“What goes around, comes around,” has never been truer after watching the latest satisfying viral video posted on LiveLeak.com.
In an awesome example of karma, the video, said to be in Mexico, shows a man brutally beating his helpless dog on the street in broad daylight. A random bystander captured the video to show the cruelty of the man towards the animal.
After a few swings, the man appears to lose his balance and suddenly falls into the street, face first. As the man attempts to get himself back up, the dog realizes that it can make an escape, so it immediately runs away without hesitation. The man finally gets up, and as the video ends, he can be seen limping in the direction of the abused dog, clearly trying to chase it down.
Since being posted just one day ago, the video has already garnered over 79,000 views on LiveLeak, and commenters seem to all be in agreement that the man got what he deserved.
“Some people are just disgusting, and should never own animals,” said user AlphaNuma.
Take a look at the video below.
A Long Island man is facing shocking charges after authorities say he had sex with a dog and then beat it with a baseball bat.
26-year-old Steven Errante of Dix Hills has been charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, petit larceny, and sexual misconduct. The petit larceny charge has been presented because Errante allegedly stole the dog from a pen behind a church near his home.
The dog suffered a severe skull injury, among other serious ones, and sadly had to be euthanized days later.
Errante pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and is being held on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. A psychiatric evaluation has also been ordered to see if the man is mentally unstable.
A Maryland official at the National Security Agency has officially been charged with beating his 3-year-old adopted son to death.
36-year-old Brian Patrick O' Callaghan of Damascus, Maryland was arrested on February 16. According to reports, O’Callaghan, who was chief of the NSA’s Korea division, took his adopted Korean son Hyunsu O' Callaghan to the emergency room on February 1 because he was unresponsive. Hyunsu died two days later, and doctors said he died of injuries consistent with being beaten.
"These types of injuries are consistent with acute head trauma and Brian O'Callaghan could not provide an explanation that would cause this type of medical distress to Hyunsu," it said in the medical documents.
O’Callaghan told police that his son had fallen in the bathtub on January 31 and that he became unresponsive the next day, ultimately leading to his death. The charges against him, however, contradict these claims and allege that O’Callaghan beat his son to death.
"The injuries to this child were catastrophic injuries," said State's Attorney John McCarthy. "I think the evidence supports the charges that were brought."
The NSA official’s lawyer Steve McCool says that the allegations against him are false and that the truth will come out during the trial.
"When all the evidence is presented in this case, we're all gonna know the truth, which is this was a terrible, terrible tragedy and not a crime," said McCool.
O’Callaghan’s grandfather William Rose echoes McCool’s sentiments, maintaining that his grandson is completely innocent.
"I find it impossible to believe that he's been indicted for murder because he's worked so hard to get this baby," said Rose to the Washington Post. "He was so loving with him. He's been so wonderful with his other child. I've never seen him do anything that would make me believe he is capable of that."
O’Callaghan has officially been charged in the young boy’s death and is currently being held without bond.
Two men were sentenced to jail after brutally beating and severely injuring a San Francisco Giants fan outside of the Los Angeles Dodgers stadium nearly three years ago.
45-year-old Giants fan Bryan Stow was left with devastating, lifelong injuries that will require him round-the-clock care for the rest of his life. Stow, a paramedic and father of two, was attending a game at the Dodgers stadium when Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, both Dodgers fans, chased Stow down, sucker punched him, and brutally beat him until he was unconscious.
"The sport of baseball pales compared to this action," said Stow’s father David during court proceedings. “What you both did in the evening in the dark at Dodger Stadium was cowardly. We hold no hate against you, but we despise you. Bryan has a lifetime of pain, therapy and hard work daily that he must endure. He will strive to persevere.”
Sanchez, 31, has been sentenced to eight years in prison while Norwood, 33, has been sentenced to four. Superior Court Judge George Lomeli scolded the two men, who were seemingly unremorseful for their actions.
"You are the biggest nightmare for individuals who attend public events,” said Judge Lomeli.
Shortly after their arrest in 2011, Sanchez and Norwood were secretly recorded having a conversation about the incident in a cell at prison.
"It's all my fault," said Sanchez.
"I'm gonna fry regardless, bro," Norwood responded. "They pretty much got it. They got it, bro. I don't get how...we are the bad guys because something misfortunate happened to, you know, their side."
The Stow family says they are currently pursuing a civil suit against the Los Angeles Dodgers for provided little security at the stadium.
A deaf California man is suing police in Hawthorne after he was tasered while attempting to tell them that he couldn’t hear by using sign language.
According to reports, Jonathan Meister was retrieving boxes he left at a friend’s house when a suspicious neighbor thought he was breaking in and called the police.
When officers arrived, they found Meister with the boxes and ordered him to stop loading them into his car. Obviously, Meister was unable to hear what the officers were telling him to do, so when one of them grabbed his hand, he tried to sign to them that he was deaf.
The officers took Meister’s signing as resistance, so they hit him with their fists and kicked him until they were able to force him to the ground. Once they had him on the ground, one of the officers reportedly shot Meister with the taser twice before shooting him with it again in the stomach.
“Because he is deaf, Mr. Meister depends on using his hands while facing a person to communicate,” describes the lawsuit. "The officers’ sudden aggression, which both caused pain and interfered with his ability to communicate, caused Mr. Meister reflexively to pull his hands away, hop back over the fence and step toward the gate to create some space so that he could communicate.”
The officers continued to beat Meister until he was knocked unconscious, and only then was he brought to the hospital. Meister was shockingly charged with assaulting the officers, but after the truth came out later, those charges were dropped.
Now, the Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness has filed the lawsuit on behalf of Meister in the wake of the ordeal.
“We’re really concerned about the problem of law enforcement and people who are deaf,” said Paula Pearlman, Meister’s lawyer. “He wasn’t doing anything other than trying to get away from people who were hurting him.”
The charges filed are specifically against the four officers who were involved in the assault. Hawthorne police have not yet commented on the case.
A 16-year-old boy was arrested after his 37-year-old mother was found dead in their Washington state home, and after initially saying that he discovered her dead when he got home from school, the teen has now admitted to beating her to death with a dumbbell.
Brad George initially played the part of a grieving son and said that he had no idea how the death happened. He was the one that called 911 and told police that it looked like someone had broken into their home.
“She has supported me my whole life. She always knew what was best for us. I don’t know who could have done this,” he said about his adopted mother Georgina Latshaw before being arrested. “This doesn’t feel real, this all feels fake.”
George had been adopted 10 years earlier by Latshaw and has reportedly suffered from mental illness for some time. Police realized that he may not be telling the truth when they discovered the dumbbell and bloodstained clothes in his bedroom.
The teenager is being held on $500,000 bail and will reportedly be charged as an adult for the murder.
An incident at a Detroit mall between a 24-year-old man and the mall’s security guards resulted in his death earlier this week.
It all started on Monday when 24-year-old McKenzie Cochran was standing outside of jewelry store at the mall and was approached by security guards who thought he looked suspicious. Cochran was asked to leave, and he did, but the next day, he returned to the same spot near the store enraged.
According to reports, the owner of the jewelry store approached Cochran and asked him what was wrong. Cochran reportedly said he wanted to kill someone, and that’s when security guards again became involved. Allegedly fearing for their safety, the guards pepper-sprayed Cochran and placed him in hand cuffs. A bystander captured the ordeal on cell phone video.
According to Cochran’s family’s attorney Gerald Thurswell, Cochran was “saying he couldn’t breathe and they held him down until he died.”
“You have a person on the ground, you have your knee on his back. You essentially are chiding the man when he’s asking to breathe,” said Ron Scott of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality. “Essentially, this was barbaric, odious and despicable. It’s one of the worst examples I’ve ever seen of inhumanity and a lack of professionalism in that process. From this video, it appears to me there was criminal culpability.”
“Security guards are not police officers,” continued Scott. “They are supposed to call law enforcement officials as necessary, but they are not supposed to engage in activity which enhances the possibility of escalation of violence. There was no basis with three individuals standing over one person, who was detained, to actually engage in this kind of barbaric activity. The citizens should be protected. This has happened to young people, especially to young African American people, quite a bit at Northland Mall and the mall needs to look at cleaning up its act and changing its behavior in terms of how they treat young people and people who may have mental illness.”
Cochran was pronounced dead at the hospital not long after the incident. An autopsy is currently being conducted, and although no charges have yet to be filed, Cochran’s family has hired an attorney.
A young Missouri couple was fast asleep in their home around 3 a.m. when they were suddenly woken up by the sound of an intruder in their home. The wife, Vanessa Williams, decided to go see what was happening, and that’s when she discovered 26-year-old Joseph Stein stumbling through their home seemingly unaware of what he was doing.
“He just walked through the hallway,” described Williams to KY3 News. “My son's bedroom was right on the left, he passed it and, as he flipped on my daughter's light, I came around the corner of the door, came face to face with him and I said, 'What are you doing in here?'”
"My husband jumped out of bed and was hitting the guy and he knocked him out in the first punch," continued Williams. “Typically we do have a firearm by the bedside but since gun season finished up it wasn't there so luckily for the gentleman who broke in that saved his life.”
Police were called to the home and once they arrived, the immediately arrested Stein.
“Once the police arrived, the suspect was arrested,” explained Lebanon Police Detective Tim Early. “He was later charged through the Laclede County prosecutor's office and is currently in the Laclede County Jail.”
Police say it appears that Stein was drunk and thought he was in his own home. Williams says that moving forward, her family will make sure their home is more secure.
"I don't feel unsafe in my home and I'm not going to let some creep make me feel that way,” said Williams, “but I am going to be more attentive to making sure doors are locked when we go to bed or when we're going to be away.”
Detective Early says that although state laws protect people who use a firearm to stop intruders in their home, it may have been a much worse situation if this family had done so.
"There are laws out there that would protect you and protect your property but I also think that sometimes there's some thin lines that you probably need to watch yourself," said Early.
Stein walked away with a few cuts and cruises, but he is facing a second-degree trespassing charge.
A 23-year-old woman was beaten to death at a nightclub in California, and now, police say that one suspect has been arrested.
Kim Pham is currently brain dead but remains on life support at a Santa Ana hospital after the vicious beating on Saturday.
“People have come forward that have provided us with videos and have come in and provided statements that have given detectives enough information to believe that this person was involved in at least the physical part of this altercation,” said Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna of the detained suspect. Police say they are currently searching for four other suspects, two men and two women, who were seen along with the detailed suspect beating Pham to death.
According to reports, Pham was waiting outside of a nightclub with friends when she got into an argument with a woman. The group that the woman was with stepped in, and that’s when the brutal beating occurred.
“Two or three of the female suspects knocked her to the ground, were physically assaulting her and kicking her, and they fled the scene,” said Bertagna.
Pham’s sister reportedly posted on Facebook that he sister had been murdered, but neither the police nor hospital officials have confirmed that she’s been taken off life support.
“I can't believe something like this would happen to someone, especially my cousin,” said relative Kathleen Trinh. “She was always a fun loving person. She has a bubbly personality. Anyone that's around her is always happy, she has an uplifting spirit.”
Police are actively investigating this gruesome attack and are asking the public for help finding the remaining suspects.
Portland Pimp Suing Nike For $100 Million After Jordans Considered Dangerous Weapon In Brutal Beating Of John
Portland Pimp Sirgiorgiro Clardy, 26, is suing Nike for $100 million and claiming the shoe manufacturer is partially responsible for the 100-year prison sentence he is serving.
Clardy was found guilty of second-degree assault in 2013 for using his Jordans, considered a dangerous weapon, in a brutal beating of a john. He repeatedly stomped the john's face with his Jordans when the man tried to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy's prostitute in June 2012, reports Oregon Live. The john required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose.
The claim against Nike by Clardy states that Nike should have placed a label in Jordan shoes, warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon.
"Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be upheld by potentially dangerous product ..." Clardy wrote in his complaint reports Huffington Post. "Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering."
Clardy was also found guilty of robbing the john and beating the 18-year-old woman working as a prostitute for him under force. Her beating was so bad she bled from her ears.
A Multnomah County judge has been asked by Clardy to order Nike to affix a warning label to all of their "potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise."
Oregon Live states that Oregon defendants have been convicted for use of dangerous weapons ranging from boots, rope, a phone receiver, scalding hot water, and HIV-infected blood. The dangerous weapon classification can lead to longer prison sentences upon conviction.
Nike has yet to receive a copy of the suit, but will shortly, giving them the opportunity to respond.
