What an Italian joke!
L'Aquila quake: Italy scientists guilty of manslaughter - Because they failed to predict an earthquake.... SERIOUSLY?

Six Italian scientists and an ex-government official have been sentenced to six years in prison over the 2009 deadly earthquake in L'Aquila.

A regional court found them guilty of multiple manslaughter.

Prosecutors said the defendants gave a falsely reassuring statement before the quake, while the defence maintained there was no way to predict major quakes.

The 6.3 magnitude quake devastated the city and killed 309 people.

'Alarming' case
It took Judge Marco Billi slightly more than four hours to reach the verdict.

The seven were judged to have provided "inexact, incomplete and contradictory" information about the danger of the tremors that were felt ahead of 6 April 2009 quake, Italian media report.

The defendants were also ordered to pay court costs and damages.

It was not immediately known if they planned to appeal.

The case has alarmed many in the scientific community, who feel science itself has been put on trial.

More than 5,000 scientists signed an open letter to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano in support of the defendants.

soooo collaborative government .... using source control. citizens editing laws - tax code, penal code, budgets. With revision history, provable test cases of what works and what doesn't and accountability for who broke what. before I typed that I was going to ask "why not?"....accountability, that's why.
