AP Headline of the Day

Colorado Police Pepper-Spray Misbehaving Boy, 8

At first blush, this just appears to be another incident in the decline of collective sanity. But then you read the story, and the kid sounds like a seriously holy terror. And self-aware:
When asked about the pepper spray and what he did, Aidan said: "I kind of deserved it."
The story end this way, with mom agreeing:
Paramedics were treating his red, irritated face with cool water when his mother arrived.

According to the report, Mandy Elliott asked her son what he did.

When he told her he had been hit with pepper spray, she is quoted as saying, "Well, you probably deserved it."
