Chloe Ayling Verdict

(33 Posts)
Andromeida59 Mon 11-Jun-18 18:23:30

Very happy to see that Chloe Ayling's kidnapper has been found guilty in Italy. I was disgusted by many comments about her reliability as a witness/victim because of the way she was dressed. I hope that those who doubted her because of the way she dressed feel thoroughly ashamed. There is no victim dress code.

I don't believe any of it, tbh, and Italian courts aren't exactly known for being very thorough.

kingseat2016 Mon 11-Jun-18 19:17:37

I’m agreeing with expat.

Caaarrrl Mon 11-Jun-18 19:18:30

It all seemed a bit fishy to me.

ParellelReality Mon 11-Jun-18 19:22:22

It wasn't the way she dresses that made people doubt her.

EdWinchester Mon 11-Jun-18 19:23:15

Agree with Expat. Tis all bollocks, I reckon.

CrispbuttyNo1 Mon 11-Jun-18 19:24:14

I agree with expat too

AgentProvocateur Mon 11-Jun-18 19:53:37

I agree with Expat too. And not because of the way she was dressed hmm

PinkBuffalo Mon 11-Jun-18 19:54:29

Afraid I agree with all the above. And yes, it wasn't the way she dressed that made people doubt her, as PP said.

QuackPorridgeBacon Mon 11-Jun-18 21:13:58

I don’t believe it either. If anything I think it should have been more thorough. Something doesn’t seem right.

AuntFidgetWonkhamStrongNajork Mon 11-Jun-18 21:50:25

Sure, Jan hmm

PaulAnkaDog Mon 11-Jun-18 22:28:02

Stinks to the high heavens and that’s nothing to do with her dress sense.

Chuckle65 Mon 11-Jun-18 22:29:30

Agree with expat.
It wasn't her clothes that made everyone doubt her hmm where are you getting that from?!

Flaminglingos Mon 11-Jun-18 22:33:58

OP If you'd been kidnapped would you be striking pouty model poses during an interview afterwards?

mcqueencar Mon 11-Jun-18 22:35:29

I just find it all so odd

mcqueencar Mon 11-Jun-18 22:36:12

She defo seemed thirsty.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Mon 11-Jun-18 22:36:31

Why is it odd? I feel like this totally passed me by...

HappyLollipop Mon 11-Jun-18 22:44:40

I still don't believe it, much like PP I don't trust the Italian courts verdict as I don't think it would have held up in a British court at all.

twattymctwatterson Mon 11-Jun-18 23:15:39

The thing is that people don't always behave the way you would expect them to after trauma so I try not to let that influence me too much nowadays. Don't know enough about the specific evidence involved with this case to form an opinion

I thought of Amanda Knox when I saw this today.

GeordieTerf Tue 12-Jun-18 01:15:53

I thought we had a "we believe you" policy on here?

I believer her.

"OP If you'd been kidnapped would you be striking pouty model poses during an interview afterwards?"

Those sorts of statements have been used against Women, since the Court system started. If you aren't a convincing victim, then the crime against you, was obviously wanted.

It's why the Famous Ealing perpetrators got longer sentences for the burglary than the rape.

Birdsgottafly Tue 12-Jun-18 01:25:04

"I thought we had a "we believe you" policy on here? "

That depends on what you look like and how you dress (or if you have lips that look pouty).

And we think old school male rape jurors were tough on victims.

StealthPolarBear Tue 12-Jun-18 06:30:39

I thought we believe you was specifically for rapes where women tend to be disbelieved by default. Not any crime with the woman as aa victim. Could be wrong though.
Aunt fidget, who is Jan?

FatCow2018 Tue 12-Jun-18 06:51:04

Yeah I'm another with expat, and ot haf precicely zero to do with the way she dresses! What a ridiculous statement!
