Mobile Phone Rage Ends In Shooting

from the careful-how-you-use-that-phone dept

Another public service announcement from those of us at Techdirt. Please be careful how you use your mobile phone in public places. A man in NY was apparently pissed off at someone he was talking to on the phone, and began to curse him out. Another man, standing nearby seemed to think the tirade was directed at him, and decided to shoot the man who was on the phone. Just imagine how much worse this gets when everyone has a phone embedded in their teeth. Luckily, the man was only shot in the foot (not, I’m sure, that that’s much consolation to him – he still was shot, after all) and is in stable condition.
