    :\ Yeah, in the Movies or for famous/infamous people. Even then, not always the case.

    Ummmm, no, we don't. We sequester our juries so that they don't have access to sensational media reports.

    OK. Perhaps you can cite the evidence that implicates her in the murder. I'm waiting.

    I can't. This is important.

    Right, one of the cops allegedly hit her. I don't know if they did or not, as I was not in the room. But those OTHER things I listed are not in dispute. So even without the hitting, she was subjected to rather harsh interrogation techniques. It isn't difficult to see that a 20-year-old college girl might not hold up well under those conditions.

    Yes, it will get "results" all right. Pretty much any result you want, which is exactly why it's not always reliable.

    The lead prosecutor has a history of over-zealous prosecution.

    A key piece of forensic evidence was not collected until six weeks after the murder.

    The alleged murder weapon does not match the police composite which was extrapolated from the murder scene.

    The jury had full access to senationalistic media reports which were heavily biased against Amanda Knox.

    Yea, the Italian justice system sure is "different" from America's.
    Exactly! And aside from the total lack of evidence, the whole theory is just ridiculous. The prosecutor is asserting that a 20-year-old female with no history of crime, violence, mental illness, or anger management issues convinced two men whom she barely knew (and who didn't know each other at all) to participate in a gang-rape and murder. That hardly sounds like the type of crime that females commit very often. And aside from that, there is no physical evidence linking either Knox or Sollecito to the murder scene.

    That video to which you linked was quite informative. I was especially interested in the story of the American writer who the same prosecutor detained in conjunction with another murder. The prosecutor's ridiculous theory about THAT case (a group of people performing a Satanic ritual instead of a lone killer) was almost exactly the same as his theory in this case. He is clearly obsessed with the occult, and fundamentally prefers fanciful theories involving the occult to mundane theories that would stand up to Occam's Razor.

    Have you ignored everything we've been saying so far?

    The lead prosecutor obtained his motive from an occultist blogger that communicates with a dead Priest.

    HELLO!? Earth to Navy Pride! See the forest, yet?

    I'm mostly pissed at the media. They were more concerned with sensationalizing the trial than reporting the story objectively; no wonder so many people just assumed she was guilty. Even I assumed as much, until I saw Van Sant on The O'Reilly Factor (yes, I watch sometimes...):
