I was torn as to where to post this thread. It was either here or Politics. I chose here. If the mod team feels it's better in Politics (for that's certainly a big part of what it is...) I invite them to move it. Amanda Knox; In my view her trial (and yesterday's convicition) in Peruggia is an utter travesty of justice. My heart aches for the torment caused her family by her conviction in a murder in which she clearly had no part. Much as I love Italy, much of what goes on there from a legal point of view and an ethical one is purely medieval.
