    It's not the fact that Knox's DNA was found on that knife that is troubling. After all it could have gotten there at any time in Raffaele's appartment. It's the traces of Meredith's DNA found on the blade that are the most damning, coupled with the fact that the knife was found in an apartment she'd never set foot in. Of course there's no way to double check that as it was destroyed during the first round of tests. None of this is proof that Amanda killed Meredith, tho. In fact, it points more towards Raffaele's guilt.

    Testimony and circumstantial evidence like this would NEVER be enough to convict someone in an American court. The American criminal justice system is all about EVIDENCE. The least credible defendant in the world will walk if there is no evidence that they committed the crime...and rightly so. There is no evidence whatsoever that she was involved in this murder. None. Zip. Zero.

    There is no evidence that Knox had more than a distant acquaintanceship with Geude, or that Solecito and Geude knew each other at all. There is, however, evidence that the prosecutor (who is under indictment for abuse of power) got his ridiculous Satanic-group-sex-ritual-gone-wrong theory from an occultist and had used this same ridiculous theory in prior cases.
    I never understand people who talk as thought they know ALL the facts in the case when they didn't sit in the courtroom EVERY DAY and hear all the testimony and see all the evidence submitted. I don't understand it. Clearly your facts cannot be refuted by anything else anyone says. So, I'm done here. Have a nice day.

    Well I don't have all the facts, but this was reported today
    Knox verdict leaves many questions unanswered - CNN.com

    The strongest evidence against Knox and Sollecito was the fake break-in the prosecution says they staged to cover up their role in the crime, prosecutor Giuliano Mignini seemed to feel. He spent about an hour at the beginning of his summation talking about the break-in.

    But even the prosecution admits the evidence is largely circumstantial.

    Thanks for this. I have printed out a bunch of articles that I will read to educate myself. I lost interest in this case some time ago, but I remember thinking that things did not look good for Amanda Knox.

    My complaint with Kandahar's posts in here is that he writes like he's omniscient on the subject matter and that since HE HE HE HE HE thinks nothing can link her to the murder NO ONE ELSE should have such opinion. Puleeze.

    I don't know if she committed those murders or not, but it does sound like she didn't get a fair trial over it. I'd like to be assured that the trial was fair and impartial.

    I agree. Man would I hate to be in a foreign country accused of a crime.

    It's odd that he would cite that as the strongest evidence, since it doesn't even remotely implicate Knox/Sollecito. All it shows (if the break-in was indeed staged) is that SOMEONE tried to cover their tracks.

    If you cited some evidence linking her to the murder and believed that implicated her, that would be one thing. But instead you said you "fully supported this verdict" because...well, because your gut told you she was guilty and because you didn't like her behavior. You're right, frankly I don't think you should have an opinion like that. She's now going to spend the next 26 years in prison not because there's any evidence she committed the crime, but because a few jurors (with full access to the unflattering stories about her in the Italian media) thought with their gut rather than their brain.

    ..... Or perhaps they simply carried out their duty unhindered by "evidence" filtered through a partisan American media storm.
