    Amanda Knox found guilty of murder again by Italian Court

    Amanda Knox found guilty of murder again by Italian court - CNN.com

    apparently she was sentenced to 28.5 years

    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 saw this and was wondering, how Italy would get her back.
    Short of her returning on her own, I don't see the US sending her back.

    Of course she is going to be limited in foreign travel. Of course her bogus conviction is going to be appealed again.

    We can only hope the US never expects Italy to honour any extraditions to the US in future. That might not bode so well, assuming Italy comes up trumps in the WOT.

    That is one consideration. Italy if it was smart wouldn't demand extradition. Their justice system is a joke

    What is funny here is Americans actually believe this bitch because she is pretty and has a good PR team.

    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.

    Agreed. I think that if they were that bothered, they shouldn't have released her in the first place. It's not like there'd be WW3 over Foxy Knoxy.

    If the Italians seize a US citizen in any place but Italy, the USA should send in a hit team as it would be an act of war. My local gun club could probably take out the Italian military in about a day

    and yet if the US doesnt get what it wants it throws the toys out of the pram...
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    Are you sure that is the phrase you were looking for?
