    Two men gave Detroit police a fright of their lives as they entered a local station while wearing guns to file a complaint. The men, one of who is known only as 'Brandon', filmed themselves walking into Dearborn Police Station in Michigan to complain. In the video, which was filmed on a snowy day, one of the men, who is wearing a ski mask and glasses, says: 'We're going to go in and file a complaint because we were illegally pulled over about an hour ago.

    Vince Neil is NOT performing at a Donald Trump inauguration event, and it seems Vince was pretty confused about who asked him in the first place. Billboard posted a story a few hours ago saying Vince was performing at the actual inauguration at high noon on January 20th. Weird, right? Well, we spoke with Vince, who told us he and his band actually worked on getting Secret Service clearance to perform and he thought it was a done deal regardless of who won. Vince seems to be saying Hillary's people or the DNC were so confident in winning they booked...

    A new grading scale that redefines what constitutes an ďAĒ or an ďFĒ is causing strife and confusion in the Cotati-Rohnert Park school district. Some teachers and officials say it lowers the bar for student success, while others say it encourages students to succeed. The new system is called the equal interval scale. Essentially, it makes it harder to get a failing grade. It departs from the traditional A to F scale in which students receive Fís for scores below 59 percent. Instead, the scale awards Fís only for scores below 20 percent. ďMy mentor teacher, sheís not enjoying it....

    Local newspapers in the US don't cover education in any depth.

But you won't find anything about the nuts and bolts that determine whether you child learns to read, or learns anything at all. At first glance, this non-coverage can seem to be a mystery. Everybody's interested in education, especially parents and grandparents with kids in K-12. Probably one of the most valuable things that you could tell these people is...

He asked, "how could this deed be justified to future generations?"
