Kercher case verdict to avoid brutta figura?
Was the guilty verdict at the Meredith Kercher trial to save face for the judiciary and Italy as a whole as suggested in this article: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/dec/06/amanda-knox-meredith-kercher-trial-perugia?CMP=AFCYAH. What is your opinion? Were they guilty or was there at least insufficient evidence to convict them? It seems a very unsafe conviction to me.
