That kid in the orange jumpsuit is a Slipknot fan; makes sense, seeing as the band used to wear such jumpsuits back in the day, right? Only, he’s not wearing an orange jumpsuit because he’s a Slipknot fan. He’s wearing that orange jumpsuit because he’s in fucking jail.
His name is Kyle Smith. He is 17 and has been accused of killing his grandparents with a machete. Later, police said he videotaped their bodies and then set their Midwest City, Oklahoma, home on fire.
Reports claim that police seized a number of items of evidence from the crime scene, including a “demonic drawing,” handwritten notes, a novelty bullet, four knives, a dagger and a Slipknot CD. The CD was seized as it features a pentagram on the cover.
Kyle is being held in Oklahoma County jail, and prosecutors plan to charge him with his grandparents’ murder by April 11. According to Chief Brandon Clabes, Smith “admitted to investigators when he was arrested that he was into heavy metal music.”
Unfortunately, it’s fucktards like this Kyle Smith who give heavy metal a bad name. First of all, Slipknot isn’t really a heavy metal band anymore; they’ve morphed more into a hard rock band in recent years. And the fact that the kid likes metal has nothing to do with the fact that he’s a crazy fuck who killed his grandparents.
Yet, something tells me that “heavy metal” will be blamed for his psychotic actions. I mean, who kills their grandparents — but much more, who kills their grandparents and then uses a cell phone to shoot video that shows the couple’s bodies on the floor and the end of a machete poking at the heads and eyes of the bodies?
This kid is troubled and needs to go to prison with the big boys. And by big, I mean big in the pants.
