  • US Taking a Tougher Stance Against Animal Cruelty

    iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- People who hate animal cruelty should be happy about an important change in federal law that will go into effect next year.

    Beginning in 2015, the FBI will consider animal cruelty as a crime against society, falling into the same category as homicide, kidnapping, burglary and arson. Animal cruelty crimes will also be included in the Uniform Crime Report -- National Incident Based Reporting System.

    The change should help law enforcement authorities get a better handle on understanding the motivation behind these crimes as well as stopping future ones from occurring.

  • Luke Bryan Finds "Bro Country" Label Aggravating and Derogatory

    Image Courtesy CMALuke Bryan may sing about trucks and girls and drinking beer on a few of his songs, but don't you dare call his music "bro country."  Luke tells ABC News he finds that term aggravating and derogatory of the country music genre as a whole.

    He says, "Yeah, do I sing about a truck and a beer on one song, but then do I sing about a completely different subject matter. I mean, listen to the whole album and don't judge me on one song."
