In NYC, Occupy Wall Street protesters were taunting police officers with "peaceful" donuts after they were evicted from Union Square park. Hilarity ensues.
The family of a man who was killed during a home invasion and robbery in Boston two years ago, were outraged when a jury found the shooter not guilty. The jury also acquitted the man who was accused of being the getaway driver for the killer. After a mistrial was declared in the case of Dwayne Moore, prosecutors vowed to retry the man who allegedly killed four people -- including a toddler and his young mother -- and grievously wounded a fifth person in September 2010. Dwayne and accomplice Edward Washington were accused of robbing the home of Simba Martin, 21, then executing him, along with his girlfriend, Eyanna Flonory, 21; her son, Amanihotep Smith, 2; and Levaughn Washum-Garrison, 22, who was staying at Martin’s home that night. A fifth person, Marcus Hurd, was shot in the head but survived and is now paralyzed. He testified during the trial, but was never able to identify his attackers. The victims' families were outraged and dragged out of the courtroom kicking and screaming obscenities.

The law has finally caught with 24-year-old Jesse Byrd, who frequently left his 3-year-old daughter home alone while he went to work. Neighbors saw the girl wandering the street at 9pm and called police. Inside the home, investigators found a marijuana pipe and empty bottles of beer. The child was taken away and Jesse, who told police he left the girl home alone because he couldn't find a babysitter, was arrested and charged with child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Meanwhile, in Houston, members of The Black Panther Party and National Black United Front have been protesting in front of the Houston courthouse to protest police brutality. They've been there for 60 weeks. (Sidebar: According to this lady, 80% of the police brutality cases filed in Houston are filed by police officers against their colleagues.) They'll be at the courthouse for another 60 weeks -- or however long it takes -- until the Mayor and police department create a civilian review board to sift through the cases and prosecute the abusive officers. Yeah, good luck with that.
↪ You know what? I just can't! Can. Not! In a series of YouTube videos, folks are simulating sex with various landmarks in Trondheim, Norway. This is why the Internet was invented.

We are very fond of the city of Trondheim, as you can probably tell.”)
