It’s all Twilight’s Fault!
The headline is tongue-in-cheek in terms what I expect some will actually say about the following:
Via the AP: Assault suspect claims to be vampire
A 20-year-old Gadsen man charged with burning a "V” into the face of a teenager has told police he believes he is a vampire.
Evan Francis Brown was arrested on a warrant for second-degree assault, a felony. Police say in October Brown heated a fork or a spoon on the stove and used it to burn a "V” into a 17-year-old’s forehead. He allegedly tied the teen up, tricking him into believing they were playing a game.
Police say the teenager also had cigarette burns on his face and arms and had been beaten.
Um….there are a few ways to kill a vampire: Stake through the heart. Sunlight. Decapitation. You can scare them off with garlic, holy water, and silver implements.
But burning a V into their forehead? That’s just going to piss them off.
Are we making jokes about an adult tying up and torturing a juvenile? It’s possible that scar could be on the kid’s face for life. Doesn’t strike me as funny.
