Parent Demands All Neighborhood Halloween Candy Be Allergen-Free

Signs posted this week on a number of telephone poles in New Britain, Connecticut are stirring quite a debate. “Attention parents: My son has severe allergies and comes home every year devastated that he can’t eat any candy he’s collected at your homes while trick-or-treating.” “Don’t exclude my child or any other child from the fun” the posters read.

Can beggars be choosers? Is this Mom just nuts or have good intentions just been poorly conveyed?

Nuts I can understand, but gluten and dairy?

Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket the funerals of the Sandy Hook victims

On Saturday the Inquisitr reported that the announcement had been made by Margie Phelps and Shirley Phelps-Roper. A tweet from the account @DearShirely, which has been attributed to Phelps-Roper said that, “Westboro will picket Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.”

Could you imagine if your kid was killed and these folks showed up to the funeral?

Following the announcement, activist group Anonymous responded by releasing the personal contact information of a number of Westboro Baptist Church members. Let the hunt begin.

Newspaper Layout Fail: Rock Hill Herald

A South Carolina newspaper is apologizing for placing an advertisement for “Guns for Christmas” next to its story about the Connecticut elementary school shooting which left 20 children and half a dozen adults dead. The Rock Hill Herald’s ad showed a picture of an AR-15 rifle, which is the same model used by 20-year-old Adam Lanza to kill 26 people and himself on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut.

Seriously! What in the actual F is wrong with people?

A gunman opened fire at an elementary school in CT and kills 26 people. The story is still developing, but it’s been reported that 18 of the victims were kids (possibly an entire Kindergarten class).

The massacre began inside the school’s main office as the principal was making morning announcements. Sources told Fox News students throughout the school could hear gunshots over the intercom system before the gunman entered the kindergarten classroom and continued his bloody rampage.

Of course the shooter (at least one of them) is dead and likely killed himself like a little bitch.

I’m so sad and pissed off right now.
