From what I've seen the original trial was a sham and the prosecutor should be ashamed.

Hard to say... I think if you included the option of "Innocent of Murder but still involved somehow" that'd probably get most of the votes.

The Kerchers care. They still have a murdered daughter, but no murderer.

I don't know if she is or not. All I know is that the first trial was a witch-hunt, headed by an insane, not to mention corrupted, prosecutor and his wild allegations of satanic rituals and sexual orgies, fueled by rabid tabloid style media and rampant anti-americanism in both Italy and the UK. They had zero credible, untainted forensic evidence and everything else they had on Knox and Sollecito was text-book circumstantial evidence.

They may very well be guilty, no one really knows, but the prosecution did not even come close to proving it.

That's a good summation.

Actually, they do have a murderer....

They have one of her murderers. It was established that there were others in the house that night.

" Outside the courtroom in Perugia on Monday night, Italians booed and heckled, shouting “Give us Amanda!”, shaking their fists and threatening rough justice. A few paces away, a gaggle of airbrushed American television reporters excitedly broke the news to their audiences back home: “Amanda Knox is cleared of murder!”

Not since O J Simpson was tried for the murder of his wife Nicole has a court case gripped two continents in this way. Office staff in the US, where it was mid-afternoon, were allowed to stand by television sets and await the verdict from Perugia. But it was not only the cliff-hanger finale that drew everyone to this extraordinary courtroom drama...."
