Did the Italian government just want to frame an innocent american?
I have a hard time understanding how people can want to accept the first decision by the italian court but then completely dismiss the follow-up action by the court as being some sort of "racist" thing?

Additionally, prosecutorial misconduct is not strictly an Italian thing....look at the DA in the Duke Lacrosse scandal whom got disbarred for his actions.

This case is an ink-blot test for people with an axe to grind.

who are you referring to with the name calling? Melodramatic nuts?
Hmmm...................go re-read your own posts.

I actually think she probably killed the other girl, but without a video or DNA evidence, how can you put someone in jail? The jury made the right decision. Too bad they don't always do the same in the US. Circumstantial evidence is not enough to say someone is "guilty."

I think the worst thing Amanda did (you know besides the murder) was falsely accuse another person. Luckily he had an alibi or HE would be in jail for life. It still boggles my mind that another human being could be so evil. I was taught not to lie as a child, but after living in the "REAL world" for a while, I see that people lie all the time.

Simply for lying and putting an innocent person's life in jeopardy, she deserves to spend as much time in prison as she wanted to inflict on an innocent person. If she didn't kill anyone...then why try to incriminate an innocent person? Anyway, God will judge her, so I believe she's not getting off scott-free if she really was involved.

If she's a crazy killer then she'll probably strike again...and be put in jail after another life's taken. At any rate, she dodged a bullet this time.

Italian lawyer calls US student Knox a 'she-devil' (http://www.volunteertv.com/international/headlines/Italian_lawyer_calls_US_student_Knox_a_she-devil_130565518.html - broken link)

I totally hope she isn't also a racist, but falsely accusing an innocent black dude? Why??

Luckily for Diya "Patrick" Lumumba, he didn't end up on death row or spending the rest of his life in prison. We don't all get second chances in life, so I hope Amanda uses her second chance to be a better person.

How is that interesting? It's an entirely different country with an entirely different judicial make up.

Even if they prosecution does appeal, { which I believe I heard they are going to or already have } The likelyhood of the US sending her back to Italy is slim to none.

His DNA was in the room. He robbed Kercher. He sexually assaulted Kercher. He fled the country. He already has a criminal record. Yet all we hear in the media is Knox and the (flimsy) evidence against her.
Let's not forget that he has been connected in cases with similar evidence as the Kercher case as well.

And she is guilty, she has played the media and won. She was acquitted because of all the media attention this case got.

To see certain women, and some men, appear giddy that she is set free only shows me the mental and emotional shortcomings that are rife within American society.

On what evidence are you basing your statements?

If, after the appeal, the prosecution "loses", Italy does have a double jeopardy law that will apply.

They are basing their evidence on their anger over the Casey Anthony verdict Now they think everyone has to pay

I think what the person found interesting is that the prosecution had the ability to appeal at all.

I noticed that myself. It's very frustrating. I even asked, either on this thread or the other, are we going to accuse all people found innocent/acquitted of being the next Casey Anthony? All I heard was crickets. No response.

All I know is that I wouldn't want to be sitting on trial in this country for a long while after the whole CA fiasco

{ or ever for that matter, but you know what I mean }

Um, it's interesting because it's a completely different concept to the US system.

Really? Italy is a different country from the US? lol.
