Amanda Knox: Publisher's view: Why she should not hand herself over to an italian justice system which has proven itself so incompetent - especially in its handling of the forensic evidence - and so unfair. (And why the Italian courts should back off.) Harold Levy. Publisher. The Charles Smith Blog.


Who can blame Amanda Knox for not wanting to hand herself over to an Italian  criminal justice system that has proven itself so incompetent - especially in its handling of forensic evidence - and so unfair in its refusal to give her and Raffaele Sollecito the complete and utter exoneration they deserve? Instead, Italy's highest court has attempted to hide the rank injustice meted out to Knox and her co-accused under a web of supposed  deficiencies, contradictions and illogical conclusions which it claims justify a new hearing - but in fact   are hollow and worthy of scorn.  The shoddy DNA "science" used to convict them has been exposed.  There is nothing else. They were properly acquitted by a lower court as should have been the case.  Enough already. Hopefully Amanda Knox can rise above the horror she has  wrongfully  been put through and will be treated with the sympathy and respect she deserves - and the Italian courts will find the courage to recognize its flawed treatment of her case, learn from its errors, and back off.

The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be found at:
