If you've watched the infamous "If You Touch My Junk, I'll Have You Arrested" video on YouTube, you already know how excruciating it is to spend 15 minutes in the company of John Tyner — the California man who recorded his encounter with airport security. If you haven't, don't bother. The video quality is abysmal. The audio is substandard. The script, largely written by Tyner himself in an unfortunately successful bid for folk hero status, is repetitive and trite. The only redeeming thing about it is the businesslike, courteous performance of Transportation Security Administration officers who confronted the obnoxious and arrogant provocation by a young man who clearly views himself as their moral and intellectual superior.

Don Papa's real name is Shaidon Emanuel Blake, and depending on whether one believes the police or him, he is either an out-of-town hit man for a gang or an opportunist lured by the city's desperate heroin users. A portrait of the 35-year-old California resident, whose murder trial continues today in Baltimore Circuit Court, has emerged in interviews with homicide detectives found in the thick court file and in a letter he wrote to The Sun from his jail cell. Blake denies that he bound, tortured, burned and suffocated Terrance Randolph, 19, in a West Baltimore house a year ago this month.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - In a case that became a real-life soap opera for millions of Americans, Scott Peterson was found guilty yesterday of first-degree murder with special circumstances in the death of his wife, Laci, who was eight months pregnant with their first child when she vanished on Christmas Eve 2002 from her home in Modesto. Peterson was also found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of his unborn son. The first-degree murder verdict makes him eligible to receive the death penalty, which will be determined in a separate phase of the trial.
