I'll definitely be reading that book. That's for sure.

I really feel for Amanda. That young woman has been through more than anyone should have to endure. It is good that people are generally leaving her alone. I hope she finds a way to deal with everything she's been through.

Good luck, Amanda.

I think you've been completely suckered by Amanda's slick PR firm. Condolences.

PS Last month, the Supreme Court upheld Amanda's conviction and 3 year jail sentence for falsely accusing her boss of rape and murder. She's a convicted liar who ruined an innocent man's life, and you wish her well?

She made a mistake, in a moment of terror. Should she have done that? No. Is it understandable that she did it? Yes.

Not one of us is perfect. She was a young woman faced with a terrible situation. She acted wrongly. But she's served her time, and more.

And I haven't been "suckered" by any PR firm. I watched and read and studied this case. I absolutely, positively believe that not only is Amanda innocent, but there's basically no evidence against her.

So, yes, I do wish her well.

As opposed to you being completely "suckered" into the Quennell, Ganong internet sweep?

Say it ain't so! Not you.......of course you could never be bamboozled into believing tabloid fodder. Never!

I don't blame her for being scared. Can't imagine how poorly managed the investigation and case was all handled, but the Italian court is still so sure Knox is guilty. Evidence contaminated, paperwork lost and even the third person whom I thought I read say HE did it, and still the court goes on.

Stop imagining things and you'll see where the prosecution is coming from.

Get the facts.

Read John Follain's book on this case.

It's amazing how people are so sure about this case, based on what--tabloid journalism?
02:34 PM on 04/19/2013
Who to believe: Amanda's PR firm or Harvard Law's most famous professor?

About 2 weeks ago, CNN quoted Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz as saying the evidence against Knox is "pretty strong" and that her conviction following the new trial is "likely".

That's terrible--I hadn't heard that. It's like shaking up a bag of blocks and hoping when they all get dumped on the floor, they'll all line up perfectly.

Your latest ploy hard at work.

How about the work of US senators who have come to her defense? Do you honestly believe they would intervene and risk their credibility if they believed there were not something in this case that indicated she had been victimized by the Italian judicial process?

US senators do not get involved with cases like these unless they are certain of a citizens innocence. They would never risk relations with an international entity over a citizen unless they had evidence of wrong doing by the officials.

Now, tell us what your professor risks in speaking up? He wouldn't perhaps be looking for notoriety now would he?

You base your support on US Senators.... politics, not anything credible. And they only concern THEY have is how it plays to their local mob and not anything else.

Senator Marie Cantwell has an ARTS degree from (tee hee) Miami U. in Ohio.

Harvard Law Professor Dershowitz has a LAW degree from YALE.

Who is in the best position to judge the evidence in this case?

A third retrial? At this point I think it's time to let this go.

Paralyzed with guilt, there is a victim here and some extremely abnormal behavior in the aftermath of the murder, including trying to frame someone, should have served a sentence just for that
01:20 PM on 04/19/2013
She did.

Why are you commenting on something you clearly don't understand?

no.

The charge was not correct, she should have served 10 years, she has ruined his life and it could have been a lot worse for him… I don’t know what your almost groupie support for her is based on, not facts that’s for sure.

Innocent until proven otherwise applies in the USA. She is not viewed so innocent worldwide.
12:13 PM on 04/19/2013
Actually, media has worked both ways. But to be clear, those who have done the research, including media outlets in England who in the beginning were reporting supposed information that led them to believe she was guilty, have changed their tune.

The world isn't convinced of her guilt.....not even the Italians are.

"Done the research"? LOL

Putting in the 'man hours', are you?

Are you a legal scholar, steeped in dusty Italian law books and English translations of all of the transcripts from the Italian proceedings? Sure you are.
05:18 PM on 04/19/2013
The Italians have to provide a US court with evidence of the crime if they want her extradited. They can actually do that right this minute. The problem is: there is no evidence that the US will or should accept.
06:35 PM on 04/19/2013
I believe she will go on her own, against advice......she strikes me as narcissistic.
06:56 PM on 04/19/2013
That's not what Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz says.

Are you a Harvard Law Prof, Jack?

Poor darling.

I guess dead-lucky narrowly-escaped convicted murderers do tend to get a bit anxious as their retrials draw near.
12:20 PM on 04/19/2013
The SC is seeking clarification. The "retrial" is not a retrial as we here in the US would believe. It is a re-examination of the appeals court proceedings and will only address the aspects that the SC indicates it is interested in.

Until the motivations report comes out, we essentially know nothing. Right now their status is in limbo, it doesn't mean the trial of the first instance stands. They are neither guilty, nor technically innocent at this moment.

Stop being rational and having actual facts on your side! That's not what this about!

She was aquitted in a trial. The Higher Court of Italy annulled the aquittal. Why do you suppose they don't ask for her extradition promptly? They (Italian authorities) are fearful and should be of entering into an American Federal Court room where they will most likely be caught in the act of perjury. Whence they will be thrown in prison. For the lame of mind extradition is not automatic. The requesting party, in this case Italy, will be required to PROVE their evidence before a Federal Judge. The "evidence" does not meet international standards and will be disregarded.

Whether she wishes to appear or not is rather up to her. If convicted, I expect Italy would seek her incarceration.

Watch her interview with Diane Sawyer...who physically nods their head yes when they are saying no. She does that when she is asked if she killed her----she verbally says no, but is nodding her heard yes. She also does the same thing when asked if she was there.... ...she does that more than once.....
