The Internet exploded this week over an image sent over the popular social media app Snapchat by a sorority member at the University of Alabama.

She quickly became the most miserable person in the state not named Nick Saban.

The image is allegedly of three college girls taking a selfie and reads "Chi O got NO n----s!!!!!" followed by a few typical college girl emojis. Check it out:

Racist Snapchat

Initially, people posited that the Snapchat may have been doctored with the racist image, but the official Chi Omega Facebook put out a statement saying:

"Chi Omega is aware of the image that has been circulating via social media and is in communication with The University of Alabama administration."

Amid rising controversy, the group said, "What was expressed is absolutely reprehensible and completely inconsistent with Chi Omega's values and policies."

"Chi Omega took swift disciplinary action in accordance with the organization's policies and procedures. The woman who took the photo is no longer a member of the chapter."

For over a week a now. protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the death of Michael Brown have been making international headlines.

Yesterday, President Obama issued a statement on the situation that somehow seemed to further enrage both sides of the conflict, and as the video below demonstrates, after 11 days of protests, tensions may be running higher than ever:

The clip clearly shows a police officer pointing a rifle at a non-violent protestor and shouting, "I'll f--king kill you."

The civilian asks to the officer's name only to be told, "Go f--k yourself."

Thankfully, another officer was able defuse the situation before it became violent.

You would think getting so drunk that she knocked her one-month-old baby out of a stroller and got arrested was bad enough for Sandra Grohman.

Drunkenness is a powerful force, though, and she upped the ante, making sure all know about her story on the web by posing like this in her mugshots:

Sandra Grohman Mug Shots

Jazz hands plus goofy face equals internet immortality. Which is a cool thing if you're a cat or a part of some dance-off video. But in this case?

Grohman, 29, was sentenced to 180 days in jail in Humble, Texas, after she pleaded guilty to endangering a child following an alarming situation in April.

A concerned citizen called police to report that the mother, who appeared to be intoxicated, was pushing a stroller about five feet away from a busy road.

Witnesses said that the mother had fallen over, causing the baby to fall out of the stroller; officials had the baby checked out by EMS at the scene.

The baby was released to Children’s Protective Services, which is probably for the best for all involved here. Hopefully Sandra gets it together in the can.

On the bright side, check out other hilariously funny mug shots below:

James Foley, a freelance war correspondent from New Hampshire, was killed at the hands of the Islamic State militant group in a graphic video.

The militants distributed a video that said the apparent beheading was retaliation for recent U.S. air strikes in Iraq, U.S. officials said late Tuesday.

The officials told the AP that they believe it is Foley in the video, bringing to a tragic end a saga that began when Foley was kidnapped in Syria in 2012.

It is unclear when the video was made or where it was taken. In the video, a man who appears to be Foley is seen kneeling in a barren landscape.

Behind Foley, who speaks in a monotone even under duress, stands a masked member of the Islamic State group, clad in black and wielding a knife.

In the propaganda video, Foley says that his death comes in retaliation for the recent air strikes against Islamic militants who had occupied parts of Iraq.

Foley also directly addresses his brother, John, a member of the Air Force, and urges him to consider the ramifications of the bombing campaign.

The militant fighter standing over him then says the air strikes are denying the rights of Iraqi Muslims of all walks of life to live under an Islamic caliphate.

The militant says the life of another U.S. journalist, Steven Sotloff, may be next.

Sotloff, who has covered the region for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, among other outlets, was last seen reporting in Aleppo, Syria, last year.

A man identified as Sotloff appears at the end of the video. The militant says his fate would depend on what President Barack Obama does next.

Both prisoners are wearing orange shirts and pants, similar to orange jumpsuits worn by detainees at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

In January 2013, Foley’s family in New Hampshire spoke publicly of his abduction in Syria, which they said occurred on Thanksgiving Day in 2012.

The journalist was traveling toward the Turkish border when he was intercepted by an unmarked vehicle, according to a story published after his abduction.

“We have never been prouder of our son Jim,” his mother, Diane, said in a message on a Facebook page his supporters had set up.

“He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people. We implore the kidnappers to spare the lives of the remaining hostages.

"Like Jim, they are innocents. They have no control over American government policy in Iraq, Syria, or in any other part of the world.”

Earlier in the evening, Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said in a prepared statement that if the video is genuine:

“We are appalled by the brutal murder of an innocent American journalist and we express our deepest condolences to his family and friends.”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was defiant Tuesday as he was booked on abuse of power charges, showing no sign of worry, angst or despair in his mug shot.

In fact, the man looks downright dashing in his booking photo:

Rick Perry Mug Shot

Rick Perry was indicted Friday. Other than him threatening to "fight this injustice with every fiber of my being," you would never know such a thing occurred.

The 64-year-old flashed a thin, confident grin beneath his always-perfect hair, then headed to a local Austin eatery for ice cream, which he Tweeted about.

The Republican, who is mulling a second presidential run in 2016, was indicted for carrying out a threat to veto funding for state public corruption prosecutors.

The longest-serving governor in Texas history is accused of coercion and official oppression for publicly promising to veto $7.5 million for the public integrity unit.

Perry threatened the veto if the county's Democratic district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, stayed in office after a DUI conviction, then made good on it.

Michelle Duggar has never been shy about expressing her conservative political beliefs, but her recent opposition to an Arkansas law might surprise even her most far-right fans.

The TLC reality star recorded a robocall message for the citizens of Fayetteville, Ark., encouraging them to vote against an anti-discrimination law.

The legislation is designed to outlaw prejudice against transgender individuals with regard to employment, housing, and use of public facilities.

Duggar not only wants to keep current segregation policies in place, she reveals in her call that she refuses to recognize transgender people by their proper gender.

In fact, she informs callers that the new law would allow "men - yes I said men to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, [and] showers."

You can read the full text of Duggar's message below:

The surveillance video taken of Michael Brown minutes before the St. Louis teen was killed has become a hot topic of debate in the high-profile case.

On Friday, Darren Wilson was identified the officer whose fatal shooting of the unarmed black teen ignited days of heated protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Michael Brown was killed after a robbery in which he was suspected of stealing a $48.99 box of cigars, as shown in the surveillance video above.

It is widely speculated - even assumed - that the police officer used excessive, unnecessary force in the confrontation that ended with the teenager dead.

However, some counter that the surveillance video supports the officer - not to justify the killing of Brown, obviously, but to put the confrontation in perspective.

The video shows that Brown almost certainly committed a robbery, and was aggressive with the store clerk, before he ran into the officer in Ferguson.

It might seem counterintuitive, but even criminals can have a heart of gold.

Megan Bratten proves as much this week when she had her car stolen from a parking lot in Independence Missouri, only to realize she left her cell phone inside the vehicle.

So the single mother (of five!) figured she had nothing to lose by texting the culprit and explaining her situation. And he sympathized with her!

"He texted me back and gave me step-by-step directions where to find the van, and I went there with my mom and my dog, and the van was there," Bratten told KCTV5.

The thief, sadly, could relate to Bratten, as he also sent the single mother a message that read:

"I do feel bad... my kids needed a meal on the table so that's what their dad did got them food. I know its wrong but it's been so hard since I lost my job."

Tucker Blandford is alive and well.

And very, very sorry.

The 23-year old was set to marry Alex Lancaster, who Blandford met when the two attended college in Connecticut together in 2012, on August 15.

However, Blandford got such cold feet prior to the big day that he pretended as if he had perpetually cold feet... by faking his own death!

Lancaster - who described her fiancé as “such a gentlemen” and told The Daily Mirror she had “never been in love” like she was with Tucker - says she got a call a few months ago from a man claiming to be Blandford’s father.

A released deposition of a former Cincinnati morgue employee sickeningly revealed that he may have sexually violated up to 100 bodies while on the job.

Toe Tag

Employed with the county between 1976 and 1992, 60-year-old Kenneth Douglas made the claim in a deposition conducted while he was in prison.

Convicted of gross abuse of a corpse, Douglas admitted having sex with at least three corpses in the 1990s after DNA evidence linked him to a murder victim.

That victim's killer adamantly denied allegations that he violated the body after committing the act, which ultimately led to Douglas' deeds being uncovered.

Douglas’ wife says she always suspected that something was amiss at the morgue, saying that her husband often came home drunk and "smelling like sex."

Although she called his supervisor on multiple occasions, she was told not to worry, and that anything that happened on the property was “county business.”
