Dave Herman's Wife Film's Tasering Incident and Felony Charges made up on the fly
(deadspin.com)
Just another instance of cops overstepping their boundaries and not really enforcing any laws. Wasn't a chase or a violent drunk Herman Charges seem like BS. Just goes to show how an article about multiple felonies, resisting, and endangering a child can really be just spun from the real story where the cops appeared dumbfounded and unable to answer basic questions so they can understand what is going on with whatever civilian they have encountered. Why find out what is going on when you can just taze people and then charge them a misdemeanor that is literally for `making them have to use their tazer` apparently. Now I wish he had fought some cops, instead we just have cops abusing power. What else is new. If that's the actions that consist of what this country considers a multiple felony situation we might as well all go to prison for the rest of our lives now. EDIT: Didn't think until I clicked that this should probably go in the UFC forum not the news forum... so mods, feel free to move it if that's where it should be posted.

Kimbo Slice calls out Seth Petruzelli, Tito Ortiz for Bellator debut
(mmafighting.com)
It's been a long time since Kimbo Slice, aka Kevin Ferguson, last entered a mixed martial arts cage. The street fighting legend, who rose to national prominence with a string of internet brawl videos in the early aughts then parlayed his fame into an absurdly lucrative MMA career with pit-stops in Elite XC and the UFC, inked a surprising multi-fight deal with Bellator last week, and even after five years away from the sport, Slice remains willing to take on all comers.
