    They did. Along with bloody footprints, and on the handle of a knife with her flatmates' blood on the blade.

    Two extremely simple points to make to your statement.

    Nor would I ever wish to be friends to such a person as bigoted as you.
    2) I am not now nor ever have been a follower of Left wing Politics.

    This does not necessarily mean that they are in actual fact.

    I've been following this. The prosecution's statements sold me on the girl's guilt.

    The statement by the senator accusing the Italian justice system of anti-Americanism is way over the top. If you commit murder, you do the time. No extradition back to the U.S. for this one, especially given how heinous the crime scene was.

    The case was almost solely based on circumstantial evidence.

    However saying that, the way Knox acted just after the murder and the weeks and months after really put a doubt on her innocence. She did not act like someone who had just found her friend covered in blood. There was a report that she did freaking cartwheels at one point...She also blamed someone else off the bat, which very fast was proved to be an utter lie. On top of that she did actually confess at one point only to take the confession back and blame the Italian police for intimidation.

    The Italian judicial system is strange I have to admit. They focused a lot on her character, basically painting her as a slut into hard sexual games. This of course is disputed by the parents and friends from the US who only know the "angel" side of Knox. Who knows, people tend to do different things once away from the control of home/family/parents.

    But this is going to be appealed, but as I understand it, the guilty verdict will not change, only the length of the term.

    Re: Italian court convicts Amanda Knox of murder

    I've been following the whole thing for months too and while there are definitely many things that point to all three suspects being involved in this murder, I don't think that the prosecution has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that they're guilty. I'm especially doubtful of Rudy Guede's guilt. I think he's a coward and fled for fear he would be thought responsible for her death, but I really don't think he killed her.

    As for Amanda and Raffaelle, the truth about their characters lies somewhere between the biased demonic portrayals of them in the Italian media and the even more biased "Amanda is a sweet, innocent all-American girl" in the US media. The truth is somewhere in the middle. Young people often behave very differently away from their families and away from home. These two are not sweet innocent angels. And if they really did kill this girl, their behavior throughout this whole thing is truly chilling.

    My theory is that she died by accident. They were playing a dangerous game and it all went to hell in a split-second and they all panicked.

    Actually, I'm not horrified by the election result. How much can he do in 4 years? Now, the loss of a bunch of seats in the delegates was disappointing. A smoking ban went through and is effective December 1, 2009, which was passed while a Democrat was in office. That is what I am still cheering about. We never thought a smoking ban would pass in Virginia....but it HAS!

    I haven't read all the facts in the case lately. When it first came out, and I was reading the evidence against her, I thought she was guilty.

    Re: Italian court convicts Amanda Knox of murder

    Thisa case was a sham from the Get go but hey what do you expect from Italy. Thi sis the Country that has said it will proscute any current and former CIA/DoD folks.

    The United States needs to make it quite clear to Italy that 1. The Verdict needs to be set aside 2.Miss Knox released now not tommorrow or next week

    If they don't meet this two then the USA will place a 100% Taffif on all Italian Items.

    The so-called Court case was a joke the prosct. in his closing statement changed the murder time back a whole hour that alone should have cause a mistrail in any other Western Country that would have been grounds for a mistrail. The So-called DNA was never introduced nor was their any DNA showing that Miss Knox did the killing.

    Whata Bloody Sham time for Mr. Obama to show some leadership and demand thaqt Miss Knox be turned over tot he US Emb.
