Friday Nov. 18th at 4:54 PM officers were caught on video pepper-spraying the peaceful protesters on UC Davis‘ campus after they refused to get out of the way for police.
Shortly after this video was releases, many people from all over had come together to speak out on behalf of the students and against the police who were shown implementing the pepper spray in this video. UC Davis and Chancellor had received negative feedback over this incident and decided they must take action.
In a statement, school Chancellor Linda Katehi announced that the officers were on administrative leave. She also said that she accepted ‘full responsibility’ for Friday’s incident.
Witnesses watched in horror as police moved in on more than a dozen tents erected in the campus quad drenching demonstrators with the burning yellow spray and arresting 10 people, nine of them students.
Although UC Davis had not named the officers, one of them has been identified locally as Lt John Pike.
In the latest statement Ms Katehi said: ‘I spoke with students this weekend, and I feel their outrage. ‘I have also heard from an overwhelming number of students, faculty, staff and alumni from around the country.
‘I am deeply saddened that this happened on our campus, and as chancellor, I take full responsibility for the incident.
But despite widespread calls for her resignation, the chancellor still refused to budge.
The statement continued: ‘I pledge to take the actions needed to ensure that this does not happen again.’
‘I feel very sorry for the harm our students were subjected to and I vow to work tirelessly to make the campus a more welcoming and safe place.’
Katehi said the investigation into the events surrounding the arrests, including communications from the police to the administration had been accelerated with a deadline of 30 days for the task force to issue its report.
The students were showing their support of Occupy Wall Street which has gained recognition all around the world. Their right to protest peacefully was threatened when police took advantage of their strength in being determined to sit there and stand up for what they believed in.
The moving protest was held in support of the overall Occupy Wall Street movement and in solidarity with protesters at the University of California, Berkeley who were jabbed by police with batons on November 9.
The school faculty association had demanded the chancellor’s resignation, saying that her authorisation of police force represented ‘a gross failure of leadership’.
A statement released by the Davis faculty board said: ‘Given the recent use of excessive force by police against ‘occupy’ protestors at UC Berkeley and elsewhere, the Chancellor must have anticipated that, by authorizing police action, she was effectively authorizing their use of excessive force against peaceful UCD student protestors.
This seems like a rather strong statement. Why would you need police to be prevalent at a unified peaceful protest on your campus? The students were doing nothing wrong and sitting quietly to show they supported their peers at other campuses that had endured the negativity of the police.
Sadly, the pepper spraying incident just adds fuel to the fire and proves that these students are out here for the right reason. They have the right to make their complaints known to those in charge and not persecuted for voicing them. It is wrong for the police to use such brutality when nothing is being done. other than the refusal to move from where they were protesting.

I have to admit that I am pretty damn envious of this little bitch. First of all, she put up one hell of a fight during her arrest and then to top it off, she looked happy as hell in her mug shot. When I was arrested for my DUI (blessing is disguise), I pulled the typical ‘cry and beg’ act and acted like quite the pussy. I was also far less drunk than the woman in the above mug shot and felt that if I refused to be happy in my photo, I had somehow showed them. Wrong. Very wrong.
Michelle Watson, 24, had a rather intriguing Thursday night and I’m here to share with you her story. After getting ridiculously hammered, Watson decided it would be a good idea to hop into her Honda Civic and drive herself home.
According to cops in Prescott, Arizona, this young, drunk, woman had a large list of problems that led to her arrest; She allegedly:
* Hit “numerous curbs” and drove on the sidewalk
* Said, “I don’t have to walk fucking anywhere” when approached by a cop
* Shoved an officer after declining to take field sobriety tests
* Had to be taken to the ground while scuffling with a cop
* Kneed a second officer in the crotch while being handcuffed
* Repeatedly cursed at police
* Kicked the inside of a squad car
While taking her booking photo at the Yavapai County Jail, she was ballsy enough to give them one last ‘Fuck You’ and smiled like her life depended on it. She also threw up the double thumbs which made it seem as though she was thrilled with her accomplishments for that evening. And shockingly her blood alcohol level was THREE times the legal limit. Something tells me she’s familiar with getting plastered and driving a vehicle.
As detailed in a Prescott Police Department report, Watson was charged with aggravated assault on a cop, resisting arrest, and “DUI-super extreme.”

Lao Pan was a man of 68-years-old that recently died after living a single life with his yellow-haired dog who is seen in the video above, sitting by his grave. After he was determined deceased earlier this month his home in Panjiatun village near Qingdao city, Shandong Province was cleared and the dog had gone missing.
Villagers later stumbled upon the dog who was politely guarding the grave of his previous owner. Once the people in this village realized that the dog had been there around 7 days without eating any food or drinking any water, they brought the loyal dog back to the village and fed it some buns. The buns were taken back to the grave where the amazing dog had brought them.
Luckily, the villagers have now taken it upon themselves to bring water and food to the dog since it’s been refusing to leave its place. There has also been talks of building a kennel so the animal can feel more at home and stay relatively close to its owner, or should I say, friend.

I’ve always thought that dogs were pretty smart, but never expected I would ever catch one behind the wheel of a car, much less, a motor home. I can barely even operate a motor home myself.
In Darwin, Australia, a dog was seen driving a motor home down the street while onlookers were left wondering if they were hallucinating.
“I came out and saw the bus going down the road. I couldn’t believe it,” McCormack said.
This isn’t the first time Woodley has tried to take the wheel, his owner explained.
“He sits next to me when I’m driving and in the driver’s seat when I’m not. The handbrake is on the dashboard and he’s seen me release it many times. He was just copying me. He’s tried it on before,” said McCormack.
The vehicle was eventually brought to a stop when bystander Phil Newton, 30, jumped in an open window and put the handbrake back on after seeing that a dog was navigating the mobile home.
“This was weird, even for the Northern Territory,” he said.
Talk about a great designated driver. He can operate the motor home while you sleep it off in the back. People are getting the right idea these days, teach your animals practical tricks such as fetching vodka and driving your vehicles. Screw the dogs who can simply ‘shake’ and ‘play dead’, those tricks do nothing for their owners except show the public that they’ve wasted a lot of valuable time teaching their pet to do something useless.

When you watch shows like ‘True Blood‘ and movies like ‘Twilight’ you need to take a step outside of reality, and realize that these stories are based off of fiction. For people who watch these shows and then assume they’re themselves vampires, you need to stop being so fucking crazy. If you were a vampire, don’t you think you would have been aware before this fad had started up?
Akosua Serwaa Bonsu, a 31-year-old woman from Anwiankwanta in the Amansie East Municipality of the Ashanti region, was arrested last Saturday evening after she bit into the scrotum of a man. Kwadwo Owusu, 55, a native of Ofoase-Kokoben, had his testicles severed by the woman ‘vampire’, who now faces provisional charges of causing bodily harm and aggravated assault.
The suspect, who appeared in the Bekwai Circuit Court, was remanded into prison custody by the presiding judge, Daniel Kwaku Obeng, to re-appear on November 29, 2011 to face trial. Prosecution, Detective Sergeant Stephen Ofori, said the attack happened just around 6:00 pm after Mr. Owusu was returning to Ofoase-Kokoben from Anwiankwanta, where he attended a funeral during the day.
Not only did she bite this mans testicles off, but she did so after he attended a funeral. What a malicious bitch. Kwadwo Owusu, a palm wine tapper, was apparently attacked out of nowhere when Bonsu decided to start a quarrel with him. According to her, the man had intervened in a fight she was having with another woman and said she was going to teach him a lesson before biting off various portions of his testes.
The court heard that the victim’s testicles fell from the scrotum after the attack, rendering the victim weak in a pool of blood before bystanders went to his rescue. The victim had surgery to re-attach his testicles after he was rushed to the Bekwai Government Hospital, where he would spend several weeks to recover from the attack. Serwaa Bonsu was arrested by residents and handed over to the Anwiankwanta police, where she has been on remand following her appearance in court.
Holy shit. His testicles fell from his mangled ball sack?! That is one crazy ass woman who had intended on making this man’s life a living hell. Obviously this poor man had a shitty day: funeral, balls falling out, and then left feeling less like a man as he couldn’t even help himself out of that horrendous situation. I just wonder how she even managed to get the man’s pants off to the point that his scrotum was so easily accessible.

This is the moment that Alyssa met Holly having left her six months previously in Dubai. Holly was put up for adoption after her family had to return to the UK, however her adopted family abandoned her. By pure chance, Alyssas mum claudia was browsing a dubai website and saw an advert saying that Holly required a home and was close to being put down. Having now established them selves in the UK they arranged to fly Holly home and surprise thier daughter Alyssa. This is the reaction!!!

I’m sure you’ve all seen those videos of dogs who can go get the newspaper, throw things away, etc., but there is nothing like a dog who can go and fetch you liquor. Think about it; When you’re too drunk to get off your lazy ass and go make yourself another drink, this would most definitely come in handy. We should all take something away from this and start training our animals to do practical tricks as opposed to that other shit that helps no one and just proves you have too much time on your hands.
