The Canadiens opened their Sunday game against the Tampa Bay Lightning with one of the coolest pregame intros you’ll ever see, complete with awesome 3D graphics, legendary moments from past games projected on the ice, and a torch bearing ceremony that leaves the ice (digitally) ablaze.
I’ve witnessed some sweet pregame intros, but definitely never anything like this.
Check it out:
If the Habs are trying to intimidate opponents with the intro, it seems to be working. They just sent the Lightning home packing after a 4-0 series sweep in round one of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The sweep is the first for the Canadiens in the playoffs since 1993, which just so happens to be the last time they won the Cup.
A New York City bus passenger was beat up this weekend after he wouldn’t stop threatening and insulting an elderly couple on a bus. Footage from the incident was posted on the web yesterday and has already been viewed almost 80,000 times.
In the video, the instigator is heard yelling at the old couple.
“F***in bitch,” he says. “You suck my d*** bitch. Yeah, call 911 bitch. F*** you bitch.”
As the obnoxious man approaches the couple, the elderly man stands up to defend himself and his companion. When the younger man shoves the older passenger, a group of witnesses step in and take action. They punch and hit the man repeatedly and force him off the bus.
Lesson learned: Don’t mess with the elderly. Strangers care about them more than they care about you.
Check out the footage:
A Kroger grocery store manager has been fired from his job after an altercation with an armed shoplifting suspect.
In a video shot with a cell phone in the store’s parking lot, the manager can be seen approaching the suspected shoplifter. He then shoves him into a parked car, removes the knife from his hand, and eventually drops him to the ground, reports Yahoo News.
In a report given to KDFW, Arlington police said the alleged shoplifter, 51-year-old Claude Medlock, has a long criminal history “that includes theft and robbery convictions.”
The police also commented that they do not view the manager’s actions as criminal.
Kroger released a statement regarding the situation stating that the manager’s actions were “not a reflection of our company's fraud prevention protocol, procedures or training." Subsequently, the manager was fired from his job with Kroger.
The store manager believes he handled the situation correctly, having worked in loss prevention for 13 years.
Here’s your daily reminder to take gun safety seriously.
A Vine user posting under the name Dana All Laws posted a video of him singing song lyrics and waving a gun around.
At the end of the six second video, the gun fires a round and Laws jumps in surprise. It’s not clear whether he meant to pull the trigger or if it was an accident. Either way, this guy deserves a featured spot on the cover of Idiots with Guns magazine.
Don’t act like this:
A Plant City woman was caught on surveillance footage stealing a donation jar from a Bravo Supermarket checkout counter this past Tuesday. The money was supposed to be given to a young girl with Lupus.
The video shows the woman and a young girl at the checkout counter. The woman looks around the store to make sure no one is watching, then prompts the girl to put the jar in their shopping cart. Then, they quickly hide the jar under shopping bags.
Mildred Diaz, whose 15-year-old daughter was meant to receive the money, said she hopes the woman gets caught.
"She is not only stealing from my daughter,” Diaz said, “she's stealing from millions of people who have Lupus that count on donations.”
Despite the loss, Diaz encouraged people to attend a Lupus fundraiser on May 4 at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa to help others battling the disease.
Anyone with information regarding the case should contact the Plant City Police Department.
Police have arrested three teens they say randomly attacked and robbed a man in Dayton, Ohio last month.
According to reports, the attack happened on March 7 when the high school students from Stivers School of the Arts videotaped themselves randomly assaulting the man, 51-year-old Ronald Baird.
"Oh that's me right there, definitely. He's sneaking up, I didn't even know he was coming,” said Baird while watching video of the attack. “I didn't even see that coming. I was like what the heck.”
The teens were able to take $3 from Baird before running off. A teacher at Stivers notified police of the incident after seeing the video on a student’s phone.
"They were emulating something they probably saw before online,” said Dayton Police Detective Nathan Curley. “It doesn't really make a lot of sense. You would think what are they trying to gain from this? They didn't get a lot of money. Didn't get a lot of property. They were looking for some kind of level of respect from their peers. Some street credibility for robbing random people filming it and showing the video. It is sad."
Baird was reportedly treated for minor injuries, and now, all three teens are in juvenile detention facing charges.
"It's terrible," said Baird. "It's petty, I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else. I hope these guys learn from what they did."
Officer Curley says he hopes other teens will learn from this and realize that what they’re doing is not funny.
“I think that this is kind of a copy cat thing,” said Curley. “They’re seeing other people online, on YouTube, doing this and they think it’s cool. Obviously, there is a victim in this crime who was injured and hurt, and I would say would you like someone to do this to your relative?”
Officials are reportedly attempting to try the teens as adults.
A disturbing video has recently surfaced on Reddit showing a young child, who doesn’t appear to be older than 3 years old, being handed a joint by the person filming and taking a puff.
The video was posted on Reddit yesterday and, so far, over 500 people have commented on it.
“After watching this I immediately downloaded the video, took screenshots and reported it to CPS in California as it is where the user is from,” wrote user skidoorider21. “This is no environment for a child to be in. He needs a good parent not someone to hurt him or bring him down.”
Many users were quick to point out that the poster on Vine was not the original source of the video but expressed hope that the original poster would be tracked down.
“I looked at the guys Twitter and he had said he did not film it, only reposted it,” wrote user DudeInUSA. “Still, it needs to get out there so the person who did film it can be tracked down.”
The latest viral video circulating the web proves that what goes around really does come back around.
The minute-and-a-half long clip shows an overweight boy being beaten up by a girl on what appears to be a school bus. The girl repeatedly smacks and kicks the boy while he begs her to leave him alone. Throughout the clip, other students can be heard asking the girl to stop so that they can get home, but she continues to beat the other kid.
After taking too much, the boy loses his composure, pushes the girl away, and grabs her by her hair. The girl continues to fight back, and the boy, who at this point clearly has had enough, puts her in a chokehold. The girl’s brother, who prior to this failed to stop the violence from happening, steps in and throws punches at the bullied boy so he doesn’t strangle his sister to death.
By the end of the video, the bullied boy lets the visibly shaken girl out of the chokehold and politely asks, “You ok?”
The video was posted on Tuesday, and in just a day, it already has garnered over 660,000 views. Commenters all seem to be in agreement that the girl got what she deserved, with one user saying, “I'm a mother and I say, u get what u asked for. If that was my daughter I'd say she deserved it. Mine knows better though.”
Check out the clip below.
A disturbing video that has recently gone viral shows a man repeatedly punching a dog in the face in an act of revenge against his girlfriend, and now, that man could face serious charges.
Tom-Jan Hüsch, 20, angrily punches the defenseless dog, a gift from his former girlfriend, in the face during the 45-second video. According to reports, the German man’s girlfriend recently broke up with him, so he made the video to get back at her. In addition to hurting the dog, Hüsch threatens to kill it and anyone else who makes him angry.
Authorities say the 10-week-old puppy lost a tooth, suffered a concussion, and had a swollen face after the brutal beating. After receiving the video, Hüsch’s girlfriend reported it to local police in Germany, and Hüsch was sent to a mental hospital for treatment. If convicted of violence against the dog, Hüsch could face up to 3 years in prison under German animal protection laws.
After the video went viral, many different websites were reporting that Hüsch was assaulted by someone who tracked him down once they saw the video, but the latest reports say those claims were fabricated and that the pictures showing his badly bruised face were photoshopped.
The puppy is now reportedly living with a loving foster family and is recovering from the injuries it sustained.
The arrest of a student at Lake Central High School was caught on video and has quickly gone viral.
Lake Central High School reportedly refused to acknowledge the suicide of a former student. The refusal led students to stage a public protest.
The students believed the school was responsible for acknowledging the former student's death, even though he was not currently enrolled, reports Lake Central News. Previously, they apparently had made an announcement for enrolled students who died.
School administrators went to the two areas where students were peacefully protesting. They encouraged students to return to class, and said that possible consequences for failing to adhere to this included suspension.
“I went not to rebel or get out of class,” one student told Lake Central News. “I went for Mike. He is one of us and to not stand up for one just like myself would be cowardly of me.”
When the principal arrived at the protest he was greeted with “ohs.” A student then apparently asked the student body to show some respect.
After an observed moment of silence in the room, things changed when the principal spoke to the students. He said he was disappointed in the students, reports The Free Thought Project.
In response, an unnamed student said, “And we’re disappointed in you too.” Minutes later he was reportedly taken from the room by two police officers.
