Amanda Knox Released From Jail

The news of Amanda Knox being released from jail hit the television and computer screens of millions of people on Monday October 3, 2011. Knox was found guilty in 2009 of murdering her roommate Meridith Kercher, whom was found dead in an apartment they shared back in 2006.

It has almost been 5 years of life behind bars for Knox, for a crime that she did not even commit... Or did she? The crowd outside of the courthouse had their own opinions and were chanting "vergogna, vergogna" which means "shame, shame" in English. This tells me the people did not agree with the decision to release Knox and her ex-boyfriend (Raffaele Sollecito) from jail.

Did She Get Away With Murder?

Personally, I think that she is innocent after what my wife tells me, well at least she told me she watched the Lifetime movie about this and that's what she thought. The family of Kercher and other locals seem to disagree though, and this could cause major conflict between people in the next couple of weeks to follow this event.

What if it were your child that was brutally murdered, and the people you thought committed the crime were only locked away 3 years before being let go. All of a sudden these people are out of jail and free to roam, this has to be an unsettling feeling. 

Prosecutors Right To Appeal The Acquittal 

There is some type of loophole in the Italian government that still allows for a chance that the prosecutors could appeal the courts decision to let Knox and Sollecito free. There is a very small time frame for this decision to be made, and if i had to guess they will try taking advantage of this loophole.

Amanda Knox's lawyers argued to the judge that the DNA evidence used in the original trial was mishandled and it should have never been used in the trial. He also argued Knox's innocence and pointed out the fact that there was no motive for her to kill her roommate. The prosecutors described the murder as a sex game gone violent.

Whatever the outcome is in the next couple of weeks, it should be interesting to see how the media covers everything and whether or not the people of Italy will have their voice heard. Stories like this used to go unheard of in the news, but it seems lately that a lot of innocent people have become a victim of our court systems.

If you would like to see Amanda Knox released from jail on video, or just keep up with the Amana Knox latest news then I recommend that you stay tuned in the coming days because there should be no lack of media coverage on this story.
