Man dresses as Mr. Magoo, shoots unmanned squad car five times (video!)

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Internet, Transportation, Videos

Now we’re not fans of speed traps, nor do we like getting trolled by unmanned squad cars, but when and if the time comes, we cut our losses and take the ticket. The thing is, not everyone will have the same reaction.

Recently, a man down in the Santa Fe area wasn’t too happy about the empty vehicle keeping tabs on him. Dressed as Mr. Magoo (we aren’t sure if this is intentional or not,) he decided to take his revenge out on the unmanned vehicle by shooting five rounds into it. Luckily, the Redflex-operated squad car didn’t suffer much damage, nor did the onboard camera! Check out the video above as Mr. Magoo goes on a rampage.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: HDTV

Elvis TVWe thought it most amusing when we learned that Elvis shot his TV when he would see Robert Goulet, but we guess this man took that kind of anger a bit too far. A man in Joplin, Mo. got so irritated at the DTV transition that when he lost his cable and couldn’t get the converter to work, he shot his television. Apparently, he had been drinking at the time, still that was an extreme reaction. He was charged with unlawful use of a firearm.

Son Shoots Parents When They Deny Him Halo

Daniel PetricTo teen Daniel Petric, Halo 3 is more than just a game. He became so angry at not being able to play it that he shot his father and killed his mother with his dad’s gun. Apparently, his parents didn’t want him to buy the game and caught him with it when he tried to sneak it into the house. Father Mark then put it in a lockbox in his closet that housed a 9mm handgun until his son retrieved both. Daniel’s lawyers claim their client has been under stress because after an accident and staph infection, he had been homebound for a year with nothing to do but watch TV and play video games. Daniel and Mark, can you say books?

Pega Shark Light Gun

Shark GunWhile we admit that some of us are overly pacifistic, we figure it is better to take your anger out on a video game than life. The Pega Shark Light Gun for Wii is 8.9 x 2.99 x 1.69-inches and weighs a mere 8.57 oz. Its trigger takes the place of the B key, while the functions of the others remain the same. Pega suggests that during a gunfight you use the nunchuck and Shark Gun together. The controller is available for only $10.86, less if you buy in quantity with your buds.

Change Channels With a Bang

Gunslinger RemoteHold it right there, pardner. Now you don’t have actually to shoot the TV when Robert Goulet appears as Elvis apparently did. You can stop bad programming in its tracks with the Gunslinger TV Remote. The gadget’s trigger will change channels, alter the volume, or turn the set on/off. Even better, it does so with an audible boom. The remote comes with a plastic sheriff’s badge which will make you look all the more foolish, but then that is the point, isn’t it? The Gunslinger is available for $27.25, can also work with DVD and CD players, and runs on 2 AAA included batteries.
