Listen, everyone has their issues with computers, and we all know they’re going to be our overlords in the future, but taking out your frustrations by firing a few shots into the offending technology won’t go over well with law enforcement.

According to Colorado Springs police (scroll down) , a 37-year-old man was cited for discharging a weapon within city limits after he took his computer into a back alley and shot it for being insubordinate.

“Investigation revealed a resident was fed up with fighting his computer for the last several months,” the report on the police blotter reads. “He took the computer into the back alley and fired 8 shots into the computer with a handgun, effectively disabling it.”

Police tell the Colorado Springs Gazette that the man didn’t realize he was breaking the law when exacting his revenge. A judge will now decide a penalty for the citation.
