Safety Vigilantes Caught On Camera Destroying Oregon Boulder

If you were getting a load of the most photogenic rock in Oregon’s Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, “the duckbill”, back when it was still standing, you might have remarked that it looks capable of collapsing at any given moment.

During the 2013-2014 school year in Texas’s Fort Bend Independent School District, there were eight investigations of counterfeit money conducted by the police department.

Debtors’ prisons shouldn’t exist. As a society, we are at a point where they should be unacceptable.

Take for example the case of […]

Wisconsin Parents Required to Pay Fines for Their Bullying Child

Bullying is a timeless problem. While efforts towards prevention have seen much more support in recent years, there is no universal solution to the issue.

Major Cities Grossed Out by Giant Statues of a Naked Donald Trump

A team of street artists who call themselves Indecline have made a fairly aggressive commentary on this year’s presidential campaign — specifically presidential candidate Donald Trump. So far, five statues of Trump have been spotted in New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and San Francisco. The statues aren’t beautiful. It’s not that kind of […]

Florida Man Murders Married Couple, Bites Off Man’s Face

A grisly murder in Martin County, Florida has the police searching for clues. Officers responded to a call last night from the victims’ neighbor, who was critically injured while trying to stop a fight between his married neighbors and a young man.

Nashville Considering Decriminalization

The DEA officially shut down measures to unschedule marijuana, making last week disappointing for pro-marijuana Americans nationwide. Even so, the fight for legalization rages on in both federal and local levels of government. Government officials in Nashville, for example, are currently taking legal action in an attempt to reduce penalties for marijuana-related crimes. If successful, […]
