      Sigh. Another troll. You're probably not even black.

      Anyway, what about the black guy who actually committed THIS murder and only got 10 YEARS ?

      Get over yourself you moron. Your comments just go to show how ignorant you are. It's people like you who bring racism up in every scenario that make people hate more and more. What does racism have anything to do with this woman's release? Get a life and stop trying to pity yourself. It's very unbecoming.

      Whether that's true or not, the solution isn't to keep innocent white people in jail. The solution is to get or keep innocent black people *out* of jail.

    Whoever compares Amanda Knox to Casey Anthony is very uneducated about the situation and you probably aren't considered too funny or well-liked in your little circle of friends. Justice has been served and an American is coming back home to us.

    I'm so happy for Amanda Knox that her Italian Nighmare is finally over. My heart goes out to her, I have been riveted by this story & injustice. The brave girl, who gave such an impassioned speech in Italian must have had some effect on jurors. She can now finally, be free and live a full life. If she decides to write a book on her ordeal, I will be first to buy it. Go live your life Amanda I'm so very pleased for you. This date will be remembered 3 Oct '11 ( my birthday & the day Amanda is Free )

    I have read her version of events in Rolling Stone issue 1134/1135. Having read everything I could find and watched every news broadcast on CNN & BBC. I can honestly say the Italian Police made a complete mess of her conviction and the case was justifiably thrown out. Amanda's council should now sue the Italian Police for her incasiration of 4 long years in Prison.
