    Disturbing body cam video shows Texas cop shooting puppy

    CLEBURNE, Texas — Sadly, the tape doesn’t lie. Cleburne Police video shows an officer firing three shots at a seven-month-old pit bull wagging his tail. It’s hard to watch. Editor’s note: This video is graphic and some may find it disturbing.  “Why? I just don’t understand why,” owner Amanda Henderson said. She also wants to know why it sounds like the officer is making kiss noises right before he killed Maximus. “Every shot makes me go (cringes) and you can […]

    Couple will travel to all 50 states on honeymoon, work hourly job in each state

    “Why did you turn off the RV?” Alyssa Padgett recalls asking her husband, Heath, as their 29-foot RV careened off an exit toward the small town of Williams, Arizona. “I didn’t,” he replied. Just 10 days into their cross-country honeymoon, the fuel pump in their camper, lovingly known as “Franklin,” malfunctioned. Then came the propane leak, the broken refrigerator, the leaking roof and the fender bender in an Oregon parking lot, to name just a few of the couple’s bumps […]

    Report: Autopsy shows Michael Brown was shot in hand at close range

    FERGUSON, Mo. — Michael Brown’s gunshot wounds included a shot in the hand at close range, his official autopsy shows, according to an analysis reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Wilson told investigators that in a struggle for his pistol inside a police SUV, Brown pressed the barrel of Wilson’s […]

More than a 100 snakes were found inside a home, and they’re all being rescued. “We were finding them basically anywhere – in the cracks of the stone foundation, under the floor, under some boxes and other things – and we just were picking them up in pillow cases and putting them into a bucket just to count them,” […]

    3 teen girls in US accused of playing hooky from school to join ISIS

    DENVER, Colo. — The first indication that something was wrong was a phone call from his daughter’s Denver area school to let Assad Ibrahim know that she had not come to class. He dialed her cell. And she answered. But, officials say, she didn’t tell him that she was on her way to Syria to join ISIS. She was just late for class, that’s all, Ibrahim’s daughter told him on Friday, according to the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, which filed […]
