    Re: Amanda Knox's stories dont match up once again.

    The "weird behaviour" argument is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. There are no guidelines for appropriate behaviour in these circumstances, no matter the life experience..

    I personally don't think it's admirable to profit off the event, but that decision in no way implies her guilt.

    She hasn't been finally acquitted. She's about to go on trial again. That's why we're discussing it.

    True, but it is testament to her character. If she is finally convicted that will weigh when it comes to sentencing.

    I would normally agree but a commentator on CNN last night made a good point last night about the financial angle.

    First assume she's innocent. Lots of people are profiting from the case - her lawyers and the media primarily. The woman is making 4.5 million on her book. She has about 1.5 million in legal fees. She went through the trauma of a trial, lost 4 years of her life while in prison and will likely not be able to get any kind of well paying job, except maybe as some kind of celebrity-oddity. 3 million to compensate for that doesn't seem like a whole lot to me.

    Of course if she's guilty nothing that I just said holds.

    While I am dubious about her complete innocence and despite what I just wrote, her family is heavily in debt after the experience and it affected her education/career opportunities for 4 yrs....if not into the future.

    So I don't begrudge her wanting to make $$. I hope most of it goes to her parents.

    Right, and considering everything you think you know about American prisons comes from movies and TV . . .

    Her description sounds what you get in a standard American prison.

    If it's about her parents finances, her parents should have talked her out of it and taken the hit. This isn't the sort of celebrity that will do her well in the long term, not to mention the victim of the crime and her family.

I agree their is reasonable doubt which is why she walks free today but that doesnt mean I have to accept her as innocent. Her interview and her book show to me what a shallow person she is and confims that she adores the media attention. She may fool people like you with comments like " I want to visit her grave and reach out to her family" but I think its cheap. Of course if she was to donate a large sum of the profits to the family or even a related charity I might think differently but of course she wont. I look forward to her guest apperances on US networks everytime an American gets arrested overseas and expect her to milk it for years to come.
    Actually, I am talking about the death penalty and people like you who claim to "know" things that they don't are one of the reasons why I don't support it, as I said.

    Great, you admit that there is "reasonable doubt" which is a roundabout way of admitting that you were full of it when you said "most people know that she was involved". Like I said, you don't know jack.

    Oh please. She hasn't "fooled me." I don't even care for her - especially after last night's interview that made her seem like a narcissist. However, unlike you, I don't judge the value of a case according to the suspect's personality. I judge it according to DNA evidence. There wasn't any linking her to the scene so the only thing you have going for you is "I just feel like she had something to do with it." Guess what? Your feelings are irrelevant.

    Again, I have not followed this case at all. So maybe I'm way wrong.
    1. Yeah, it was her house so that could be an explanation. Also, the one guy who put her at the house turned out to be a heroin addict who's apparently a frequent witness at murder trials. He also changed his statement several times saying that he may have seen her at the house on different days.

    2. Agreed. The "erratic behavior" argument is dumb. Some people lose touch with reality after stuff like that.
