Well, if the weapons were only directed at the screen it could have substantially improved the quality of the presentation.

Stand down.

It was only a matter of time before someone had enough of those films and went batshiat insane.

It was a screening at a Wal-Mart too. I don't know what these police were thinking.

See?
 
2012-11-16 07:39:23 PM  
Oops, I guess the Wal-Mart part was just a follow-up shooting. The story I read earlier said otherwise. Still, this man could have been a true hero.

"A Bolivar police officer approached Lammers at a Sonic restaurant and coaxed him to the stationhouse without incident."

This is article is starting out well - now to read on...

This dude needs help. Glad they got to him early.

"was charged with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action."

But he didn't actually do any of these, right?
 
2012-11-16 07:41:20 PM  
Dumbass kid wanted to make a name for himself, thought of a perfect copycat.

Glad his mom intervened.
I mean, Twitards are Twitards, but they don't get in my way and I don't get in theirs.


...well, expect at ComicCon, but they're all gonna be gone come next year...now I gotta wait out the Hunger Games kids

"It's wrong to do mass shootings during a piece of shiat movie like Twilight.....but I understand."?

That's why he bought two tickets, I'm assuming.
 
2012-11-16 07:43:23 PM  
So if you confess your desire to shoot people to the cops you are making a terroristic threat? That seems... unfair. Confessing is now a crime?

E-Shaman out.

P.S. I make NO excuses for my mind. You consider your mind first, yo. Word.

I'm going to see Skyfall tomorrow. Can I rent this guy out so he can shoot the first person in the theatre to start talking or use their cell phone?

Indubitably: E-Shaman out.

Their taste is so bad it's murderous
 
2012-11-16 07:48:17 PM  
I don't quite get the fail tag. Yes, it's applicable to the intended shooter, but there are also heros in the story. Mom made what might have been the toughest decision of her life. How hard would it be to even let it enter your mind that your own child could do such a thing much less pick-up a phone and call authorities with your suspicion. And the police averted a mass homicide. They deserve praise for a job well done.

Finally, I hope the intended shooter ends up in a psychiatric hospital. That would be far more fitting than prison. Sadly, he might need to be housed there for the rest of his life.

Someone Please tell me that Wesley Snipes just got out of prison!!!
 
2012-11-16 07:49:17 PM  
I just remembered that I used to work with a guy that is now the prosecutor of Polk County. Our nickname for him was Spanky. I guess he's Prosecutor Spank now.
CSB?

Mercy killings?

Some days I feel cut off working from home and playing golf a lot. I don't get enough exercise, I wish I could meet more cute girls my age, I think I spend too much money on a particular hobby.

Other days, I'm damn glad that I talk to clients on the phone and can spent a few hours on a golf course never interacting with another human.

It would have been the largest case of active euthanasia in recorded history

Is that what the kids are calling it nowadays?

They have to do something. Would you prefer people like this go to the cops and they say "Oh, okay. Off you go then, have a nice day!"

A moving quantity?

An ephemeral quality?

Check it.

she was concerned that he purchased weapons similar to the ones used in a mass murder at a Batman screening in Colorado in July

I appreciate the mother calling the cops, I really do. But really? Really?
 
2012-11-16 07:57:47 PM  
i've been saying this but no one listened. any man who plans to attend a screening of Twilight should be arrested immediately.

No. But this is where you introduce them to mental health services - not lock them in a cage for years, sitting there useless and getting even more bitter on the public's dime.

I'm going to repost my review of the movie from the redlit thread because I think people will be educated and the haters will finally shut up.

This guy is just a hater. I saw Breaking Dawn at an advance screening and it was the best movie I have ever seen, and I've seen all of the Twilight movies. I get so mad when critics write lots of big words to get their Haterade across. First off, the acting was good. Secondly, the writing was better. Thirdly, the sparkles were realistic. That's a review. I liked the movie, and that's what counts. Stop trying to be a hater all the time.

I feel like the ALCU defending neo-Nazis here, but it's a good thing the police stopped him.  He could have shot innocent people like the projectionist or usher.
 
2012-11-16 08:00:19 PM  
The statement also said that Lammers "got to thinking about it," and decided that he could shoot also innocent people at the local Walmart he would be able to break the glass cases and grab more ammo, according to authorities.


Why is that word in that sentence? 

Not to mention that it's a couple of sentences jammed together into one shiatty sentence.

What an elegantly structured sentence. How professional.

They may still do that. But first the cops have to arrest them. It's one of those pesky things that has to happen these days, since involuntary commitment laws are so tight. If you think someone is a threat to others, then the cops can get them mental health care--but not without arresting them. By law, they cannot just let them go if they feel the threat is valid.

Cops are good mental-health evaluators, no?

Please.

Please seek community corrections, i.e. accountability at home. Thank you.

Innocent? Hell, those guys are like the Nazis in charge of the cattle cars. 'Just following orders' doesn't cut it, man.
