Good luck with getting her to come back to Italy.
 
2014-01-30 05:06:56 PM
And yet Americans all think she is innocent because an American would never do anything wrong overseas.

Seriously American media has been extremely biased in this case... backing the murderess.
 
2014-01-30 05:07:11 PM
I'm sure she'll be booking that flight to Rome right now.

This one doesn't even link to the Amanda Knox case.
 
2014-01-30 05:08:45 PM
I'd stab her forty times if you know what I mean.

/and I think you do
 
2014-01-30 05:08:55 PM
I swear I just read that the prosecution did absolutely nothing to change their case this time around, even though their Supreme Court told them to fark off.

If Knox's lawyers appeal it, hopefully when it gets to them this time, they choose to take the prosecution's legal briefs with them to the bathroom, just to save the toilet paper.

No. Americans believe that double jeopardy is wrong, and that if you try someone enough times and get enough do-overs the state will finally make it's case.

Pretty sure the US has extradition treaty with Italy, so she would have to leave US to flee justice.

2014-01-30 05:09:47 PM
The Italian justice system seems, from an outside observer's viewpoint, to be not only completely incompetent and capricious, but deeply corrupt.

Clearly you haven't paid much attention at all. I'd go in to expansive detail on why this is not only a gross miscarriage of justice but I'm close to clocking out for the day.

Really, there wasn't 1 piece of empirical evidence that could reliably link Amanda Knox to the murder.

/Evidence was she had a fingerprint on a knife she owned in her apartment
//AFAIK wasn't even the murder weapon.

ChrisDe: Good luck with getting her to come back to Italy.


I like how the article makes it clear (a couple times) that she doesn't plan on going back.  Is there really anybody reading the article who thinks "OMG, now she has to go back to Italy and go to prison!"

Assuming she really is innocent...I think I'd just kick back and enjoy life as a "wanted murderer in Italy".  Might as well own it.  Of course, I'd be wary of ever traveling out of the country.  Not sure I'd ever trust any other country to NOT pack me up and send me to Italy.
 
2014-01-30 05:10:35 PM
Does anyone other than the Italians, actually think that the Italian justice system didn't horribly botch the hell out of the entire case?
 
2014-01-30 05:10:36 PM
so.....go fish ??
 
2014-01-30 05:10:56 PM
What a farce. Though the person I feel really bad for here is Sollecito -- he's an Italian citizen and can't get away, whereas it'll be a cold day in hell before Knox is extradited. So he's going back to the slammer just so the Italian justice system doesn't have to admit how much they farked up the initial investigation. At this rate, the actual murderer is going to be out in a year or two, whereas Knox and Sollecito are going to be pursued by this for the rest of their natural lives.

I realize there is a difference of opinion from overseas, but I don't get it. This isn't an OJ style case where there is definitive motive. I'd say there is legit reasonable doubt from the details I've heard, and she'd have to be quite the psychopath to have done what they claim. I simply find that unlikely.

I do agree that double jeopardy is wrong too. Even during her first trial though media in US was painting her as this innocent saint.

She shouldn't have been retried because of double jeopardy... but she's as guilty as OJ and got off the first time for the same type of reasons.

No, Americans believe that DNA evidence is pretty much the same the wide world over, and even Americans overseas are not immune to leaving DNA evidence behind if they stab someone to death. Or do they believe that Americans can levitate and magically erase DNA where you come from?

It seems there is some leeway on that one. Italy will not allow someone to be sent here if they face the death penalty for example, and the US may take umbrage at the double jeopardy in this case.

I still want to know how the cops came to think there was a drug fueled orgy involved. Methinks this sounds like projection of someone's deepest wishes.

It was confirmed to not be the murder weapon. The murder weapon has never been found or presented in the case, as I understand it.

No, staying the US is her best option, but she can probably never leave. The US is not likely to extradite her simply because she was previously acquitted and to do so would violate our own principles of not allowing double jeopardy. Then you combine that with the extremely weak and mishandled evidence in the case and she's going to be ok staying here.

Is the US obligated to honor every extradition request though?  Particular in the case of a double-jeopardy conviction that would not be accepted in the US?
 
2014-01-30 05:14:54 PM
Here's the link to the story.  I haven't a clue whether she did it or not.  Is that like reasonable doubt?

Can't tell if you're trolling or not, but there's literally no evidence tending to show that she was involved in the killing that doesn't have a much more likely and mundane explanation.

/Not to mention that there's a completely unrelated person (whose guilt is beyond doubt) already convicted of the crime.
 
2014-01-30 05:15:08 PM
Didn't the "evidence" in this case come down to "someone said she once heard Knox say something bad about the victim" and also she didn't "act right" after the homicide; so clearly she's a depraved killer?

The entire prosecution smacked of early 80s Memphis.

2014-01-30 05:16:00 PM
in a capital crime Italy will need to present the evidence and prove that Knox is guilty.  Amanda's lawyers will be able to keep this in the appeals court for decades.

The state of Texas would have already executed her, but the Federal Government will have to look at this and the relevant laws.  The only way she is going back to Italy is if she waves her rights to appeal.

Maybe the not-guilty opinions have something to do with the almost complete lack of evidence, or the fact that the original trial was laced with theories about satanic/Freemason ritual sex abuse.

Or Americans are just assholes. Let's go with that.

She was tried by the Italian (and English) tabloids.

Well, according to CleanandPure she had sex multiple times with the murder weapon and then sang the American National Anthem over the victim's decomposing corpse while instagramming the whole thing.
 
2014-01-30 05:18:17 PM
Lock her ass up with the seismologists who failed to predict an earthquake. Italian justice obviously knows better than any experts.

Yeah except that unlike the OJ trial, the cops already had the crack-head rapist who actually committed the crime in jail

I think it is more a complete lack of evidence.

And that the real murderer is already in prison for the crime.
