Nancy Grace on Amanda Knox Verdict: Casey Anthony Redux!

by at . Comments

Nancy Grace doesn't hold back.

The news pundit and Dancing With the Stars competitor was not among the many people lauding the Amanda Knox verdict yesterday. Grace's thoughts on Knox's conviction (in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher) being overturned?

"I think that it was a miscarriage of justice," she said.

Amanda Knox, Nancy Grace

Nancy Grace does not hold back when it comes to her favorite cash cows.

"I only hope Ms. Knox makes something of her life because she's certainly been given a second chance. Very few people are given the chance she has been given."

Knox, a University of Washington student who had been studying in Perugia, Italy, faced a sentence of 26 years in prison after being convicted of murder in 2009.

Yesterday, an appeals court overturned the 24-year-old's conviction.

Grace did not directly link the Amanda Knox trial to that of another infamous case in which a young woman, Casey Anthony, was controversially cleared of murder.

She didn't have to. Grace famously said "the devil is dancing tonight" upon the release of Anthony, who she ripped frequently and derisively referred to as "Tot Mom."

There are some parallels between the women, but unlike the Casey Anthony case, wasn't Knox cleared, at least in part, because of an independent review of DNA evidence? Which made the case against her less incriminating?

What do you think? Is Nancy on point? Off base? Running her yap for ratings? Should she just stick to Dancing With the Stars nipple slips and call it a day?

You tell us: Amanda Knox is ...

Every prosecutor or former ones that I have ever met always think everyone is guilty no matter what the evidence may say. Grace is no excedption. Nancy Grace is no expert in Italian law or Italy's criminal procedures. Their court ruled that Amanda Knox is not guilty. Thats the way the system works whether Nancy Grace likes it or not. Grace is only interesteed in these types of cases because she wants to exploit them for money and will haunt the Knox family till she makes cash, no matter what effect it may have upon others. In my book,Nancy Grace is a media whore and a parasite.

It doesnt matter what any of us think really happened theyve been proved "NOT GUILTY" (nobody said innocent) but what happened to " innocent until proven guilty"? ... Theyre being treated like theyre guilty when theyve been tried convicted and proven NOT GUILTY everyone just needs to get over it and move on so these girls can do the same ... Pretty funny how nancy grace has been slamming the system she stands for ... WTF is wrong with people?

I watched a documentary about this case on Lifetime tonight after a typical Lifetime movie came on that was made a while back called "Amanda Knox" sory. After the movie I saw the update stated..that she was cleared and free,but after the documenray I could not see how in the hell she was cleared. In fact,I find it astounding. Whether she did this or not I can not believe that this young woman doesn't know what happened. Something is very wrong here. No,I am not celebrating quite yet.

Did the cops test the DNA of the other six Italian roommates? The two Italian women living in the same unit and the four Italian guys living downstairs, one of whom had been Kercher’s lover the two weeks before the murder? p.s. Nancy Grace is a cow.

My opinion Amanda was involved, to what extent who knows, but because the Italian courts are so screwed up and their system basically flawed, who could possibly get a fair trial. Really pathetic how this whole horrific crime unfolded and makes one understand the Justice System in Italy is appalling. I think she was so strung out on drugs she has no idea what happened. Did she participate in the murder, only she knows! She is however very lucky to be free, but may some day face final judgment

It is conforting to know that I live in a society where many of you actually researched the evidence in the case and formed an opinion based on facts and not on NBC's propaganda.

Larry, First off, why would Amanda ever want to return to Italy. Second, the prosecutor has already appealed to the Supreme Court but now the appeal is more like the U.S. appellate system. The question will be court error. But, I don't know if the Supreme Court rejects the appeal, that it will not pick it up again.
Italy does not have the provision againt double jeopardy, so Amanda should never return. If the Italian SC rules for overturning the verdict, I highly doubt the United States would extradite Amanda Knox.

We'll said fred0987. IT took me a couple hours to sift through the evidence against here, but it's overwhelming. They key to understanding this case is realizing that the "Break in" at the apartment was staged. The truejustice site is probably the best source for evidence in this case. It will be interesting to see if the appeal is overturned. Knox may never be able to go to Italy again.
