Italian Seismologists Considered at Fault After Earthquake


As moonbattery corrodes our concepts of justice and responsibility, ever more criminals roam free. Society compensates for this by finding bizarre reasons to punish the innocent:

Earthquake prediction can be a grave, and faulty [yuk yuk] science, and in the case of Italian seismologists who are being tried for the manslaughter of the people who died in the 2009 L’Aquila quake, it can have legal consequences.

The group of seven, including six seismologists and a government official, reportedly didn’t alert the public ahead of time of the risk of the L’Aquila earthquake, which occurred on April 6 of that year, killing around 300 people, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Scientists can explain seven ways to Sunday that there is no reliable way to predict earthquakes, but it won’t do them any good. Bureaucrats need scapegoats.

Next we can expect meteorologists to get thrown in jail for causing car accidents when it unexpectedly rains or snows.
