SUPER WEIRD. Those eyes tell a strange tale. This guy looks completely bugged out.

I feel so sad for that poor dog. Get that dog some counseling!


The Daily Beast — 17 year old Daniel Dakota Weber was arrested in Sept. for allegedly vowing to launch an attack on his high school where he is a senior. The cops got a warrant to search his phone, and found it “contained several videos showing a medium-size, mixed-breed dog having sex with Weber” in a motel room, according to his arrest warrant.

Weber reportedly told the cops he made the threat on Instagram because he wanted school to be canceled for the day.

His bond was raised from $15,000 to $20,000 for the bestiality charge.

In Texas, bestiality is punishable by up to two years in state prison.

Afghan Families Sell Children to Survive Since Taliban Takeover

This is just so sad. OMG. Prayers for Afghanistan.


HERAT, Afghanistan—Desperate to feed her family, Saleha, a housecleaner here in western Afghanistan, has incurred such an insurmountable debt that the only way she sees out is to hand over her 3-year-old daughter, Najiba, to the man who lent her the money.

The debt is $550.

Saleha, a 40-year-old mother of six who goes by one name, earns 70 cents a day cleaning homes in a wealthier neighborhood of Herat. Her much older husband doesn’t have any work.

Such is the starkness of deepening poverty in Afghanistan, a humanitarian crisis that is worsening fast after the Taliban seized power on Aug. 15, prompting the U.S. to freeze $9 billion in Afghan central-bank assets and causing a halt in most foreign aid.

With the financial system and trade paralyzed after the Taliban takeover, prices for basic food items like flour and oil have doubled since mid-August. The lender offered early this month to write off the debt if she hands over her little girl.

They have three months to provide the money. Otherwise, Najiba will be doing household work in the lender’s home and be married off to one of his three sons when she reaches puberty. They are not sure which one. The oldest is now 6.

“If life continues to be this awful, I will kill my children and myself,” said Saleha, speaking in her tiny two-room home. “I don’t even know what we will eat tonight.”

“I will try to find money to save my daughter’s life,” added her husband, Abdul Wahab.

Rap Mogul Jay Z Teams With The Innocence Project To Raise $1M To Investigate Wrongful Convictions In Midwest

Hip Hop Wired — According to The Huffington Post, Jay-Z has once again partnered with The Innocence Project.

Tricia Rojo Bushnell, Executive Director of the Midwest Innocence Project, called the effort “a huge investment”. As per the press release the funds will ultimately strengthen their ability to look at these cases which is going to shine a light on what the group needs to do to provide a just criminal legal system in Wyandotte County.

Back in September Team Roc filed a lawsuit against the police department in Kansas City. “The KCKPD is entrusted by the public to help maintain peace in the community. Yet, for years, it appears that officers have abused their power and engaged in wrongdoing,” the filing read. “To the extent that the KCKPD did not take any steps to remediate these issues, the public should have a right to know so they can organize and take appropriate steps to effect change.”

Florida Mom Shot Dead on Zoom Web Call Meeting by 2 Yr Old Son

A Florida man has been charged in connection with the shooting of a young mother during a work-related Zoom call.

Shamaya Lynn, 21, died when her own toddler obtained an unsecured handgun, pulled the trigger, and fired.

According to court documents, the gun’s owner, Veondre Avery, 22, kept the weapon in a backpack decorated with animated characters form a children’s show and that his 2-year-old son — the toddler who fired the fatal shot — knew how to use toy guns.

Veondre Avery

One of the participants in the fateful multi-party Zoom was selected to immediately alert the police to what occurred.

The colleague who telephoned 911 said that a child began “jumping on the bed without a shirt on and looked like he was wearing only a diaper” during the Zoom call. The colleague said that “she heard a loud noise and the child in the background beginning to cry.” The victim’s “head fell backwards and moved forward back into [the view of the] screen.” The college noticed “blood on [Lynn’s] nose” before the victim again moved “back off screen.” No one responded when colleagues called out for help.

Eventually, after several minutes had passed, the colleague told police she heard Avery enter the room and yell. The Zoom call remained active while Avery called 911 himself. The colleague said she tried to call out to Avery but that he apparently couldn’t hear her; the child was the only other person in the room when the gunshot rang out.
