“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 disturbing viral video out of Philadelphia has launched an investigation by police and the Department of Human Services.
The four and a half minute video shows a woman sitting on a Philadelphia SEPTA bus across from a young girl that appears to be her daughter. For the entire length of the clip, the woman repeatedly nods off and has a completely blank stare on her face while her young daughter attempts to prop her head up.
“Mama,” the concerned child says. “Mama!”
At one point the woman quickly yells something, but she continues to nod off.
The video was uploaded by user John Warren, and since being posted, it has already garnered almost 69,000 shares on Facebook and close to 500,000 views on YouTube. Many commenters expressed outrage towards the mother for what appears to be physical effects of drug use, while others bash the fellow people riding the bus for doing nothing about it. SEPTA Police Chief Tom Nestel echoes those same sentiments.
"When you have a person doing the 'heroin nod' and a little girl is trying to hold her head up, that's horrifying," said Nestel. "There's very little reason why 15 calls to 911 weren't received. I don't think there's anyone who can watch that and say, 'Ah, that's a shame,' and just walk away."
The woman’s identity has not been publicly revealed, but reports claim that both the Philadelphia police and the DHS are conducting an investigation. In the meantime, Philadelphia Police spokesman Lt. John Stanford says that this should teach people to speak up when they see something like this happen.
"But you can still give us a call, or notify the bus driver, or the conductor if you're on a train," advises Stanford. “It's disturbing to see that little girl. She can't be more than 8 or 9 years old."
DHS spokeswoman Alicia Taylor says that they are trying to verify the identity of the woman in question while they continue to get important feedback from people online.
“Our Facebook page has gotten a lot of comments from people who are asking us to do something,” said Taylor. “It’s sad that people stood by and nobody reported this when it happened. Child abuse is a community problem. If you see something, you have to say something. People sat by on the bus, and no one called police, and no one called us.”
A video produced by the Human Rights Watch organization shows just how damaging Russia’s culture of homophobia is right now.
One vigilante group in particular, Occupy Pedophilia, was focused on in the video. Masquerading as a pro-children activist group, Occupy Pedophelia identifies and assaults Russians they believe are gay. They often set up faux dates with gay men, only to berate and beat the men on film once they arrive.
HRW researcher Tanya Cooper spoke about the group's tactics and how the group masquerades as an anti-pedophelia organization to gain protection under Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law.
Cooper said the group “essentially uses the pretext of protecting children, of fighting pedophilia, to harass and attack gay people.”
"They film all these proceedings, and then post them on social networks like YouTube to humiliate the victim," Cooper said of the group’s assaults on LGBT Russians.
As Russian LGBT Network chairman Igor Kochetkov points out, Russia’s current attitude and legislation regarding homosexuality lets groups like Occupy Pedophilia assault LGBT citizens with no fear of legal retribution.
The video shows one victim of Occupy Pedophilia on his knees saying, “I’m sorry…I’m guilty.”
“Do you agree that we should kill you?” one of the vigilantes asks.
“I suppose that’s my fate,” the victim answers.
Stories like this, several of which are featured in the video, continue to pour in from across Russia. Through a personal story, one activist summed up Russian law enforcement’s reaction to assaults on gay people.
“When I went to police to submit a claim, the officers at the station just said ‘That’s all right, you’re gay, so it’s normal that you were attacked,'" the activist said. "'Why would you need to submit a complaint against someone?’”
Here is HRW's video:
As HRW points out, Russia has seen an increase in violence towards LGBT residents in direct correlation with the passing of the federal law forbidding “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors.”
While the bill does not explicitly say what “nontraditional” means, the term is a colloquial one used in Russian to mean "gay."
“The discriminatory impact of the anti-LGBT law and hateful language on state television have created a climate of intolerance against the Russian LGBT community,” Cooper said. “Russian leaders should denounce, not feed, homophobic hysteria, or the Kremlin’s silence will be taken as condoning the violence.”
A 19-year-old factory worker is facing serious charges after his girlfriend discovered a video of him having sex with her dog on his cell phone.
Wayne Bryson fully admitted to having sex with his girlfriend’s Staffordshire bull terrier, and while in court last month, he pleaded guilty to the charge against him.
In addition to being arrested for sexual penetration with an animal, Bryson was caught with 315 grams of marijuana, which he fully admitted to having.
Sentencing is currently set for March 5, and in the meantime, Bryson has been released on bail until he learns his fate. He is not allowed any contact with animals while he is out. Bryson could not offer a reason as to why he had sex with the dog and claims that it was the first time and only he had ever done it. He could serve up to two years in jail for the offense.
Abie Kyle Ikhinmwin, 25, was waiting for the bus when her day took a turn for the strange.
Ikhinmwin, a criminal justice student at the University of Texas at San Antonio, was taking pictures of a police speed trap along Highway 281 while waiting for the bus to go to the grocery store.
“I put it on Facebook. I told my friends, 'This is where our funding is going, straight into hard police work,'" Ikhinmwin told KENS 5.
With her cellphone out she captured what happened next.
According to Ikhinmwin, a police officer approached and told her to move her bike because she was being a traffic hazard.
Ikhinmwin complied with the police officer’s request by placing her bike inside the curb at the bus stop.
But the officer did not let up, and the entire altercation was caught on video via Ikhinmwin’s cellphone.
“What’s the traffic violation? I’m 12 inches from the curb. Am I not 12 inches within the curb?“
“No m’aam. It’s not the curb.”
“OK. What is it?”
“Let me see some ID, please. Let me see some ID.”
Without an explanation, Ikhinmwin continues on with the police officer.
“You can’t just arrest me for sitting at a bus stop.”
“I don’t want to hurt you,” the officer responds. “M’aam, you’re going to go to jail, that’s what's going to happen. You’re already going to jail.”
“OK. I’m recording this. Keep talking.”
Before long, Ikhinmwin claims she was dragged by her hair into a squad car, and suffered bruises that kept her out of school for a week.
“I’ve never been so dehumanized in my life,” Ikhinmwin said.
Her bike was confiscated, along with her computer and school books.
While in the squad car, Ikhinmwin was warned that should she press charges against the officer she would never see her belongings again.
Ikhinmwin pressed charges anyway.
Sgt. Javier Salazar says the San Antonio Police Department views the video with a different perspective.
"I think there was somebody there that certainly seemed to be failing to obey the police officer's orders," Salazar said.
Ikhinmwin was cited with failure to obey a police officer and impeding traffic. She arrested on a charge of failure to provide identification to a police officer.
The SAPD believes the video shows the officer giving a lawful order, but is investigating the case as is routine when a complaint is filed.
Two teenagers are in police custody after a video of one boy abusing a dog was posted on Facebook and quickly went viral.
The video, posted by Facebook user Coats Keshawn, shows a teenage boy body slamming a puppy multiple times before repeatedly punching it and restraining it. The person capturing the incident on camera can be heard laughing while the brutal animal abuse takes place.
“Yeah, I’m shocked about what happened because you know I didn’t think my son could do something like that, no way,” said the mother of one of the boys to Fox 2 News.
Since being posted on Facebook, the video has gotten over 4,000 shares and has spread across social media like wildfire. Both boys, the one behind the camera and the one actually abusing the dog, have now been arrested by St. Louis County police and are facing charges of animal abuse. Their cases have been turned over to Family Court because both boys are juveniles.
The puppy, said to be six or seven months old, has been seized by animal control and is being examined to see if she sustained any injuries. The dog will likely be put up for adoption.
An unidentified man filmed officers from the Baltimore County Police Department arresting two people in the middle of a street on Sunday night in Towson, Md.
On his video (below), the cameraman is clearly several feet from the arrests and is not interfering, but an unidentified police officer sees the camera and quickly walks over and harasses the man.
“Get out of my face,” the police officer tells the cameraman, noted PhotographyisNotaCrime.com.
Seconds later, more police approach the cameraman and demand that he leave the area.
“Get the hell out of here!” a second police officer yells. “You diverted my attention!”
The second officer then begins pushing him down the street. The cameraman asks repeatedly what law he has violated but doesn't get an answer.
“We’re not f—— around, do you understand?" a third police officer yelled at the man. "Walk away and shut your f----- mouth or you’re going to jail.”
At one point, the cameraman’s arm was reportedly twisted behind his back by a police officer.
“I thought I had freedom of speech?” asked the cameraman.
“You don’t, you just lost it,” the police officer claimed.
However, U.S. courts have repeatedly upheld the right of the public to film the police as long people do not interfere in police work.
In 2011, the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Boston lawyer Simon Glik was within his rights to film police in public on his cell phone, reported WBUR.
In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to overturn a ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal that blocked an Illinois law banning the recording of police, noted The Huffington Post.
After this video went viral, the Baltimore County Police asked the cameraman to come forward to aid in their internal investigation of the incident, reports WBAL.
The police department claims it supports the rights of citizens to film officers.
Whoever said dog was “man’s best friend” clearly hasn’t met the furry companion seen in the latest sidesplitting video from Break.com.
The viral video shows a man attempting to touch his pregnant wife’s belly, and every time he goes to place his hand on her, their dog attacks him. The overprotective k-9 angrily barks at the man and tries to bite his hand every single time, without fail.
“Baby’s got his own protector,” yells the man behind the camera.
Since being posted on Break.com yesterday, the video has already gotten almost 972,000 views. Take a look at the hilarious video below!
A video has surfaced showing a young Michigan boy with Asperger Syndrome stuck in a chair at school. Now that it has been revealed that the boy’s teacher was the one that captured the footage on her cell phone, she is now facing tenure charges and could be fired.
The video shows the unidentified 10-year-old boy with special needs stuck in a chair while the teacher films and taunts him. At one point, a male voice is heard in the background also teasing the boy, and it’s been revealed that the voice belongs to the school principal Michael Ellis. The teacher Nicole McVey emailed the video to her colleagues, and eventually, school administrators saw it. Ellis wound up resigning as principal, and now, McVey may be fired.
"You hear of bullying by other students and other kids in class, I have had cases like this before, but I have never had a case with teachers and administrators bullying," said Patrick Greenfelder, the attorney representing the boy’s family.
McVey asks the boy if he wants to be tasered while he is struggling to figure out a way to squeeze out of the chair, and this comment outraged many. Other parents who defend her, however, say that the term “taser” refers to taking the two pointer fingers and moving them in a tickling motion along the child’s side in a playful way in order to get the child to focus. Still, the boy’s parents are not happy with the use of that phrase, especially in a stressful situation like that.
In the video, when McVey tells the boy that maintenance is on their way to get him out, Principal Ellis’s voice can be heard saying, “It’s not really an emergency in their book.”
Many people in the Goodrich community have been quick to defend McVey’s actions and say that she meant to harm.
"I know she is supported by the community, the other teachers, the staff, I have learned a lot from her and I support her fully," said Leanne Ruediger, a substitute teacher at the school. “I believe that Nicole's intentions and motivations are always in the right place.”
The boy’s parents say they are discouraged by the amount of negative comments their child has received as a result of the incident, saying that he, "is now labeled as a disturbance to the other ‘normal’ children in his class. Our son did nothing wrong, but yet this seems to be another case of blaming the victim."
The school board has not commented on this matter or where they are at with filing tenure charges against McVey.
YouTube sensation Kid President is at it again.
Kid President – also known as 10-year old Robby Novak – has been a busy little guy since achieving internet stardom last year. He’s met the president, been named a TED inspirational speaker, and interviewed the likes of Beyonce, Andrew WK, and Josh Groban.
He jokingly calls himself “the voice of a generation.” Given what he’s done so far in life, he might be on to something. But the Kid President didn’t get to where he is today without some good advice from those around him. A recent video of his wants to share some of that help.
In collaboration with YouTube channel SoulPancake, Kid President put out a video titled “Kid President’s Letter To A Person On Their First Day Here.” The video is full of heartwarming advice from this wise-beyond-his-years boy to newborns everywhere.
He explains the phenomenon of breathing, the odd tradition of high fives (“high-fives are like hitting someone who is your friend”), the reality of good days and bad days, and much more. He encourages everyone to take lots of “brain pictures” as they journey through this thing called life.
This is Kid President at his best. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting this charming young man yet, prepare to be enamored:
