Look, I’m not a big fan of the kid’s music either… but it can’t be that bad! But maybe this is about those pants he wore on his date with Selena… a lot of people are still pissed about that, lol. Two fugitives have been arrested for plotting the murder and castration (what?! why?!) of pop star Justin Bieber. Apparently, the men were in cahoots with another criminal (who’s currently serving two life sentences for raping and killing a 15 year-old girl), so as ridiculous as all this sounds, I think these men were actually quite serious about their intentions.

E! has the story:
Two fugitives arrested last month, one in Vermont and the other in New York, had plotted to kill the teen pop idol and several other people, according to New Mexico’s KRQE News 13, which reports that investigators believe the two men were conspiring with a convicted murderer they met in prison.
The St. Albans Police Department in Vermont confirmed to E! News that Mark Staake, 41, and his nephew, Tanner Ruane, 23—both wanted in Albuquerque on charges of conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery with a deadly weapon—were picked up by State Police in Vermont and New York, respectively, and are now being investigated in connection with the alleged Bieber conspiracy.
“There is no credible evidence to suggest that any individual(s) in the greater St. Albans area were or are in any imminent danger presented by Ruane’s brief stay in St. Albans,” police said, also noting that they had identified the intended victims but were not releasing their names.
In response to the macabre news, Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, told Us Weekly: “We take every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin and his fans.”
Meanwhile, according to KRQE, the convicted killer who hatched the alleged plot is the one who ultimately detailed it to detectives.
Per KRQE, Dana Martin, who’s serving two life sentences for rape and the killing of a 15-year-old girl, told investigators that he had recruited Staake, who in turn recruited Ruane, to kill two people he knew in Vermont—but that the centerpiece of his plan was the murder (via strangulation with a paisley tie) and castration of Bieber and his bodyguard.
New Mexico State Police are now investigating the alleged criminal conspiracy.
Sooo creepy, right? I never really thought I cared about the Biebs one way or the other, but damn! I don’t want him getting jacked up by crazy fugitives! I’m glad to hear they caught these guys. Now, if they can just figure out who shot Biggie and Tupac, my faith in the American police may be restored. LOL, no it won’t. But still, they should find those guys.
What do you guys think of the Justin Bieber murder plot? Can you believe that this was real? And what song could these guys have possibly listened to, that would have made them go this route?! Seriously, though. Let’s keep the teen dream safe; I’d hate to see the state of this Union if the Beliebers suffered the unthinkable tragedy.
