Read this in our local paper a week or so ago and have been steaming over it ever since.:rant: Maybe some of our Floridians can weigh in on this topic. Might be time for a new judge down there.

Neo-Nazi in murder trial gets makeover for trial
The Associated Press
New Port Richey, Fla.--John Allen Ditullio is a walking billboard for the neo-Nazi movement: a large 6-inch swastika tattooed under his right ear, barbed wire inked down the right side of his face and an extreme and very personal vulgarity scrawled on one side of his neck.
Jurors will never see any of it. A judge has ruled that the state must pay a cosmetologist up to $150 a day during Ditullio's trial on murder and attempted murder charges and apply makeup to cover up the black ink.

I heard about that on the radio here in NC... what a joke. Let them see him for who he truly is not what the judge thinks he needs to look like for a "fair" trial. He has chosen to display these tattoos where they can been seen and should not be disguised for a trial.

This is pretty bad. What is/has our Judicial System coming to?

Well...... the guy could be innocent -- and knowing that jurors appear to be governed more by their emotions instead of common sense reliance on the facts of the case (e.g., OJ) -- I think justice should allow the guy to cover up the tats.

But if this story is true, what would piss me off is that the state has to pay for it. :mad:

Since it was an AP release and I clipped it from our local newspaper I can only assume that it is true. I would still like to hear the views from some of our members from the great state of Florida this. And who is the judge that would authorize something this outrageous?

I was traveling last week and haven't seen or read anything about it. I will say if it is true it's as much an injustice and mockery of our judicial system since the OJ Simpson case.

Like Shepherd said --- I more mad about the fact that my tax dollars are paying for the coverup --- Pun intended.
