Picture a wolf with his tongue out as he pants, foam drips out of the sides of his hungry jaws.
This wolf paces quietly before his prey--a flock of sheep.
His heart races as he strategizes how to get the flock to pull just far enough away from the little lamb so he can make his move.
The wolf starts panting harder as he is unable to trick the fluffy white group--they keep the little lamb in the middle in order to protect her from the carnivore who is now licking his chops.
He circles the flock with shifty eyes--trying to trick them into believing he is a safe animal in the area just passing by--but he is a cunning narcistic trickster.
Suddenly he rushes the flock and runs after the vulnerable little lamb trying to get away--the lamb stops before a cliff and stands frozen as one wrong move and she will fall over, never to be seen again by the flock.
The sheep watch from a distance bleeting and baaing on behalf of the little lamb.
The truth comes out about the wolf; his hunger has nothing to do with food, but everything to do with power, fame, and glory.
He is hungry to win victory over the lamb, but will spend time just allowing her to shiver in fear--he intends not to kill her but make her fear him and bow down to him for the rest of her life.
Instead of gobbling up the little lamb he paces in front of her barking out false accusations, making up stories about her, and howling at the moon.
He is one of the heads of the wolf pack and he loves getting the glory and fame from a victory where all willl raise him up with more honor and respect than ever before as he captures the lamb and tortures her forever.
Hollywood could not have written a better court room drama than the case against Amanda Knox in Italy. There's love, sex, murder, lies, deceit, a vengeful attorney, an angry mob, and a little lamb.
The Kercher families' lawyer is Francesco Maresca and he is exhibiting out-of-control behavior in the courtroom and ready to pounce with all he's got on Amanda Knox.
A journalist has picked up on the angry courtroom verbatims of Maresca the he asked him if he was seeking vengeance over justice in his case against Amanda Knox. The lawyer glared at him and walked away.
With the cards stacked up against them due to DNA evidence and proof things were poorly executed in the investigation, the wolf, or rather the prosecution is wanting to go "all in."
They want to make sure Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito are not cleared of the conviction of murdering British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.
Since Knox and Sollecito are currently appealing their convictions, new evidence is starting to look shaky for the prosecutors, so much so, that it appears they are ready to fight even harder.
The prosecution is vying for a tougher punishment--they've doubled-down.
They are requesting the Italian appellate court sentence both Knox and Sollecito to the harshest punishment in Italy: life sentences in prison.
But the plot thickens, in 2008, Rudy Guede was already convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. Prosecutors say Guede, Knox, and Sollecito murdered and sexually tortured Kercher in November 2007.
Guede was sentenced to 30 years in prison, he appealed that and an appellate court cut his jail time almost in half, according to CBS News.
But afterward there was no news media hype or headline that read: "Perugia prosecutors seek life sentence for Guede." There was nothing.
The panting and foaming at the mouth was saved up for when Knox's and Sollecito's turn to appeal would be in court.
Not only is the prosecutor's office seeking harsher treatment, but also Kercher's attorney.
When the apellate judge hit his fist with force and authority on the stand to silence a Maresca outburst, which had interrupted the DNA expert's testimony, it was obvious the scrambling was taking place.
Will the little lamb go over the cliff or will the flock of sheep be able to protect the little lamb as the wolf backs up and falls to his death?
