    smart move by the Italian High Court. They didn't need their justice system publicly humiliated yet a second, third or fourth time. The English family ought to get a cleaner to deal with Rudy though

    They're not going to live this down for a while, I think. For about the next ten years, I believe that when people hear "The Italian justice system" they're going to think "Amanda Knox." And that's even taking into account our horrific attention span.

    Yeah, I mean how damned many times can they actually prosecute someone for the same crime over there? They just kept overturning on appeal, then retrying, then overturning... what kind of ****ed up system does Italy have? Sheesh.

    At this point I don't even care if she did it. I just never want to see her face or hear her name ever again.

    I wonder if the Italians will compensate her for all the time she spent in their crappy prisons given she has now been cleared? Of course being jailed has made her rich but still. The Italians ought to pay up

    The Italians will probably claim since she can make money off of book deals she should pay them for any money recieved over her income at time of improsonment.

    Sanity prevails. Solletico was the person who was potentially going to get ****ed over by this circus though.

    Have friends who have traveled to Europe and their least favorite country was Italy. Italy has passed France in rudeness.
    Not on my bucket list either.
