This may be the first time that you have heard the word "guilter." This word was coined by a member of Injustice in Perugia during an online discussion regarding the case and it stuck. The word has gone on to be widely used for the past three years.
What exactly does guilter mean?
A guilter is someone that believes in the guilt of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito regardless of any evidence that is presented proving otherwise. A guilter will continue to believe that Amanda and Raffaele are guilty long after they are acquitted. Guilters are people that bought into all of the lies that were leaked to the press from the beginning of the trial to the present. Guilters continue to spread these lies long after they have been completely refuted.
Some guilters simply refuse to admit they made a mistake. For more than two years, guilters have been posting savage lies against Amanda Knox and her family.If they were to face the truth now, they would also have to face the fact that their behavior has been deeply unfair. Guilters will lie at all costs to hold on to their precious reputation.
Guilters have used this case as a way to socialize. They have become a group of friends that gather online to convince each other that Amanda and Raffaele are guilty no matter what the evidence, or in this case, lack of evidence indicates. They feed off of each others lies, assuring themselves that they have been right all along.
The guilters have organized a campaign online to spread lies and misinformation anywhere they can. Every article online is contaminated with their comments. YouTube videos quickly fall victim to the guilters. Support groups on facebook often fall prey to their vile comments. One of the most notorious guilters posts using the screen name Harry Rag. You will find his comments spread all over the internet like a cancer. Hiding behind a fictitious name, posting lies and misinformation, for the purpose of harming others is the behavior of a coward.
Why a group of people would get together for the sole purpose of destroying another human being is beyond comprehension. In addition to the comments posted throughout the internet, there is a pro-guilt website that was created to push nothing more than pure hatred toward Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. The site links to a discussion board with a disturbing cult like atmosphere.
What makes the pro-guilt website even more reprehensible is the fact that the site wraps the entire package of lies in the memory of Meredith Kercher. They use the memory of Meredith Kercher to promote their lies. There are photos of Meredith all over the site. The site is set up as a memorial to her. Using Meredith to promote hate is horribly disrespectful to Meredith and her family.
To the guilters, anyone that defends the innocence of Amanda and Raffaele is somehow disrespecting Meredith. It shows no disrespect to Meredith Kercher to search for the truth. In fact, finding the truth in regard to her murder, is the ultimate sign of respect to Meredith. Meredith and her family deserve justice. Condemning two innocent people will bring no justice for Meredith Kercher.
It is fairly easy to separate an intelligent person voicing his or her opinion from a guilter. Simply look at the content of their comments. If you read the same old repeated lies about mop buckets, bleach receipts, Harry Potter books, showers in blood soaked bathrooms, buying sexy underwear and doing cartwheels, then you know you are dealing with a guilter. When you talk to a guilter, you rarely hear any facts, just a lot of hate filled noise.
Look past the distraction. Silence the noise. The truth in this case is clear for anyone willing to see it. Rudy Guede killed Meredith Kercher and he acted alone.

Murder of Meredith Kercher
This website has been created to set the record straight about a deceptive Wikipedia style website that egregiously misrepresents the facts about the Meredith Kercher murder case in a blatant attempt to smear Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. The site was designed by an anonymous anti-Amanda Knox blogger using the alias “Edward McCall”.
