Okay, here we go. My subtext today is pissing off European Italians, so if you think this might offend you, go away now!
Once again the Italian justice system has shown how screwed up it is by convicting Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito of the murder of Meredith Kercher for a second time, after being found innocent in-between! I’m not sure what political agenda is involved in this other than Europeans, specifically Italian Europeans, who see this as a way to once again bash Americans. What sort of pastafazoole is it that keeps retrying a person already found innocent? Is the Italian criminal justice system as faulty as their government?
Anyone who has followed this nightmare knows that the Italians already have the murderer in jail. There are so many detailed descriptions of how the murder actually went down and how non-existent the evidence against Knox and her then boyfriend is (plus the lack of any motive). The Italian justice system tried to portray Knox and her boyfriend as some sort of drug crazed maniacs. Look at the videos from the crime scene, do those look like hung-over drug crazed maniacs?
Now the Italians are trying to extradite Amanda from the US. If the United States buys into this spaghetti farce it will simply go to show once again that the US justice system is just as messed up as the Italian justice system is. Besides, when have we ever listened to foreigners, especially ones that don’t live here, much less let them tell us what to do.
I’m sure that most Italians also think this whole thing is a load of ravioli stuffing but the lawyers, judges, and politicians involved with this thing, plus anyone who is just in this as an American hater, isn’t fit to even be a spaghetti bender.
