http://www.cracked.com

When we hear about a nasty crime being committed, the most common reaction is saying, "Oh no, that's terrible!" and then going back to launching birds through the air on our iPhones. But, while most of us think that it's best to leave the crime fighting to those who are actually trained (and paid) for it, sometimes a normal citizen will decide to take the law into his or her own hands ... and end up doing a way better job than the cops.

Government corruption at its worst. This person should spend the time behind bars that the convicts convicted by her lies and corruption have spent so far. Of course chances are that she'll be given a relative slap on the wrist compared to the time that others have been sentenced for non-violent behavior while she's trying to make money off of lies, and caging peoples bodies.

http://www.huntsvilleliberty.com

Republican voters accepted Mitt Romney as their nominee, and got what they deserved in the presidential elections.
