German hurls computer from apartment block
'Who hasn't felt like doing that?' admit police
A German chap who demonstrated his frustration with his PC by throwing it out of the window escaped a fine when police oficers decided they rather sympathised with his actions.
According to the Evening Standard, Hanover cops were alerted in the middle of night by neighbours who reported a "loud crash" outside their apartment block. Officers duly attended the scene, finding the pavement strewn with electronic debris.
The unnamed 51-year-old perp explained he'd "got annoyed" with his machine, which struck a chord with the police officer who admitted: "Who hasn't felt like doing that?"
Accordingly, he was not sanctioned for disturbing the peace, but was made to clear up the mess. The make of computer and offending OS are not noted. ®
