Well, that’s not very nice. A gay couple is filing a human rights complaint against a Chicago-area taxi company after they were kicked out of the vehicle for sharing a kiss. The driver demanded that Matthew McCrea, 30, and Steve White, 29, exit the cab, claiming that it was “public transportation” and therefore, they could not kiss. They refused to leave the cab and called 911. When police arrived, the driver claimed the two were “making sex.” The situation was diffused and the driver let go…but he was fined more than $1,500 later. [Gawker

A 13-year-old girl in Pakistan was forced to dig her way out of a grave after being raped and buried alive.
