Woman goes on blow gun spree in Stevens Point

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) -- A 41-year-old woman is in jail after police say she went on a blow gun spree in downtown Stevens Point.

The Stevens Point Journal reports that police got a report at 9 p.m. Wednesday from a 25-year-old woman who said she was walking downtown when she felt something hit her chest. In the next half hour, three more people made similar reports. None were seriously injured.

One of the victims reported she saw the dart shot from a pipe sticking out the window of a black minivan. Police pulled the vehicle over at 9:30 p.m. and found a blow gun, a slingshot and a bucket of rocks inside.

Police arrested the van's driver, Paula Wolf, and say she eventually admitted to shooting the pedestrians. She allegedly told an officer that she "liked to hear people say ouch."

Wolf has been charged with recklessly endangering safety. She could not be reached for comment.

    ". . . a blow gun, a slingshot and a bucket of rocks. . ." Gives a whole new meaning to "dumb as a bucket of rocks".

    While I agree that someone who does something like this is in need of some re-education, I must point out that it could have been so much worse. Arguably, anybody who enjoys violent films (war movies, save-the-world-from-impending-apocalypse films, etc.), are, similarly, 'low-lifes', simply because they enjoy the thrill of watching others get shot at, beat up, blown up, and so on. Otherwise, why would they be watching it? Sure, you can say it's the plot, or you like 'action', or this actor/actress, etc, but you can't really deny the pleasure one gets from those spikes of adrenalin. Is that not enjoyment? Is that not a baser response? Consider our society - not just America's, but the world's, overall - and in doing so, do you really have to ask where 'these people' come from?

    She'll say ouch herself pretty soon when the judge throws the book at her. Where do these low lifes come from? They seem to be breeding like rats.

    Thank God all those people are unharmed! What sick people lurk out there? How can people really get a kick out of hurting others?
