I remember a thread about Amanda Knox last year, with heated discussion among members as to her guilt or innocence. I remember some posters claiming they could 'see' the guilt in her eyes. Italy's highest court has just acquitted Knox of the murder charges, and hopefully this is the last time Know will have to deal with this.

www.vice.com...



Ending a legal saga that went on for eight years and captivated the world's attention, Italy's highest court on Friday overturned the guilty conviction of Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito in the murder of 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher.

The decision to throw out all charges against Knox and Sollecito was met with "gasps" in the courthouse, the New York Times reported. Last year's guilty conviction was the second issued by Italian courts after Knox and Sollecito were cleared of an original one in 2011, and was widely expected to be upheld. (The Associated Press reports that a total exoneration like this one is "unusual" for Italy's highest court.)

I read this a few days ago. This has still ruined her life. YEARS of her life are gone. She can't get them back.

That response doesn't make sense to me. The way this farce of justice happened can be reviewed. Having someone pay for a crime is not the same as solving a crime.

I find it sad that a woman died. I also find it sad the way this just dragged on and on and ruined others lives. Don't forget there was originally a language barrier.

Unfortunately the only people who will ever know the truth are poor Meredith (RIP) and her murderer(s). A tragic story for all concerned. Whether Knox is guilty or not it will forever hang like a shadow over her life. But the courts have decided and life must move on. Speculation at this time is pointless and will never bring back the life that was stolen no matter what.

She is innocent, so why is this even a fair comparison?

Knox has been declared innocent.

So Meredith Kercher's does not bare relevance in this.


You cant just throw a innocent person in prison and call it "justice".

This. Yes.

Prosecutors had what, four shots at getting it right? And the highest court in the land decided they didn't.

Law is law.

The jury is the best system we got.

So is innocent until proven guilty.

Without them what?

here is where most people who argue the evidence hang up on. her prints being on everything. If you live with 2 other people your prints will be everywhere and i mean everywhere. Apparently the evidence presented was lacking and she was found not guilty. SO Since she is not guilty the case should be closed and we all should act like it never happenned if we were being fair.

Her life is already gone. She has already been tried in the court of public opinion and enough people have decided that she's guilty that no matter what any court has declared, she will never have a fair shake at anything in her life again. There are plenty of other people in similar circumstance some of the them are perhaps truly guilty and some of them are perhaps truly innocent, but when people make up their minds, it won't matter.

He was. And then lost a civil trial. Perhaps that's next for Knox?

For me, in both cases, the prosecution had their chance/chances to get the verdict they wanted. If somebody considers it a travesty of justice, look no further than the prosecutor's table.

She should sue Italy for defamation of character since she is innocent.

"Not guilty" and "innocent" aren't always the same thing.

Only time she shed a tear is when she was convicted then released, she's never shed a tear when talking about Meredith, though she does try...

It shoudnt be though. Since they were not convicted it stands to reason they are innocent of the actions or being found not guilty dont mean jack.

I don't like Amanda Knox. She is (still) and always has been utterly disrespectful towards Meredith 's family and her being murdered. She is a bad person inside, period, even if she did not kill anybody.

She does have the same eyes like most of sociopaths like Jimmy Saville have...just sayin.

Being found not guilty means plenty. It means a person can't be held culpable for a crime. And that prosecution couldn't prove beyond a reasonable doubt they had committed said crime, ergo there was at least some degree of doubt about the person's guilt.

In theory, the court doesn't care whether a person did or didn't commit a crime, they care whether the prosecutor can prove it.

In theory, anyway.

Foxy Knoxy is a stone cold killer. Ice water runs in her veins. She could run for office. Clinton/Knox '16!
