It's being suggested by some News Sources today that Knox will be extradited from the US to Italy, should the Italians request extradition.???
US Legal experts have already made it clear that the United States entered into an extradition treaty with Italy and, in doing so, accepted Italy's criminal justice system.

So we can play semantic games and we can play "gotcha" if you want - the basic facts and outcomes are the same. Had your purpose been a discussion of the issues rather than a blatant attack on me personally, that would have been evident.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
The Swiss were wise and respected her wishes, while some loons in the US wanted a show trial to get the CA DA some international publicity.
Polanski himself can't be too critical of the US justice system, however, considering Manson is behind bars for life.
