Only Italians that are in the US can be called "WOP". It's the old term for illegal alien.

WOP = With Out Papers

Knox could be extradited under an agreement between the United States and Italy.

I express disgust with my Italian heritage. My grandma's parents had the intelligence to come over from the Lake Como region sometime in the 1880's. It's a Darwinian phenomenon, but on a shorter timescale.

She’s been found not guilty. This high court decision violates the US standard I accept. If you think this “un-acquittal” fair perhaps you should go in her place.

There are about six or seven explanations for the origin of that slur; the word “Guappo” being the most likely but no one is really sure. Guappo in the neopolitan dialect means thug or bully or bandit. The “G” is very soft sounding to an American ear like a “Y” or a “W”.

She seemed guilty of the crime to me and I have a good knowledge of the evidence. Her acquittal in my opinion was due to favorable press in this country by the likes of NBC GMA, etc.
She has not a leg of US law to stand on if found guilty again and sent back. I could really care less about her if she is found guilty.
The murdered girl deserves justice and that is the Italian courts job here. I’ll be not disappointed with another guilty verdict.

Just review passenger ship lists. Every once in a while you’ll come across an Italian or Irish immigrant with the handwritten word “WOP” where it is suppose to be confirmed that they are carrying the proper documents to come to the United States.

“This high court decision violates the US standard I accept.”

And as a caution to anyone going to Europe - most of those countries, Italy included, do not have the “innocent until proven guilty” standard. It is the opposite.

The murder wasn't in the U.S.

It was in Italy, and that's their system.

Don't like the local laws, don't go there.

Then why aren’t the Irish ever referred to with that slur? Guappo seems much more likely.

I hope she never leaves the U.S. again. She was unfairly put in fail for four years and was given a trial and found innocent. God Bless this young woman. Stay out of Italy and the EU!!!!
