Yes, in accordance with the US-Italy extradition treaty.
Yes, she should be imprisoned somewhere, but maybe in the US.
No, Americans shouldn't be extradited to foreign nations even if they're guilty.
No, she isn't guilty.
No. Of course not. **** italy.
bears, bulls, white sox fan 4 life!!!
* the fact Knox initially confessed that she was in the house on the night of the murder and that she heard Miss Kercher scream, identifying a Congolese bar owner, Patrick Lumumba, as the assailant. She told the court during the trial that the confession was made under duress but then repeated the entire account in a five page memorandum the next morning. She later claimed Italian Authorities beat her, something which was strongly denied by everyone involved in the inquiry.
* the accusation of a completely innocent man Patrick Lumumba by Amanda Knox;
* the fact forensic evidence proves that multiple people were involved in the murder and that Meredith, a string healthy young woman was over powered by a number of attackers:
* the fact that Lumumba was promptly arrested and spent two weeks in jail and Knox seemed quite happy for him to remain jail . It was only by chance that a Swiss businessman read about the case and came forward to say he had been talking to Lumumba in his bar on the night of the murder — offering him a rock-solid alibi. Lumumba has also always claimed Knox was the one behind the murder that night and that Knox was the worlds greatest actress.
* the fact Knox then changed her story saying she was far away from the scene with her boyfriend at his place that night and that they watch the film Amelie on his lap top.
* the computer records which show that no-one was at Raffaele’s computer during the time of the murder despite him claiming he was using that computer, whilst Sollecito could not back up Knox’s alibi on the night of the murder. Whilst she claimed she spent the evening with him, smoking marijuana, watching the French film Amelie and making love. Sollecito told police he could not remember if Knox was with him that evening or not.
* the utterly inexplicable computer records in relation to the morning after the murder, starting at 5.32 am and including multiple file creations and interactions thereafter all during a time that Raffaele and Amanda insist they were asleep until 10.30am
* the DNA of Raffaele Sollecito on Meredith’s bra-clasp in her locked bedroom;
* the almost-entire naked footprint of Raffaele on a bathmat that in *no way* fits that of the other male in this case – Rudy Guede;
* the fact that Raffaele’s own father blew their alibi that they were together in Raffaele’s flat at the time of the killing with indisputable telephone records;
* the DNA of Meredith Kercher on the knife in Raffaele’s flat which Raffaele himself sought to explain as having been from accidentally “pricking” Meredith’s hand in his written diary despite the fact Meredith had never been to his flat (confirmed by Amanda Knox);
* the correlation of where Meredith’s phones were found to the location of Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guedes’s flats;
* Amanda’s DNA mixed with Meredith Kercher’s in five different places just feet from Meredith’s body;
* the separate witnesses who testified on oath that Amanda and Raffaele were at the square 40 metres from the girls’ cottage on the evening of the murder and the fact that Amanda was seen at a convenience store at 7.45am buying cleaning products, again while she said she was in bed;
* the fact Amanda Knox made two statements to Meredith's friends that the police found suspicious because they contained details that Amanda Knox should not have known. Indeed Meredith's roommate Natalie Hayward and other friends of Meredith's in Perugia at the time such as Amy Frost and Robyn Carmel Butterworth have always claimed they believe Knox to be the murderer.
* the fact that when Amanda Knox rang Meredith’s mobile telephones, ostensibly to check on the “missing” Meredith, she did so for just three seconds - registering the call but making no effort to allow the phone to be answered in the real world;
* the knife-fetish of Raffaele Sollecito and his formal disciplinary punishment for watching animal porn at his university – so far from the wholesome image portrayed;
* the fact that claimed multi-year kick-boxer Raffaele apparently couldn’t break down a flimsy door to Meredith’s room when he and Amanda were at the flat the morning after the murder but the first people in the flat with the police who weren’t martial artists could;
* the extensive hard drug use of Sollecito admitted by Amanda Knox herself;
* the fact that Amanda knew details of the body and the wounds despite not being in line of sight of the body when it was discovered;
* the lies of Knox on the witness stand in July 2009 about how their drug intake that night (“one joint”) is totally contradicted by Sollecito’s own contemporaneous diary;
* the fact that after a late evening’s questioning, Knox wrote a 2,900 word email home which painstakingly details what she said happened that evening and the morning after that looks *highly* like someone committing to memory, at 3.30 in the morning, an extensive alibi;
* the fact that both Amanda and Raffaele both said they would give up smoking dope for life in their prison diaries despite having apparently nothing to regret;
* the fact that when Rudy Guede was arrested, Raffaele Sollecito didn’t celebrate the “true” perpetrator being arrested (which surely would have seen him released) but worried in his diary that a man whom he said he didn’t know would “make up strange things” about him despite him just being one person in a city of over 160,000 people. Guede has always maintained that Knox committed the murder, and has had his sentence cut by nearly half and is eligible for parole from 2014 onward. It will be interesting to hear what Guede has to say on his release.;
* the fact that both an occupant of the cottage and the police instantly recognised the cottage had not been burgled but had been the subject of a staged break-in where glass was *on top* of apparently disturbed clothes;
* that Knox and Sollecito both suggested each other might have committed the crime and Sollecito TO THIS DATE does not agree Knox stayed in his flat all the night in question;
* the bizarre behaviour of both of them for days after the crime;
* the fact that cellphone records show Knox did not stay in Sollecito’s flat but had left the flat at a time which is completely coincidental with Guede’s corroborated presence near the girl’s flat earlier in the evening;
* the fact that Amanda Knox’s table lamp was found in the locked room of Meredith Kercher in a position that suggested it had been used to examine for fine details of the murder scene in a clean up;
* the unbelievable series of changing stories made up by the defendants after their versions became challenged; Knox’s inexplicable reaction to being shown the knife drawer at the girl’s cottage where she ended up physically shaking and hitting her head.
Still, if she's so keen to prove her "innocence" she can quite easily attend the case in Italy and prove it, so how about it AK Rowling. Then again Knox prefers being around her US PR Team who feed gullible US citizens lots of misinformation including that it's all Italy's Justice Systems fault and that there is no evidence, whilst appearing all teary eyed on US Morning Television and across the US Media. It was just like 'Midnight Express' wasn't it Amanda.

It also should be noted that this whole case doesn't hinge on DNA as there was ample time to dispose of items, clean the scene using bleach and even stage a false break in, to try and make it look like a burglary that had gone wrong.
Although the fact remains that Knox's DNA was present and there were mixed blood traces as well as DNA her boyfriends DNA, however the most compelling evidence is Konx's own contradictions, the witnesses which dispute her account, the break in, the shopkeeper and the potential bleach and cleaning products used to try to destroy forensic evidence and numerous other such evidence.

I should also imagine he would be quite a handy person to have around following a murder, in fact here he is pictured shortly before Meredith's murder, wearing protective clothing with a bottle of bleach and a meat clever.
Police checks on his background revealed a darker side to Sollecito, who had a lifelong obsession with knives and swords, which he collected, and always carried a flick-knife in his pocket.
He described himself on an internet blog as someone who liked to try "risky things" and was sometimes "totally crazy", and he was a collector of Japanese manga comics, known for their extreme violence and rape fantasies.
Sollecito also appeared to have a taste for the macabre – he had visited the site of the Nazi concentration camp at Dachau in Germany and posted photographs on the internet of himself posing as a cross between a mummy and a mad doctor, with a meat cleaver in one hand and a bottle of bleach in the other.
