Accidental Shooting of Woman who Looked like a Bird - Shooter Gets Probation
via Microdot from Boing Boing
A gentleman in Grand Junction, Colorado was put on probation after shooting a woman in the head. Apparently, he thought the woman was a red bird but really she just had a red mohawk. The woman, who did survive, "may have been passed out from intoxication prior to being shot" and that a bag of suspected meth was found near her, according to UPI. The man, Derrill Rockwell, 49, was ordered to pay $10,000 in restitution and put on five years probation.
Is that a gun-friendly response to what the guy did, or what? Probation for shooting someone by mistake while on the disqualified list?
