Man Murders his Lawn Mower

July 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Here is one we can all understand, for me personally I would choose my laptop for target practise.  A 56-year-old Milwaukee man is accused of shooting his lawn mower to deah because it wouldn’t start for him.

Keith Walendowski was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.  According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn’t start Wednesday morning. He was quoted as telling police: “I can do that, it’s my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want.”

A woman who lives at Walendowski’s house reported the incident. She says he was intoxicated.  Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.  The funny thing is that when police showed up they checked the gas tank of the mower and it was empty, so he didn’t have to kill it, just fill it.

    Six years and three months plus $11,000? What would he have gotten if he had killed his car?
    The sentence does not fit the crime.
    Thanks for the laugh.
