Human Rights Lawyer, Journalist Shot Dead in Russia

It's interesting that, within the first couple of paragraphs of the story, it's noted that people who oppose government decisions are frequently targeted.

"'This is a horrible, frightening crime,' said Tatyana Lokshina of the Human Rights Watch."

And this is the U-turn that Russia is accelerating along.
