Disturbing animal cruelty

Warning: The videos below contain graphic content.


A girl in Croatia threw six little puppies into a river. Her merciless act was caught on tape. It was published on LiveLeak, and has now gone viral on the web.

A few days ago, authorities released CCTV tape showing a woman throwing a cat into a garbage can. You've probably already seen this video.





In the U.S., not a single federal law protects farm animals from cruelty in factory farms. Mercy for Animals investigators go undercover regularly to report "callous disregard for animal welfare" at farms. This morning they released a video reporting alleged abuse on calves at a farm in Ohio. Here is the story.

Desperate for beauty

55786377

In Colombia there is a saying in Spanish: "No hay mujeres feas, lo que hay es mujeres sin plata." It means "ugly women do not exist, but cashless women do."

And some women will go to great lengths to get that cash. In South Florida, two 29-year-old women are being accused of committing crimes to pay for cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery.

In Tamarac, Shatarka D. Nuby, 29, in photo above, got new breast implants and liposuction in her arms. She is now facing one count of conspiracy to use unauthorized devices, or credit cards and one count of aggravated identity theft.

In Miami Beach, Maria Elizabeth Chrysson, 29, in photo below, got skin treatments, botox injections, and lip and cheek fillers. Chrysson, also known as the Beauty Bandit, is now facing three counts of grand theft and one count of scheming to defraud.

If convicted, these women will probably be walking the jail catwalk looking a bit more beautiful than the rest.

Here is the story on Chrysson.

Here is the story on Nuby.

Inmates cheer criminal court judge

HURLEY Inmates cheered Broward County Judge John Hurley after he announced he had won reelection.

"How many people in there supported me in the election?," Hurley asked the inmates after the applause.

The inmates then gave him a standing ovation.

Hurley said "I thought, gee, did the Supervisor of Elections put a voting booth right in the jail?"

Then he told a CBS-4 reporter Carey Codd:

"If someone wants to roll in a bank truck with a lot of money -- millions of dollars -- I'll go home and have a long discussion with my wife about it," he said. "But for now I'm gonna be a Broward County judge."

It seems like facing suspects such as the "barking Dunkin Donuts robber" will make any one get a sense of humor.

Here is the video of the "barking" robber:




Here is a video of the judge asking for your vote:

Armed girl kills man for laughing

HOLT, Arteesha Jose Rodolfo Gonzalez-Coreas, 43, and Martin Reyes, 51, thought it was funny that  14-year-old Arteesha Holt was pointing a .32  caliber revolver at them.

But this was not a joke. It was not a toy gun. And it was not a little girl playing.

The angered seventh grader wanted to be taken seriously, so she shot at both men for laughing. Gonzalez-Coreas, who was shot in the head, was pronounced brain dead at a hospital in Baltimore. 

The Baltimore Sun has the story.
