    Man shoots at mouse, hits roommate; another roommate arrested for rape
    By Pat Reavy December 21st, 2011 @ 12:48p

    TAYLORSVILLE — A 34-year-old man has been arrested for investigation of multiple counts of sex abuse against a 13-year-old girl.
    The four-month relationship was discovered after a bizarre incident at the man's house in which one of his housemates was shot by a third housemate who was reportedly trying to shoot a mouse in his kitchen with a 9mm handgun, according to investigators.
    Paul Daniel Kunzler was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of two counts of rape of a child, three counts of sodomy of a child and three counts of sexual abuse of a child.
    The string of events began to unfold about 2 a.m. Tuesday when police were called to a house, 2584 W. Brucemont Dr. (5450 South), on a report of an accidental shooting. Officers arrived to discover that a man who was in the bathroom had accidentally been shot in the chest by his 27-year-old housemate who was shooting at a mouse in the kitchen with a handgun, said Taylorsville Police Sgt. Tracy Wyant.
    The bullet went through a wall and struck the 28-year- old man while he was in the bathroom.

    “After the gun was fired, both the roommate and Paul heard a scream.”
    –Sgt. Tracy Wyant

    The victim was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. He was later upgraded to stable condition. Alcohol was involved in the incident, Wyant said.
    During an ensuing search of the house, officers found a 13-year-old girl hiding in a basement closet, Wyant said. The girl told police she had sneaked out of her house without her father's knowledge to see Kunzler, according to a jail report.
    After further questioning, investigators learned Kunzler and the 13-year-old had been having a relationship for four months. The two had met through a common friend, Wyant said.
    It was not known Wednesday whether any of Kunzler's three housemates were aware of the relationship.

    Ok sounds like it's time to shoot the 34 year old next. I know the guy is just sick we will call it lead treatment. Just a few shots and he will be cured.

    Where was God when this was all happening???

    It's a pity that Kunzler wasn't in the bathroom at the time instead of the other guy who was probably just innocently taking a dump. Where was God when this was all happening??? Oh yes...watching sparrows fall.

    God was likely laughing himself silly - I believe he created Man for the comic relief.......

    Christmass holidays / Laughing Jesus

    I am staying with friends in San Antonio Texas for the Christmass holidays. In the guest bedroom there is a framed print titled "Laughing Jesus" I have been told it is a famous pen and ink print. It came to mind when you mentioned God Laughing as he looks down at some / even most of our actions. I suspect at times he also weeps, and rages vocally at us. just saying ...... http://www.ebay.com/sch/items/laughing%20jesus?_dmd=1&_sop=12

    So you wish to be controlled instead of exercising liberty? If one isn't free to be bad, then one isn't free to be good either. The Father gives us freedom of choice, unlike man.

    Filberts with guns...............

    My comments about God were more about the problem of evil (the contradiction between the deity's presumed qualities of omniscience, omnipotence, omnibeneficence), and the way God supposedly interacts in our world in a personally interventionist way at times than about free will. I'm sorry for derailing the thread about filberts with guns, and their (allegedly) paederast housemates. I should have linked the post to the religion and faith forum and expounded there. Mea culpa.

    I could almost believe in a God with a sense of humour...but I confess I haven't found much evidence for it in the God of the Torah and Old Testament....a lot of smiting and drowning and jealous rage....but he's not the only God with those shortcomings I guess. Of course God could be some bi polar Menghelenian Jekyll and Hyde diety...and we his/her/its/their bio warfare laboratory subjects. It could quite possibly explain a lot.

    I had a look at the picture featured on the linked website....His image looks a lot like a Rastafarian enjoying a cone. : O

    Somehow I don't feel greatly comforted knowing that filberts with guns, and paederasts with carnal proclivities are given the freedom to be beyond merely bad so that I can enjoy the freedom to be shot or sexually assaulted or being good for that matter. If that is my lot in God's plan...I'd rather give it a miss.

    If US jails are anything like Australian jails, rockspiders (aka paederasts) usually don't do terribly well in the general population. They are usually confined for their own protection away from the general prison population. But I agree with your sentiments.

    "Rackspiders"..... BWAHAHAHA!!!!! Gotta remember that one! [beer]

    People who shoot off larger caliber guns in a home should really be more careful.......
    Mine won't penetrate the wallboarding. :D

    You should see what a .22 pellet from a CO2 pistol does to a mouse...... ain't pretty - like a Forty-Mike-Mike hitting a horse......
