I'm British and I think the British media have done everything but brand her as a witch because the victim was British. The US media seemed to want the trial to go on forever ending with her conviction. Then they could play the victim card. Truth told, nobody is sure whether she did it unless they had a horse in the race, in which case she's either an angel or a demon in human form.

I think that's an odd position to hold. I'm also British, and apart from the "Foxy Knoxy" headlines in the first few weeks, I think the British tabloids have been incredibly, bizarrely, restrained. It's almost a non-story. Which is, considering the British tabloids, odd.

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.

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.

CleanAndPure: No evidence?

Her and boyfriend told stories to police that differed about whereabouts of the two.

She stayed hours in her apartment with victims blood all over the place... even showering without calling police.

Purchased bleach after murder. The knife that had Meredith's blood on it and hers on handle had been cleaned with bleach that day.

Was spotted arguing by people.

She knew details about the case she wouldn't have know if she wasn't there. Things the police didn't make public. Like where wounds were on the body. How did she know?

She lied and now admits lying about trying to setup an innocent man as the perpetrator claiming she was scared so made up a lie about someone else.

Keep telling yourselves there is no evidence. Do you really think the Italian justice system ThAT screwed up they would find her guilty twice.

No. I don't believe in double jeopardy... but if you look at unbiased sources instead of just American media you will see it is actually a quite clear case against her.


So are you an intern for a British or Italian tabloid?

I was there during the original trial, and in the US for the aftermath. The contrasts were stark, I can assure you. I think the US were in doubt, whereas the British tabloids were lingering over the evidence of the prosecution and dismissive of the defense's efforts. The Foxy Knoxy was also a bit odd as she was as sexy as a potato and about as intelligent.

MagicianNamedGob: MagicianNamedGob: Bungles:

She won't be extradited, but that will be because John Kerry chooses not to, rather than his hand being forced by pretending this is a double jeopardy issue.

They may instead object on the basis that she did not receive a fair trial which would be more a finger in Italy's eye and also, by the way, true. Here's an expert giving that opinion:

I predict that, even if she is convicted in absentia, there's no way that Knox will be extradited back to Italy to serve her sentence. Knox is a cause célèbre in the U.S., and her partisans will exert significant pressure on the government to deny any extradition request. Article X of
More likely is that, if Knox is convicted again, Italy won't even bother requesting her extradition. Doing so would cause a small but real international incident, something that both nations would prefer to avoid. The two countries will reach some sort of agreement, and Knox will never spend another day in an Italian jail.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/crime/2013/03/26/meredith_kercher_murder_ ca se_amanda_knox_will_never_be_extradited_to_italy.html

This part was cut out of my paste:

Article X of the current U.S. Italy extradition treaty states that the requesting nation must present a case summary that provides "a reasonable basis to believe that the person sought committed the offense for which extradition is requested." The United States will probably use this as grounds for blocking Knox's extradition.


Look - you are trying to talk sense to someone who seems to think that Italy has worked out a deal with the most powerful nation on Earth by which they can routinely ignore our requests for extradition, but we are obligated to honor theirs. This person also seems to think that under American law, that someone who has appealed a criminal conviction and won is still subject to being taken back to court on the same charges. And he keeps describing the process of Italian law as if that is relevant to whether we would extradited. And to top it off, he has informed us that when he turns out to be wrong, he will still be right because John Kerry did it because reasons - vague, unspecific  reasons.

The prosecution has already changed their theory, again. Now they say it was "an argument" that started everything.

i wonder how they work that into the man they have in prison (the drifter fellow) who admitted to the murder? Knox was arguing with kercher, then some guy dove in through the window and started raping and stabbing kercher and knox just figured she'd go with it (oh and then knox's BF also stabbed kercher a few times, because he didn't want to be the only guy there who hadn't stabbed someone?)

Exactly. Rude Guede's DNA was under Kercher's fingernails, and in her vagina. He had a history of burglary and the house had been broken into. He was caught trying to flee to Germany and was arrested days before the murder with a knife in his possession. Then he confessed to the murder and didn't name either Knox or Sollecito as accomplices. But we are expected to believe that actually all three of them murdered Kercher together, and then Knox and Sollecito cheerfully stuck around while their accomplice fled the country? And why wouldn't Guede name his accomplices if he was going to confess? Or are we supposed to believe that Guede broke into the wrong house and then decided to fark a corpse and scratch himself with her fingernails?
