Comments on: Anti-Americanism at play in Italian verdict? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/07/anti-americanism-at-play-in-italian-verdict/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Anon86 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/07/anti-americanism-at-play-in-italian-verdict/comment-page-1/#comment-405331 Tue, 08 Dec 2009 11:10:05 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=22914#comment-405331 I don’t think it is anti-americanism.

But Italy has certainly been anti-murder for some time now. So this kind of thing shouldn’t be too unusual.

But then again, Europe got confused when we tried to punish a pedophile for child sex crimes. So perhaps it is just a funny world.

Or perhaps people simply don’t respect the legal systems outside their own?

What may be legal or lawful in the host country may be illegal here, and vise versa.

The U.S. government refuses to turn over any of the accused for trial. How about the U.S. military pilot that flew his plane so low he destroyed a sky lift killing and injuring Italian citizens? That Pilot was never turned over to Italian authorities either. Status of Forces Agreements have shielded thousands of U.S. servicemen over the years from criminal prosecution around the world. Your probably correct. There is a lot of anti American sentiment and not just in Italy.
