So the Italians have decided to lock-up scientists. Specifically they have imprisoned 6 scientists six years each, for failing to warn about the L'Aquila earthquake in 2009.

The outrageous guilty verdict could only, surely, have negative consequences. Certainly if I were an Italian vulcanologist studying Etna, I would be thinking seriously about a career move, or at least a change of active research project.
