Sad to read about - a new dimension to 'piton hammers at 10 paces...'

From the link provided.
Police said the two friends found Farrar lying on the trail next to a wooden beam, bleeding from the head.
&
The victim had injuries to the head and hands that police said were consistent with blows struck with the silver-coloured claw hammer that was found on the ground nearby.


... A claw hammer is not usually a piton hammer, and I reckon crazyjohn or his mate grug would say that an Arapiles tent peg hammer is possibly a different thing again.

As it stands I wouldn't call this unfortunate event a US Overreaction.... If the perpetrator beat the guy with a hammer and then shot him with a few different caliber assault weapons and the courts then banned silver claw hammers; then I'd label this a classic US style overreaction.
