***WARNING: GRAPHIC CASES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY BELOW***

What goes around, comes around!

We can't believe that we live in a world where humans feel the need to viciously murder other living creatures, and Cecil the Lion is just the latest case of animal cruelty in the news.

Walter Palmer, the American dentist who killed Cecil, may still be in hiding, but we're hoping that he will have to eventually face poaching charges in Zimbabwe once he resurfaces.

However, even though Walter has yet to face any immediate legal ramifications for his crime, you can take solace knowing that his vicious slaying has caused his Minnesotan dental practice to close.

But if you're like us and enjoy seeing people who harm animals get what's coming to them, then you're in luck, because we've put together a list of five high profile animal rights cases where justice was served!

Life has imitated art in a truly heinous way.

On Wednesday, Law & Order director Jason Alexander (not to be confused with the Seinfeld star) was arrested in New York on child porn charges. So disgusting!

According to authorities, the shamed director was charged with one felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child less than sixteen years of age. Alexander could face up to seven years for his crimes.

At this time, Jason, who worked on the series from 1994-2005, posted $10,000 bail and is expected in court on November 19.

We'll keep you posted as this terrible case progresses.

Nick Gordon Spotted Wearing 'Wedding' Ring Following The Death Of Bobbi Kristina

Sad times.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Nick Gordon was spotted wearing his "wedding" ring for the first since the recent passing of his fiancée Bobbi Kristina. The devastated Nick was seen walking around Florida with his mother, Michelle Gordon, proudly wearing the band.

We're not shocked by this public display of commitment, as Nick claimed that Bobbi was his wife following her tragic incident back in January — despite the fact the two were never legally hitched.

The 25-year-old is currently a person of interest in the R&B scion's death and faces a $10 million lawsuit from Miz Brown's estate. In fact, Nick was banned from visiting the Grammy winner's daughter's bedside when she was in her medically induced coma.

The late starlet is scheduled to be buried next to her mother Whitney Houston in New Jersey following the funeral service in Georgia where she lived with her man. However, Nick is NOT invited to the funeral.

BK's passing comes three years after her legend mother's eerily similar death back in 2012 where Miz Houston was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Though the Brown and Houston family have rejected Bobbi Kristina's former flame, Nick's mother has been steadfast in her support for her son.

Things are certainly not looking up, as the district attorney circles in on manslaughter charges. It's said that Gordon previously admitted that the pair did drugs on the morning that the "love of his life" was found unresponsive in their townhouse. Yikes!

Things still remain unclear on what exactly happened that fateful day even after the most recent autopsy report.

We hope for those who loved Bobbi Kristina that the truth reveals itself sooner than later. Our thoughts are with her friends and family during this trying time.

Despite Bobbi Kristina's Autopsy Results — District Attorney Reportedly Still Seeks To Go After Nick Gordon For Manslaughter

Oh no!

Despite Bobbi Kristina's recent autopsy results, things are still looking bad for the late star's boyfriend, Nick Gordon. As the R&B scion's love faces a lawsuit from her estate, it appears that the District Attorney's office is also looking to press charges for involuntary manslaughter.

Yikes!

Sources relayed that Nick may be charged for his part in acquiring drugs for the starlet on the day she was found unresponsive and facedown in the bathtub.

As we previously reported, the results of BK's autopsy won't help the D.A.'s case as they will only prove

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Delivers Controversial Opinions About The Curious Death Of Sandra Bland! Says WHAT Was Used As A Weapon??

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersR.I.P.Elisabeth HasselbeckSad SadViral: NewsControversy

We don't think this is a fight you want to start, Elisabeth.

The curious death of Sandra Bland in a Texas jail cell is just the latest example of proposed police brutality in America, but it seems as though some people are trying to place blame on the victim. Yet again.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is known for her outrageous Conservative viewpoints, but on FOX & Friends this week, the anchor questioned whether or not Sandra deserved to be arrested for potentially using a cigarette as a weapon against the officer.

If you're unfamiliar with the case, 28-year-old Sandra was arrested by 30-year-old trooper Brian Encinia in Waller County, TX on July 10 after he stopped her for switching lanes without a signal and subsequently assaulting him — even though eyewitnesses say Brian was actually the one who kicked Sandra to the ground.

Three days later, Sandra was found dead in her cell, with police claiming she committed suicide by hanging, which was supported by the medical examiner.

However, the FBI is now looking into the incident as a possible murder, because Sandra's mugshot seems to be questionable and the motion-censored camera outside her cell never activated until after police found her body.

Many Americans are protesting the suicide ruling saying that Sandra was killed because of her race, and Elisabeth playing devil's advocate just comes off as rude.

Check out her rather controversial suggested timeline of what happened to Sandra Bland (below).
