What type of person "makes out" with her boyfriend at the crime scene, a murder crime scene? What a tramp.

Amanda Knox is a filthy, murdering wh--- and its too bad that the Italian government didn't properly handle the crime scene because she should be spending the rest of her life behind bars.
No offense, but are you serious? This is why you think she is guilty? Really? Man but your world must be black and white.....

What kind of a person accuses another? Well, for starters, one that is under extreme duress and pressure...especially if one is young, foreign and scared....and under the jurisdiction of a known dirty prosecutor.....

Making out? How about just being affectionate---when I am sad and scared, I often will lean into my husband and kiss him. That hardly makes a person guilty.

So what I have so far is....a scared girl who kissed her boyfriend. Oh yeah, let's prosecute her!!! Bring out the pitch forks!!!!!

Have you actually taken the time to read all the details of the case? It would have taken a very sick, disturbed and violent individual to do what was done to her---and there would have been all kinds of physical evidence. The only evidence that stood as indisputable was the semen from the drifter and his blood and feces. There was no evidence that any of them knew each other---or cooperated nor did Knox or Sollecito have any prior history of violence.

The prosecutor is dirty--plain and simple--and the italian culture did not understand the nuances of the carefee culture in the Pac Northwest.

I read the following today from an old NYTimes:

"One explanation comes from Douglas Preston, a prominent best-selling American author who lived in the Florentine hills while researching a book about a serial killer never found, “The Monster of Florence,” co-authored by Italian journalist Mario Spezi.

After the serial murders stopped, a prosecutor decided to reopen the case. His theory was that the killer or killers were Satanists from an ancient cult that harvested body parts. That prosecutor is the same one in the Knox case – Giuliano Mignini.

“One day I’m walking down the streets of Florence when my cell phone rings,” said Preston in an interview. “They say, ‘This is the police – we’re coming to get you.’” For three hours, the author was interrogated by Mignini about possible connections to the case. His phone calls with co-author Spezi had been wiretapped, and Mignini asked him to explain things. Preston said he was told he must confess to perjury or obstruction of justice.

“I’m not the kind of person who could be broken down,” said Preston. “But now I’m terrified. My wife and kids are out having lunch, and I’m thinking I’m never going to see them again.”

Preston is indicted – Mignini has that power – but then told he can go free if he leaves Italy. The author departs the next day, banished, humiliated and deeply troubled.

Fast forward to the Amanda Knox interrogations. She’s 20, hardly a world sophisticate, who spoke only passable Italian at the time. Mignini used the same methods – a pattern now coming to light in the misconduct case against him, in which he is accused by a Florentine judge of intimidation and wiretapping journalists and other perceived enemies. He has denied any misconduct. When Preston looked at the case against Amanda Knox, he saw a rogue prosecutor and a miscarriage of justice.

“There was no evidence,” he said. “I realized it was all bogus. Mignini believes that Satan walks the land and anyone who is against him must be working for the other side.”

So glad both those kids are free!!! At least she gets to come home--where people know her and have stood by her. That poor kid Sollecito is stuck there.....

The only reason that her case even received any amount of attention is because she is a young, White American woman (whom some consider attractive). Its the exact same thing when young White woman goes missing.

Missing white woman syndrome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CNN.com - Anderson Cooper 360 Blog

'Missing White Woman Syndrome' Still A Bias For Southern California Media? - Los Angeles News - The Informer

The people who are "relieved" that sweet little murderess Amanda Knox is being freed need to take a good look at why they are so sympathetic to her cause and not others who are in the exact same/similar situation.
I guess this is what I truly don't understand.....

What facts--what actual probably facts--make you think they killed her?

Well, you just convinced me of her guilt. Hang the broad high.

Bravo!! A most excellent post. Mignini is the equivalent of a modern day Hitler! He is evil!

I am so happy that they are free.
My husband cannot believe my interest in the case (it's not big in the news here)
But I HATE injustice of all kinds.
I hope Amanda makes back all the money her parents had to spend since this tragedy occurred.
I am looking forward, very much, to hearing from Amanda herself.
