Lauten, pictured above, was arrested in December 2000 for misdemeanor larceny, according to court records. Lauten, then 17, was collared for stealing from a Belk department store in her North Carolina hometown.
Because Lauten was a first-time offender, her case was handled via the District Courts deferred prosecution program, which resulted in the charges eventual dismissal after the future scold stayed out of trouble for a prescribed period.
Since Lauten was just another teenager caught shoplifting at the mall, it appears unlikely that she was publicly pilloried for her lack of class, nor were her parents criticized as poor role models.
--- per other sources, she was arrested again at age 19
This little dog was rescued earlier this year from the side of the road in Los Angeles, California. As youll see, little Charlie was in sad shape. His fur was matted and knotted with burrs, which were not only painful for Charlie but also rendered him an unsightly mess.
Now, any young man would want to look as sharp as possible. But for dogs like Charlie, maintaining a neat, appealing appearance is especially important. Why? Because when Charlie was rescued, he was sent to a high-kill shelter, where most dogs dont last more than a week unless someone adopts them.
High kill shelters euthanize more than 50 percent of the animals in their custody.
As youll see in this video, posted by The Pet Collective, a groomer from Hollywood Grooming came to the rescue of this homeless dog and in two days after the makeover, Charlie had a home.
A reserve police officer in Houston has been charged in the shooting on a woman in an apparent road rage incident in which he shot her in the head.
Kenneth Caplan, the reserve deputy, cut the woman off and she responded by honking her horn. Caplan then got out of his car and shot her; the bullet grazed her in the head.
I honestly got a taste of death. My heart was slowing down and I couldnt really breathe, the woman, who wants to protect her identity, told NBC2 in Houston. He was aiming at me and I thought he was going to cuss me out. It didnt register that I was, you know, going to get shot. The blood was in between my nails, just crazy blood, and all over my cellphone, just covered.
Investigators said Caplans female passenger leaned back in her seat while Caplan shot at the womans car. Caplan reportedly fled the scene, and has been charged with aggravated assault. The woman was hospitalized, but had non life-threatening injuries.

If police accounts are to be believed, there is a bizarre urge among young, unarmed black men to provoke their own murder by reaching for their waistbands when cops are aiming service revolvers at them.
Just this week we heard Officer Darren Wilson claim that one of the reasons he killed Michael Brown was that the young man reached for his waistband, andin what I guess was just an incredibly weird coincidencewe heard Cleveland police claim they killed a 12-year-old kid with a toy gun because he also reached for his waistband.
But this odd compulsion is not a new one. In 2011, fully half of all the young black men shot by LA cops were cut down becauseagain, if police accounts are to be believedthey too were reaching for their waistbands. The epidemic also spread to Houston, where multiple police accounts cite the same excuse. Oscar Grant, the young man killed by Oakland cops on a subway platformand the subject of the movie Fruitvale Stationwas shot for the exact same reason.
If police accounts are to be believed, this compulsion only exists among young black men. I have been approached by angry or frustrated cops several times in my lifetwice as an angry young protestor, eager to defy them and have never felt even the slightest urge to reach for my waistband. Maybe white skin contains a protein that protects against this terrible compulsion?

Tyree Landrum was on his way to work during the San Diego rush hour
Group of around a dozen student protesters blocked the I-5 highway
He got out of the car and confronted them, saying he was going to be late
Then wrestled a bullhorn from one of the demonstrators on the road
Other people angry at the delay also got out of their cars
His reaction has gone viral - prompting support from people on Facebook
Every interview, the top brass say blocking traffic is terrorizing the LA public. Deliberate use of the word.
Oh, the irony
What does DU think?
Hi Anna, I dont know you, but I was wondering if [blanked-out] is your son?
Yes he is. Why?
I have never met him before, but he sent me a concerning message to my public Facebook page today that I was wondering if you might be interested in discussing with him. *screengrab*
Omg, little sh*t. IM SO SORRY. YES I WILL TALK TO HIM! (Via)
