You’re right, in a sense, about tattoos making it easier to identify a person. But there are *plenty* of right-wingers and military folks with tattoos.

It seems like the state’s case was really weak, but maybe there was evidence I don’t know about.

I write true crime and twisted fiction. I also host a true-crime YouTube channel at
