A new Human Rights Watch video features rare interviews with former political prisoners who survived years of systematic abuse, torture, and starvation in the country’s notorious prisoner camps. A UN report detailing the regime’s atrocities also included a letter to Kim Jong-un saying he could face trial for “crimes against humanity.”
The radio station says that they will not be tweeting again until “the station feels that Twitter is responding appropriately”.
Plus stunning photos from the edge of an erupting volcano, the question of why Ben Affleck would want to risk playing Batman, and the ultimate in cockroach-related nightmare fuel.
This post contains graphic images.
But their top reason for hitting was, “They hit me first.”
“We always worry that they’ll feel like, I’m going to be out on the street with my kids, so I’m just going to have to go back to him,” says the director of a service agency.
Rep. Joe Heck strongly denies the charge and tells BuzzFeed that “anyone perpetuating a story like this … demeans the pain that so many victims of domestic violence experience and the courage it takes to confront it.”
Photos of Patricia Krentcil before she became synonymous with bad parenting and jerky.
Not even kidding. This is the almost too-ghoulish-to-be-true story of Luka Rocco Magnotta, currently wanted by Interpol for murdering, eating and dismembering a man — all on video — then mailing the body parts to Canadian politicians. WARNING: Graphic details.
This single dad sent his 10-year-old son to school wearing a wire after complaints of bad behavior. What he recorded was disturbing.
Domestic violence can start as early as middle school, new research shows .
Wait, what? On “The View” today, Sherri Shepherd expressed concern for the various girls who tweeted on Grammy night that they’d accept abuse from Chris Brown. So far, so good! Which is why it’s too bad Shepherd then defended Brown (again), even suggesting he could serve as a role model for victims of domestic abuse.
Today in jokes about abuse: The editors of Times Of India, the world’s most circulated English language newspaper, apparently decided that this sparkling piece of wit about Chris Brown was a perfect fit for their funny pages.
A Wisconsin man arrested for allegedly punching his wife claims a poltergeist was responsible for the attack. Unfortunately even paranormal experts are calling foul.
Oh, and she’s facing six years in jail for ‘resisting arrest and reckless behavior’. Well, I guess it is better than being beheaded by your misogynistic overlords.
Lieutenant John Pike has already become a meme, so it only goes to follow that he’d have his own fake Twitter. SPRAAAAYYYYYY!!!!
Man, these guys are fast. From last night’s episode, The Poor Kid.
Amazing photos of Occupy Wall Streeters as they tangle with the NYPD on the second month anniversary of the protest. Pockets of violence erupted as OWS, in what they’re calling a “Day of Action,” attempted to march on the New York Stock Exchange.
Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach charged with 40 counts of child sex abuse, breaks his silence on the Penn State scandal with Bob Costas. And he unsurprisingly denies all the charges. “Horsing around” and “horseplay” are terms that are now forever tainted.
On the heels of the revelation that the judge who freed Jerry Sandusky on bail was a donor to Sandusky’s Second Mile charity, and the incredulous questions as to why she did not recuse herself, here are some more unanswered questions surrounding this awful scandal. Not to get into the realm of conspiracy theory, but there are some very disturbing “coincidences” surrounding this case.
Jerry Sandusky in a 1987 NBC interview: “I enjoy being around children…I just have a good time with them.” “Everybody needs people to care for them, even if sometimes they don’t want it.” *shudder*
This is the horrific and damning story of Victim 2. From the Grand Jury Report into the alleged and repeated rape of young boys by former Penn State Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky. The report identifies at least 8 victims, but Victim 2 is the case that directly involved Head Coach Joe Paterno and the upper echelons of the Penn State hierarchy. The abuse that’s described, and the resultant cover up, is shocking.
Wife beating chic. Lovely. Photographer Tyler Shields strikes again, this time with a battered Heather Morris from Glee. Spousal abuse has never been so sexy. Excuse me, that was a typo…I meant to say, “SPOUSAL ABUSE IS NEVER SEXY.”
