Italians Shocked After Sunbathers Relax on Beach Near Dead Bodies

Naples Photographs that depict Italian sunbathers relaxing at the beach despite the nearby presence of the bodies of two Gypsy girls who had drowned, have raised questions about Italian attitudes toward the Roma minority, The U.K. Guardian reported.

The incident took place outside of Naples on Saturday. At about 1 p.m., four Gypsy teens, who had reportedly been begging beachgoers, decided to go into the water, despite apparently not being able to swim. The girls were hit by an unusually large wave, resulting in an attempted rescue by life-savers from a nearby beach. Two of the girls were saved. The other two, aged 14 and 16, could not be reached in time, The Guardian reported.

Not to sound callous... but they’re DEAD! What are you going to do about it? You might as well enjoy your day at the beach...

Why would they just be left at the beach, why weren’t they taken away is the real question.

Laz needs bail?


Let's see now ... I go to the beach and see a couple of bulges under some wraps/towels .... which is more morbid? ... go take a peek or lie down and cop some rays?

Rays win.

How do they know the people knew?

They last thing I would think is that dead bodies were being left on the beach covered by towels.

Apparently the poor fellow has been banned. Through no fault of his own, of course...

Only way to prove prejudice, is to get some White bathers, drown them, put them on the beach on towels, and see if anyone acts differently.

In June, I was at a resort in the Dominican Republic that was inhabited by 95% Italians, if it started to sprinkle, they ran for cover (duh, hello, you are in a swimsuit on a BEACH), how bizarre they sit there with dead bodies like it’s nothing....
