Cold_Sassy: I guess they don't have double Jeopardy laws in Italy.

Well, fark them.  I would hide her somewhere.


They probably didn't phrase the acquittal in the form of a question.

Love the logic here by the DA - "The DNA didn't match, so lets re-try her and see if we have enough to convict without it."  You know, it might be a good idea to find out who's DNA does match what they found, you know, because they might be the real killer.

Who in the hell will ever date this chick?  There's probably dudes that would fark her, but there's no way they'd ever fall asleep beside her.  She's basically on the same date-ability level as Joran van der Sloot and Casey Anthony.  Imagine that dating game line-up.  "All right contestant A, if you were an ice cube, where would you like to travel?"  "Well, Chuck, first I'd fashion a garrote from a tweed cord and a paintbrush handle.  Then, when that's good an tight, I'd put a Winnie The Pooh sticker over her mouth to muffle the rape sounds.  Then, as I was having a third orgasm, I'd use the filet knife I stole from Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville to slice her throat from ear to ear, OJ style, my personal hero."  "Where's the ice cube in all of this?"  "Oh, I almost forgot, I'd pound the ice cube into her eye socket with my fist to get her good and horny."  "Great answer.  Contestant B?"

TwistedFark: The common thread here - no citation of a motive, a witness, even placing Knox at the time of the crime scene, a murder weapon, or any other physical evidence. However she was "acting odd" at least, according to british tabloids, hence you're not convinced she's innocent.

Arthur Jumbles: GungFu: miss diminutive: I completely missed this case the first time around, but was there actually any evidence against her or was it simply a case of local authorities needing to pin it on someone and she was simply a suspect by virtue of living in the house?

Yeah, that's how Americans see it.

Everyone else sees somehow who lied, accused an innocent man and has generally shown to be a bit of a coont.

[i.telegraph.co.uk image 460x288]

Isn't this man, Rudy Guede, already in jail for raping and murdering Kercher?


Well he should definitely spend some time behind bars for forever ruining the beret with his giant fivehead.

She didn't give the guy's name to the prosecutors, only after it was suggested to her after several days of interrogation and abuse (or, I'm sorry, slapping her on the head to 'help her remember' was the interrogator's official line) did they coerce her into agreeing with their then-false theory that this guy did it...

If being a bit of a coont is proof of murder in Italy, you're Ted farking Bundy.

She had one. She is now free. You do not get to acquit and put an asterisk next to it unless you are a corrupt piece of crap.

But the hype in Italy was dead on balls accurate?

Thunderpipes: ace in your face: I don't think the US would ever agree, especially since (fark lawyers chime in?) it would be illegal to retry her within our legal system.

Probably the key point here. US can refuse, especially if the country's court system is too harsh and different.

Besides, the EU is never real happy to extradite people back to us. Screw em.


We'll trade her for Roman Polanski

The Italian judicial system is a piece of shiat. Same for France.

The American system is not perfect, but I'd rather be wrongly charged of a crime here than in Italy or France.

I'd rather not be wrongly charged of a crime anywhere... just sayin.

Also, I found this pic of a workstation in an Italian forensics lab...

Fark me, you are retarded. No wonder people think she's entirely innocent. Retard thinking does that, I suppose.

I'm retarded for expecting investigators to determine the veracity of an accusation, especially one given while under duress, more rapidly and intelligently than taking two farking weeks.  Good to know.

Prick.

Oh Hai, Yanks! My name is Patrick Lumumba.
Your Innocent Pretty White American Girl Abroad, Amanda Knox, accused me of killing Meredith Kircher.
I spent two weeks in jail because of her baseless accusation.

As I said before, Knox is a coont.


Well, she did spend like 3 years in jail for a crime she probably didn't commit.  Does that make you feel any better?

FarkinNortherner: I'm deeply puzzled why there's not only a belief the US won't extradite her but that this is a good thing.

The US has a far from unblemished record in locking up and, indeed, executing innocent people, but I suspect most Americans would want a person who faced a murder charge in the US to be extradited from Italy, irrespective of the view of the case held by the Italian populace and/or its media.


Somewhere out there, behind a locked door in a room without windows, somebody is contemplating how they can use Amanda Knox as a bargaining chip for Julian Assange.

Thank you, spot on.  There's no doubting the Italian justice system is idiotic, but it's in pretty good company there worldwide, and that, or being an American abroad, doesn't automatically make Knox innocent.  That young woman's behaviour has been odd in the extreme from immediately after her arrest onwards, and certainly suspicious enough to warrant her arrest and a trial, which of course will now never be fair or just unless accidentally.  If the trial was about being a coont, she's be found guilty in a few minutes.

As for those Farkers saying EU extradition rights over US citizens is unfair, that's laughable in the extreme - quite the opposite is true.  The US have FAR more power to extradite EU citizens to the US, unfairly so.  Try reading up on Gary McKinnon as just one example and the disgraceful amount of time and effort spent trying to extradite him, or Christohper Tappin, who thought he was exporting car batteries to the Netherlands only to find out they were batteries for 25-year-old missiles in Iran (which might not even still exist), was extradited and told he could either plead guilty and get 33 months in prison, or stand trial and perhaps get 30 years.  But the EU have almost no power in extraditing US citizens to stand trial.

Some poor sod was brutualy murdered, and I'm not convinced she's innocent just because the legal system is guilty of being stupid.


The common thread here - no citation of a motive, a witness, even placing Knox at the time of the crime scene, a murder weapon, or any other physical evidence. However she was "acting odd" at least, according to british tabloids, hence you're not convinced she's innocent.

One would almost say, that without the biased circumstantial reporting, there would be absolutely nothing to cause one to think she is anything BUT innocent. Indeed, the moment that they put hands on Rudy Guede, who's semen was inside Meridith, who's bloody handprint was at the crime scene and who confessed to being at the crime scene, a reasonable person would have expected the case to be closed.

But no, Amanda Knox did a handstand (or so they say) while being held at the police station for better part of a day. SO VERY VERY SUSPECT.

Frankly, you sound like a retarded 9/11 truther.

It's fascinating of the Italian's proclivity for believing in a "brutal sex game gone wrong". I'd laugh but we Americans believe that in every shadow lurks a child molester. Interesting cultural comparison.

Wicked Chinchilla:Out of curiosity: was the first theory that Knox did it based on anything aside from: "Gee, they lived together, she probably killer her then right?  I mean, roommates kill eachother all the time, it seems perfectly reasonable"?

She acted inappropriately in the police station when the cops kept them waiting to be interviewed for hours; practicing handstands, necking and giggling with her boyfriend.  (Not all at the same time obviousely).
Oh and she'd had sex with boys and smoked marijuana. Shocking I know, British and Italian students are souls of propriety.

No, they got the guy. He was basically a stranger, broke into the house, raped/killed the girl, left his DNA and fingerprints everywhere.

The first theory was Knox did it, evidence came to light that she didn't (fingerprints and DNA), and they made up stuff to keep her involved. (furry satanic sex orgy..no seriously)
