Italian state fails to protect its co-conspirators in torture and terror (though the scum escape any real punishment)

An Italian court has found 15 officials guilty of mistreating protesters following violent demonstrations at G8 meeting in the city of Genoa in 2001.

A judge handed down prison sentences ranging from five months to five years to the accused – many members of the police, as well as doctors.

Another 30 officials were cleared of charges, including assault.

Protesters have said they were strip-searched and beaten by police. The prosecution said they were tortured.
