WTF Wednesday, I’ve-been-having-a-hard-time-with-life-so-give-me-a-break edition!

First, police brutality WTF:

WARNING: DISTURBING VIDEO!

So, I can’t speak for the actions of the first guy. All I can say is that at the point the video cuts in, he’s clearly already handcuffed, and being kicking and having the shit kicked out of him. But the second guy? He had voluntarily gone to the ground, when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, a cop fucking tackles him, and another cop starts kicking him…. seriously, WTF? WTF is wrong with these people? Assaulting someone is assaulting someone, whether the person doing the assaulting has a shiny badge or not.

Next, why-would-you-do-that WTF:

Bobby and Henock were brought to this pastor by their stepmother, who said she believes her stepsons are witches and claimed the boys were stealing their stepsister’s blood and using it to fly at night. Pointing to Henock, whose left arm is covered in bandages, she said that, in the “spirit world,” he is an elderly man who injured himself while trying to kill his father. The boys’ father was not present; he was out of town on work and apparently unaware of the ceremony.

In a small, squeaky voice, Bobby said that family members had told him he and his brother were infected with witchcraft after eating bread and green beans their older brother gave them.

Tshombe’s denunciation appeared to have traumatized the boys, who were barely responsive.

Accusing children of witchcraft and performing brutal “exorcisms” while charging an arm and leg for it? Really, that’s a new low…

Next, army wtf:

Apparently, the army thinks wikileaks is a national security risk. Heh.

Lt. Col. Lee Packnett, an Army spokesman, confirmed that the report was real. Julian Assange, the editor of WikiLeaks, said the concerns the report raised were hypothetical.

“It did not point to anything that has actually happened as a result of the release,” Mr. Assange said. “It contains the analyst’s best guesses as to how the information could be used to harm the Army but no concrete examples of any real harm being done.”

Because the terrorists obsessively check wikileaks? Also, I was given the impression that the information was old, even if a bit of it was classified…

Next, Palin WTF (I know it’s usually too easy, but it caused be to get into a long protracted debate about anarchy :- ) ):

WTF number 1: The article is just like, “Eh, no biggie. Doesn’t matter that someone who was actively trying to be vice president a little bit ago, is drawing crosshairs on a map.

WTF number 2: SHE PUT CROSSHAIRS ON A MAP!!  HOW IS THIS OKAY? I don’t care that she’s a republican, I just don’t think it’s cool that she did this, even though, in case you don’t know, there’s been a rash of bricks thrown with threatening messages through windows at various different democratic headquarters, and someone posted a representative’s address online, and later thgat night, someone cut the gas line to that house (and it turned out the representative didn’t even leave there…) and just threatening messages in general.  She HAS to know she’s just adding fuel to the fire. Ugh!

Say what you want about the health care bill. For it, against it, whatever you want, but but as soon as you start being violent, or threatening violence, I have an issue…

That’s it for this week’s post. I’ve got about 3 posts I want to power through, so I’m keeping this one short. Night!
