Kids having kids — that sounds like a lurid tabloid headline, but sometimes, it really is true. Shockingly, children as young as age 5 have been known to get pregnant and give birth. Precocious puberty is a condition where a child’s body develops very early in life – before the age of 8 when it comes to girls. It’s not that uncommon.

A&E has strayed pretty far from the Arts & Entertainment focus that it began with. Nowadays, it’s all reality TV and big ratings. Most reality TV shows, from Hoarders to Live PD, purport to have some kind of positive goal. It’s about drawing attention to a good cause, so they say.

Passengers trust they’ll be taken to their destination safely at a fair price, and the driver has to trust that their rides will pay the fare and not cause trouble. Sadly, as we all know, faith in human nature is often misplaced, resulting in the kinds of taxi horror stories we’ve found all over the web.

To criminal minds, it’s the ultimate temptation, and to some, it’s a challenge that’s just waiting for the right approach. Any bank robbery can be a dangerous and even traumatic situation for the employees and customers who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But, in certain cases, the circumstances are uniquely shocking.
