Insane clown posse sings about hurting people in education , this leads to Juggalo gang member actions while he pleads not guilty to stabbing Flathead High teacher
KALISPELL – The teenager who allegedly broke into a Kalispell family’s home in December and stabbed a Flathead High School teacher pleaded not guilty Thursday to three felony offenses, including attempted murder.
Dante Kirpal Kier, 19, appeared for the arraignment hearing in Flathead County District Court. The hearing had twice been postponed until Kier could be evaluated by a mental health professional, who recently determined that he is competent to stand trial. Kier faces charges of attempted deliberate homicide, aggravated burglary and assault with a weapon.
The charges relate to a Dec. 12 home invasion in southeast Kalispell, during which high-school teacher Brian Bay was stabbed. According to court records, Kier admitted to the crime, telling investigators with the Kalispell Police Department that he broke into the residence intent on killing the homeowner because “it felt good.”
Records state that Bay was fixing a dishwasher at the time of the burglary and went into his garage to retrieve a tool; when he went back inside the home, he found Kier in the hallway holding a wooden-handled steak knife.
The homeowner confronted Kier but the intruder allegedly stabbed him in the upper arm and inside the mouth. He also tried stabbing Bay in the ribs “numerous times,” but the man wrestled Kier to the ground while his wife called police. The couple’s children were also home but were not injured. Bay was treated at Kalispell Regional Medical Center and released.
Kier grew up in the Kalispell area, but until recently had been living in Santa Barbara, Calif., where he has a criminal conviction for entering a non-commercial dwelling in 2010. He returned to the Flathead Valley last fall to reconcile with his mother.
Kier’s father, George Kier, said his son has a history of mental illness and was living at a psychiatric hospital in California shortly before returning to Montana. ( WHY ARE HIS PARENTS LETTING A PERSON WITH MENTAL ILLNESS LISTEN TO ICP – BAD PARENTS)
In the weeks leading up to his arrest, Kier’s psychotic behavior had been escalating, his father said, and resulted in a 72-hour commitment to Pathways Treatment Center in Kalispell. He was also arrested for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Kier’s mother and stepfather obtained orders of protection against the teen because he threatened to kill them, according to Kier’s mother, who asked that her name not be published.
Police officers canvassed the neighborhood after the home invasion and spoke with several neighbors who reported finding notes on their windows that stated “your house is being watched tonight by … the creeps.”
Kier also claimed to be a member of the Insane Clown Posse gang and referred to himself as a Juggalo, court records state. According to the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report, the Juggalos pay homage to the Detroit-based hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse and have recently been classified as a gang. The band is not associated with the gang.
Kier, who was staying at the Outlaw Hotel in Kalispell at the time of the alleged offense, remains in custody at the Flathead County Detention Center.
If convicted of attempted deliberate homicide, he faces a maximum punishment of life imprisonment.
