SWAT Completely Destroys Man’s House While Tracking Down Shoplifter [Video]

This sure seems like an example of law enforcement officials overreacting to a situation.

The SWAT team was after a man who had a gun on him and was shooting at them, and the gunman decided to go into a random house to get away. While it's understandable that they needed to take this man down at all costs, they ended up having a 20 hour standoff with one man. ONE MAN! It took them 20 hours just to take down one man, and there were 50 SWAT members. On top of that, they destroyed the house that he was in by firing who knows how many rounds into it.

Warrants Issued for Parents Who Cheered at High School Graduation [Video]

High school graduation is a big milestone for teenagers. It's a big relief that after 12 long years of schooling, you're finally stepping into adulthood.

Of course, it's a moment of pride for parents, and most shout and cheer when their kids walk across the stage. At the high school In Senatobia, Mississippi, the school asked parents to withhold their applause and cheers until after all the names were read. Some folks didn't honor that request.

Stuffed Tiger in Grand Rapids’ Yard Prompts Call to Animal Control

If I saw a tiger in someone's backyard I'd probably squeal with joy and then try to make it my best friend.

I'm not saying it's a good idea--  I just love kitties! And I'd probably make a bad decision regarding a big, wild cat because I'd just want to snuggle with it.

Anyway. Animal control got called to a yard in Grand Rapids because this very thing happened. Except the tiger was actually a stuffed animal.

What happened to the good old days, when teenagers spent Memorial Day weekend trying to find some beer or awkwardly fondling each other? This year they spent it doing something MUCH more unsavory.

There's a huge trend that blew up on social media this weekend, called the "Charlie Charlie Challenge."

And then, if the Mexican demon named Charlie really IS there, the pencils move.
