Juggalo Gang Member Faces Attempted Murder Charge in Kalispell Stabbing – Murders because it felt good

A California man faces three felony charges, including attempted murder, after police say he stabbed a Kalispell homeowner during a Dec. 12 home invasion because “it felt good.”

Prosecutors with the Flathead County Attorney’s Office have charged Dante Kirpal Kier, 19, of Santa Barbara, Calif., with attempted deliberate homicide, aggravated burglary and assault with a weapon. All three charges are felonies.

According to charging documents filed in Flathead District Court, homeowner Brian Bay was fixing the dishwasher in his southeast Kalispell house when he went out to the garage to get a tool. His wife and children were home as well.

When he returned inside, Bay said he saw Kier in the hallway. Bay confronted the intruder, who had a weapon in his hand. During the confrontation, Kier allegedly stabbed Bay in the upper arm and inside his mouth.

Prosecutors say Kier then tried to stab Bay in the ribs numerous times with what turned out to be a wood-handled steak knife. Investigators said the blade was “bent severely” after the stabbing.

Bay wrestled Kier to the ground and held him while his wife called the police at about 9:35 p.m. Officers arrived and arrested Kier. Police say Bay’s wife and children were unharmed during the incident.

Bay was taken to Kalispell Regional Medical Center where he received treatment for his injuries, which included the stab wounds to his arm and mouth, as well as bruising on his chest.

Once Kier was taken into custody, court records state that he agreed to talk with investigators without an attorney, making several voluntary statements about entering the Bays’ home and that he had “attempted murder” because “it felt good.”

When police officers canvassed the neighborhood, several of the Bays’ neighbors said they found notes on their windows that said, “Your house is being watched tonight by … the creeps.”

Kier also allegedly told police that he is a member of the Insane Clown Posse gang, and referred to himself as a Juggalo. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment, law enforcement in at least 21 states have identified criminal Juggalo sub-sets.

Juggalos are typically fans of the Insane Clown Posse, a hip-hop duo from Detroit. The duo has denounced violence in previous media interviews.

According to court documents, Kier has a conviction in Santa Barbara for entering a non-commercial dwelling in 2010. Charging documents also state that Kier’s father called KPD and said his son has a history of drug abuse and mental illness and “he believes Kier should stay in jail out of concern for the public and his son.”

Kier is in custody at the Flathead County Detention Center on $500,000 bail. Because a dangerous weapon was allegedly used in the crime, Kier faces up to 110 years in prison for attempted deliberate homicide alone.

  1. Wow ppl r stupid and this guy should not be seen as a rep for the Juggalos and juggalettes we are a peacefull group.

  2. If you think because this person clams he’s a juggalo & kills someone that he is really a juggalo or part of a gang ? IF YOUR THAT DUMB THEN THE WORLD REALLY HAS A PROBLEM. Let me brake it down for you IF that is a big word IF Juggalos are really a gang then why do only a few of them even commit crimes ? THE ANSWER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU. There not a gang it is a group acting alone that has nothing to do with the rest. IN CASE YOU WERE STILL DUMB TO UNDERSTAND THAT BECAUSE ONE PERSON OR PERSONS CLAMMING THEY ARE SOMETHING DON’T MEAN THEY REALLY ARE OR HAVE ANYTHING TO REALLY DO WITH IT I MEAT THE KID YOUR TALKING ABOUT AND HE ISN’T OR WASN’T EVER A JUGGALO.

  3. Dante Kirpal Kier has also been know to have ties to other gangs


  4. Now this clown can go to prison for the rest of his life since he’s made it to the “big time.” I wish we were just executing them after a speedy trial like back in the old days though instead of charging us a fortune to house these miscreants for the rest of their natural life everytime they kill a good person or try to.

  5. hahahaha fucking dante
    i knew he stabbed someone and was in jail but this is the first time iv seen him in a news article (though a juggalo news article). what a crazy mofo. u should see some of the shit he wrote me from jail. fucking nuts. funny thing is i dont think he’s really a juggalo. or at least he wasnt when i knew him

  6. I used to live with this guy, really good friend of mine. He was a really nice guy until he became a queer ass juggahoe.

    Kill juggahoes! Watch them burn!!
