The black guy got 30 years.

you think? I heard it was pretty sketchy. I want to believe she's innocent, but I'm not sure.

Wow. What a surprising response.



You do understand Italy's judicial system isn't?

It appears there was no evidence of any fingerprints from Knox at the crime scene. I guess they were doing drugs and having sex with gloves on. The BF showed zero emotion when convicted to 25 years, 1 year less than Knox. They apparently get 3 appeals.

The Black man who was convicted did not act alone.

Amanda's behavior following the murder was very bizarre and seemed uncaring to many observers(the kissing with her boyfriend at the murder scene, the buying lingerie in an upscale boutique after the murder)

I have no problem with the verdict.

Also, didn't she write in her diary about planning a drug-induced orgy with the victim? I read it somewhere a while ago...it might have been on the victim's, Meredith Kercher, website.

With all the drugs she was taking it may have given her some kind of amnesia after the act. Either that or she is a cunning liar. Or she may have not been involved at all. I just don't know.

I read a long article about the case and it sounded like the evidence was overwhelming.

Knox is guilty & should be happy that she didn't get a life sentence for murder.

ditto. if she is innocent of this murder and this was all some big mistake, she really needs some sort of evaluation, b/c some of her reported behaviors, if true, shows a complete lack of emotion, almost to a sociopathic level. she definitely incriminated herself w/ her questionable behavior after the murder. if she is innocent, she really screwed herself over w/ her antics

All the foreign students I knew in college studied hard and would never party and do drugs with their parents' money. Not only am I ambivalent of Knox's character, but she seems very cold and distant in her demeanor right after the murder. The American media is blasting the verdict but it may just be a case of "NO! Not OUR little girl!"
