Really only the third one is odd.  Lots of people let the police lead them to say things that are not true.  When I was a kid I got in trouble for shoplifting with my friends.  The police were trying to get me to say all kinds of things for hours telling me they knew it was my friends responsible for some string of shoplifting.  I kept my cool and never said anything because there was nothing to say, but one of my friends was tricked into saying all sorts of things that were not true, including accusing her own brother of something he didn't do.  The police can be intimidating if you do not grow up in a family of lawyers.

Yes, but that does not blanket "all".
Her lies could be questioned, but we should not totally throw them out.

Never believe she or her boyfiend really did it, all though they were there and were to out on drugs to realize what was going on. The guy that was with her room mate (the victim) said he had sex with her and went to the bathroon and came back and she was dead and is in prison for her murder.

Knox lied. Sollecito lied. Like I said, no-one who believes in her 'innocence' bothers to reply.

I think Meredith Kercher's family would like some of those questions answered.

Before Knox's book about how badly she's been treated hits ebay.

What a surprise. Knox has signed a $4 mill bookdeal, after meeting with 'several' publishing companies.

I quote: HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said Knox, who studied creative writing, would work with a collaborator.

If you read any of her online diaries you'd agree that she studied creative writing. Among other creative activities.

Amanda Knox. Class act.

I wonder if Patrick Lumumba will see any of that money?

I'm so glad that justice was finally done by the Italian justice system.

Had she been caught up in the US justice system, she would still be in prison serving out some "mandatory minimum" sentence imposed by the criminals in congress.

I heard somewhere that an appeal has been filed by the prosecution and that this case will be heard again within the next year or two.

Hopefully this time around they don't make the same mistakes as the appeals court did.

I actually watched this all happen in the courtroom before she got acquitted.
And the curious thing being the fact that I was rooting for Ms Knox.
I don't know what it was exactly but maybe It could be her doe-eyed,innocent expression.
I just couldn't imagine an All-American girl committing murder.
The irony being the fact I plumb forgot about the victim even though she's a fellow Brit.
She could well be guilty for all I know but my heart went right to her on that night.

I believe she is/was innocent and so was her boyfriend.I don't believe they ever killed meredith kercher as there was no evidence that they did.
and the police were corrupt and messed up.
I think that the black chap, which name escapes me killed meredith kercher and that the other 2 were innocent. I also think the black chap probably killed her with some unknown people.

Remember how you once pointed out that I said I first had to refresh my memory on a couple of cases...you said I always had to do that? Ha-ha! Well, I'd have to do that here with this case, but I remember at the time- after her and her boyfriend were imprisoned and having learned of the evidence- being of the belief that they both were innocent. I remember her behavior was strange in an instance or two, but even then, I think it was misinterpreted, and I think her boyfriend acknowledges and points out both of those things, but anyway, it was clear to me that her and her boyfriend were innocent, so needless to say, I'm glad they're finally out of prison.

http://www.cnn.com/2...book/index.html

Sollecito and Knox had been dating for only 8 or 9 days...he described intense pressure from police to throw Amanda under the bus...they "used anything to push me into the corner". There was also pressure for members of his own family.
Sollecito spent 6 months in solitary confinement.
Despite that it was "unbearable...I had all of the world against me"...he stood by the truth.
"For me, they were just offering me another death. So for me, basically, the choice was I'll be the rest of my life in prison- which is almost a death; and on the other plate, were throwing Amanda under the bus- which is also a death, because I can not walk around on the street just realizing that I'm the reason why an innocent girl of 20 years old being put in jail for the rest of her life."

regi, if Knox and Sollecito had been tried in a US court and a by the book police and CSI investigation had been conducted, they'd both be convicted criminals. In prison.

Oh come on, Antilles. I understand your position, but regardless of evidence in a case- or if every aspect of an investigation is considered without flaw- you still can't say for sure that there will be a conviction.

Of course, it's my position that if the investigation HAD been without flaw, then the whole fiasco would have never happened, and we likely would have never even heard of the victim, much less, Knox and Sollecito.

Well now, you agree with me regi! :D  Let me ask you this and I know you'll give me an honest answer. You always do.  If there was such a thing as a scale for innocence, with 1 being guilty and 10 being innocent, where would you honestly place her? Just for the sake of argument.

I watched clips from her original trial and my gut instincts said guilty, it was written all over her face.

I think before cases are overthrown a lie detector test or CCT Scan must also take place.
