Amanda Knox: Finally Free 30th March 2015

Amanda Knox has finally been cleared of the murder of Meredith Kercher.
Not before time. When I realised how little evidence there was that she was even there on the night in question, let alone had committed the murder, it makes me wonder how she was even a suspect, let alone the accused.
In this country, or the USA, the police would have struggled to get an arrest warrant, let alone get the case to trial.
It's scary to think how easy it is to be blamed for something you didn't do in a country where the language is unfamiliar and you don't understand the justice system.
The police did no real investigation - they just jumped on someone they thought the media would have a field day with. They were right about that. The media condemned her from day one, and had the general public all up in arms.
How she was ever found guilty I just can't fathom. You would expect the judge to be above media manipulation.
Its not justice that she is finally acquitted. That's not going to bring back the 4 years she spent in prison for a crime she didn't commit, its not going to erase all them memories and it won't stop the "no smoke without fire crowd" from always doubting her. She should be given a huge compensation payment - this won't undo the wrongs she's suffered, but it would help her start over.
It's also not justice for Meredith and her family. Her killer has been allowed to get away with this while everyone jumped on the Amanda bandwagon. Whoever allowed this to happen should be held accountable.
