Why should we violate American constitutional rights against double jeopardy to bail out some incompetents in the Italian court system. Whether or not she is guilty, the Italians had their chance and fumbled the ball.

I am appalled that Amanda had to face trial again after being acquitted As a US citizen I think we should abide by our law of double jeopardy and protect her. I wish we could bring her ex boyfriend here too.

I bet if the victim was American and the killer from some middle eastern country and the USA was looking to get the man back to answer for his crime in court we will be barking at a differs tree

Pathetic article written by a clueless moron. She was not tried in the US but in Italy. The US doesn’t get to veto an extradition. If they try then they can forget ever extraditing anyone back here again.. She is toast.

No one in america seems to care about the victim. All they can see is that the white america is crying tv so she must be innocent. No one cares about the mountain of evidence. America will in fact have to extradite her because Italy is not part of the usa and has different laws … The us government wants to get snowden back for leaking information about illegal spying but they won’t extradite someone for murder I don’t think so…if only the media in america cared about the real story

That’s simply not true. I feel terrible for the victim and her family. But why condemn innocent people (Knox AND Sollecito)? That’s ruining the lives of three families. I see no convincing evidence that anyone other than Guede was involved in the murder. I believe the Italian prosecutor was corrupt and should not have been on the case to begin with.

All the evidence they had point at her and her ex boyfriend…. This is Italy not some lawless third world country. Why nobody here speaks about the victim and her family? They are the real victim! This horrible woman even made millions of dollar in interview and book book deals! If I am the mother of the victim I will personally drag her to prison!

She always goes on and about the lack of evidence, more then saying she is innocent…. Always with those cold and calculating eyes.
The family of the victim also think she is guilty…

Oh well, if we’re convicting people on the basis of the eyes the absobloominlutely – she must be guilty. What an utterly fatuous comment!

Cold and calculating eyes is not evidence. The lack of Knox’s DNA, at an especially violent crime scene, makes her involvement impossible. There is DNA of one person all over the room. Even a scientist with a microscope cannot selectively clean up one person’s DNA, while leaving the rest. It is not possible. The family of the victim (whose father is a tabloid writer) is represented by a lawyer/friend of the prosecutor. Selective and incorrect information has been released to the tabloids from the beginning of the case. In addition, Knox herself has repeatedly reminded people of the real victim. However, does sending innocent people to jail serve the victim’s memory? People in the US are very sympathetic to the Kercher family. However, we have seen innocent people exonerated time and time again. People here are less likely to believe “cold eyes” evidence, and pictures taken out of context, as indicative of guilt.
