Captain Tony Grider dies from burn-related injuries he suffered last month. While helping the Campbellsville University band with their video challenge on August 21, 2014, four members of the Fire and Rescue Department in Campbellsville, Kentucky were shocked by power lines as two stood in a ladder bucket spraying water on the band and two more were on the ground. During the challenge Grider and another fireman were inside a bucket on a ladder above the students. When they finished dumping water, the students left and the firefighters began moving the ladder, authorities told CNN. The bucket came close to power lines and shocked the men, officials said. Two other men on the ground were also shocked as they tried to lower the bucket to the ground. Grider was 41 years old and leaves behind a wife and children.
Video shows a ‘semi-naked man wearing a burka’ performing the ice bucket challenge outside the Zakariyya Mosque in Peace Street, Daubhill, in Bolton, Greater Manchester. The man, wearing only his underwear, socks, shoes and a makeshift headscarf, makes several offensive remarks about Islam. Another man with him can be heard telling him to hurry up, to which the man responds that he is not scared. The video has been removed from Youtube and Facebook, and police are investigating.

Carey offers $10,000 dollars to anyone who can identify the teenagers who played a cruel ice-bucket challenge prank on an autistic boy. Carey is upset over the video posted online, of fellow high school students dumping – instead of a cold water – a bucket full of feces and cigarette butts on the boy’s head. The money will be paid as either a direct reward, or will be donated to the organization “Autism Speaks”.
WTF? Just saw this. Horrendous. These kids should be arrested and expelled. If the Bay Village PD wants to start a reward fund to find who did this, contact me. I’ll donate $10k.

50 Cent accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but put a spin on it. Standing next to a bucket of ice that he never actually comes into contact with, 50 Cent delivered his own challenge to Mayweather:
If you can read one page out of a Harry Potter book… I’ll donate $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to….
Mayweather suggests the rapper donate that money to the family of Mike Brown, who was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo.
Unidentified teens convince an autistic 14 year old from a Cleveland high school to take part in the ice bucket challenge, then dump a bucket of excrement, spit, and cigarette butts on the boy’s head. The perpetrators film the incident using the boy’s cell phone, and post the clip on a social media site. Police Chief Mark Spaetzel, of Bay Village, Ohio where the boy lives and goes to school heads the investigation to discover who initiated and filmed the act, and to apprehend them.
To me, it’s reprehensible … that these kids would take advantage of a vulnerable teenager.
