Stop me if you've heard this one before…
The Guardian reports two men, Paul Martin Hurst, 33, and Cary Lee Edwards, 35, attacked their roommate, 31-year-old Zachary Swanson because he was talking shit on their favorite band, ICP. We've all gotten into arguments over music before but it never got to the point where I ended up getting arrested for attempted murder and assault.
You see, Swanson recently got a tattoo (while the article doesn't explicitly state it, I assume it's an ICP tattoo) and apparently his two brilliant roommates felt Swanson didn't "earn" the tattoo and that he "had to pay the consequences." Those consequences included beating Swanson, trying to carve the tattoo out of his arm and setting his arm on fire!! They also gave him enough of a beating for Swanson to suffer "fractures to his nasal area and face, 11 broken ribs, a lacerated liver and bleeding in his brain." The cherry on top is there was so much damage to his arm that it had to be amputated from the elbow down.
All over a tattoo? Stay classy, juggalos!
Our thoughts go out to Swanson and his family, and we hope he can be able to afford to never live with another juggalo again.
