  2. The Germ Alarm Will Shame Public Bathroom Rebels Into Washing Their Hands

    Just when you didn't think anyone could make public bathrooms worse.

    Reynaldo Dagsa, a politician from The Philippines, took this haunting picture outside of his home just after midnight on New Year's Day. While he intended to take a picture of his family, Dagsa inadvertently photographed the gunman who would take his life. The man raising the gun in the photo, later identified as Michael Gonzales [crosshairs superimposed], was assisted by a lookout, who you can see behind Dagsa's family; according to local police, the two were "known car thieves and holduppers out on bail," and may have held a grudge against the politician for having them arrested in his capacity as a member of a local anticrime team. Dagsa, who was shot in the arm and in the chest, did not survive the shooting, but the photograph he took helped police catch his killers.
