    Should Amanda Knox Be Extradited to Prison in Italy?

    We've all heard the story; I'm sure I don't need to fill you in.

    American student Amanda Knox has, after appeal, been convicted of the murder of a British student in Italy along with her Italian boyfriend.

    Amanda Knox has been with her family in Seattle during the trial, but now Italy is going to make an extradition request and put Knox in prison for the murder.

    What are your thoughts on the subject?

    Tell Italy to stick their extradition request where the light don't shine and if Italy makes any attempt to grab the girl, send in a kill team to waste any Italian involved in such activity

    No. Considering the Double Jeopardy issue she should not be extradited to Italy. However, if she leaves the US and is arrested elsewhere on the warrant she should not get US assistance.

    This whole issue shows why no intelligent American ever leaves thus country to begin with.

    Legally speaking, she's innocent, as she was found innocent by a court of law. Now, that may not be the case in Italy, but we have a no double-jeopardy policy in the US. In general, we should not be extraditing our citizens for things that our country doesn't consider crimes.

    For those that think she should be extradited, should a foreign government that has acquitted an American citizen have the right to call that person back for the rest of their life? Maybe show up 20 years from now and decide to reopen the case and demand extradition?

    America stricktly refuses most extraditions into any country in the world and Europe refuses most of extraditions into the US

    So either way, before specific cases can be debated, a common understanding would have to be found by both regions.

    And that is not likely to happen.

    From what I understand, Canada will not extradite someone back to the US if they face the
    Death penalty, because it violates their laws.
    Allowing Italy to extradite Amanda Knox would violate our laws against Double Jeopardy.

    Re: Should Amanda Knox Be Extradited to Prison in Italy?

    I'm not a legal expert, and I'm not that familiar with all the details of the case. But in general, I think the US shouldn't allow a US citizen to be extradited if they wouldn't do jail time for the same crime here in the US. Whether because what they were convicted for isn't illegal here, or because they process they were convicted under is very different from our own legal process.

    Re: Should Amanda Knox Be Extradited to Prison in Italy?

    No she shouldn't and it isn't because I think she is innocent or guilty, but rather because we have double jeopardy. Countries like Canada and some European countries will not extradite people to the States because of the death penalty implication for crimes. Why should we have to ignore a constitutional right like double jeopardy, when other countries do not ignore their laws?
