Colorado: Police Summons Man Who Killed His Computer
“Shoot it” might have told his conscious to him when the 37-year-old Lucas Hinch from Colorado actually fired his computer to get rid of the irksome machine forever.
He, however, won’t have realized that even murder of his own computer could drag him to police station. The LA Times reports that Lucas was summoned by Colorado Springs police who came to know that the furious man expended 8 bullets to expire his 2012 Dell XPS 410. But why did he do that? The police knows this very well.
“He was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months,” according to the police log.
Despite understanding Hinch’s excuse, the police couldn’t save him from legal action. Firing a gun in Colorado Springs is against the law, the police explained.
Hinch is not resisting any legal action and is fully collaborating with the police told Lt. Catherine Buckley, a police spokeswoman. Los Angeles quotes her saying: “He had just gotten a new gun and had enough of his computer.”
He is not regretful at all, Hinch told the Los Angeles Times. “It was glorious,” he said. “Angels sung on high.”
Before reaching his new 9-mm pistol, the computer has sufficiently frustrated him. And then Hinch decided it was the right time to kill the discomforting enemy. Poor computer! But even in the extreme anger, Hinch ensured that he should perfectly aim his target and nothing else.
“It was premeditated, oh, definitely,” he said. “I made sure there wasn’t anything behind it and nothing to ricochet.”
Hinch has got rid of the problematic computer. Still, he has to rectify some problems. One of them is to pay fine, which the police deems very possible, and another is to get his pistol, which has been confiscated by the police, back.
