If you want to be master of your domain, do NOT live in a neighborhood governed by a homeowners association. If you choose to do so, just remember that things like this could happen to you.  As reported by (Nashville, Tennessee):

A Brentwood homeowners association is threatening to sue a family if they don’t take down a wheelchair ramp in the next week.

After Michael Broadnax suffered a stroke late last summer, his wife became the head of the household.

Yes, of course you’ve heard of helicopter moms. But what about helicopter dads? They don’t get a lot of ink. This gent is the exception! As reported by The Guardian

An Italian father who forced his teenage daughters to ski competitively and eat a macrobiotic diet because he was concerned they were too fat has been found guilty of abuse and sentenced to nine months in prison.

The unusual case in Turin may set a precedent in how Italian courts define psychological abuse of children. There are no similar cases of abuse on record.

Yes, some people want rules in their neighborhood.  And that’s why some people move into condos or neighborhoods governed by homeowners associations. But there are some really stupid rules – like this one! And some of you will say that these folks could have read the rules in advance, but nobody reads the rules! Do you read everything you sign (or click!)?  This is just an overreach by a group of folks who clearly have nothing better to do. As reported at

The Kimry Moor Homeowners Association has filed a lawsuit against residents David and Arna Orlando in Onondaga County Supreme Court because they are parking their 2014 black Ford 150 pickup in their driveway at 511 Kimry Moor, just outside the village of Fayetteville.

The association wants an injunction to stop the couple from parking their pickup in the driveway of their home.

Normally it would be nice for a father to text his daughter. Here, not so much. As reported by

The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday reversed a lower court’s issuance of a domestic abuse protection order for a 16-year-old girl against her father, saying his vulgar, obscenity-laced texts did not constitute abuse.

The decision came in the case of man listed in the opinion as “William N.” Court records indicate that the girl’s mother sought a domestic abuse protection order for her daughter earlier this year after the father sent the girl texts calling the girl, her boyfriend and her mother vulgar names.

The night could most succinctly be described as “0 for 2”.  To call this gent a “robber” would be stretching the definition of the term, though it wasn’t for lack of trying. As reported by KUTV (Utah):

A man entered a Subway restaurant at 5550 W. 3500 S. just after 9 a.m., demanded money from the employee and indicated that he had a weapon, West Valley City Police said. During the holdup, the employee asked the suspect to wait and walked to the back of the store. When the worker didn’t return, the suspect became impatient and left.

Clearly the demand was not threatening enough. So …

fbomb f-bomb f bomb
You would think the world ended. So some police officers dropped the f-bomb for emphasis. Is this really a big story? Clearly The Juice doesn’t think so. As reported by (Chattanooga, Tennessee):

It’s a caught-on-tape moment you have to hear to believe. Two Dalton Police Officers hurling the f-bomb and other four-letter words at children on a school bus. Now those cops are in a heap of trouble with not only parents – but the city as well.

Dalton Police Chief Jason Parker says they usually keep things like these under wraps. But this time, he says he felt the community needed to know what happened. Many we spoke with say an officer should never use offensive language to make a point, even if the children themselves are using four-letter words.

If more people were as suspicious as this “good samaritan,” The Juice would move to an island. Hell, he might just do it any way. As reported by

A loving husband triggered a massive police presence on Tuesday at a Cricket Store in southeast Houston.

Police received a call that someone in the store was being held against their will.

Everyone has heard a dog referred to as “man’s best friend.” This lady sure treated her “best friend” very, very badly. And the kind person who tried to intervene didn’t fare too well either. As reported by The Hamilton Spectator (Ontario):

Police were called to the area of King Street East and Proctor Boulevard around 3:30 p.m. Monday for reports of a woman punching her dog and dragging it by the leash. Callers said the dog was injured and bleeding.

You punched a dog? How can someone do that? But wait – there’s more.

A woman who witnessed the alleged assault on the dog confronted the owner about what she was doing. The Good Samaritan was then punched in the face by the suspect.

You punched the woman who tried to stop you from punching your dog? This woman has some serious anger issues. Hey Lady, The Juice suggests that you get a punching bag (an actual punching bag), and some therapy!

Police found the suspect and the injured dog at home. The one-year-old brown pup named Magnum was given to the SPCA.

A 23-year-old woman was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals and assault. Police have not released her name. She was released on a promise to appear.

Not cool at all. Here’s the source.

Sorry, The Juice gets worked up when a cyclist is involved. He gets that a lot of people just don’t like cyclists, though he doesn’t fully understand why. But this? As reported by (Louisville, KY):

A Louisville man is accused of assault after police say he intentionally struck a bicyclist with his vehicle.

Now you can see why The Juice is very angry.

The source for today’s Juice? A petition that came The Juice’s way. No doubt this law will end homosexuality in Alabama… Clearly a class adhering to the requirements of this law cannot be called sex “education.” The law is Section 16-40A-2 of the Alabama Code:


… (c) Course materials and instruction that relate to sexual education or sexually transmitted diseases should include all of the following elements:

… (8) An emphasis, in a factual manner and from a public health perspective, that homosexuality is not a lifestyle acceptable to the general public and that homosexual conduct is a criminal offense under the laws of the state.

This is just stupid and wrong on so many levels. Who is this “general public” referring to? Not the American public. And “homosexual conduct is a criminal offense”? Sure, some of it is (sodomy). But what about two men holding hands? You can read the full text of this small-minded, bigoted law here.
