We'd love to give these people the benefit of the doubt, but if you make mention of a hashtag, CHANCES ARE YOU CLICKED ON THAT HASHTAG to see what the fuss was about. And the winky face? Oh, that winky face.
A very public sexual assault captured by television cameras in Guwahati, India has many of the country's name celebrities up in arms. The disturbing video shows a woman being attacked by a group of roughly 30 men, with nobody stepping in to help. It took local police half an hour to respond to the incident. Only three people from the gathered mob have been arrested so far.
Detroit rapper Young Calicoe recently posted a video tour of his home on YouTube, and he made sure to show off his (alleged) backyard animal-fighting operation, including makeshift kennels that house his collection of dogs and roosters:
Anybody want a fighting dog? I hope we don't get indicted for that. That Michael Vick type sh*t.
An author who is investigating the brutal March 2010 beating of a hit-and-run suspect by Pennsylvania State Police officers has made public a video documentary (extremely graphic; Not Safe For Work -- repeated expletives) of the incident in which he breaks down the entire assault and subsequent injustices against the victim.
"There's possibly a good chance that there's a cover-up at all levels," said Mike Kitner, a Towanda, PA, resident. "We just want some answers, we want somebody to come down and look into it because we're not getting any."
Here's the back story: In March 2010, Leone was brutally beaten by five state troopers after he refused to pull over when directed. Leone alleges the beatings continued at Memorial Hospital in Towanda, and at police barracks.
He recovered from his injuries, and eventually was found guilty of four charges -- simple assault, resisting arrest, fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, and accident involving damage -- and sentenced to one and a quarter to four years in prison.
In March of this year, Leone filed a civil suit in federal court against the Borough of Towanda, Pennsylvania State Police, and the five officers who attacked him. He alleges his civil rights were violated and that the officers used excessive force. His parents say he was denied medical attention.
"The paramount point is, he got beat within an inch of his life," says Frank Leone, Robert's father.
District Attorney Daniel Barrett says the video does not show real evidence of the whole situation.
The other people that may have opinions on the evidence weren't there. They can have whatever opinions they want. But that's why we have courtrooms here and not just plazas out front.
A Connecticut mom has filed a police report after she saw video footage of her toddler's daycare teacher getting into an argument him. The video shows Sleeping Giant Daycare teacher Lindsay Cavallaro taunting 3-year-old Michael Reese after Reese told her to "go to the moon":
News flash, sweetheart. I don't really like you either 'cause you throw toys.
Reese said he would throw her phone, to which Cavallaro responded:
Do it. Go ahead. No balls. Oh you're a tough guy. Hey boss, show me your nine.
"'It got into someone's hands who actually saw the video and was like, wait a minute, I recognize whose son this is and that's when they forwarded it to me and said 'I need you to see this,'" she said. "When I saw my son's face it was just unbelievable, you know. He's everything to me.
"He doesn't deserve it. No child deserves it and especially not mine."
