A group of young Polynesian men were doused in the face with pepper spray by police officers in Utah, for simply perfroming a Haka after a college American football match.
The Huffington Post reports that police in Roosevelt, are now being accused of over reacting and that around a dozen men along with bystanders and spectators were hit with the spray when the Haka, (a traditional Maori dance), was being performed.
Apparently the group of fans were trying to boost their side’s morale after they finished the game and season without a single victory. But the police misinterpreted their actions.
One fan, Rem McCormack, who was interviewed in a deserted warehouse, was quoted as saying:
“See, this is our time to dance. It is our way of celebrating life. It’s the way it was in the beginning. It’s the way it’s always been. It’s the way it should be now.”
He then theatrically jumped off the bonnet of his yellow Volkswagen Beetle, took of his sweatshirt and angrily cartwheeled through the warehouse.

This is quite literally heartbreaking.
The Huffington Post is reporting a story about a couple from Iowa who died an hour apart holding hands in their hospital beds. Norma, (90), and Gordon Yeager, (94), were admitted after they were involved and injured in a car accident. Staff apparently gave the couple a shared room where they were allowed to hold hands in adjacent beds during their final moments. Gordon passed away first but his heart monitor continued to register a pulse, medical staff explained to family members that because the couple were still holding hands Norma’s heart was beating through Gordon.
*squints eyes at monitor, clears throat, holds breath*
Norma died one hour later. The couple leave behind a large family after a staggering 72 years of marriage. In the Huffington Post article Gordon was quoted:
‘I can’t go until she does because I gotta stay here for her.’
*gets up from desk, looks for source of smoke in the room, opens a window to dry streaming eyes*
