Halloween is almost a religious experience for some kids. You get free candy, and you can dress up as anything you want. The choices are endless.
Or portray their favorite movie heroes.
Halloween costumes are very gender specific. Girls still want to be witches and princesses, while boys like darker characters.
But not one 12-year-old from Surprise, Arizona. He wanted to trick-or-treat as a “gay Justin Bieber”. His mother thought his redundant use of the term “gay” was disrespectful of the former Youtube sensation.
His mother grounded him Halloween night after an argument, according to police spokesman Sgt. Mark Ortega.
He became belligerent after being grounded from trick-or-treating, grabbed a knife from his room, and threatened to kill her. She was able to disarm him without injury.
