Anderson Cooper Thinks There's No Way Amanda Knox Is Going Back To Italy!

anderson cooper amanda knox italy trial murder extradition not happening

We agree! We don't really see Amanda Knox going back to Italy, even with an extradition order.

Amanda was acquitted of the 2007 stabbing murder in October 2011 and just recently started having a normal life again in Seattle — she was moving on and even got a new boyfriend. It's so strange that this is surfacing yet again, but on the other hand our legal system here works differently than the one in Italy. It might not make sense to us like it does to them or something!

Here's what Anderson said:

"Right, well, her original trial was overturned by an appeals court, and I guess now this new court has decided the appeals court didn't have the proper authorization to rule the way they did, so it goes back to the appeals court. The question is, will she actually return to Italy, and I don't think there is any way she is ever going to go back to Italy. She doesn't have to. She could be possibly, if convicted, they could request extradition, but the U.S. could be like, 'We are not happy with the way the whole system played out so we are not going to extradite her back.' I think she is fine; she's going to have to fight it from here. If I was her, I would be like, 'I am not going back at all, I'm not even going to the Olive Garden.'"

LOLz!!!

Yeah, we agree with Anderson whole-heartedly here. We don't really see us complying with the extradition just for a new trial, especially such a high-profile one that absolved her in the end. It seems like a waste of time and money on Italy's part, too!

We're shocked that she's not being left alone, and we can totally understand when she says the new ruling was "painful" and "completely unfounded and unfair." If there's no shocking new evidence, then what's the point?

It's just bizarre to us they don't have a double jeopardy system in place to keep such wastes from happening!

    LOLz yeah, screw the laws in other countries. Knox's trial was crap, but saying blow off other countries? Seriously?

    I believe she did it… and therefore she should be sent back for retrial. Just because our country has the double jeopardy law doesn't mean for her to hid here. She committed the crime there in Italy so she should follow the laws of Italy!

    Wasn't Pumpkin Head Mario bad mouthing her through the whole trial and after she was set free.

    She murdered her college roommate after sexually humiliating her. Why does AC think she's fit to be lurking around campuses in the US?

    If' she's found guilty, send her dirty ass back to prison.

    Re: She did it! – Then why don't you kidnap her and bring her yourself to Italy. They'll give you a big fat reward.

    Re: She did it!

    There is no proof whatsoever but tons of proof the guy who was found guilty did it. You BELIEVE she did it? Since when is faith a factor? Shouldn't it all be about facts, proof and evidence?

    Re: Mark – It should be about the Italian judicial system. You're in no position to assume her innocence either. I find it such a double standard, it would be viewed as outrageous if a country didn't agree to a US extradition request yet people here seem to think that the US always has the right to choose whether or not they follow requests from other countries based on the constitution. People relinquish there right to the constitution when they travel abroad.

    The US won't send her back. You can't be charged for the same time twice here, well for the same thing and event. So there is no way the US will send her back. The Italian police did a poor job and now they just want to try to place the blame around. She'll never leave the US again.



  9. 9

    Re: She did it! – Yes, but the US would have to agree. They won't because of the laws here. What makes you so certain she did it? No one knows and the evidence was a mess.

    For those of you saying, "she did it" , you need to educate yourselves. They tried and convicted the man who confessed to killing meredith, so no amanda did not kill her. As for her involvement, the details of that might be fishy, but keep in mind, that she has already served 4 years over there. And the methods they used to extract infomation from her were COMPLETELY inethical including, lying to her that she was HIV positive and that they needed the names of everyone she had slept with. Combine that with the fact that she has been tried over there 4 times now, and its rediculous! Her and her family have been through enough both emotional, and finacially. Leave her alone!

    Re: FreeAmanda – bravo. Agree with you , I hate how they trash her if they don't even know her or what happen. The Italian system are shady



  12. 12

    she 100% did it. i do believe she is reformed now and would never kill again. i think she was on a lot of drugs. therefore i think she should be punished for another 20 years. people like anderson cooper think awww she is so pretty and she is in college… too bad!

    Since when was she acquitted?! She was convicted and got off on a technicality!!! Bloody hell no wonder the people in the states are clueless when this is the media reporting they get.. dick head.

    Let's just send them Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias and call it a day!



  15. 15

    If there is another trial and she is to be found guilty, then US court officials should examine the trial and if there are no mistakes found: extradite her.

    Double jeopardy laws only apply if it is a final ruling from the highest court. Amanda has NOT had a final ruling yet, so the rules would not apply.

    i wish people would stop treating her like a victim, the victim here is Meredith and if a re-trial brings out more information on what happened to her then thats good. i personally think she had something to do with it she may not have been the ring leader but she had a role and i hope that justice is served i dont think she deserves all the support she gets but the US protect there own whether they are a murderer or not.

    Re: hjshjs – There's no way to know that she's reformed. You can't keep a person like that down. Eventually, she'll get involved in another criminal affair. Look at OJ and the Preppy Killer. Criminals are criminals. They can't help it. I understand that her family is loyal and wants to protect her, but they're really doing a disservice to her next victim, not to mention poor Meredith Kercher's family!

    SEND HER EVIL LOOKING SELF BACK TO ITALY !!!!!! PPL IN SEATTLE DON'T EVEN WANT HER THERE… SHE DID IT AND GOT AWAY WITH IT…. I PRAY THERE ARE MORE ANSWERS AND JUSTICE FOR MEREDITH… LOCK HER UP WHERE SHE BELONGS!!!!!!

    There is a ton of evidence indicating Amanda Knox's likely involvement in the brutal and senseless murder of Meredith Kercher. Please visit truejustice.org to learn the facts of the case.

    By the way, Knox is not being "harassed." The appeal that overturned her conviction was found to have been judgment pertains to the technical (procedural) aspects of the trial, not the merit (facts). The judge struck down the sentence of the Appeal court by acknowledging that relevant evidence was not allowed in court.

    The same thing can happen in the United States. This is not the same as double jeopardy.

    By the way, Italy is known for being highly pro-defendant. And the incarceration rate in Italy is approximately one seventh (yes, SEVENTH) of what it is in the United States. And lest you be convince that her trial was due to anti-American sentiment, she was convicted along with her Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.

    Anyone who thinks that an abundant of Sollecito's DNA floated on a speck of dust and landed with laser-like precision on the exact part of Meredith's bra clasp that was bent out of shape during the attack on her instantly deserves a Darwin Award. Ditto for anyone who thinks there is an innocent explanation for the pack of lies that Knox and Sollecito told.
