Everyman Cited After Putting 8 Bullets in His Crappy Computer

  • In a totally relatable move, a Colorado man took his underperforming computer into an alley behind his house and pumped its guts full of lead.

    Unfortunately for our hero everyman, that’s not exactly legal.

    Colorado Springs Police say that 37-year-old Lucas Hinch was cited for discharging a firearm within city limits – which is against the law in Colorado Springs.

    “Man Kills His Computer,” reads the official summary. “Officers responded to shots fired in the alley of 2200 W Colorado Av. Investigation revealed a resident was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months. He took the computer into the back alley and fired 8 shots into the computer with a handgun, effectively disabling it.”

    Any regrets, Mr. Hinch? Hell no!

    “It was glorious. Angels sung on high,” he told the LA Times. “It was premeditated, oh, definitely. I made sure there wasn’t anything behind it and nothing to ricochet.”

    You never know when the next blue screen of death will push you over the edge.

    Police took his gun, and he has to go to court to face a possible fine – but at least he’s in better shape than his old Dell. But next time you want to destroy a crappy machine, just opt for the Office Space technique.
