Boycott Italy/Amanda Knox
I agree that we should boycott Italy if the Italian Supreme Court upholds the verdict. It is apparent that the Italian judicial system here is interested not in justice but only if redeeming its credibility (which it has still failed miserably). To convict for murder beyond a reasonable doubt, one would like to have strong evidence of two out of three of the following: Eyewitness testimony; physical evidence, including DNA; and motive. NONE of that is present here in any credible fashion. The motive is the most laughable aspect. First it was a fiendish sex game; that was dropped this time around and now the motive is that Knox was upset at Meredith for keeping an untidy apartment. Seriously? The real killer who has admitted to killing Meredith and who had the victim's blood and DNA all over him is in jail. Is it really beyond a reasonable doubt that Knox and her boyfriend teamed up to kill Knox with a drifter with a prior record of breaking into homes? I don't think so. I loved visiting Florence as the birthplace of modern western civilization. But it would appear its courts have not moved beyond the conviction of Galileo. And what is this having two paid magistrates serving on the jury; were they there to influence the jury to support their prosecution pals?

I will NEVER EVER support Italy - EVER
I have followed the TRAVESTY of the Amanda Knox trial - as well as a couple other tidbits of the Italian Legal System over the last 4 years.

I am horrified, that this country espouses to be intelligent, civilized and upholds human rights. I see NOTHING in your country that does these things. The TRAVESTY of the Knox affair has been beyond belief. I see NO justice. I see NO INTELLIGENCE or LOGIC. You are from the middle ages.

As a voter in the United States, I will not support anything Italian in the future. As a tourist, that has visited 55 countries in the world so far, I intend to boycott ANYTHING Italian in the future. I will be happy if the U. S. A. were to cut all ties with your pathetic "kingdom" and your Banga-Banga ex premier, and your corruption from top to bottom.

Be GONE from this earth. I don't want to HEAR of you again - ever.

amanda knox
amanda may or may not have been invloved in a murder. but trashing italy because of the arrest and trial an process makes her look less innocent, and only makes arriving at the truth more difficult, and will certainly help a cloud of whether or not the truth was actually found hang over her head even after a final verdict is reached. if you want to help amanda knox, trashing another country only works toward achieving the opposite.

Amanda Knox
I am so disgusted with the Italian legal system. Try Amanda Knox again? Haven't you done enough to her and her family? You have ruined her family financially. Amanda seems suicidal. You don't seem to believe in science, i.e. DNA. What is this new trial about? Is there money involved? Do the Italian people and press like to persecute people and get a "big" story? I am coming to Europe this fall with my husband. I will not come to Italy now or ever until you rectify this situation. If Amanda Knox dies due to your relentless persecution of her, I'm sure Americans will make you pay the price.

Injustice 2
As part of a democratic government and western civilization, I feel it is appalling the way Amanda Knox was treated while in prison, the horrific evidence handling, and the mental abuse she endured.
I hope and pray for other Convicted criminals in Italy, they are treated more fairly and humane.
Italy and its people owe Ananda an apology as well as retribution.
I hope for change and peace.
