He's lucky the shotgun blast didn't hit him in the chest and kill him.

This is the third story today about shady characters in Wisconsin. One of the other ones involved a man executing pets in front of his children in a town ten miles away from where this one took place!!

I don't get it. Theoretically, the ski mask is there to obscure your identity, so they can't pin the crime on you later.

Why paint your face unless you actually intend to take off the ski mask, which would destroy the point of the ski mask to begin with.

Then again I don't think we're looking at a rationale person here.

Was the sidekick (accomplice) dressed as the riddler? Who would volunteer to help this guy by being the getaway driver?

Good job for shooting someone who is attacking you! Do some people think you should not be able to protect yourself?

I wonder if Mr. Vetterkind believed this is the perfect way to woo his ex back. I think I can see the flaw in his plan; committing a host of violent felonies might not be the best approach when trying to tell that special someone that "I've changed, I've grown since you left and I love you."

I have to commend Mr. Benzschawel for his restraint. I can't say I would've had quite the same aim.
