1. The folks at Mandatory put together this handy dandy map detailing the most awful people in America, state by state.
This isn’t about the rude cashier at the bank around the corner or that guy who stands on the corner yelling tacky things at women all day. We’re talking serial killers, cult leaders, and mass murderers.
Who’s the worst from your state?
UPDATE: Cameron Todd Willingham, listed as Oklahoma’s “worst person,” was in fact executed in Texas for a crime that he may well have not committed — casting some doubt on the research that went into this map. (h/t @radleybalko)
- Nicholas Winton, who saved more than 650 Jewish children from the Holocaust, died at 106.
- Mozambique implemented a new criminal code that removes a colonial-era law criminalizing homosexuality.
