Karma Catches Up With Tiger Woods And Amanda Knox

Karma Catches Up With Tiger Woods And Amanda Knox

By Robert Paul Reyes


"American student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend have been found guilty by an Italian court of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

Knox was jailed for 26 years and Raffaele Sollecito, 25, for 25 years after a jury found them both guilty of murder and sexual violence." Read More

In America Tiger Woods` athleticism and good looks let him get away with unbridled promiscuity for a long time. But pride cometh before destruction, and Tiger`s arrogant way that he handled his moment of crisis had led to his downfall.

In Italy Amanda Knox, known in the tabloids as Foxy Knoxy, imagined that her good looks would permit her to get away with murder. But the culture of celebrity isn`t as cemented in Europe as it is in the United States, and an Italian court found her guilty of murder.

Maybe there is a God in heaven, Amanda Knox will suffer behind bars, and we will read about Tiger Woods in the tabloids instead of the sports page.
