    I thought they were convicted for reassuring everyone that there was no chance of an earthquake thus preventing a planned evacuation that would have saved lives

    The sentenced them to prison because they predicated an earthquake was coming, but they didn't warn the village/gov.

    Can you sue a doctor for telling you to stop smoking and you'll be fine, but he missed an already existing tumor? This kind of seems like the same

    EDIT: FTA: "They argued in court that the L'Aquila disaster was tantamount to `'monumental negligence," and cited the devastation wrought in the southern United States in 2005 when levees failed to protect the city of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina."

    ^ This is nothing like not building adequate levees. To me this just seems like a mishap where symptoms were not diagnosed, but I'm dumb and don't know anything about anything, so don't listen to me.

    Just had a look at the facts and that indeed does appear to be some extreme bullshit. Weatherman will be next in line for a kicking

    Unfortunately, shit like this doesn't surprise me at all.

    Ironically, those same prosecutors who brought the charges can ruin people's lives by wrongfully convicting them, and they are immune to any prosecution themselves.

    The population is angry at the authorities for being useless, so they throw the blame, but what would you expect after all italy was the center of catholic inquisition which would sentence people to dead if they don't pass the trial of ordeal /wiki/Trial_by_ordeal

    What gets me is the part where there were small tremors for months and these people had to be told there might be an earthquake?

    No offense, the damn ground is moving, you gotta even ask?

    May be is out of topic:
    "Well, with the ex-Italian prime ministers that fuck younger than 18 girls, snort all the shit he can togheter with his "Friends", plan murders, and lots more stuff, and still at fucking 70 odd years old is going to try to get re-elected.
    Now he goes happily often, to Russia, doing the same shit, with his new friends, but where is more protected, from the paparazzi, and probabily there girls, think 5 times before, try to blackmail, or get arrested."

    Pure democracy = mob rules. "Socialism" is just a thin veneer of respectability that thieves get when they take over the government.
