    Amanda Knox - Railroaded

    Peter Van Sant's report on the Amanda Knox trial. This poor girl is being railroaded by an over-zealous prosecutor; it's egregious.

    What did you expect from an Italian kangaroo court?

    I didn't know it was THIS bad. I mean, it's really, really bad. There is absolutely no solid evidence to support the prosecution's case. The Italian justice system is a joke.

    Indeed. WHich is why Hilary Clinton needs to get involved and condem the Italian's miscariage of justice.

    Then she needs to demand they release Amanda Knox.

    Re: Amanda Know - Railroaded

    I'm not the most knowledgeable person on this subject, but it seems to me like everyone's looking at this wrongly. If the laws of the Italian justice system were followed and she was found guilty, then that's the end of the story. That's the risk she took by going to live in Italy. The fact that most people think she wouldn't have been found guilty by an American court is irrelevant. She wasn't in America.

    Now if the rules of their system weren't followed, then she should appeal within that system and hopefully be vindicated that way.

    I KNEW you couldn't resist.

    Tell me, which set of international laws governs the conduct of war and the categorization of participants thereof? That would be the Geneva Conventions, not the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Moreover, nothing in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights precludes the possibility of forfeiting those rights under exigent circumstances, such as those outlined by the Geneva Conventions.

    Again, please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that document is legally binding. Italian criminal law would still take precedence. And even if it was, that's a very bland generic statement which leaves itself up to a lot of interpretation. Just because Italy's judicial system doesn't work like ours doesn't mean it isn't fair and impartial. Like I said earlier, if you go live in a foreign country, you're subject to their laws and judicial system regardless of whether you think that system is fair or not. If you don't like that, don't go live there.
