An as-yet unnamed Boyton Beach, Florida, police officer has been placed on administrative duty after he was caught on camera kicking the legs out from under a handcuffed 13-year-old for “no reason,” and now the child’s parents are planning to file a formal complaint. Kevens Jean Baptiste, 13, was riding the bus to school last Thursday, when he decided to open his window to get some air. Baptiste explained that his asthma was acting up after another classmate sprayed perfume, making it hard for him to breathe. “I was coughing, and my face was turning red and stuff,” Baptise told NBCMiami. “So, I just let down my window.”
When Baptiste refused to comply with the bus driver’s orders to put up his window, the driver pulled over and called the police, who removed Baptiste from the bus and handcuffed him. At least two students on the bus were filming the incident on their cellphones and captured one of the responding officers forcefully grabbing Jean Baptiste by the torso and neck, dragging him to the grass, prompting one child to exclain, “They’ve got Kevens in a choke hold!” In a second, even more disturbing video (above), an officer is seen swiftly approaching Jean Baptiste, kicking his legs out from under him, sending the teen to the ground.
“They can’t do that!” a child on the bus is heard yelling. “I recorded it!” yelled another. Keep reading »

There’s a disturbing buzz building in Nashville right now. It’s reminiscent of the sound of the T-Rex approaching in “Jurassic Park.” At first, it’s just a faint vibration, then a loud, sickening THUMP, then a deafening roar, and suddenly you’re stuck between its jaws, being eaten alive, and there’s nothing you can do about it. The advancing predator I’m referring to in this case, though, isn’t a dinosaur; it’s a country song called, “Donkey.” Keep reading »
“I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy.”
Croatian farmer Zoran Paparic, describing his reaction to this 8-legged goat that was born on his farm recently. My response would have been more along the lines of, “WHAT THE FUUUUUUUCCCKKKKK?!??!!” but hey, to each his own. After examining the octo-goat, vets determined that the extra legs belonged to an underdeveloped twin that hadn’t fully separated. It is unknown whether or not the newborn will survive longer than a few days, but Amelia is rooting for it, according to this message she just sent me: “I really want the octo-goat to survive so it can master galloping around on eight legs.” [You can do it buddy!!! -- Amelia] How’s that for a visual? My stomach hurts. I’m scared. I’m signing off the internet forever. [Mirror]

Birthday celebrations sure have changed since I was a kid: a middle school teacher in Texas has been arrested for performing a lap dance for her 15-year-old student on his birthday.
Felicia Smith, 42, allegedly gave a four-minute, full-contact lap dance in February to the unnamed boy in front of other students in the classroom. The boy told police that he sat in a chair next to her desk while music played, she “moved back and forth on his crotch and then touched him all over his body” and he spanked her butt several times. She also reportedly sank down to her knees and put her head between his legs. At the end, Smith allegedly told the boy, “I love you, baby. Happy birthday.” First Coast News reports that video exists of the whole incident. Keep reading »
