Imgur's issue of the moment is Jon Stewart talking about a "9/11 Victim Compensation Fund" to a mostly-empty congressional chamber (lots of GOP didn't show up):

Sadly, his acting still isn't very good, so when he delivered his dramatic lines I couldn't help but laugh D:

I mentioned Stewart's bad acting on Imgur and got a nice bit of downvotes ;p
...it's not like I don't think that 9/11 first responders shouldn't get treatment, it's just that Stewart is fake as fuck and did that fake crying bit for years on Daily Show. You can tell he's acting because he's not good at it :p

"Pence Visits Conversion Therapist For Routine Gay-Preventative Checkup"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://pol...r-routine-gay-preve-1835480234
" “I feel completely heterosexual right now, but I still like to visit the doctor every six months or so to just to be safe,” said Pence, noting that he didn’t enjoy receiving electric shocks on his genitals while staring at photos of naked men, but it was worth it to ensure he didn’t come down with a case of full-blown gayness later on. “Maybe I’m a hypochondriac when it comes to contracting homosexuality, but I’m a busy guy and I’d rather have a spiritual intervention early on than risk missing work to recover from being attracted to men. Plus, now that it’s June it seems like everyone is gay so I need to be extra careful. I’m so lucky my insurance covers yearly gay-prevention appointments.” At press time, Pence was preparing to be lobotomized in an effort to fully immunize himself from dangerous homosexual thoughts."

Previous thread update on that cyclist who did flips after being struck:
http://www...ns-lane-hit-run-cyclist-426148
"Sean Fagan, 29, left medical student Josh Dey with brain injuries after he hit him with his car and fled the scene on Easter Sunday (April 21) ... Fagan, of Regina Road, Islington [a London Borough], appeared at Blackfriars Crown Court on Tuesday (June 4) where he pleaded guilty to causing injury by dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic accident ... He was bailed and will be sentenced on July 2."

Apparently Dey (cyclist) had to get the traffic footage himself after he was released from the hospital because the police wouldn't be able to get someone to save the footage before it was deleted... and it sounds like Fagan (driver) didn't turn himself in — i.e., maybe he was tracked down via the video evidence. I'll have to check back on July 3rd to see how sentencing went...

From the comments, looks like she was charged with public intoxication as opposed to DUI. There's also a comment that shows a random passerby taking video of the traffic stop. Kind of funny to see the little truck :p

Costco shooting

"
Investigation has confirmed an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department Officer was shopping at Costco with his family. Without provocation, a male unknown to the officer’s family assaulted the officer while the officer was holding his young child. This attack resulted in the officer firing his weapon, striking the male and two of the male's family members. The family members are being treated at local hospitals and are in critical condition. The off duty officer was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated and released. The off duty officer’s child was not injured during this incident. The Riverside County Coroners Office has identified the deceased male as 32 year-old Kenneth French from Riverside.

The officer's gun was the only weapon involved in the incident, contrary to earlier reports. As is standard procedure in such investigations, the Corona Police Department is working closely with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office who will be evaluating the facts and circumstances of this incident.

“that's Diamond & Silk in bottom left photo.”

Oh, after Googling them, I remember their dumb little viral videos. Looks like that was a picture of them with Steve King, sort of trying to help him improve his racist image. Pretty weird :/

“i assumed the kid was just bored in duck video... and why aren't the ducks just flying away?”

Yeah, I thought she was doing the bridge for attention apart from the other activities until the ducks started heading towards her ;p
And those ducks must be local and so too lazy to fly ;)

"Taylor Swift Inspires Teen To Come Out As Straight Woman Needing To Be At Center Of Gay Rights Narrative"
[Onion: News in Brief]
http://ent...ut-as-straight-woma-1835591597
"UPPER ARLINGTON, OH—Describing how the pop singer’s latest music video provided the encouragement she had been looking for, local teen Gabriella Bowman was reportedly inspired Monday by Taylor Swift to come out as a straight woman needing to be at the center of the gay rights narrative. “As soon as the video for the pride anthem opened with a close shot of Taylor’s face, my heart stopped and I thought, ‘That’s me,’” said Bowman, who explained how watching the artist use LGBTQ iconography to advance her career empowered the 17-year-old to arrive at an epiphany about wresting a movement out of marginalized people’s hands and into her own. “For my whole life, I’ve lived in shame and fear about the mere idea of making Pride Month about me. People always tried to tell me that I should let others speak for themselves, that they should control their own narratives. They even told me that I was ‘confused.’ And even though Taylor Swift has now shown me that it’s okay to be me, it breaks my heart that there are still so many straight people out there who haven’t yet stepped forward to make LGBTQ equality all about them.” At press time, Bowman had assembled a group of her closest gay friends and family members to inform them she was their leader now."

bad people:


Teenagers in Alaska are facing murder charges after allegedly shooting a 19-year-old and dumping her body in a river at the behest of an internet fraudster who offered money for the footage.

Cynthia “CeeCee” Hoffman’s “best friend” Denali Brehmer, 18, invited her to go hiking and allegedly lured her to her death in Anchorage on June 2 as part of the sick scheme.

Brehmer’s friend, 16-year-old Kayden McIntosh, joined Brehmer and Hoffman during the hike. McIntosh allegedly helped bind Hoffman with tape and then shot her in her head when they reached their destination, Thunderbird Falls. Afterward, they allegedly dumped Hoffman’s body into the nearby Eklutna River.

Authorities said Brehmer texted Hoffman’s family and said they were dropping her off at a park. She and McIntosh allegedly then burned Hoffman’s belongings at another location.

Authorities say 21-year-old Darin Schilmiller of New Salisbury, Indiana, convinced Brehmer to carry out and film Hoffman’s killing by offering Brehmer at least $9 million after they started talking online a few weeks earlier. He told her his name was Tyler and provided Brehmer with a fake photo, saying he lived in Kansas.

“He does not look like the young man he portrayed himself to look like, he is not a millionaire, and he lives in Indiana,” prosecutors noted in the memorandum. “This practice of assuming a fake identity to engage in online relationships is a practice commonly referred to as ‘catfishing.’”

McIntosh and three others suspects, whom authorities identified as 19-year-old Caleb Leyland and two juveniles, allegedly agreed to help Brehmer carry out the killing while believing that they’d receive a cut of the payment. It’s not clear what role these defendants had in the killing.

Authorities searched Brehmer’s cell phone and uncovered sexually explicit photos and text messages between her and Schilmiller, as well as directions from Schilmiller on how she should sexually assault a child for his viewing pleasure.

Schilmiller was arrested on child pornography charges and will be extradited to Alaska to face additional charges in Hoffman’s death, federal prosecutors said last week.

Upon his arrest, Schilmiller allegedly said he chose Hoffman as Brehmer’s victim and that they discussed murdering someone else after Hoffman but abandoned the plan. He admitted to trying to blackmail Brehmer into raping people as well, prosecutors said.

It wasn’t until after Brehmer’s arrest that she learned that “Tyler” wasn’t the person she thought he was, according to authorities.

“Once Brehmer realized she had been catfished by Schilmiller, she ultimately admitted to being solicited by Schilmiller to commit the murder and that the murder was planned,” prosecutors said.

All six defendants have been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, and two counts of second-degree murder.
...
In a June 8 court appearance, Brehmer appeared to confess to wrongdoing, telling the room: “I know what I did was wrong and I know I could have probably done something different if I was able to, and I don’t want my daughter knowing that her mom grew up to be a killer because I don’t see myself as one.”

Brehmer’s half-sister, Rebekah Langdon, told the Daily News that Brehmer had a baby who was put up for adoption.
