Thankfully her parents yanked her out of school and stuck her in rehab.

I think that more than anything, I am tired of the Amandas of the world being celebrated and worshipped for their less than stellar (if not, immoral) behavior. I mean people are making a bigger fuss over Amanda then those two American students who were freed from Iran. Now that is something worthy of celebration

Americans freed by Iran land in Oman - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - Iran - msnbc.com

she reminds you of your college mate..........because....she's a white girl?
You really know nothing of Amanda's personal life. Nothing.
How long have you held on to your hostility/jealousy/hatred of your college mate? Might want to see a counselor about that. No joke.

Do not take my comment statement and twist it. I never stated that I hated my former college roommate either. But Amanda reminds me of my former college room mate because she "appears" innocent but is really promiscuous, a liar who did not hesitate to accuse a Black person of her crime and is drug user. I am still friends with my other college roommates who suffered through the drama (and who also happen to be Caucasian)

Agreed.

This blog sums up my thoughts quite nicely.

Thank you Nancy Grace....

Nancy Grace calls Knox verdict a 'miscarriage of justice' - Local News - Seattle, WA - msnbc.com (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44790400/ns/local_news-seattle_wa/?GT1=43001 - broken link)

SEATTLE -- Former attorney and TV host Nancy Grace calls the murder acquittal of Amanda Knox a “huge miscarriage of justice.”
Grace made her comments to Access Hollywood following Monday night’s “Dancing with the Stars,” on which she is competing.
“I believe that while Amanda Knox did not wield the knife herself, I think that she was there, with her boyfriend, and that he did the deed, and that she egged him on. That’s what I think happened,” said Grace.
Knox claims she was not there the night of Meredith Kercher's murder in Perugia, Italy in 2007.
Grace went on to say she doesn’t blame people for wanting to believe Knox is innocent, but she claims to have more information about the case than most.
“I’d like to believe it too, I just happen to know the facts,” Grace said.
She added that she would not pay to get an interview with Knox.

If she "knows" what happened, why doesn't she dish it? I just can't imagine why Nancy Grace would clam up...ever...if she knows something. I think this prosecutor takes everything too far--hard to believe her when she seems like she has a vendetta against everyone and everything.

My prayers go out to the real victims of injustice...Meredith Kercher and her family

Knox trial judge says she may be guilty but no proof | Reuters

"They're free for not having committed the crime," Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellmann told the daily La Stampa.
"But this is the truth in court, not the real truth. And that could be different."
He told the daily Corriere della Sera: "They could have been responsible but there is no proof. Perhaps they knew what happened that night. We do not know."
Hellmann was one of an eight-member panel of lay and professional judges who on Monday acquitted Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, of the murder.
The acquittal raised more questions than answers about who committed the crime, and prosecutors have said they will appeal to reverse the verdict.

The family of Meredith Kercher said they "just trying to find the truth" about what happened to her following the release of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito earlier this week.
Speaking from the family home in Coulsdon, Surrey, Meredith's sister Stephanie said the family were behind an appeal which will now be brought by Italian prosecutors against the verdict.
She said the family, who have just returned from Perugia late on Tuesday night, needed a rest at the moment.
