    You asked me a simple question so I gave you a simple answer, no I would not expect a person potentially facing the death penalty in the US to be extradited to the US by a foreign country if the death penalty went against a fundamental principle of that country. The banning of double jeopardy is a fundamental principle of the US and beyond that I feel its one that personally must be promised in order to help ensure a stable society and honest judicial system.

    Why are you angry at me

    Showing utter ignorance of the American justice system. It's called double jeopardy. She can't be tried and retried endlessly for the same crime. Canada and other nations block the extradition process all the time and thus far we haven't gone ape**** over it.

    Not. I thought I was being funny.
    I may need to rethink my refusal to use those smiley-thingys.

    Good for her. Too bad Italy doesn't have to chip in as well for their shoddy treatment of her.

    I think the verdict is more of a condemnation of the laughably inept, corrupt and completely dysfunctional Italian justice system.

    One former prosecutor doubts the USA would grant extradition given the double jeopardy argument


    I followed this trial pretty closely and read numerous reviews. Based on what I learned, I would have "Rule 29'd" the case. (meaning grant the defense a directed verdict at the close of the prosecution case). The Prosecution was a joke in this matter
    Agreed. I can't see her being extradited because of double jeopardy either.

    I didn't really follow the trial but was honestly stunned when I learned in Italy that acquittals are appealable.
    That seems perverse.

    Actually, if I was an American and lived in America, I'd have no trouble spending the rest of my life in your great country - As a Canadian, I'd have no trouble living out my life in Canada as well. The US is so varied and vast that it should meet anyone in her position's need for vacation and travel options.
    The following countries currently have extradition treaties with Italy. Argentina, Australia, Austria, The Bahamas, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Germany, Kenya, Lesotho, New Zealand, Paraguay, Peru, The Vatican, Singapore, Sri Lanka, The United States of America and Uruguay and the European Union.

    Still leaves her with around 160 not having such treaties with Italy. I agree with just staying within the U.S. boundaries.
    Will have to get back with you on Interpol interventions. Believe permission needs to be given depending on treaties.

    When I came back to Dublin I was court-martialled in my absence and sentenced to death in my absence, so I said they could shoot me in my absence.

    There's a book called "The Monster of Florence" that goes into some depth on on the author's personal experiences with the Italian criminal justice system. To call it "inept" would be the understatement of the century. I'd hate to be caught up in the American justice system. If even half that book is true then to be caught up in Italy's would be much, much worse.

    I too followed the case pretty closely and can say I have serious doubts about her and the boyfriend. They acted very strangely after the murder and had inconsistent stories. Along with the evidence that was not tainted by incompetence.. like that the whole scene looked staged as a burglary.. and you can only conclude that either they did it or were heavily involved in the murder.

    As for the trial being a sham trial and the Italian court system being inept and corrupt.. funny coming from the Americans.. who piss up and down on the law depending on how much money you have or where you are from. Amanda got consular help.. pity the US does not give that to people visiting the US..

    Well I Amanda Knox wont be leaving the US for the rest of her life.. because step outside and an international arrest warrant will bring her back to Italy to serve her time.
    She's quilty as hell. There's at least one American that doesn't believe her. But...gasp...the America haters think she's guilty because she's an American.
