Herbert and Catherine Schaible - a couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their two-year old son - may face new charges this week after they allowed a second child to pass away without medical care.

The Schaibles belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes solely in faith healing.

As a result, they lost 8-month-old Brandon last week after a multi-day battle with diarrhea and breathing difficulties that was never addressed by a doctor.

France legalized gay marriage nationally on Tuesday following a wrenching national debate and protests that flooded the streets of Paris in recent days.

France Protests

Legions of police officers and water cannons stood ready near France's National Assembly ahead of the final vote, bracing for any possible violence.

The measure passed easily in the Socialist-majority Assembly, 331-225, but nevertheless galvanized the country's conservative political faction.

In recent weeks, violent attacks against gay couples have spiked and some legislators even received threats, while protesters stepped up demonstrations.

A South Carolina man in a t-shirt with a sexually charged message was arrested after refusing a police order to leave a park where he was wearing the thing.

The man wore a shirt "that read ‘I May Not Be Mr. Right But I’ll F--k You ‘Til He Shows Up,’” according to a Spartanburg Department of Public Safety report."

Michael Miller, 50, was arrested.

Offensive T-Shirt

When cops told Miller that he was not allowed to wear the shirt in Barnet Park, he became irate and “said he would wear the shirt any f--king where he wanted to.”

Police saw it differently.

A West Virginia teenager was suspended from school for one day after he refused to remove an NRA T-shirt in class. He was also reportedly arrested.

Jared Marcum, 14, returned to his Logan, W.V., school on Monday.

NRA Shirt

His father, Allen Lardieri, said, "I don't see how anybody has an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a T-shirt, especially when policy doesn’t forbid it."

The school district's dress code does prohibit any profanity, violence, and discriminatory messages, but the report noted that gun images are not on the list.

A.J. Clemente has been fired by from his news anchoring job at KFYR in Bismarck, North Dakota.

After one broadcast. For uttering back-to-back curses as the first words anyone heard him say on air.

The snafu took place last night and was followed by an anxious, especially awkward introduction by Clementine, who at least took his ousting in stride.

"Rookie mistake. I'm a free agent," Clementine Tweeted today. "Can't help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish i didnt trip over my 'Freaking Shoes' out of the gate."

We wish A.J. the best of luck going forward. And thank him for making our day with this clip.

A.J. Clemente made his anchoring debut last night on NBC affiliate KFYR in Bismarck, North Dakota.

And it was a memorable one for the reporter and all who tuned in, considering the very first words heard by viewers from Clemente's mouth were "f-cking sh-t."

Watch A.J. swear into a live mic, only for his co-anchor to ignore the snafu and awkwardly introduce her new colleague … whose opening remarks didn't exactly make up for his embarrassing mistake:

“That couldn’t have gone any worse!" Clemente Tweeted after the broadcast, while KFYR-TV News Director Monica Hannan issued a statement on Facebook:

A crisis was averted in South Florida over the weekend when a father rescued his child from the teeth of an alligator in Boynton Beach.

The incident took place when six-year old Joey Welsh wandered off during a canoe trip, ending up in the clenches of an animal that left marks on his arms and stomach.

"I ran in the water. It was about waist deep. I had my son like this here, because I didn't want to play tug-o-war with the alligator," Joseph Welch says in the above news report.

"While I'm doing that, I'm punching the alligator on top of the head as hard as I could."

A new report by medical professionals have made it clear: It's really dangerous to take the Cinnamon Challenge.

A YouTube fad that involves swallowing one spoonful of this spice without the aid of water, the number of poison control center calls about teens accepting the prank "has increased dramatically," according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

It rose from 51 in 2011 to 222 in 2012.

An alert on that organization's website warns that "people with asthma or other respiratory conditions are at greater risk of having this result in shortness of breath and trouble breathing."
