I encourage Americans to boycott Italy. This second conviction of Amanda Knox is totally unwarranted. The only explanation is either an entrenched Italian judiciary bureaucracy that won't admit it was wrong or disgusting anti-Americanism. To convict a person for murder should be based on facts, don't you agree? No eyewitness, no DNA. The true murderer, in jail for the crime, had the victim's blood and DNA all over him. Where is the motive? At the first trial, the prosecutor shamefully invents some sex game gone bad (he should have been prosecuted for that). Now the prosecutor says the motive was because the victim was messy. Are you serious? The only evidence is from a shameful confession extorted by Italian police against a young naïve American woman who was hounded for hours to agree to things she at first said were untrue. We Americans know about how reliable forced confessions of young people (see the tragic documentary The Central Park Five). Doing cartwheels, looking like she is guilty, being attractive, these are no basis for convicting someone of murder. I loved visiting Florence as the cradle of where Western Civilization began. It appears the Italian legal system has reverted to the Middle Ages. (What is this having two magistrates, paid state employees, on the jury? Are they paid to support misguided prosecutors? Why was the true murdered given only a 16-year sentence? Because it was in exchange for him implicating Knox?). I say boycott Florence and all of Italy until justice is achieved.
