WTF???? :confused:



Manslaughter charges for natural disasters are not unusual in Italy, but they have previously concerned breaches of building codes in areas at risk of quakes.

The manslaughter charge for breaches of building codes makes more sense to me than charging the scientists. There's a reason the codes existed in the first place.

To call this ridiculous is to be kind...:(
