Exactly. Look what happened to Beth Twitty in Aruba. Can't expect American Justice in another country.

Since this crime happened I've felt she was involved in the murder. What a waste of a young life. All over a guy, in my opinion.

One of the pundits on CNN is saying that the prosecution brought in stuff about her sex life that had nothing to do with the crime. I think she was saying that would never happen in an American court. BS, that stuff happens everyday. Personal lives are used to show character flaws.

Yeah but his DNA was ALL over the room. Amanda's was on a knife that was not proven to be the murder weapon.

I wasn't talking about her trial as much as I was addressing the point that bringing character flaws into American trials is commonplace. JMO

When I was that age I was really immature, but if I had found my roommate murdered, and was being taken into custody--and in another country, no less--I would not have been doing cartwheels. Maybe the drugs have affected her brain (and Sollecito's, too).

I guess I should not pass judgment either since I haven't read every single detail of the case, but it sure seems like something is missing in those two.
