      She spent 4 years in prison for something she didn't do and yet you are smug and arrogant enough to post a comment like that – absurd. What do you want her to do? You are a colossal idiot!

    Congrats on winning your freedom Mandy. Justice systems have become more of a contest of winning and losing than right from wrong. I'm sorry that lesson took such a piece of your life. You are not the only one, speak about justice.

    I'm so thrilled for you Amanda. It's Italy's shame, they know who they are.. At least you are back in your own country, your friend is not so lucky to leave. God bless you and your family/friends. Many many people around the world have followed you for 4 years, welcome home!

    As far as the rock star.bit goes.....blame the press. As far as the criticism of the Italian judiciary goes, one doesn't have to look abroad to see the irony in some of the foolish posts!
