Two hitmen were arrested for planning to castrate and assassinate Justin Bieber after a New York concert.

Police: NM men plotted to kill Justin Bieber

Hit man Tanner Ruane, 23, said he was disappointed the murder didn’t happen.

The National Post reported:

After New Mexico police revealed they’d uncovered an alleged murder-for-hire plot to kill Justin Bieber, the Canadian pop star’s management has released a statement saying they take “every precaution to protect and insure the safety of Justin and his fans.”

News of the bizarre assassination plot made news around the world Wednesday after Albuquerque’s KRQE reported that Mark Staake, 41, and his nephew Tanner Ruane, 23, had allegedly been hired to castrate and murder the singer.

The puppet master behind the scheme is Dana Martin — currently serving a 978-year term for rape and murder — who allegedly turned to Staake in Las Cruces prison, offering him a $2,500 bounty for each of Bieber’s testicles, according to a police affidavit.

The alleged plot was planned right down to the paisley tie that would be used to strangle the star. The tie was important because it’s what Martin had used in his last murder, the affidavit claims. After the strangulation, the two men were to carry out the castration.

Staake and Ruane were allegedly going to strike after Bieber’s New York City concert at Madison Square Garden in November.

When police arrested the would-be hitmen in Vermont on outstanding warrants last month, Ruane was found to be in possession of a set of Fiskars DuraSharp garden shears.

That is just nuts.

  1. What? WHAT?? You mean, HE DIDN’T HAVE A GUN?? Oh seriously, GP, you KNOW that a gun is the only thing that commits murder!

  2. World gone madddddddddddd

  3. Man putting handgun under pillow for protection unintentionally shoots wife in the face

    “A 45-year-old Westtown, Pennsylvania man was preparing to go to bed. He was putting a .45 caliber Kimber semi-automatic handgun under his pillow when he unintentionally discharged the gun, shooting his wife in the face . . .”

  4. Justin Bieber has testicles?

  5. Why would they castrate the guy if they’re gonna kill him anyways? Unless they wanted to keep a trophy.

  6. They should’ve known it was a set up when they were told they needed garden shears.

  7. “That is just nuts.”

    Pun intended?

  8. That’s it!! Time to ban gardening shears because they can be used as a weapon.

  9. Garden shears? All they needed was tweezers.

  10. More insanity —

    I’ll Bet Israel Knows

    [What is important is quietly going away if we let it. Obama is responsible
    for the murders of Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata in his illegal, international
    gun-running enterprise, and Obama is even more responsible for allowing
    Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty to be
    murdered. And the America media is doing nothing to get to the bottom of
    it. They wouldn’t know what true investigative journalism is if it walked up
    and introduced itself.

    Chaffetz: State Dept Hiding Benghazi Survivors

    [“My understanding is that we still have some people in the hospital. I’d
    like to visit with them and wish them nothing but the best but the State
    Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are—or
    even how many there are,” Rep. Chaffetz said. "I don’t know who they
    are. I don’t know where they live. I don’t know what state they’re from.
    I don’t even know how many there are. It doesn’t seem right to me."]


  12. #3 Maria. My money says this was intentional.

  13. How do you castrate someone who doesn’t have balls?

  14. HITMEN? :lol:

    Sure, :lol:

  16. hitmen, more like NUT jobs.

  17. The National Pruning Shears Association wants you to know that Justin Bieber should have stabbed these fellows first.

  18. The word “strange” doesn’t even begin to describe this plot.

  19. What was the motive? Or was there even one? I’ve heard of prison inmates being able to file trivial lawsuits to harass their victims but this one takes the cake. A murderer, serving more than a dozen life sentences, is able to hire hit men to kill a seventeen year old mouthy kid he doesn’t even know. I am supposing he want the publicity. Just imagine a mob of teeny-boppers storming that prison and lynching the guy who killed their idol.
