    This is getting confusing!!! I thought she was proven innocent and that's why they released her?

    i don't think your gun club could counter the use of tanks and aircraft.

    Yep, if a European country were to block an extradition process like that the American government would not be happy.

    What do you mean? Countries, including European countries, block extradition processes routinely when they would violate or diminish constitutional protections for their citizens or residents under their care. Double jeopardy is fiercely protected in the United States and any citizen, Amanda Knox or otherwise, would be able to call on legal protection to avoid extradition if their case fits. Her case seems to fit.

    I know literally nothing about this case, she killed her roommate or something right? But either way double jeopardy is something we should never respect.

    It was a show trial. This was for the benefit of their viewing public. They knew that she would not be extradited if convicted again. I guess the court of appeals would have to overturn it again given that there wasn't much new evidence added in the second trial.

    The Italians won't be "seizing" anyone, anywhere, other than in Italy. However, with extradition treaties around the world and Interpol operating worldwide, if she travels out of the US anytime in the future while the conviction is still on the books, she can be apprehended and subject to extradition to Italy. The system doesn't work if countries make value judgements about the judicial systems in member countries.

    Besides, ever hear of Roman Polanski?

    This is true, as it relates to extradition from the US but not as it relates to extradition from another country.
