Should Amanda Knox get extradited?
- BethLv 67 years agoFavorite Answer
Given that she was found innocent before, PLUS there is no evidence against her, she was coerced into signing a document that she could not even read, and they already have the real murderer in jail, I would say no. Trying her again without new evidence is double jeopardy, and it is against the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. government has a duty to protect the rights of its citizens. Italy sounds more and more like a dysfunctional country where only bribery is respected.

Yes. She has been convicted of murder. There was no double jeopardy and the only 'facts' we hear on the case are the ones drip fed by American media. If the USA say no then expect the whole EU to halt any further extraditions there until she is sent over.

Notice again in the rant above (posted numerous times around YA) that there's NO evidence that Amanda had anything to do with the murder. Much like the "trials" in Italy, NO evidence just emotional hysteria. Bottom line, don't travel to Italy unless you buy "phoney prosecution" insurance first.

They should send Amanda Bynes just to confuse them.

I have no idea if she is guilty or innocent, BUT she is a US Citizen and the United States has a DUTY to protect her rights as a US Citizen and double jeopardy is against our Constitution..

In America we have the 5th amendment.
You can't be tried for the same crime twice
So when another country takes a US citizen and keeps putting her on trial until they get the result they like, is absurd.
Basically it depends on whether or not the US wants to grant her her 5th amendment right while traveling abroad.

yes she should. She committed a crime in Italy and should have to face justice. If guilty, I would support the death penalty for her.

anyone even remotely familiar with the case, is aware of the numerous lies they both told police.
Why would innocent people, who had NOTHING to do with the murder, tell so many LIES?????????
Their explanations are pure rubbish and they've had 7 years to work out their BS stories.
The US should absolutely extradite here. We have legal treaties.............she's been given EVERY consideration....and even NOW, **still** has one final appeal left.
If after that appeal, the conviction is again upheld..........then there's no more questions.
She can cry all she wants.............NO ONE *wants* to go to prison..........but she should have thought of that, before she lied to police, framed innocent men, and murdered her roommate.
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, due to procedural errors and questions over evidence handling, to throw the first conviction out , and she was *released*. There were also some questions that were not fully explored or answered in the first trial.
She was NOT declared "Innocent", as she likes to claim on Tv,...
She was RELEASED from Prison, on legal technicalities.
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 legal and appeals process. She wasn't found "innocent" and then, "oh on second thought, ,let's try her again". She was found GUILTY........and then found legal loopholes to get off the hook.
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. 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, 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. At that point, her legal stauts was RETURNED to "Provisionally Guilty"-----but, too late.....she had already FLED. Then, based on all this shifty manuevering, and the ILLEGALITY of her RELEASE........ordered a new trial to be held, if the first was technically ruled a mistrial......
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.
That's Guilty x 2.
Provisionally Guilty -1
Acquitted on legal loopholes -1 .....if anyone is keeping score.-
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.
3 strikes and you're out.
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.
WAHHHHHHHHHHH! I don't ***want**** to go to jail over the murder I lied repeatedly about, is not really much of a legal defense.
That's too bad, Buttercup......should have thought of that before you framed innocent men, and lied to police, investigating the Death of your "good friend", .....REPEATEDLY.
