Amanda Knox Decision Bashed By Nancy Grace

October 05, 2011 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ

ABC’s Dancing With The Stars contestant, Nancy Grace is known for her strong opinions, but she has been on the receiving end of the critique lately on the show. However, Nancy Grace was not about to sit back and keep her mouth shut when it came to the Amanda Knox decision. What did she have to say? You’ll have to read on to find out!

Dancing With The Stars contestant, Nancy Grace is very vocal when it comes to her opinions, and recently, the HLN host made it clear that she does not see Amanda Knox as an innocent woman. In fact, Nancy Grace recently spoke to People Magazine about the decision and she told them: “I think that it was a miscarriage of justice. I only hope that Ms. Knox makes something of her life now because she’s certainly been given a second chance.”

Amanda Knox was on trial and then convicted of the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher back in 2007, and was originally sentenced to 26 years in prison. But after a successful appeal, she was set free on Monday, and Nancy Grace thinks that Amanda Knox got a chance that “very few people” get. This is certainly not a shocker to us, as Nancy Grace usually holds nothing back when it comes to her opinions, but at least she went easier on Amanda Knox than she did on Casey Anthony. When Casey Anthony was released, Nancy said: “The devil is dancing tonight.”

    Nancy Grace is very savvy about the media and is only speaking out against Amanda Knox in an effort to garner more media attention to advance her own career as if Dancing with the Stars was not enough. The evidence against Amanda Knox was so weak that it wouldn’t have even been enough to make it to trial in the USA. Then you have a prosecutor who is himself being prosecuted for misconduct on past trials and is yet still allowed to prosecute another trial of the vary same nature as the one he is being investigated on. Nancy Grace may get the media attention she is seeking for now, but in the end I believe she’s going to look very foolish and her credibility will suffer. I know I have no interest in anything she has to say in the future since she can’t see the injustice in the Amanda Knox trial.

    I truly think you have lost your mind. Were you at Amanda’s interrogation. Frightened, naive, in a foreign country with no representation, and interrogated by men and not understanding the Italian language and being able to respond in like, for hours on end. Anything could have been obtained and twisted from a terrorized 19 year old in that situation. I hope you really can really justify your comments, but I think you believe it’s a way to obtain an audience for your program. Shame on you. Time to think about your own children that you love so much in that situation. You of all people know that judicial systems in many if not most foreign countries is much different than ours. A great deal believe in guilty until you prove yourself innocent. I have respected you and your show for the most part, but I would find myself hardpressed to believe in most of what you have to say in the future. If this is a way to spice up your program, I hope you are sued to the furthest degree. Ann Hovik

    What gives her the right to weigh in on the Amanda Knox conviction being overturned?Nancy Grace doesn’t know when to mind her own business. As a lawyer she should know that police everywhere will do whatever it takes to get a confession from a potential suspect, can you say coerced!!

    Nancy Grace is a sham…If she is still a lawyer shame on her…She knows nothing…says nothing of value…Deserves to be in jail for driving that young woman to suicide….And I, for one, would never watch her lard bounce around on a dance floor…

    first time I agreed with Nancy Grace
    This position will make her very unpopular
    and lose her some viewers which surprises me even more, I didn’t think she had the guts to speak the truth
    They all know Knox is guilty, but just like it was popular to bash Casey, it’s popular now for TV bubble heads to praise Knox

    Now that the faulty appeal has been overturned, people are starting to realize Knox is guilty. The media coverage here in the US is still pretty slanted by the PR firm Gogerty Marriott. But once the blood money from Knox’s book runs dry they’ll abandon her quicker than Casey Anthony looses a toddler.
