    Great to see that the justice system is not only terrible in Canada, but also in other parts of the world(Sarcastic). Like can you believe these people. You take the life an innocent person who trusted you with that life and come short with an idea to murder. Cry at the trial to show for how sorry and innocent you are as well. Soft judges and jurors.

    Whats your take and don't worry I'd rather and 'honest' opinion on it this time.

      Like with Casey Anthony, I wasn't there, I don't know what they did or did not find, I don't know what happened. So I can't make an educated decision about it. I just am already sick of hearing about it all...

    For me, insufficient evidence to convict does it for me. The evidence has to be there to condemn someone to punishment for murder. She may have been doing some other things wrong, I don't know, but that doesn't mean she should pay for a murder where there is insufficient evidence to prove it, IMHO.

      (Clarify)But didn't they state that they had a confession tape from her as well as DNA finger printing(barely) on the knife as well. I mean she's out as well as her boyfriend which is really the reason as to why I feel asking the question 'why is the justice system so shakey.

    I dont know whether she was guilty or not but do think the justice system has a lot to answer for.   I think the problem here is that the police and prosecuter decided she was guilty because of her behaviour ater the  murder and  tried to build a case around their theory instead of thoroughly investigating all scenarios even though the DNA evidence was flimsy and flawed - you would expect her prints to be on things, she lived there after all and it begs the question why she was found guilty in the first place- did the Italian Authorities just want a quick result?

    Unless new evidence comes to light or a witness steps forward I guess we will never fully know the truth, if she is innocent then she has spent 4 years in jail for something she did not do - in another country she could have lost her life.

    In all this there is a poor girl who was viciously murdered and for that family I have the utmost sympathy as the matter for them is still unresolved.

    This whole case is not so much about her as it is consequences for our actions in life. The  most troubling messege in this case:  The fact that once again the infatuations of uncontrolled and altered behaviors of immature mentality  are not a factor in accountability!  Poor Amanda , she was only "partying" in a world of mind altered behavior  ! I feel so bad for anyone of whom suffers  when a murder breaks up a good party !  Maybe she didn't " do it " , but she sure did do it! Know what I mean Verne!

    I am not aware of the evidence or non-evidence in the Knox case. All the media clips show that she is innocent and Italians rushed to judgement; it seems biased, yes.
    Is the justice system fair when a recent news tells of a woman who sliced up her husband and cooked him (on Thanskgiving) wants to be out on parole?  I just think why is she even alive from our tax dollars? A judge let her be punished on 2nd degree murder. why not 1st degree?

    I don't think she did it, so I'm happy she's back home and safe.

    Wow. My apologies. I looked over her case again and found something ironic I'd normally catch in an instant. The evidence presented was inaccurate or insufficient. I just want to say I that I don't even no anymore and I'll leave at that.
