Teen Pours Acid On Boyfriend’s Penis For Releasing Sex Tape On The Internet

When 25-year-old Humphrey Khoza of South Africa made the douchey decision to film himself having sex with his underage 17-year-old girlfriend without her knowledge and then posted it on the internet, he probably figured he'd get off unscathed.

Frisky Rant: It’s Not Offensive To Suggest That People Help Protect Themselves From Crime

The University of Wisconsin Madison Police Department posted an article this week about safety tips on campus and, of course, people are manufacturing reasons to get mad about it.

Trayvon Martin’s Mom Writes Open Letter To Michael Brown’s Family

I hate that you and your family must join this exclusive yet growing group of parents and relatives who have lost loved ones to senseless gun violence.

Remember when two teenaged boys from Steubenville High School were sentenced for sexual assaulting a 16-year-old girl and all CNN could do was mourn about how these two boys' lives were "destroyed"?

It has the elements of so many sexual assault allegations before it: fraternity members, a lot of alcohol, football players, freshman girls.
