TuteTibiImperes: Well, she's safe in the US, he's stuck in Italy, he's just going to say whatever he can say to try to save his own ass at this point.
Great Odins Raven: Isn't there a black guy already serving the sentence for the murder?
imapirate: In this case, I think it's ok to stick it in crazy.

LordZorch: I've know several nutjob women, only one of them was a murderer...
Prey4reign: This story is so twisted, with so many people with their asses hanging loose, that we'll never know for sure what happened.
onyxruby: From everything I have read she's as crazy as all get out. That being said the idea that she got a fair trial or any kind of justice in Italy is absurd.
Satanic_Hamster: Great Odins Raven: Isn't there a black guy already serving the sentence for the murder?Yep. And you never hear the Eurodouches demanding that this poor man be freed.
kroonermanblack: I hate to be 'that guy' but who is this? And what's with the Italian justice system?
BalugaJoe: What kind of sex game do you play with a knife.
Daedalus27: TuteTibiImperes: Well, she's safe in the US, he's stuck in Italy, he's just going to say whatever he can say to try to save his own ass at this point.She may or may not be safe. Depends on how much of an issue Italy wants to make things if the conviction is ultimately upheld. Once that is done, they can request that she be extradited and then things get murky. Here is a decent article on the issues regarding extradition between the US and Italy. Some of the obvious issues we think that would be an issue may not be relevant in the procedure if a request is ultimately made, http://www.forbes.com/sites/insider/2014/02/05/extradition-italian-st y le-knock-knock-knocking-on-amanda-knoxs-door/Personally, I would be scared to death if charged with anything in Italy. Their courts are so inconsistent and wildly outrageous at times (seismologists convicted for offering an opinion and earthquakes killing people anyone). The high profile nature and European tabloids making her case much more famous than in the US may provide sufficient pressure for Italy to push the issue if the conviction is ultimately upheld. That would throw the ball in the state department and US courts to determine if we would hand her over. My gut tells me we would find a way to get out of sending Knox to Italy but that would create problems for much of Europe showing that once again the US ignores and disrespects the European system.
xria: Satanic_Hamster: Great Odins Raven: Isn't there a black guy already serving the sentence for the murder?Yep. And you never hear the Eurodouches demanding that this poor man be freed.That is probably because he actually committed the crime, rather than being another victim of a crazy Italian detective who sees satanic cult conspiracies behind every corner.
