    What they believe is irrelevant. You don't convict people on "beliefs". The prosecution had nothing but outlandish theories, character assassination, sloppy forensic teams, dna "evidence" so corrupted it would have been thrown out by a kangaroo court, circumstantial evidence and a rabid tabloid media obsessed with the American defendant.

    Thats pretty much how amandas lawyer put it in an interview I watched the other day...when she said that the police broke the window of the crime scene room and all piled in and trampled everything instead of going through the front door...my jaw dropped, if we did that here heads would have been rolling...

    Yeah, because that's what the prosecution told them for the past four years and because grieving parents want a sense of closure. Not a good enough reason. All the evidence points to Rudy Guede killing her, and no evidence points to Amanda Knox or Rafael Sollecito ever even meeting Guede, much less participating in the murder.
    amanda knox threw an innocent man under the bus for the murder, and she lied to police. her boyfriend could not corroraborate her "alibi". the dna evidence was screwed up, so true, no dna evidence. that doesn't negate the fact that knox lied on more than occasion, and says she came home to find the door open and blood all over the place but did nothing but take a shower. while she's been found not guilty, i don't believe it. who does cartwheels in a police station? why did the police find NO fingerprints from knox in the house where she lived? not even in her own bedroom? (except one)?

    she got off, fine. i just hope this isn't another joran vandersloot experience.

    I'm glad she's out, none of the evidence points to her, and in a country with a half decent legal system she would never have lost those 4 years of her life.

    they also had her confession. while i think the work was sloppy and the evidence thin, i don't really believe she had nothing to do with it. too many lies and much odd behavior.

    Already addressed. The POLICE made up that story and then force-fed it to her during an interrogation. After about 10 hours of high-pressure interrogation (during which she claims she was hit by a police officer), she told them what they wanted to hear. None of this was even disputed except for whether or not she was struck by a cop.

    her boyfriend could not corroraborate her "alibi".
    Both Knox and Sollecito have stated that they were together at his apartment on the night of the murder, and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise.

    the dna evidence was screwed up, so true, no dna evidence. that doesn't negate the fact that knox lied on more than occasion,
    Lying is not necessarily a sign of guilt.

    and says she came home to find the door open and blood all over the place but did nothing but take a shower.
    False. She claimed she saw a bit of blood, but not enough to indicate foul play.

    while she's been found not guilty, i don't believe it. who does cartwheels in a police station?
    Do murderers do cartwheels in the police station? Do you have some statistical evidence that suggests guilty people are more likely to do cartwheels in the police station than innocent people (or even a single example of a clearly guilty person doing this)? It sounds like you are trying to conflate "odd behavior" with "guilty behavior." The two are not the same.

    why did the police find NO fingerprints from knox in the house where she lived? not even in her own bedroom? (except one)?
    As you already acknowledged, there was blood all over the crime scene. Both Meredith Kercher's and Rudy Guede's. Are you suggesting that Knox and Sollecito participated in the murder, then managed to clean up not only their blood, but every last fingerprint in the apartment...while leaving plenty of evidence to incriminate Guede? This is highly implausible, if not physically impossible.

    she got off, fine. i just hope this isn't another joran vandersloot experience.
    This girl is innocent. And not just in an "insufficient evidence" way, but in a "she clearly didn't do it" way.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    She was beyond tired and being told to say certain things or else they would have kept at it...cartwheels...just trying to unwind a bit, I would have been doing pushups probably...the police didn't find much of anything because they corrupted the crime scene and the forensics in that town are somewhat backward...give the girl a break, yu're just out for blood.

    Same with Casey Anthony, right? But lies and odd behavior does not make evidence.

    probably because they are stupid enough to believe that POS corrupt disgrace of a prosecutor who should be in jail himself or perhaps "sleepin with da fishes"

    this looks to be a bad case of white guilt. The guy still in jail has a record, he had no reason to be in the house yet his DNA was in the crime scene

    as to her answers after hours upon hours of being given the third degree without counsel-as I noted, give me a couple days with some 20 year old kid who doesn't speak English as a first language and no lawyer and I can almost guarantee they will confess to anything I want them to
