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.
Nancy Grace also blatantly stated that the Duke lacrosse players were guilty of gang rape but you were probably thanking her again.

This is all I need to know about her credibility. "Competing on Dancing with the Stars." Every two-bit fame-starved hack has been on that show already.

Wonder if Amanda Knox is thinking of finishing college now.

Probably isn't interested in another study-abroad program.

Your opinion only. A lot of very nice people have competed on DWTS.

This season there is a severely burned war vet competing......do you consider him a two-bit-fame-starved hack?

I doubt she wants to leave the Sacred Soil of the USA. The news last night said she has invited Raffaele Sollecito to Seattle for a visit.

Kind of like those hikers that were finally released from Iran ... I bet they don't hike in that area again.

Foreign countries justice system and prison accommodations are not like the good old USofA (except that prison in Norway.)

Its been my general impression that most western prisons offer better conditions to the imates than the USA. Rehabilitiation over punishment etc. Possibly excepting some mediterranean coutries. It is once you get out of the First World conditions suddenly drop like a rock.

Every post of yours is a gem, dude.

Amanda Knox had the audacity to be born white, I'm with A_Lexus, toss her in jail and let's teach her a lesson!

Also, her trial occurred in Italy, I'm pretty sure the Italians (96% of whom are white) probably aren't as hung up on race as you are. If Italy's justice system is like ours, the burden of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt, not "ehhh, she's an entitled white b****, let's toss her in jail."
I can't take anyone seriously who uses the term "dude." The rest of your points aren't worth considering.

The problem in this country is racism as practiced by a segment of whites. Focus on that brand of racism, one that has been pervasive and ever-present for centuries. As I stated before, these are the same people who protested when Knox was convicted assuming that she was innocent without knowing the full extent of the evidence. These are the same people who declared OJ guilty before they heard one bit of evidence. Understand the issue before you get unglued.

Default Knox will always be suspect

She remains a suspect in my book and others agree. Supporters continue to put the blinders on.

Oh brother. I don't have blinders on. I have not seen ONE post offering any CONCRETE evidence that AK murdered MK on this or the other thread. Lots of conjecture, made up motives and fiction, yes. Cold hard facts? Not so much.

I often find when one personally attacks the speech of others, they cannot debate the substance of the posts.

MANY people, including me, KNOW the extent of the evidence. I still think she is innocent of murder.

Now, you tell me, on what evidence are you basing your opinions?

I've asked this several times of the people on this board who are SO SURE AK is guilty. Crickets, every time.
