AMANDA Knox and Raffaele Sollecito did murder British student Meredith Kercher, in Perugia, Italy. Today an appeals court in Florence upheld the convictions of U.S. student Knox and her ex-boyfriend for the November 2007 murder of her British roommate. Knox was sentenced to 28 1/2 years in prison, raising the specter of a long legal battle over her extradition. After nearly 12 hours of deliberation Thursday the court reinstated the guilty verdict first handed down against Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in 2009.

He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Is that it, then? No. Knox is in the US. Will she be extradited? And both she and Sollecito can appeal before Italy’s Supreme Court.

Writing above reads in Italian "The Law is Equal for All."

John Swain notes :

This painfully slow legal process has now lasted longer than the Second World War – it was seven years ago, in 2007, that Knox and Sollecito were arrested and jailed on suspicion of murdering Meredith Kercher.

In that time, Knox has become a global media talking point. Take a look at today’s newspaper headlines.

The Times: “Knox guilty of Meredith murder again”

The Sun:  “Knox is guilty”

EVen when Sollecito is mentioned, he plays third fiddle to Knox’s sex appeal:

 

foxy

Never mind the dead women, get a load of the ‘foxy’ babe.

 

Meredith Kercher

 

As BBC  said :  “What fascinated us most of all was the beautiful young murderess, and what was really going behind her smile.”

Rudy Guede, a man also convicted of raping and murdering Kercher, is not much talked about. Sollecito is presented as an afterthought. All eyes are on Knox, the young woman who never sobbed or broke down; who turned cartwheels and smooched her boyfriend in the aftermath of a sickening crime. She was,  as the prosecution said,  “a diabolical, Satanic, demonic she-devil.”

The men were not demons. Only her.

This case was never simply about the facts or motive which was what? This was about Knox’s character. One media expert who had never met Knox wrote:

“Knox’s narcissistic pleasure at catching the eye of the media and her apparent nonchalant attitude during most of the proceedings show the signs of a psychopathic personality. Her behaviour is hauntingly reminiscent of Eichmann’s arrogance during his trial for war crimes in Jerusalem in 1961 and most recently of Karadzic’s preening before the International Criminal Court at The Hague.”

The two men if we keep the them of Nazi Devil woman alive- were merely obeying orders.

Knox has released the following statement:

 First and foremost it must be recognized that there is no consolation for the Kercher family. Their grief over Meredith’s terrible murder will follow them forever. They deserve respect and support.

I am frightened and saddened by this unjust verdict. Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system.
