    The ECHR is a separate organisation to the EU, it's run by a separate organisation the Council of Europe which covers 820 million people compared to the 500 million covered by the EU.

    I am more than aware what the ECHR's states in relation to it's articles and that it takes precedent over national laws.

    Is Amanda Knox Guilty?
    Followed the story some in months past.

    Yeah. She may or may not actually be guilty of murder. But she very likely has some dirty hands in the event....

    Obviously. Did I say other?

    As am I, but you feel the need to inform me (of what, I'm not sure).

    Just to try to clarify the point I intended to make, we are part of Europe and it's not always within our gift to make our own laws these days.

    Actually yes you did, you started prattling on about the EU and our membership, when this has nothing to do with the EU and everything to do with ECHR.

    It might well be within our gift as you put it, as the Conservatives have suggested leaving the ECHR and replacing it with a British Bill of Rights.

    Don't leave the US and it's not an issue to begin with. Honestly, she shouldn't have gotten any aid from the US when she was tried originally but now that she's home there's no way the US should allow her to be sent back to a Socialist **** hole like Italy.
    I feel a bit bad for you. I can't imagine what life would be like if I decided there was nothing new, exciting or wondrous in life out there in the wide world -- that I had everything I needed exactly where I was and didn't want anything else.

    Besides evidently making you, in my opinion, somewhat offensive (Italy beats the US in a number of human development index and quality of life index areas), you're also wilfully shutting yourself off from so much culture, history, beauty and experience, not just physically but mentally and emotionally, by taking the stance that there's pretty much nothing out there that interests you.

    Don't you find it oppressive and boring?

    Is Amanda Knox Guilty?
    Good Lord! She lived in the house! Your DNA, foot prints, etc. is all over your house too. The above list is some of the LAMEST evidence ever presented! I can't even believe there would be an indictment on that "evidence" as you call it.

    she was also interrogated in a language she had very limited competence in.

    The fact that a convicted (on several other crimes) loser who had absolutely no common interest with Amanda and her italian lover, was also convicted of the crime pretty well blows the Italian theory of her guilt out of the water

    Had she not been tried and found innocent once, I'd say yes. However, seeing as how this would be extradition for the sake of what appears to be double jeopardy, no.

    It's unbelievable. The whole thing is ridiculous, and I really don't think she did it.
