Default Assassination breeds protest in Guatemala

We don't have caped crusaders saving us from villains, or mutants protecting our planet from impending doom, but we do have our share of heroes. What would you do if you knew you would die within a year. Not from some disease, but from performing a job and being an admirable person. Well Rodrigo Rosenberg used his last time alive to call the names out of the those that would kill him. In a video, released upon death (he was murdered while riding his bike), Rodrigo Rosenberg tells everyone that he knows he will be killed and he will be killed for the president of Guatemala.

Rodrigo Rosenberg's Video... [translated to english]
YouTube - Asesinato Rodrigo Rosenberg 1 (English Subs)

You can find the whole story around the net, instead of me just smashing it down to a paragraph. Apart from this, the video and already rumored wrongdoings by the president, resulted in large protests in Guatemala.

He might not have super powers or a mask, but this guy knows how to be a badass.

Simply unreal. The worst part of it is that Colom will probably get away with it, and this even made it to a courtroom it would be thrown out as circumstatial.
