What the EFF.
Apparently, the 32-year-old man, Aaron Wayne Stillday, approached the child after he was leaving his daycare center with the iPad in hand.
He screamed at the child:
If you're not watching FOX News, you're apparently missing out on some heated conversations about Beyoncé!

The R&B mogul (who was on the show to discuss his new book on meditation) had to defend B because The Factor host has a major problemo with her putting out a single so seXXXy!
Watch yourself, Bill! We don’t take too kindly to people badmouthing our gurl!

Tommy2Stix does something nobody else on the scene is doing: he's a self-described “motivational cripple” hip-hop artist, and he's bringing inspiration to the table, as well as his flow.

It seems that cats aren't the only ones with nine lives!
This hounddog was found in February 2011 by British soldiers in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and boy was he a mess!
The little guy had his ears cut off, which is traditional for a fighting dog, but he was also stabbed and a car ran him over. The British patrol picked him up, and doctors treated the wounds. Then later, they found Wylie again with his muzzle cut open! After they fixed that, patrollers found Wylie with more injuries another time! The third visit, he suffered from a chest stab wound and had part of his tail cut off.
But Wylie is clearly a survivor, and now he and owner Sarah Singleton are going to compete in the Crufts dog show during the Scruffts grand finale on Friday! His owner says the mutt is a “gentle, trusting and loving dog.”
What a heartwarming story! And triumphant! Go get ‘em, Wylie!
