The Colorado Springs Gazette reported 37-year-old Lucas Hinch was ticketed April 20th for firing a weapon within city limits. But no murder charges are pending for the fatal shooting, because the deceased victim was his Dell desktop PC. The police report said Hinch “was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months” and shot it in the alley behind his home just before 7 p.m., “effectively disabling it.”
Hinch told the Los Angeles Times he has no regrets. “It was glorious,” he said. “Angels sung on high.” And speaking of “high”, it’s interesting to note the shooting occurred on 4/20 in Colorado – not that we are inferring Mr. Hinch was partaking of recreational marijuana. Stoned, drunk or sober, who among us has not wanted to kill, maim or torture a PC when it blue screens just before the climax of an exciting video? But before you grab the Glock, remember that buying a new computer is expensive, and transferring files and reinstalling programs takes a lot of time. A better move would be to download PC Matic and get your computer back to peak performance.
