First Drip (2/12/15): High schoolers' nude photos, Ukraine cease-fire, more

Police have discovered the male student who created a Dropbox account with 75 nude photos of teenage girls who attend CMS and nearby. The youngest girl is 14 years old, and the photos were self-taken. Police are looking into whether charges can or should be filed, and we're considering never having children.

Local Muslims react to the killings of three Muslim college students in Chapel Hill. “What if the reverse happened and a Muslim killed three students at UNC-Chapel Hill?” Osama Idlibi, president of the Muslim American Society of Charlotte, told the Observer. “Can you imagine the reaction? Can you imagine the media response? Clearly this is a hate crime. Look at this man's posts on Facebook, and you can see the hate in his heart toward Islam and religion in general.”

A Portland woman calling herself a citizen journalist is suing the city of Gresham saying her rights were violated when police took away her phone as she recorded and live-streamed them arresting a young man two years ago. The federal lawsuit touches on free speech and what's considered an unreasonable search and seizure.

At least 5,400 people have been killed since Russian-backed pro-separtists and Ukraine started going at it. Leaders have finally reached a tentative cease-fire deal.
