    I hope she got a fair trial, but it certainly was a very strange case any way you look at it.
    I agree that her behavior was strange, but she was in a strange situation; one she had never experienced before.

    People cope in different ways. Not everyone sobs or frowns constantly when they experience trauma. Just because she didn't act like people expected her to doesn't mean she's a bad person or that she wasn't sad.

    Since when is a person expected to prove their innocence!?

    If I accuse you of being a secret pedophile, does the onus fall upon you to prove your innocence?

    Here's the question you should be asking: what evidence is there that she's guilty?

    i don't know, i wasn't at the trial. perhaps her lies, along with circumstantial evidence, contributed to the verdict.

    If she lied and if she was there when it happened then she was at the very least an accomplice or accessory to the murder. I'm not sure, but I don't think she called the police and apparently she was there. Again, I didn't go over all the evidence. And it's not really that interesting for me. But I'm sure her family and friends will support her and help her get an appeal if they feel that she is innocent.

    What lies are you talking about, and is it a lie when someone coerces you into saying it?

    ...along with circumstantial evidence...
    Like what?

    I already addressed every single argument the prosecution made in post #39, and explained why it's full of crap. You're welcome to address any of the points I made if you disagree with them. No evidence proving her innocence is necessary, as the burden of proof should ALWAYS be on the prosecution.

    Do murderers typically do cartwheels after the police show up, whereas innocent people do not? Do you have some statistics on this I'm not aware of? Or are you just assuming that unusual behavior indicates guilt?

    Maybe doing cartwheels helps her cope with emotional trauma.

    Maybe she was just happy that she didn't get raped and murdered by Rudy Guede.

    Maybe she wanted to piss you off specifically.

    Regardless, her doing cartwheels in no way proves, or even indicates, that she is guilty of murder. I find it disturbing how many people are willing to play quick and loose with their legal standards.

    To hell with that "innocent until proven guilty" crap! She was doing carthweels!

    The lead prosecutor has been feeding misinformation to the press since the moment he announced the guilt of Amanda Knox, and now you're regurgitating it. The lead prosecutor should be put on trial for abuse of office.

    Oh wait - I forgot! He's already on trial for abuse of office...

    Sorry, but it seems like you didn't go over any of the evidence, but that's quite alright. I'm not expecting you become intimately familiar with the case, but if you aren't going to learn the specifics then it's best to withhold judgment entirely.
