The U.K.'s High Court has ruled that Tony Nicklinson, the U.K. man with locked-in syndrome who says his life is "dull, miserable, demeaning, undignified, and intolerable," does not have the right to die.

The court blatantly ignored Oregon's Death with Dignity Act in its ruling, saying that there was no precedent for assisted dying anywhere in the world:

It is not for the court to decide whether the law on assisted dying should be changed and, if so, what safeguards should be put in place. Under our system of government these are matters for Parliament to decide... not for the court on the facts of an individual case or cases.

Nicklinson, "devastated," likely will appeal to the Supreme Court:

I thought that if the court saw me as I am, utterly miserable with my life, powerless to do anything about it because of my disability then the judges would accept my reasoning that I do not want to carry on and should be able to have a dignified death. ...

Judges, like politicians, are happiest when they can avoid confronting the real issues and this judgment is not an exception to this rule… this means yet another period of physical discomfort, misery and mental anguish while we find out who controls my life -- me or the state.

How's this for horrific -- a Delaware pediatrician who wrote a book about kids who've had near-death experiences has been charged with "waterboarding" his 11-year-old daughter.

The girl told police that her father, Dr. Melvin L. Morse, 58, would hold her face under a running faucet so the water would shoot up her nose.

The "waterboarding" happened at least four times in two years. The girl's mother, Pauline Morse, 40, did nothing to intervene and also has been charged, police said.

The girl told police she "could never understand what she did to be punished" and felt scared, according to court documents. She also said her father told her that "she could go five minutes without brain damage."

A review of Morse's book, which he promoted on The Larry King ShowOprah, and 20/20, says that "In hundreds of interviews with children who had once been declared clinically dead, Dr. Morse found that children too young to have absorbed our adult views and ideas of death, share first-hand accounts of out-of-body travel, telepathic communication and encounters with dead friends and relatives."

The girl and her 5-year-old sister are in the care of Delaware child protective services.

A Jackson, Mississippi couple was forced into a change of venue for their recent nuptials after members of their predominantly white church objected to the ceremony of the black bride and groom. Pastor Stan Weatherford of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs suggested the relocation after a small group of dissenters -- estimated around five or six -- made their opinions known about Charles and Te'Andrea Wilson's celebration:

I didn't want to have a controversy within the church, and I didn't want a controversy to affect the wedding of Charles and Te'Andrea. I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day.

Weatherford performed the ceremony at another church, but the situation isn't sitting well with other members of the congregation, who say they were completely unaware of the situation. Member Casey Kitchens shared her thoughts:

This is a small, small group of people who made a terrible decision. I'm just ashamed right now that my church would do that. I can't fathom why. How unfair. How unjust. It's just wrong.

YouTube musician Mike Lombardo -- a Berklee College of Music grad whose piano rock ballads and tutorials earned him 200,000 subscribers -- has been arrested by the FBI for encouraging minors to send him explicit photos and videos of themselves masturbating.

FBI Agent Alix Skelton said the investigation began after a complaint alleged Lombardo was planning to have sex with a 15-year-old girl in December 2011. The FBI spoke to two other girls, both 17, who told agents that they had exchanged sexually explicit photos and videos with Lombardo.

"All three victims advised that they 'met' Lombardo online because they were fans of his music," Skelton wrote.

According to Skelton, one victim was 14 "when she began sending nude images and videos of herself to Lombardo via Skype." Skelton said the teen said that Lombardo asked her if she "liked taking orders" and would ask the girl to "strip until she was completely nude." Once she was naked, Lombardo would allegedly direct the child to masturbate.

Lombardo has been charged on four different counts. If convicted, he could spend anywhere from five to 100 years in prison.

(Heads up -- video is graphic.)

Or maybe this story is all kinds of right.

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.

Now the criminally dumb Calicoe is the focus of a police investigation -- as the top commenter on the video puts it: "You just made the front page of reddit. You, sir, are f**ked."

Calicoe is taking the moral highground via Twitter: "If u find a video of me "FIGHTING DOGS" PLEEEEZE LET ME KNO"

brutal beating larry hohol pennsylvania police robert leone rodney king this is all kinds of wron This Is All Kinds Of Wrong - 6399152640

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.

The author, Larry Hohal, believes the police brutality against 31-year-old Robert Leone to be "worse [than] the Rodney King episode in many, many ways." And his one-man campaign to get the video circulated as widely as possible is picking up steam: protesters rallied in Pennsylvania last week in a call for justice for Leone.

"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.

Tyesha Reese received the video via email.

"'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."

Teaching can be quite the thankless job, especially when faced with a 6-year-old bully day in and day out.

But one San Antonio, TX, kindergarten teacher turned her revenge fantasy into reality in May, when she had her class of 24 line up and take turns hitting the class bully, raining repeated blows to Aidan Neely's head, face, and back.

"The teacher told him not to tell us," Aidan's mom said.

When news of the creative discipline finally reached the principal -- and school parents -- last week, the teacher was fired. Now Aidan's mom is on a mission to make sure she's never again allowed in a classroom.

Kameron Slade, a fifth-grader from Queens, NY, was scheduled to deliver a speech as part of a school-wide competition at PS 195. But when the principal learned Kameron's speech was about same-sex marriage, he was ordered to choose a new topic or lose the opportunity to speak.

From the banned speech:

Some people are for same-gender marriage, while others are against it. Like President Obama, I believe that all people should have the right to marry whoever they want. Marriage is about love, support, and commitment. So who are we to judge? If we judge people like this, this is a form of prejudice. We must learn to accept all differences. ... My mom is very open to me about same-gender marriage. However, some adults may feel uncomfortable and think it's inappropriate to talk about this to children. I think adults must realize that as children get older, they become aware of these mature issues that are going on in the world. If children read or watch the news, they can learn about things like same-gender marriage, so what's the point in trying to hide it? In conclusion, I hope that everyone understands how important it is to respect everyone for who they are. Same-gender marriage is becoming more popular. I believe that same-gender marriage should be accepted worldwide and that parents and teachers should start to discuss these issues without shame to their children.

An elected member of the Imperial Irrigation District of California's Imperial Valley is under investigation after he was caught on camera striking his stepson with a belt during a game of backyard catch.

Anthony Sanchez has not been charged with anything and reportedly is cooperating with authorities.

"What's happening in the context of the video itself is certainly disturbing," said Ryan Childers, Sanchez's attorney. "We recognize that. But we need to let the Sheriff's Office have time to fully investigate the incident so all the facts can come to light."

The neighbor, Oscar Lopez, initially didn't start taping because he believes in a father's right to discipline his kid. But when "it got out of line," he hit record.

This is not just some drunk down the street. This is a guy in leadership here. He is supposed to be representing the people of District 5... I'm happy that he's been identified, and maybe they don't prosecute him. Maybe he's not found guilty, but at least it got out and somebody knows.

In the only appropriate response to last week's incident in Miami where one man was caught eating another man's face, notorious YouTube assclown Vitaly Zdorovetskiy dressed up as a zombie and terrorized the city's residents.

Thankfully, he went to the trouble of adding a disclaimer to his video: "Very Dangerous Prank! Almost Got Shot at 2:00! DO NOT TRY IT!"

In related news, Ronald Poppo, the homeless man who had his face eaten off, remains in critical condition.
