We're very hopeful -- you know based upon you know the results that we'll hopefully get to take command home.
You know you never can tell.
You know it's it's it's up to the courts and have to decide.
To our panel now joining us is the former prosecutor and Fox News legal analyst Arthur right now on the criminal but attorney -- -- -- what they've been saying all along is it didn't happen this way.
That these Italians over there were stacked against her that this was largely a political thing that the evidence never existed.
That Amanda Knox was being railroaded in this thing that might have done something weird with some sex or something but she didn't murder anybody or that's the -- that's what -- -- It's an absolutely brilliant closing argument that's what happened -- keeping in mind that there is -- a young woman whose dad.
And parents who don't have a daughter.
Let's now focus in on the evidence and the reality here is you have questions as to whether they even had the right murder weapon this case was built on the DNA evidence which now a court.
Not a defense expert court appointed experts have come -- and said you've got to be kidding me sitting here this woman's going to be home by Thanksgiving.
They took the entire summer off in this case as apparently Italians -- want to do.
The entire summer off and they're letting this young American woman rot in an Italian jail while the court gets to around to the fact.
That the DNA evidence can't be used anymore what is wrong with these people -- Regular homeownership -- the second time it's happened it happened George during the regular trial when she was that the first trial this summer recess and the judges recessed this summer.
And then they did it again for the appeal.
What people need to know I'm like our system and the original jury that heard this is not a regular injury that we have in America it's two judges and six -- people.
And after the conviction in December of 09 in march of 2010 ship the two judges -- -- 427.
Of how they -- the evidence together to convict -- and they said with the evidence that they had at the time.
There was no other conclusion to reach than the one they were they reached now if this judge.
-- out the DNA evidence is as solid judges what you base your conviction on.
Was wrong we.
DNA is wrong well then -- -- -- that should be freedom avenue which is there an explanation for how they could have made.
Sold many errors along the way I mean maybe the wrong murder -- And you know there's an old saying in our business that often times an investigation supposed to be deducted reasoning you look at the evidence you look at everything and that leads you to a suspect.
But often times you say this is my suspect and now I'm gonna put the -- around the suspect.
The prosecutor in this case from day one thought He had the right girl came up with these -- -- idea -- -- -- -- this that the other without.
And which were ever proved and none of which quite frankly work relevant.
Reliable what we're talking about here is evidence and the only evidence that they had was the DNA evidence which now these court appointed experience said.
Got -- but I found it to a lot of a lot of observers in this case like they were just.
Not too happy with a little American girl having what they consider to be weird six over the Europe and Italy look I know that that's what that's what He claims where I also know that the one guy who was convicted champion DNA -- -- -- simply getting all -- what -- there was Amanda Knox is DNA well.
On the murder weapon that may not be the murder weapon correct and and and look at the if -- gonna be honest about an honest conversations on a knife.
That's in the kitchen where she lived presumably she was cut a piece of review of double gold.
That day and -- about DNA could be all of that stuff that that the murder weapon.
But -- as we know for all these cases we've covered an appeals court is reluctant to absolutely let somebody walked out.
Went to judges and six -- people.
Roberts who 427 page decision.
As to why should they believe she's guilty extent is a critical difference -- you brought this up the last time we talked about this case which is that in Italian law.
The appellate judge can basically try the whole case all over dinner one not and -- Nazi just rot over -- -- -- but to see how we refer to have boxing Nazi I think that knocks it became.
They're the ones over there in the Italian media who gave this young American woman this name -- I'm well well.
I'm not about the English media because it -- a young woman British -- and British media could you know they're very very the other out there let's give him.
Country person died -- -- obviously they haven't actually write -- now our parents are gonna be there at the verdict.
And the judge usually.
If he's gonna let this young woman who was convicted of killing another young woman don't He get -- the look at the parents of the woman will woman -- -- deceased and say sorry you know we put we we messed up real bad that we could put the wrong guy in -- wrongful convictions not gonna girl woman back.
So that it too long certainly.
-- -- -- right yet obviously but you know they need to get the bottom of this thing and it sounds like you're trying to do that now -- and Arthur thank you both.
