This is so infuriating!

An orca (AKA killer whale) at an aquatic attraction in the Canary Islands was captured on video in distress, banging its head against the enclosure as it tried to escape its small confinement.

Ric O'Barry's organization, Dolphin Project, captured the video (above) at Loro Parque, an attraction in the Spanish island territory just off the coast of Africa, and it shows some distressing moments.

The attraction apparently has six orca whales on premises, all of which are owned by SeaWorld. Four were sent there to breed, while one was born at the park, and the sixth was rescued from the wild.

It's that sixth whale — named Morgan — that O'Barry's activists believe is the one banging its head against the enclosure wall in the video.

Activists contend that she is stressed and scared in her enclosure, with one citing a study that observed her having trouble with a larger, more aggressive male orca that is affecting her quality of life:

So Tragic — 14-Year-Old Girl Commits Suicide After 'Relentless' Bullying

Things like this just shouldn't happen.

Destiny Clark, a 14-year-old girl living with her family in Warrenton, Missouri, took her own life last week — and her mother and father now say the cause was relentless bullying by her classmates.

The girl and her parents had just moved to Warrenton from another city in Missouri, and Destiny was having trouble transitioning into making new friends for her eighth grade year at school.

Her mother, Stephanie, explained to reporters that the teenager was very concerned with what other people thought of her, and wanted everybody to get along:

"She wanted everybody to like her and she wanted to like everybody else."

Stephanie and her husband Kurtis tried everything — counseling, therapy, and even considering home school options — but Destiny's father said nothing worked:

"We felt very helpless. We talked to her and talked to her and talked to her. And just trying to get her to understand that it's, you know, let it roll off your back."

While the school district in Warrenton won't comment on Destiny's case, her parents revealed that she hanged herself two weeks ago on a pull-up bar in her room just days after the bullying led to the girl being involved in a fight at school.

Family members found Destiny, and cut her down from the bar; she was rushed to the hospital and while initially her loved ones remained optimistic that she might survive, she passed away several days later.

Ugh.

We are so, so sorry to have to report this horrible news as her parents have come forward hoping to raise awareness of Destiny's death, if only to prevent future instances like this with other teenagers.

With matching butterfly-themed tattoos to remember their daughter, Stephanie reveals a new mission in her life moving forward from the awful tragedy:

"Everybody started saying, ‘Fly high, Destiny,' And it caught on. We're trying to make the best of everything and hoping we can make an impact so other kids won't feel the way that she did."

So powerful.

End bullying!!! Destiny's life should not have ended this way!!

Massage Therapist Arrested For Sexually Assaulting Patient During Session, Claims He 'Misread The Moment'

There's no happy ending anywhere to be found in this story…

A massage therapist from Fort Collins, Colo. has been charged with allegedly sexually assaulting a client during a session earlier this month.

Marcos Duran was arrested on Monday after an unidentified client claimed he touched her genitals during a gym appointment at 9:30 p.m. local time on April 11, and new court documents are shedding some light on the circumstances that led to the assault.

Apparently, the victim was too distraught to actually approach Marcos after the fact, so an undercover cop pretended to be the woman and proceeded to call the masseur. That's when Marcos claimed that on the night of the incident he "misread the moment" and believed the patient was flirting with him.

It is worth noting, however, that after being asked to stop, the 30-year-old did comply immediately.

If found guilty, Marcos could face up to six years in jail for sexual assault and unlawful sexual contact.

We're just glad the Colorado courts are handling this properly and are not victim blaming, which is — unfortunately — often how you'd see a case like this go down!

Stay safe out there, everyone.

Former Republican Speaker Of The House Dennis Hastert Sentenced To 15 Months In Prison After Bribing Teenage Molestation Victim

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitikBusted!

A Republican who has a history of voting against gay rights but also has a history of molesting teenage boys? No such thing…

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Wednesday after admitting to molesting four teenage boys back when he was a wrestling coach at Yorkville Community Unit School District 115 in Illinois between 1965 and 1981.

Unfortunately, the 74-year-old's crimes had far surpassed the statute of limitations, but luckily U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Durkin was able to convict Dennis for a similar offense in a Chicago court.

Apparently, the Republican had been contacted by the FBI in 2015 as to why he had been withdrawing large amounts of money when he claimed he was being blackmailed by a person only identified as "Individual A."

Well as it turns out,
