By Samanta Di Persio

Federico Aldrovandi e Stefano Cucchi sono morti in circostanze oscure dopo l’arresto da parte delle forze dell’ordine. Casi ormai emblematici che grazie allo sforzo delle famiglie sono arrivati in tribunale. Ma according to poche storie che hanno conquistato le major pagine dei quotidiani, ce ne sono molte altre che l’opinione pubblica ha dimenticato o ignorato. Come quella di Niki Aprile Gatti, arrestato according to una frode informatica in cui è coinvolta los angeles società dove lavora. Unico tra i 18 accusati, accetta di collaborare, e cinque giorni dopo viene trovato impiccato in prigione. Come può un laccio da scarpe aver retto il peso di un ragazzo di ninety two chili? E Fabio Benini, morto a trent’anni di infarto alle Vallette di Torino: soffriva di anoressia, aveva perso 50 chili e collassava due volte al giorno, perché nessuno ha saputo intervenire? Non bastano il sovraffollamento e l’inadeguata assistenza psicologica e sanitaria a spiegare queste storie: spesso sono proprio le forze dell’ordine a macchiarsi di omissione di soccorso, abusi e violenze contro i detenuti che dovrebbero proteggere e rieducare. Crimini che restano quasi sempre impuniti, grazie a una rete di silenzi e depistaggi in cui l. a. giustizia sembra incapace di fare chiarezza. In questo crudo racconto di troppe morti sospette, Samanta di Persio ricostruisce, attraverso verbali e testimonianze dei famigliari, gli episodi più inquietanti, fa il punto sulle indagini in corso e denuncia il silenzio delle istituzioni. Perché l’Italia in line with legge non ammette los angeles pena di morte e los angeles tortura, ma forse le tollera quando avvengono dietro le sbarre.
