Say what you want about the American justice system, but this case is a prime example of why Double Jeopardy is a valuable thing.

Not to mention that this is a country that jailed geologists for failing to predict an earthquake.  As much contempt I have for our own justice system, theirs is FAR worse, and demonstrably so.  No way in hell I'd extradite anyone to Italy if it were up to me.

The American people are going to take it up the pooper on everything else without lube, but WILL absolutely throw everything thing away to defend the honor of attractive murderous poonawny aka Amanda Knox, you heard it from HotWingConspiracy first.

The UK press has really whipped up a hate fest for Knox.

Is that just the tabloids or do the real new outlets agree?

He had apparently crossed over the border into Austria late last night - but returned to Italy of his own accord, Sky's Nick Pisa said.

minus one "thing"

Hahaha really, this is now funny.  Besides finding her attractive, Americans are going to finally unleash the righteous indignation, over that chick. Right.

If you're right and America loses its collective shiat over her, we'll deserve anything that comes next.

Thats just it. The Italians were hell bent on railroading these kids because they couldn't be bothered to do anything in the way of a real investigation, not to mention the Prosecutor openly stating that he couldn't prosecute an actual Italian national as it would make him look bad. The original prosecutor was so utterly convinced of his "theory" (which was a bizarre scenario based in his belief of how Americans really were from various b-grade movies and such) that he was almost eager to dismiss the actual physical evidence, and actually tried to have it suppressed in court while replacing it with some seriously outrageous conjecture on his part. He was also trying to redeem himself and regain credibility, as he had already used the scenario he prosecuted Knox with in several other trials and was under some serious scrutiny over malfeasances related to that. His entire case was circumstantial and required the physical evidence to be dismissed out of hand to believe.

The actual killer only got 7 years. They know he did it, and they went ahead and prosecuted the American anyway, because there are a lot of Italian folks who will always presume that Americans are really a bunch of Satan worshipers and homicidal sex maniacs. It made for good headlines, and the Prosecutor regained his credibility.

Read about the facts of the case.
Read about the man currently in prison for the murder and his first confessions, then his later story.
Read about the prosecution's theory of the case
Read about the prosecutor and what a crazy wing nut he is.

Then come here and tell me you think either of these people are guilty and back it up with facts.

Go on, I dare you.

Yes. The Italians will demand extradition, and we have a treaty with them. Politicians will be involved.

Are you really farking dim? Are you aware of what happened when we jailed an Indian diplomat the other day? In matters of crime, things escalate pretty quickly. Pride, prestige, and rule of law are powerful motivators.

In Italy, a prosecutor can make up whatever "theory" about the case he wants, and then manufacture evidence he needs to support it. It is legal to do that there. Napoleonic Law.

This.  That whole trial was a joke.  The crime scene was contaminated and they had no forensic proof. He should've stayed in Austria.  I know I darn sure would've.  If I was Amanda, I'd go somewhere other than Seattle and keep it quiet.

You said "crisis" which it isn't and cannot be. Now, if we started another war, that might be a crisis.

And you call "me" dim?

It's simple: if other countries won't extradite to the US because capital punishment, then we should refuse to export Amanda because FARK YOU THAT'S WHY! double jeopardy.

Tell me you've read Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston!!   If you haven't, you need to.
 
2014-01-31 10:17:59 AM  
From the BBC:
"Correspondents say that the new prosecutor in Florence, Alessandro Crini, redefined the motive of the crime. He moved away from the drug-fuelled erotic game described by his colleagues in earlier proceedings and instead contended that the outburst of violence was rooted in arguments between roommates Amanda Knox and Meredith Kercher about cleanliness - triggered by a toilet left unflushed by Rudy Guede."

Those are some great motives there. Stabbed during a kinky drug sex game to stabbed because someone didn't flush the toilet and was a dirty house mate. Makes sense. If they go for a third trial, what will be the next motive? I vote for Meredith ate the last of Amanda's oreo cookies without buying a new package.

2014-01-31 10:19:20 AM  
If Knox was a smart girl, the minute she was released after the first jail stint she would've moved to a country with no extradition treaty with the Italians. But she didn't, and chose to stay in the US where we have a strong bilateral history of extradition with them.

Stupid.

Do you actually think she's going anywhere? They will request extradition. The USA, due to our standards of justice (protection from double jeopardy) will simply deny the request. It's actually a perfectly acceptable thing to do according to the existing treaties that are in place. The end.

And then what? The great Italian-American war of 2014?

Italy is going to be all like, "she's a murderer we done proved it! Send her back!"

And 'Murica's gonna be like, "nuh uh! Ya'll are totes cray! We're keeping her, she's mine!"

And then Italy is going to be like, "that's no fair!"

Someone REALLY wants to bang her. ;)

Anyway, there's no way she didn't know of or participate in the murder, and if the accused were a male or ugly woman, no one would care.

If the killing took place inside an epically huge mansion, then maybe I would believe her bullshiat story.
