    Re: Italian court convicts Amanda Knox of murder

    Interesting update if it's true:

    Amanda Knox Bombshell: Convicted Killer Rudy Guede Told Cellmate Knox Didn't Do It, Says Paper - Crimesider - CBS News

    NEW YORK (CBS) The Italian newspaper La Repubblica and some Italian national television networks are reporting tonight a new version of events in the controversial Amanda Knox murder case in Perugia, Italy.


    Knox, 22, and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, 25, were convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher, along with a third man, Rudy Guede. Sollecito's attorneys, in conducting their own investigation, have interviewed a former cellmate of Rudy Guede.

    Guede, 23, allegedly admitted to his cellmate that Amanda and Raffaele were not with him when Meredith Kercher was murdered.

    Interesting! I've not heard anything more about this, but if I were Amanda's attorneys, I'd be filing court papers left and right.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Also ... it's interesting that the seemingly patriotic right .... is so willing to throw an American citizen to the wolves ... based on a verdict in a kangaroo court.

    I smell a double standard.
    Who elected you to the Italian judiciary? Why are you taking such interest in one of dozens of murder trials in Italy every year? Because she's American? Why are you questioning the case against her and not against Solecito, her co-defendant?

    Where do you get off calling a high court in a developed EU country a "kangaroo court"? I have no doubt you would react pretty strongly to someone calling a US murder trial a "kangaroo court". In what way is this American citizens being "thrown to the wolves"? She's had probably better representation than 90% of others tried for murder in Italy due to the high-profile nature of the case.

    Your attitude is insulting, pompous and xenophobic. And how about a word of condolence for the family of Meredith Kercher, the young Yorkshire student Knox and Solecito have now been shown, proved and convicted of murdering.

    Her appeal is already in hand. I've no doubt any new evidence will be accorded the weight it deserves depending on the strength of the material. I just hope that the media hoopla around these claims and rumours don't further turn the knife in the wound of the Kercher family.

    Andablue, have you read much about this case? If you read through this thread, you will see links to articles that show serious problems with the investigation that was conducted in this case. My original post talks about how I thought she was guilty. Several people here following the case closely laid out the problems. I can see why Vader calls it a kangaroo court.

    I have been following it. It has been a major story right across Europe. There have been all the usual conspiracy theories and flat-out xenophobia that you might expect with a high-profile murder case involving a foreign national. The foreigners compatriots are always stirred up to believe that their son/daughter couldn't be guilty and that, because the trial is taking place abroad, there must be something wrong with the verdict.

    You guys have to leave it to the Italian judiciary to do its job. There may or may not have been an imperfect investigation (frankly, when has there been a perfect one?) but they have an appeals system, just like the US. Insulting the Italian system simply because it's not the same as the US system is not on.

    While I don't know if she's innocent or not, it seems quite clear that the proceedings which took place were not a fair to the defendant. They wanted to indict her and it seemed obvious that her nationality had a lot to do with why they wanted to indict her.

    WTF? In what way did she not receive the same rights as Raffaele Sollecito, an Italian? Seemed obvious that her nationality had a lot to do with it? To whom was this obvious? Back up your extraordinary claims with some hard evidence. Why would an Italian court, Italy being one of the US's closest and most friendly allies, want to perjure their entire legal system in order to convict a rather strange but otherwise non-descript American student.

    Had Knox committed her crime in the US, not one of you posters would be calling foul. Not one of you. You are saying she's not receiving justice because she's American. I'm saying you're doing so because the court is Italian.
