    Nothing silly about stating the truth. Their hatred of America and Americans is so widespread and deep, they are willing to obsess about the Knox case to the extent that they're willing to ignore things like double jeopardy and a judicial system that is considered a joke even in Europe in order to gain a petty little triumph.

    Dude, that's not merely stretching the truth. It's snapping it over your knee and tossing it out the window.

    Don't we all have enough enemies at home without looking beyond our shores to invent some?

    How convincing. Witch! Burn her!
    The witch trial comparison is particularly apt considering the words used by the prosecutor.

    Asking for a life sentence with nine months' isolation, Mignini said "La Knox" wanted a sex "game" and used her feminine wiles to manipulate two besotted young men
    "Probably she would have insulted Meredith," Mignini said, reconstructing the event with representatives of the U.S. embassy seated silently a few feet behind the defense table. "And she probably said, 'You are always behaving like a little saint. Now we will show you, and now we will make you have sex!'"
    WTF?

    Elaborating the saint-sinner theme later, an Italian civil lawyer arguing for millions in damages against the American called Knox a "Luciferina ... dirty in her soul," who is "beautiful in her looks but also sly and intelligent.
    Without knowing the setting and just hearing all of that, you'd think you were listening to run of the mill chatter during a Salem witch trial than a modern court.

    I know. An absolute disgrace. Along with an engraved apology and pecuniary restitution awarded to Miss Knox, I'd further move for signor Mignini's disbarment.

    A total joke.

    My personal fascination with the Knox story stems from how much it backs up the author's experiences with Italy's legal system in the The Monster of Florence. "Medieval" as a description is more spot-on than you can know.

    lulz

    Mistakes will be made. Italy's far from unique in that regard.
