Neighbour shoots US expat over noise issues

Did not know that things can go this far and all about noise... could the "American expat" be an EF member?

It was really a close call, the guy was hit in his face more detail and picture here,

Re: Neighbour shoots US expat over noise issues

I would like to just add that thank god no one was really hurt and that the "expat" was able to get the gun out of the neighbours hand!

I think we would be telling a different story if the outcome was different.

Re: Neighbour shoots US expat over noise issues

Bern seems like the absolute perfect place for an English-speaking rapper to move as an expat, I wonder what his expat package is like?

Well, considering the lyrics of much rap music, is this really surprising?

I don't think he'll become a legend with that.

yes, but I doubt that getting shot at by a doddering old man in Switzerland and getting called a bunch of names you don't even understand is worth much street cred in NYC.

You mean not do it properly - with a legal bought assault rifle and 40 round magazine.

So much for Swiss efficiency - they can't even shoot auslanders properly.

Just because you are shagging the sheep - doesn't mean you need to engage in any kissing

Re: Neighbour shoots US expat over noise issues

Lucky escape.

Could this be one of the first examples of adjusting to cultural differences in reverse?

I mean, auslanders are often blamed for not adapting to the cultural differences, could it be the Swiss guy was not getting anywhere with his passive aggressive letters and thought, sod it, I will communicate with this guy based on his cultural understandings?

Alas, he popped a cap in his ass. That's how you guys say it, right?

Hmm, if the annoyed neighbour was a better shot, I don't think this thread would be so jocular would it?

Re: Neighbour shoots US expat over noise issues

That's it, no more toilet-flushing after 10pm for me...

BTW, as the shooting occurred at 22:10, when the usual hausordnung "quiet time" begins, I assume the attacker used a silencer?
