John Allen Ditullio Jr., an avowed neo-Nazi whose face and neck are covered with tattoos -- including a swastika -- will appear at his trial this week minus the lurid markings thanks to a $125-a-day taxpayer-funded make-over.
Ditullio's attorney persuaded the judge that the "scary" tattoos would prejudice the Florida jury. The state is paying a cosmetologist to cover the tattoos every day during the trial because Ditullio is indigent.
Ditullio could face the death penalty for the stabbing death of a teenager in 2006, in an attack prosecutors call a hate crime motivated by racism and homophobia.
**Seriously? If the clothing that someone wore on the day they commit a crime can be seen as evidence, how can their tattoos be a prejudicial element?? He's wearing his beliefs right on his skin, and the jury should see it.

It's pathetic how people are willing to own their beliefs when they commit the crime but not when they face the consequences.

Is that considered job creation for the cosmetologist to be working for the state?
