Miyuki Ishikawa was a Japanese midwife and serial killer who is believed to have murdered many infants with the aid of several accomplices throughout the 1940s. It is estimated that her victims numbered between 85 to 169, however the general estimate is 103. When she was finally apprehended, the sentence she received (4 years in prison) was remarkably light considering that Miyuki's actions resulted in a death toll so high that it remains unrivaled by any other serial killer in Japan.

Before Hitler ruined it, the swastika was a positive symbol with a very, very long history. This is a photo of two kids before a Halloween dance on October 25, 1918. Did you know?

Crazy it became the symbol of such evil!!!'

The remains of the astronaut Vladimir Komarov after the Soyuz 1 crash in 1967. Komarov demanded an open casket personally because he wanted to send a message to the government officials who had caused his death. He knew the capsule was unsafe and that he would very likely die, he knew he would not be returning alive so he made the demand before launching. His final “revenge” was forcing his superiors to look at what they had done.
