Does the "guilty" verdict today in the Amanda Knox trial make you wonder still?
About whether-or-not she really did have anything to do with the murder of Meredith?

Anybody that believes she's guilty, needs to read the book, "Murder In Italy" written by an impartial party, reporting every fact step by step, day by day. I too, thought she was guilty.
But, after reading the entire story and time lines of the cast of characters, I don't see how anyone could believe she was involved. Especially after learning how corrupt the Italian justice system is.Source(s): Opinion

The guilty verdict only proves how stupid the Italians are.

No, not at all.
Americans, (which I am one)........seem to be under some bizarre notion that she was ever declared "Innocent".
That NEVER occured.
What happned was...........her original conviction was APPEALED................by Italian law, it's AUTOMATIC.
In that appeal, it was decided that there was *enough* reason, to hold the trial again,...and some questions were not fully explored or answered in the first trial.
She was therefore RELEASED from Prison, pending the NEW TRIAL.....since, the new trial was ordered, and you don't keep people in jail before a verdict is reached.
She served no amount of unfair time in jail, since she *WAS* convicted of framing the bar owner, and got a seperate 4 years for that alone. And THAT charge WAS upheld at her first appeal. There was also a slander charge after that..........which is why her sentence was increased this time.
There has been no "double jeopardy"..........because it's the SAME trial.........just going thru the endless appeals process.
Think of it, as a murderer on Death row for 20 years........exhausting all their appeals.
Except, in this case......political pressure of having the poor baby in some nasty Italian jail was applied.......and they came up with a ruling that effectively granted her freedom.........while saying the appeals process must continue. It was a window of opportunity for her to FLEE.........and FLEE she did. She ran back to the United States and wrote books about her "innocence"
But right after she fled............the same court system reviewed the RULING that let her out of jail, pending the new trial, and found it be without any legal merit whatsoever.
In other words............a back door political deal was made.......they let her go..........and then quickly reversed the decision that let her go.
That brings us to the new trial.....and re-examination of the facts, and not surprisingly, she was found as guilty as the first time.
She has the SAME AUTOMATIC RIGHT.....to appeal *THIS* decision now to Italy's highest court.....and if found guilty THERE..........then that's the end of the line.
Then , extradiction requests should be made and kept.
anyone remotely familiar with the facts of the case.......knows they are guilty and lied their azzes off.
Her act fools no one.......except people who read the "Injustice in Perugia" website........which is like getting your facts about 9-11 off some Truther website.
She's been solidly found guilty TWICE now.......using the same evidence.
Her stories and alibi's and whining, didn't add up to a pile of spit.Source(s): American living in Italy for 17 years now......and I have followed this case from day one.

I am certain she played a major part in the murder of that poor girl in a drug-fuelled sexual assault that got out of hand.
Americans just can't believe a white middle-class girl can be involved in murder.
