Italian “Justice” for All

Italian “Justice” for All

This is easily one of the dumbest cases on Earth. It is one of the dumbest cases about the Earth. I don’t know how may of you follow the Italian “justice system,” but most of you have heard of at least the biggest injustice of all, the Amanda Knox case.

Well, Italian justice has not been sleeping. In fact they have been shaking things up a bit. Their great earthquake in 2009 that affected L’Aquila caused a lot of damage and the loss of about 300 lives. Never a country to let anyone off easy, they decided to indict and send seven men to trial on charges of not giving sufficient warning. These seven were members of the Italian “National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks.”

So on April 6, 2009 a quake with a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale hits near L’Aquila.  At least 308 people die in the quake. There was a controversy in the days leading up to the quake that swarms of quakes could have possibly been a precursor for an upcoming quake.

Let me quote from the Christian Science Monitor in an article they published this week:

Joel Cohen, a professor at Columbia and Rockefeller universities who applies mathematical models to complex environmental problems, explained how the decision was made in a piece earlier this year:

Italy’s National Commission for Prediction and Prevention of Major Risks, which comprised the seven men now on trial, met in L’Aquila for one hour on March 31, 2009, to assess the earthquake swarms. According to the minutes, Enzo Boschi, President of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, was asked if they were precursors to an earthquake resembling the one in 1703. He replied: “It is unlikely that an earthquake like the one in 1703 could occur in the short term, but the possibility cannot be totally excluded (emphasis added).”

Six days later disaster struck. Should Mr. Boschi and his colleagues pay for this? And what would have happened if he’d said “there is a high probability of a major earthquake at some point in the next year?” Would the city of 70,000 have been evacuated? And what if no earthquake came in a year? Would Boschi have been sued for damages?

So there you have it.  The seven were convicted and will likely do several years in the Italian prison system.

That’s justice, Italian style.  Makes you kind of not want to even set foot in Italy, doesn’t it.

Next I assume they will be charging others with “global warming.”
