    I think he got the 20 years for the shooting and zero years for the attempted domain theft :)

    I think he is not happy with his wife so he tried to do something to stay away from her.
    A secure place with free rent/food and no one is nagging every day.

    This dude is a different level of stupid...

    He failed at valuating the domain, figured it was worth breaking and entering for. He then broke into the house with a gun and a stun gun and still failed to scare the domain owner enough for him to transfer the domain, he then shot the guy and shot him again with a stun gun and failed to do enough damage to immobilize the domain owner, he failed to maintain control of the gun and managed to get shot with his own gun by the person he was trying to rob who had already been shot once with the gun and also with a stun gun. LMAO..

    How does this dude even manage to figure out how to tie his shoelaces.

    BWHAHAHAHAH....I hope the dude isn't a NP member... :ROFL:

    This is just beyond retarded...
    All the reason why they should block any address / name info and just leave a contact email available in the whois! It's rare that this happens, but one person shot is one too many.

    Don't understand why this hasn't been implemented yet (not advocating draconian GDPR stuff). Rarely do you ever see a person's personal info paraded just like that except in the domain world.

    "DO IT" for state is going to have new meaning in prison, "State" being the nickname of the big tatted guy waiting in the corner.

    What is this world coming to? 20 years of freedom is worth doitforstate.com? Guess you got to be careful these days people are going to just mug you for your wallet they will now go after your domains as well.

    Get on the ground. Give me all your money jewelry and domain names now! Wecome to the 21st century

    So I can understand some people wanting privacy. Anybody with visible assets is like a sitting duck waiting to be mugged, sued, hacked or taxed.

    20 years in prison for a shitty trend domain name that will mean nothing next year. What a waste.

    People will do anything for a domain name exposure! The shooting worked! Do you think they flipped a coin for who gets to go "inside" and play wife to a large black man?

    Chances are it wont be renewed for 20 years so will be available for hand reg when he gets out. If he got away with it he would have dropped it on expiry.
