Italian court convicts Amanda Knox - Europe- msnbc.com I am sure that all of you have heard, if not then this thread will inform you.. Amanda Knox was convicted.. I personally don't know much about the case, other than to say that I don't feel there was enough credible evidence to warrant a conviction.. Should our country interfere and petition for her release? Was this a product of antiamericanism? Did the Italian media destroy her chances of a fair trial and should be released on those grounds? I am curous about everyone's thoughts on this issue??
