Her interview on American television was interesting to say the least as she wants to change the image often portrayed in the media so the most obvious way to do this is to cash in....
    It never has, nor has she ever explained why she behaved the way she did after the murder. There are a ton of unanswered questions concerning her, her alibi and what she did.. and yes the Italian police did not do their jobs correctly.. or so it seems.

    Italy isn't like most of Western Europe when it comes to views on criminals. Italy's views on inmate treatment probably match closer to Greece/Turkey & Middle Eastern treatments. So while I wouldn't go out and support her claims, I really don't see Italians as being the most caring with their inmates.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    They are a hell of more caring than in American prisons lol. Her description sounds what you get in a standard American prison.

    I don't know it it's true or not since I know nothing about European justice systems, but I once read that the American system was concerned with fairness, sometimes at the expense of a just result (i.e. making sure the guilty are punished and the innocent go free) while other systems cared more about a just result than being fair.

    Given that different end goal it would seem that the Italians may well be doing the right thing.

    She changed her story on numerous occasion and now she is writing a book which conflicts with what she orginally said about her treatment in prison! I mean its not like she could make more money by changing the story because I mean everyone wants to read abut how lovely her prison guards were and how uneventful her stay was in prison.....

    Yes, Pete; everything American must be worse.

    Like I said before, she had already made these comments about prison either in Italy or right after she came back to the US so you continue to be wrong in saying that she did not. The bottom line is that you and most of Britain have a hard on for hating Knox because Kercher was British. Good for you, but maybe you should just keep that among yourselves.
