Syria's lethal Facebook checkpoints

Boing Boing - 24 April, 2014 - 02:00
An anonymous tip from a highly reliable source: "There are checkpoints in Syria where your Facebook is checked for affiliation with the rebellious groups or individuals aligned with the rebellion. People are then disappeared or killed if they are found to be connected. Drivers are literally forced to load their Facebook/Twitter accounts and then they are riffled through. It's happening daily, and has been for a year at least." Anyone have any corroboration for this?

Accused murderer wants "murder" tattoo hidden pre-trial

Boing Boing - 24 April, 2014 - 01:09

This gentleman is Jeffrey Wade Chapman who will soon go to trial in Barton County, Kansas for first degree murder. Chapman's attorney has filed a motion requesting that before the trial Chapman be permitted to have a tattoo artist cover up his client's tattoo -- the word "MURDER" in mirror image -- because it "is irrelevant to the State’s case and would be extremely prejudicial to Mr. Chapman if introduced at trial or observed by the jury.” The State doesn't oppose Chapman's covering the tattoo but will not transport him to a licensed tattoo shop, and it's illegal for a tattoo artist to practice anywhere else.
