    Re: Amanda Know - Railroaded

    I'd like to Railroad her...
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    After all of the appeals and reviews of that case, it is clear he was guilty. AI and other anti-death penalty groups are giving a very one-sides picture of the case.

    the fact is the dude from the Ivory Coast is the obvious killer


    A Grand Jury sitting in the USA never would have indicted her for this crime
    I largely agree with the point that you're making, but if I'm remembering correctly, the initial evidence included some later debunked DNA related stuff (e.g. linking Amanda to the knife that was allegedly used in the killing). A US Grand Jury might very well have indicted based on that evidence.

    Re: Amanda Knox - Railroaded

    My instinct suggests that Knox at a minimum was involved in the murder. Her detailed attempt to try an pin the killing on her employer at the bar is troubling. Will never know for sure. Would be morbidly fascinating to have been a fly on the wall when the event transpired.

    Indicted maybe...but not convicted. It was such a small amount that it very well could have been gotten from having cut her finger on that knife a week before. Remember, Knox and the victim were supposedly friends. I don't know about you, but I've had friends cut thier fingers on my knives while helping me to cook a dinner.

    Sound thinking, perhaps true-I doubt forensic teams in the USA would have been that bad though

    Re: Amanda Knox - Railroaded

    Ars Technica has a fairly comprehensive writeup of how DNA evidence is collected and analyzed...and why it was such complete horse**** in this case.

    She didn't attempt to pin it on her employer. She was interrogated for 14 hours by multiple police officers, without a lawyer in a language that she was just beginning to learn and according to her she was also hit by one of the officers. False confessions have happened under much less stressful conditions.

    Well, according to everyone but Knox (and text messages between the two), she and the victim had a tense relationship.
