak for Amanda Knox.

As Hodges Did (09) - Indigestion

Chapter 9: The Vampire Killers
As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox

"i came home from spending the night at a friends house. It was the day after halloween, thursday. I got home and she was still asleep, bu after i had taken a shower and was fumbling around the kitchen she emerged from her room with the blood of her costume (vampire) still dripping down her chin. We talked for a while in the kitchen, how the night went, what our plans were for the day."

Dr. Hodges made the absurd claim that Ms. Knox was confessing to Ms. Kercher being dead instead of asleep the morning of November 1st. He cut off the quote he used to make the fragment "bu after I...." This nonsense marker suggested to him "be you" which he then enlarged into "That would be you, Amanda, who put Meredith to sleep." All this because the "after I" part became "after I did it." Dr. Hodges came up with very creative nonsense.

He then decided that Ms. Knox's fumbling around in the kitchen was her using the kitchen knife to kill Meredith even though the kitchen knife was incompatible with the wounds to Ms. Kercher's neck and could not be proved to have had Ms. Kercher's DNA on it.

Ms. Kercher emerging from her room with the fake blood still dripping down her chin became Ms. Knox getting a blood shower when Ms. Knox was alleged to have stabbed her. The police didn't find the bloody clothes Dr. Hodges alleged Ms. Knox should have been wearing. And supposedly the word "emerged" was a message marker, but Dr. Hodges didn't explain why. His explanation would probably not help any. The "thoughtprints" he alleged for Ms. Knox sound more like his own ever evolving nightmares.

Somehow, Dr. Hodges used his inexplicable "message marker," "emerged," to equate Ms. Kerchers' bedroom with the kitchen. This was how he had her confess to the murder being in the bedroom instead of the shower.

Of course Ms. Kercher's vampire costume brought back Dr. Hodges' obsession with vampires. Somehow describing Ms. Kercher's costume made Ms. Knox the vampire. And the word "costume" sent Dr. Hodges on another cover-up tangent. It's all part of his eccentric logic. Guilters are proficient at finding their own meaning in anything Ms. Knox said.

"Amanda further suggests that she herself was consumed, violated severely by an emotional vampire from her past and continually haunted by the terror. Now she had the blood of a vampire and she focused her blood-lust on Meredith. Before long Amanda will tell us who the vampire was in her life."

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 3482-3484). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges merely used his word game to say Ms. Knox confessed to being a vampire. Then he asserted an emotional vampire in Ms. Knox's past. It's probably another word game just like the one he was playing about Ms. Knox focusing her blood-lust on Meredith.

Dr. Hodges used one of his "message markers" to change conversation between Amanda and Meredith into Ms. Knox confessing about Meredith. In that conversation that Dr. Hodges ignored, Ms. Knox and Ms. Kercher talked about their plans for the day, but Dr. Hodges can only see plans for three murderers.

Why would either Ms. Knox or Ms. Kercher be planning anything out of the ordinary since they certainly didn't know that one of them would be murdered by the next morning. If it had been Ms. Knox who had been at home alone and Guede had killed her instead, would Dr. Hodges have found hidden rage in Ms. Kercher for killing Amanda?

Of course that's nonsense, but so is taking the description of an ordinary morning and changing it into:

"Read Meredith suddenly 'went,' left, and quickly died in a shower of her own blood when Amanda began eating/ consuming her. Amanda thus confesses, 'I was the one who stabbed her and started the massive bleeding.'”

Hodges MD, Andrew G.. As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox (Kindle Locations 3511-3513). Village House Publishers. Kindle Edition.

Dr. Hodges was demonizing Ms. Knox and making her into the monster that furthered his science fiction. Ms. Knox described Ms. Kercher's fake blood dripping down her chin from her mouth, but Dr. Hodges had to move that down to below the chin to claim it was blood from Meredith's neck. Of course any self-respecting vampire would aim for a carotid artery.

Dr. Hodges truncated the sentence Ms. Knox had written about eating pasta when Meredith came out. So after Dr. Hodges manipulated her words plus changing the word order, he had her saying "we were eating meredith together...." Also, Dr. Hodges interpreted the pasta they were eating as the house code name for marijuana, but pasta really is a common food in Italy.

Dr. Hodges change Ms. Knox saying Mr. Sollecito "came right after" she started eating into her sexually aggressively coming right after the men she wanted. Mirko did kiss and tell about her supposedly aggressive sexuality, but his paid account in the media sounds more like a sophomoric fantasy.

Dr. Hodges claimed Ms. Knox's use of the word "house" in saying that Mr. Sollecito came from his house indicated she was still waiting for her father who left her mother. Supposedly this loss of affection that he never proved drove her to kill Meredith. Dr. Hodges seemed to think that if such a loss was prevalent in divorced families in general, it had to have occurred to Ms. Knox in particular. His use of the probability of a group profile just created the illusion of a certainty.

Ms. Knox was not using cannibalistic imagery. Dr. Hodges was in an attempt to demonize Ms. Knox as a monster. He projected another accusation disguised as her confession that she dressed up for Halloween in October 2013 all in black as a cat or cat burglar. He insinuated she had stolen Ms. Kercher's life. What Dr. Hodges wrote about Amanda Knox sounds like science fiction.

Ms. Knox was writing about her experiences. What was Dr. Hodges writing about? He is the only one who can know what it is. He just expected the reader to take his word on it.

Dr. Hodges' kinky sex allusions are as obsessive as those of a college freshman trying to seduce his girlfriend. No matter what the subject the obsessed Dr. Hodges like the freshman can steer any conversation back to sex within a minute or two.

So somehow, Ms. Knox describing Ms. Kercher putting clothes into the washer or taking them out to take back to her room reminded Dr. Hodges of sex. Even when I was a college freshman that never occurred to me.

And Ms. Knox's account of taking showers and washing laundry seemed to suggest to Dr. Hodges something about cleaning up that he thought the police would want to know. However there was no smear marks or cleanser residue found to prove such a clean-up.

A guitar can be a matrix symbol, but when it is held near the pelvic level, it is most certainly a phallic symbol. It is a bit strained for Dr. Hodges to take Ms. Knox's writing about playing the guitar to mean she confessed to digitally penetrated Meredith. It's just his kinky mind putting images into the reader's mind.

Dr. Hodges enlarged Ms. Knox's saying they went back to Mr. Sollecito's house to watch movies into something quite irrelevant. They didn't watch family movies. They watched the movie Amelle. it was not a horror movie. Regardless of all the irrelevant implications Dr. Hodges made, Ms. Knox was not saying Meredith's murder was reenacting her family movies.

Ms. Knox was not getting even with her father's new children for the bedrooms they got. It is purely coincidental that Guede killed Ms. Kercher in her bedroom. It is not coincidental that Dr. Hodges took the bedrooms as proof that it was Ms. Knox who killed Meredith. He started with that assumption in order to expect Ms. Knox's unconscious mind to be compelled to confess. Naturally, Dr. Hodges could find words of Ms. Knox on which to construct tangents proving his expectations.

Dr. Hodges decided that not leaving Mr. Sollecito's apartment was really saying they didn't leave the crime scene until Ms. Knox and Mr. Sollecito were sure the "coast was clear." Who would they worry about seeing on leaving the cottage? Not that Dr. Hodges didn't tell his story first, but it contradicted Guede's story that they left immediately.

Dr. Hodges was confusing in claiming that Ms. Knox writing that she woke up at 10:30 AM was her confession that Ms. Kercher was murdered at 10:35 PM. And was misleading in claiming the 10:35 PM was around the same time estimated by the pathologist, Dr. Lalli. Dr. Lalli did estimate the time of death to be 10:30 PM, but he set an hour margin of error before and after. Mignini latched onto the 11:30 PM limit claiming Nara Capezzali heard Meredith scream. Mrs. Capezzali saw no one. So she could have heard the wounded cat that police claimed bled in the guys apartment downstairs before it mysteriously disappeared as it had appeared.

The activity on Ms. Kercher's phone indicates Meredith died between 9:30 PM and 10:00 PM. She had not tried again to phone her family in England after not getting connection just before 9:00 PM, and someone who was probably not she tried to call her bank at 10:00 PM.

Even changing her clothes indicated Ms. Knox's guilt to Dr. Hodges. Supposedly, the word "change" is one of his major "message markers." Did Dr. Hodges expect innocent people to wear dirty clothes all the time? She wrote that she grabbed a change of clothes, and that made Dr. Hodges think she, Raffaele, and Guede had grabbed Meredith like a toy. He also decided it meant "chain-gang clothes" as though she were telling the police to arrest her.

Dr. Hodges revisited the story he embellished about Ms. Knox's father abandoning her. He again implied how this pain he had speculated for Ms. Knox would cause her to kill Ms. Kercher. Being the child of a divorced family does not predestine that child to become a murderer.

Dr. Hodges wanted the reader to see Ms. Knox as being in denial of the dysfunction of her family the way the character in the movie, "Amelie," may have been in denial. But Dr. Hodges ignored that whatever the difficulty looked like for Amelie or Ms. Knox, they had both maintained their prospectives and had prospered. Of course Amelie is a fictitious character, but so is the hypothetical Amanda Knox Dr. Hodges kept talking about.
