    Re: Amanda Knox found guilty of murder again by Italian Court

    It doesn't surprise me that the court found her guilty. They have to pander to their people who were no doubt upset that she was aquitted last time and allowed to leave. IE this was just a sham court. They know that the US won't extradite due to our double jeapordy clause.

    I followed this case fairly closely and I couldn't believe that they convicted her in the first trial considering how inept the forensic team was in gathering their "evidence". If such a thing had happened in the US to the extent that it happend with Ms. Knox I wouldn't have blamed the judge one iota for summarily dismissing the case out right. Even if I thought that she was guilty as all get out. All other evidence that wasn't contaminated was based on conjecture and leaves alot of room for reasonable doubt.

    of course she isn't in Italy

    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
    I agree. I've read and heard a lot of the evidence in this case, and I haven't heard ANY evidence indicating she was involved. It was one weirdo guy's DNA all over the crime scene. It was HE who then claimed, after he was arrested and confessed, that Knox was involved. Like why would anyone believe that weirdo?

    I totally agree with her attorney, who said that there is no evidence at all to prove Amanda Knox's guilt in this case. Makes me wonder what the Italians are trying to hide. An inept investigation?

    Simple solution, if the Itallians ask for extradition just send them OJ instead.

    the purpose of a government is, among other things, protecting the rights of its citizens when its citizens are threatened by criminal conduct by a foreign nation. And like it or not, on the world stage, might makes right. And I'd rather pay taxes for our government to kick some Italian ass if they seize this girl than paying all the money we do to bail out has been countries who piss on our boots after we help them

The system doesn't work if countries make value judgements about the judicial systems in member countries.

    Besides, ever hear of Roman Polanski?
    yeah an American citizen who engaged in a crime in America and was never tried--a bit more blatant than this case

    Given their recent military history, I'd say you're being generous with a day. Just speak loudly and they'll surrender. Hell, the Ethiopians armed with spears beat them in WWII.

    Yes, but she's a ...gasp...American! In the eyes of the America-bashers, who are well represented here, that automatically makes her guilty. These guys are nothing if not predictable.

    Hopefully our country gives Italy a big middle finger when they demand that we hand over Knox.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
