A New Zealand man who was shot while breaking into a woman’s Goochland County home had met her 14-year-old daughter online and suddenly arrived uninvited after methodically planning his trip to the U.S., Goochland’s sheriff said Monday.The creep looks, well, he looks just like what you'd think. Sort of a New Zealand Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man.
The man, Troy George Skinner, 25, was found with duct tape, pepper spray and a camouflage folding clip knife with a 2.75-inch blade, Sheriff James Agnew said during a news briefing at the sheriff’s office. The duct tape and the blade had been purchased from a Walmart on Friday, the day of the attack.
Skinner then reappeared on the back deck and again tried to get inside by throwing a landscaping brick through a glass door. The mother warned Skinner several times that she had a gun. After he broke the glass, reached inside and attempted to unlatch the door, she fired twice. One round struck him in the neck, the sheriff said.[pauses to let the cheers die down]
I'd like to point out that there was not one, but two 911 calls about this, and the cops only showed up after he had been ventilated. That's why you need a gun.
The girl played online games with him, but picked on the creepy vide and blocked him. He flew from New Zealand to Washington DC and then took a bus to her town. If your kids play online games (and really, whose kids don't), point this out to them.
The only downside to this is that the family gun was a .22 and therefore the Commonwealth of Virginia (or you and me - Federal charges have been filed) will have to pay to throw this pathetic jerk in prison. A 1911 might have avoided that expense to the taxpayers.
