    The Italian prosecutor has threatened to appeal the Amanda Knox appeal and re appeal for another trial...:cuckoo: Question, do you think the US will extradite her back to Italy given that we have a "double jeopardy" clause and she is now back on US soil?

    No I dont think we will extradite her. I don't think we should either. Just tell her "You can never go back to italy or else you will face prosecution"

    If they have better evidence, I'd be fine with her getting sent back. Our legal system is neither here nor there. It is an Italian crime, it is their legal system that matters. They are not some whackjob regime. There is no reason for her not to face trial again.... if that is their decision.

    I disagree. That would be the third trial. She has been acquitted. With your theory this could go on the rest of her life. She's in America now. And we don't believe in double jeopardy.

    It does not matter what we 'believe' in. What matters is the law. I don't know that much about the Italian justice system but, it would seem to err on the side of caution. The problem is that you use emotion instead of logic on the issue. It is never wise to form an opinion based on emotion.

    Logically, it is more likely that she is guilty than innocent. I don't support anyone getting away with murder.

    No. If the Judges decide to retrial her then she will be tried in absentia. If found guilty and she stays in this country there will probably be no extradition.

    It would not be double jeopardy because the appeal process/trial was flawed and therefore a continuation of the original trial.

    I read up on the case. Take out the hyperbolic emotional crap and just look at the evidence. It does not look good for her. But, it's their legal system, and they chose to free her. It is what it is.

    And if the victim had been American, and the perp was Italian, and the Italians said they wouldn't send that person back.... there would be an outcry about it. Just because she's American does not make her innocent.
