A group of teens in Baton Rouge, Louisiana squared off against a carrier for the United States Postal Service just after Christmas.

Four to five teens prompted the driver to stop the vehicle to fight off the group that was kicking and jumping in the moving delivery truck.

The event was caught on camera while onlookers stood and did nothing.

The cameraman later commented that the teens were upset that their gifts did not arrive by Christmas.

After the video was posted on Twitter, one teen was arrested while another got away with the altercation and the postman’s cell phone.

It is illegal for postal employees to carry firearms while on duty.

In the 1920’s, before the existence of the FBI, postal employees were allowed to carry handguns to protect their route. However, they did little to stop thefts and over $6,300,000 was stolen over a one year period.

In October of 1921, armed with shotguns and Colt .45’s, 2,200 United States Marines were deployed domestically for postal guard duty.

The Marines traveled with postal carriers and on trains while also protecting post offices.

The thefts stopped immediately.

While it would be entertaining to watch a gaggle of misfits scuffle with a Marine, it’s unlikely that the Corps will be assigned to mail duty anytime soon.

porch pirate

This holiday season has seen a huge spike in Internet shopping. So much so that porch pirating is now a problem.

A porch pirate will creep to your front door and steal your Internet purchased goods right off your porch in broad daylight.

The growing problem has companies and authorities scrambling try to stop the new rise in crime, but a Las Vegas man has a better solution.

After being the victim of theft, homeowner Eric Burdo decided to take matters into his own hands.

With the help of his dog, Burdo decided to box up a “smelly” gift for any would-be thief. The two went into the back yard and boxed up some fresh “number 2” from the dog and placed the package on the front porch.

The package sat for a couple of days, but sure enough, the pirates attacked. While away from the house two thieves came and stole the “gift”.

The homeowner caught the whole thing on video. Unfortunately there is no video of the criminals opening their gift.

See the video below from local KTNV.

Starbucks released the design of its annual Christmas cup–and it’s drawing a surprising amount of controversy.

This year’s design is a solid red cup, with the green and white Starbucks logo in the center.

Despite being in Christmas colors, the simplicity of the design–devoid of the holiday themes of years past–has led many to claim that Starbucks is quietly attempting to minimize Christmas.

Joshua Feuerstein, an Arizona pastor, took to social media to express his frustration with the international coffee giant.

In a video viewed 11 million times, Feuerstein asserts that Starbucks employees are “banned from saying Merry Christmas” and that the company is trying to play the Grinch this year because they “hate Jesus.”

He urged supporters to give their name as “Merry Christmas” when ordering at Starbucks, so baristas would have to write it on their cups.

Feuerstein, who gained attention last year when he demanded a Florida baker make him an anti-gay cake as a protest to businesses being forced to make cakes for gay weddings, is one of the louder voices on social media.

But he’s not alone in wondering whether Starbucks is intentionally trying to be less Christmas-focused with their Christmas design. In fact, many have taken Twitter by storm, using the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks, to express their displeasure.

Starbucks, however, claims that the design was simply for aesthetics–and wasn’t intended to offend:

“In the past, we have told stories with our holiday cups designs,” said Starbucks’ Vice President of Design & Content, Jeffrey Fields. “This year we wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories.”

He added: “Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays. We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it.”

But the controversy over Starbucks might be overblown. Starbucks continues to sell its seasonal “Christmas Blend” coffee, has holiday symbols on its gift cards, and even sells Advent calendars.

It’s also worth noting that the “Christmas symbols” from past years’ cup designs were more themed around winter than Christmas. While designs were on a bright red cup, they usually featured ice skates, snowflakes, and snowmen–there was never any religious or even overtly Christmas-specific imagery.

Regardless of the controversy, Starbucks seems to have no intention of changing their cups–so, this Christmas, it’s solid red or nothing.
