Colorado Police Cites Guy for Shooting His Computer

We have all been there, the old computer that should have been retired years ago is creating nothing but trouble. It bugs, hang, crashes and generally just doesn’t want to do as it should, and you get frustrated.

A man from Colorado Springs had that feeling and felt the frustration especially hard. The end-result after months of trouble, he shot his computer.

The police were called when people heard gunfire and after some initial investigation the police found the perpetrator. But it wasn’t a gang fight, robbery, or angry partner that caught the lover with another person, it was just a frustrated PC owner.

The 37-year-old Luca Hinch had taken his PC into a back alley after months of frustrations and yet another fight with his system. He couldn’t take it anymore and he simply shot it. I can count eight bullet holes, so it looks like he emptied his entire clip into the system.

Computers as such have no legal rights in our justice system, but it is illegal to just discharge your firearm within city limits, at least in Colorado. The man was cited for discharging the firearm within city limits, but won’t have to face any PC-slaughter allegations.
