Frustrated Colorado technophobe ‘kills’ computer, gets citation

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For killing the source of his frustration and abandoning the body in an alley, a Colorado man could be considered lucky for just receiving a citation — except his victim was his computer.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1Fc4rNX ) that 37-year-old Lucas Hinch was slapped with a ticket for discharging a weapon within city limits after he took his computer outside and shot it eight times.

Colorado Springs police Lt. Jeff Strossner, who issued the citation, says Hinch told him he had been fighting his computer for months before he decided to exact his revenge. Hinch accepted his citation without problem and told Strossner he did not realize he was breaking the law.

The penalty for the citation will be up to a judge.
