Best Gore member @gianlufone brought to our attention the all familiar case of a policeman killing a citizen and getting away with it because they are a cop, but this time from Italy. Whereas @gianlufone is himself an Italian living in Sicily, he provided us with insight both on the case surrounding these pictures, and also how it is with police in Italy:
I’m a 26 year old male from Sicily in Italy. I’m writing to you to bring to your attention a case of incredible injustice that happened in the city of Messina in Sicily. We have a dead girl, two crashed cars, and a drunk driver who is a cop.
Lorena Mangano, 23 years old girl student, on the night of June 25, 2016, traveled with 4 friends in her Fiat Panda (she was at the wheel).
Her car was violently hit by Audi TT driven by 32 years old Gaetano Forestieri, Guardia di Finanza member (an Italian police agency). He tested positive to alcohol test.
4 of the 5 Panda passengers escaped with minor injuries. Lorena died after 3 days in hospital.
In Italy, new law was created in 2015, which makes vehicular manslaughter equal to any unintentional murder. Before that law, if you killed someone because you were driving drunk, you got away with just your driver’s license taken.
But Forestieri, inexplicably, will not be prosecuted for killing the girl.
Italy is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. If you are a cop, you’re not held to account for killing an innocent. I really hope you publish my story. Thanks for your time. Greetings from Sicily.
Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention, and bringing us up to speed on the state of police corruption in Italy. We think all police corruption needs to be exposed for what it is, and appreciate our members sharing their experiences with us.
