Is this true?

    Not that it matters much. I remember when I was stationed in Germany, we were told repeatedly, that German laws, and justice systems were far different, and that if convicted while in Germany there was little that America could do.

    If Knox wanted to play the game in Italy, and think that just because she was an American that this shielded her, she is sadly mistaken.

    Does anyone really care what Ann Coulter says? She's a rabid, foaming at the mouth, retarded lunatic. Nothing of value ever escapes her mouth.

    i don't know how the justice system works in italy, but i tend to think the italians would have been very careful with such a high profile case. she committed a crime there, and will be punished (or not) according to their rules.

    because i believe she DID it, i really have no sympathy.

    Until now I went along with the American media on this, and thought that she was innocent. After hearing Coulter lay out the evidence, Coulter who is a legal scholar BTW, I now think that Italy got it right.

    Kudos to you liblady, you also see through the BS surrounding this.

    I don't care if anyone cares. I was making an observation, because I thought it was kinda funny that a buncha Libbos landed on the same side of an issue with Ann Coulter. Lighten up.

    I have sympathy since I don't believe she got a fair trial. Guilty or not.

    Note: This isn't about Coulter. it is about Knox.
