Boojum2k: phrawgh: Until Amanda Knox is extradited, mail for American soldiers in Italy is being held hostage!http://www.stripes.com/news/italy-begins-charging-taxes-and-duties-o n- us-military-mail-1.264743Close the bases, bring them home. That way Italy isn't incurring those expenses that are suddenly requiring a tax.
karmaceutical: They may be corrupt or crazy... but at least they can get a conviction. What would have happened if OJ, Casey Anthony, or ZImmerman were tried in Italy? A lot less clicks for Fark, that's what.
incendi: Wasn't it an Italian court that convicted some scientists for not predicting an earthquake, or something silly along those lines?
Rapmaster2000: Well, let's be honest, you're likely an upper-middle class, educated person with educated friends
rico567: you think the U.S. media is batstink crazy, check out the Italian papers sometime. We returned from a month in Campania a few weeks ago, and so far, this place appears normal to me.
Slaxl: Rapmaster2000: If you want to amuse yourself, or perhaps be concerned, check out the comments regarding this on British tabloids. America is basically a land of violent criminals who are also rich and arrogant and you can never trust them to tell the truth and they think they run the whole planet and no real Brit would ever visit such a horrible place. It gives you a window into why no amount of evidence (or lack thereof) will change the mind of some people. Someone has to pay for the death of one of their own, and if you're convinced about the way "those people" are it's pretty easy to assume she did it./not accusing every British person of being like thisNonsense, I've never seen or heard anything like that, except in Youtube comments. While I don't read tabloids, and I suggest you stop, I don't know a single person who thinks Knox did it, and pretty much everyone is supportive of her and thinks the Italian system is wrong.It would sadden me if I was in the minority.

Gecko Gingrich: Doktor_Zhivago: If a US appeals court declares you get a new trial during your appeals process you get a new trial. There's not really a difference here.Yes. *You* can appeal your guilty verdict. *The Government* cannot appeal your innocent verdict.
