Vincenzo De Luca, mayor of the Italian town of Campania, gave an angry speech on his Facebook page where he threatened to send police “with flamethrowers” to illegal gatherings like graduations parties that were happening in the midst of the nationwide quarantine.
“I’m getting news that some [people] would like to throw graduation parties… We will send police. With flamethrowers”, De Luca said, according to the National Post.
In another rant published in social media, Massimiliano Presciutti, the mayor of Reggio Calabria, complained of people walking their dogs like Will Smith in I Am Legend.
“Where the f*** are you all going? You and your dogs… which must have an inflamed prostate?”, he said in a video circulating on social media.
Presciutti claimed that he stopped dog walkers on the street to shame them about being outside.
