I don’t blame her.

I don’t know if she is guilty or not but it doesn’t seem fair.

I don't blame her, but she should just keep her mouth shut.

Eric Holder is a racist who would be more than happy to extradite her, and would got to great lengths to do it.

What will happen to her ex boyfriend if he is convicted?

I doubt the US would extradite her for a conviction which violates US double-jeopardy principles.

Double jeopardy is not in Eric Holder's vocabulary.

If she doesn’t have an attorney that specializes in international law.. she should. I am sure if she did have one.. he would tell her to shut up and NOT talk to an Italian newspaper. Sheesh....

You will be on the government protected list and most likely be represented by Eric ‘the RED’ Holder himself

Yes, only one person. It would make a difference if, say, four were dead. Oh, wait...

I blame the parents of Meredith; they were pushing for Amanda to be retried despite the lack of legitimate evidence and they have lashed out at Amanda for writing a book, for speaking about it, for accepting money (despite the fact that she has to pay off major legal fees). They just won’t let Meredith rest in peace and let Amanda, who is innocent, get on with her life.

Who knows; the real killer who was identified through DNA is in jail and will be for a long time. I’m disgusted at how low the Italian justice system has sunk and I think Meredith’s parents need serious psychotherapy.

When the lead prosecutor came out with his "devil-worship" angle, with absolutely no evidence of devil-worship in Amanda's background, he lost all credibility.

They want Amanda to be dead and Meredith to be alive and since that can’t happen, the next best thing (for them) is to punish Amanda forever by blaming her.

Amanda, shut your mouth and don’t give interviews especially to Italian papers.

They just don’t get it that their daughter was also running around enjoying the nightlife as well and wasn’t exactly Snow White herself. These people need serious help.

Why should she shut up? She has a right to speak out and certainly she has every right to be frustrated and angry at how she’s being prevented from moving on in her life.

Why should she shut up?

Did you bother to read the article that you posted???

A representative for Knox had to step in to save her from her own statements to the newspaper.

That's when you shut up unless you are too stupid to do it.

I don’t blame her either.....even though I never though she was the sweet saintly girl some wanted to portray her as....to me, she seemed like a spoiled rich girl who got the freedom and the cash to wander around Europe instead of working like many college age students....

Is Amanda Knox WHITE, or BLACK.

Because if Amanda Knox is white, Eric Holder will extradite her and throw in a few extra charges, to boot.

If Amanda Knox is BLACK, Eric Holder will instruct Obama to train nuclear missiles on Italy.

How was Amanda connected? Amanda was her roommate, but that doesn’t mean that Amanda killed her or had anything to do with it.

She’s making it clear that if she is ordered to come to Italy, that she will avoid going there if she can since she is after all, innocent and is for some sick reason being punished.

She has every right to make it clear where she stands and this is brave of her.

If it was so brave of her then why did her representative have to step in and “clarify” what she said.

Maybe Italy should focus on the African transient with blood all over his hands and leave Amanda Knox alone. Just a suggestion.

Yeah they should.

If they had less African transients then I believe that they would have a lot less murders.

Likely because her rep is paranoid; Amanda is just being reactive and I don’t blame her for saying incendiary stuff.

The Italian prosecutor, Giuliano Mignini, is an absolute corrupt nut job who should be in jail himself. Read The Monster of Florence. It will give you a lot of background on how corrupt and whacky the Italian criminal justice system is. Amanda Knox was/is a naive kookie west coast college kid who acted weird at times and got sucked into the madness of the Perugian justice system. The bottom line is that they did not find her DNA in the room where the murder took place, yet Rudy Guede’s DNA was all over the room. Mignini tried to say that she was able to clean her and her boyfriend’s DNA up, but left Guede’s behind! Yeah right, these college kids cleaned up there magic DNA, but left his behind. What a joke!!

When you are out on bail as she essentially is you don’t say incendiary stuff like I’m going to run because that is often taken by the courts to be a threat to them, and a sign of guilt, and a reason for the revocation of bail.

Her representative here was probably her lawyer who she and you should listen to.

Yet double jeopardy is unconstitutional and the Italian courts have no right to end up trying to convict her this time around.

To me, that is the whole point, not her comments.
