Dubious[edit]

Bando means gang in Italian, not proclamation! The Ogre 20:27, 27 August 2007 (UTC) Wrong! BANDO means proclamation or notice.

"The most influential brigand of the zone was Domenico Tiburzi, called Domenichino and known as the King of Lamone, or the Robin Hood of Maremma. He always refused to come into alliance with Ansuini because he considered him no more than a common outlaw." Domenico Tiburzi is a fictional character. (ref article on author Luigi Ugolini) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.70.142.243 (talk) 00:49, 18 October 2009 (UTC)


Also Dubious, but not in the same fashion "The conditions which favour the development of brigandage may be _easily_ summed up as bad administration" is, as I read it, an Authoritarian, or at minimum a Statist theory. At best it is a theory, debatable by behavioral, personal choice, chemical pre-determinism, and many others. 147.226.163.67 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 19:51, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

Entire sentences and sections of this article are lifted word-for-word from the 1911Encyclopedia Brittanica without appropriate citation. Is that "incorporating" text? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.220.89.230 (talk) 07:08, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Fixed with citations and Attribution in the References section (see (WP:PLAGARISM) -- PBS (talk) 06:33, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Merge with Outlaw[edit]

With this edit on 22 October 2010 user:Dbachmann introduced two templates {{duplication}} {{merge|Outlaw}}. Unfortunately he came to the page after some extensive vandalism and I don't think it did not make much sense in the form it was in.

I have now cleaned up the page and deleted some information that had been here for over a year with {{citation needed}} templates sitting at the ends of the paragraphs.

I have also removed the two templates because there had been no discussion here on this page and I think that the two concepts are different. One can be an outlaw and not a brigand, equally one can be a brigand and not be outlawed. As brigandage has a specific meaning under the laws of war, I think that the articles should be kept distinct, but I would not object if the whole example section was deleted as it is based on the the EB1911 and is dated with details of interest to someone 100 years ago but of little relevance today. -- PBS (talk) 06:33, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
