An online gaming platform that was set to sell a game called ‘Active Shooter,’ pulled the video game before it was released after an outcry from mass shooting victims’ families.
In the game, which was scheduled to be released on June 6, gamers could play from the point of view of an active shooter, firing at civilians and SWAT team members, or from the point of view of a SWAT team member.
“Pick your role, gear up and fight or destroy! Be the good guy or the bad guy,” a description for the game, developed by Acid Publishing Group, read on Steam before the game was removed on Tuesday night. “The choice is yours!”
People who lost loved ones in shootings quickly worked together to protest the game.
“These active shooter games encourage copycats and those with violent tendencies to become desensitized to the carnage we know too well,” Sandy Phillips, whose daughter Jessica Redfield Ghawi

A video posted to YouTube shows a bizarre altercation in which an unidentified civilian is bludgeoned with a large blue dildo by New Jersey police officers. The incident is one of many strange and horrifying situations detailed in a lawsuit against Mountainside police officers.
The video, obtained by NJ Advance Media and shared by NJ.com, was taken inside the Mountainside police office. In it, Lt. Thomas Murphy and Det. Sgt. Andrew Huber are seen raucously smacking an unidentified male with a dildo nicknamed “Big Blue.”
In a 46-page lawsuit, five officers, Christopher Feighner, Richard Latargia, Thomas Norton, Jeffrey Stinner, and James Urban, and one borough employee, Amy Colineri, claim that the Mountainside Police Department was a hostile work environment with sexual connotations, according to MyCentralJersey.com, a New Jersey-based USA Today affiliate.
The suit includes a wide range of accusations, including allegations about homophobic jokes and pranks, nepotism in the department’s hiring practices, the prevalence of

Police in Wildwood, New Jersey are investigating officers seen apparently punching a woman on a beach Saturday in a video that went viral.
The involved officers have been re-assigned to administrative duty while the investigation is conducted, Wildwood Police said Sunday.
“Chief [Robert] Regalbuto stated that while he finds this video to be alarming, he does not want to rush to any judgment until having the final results of the investigation,” police said.
That video appears to show two officers wrestling a young woman to the ground and punching her in the head on a beach in Wildwood. People can be heard shouting at the woman to stop resisting. A woman who was sleeping on the beach woke up to the disturbance, recorded it on her phone and posted it on Twitter:
The arrested woman was identified as Emily Weinman, 20, of Philadelphia. She has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a

Milwaukee’s police chief apologized and said his officers “acted inappropriately” when they used a stun gun on Milwaukee Bucks star Sterling Brown. The department also released body cam footage of the incident from January.
“During the encounter, Mr. Brown was decentralized, Tased and arrested,” Alfonso Morales, the police chief, said at a press conference Wednesday.
“Our department conducted an investigation into the incident, which revealed members acted inappropriately, and those members were recently disciplined.”
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel identified the officer who confronted Brown as Joseph Grams, a former soldier, and said he was suspended for two days. At least two other officers were suspended, one for 10 days and another for 15.
The incident happened around 2 a.m. on January 26 in a mostly empty Walgreens parking lot. Brown left his Mercedes idling across parking lanes while he was in the store, the video released Wednesday shows.
When Brown exits the Walgreens, he

A Milwaukee teenager was beaten, stabbed and burned over a video game system, police said.
Dennis King, 15, was found dead in an abandoned home on Sunday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He had been missing since May 11.
Police said he was beaten with a hammer and stabbed in the neck before his body was burned.
Malik Terrell, 21, was arrested in Chicago on Monday for the murder. In court on Tuesday, prosecutors said Terrell killed King over a video game system. Prosecutors said Terrell and two of his brothers assumed that King’s friend stole their console, and since they thought King was involved, they killed him.
It’s unclear which system led to the slaughter.
“I’m heartbroken,” King’s aunt Kelley Wilson told WITI in Milwaukee. “I’m devastated … He’s a good kid. He never deserved none of this.”
Terrell has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life sentence if convicted.

A Miami man was not happy to find out his roommate was taking “man’s best friend” to an incredibly creepy new level.
The man was reviewing his in-home video surveillance system when he saw his roommate, Roberson Lubin, 48, laying on a bed with his roommate’s dog, Mickey, and petting him in a more-than-friendly way.
He called police, and showed them the video.
According to a police report, the video captured Lubin “laying on a bed with the canine laying beside him. The defendant was stroking the canine’s penis several times and squeezing/cupping his testicles,” the report says.
Lubin was arrested on April 24 and charged with illegal “sexual activities involving animals,” a first degree misdemeanor under Florida law punishable by up to one year in prison.
Court records indicate Lubin was arraigned on the charges the next day and released to a jail diversion program. He was also ordered to stay away from his

We’ve all been there.
You go to Popeyes, order from Wendy’s, realize you’re not at Wendy’s, and then try to throw a chair through a window.
Okay, maybe you haven’t been there, but on April 8, that’s exactly what happened with one particular woman, according to the New York Daily News.
Now, the NYPD wants help recognizing the lady responsible for a destructive freakout at a Popeyes in Staten Island.
Apparently, the woman wanted something from the “4 for $4” menu at Wendy’s, and was upset at the realization that she was, in fact, at a Popeyes. She ordered the meal anyway, the Daily News reported, sat down to eat and then had some words to say on the way out.
In the video, provided to Oxygen.com by the NYPD, the unidentified woman makes it to the door of the establishment before she turns around, yells, sticks out her tongue and makes an

The police department in Cambridge, Massachusetts is catching heat over a video filmed Friday that captured officers punching a black Harvard student who had walked into a busy street and taken off his clothes.
Harvard University President Drew Faust called the police behavior “profoundly disturbing” and “upsetting” in an email to the university community Monday, according to the Boston Globe. The Harvard Black Law Student Association told the local Cambridge Day newspaper that the arrest was “a brutal instance of police violence.”
The student, Selorm Ohene, had been the subject of numerous 911 calls and was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, police said. A video from a bystander showed three Cambridge police officers and one transit police officer approaching Ohene on the street’s traffic island and attempting to talk to him. The three policemen converge on Ohene and throw him to the ground. As he squirmed underneath them, an officer hit him in the face five times,

A fake video that claimed to be a Hillary Clinton sex tape has been traced back to a Reddit account linked to the Russian firm accused of meddling in the 2016 election.
An account that posted GIFs from the clip, under the name Rubinjer, is associated with the Internet Research Agency based in St. Petersburg, according to NBC News. The Internet Research Agency is one of three Russian groups charged in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into election interference.
Short animated sequences from the phony sex tape were posted to Reddit’s r/The_Donald page, a popular forum for extreme President Trump supporters. One post was titled, “This is how Hillary gets black votes.”
The clip, called “Leaked Hillary Clinton’s Hotel Sex Tape with Black Guy,” was also posted to porn sites PornHub and SpankBang by Rubinjer and was viewed over 250,000 times. Neither site commented on the clip.

It only takes a minute.
Two people in matching hooded sweatshirts, black pants and shoes storm into a jewelry store and perform a symphony-like smash-and-grab operation. They’re frantic but methodical, snatching a covering off the glass cases before smashing them, grabbing whatever they can and stuffing the loot into backpacks.
The whole operation was captured by the store’s surveillance camera, and Florida police released the video in hopes of catching the pair they think is responsible. According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the suspects got away with up between $50,000 to $100,000 in jewelry and rare coins. They forced open the back door of the Estate Coin and Jewelry Galleria at around 1 a.m. on March 29. The store is located in Sarasota, on the west coast of Florida.
The Tribune reported that the day before, a couple came into a nearby store. Other jewelry store owners said the suspects came into their stores
