The Day Ahead: SCOTUS and Amanda Knox
by

Today the Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments over California’s Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage. The case, often referred to as the gay Roe v. Wade, has sparked enormous debate here in Washington, with crowds supportive of and opposed to gay marriage gathering outside the Court. Our own Kyle Peterson is attending the oral arguments and Teresa Mull is onsite at the March for Marriage. It should be noted that, despite the hubbub, the Court’s decision isn’t expected until June.

In the meantime, this is just a shame:

American Amanda Knox vowed Tuesday to fight with her head “held high” to prove her innocence after Italian Supreme Court judges ruled Tuesday she should stand trial again for the death of her former roommate in Italy.

Knox spent four years in prison before an appellate court overturned her murder conviction, citing lack of evidence against her in the 2007 death of Meredith Kercher in Perugia.

This despite the fact that Knox’s last trial found a “material non-existence” of evidence to support her guilt. Another man with a criminal past, Rudy Guede, was already convicted of Knox’s murder after his fingerprints and DNA were found at the scene of the crime. The case against Knox, prosecuted by the flamboyant public minister Giuliano Mignini, was tainted with anti-Americanism and outlandish accusations of orgiastic Satanic rituals. Knox already lost four years of her life thanks to this farce. She shouldn’t have to spend another day in prison.
