School Mural Depicting Donald Trump's Severed Head Sparks Controversy

no title

A Chula Vista school mural that depicts Donald Trump's severed head has received a number of complaints, prompting school officials to release a statement.

In late April, at a scholarship fundraiser called "Battlegroundz," students and invited artists painted murals in an alley behind MAAC Community Charter School to promote urban art.

In one portion of the panorama, artist Sasha Andrade painted the President's decapitated head with a spear impaling his mouth. Not surprisingly, the image sparked controversy.

According to a statement from school director Tommy Ramirez obtained by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Andrade has agreed to change the artwork.

"We understand that there was a mural painted at the event this past weekend that does not align with our school's philosophy of non-violence… We have been in communication with the artist — who has agreed to modify the artwork — to better align with the school's philosophy."

On Friday, the controversial project was covered up with a piece of plywood, as a vehicle parked in front of it.

Although school officials said Andrade was willing to alter her work, her May 2 post on Instagram suggested otherwise.

Watch Out, Apple Stores! Burglars Have It Out For You!

burglars targeting apple stores

Guess people REALLY want those iPads…

According to Special Agent J.J. Klaver in Philadelphia, PA, the FBI is currently assisting with Apple Store burglary cases all over the country.

Locations that have been affected include Connecticut, Virgina, and Chula Vista, CA, where a security guard fatally shot an armed burglary suspect on Monday.

So is Apple doing anything to counter these attacks? Here's what Lt. Walt Miller of the Evesham Twshp, NJ Police Department had to say about it:

"They do try to increase their security as best they can with alarm systems, security guards and the thickness of the glass."

More from technology consultant Richard Doherty of The Envisioneering Group:

"They have electronic serial numbers in the mobile phones and the Wi-Fi iPads so whenever and wherever they are turned on in the world, they will know where they are. The thieves may not be aware of that."

At least they're making the effort. Hopefully they'll step up their game even more by the next Holiday season.

We'd hate to hear of any more violence related to Apple Store break-ins. So sad and SO unnecessary.
