    ugh, I never agree with violence, no matter who it's aimed against.

    A broken nose and two broken teeth btw :shake:

    He should not have been attaacked, as it is anti societal. If he was to have done something wrong that is an issue for debate, not retribution. If he was to attack the other first then there is cause. To 'lynch' someone is bad news.

    There is no doubt he will use that to his political advantage. Even so, haha, Berlusconi got popped! :lol:

    I don't agree with violence against him, but my compassion for him is very limited. When you put your hands into a bee hive, you'll get stitches -- and when you screw the entire people over multiple times, by abusing their tax money, by fraud, by destroying democracy and placing yourself above the law by evading trials for white collar crimes, while every common person on the street who cannot afford to bribe the state like this gets convicted ... then I guess it's no surprise when some of them get really angry.

    Berlusconi's model of running Italy is maybe the biggest threat a Western democracy has been facing in the last decade. That doesn't make it right to use physical violence against him -- it would be better if finally, he could no longer evade and trick himself out of the means of legal prosecution that exist. But what Berlusconi has done to the Italian people is many, many times worse than this attack on him.
