    Plot To Castrate And Kill Justin Bieber Thwarted

    A convicted killer serving two life sentences in New Mexico recruited a fellow inmate to help him castrate and murder the singer.

    Dana Martin recruited former fellow inmate Mark Staake and Staake's nephew Tanner Ruane to murder Justin Bieber.

    The plan was to castrate and murder the popstar during his Madison Square Garden concert in New York City last month.

    Oddly enough, Martin alerted authorities to his own plan, and Staake was arrested in Vermont.

    Ruane made it to New York City with a stash of tools and weapons, including pruning shears. He was intercepted by police before acting out the plan.

    And most importantly, Justin's manhood is still safe.
