It looks like all the NSA spying — including wiretaps — has done little to prevent terrorist attacks over the years. An analysis of 225 terrorism cases in the U.S. were studied by the non-profit New America Foundation, revealing that the NSA was able to crack only one case of possible terror: Basaaly-Moalin, who sent money to a terrorist group in Somalia. The NSA gained national attention when it was revealed that the program accumulated phone numbers with length and times of every American’s phone call in the U.S. last year. Was it all for naught?

After the murder of his family members in Bangui, a man ate the flesh off of another man in an act of revenge.

In an interview with BBC, Mad Dog says that he attacked the alleged suspect, dragging him off a bus and burning him alive in the street. Others recorded the incident and have footage of Mad Dog eating the man’s leg. [BBC News]

At least 25 people are behind bars with life sentences due to selling marijuana. The Human Solution, a pot advocacy group, believes that people who are in jail for selling marijuana deserve lighter prison sentences or none at all. “If we’re not sure whether this drug should even be an illegal narcotic, why are we sending people to jail for life for it?” said former Assistant U.S. Attorney General David Zlotnick. Meanwhile, Colorado has raked in millions after making pot legal at the start of the year. [Huff Post]
