    How is it a testament to her character? It's only a "testament to her character" if you attribute bad intentions to her publishing of the book. Let's say she's publishing the book because she wants to pay back her parents and friends who spent millions of dollars on her defense. Is that also a testament to her character or is only such when it makes her look like a villain to Europeans like yourself?

    If she is convicted it will only prove that the Italian justice system is even more corrupt then we already believe. The evidence against her would not have survived a probable cause hearing in the USA

    It's none of your business why she did or does anything. Knox was acquitted and she is free in the U.S. where she belongs.

    This time its her memoir in which she describes prison life as tough, inappropriate behaviour by staff, sexual passes and a humiliating medical exam etc. All of which of course doesn't match what she previously she at the time but hey it's not the first time she has changed previous statements for personal gains. 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....
    Kangaroo court at it's finest. The evidence was so lacking. If I were her, I would never go back to Italy again.

    agree. you'd think after most of our WWII vets had died off the Italians wouldn't want to resurrect the widespread perception of total incompetence that was created in that war once again in the minds of many Americans. They should be known for great sports cars, and top of the line target shotguns, not a court system that makes Pol Pot's regime look fair

    This case was mucked up terribly from the beginning with the investigation, contaminating evidence and all the other mistakes they made. Then to actually try to get a conviction on that sloppy work is a joke. That would NEVER fly over here in the US.

    You are right I have been involved in at least 100 criminal appellate matters and this sort of incompetence-especially in a case that has world wide attention-would not be tolerated

    I wonder if it would even make it to trial phase here in America?

    I sure wouldn't take that sort of facts to a grand jury or a preliminary hearing

    Well if it was me, I'd do what I thought was right for my family and probably help my folks. But I have no idea what kind of person she is.
