iaazathot: kinkkerbelle: You can tell from his mugshot that he is unwell.  They should have taken him to a doctor, not to jail.

This...


In Texas they go to doctor right after the execution.  That's their chance to have a mental evaluation.  Not surprisingly they typically pass...most likely due to the brevity of their responses to questions.

you just see a guy going 'choo choo choo'

Maybe he just wanted everyone in the theater to be his Valentine?

Awesome!  Thank you very much, I needed a chuckle tonight.


And here I was starting to think no one had gotten the reference.

Wow, great call, haven't thought about that movie in forever.  Movie had some great parts, but sucked the rest of the time, averages out to good I suppose.

Texas I believe actually isnt anywhere near the top in % of pop who own a firearm...

Wow I didn't expect Indiana to come up ahead. You're right Texas is 30th src

There's also percent ownership, guns per capita, raw numbers owned. . . all tell a different story.

I've lived in my share of states and overall, "meh, it's a gun" goes to pennsylvania, which surprised the hell out of me.


I'm from TX and I agree w you. They're even more relaxed than we are. Shocked me to sh*t.

Mock26: I hate crap like this.  On the one hand this should be protected by the 1st Amendment and at worst the guy should have been asked by the theater to leave and possible get sued to cover the cost of the tickets for those who fled.  On the other hand, the guy is a serious asshole and deserves a serious beat down for has asshattery.  Part of me kind of wishes that some good samaritan had in the dim light mistaken his finger for a real gun and put bullet into him.

Just because you can exercise your 1st Amendment Right does not always mean that you should.  This was clearly one of those times.


Well...you seem reasonable.

So...you support his 1A right...but you wish he had been shot.

Well, part of me does.  And just a shoulder wound.  Or a shot to the kneecap.  Nothing too serious.  He is, after all, a dumb ass.

"It was dark and nobody could really tell especially if you were in the back and you just see a guy going 'choo choo choo,'" said Caroline Morales, one of the people in the theater Friday night. "The rumor quickly spread that it was a gun and everyone is rushing to the exit quickly. We couldn't have got out if we wanted to."

"Choo choo choo"? "CHOO CHOO CHOO"? What the hell kind of gun makes the sound "choo choo choo"? I've shot rifles, shotguns and handguns and I've never heard one that makes a sound that even remotely resembles the onomatopoeia "choo choo choo". WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? ARE YOU ALL INSANE?

It's possible to recognize that he's both exercising his 1st Amendment rights and that he's using poor judgement in doing so. I'm always a fan of consequences for poor judgement. So how about a small caliber shot to the leg rather than a large caliber shot to the torso as a nice compromise?

Oh I have a hand gesture for this kind of fascist crap. It hasn`t been this bad in *most* of the fascist police states in the past.

Hand gestures in the cinema gets you arrested?

Yes, as we all know it`s "Pew, pew, pew"

The guy would have been shot dead by a SWAT team if he were saying "pew, pew, pew"!

OgreMagi: People get offended over anything and everything.  Point a finger, eat a pastry, draw a picture.  It doesn't matter what you do.  Someone will get offended or scared and you must be punished.

Today I made a joke about British food.  My boss heard, and chastised me for it.  I expect to get hauled before HR tomorrow and written up.  Why?  Because I was "making jokes about someone's nationality".  That's his exact words.  No I wasn't.  I was joking about British food.  I was doing a comparison of this American phenomenon of deep frying everything under the sun and comparing it some of the horrible choices in British cuisine.

I should wear army fatigues to work tomorrow.

Is fingerbanging really that unusual in american theaters?
 
2013-07-10 08:20:39 AM
Gun hand gestures are a gateway gesture, they lead to gun shaped pop tarts, gun shaped paper cutouts, and god save us all, Assault high capacity magazine clip things that are dangerous to someone.

I'll bet CIA wiretapping and a TSA cavity search are the reason they got this violent offender off the streets.
Thank you bug guvmint for saving us all.

denbroc: meanmutton: notyomama: Although it is sad that this is what we have come to, his actions were the equivalent of yelling Fire! in a crowded theater, which is a crime.  He caused a needless panic.  He should have known better - the dumbass.

No, it's not.  It's not even remotely similar.  There is no way in the world he could have possibly expected that going "pew pew pew" with his fingerbangers would cause a panic.

How about if he had been saying "Aurora" at the same time?


Poor taste? Yes! Arrest-able not really unless he shouted "I have a gun!" But that didn't stop these cops.

Money says the prosecutor doesn't bring charges.

Just watched that movie last night on the recommendation of some Farkers in a recent thread. Pretty good. I liked "Red" better, though. Up next: the "A-Team" movie.


Even though it didn't do as well as expected, I loved the "A-Team" movie.  It captured most of the essence of the TV show.

Bravo Two: bunner: Keep hiding under your beds!  Fear terr'ists!  Fear authority!  Make no sudden or easily misconstrued gestures!  Turn off your  mobile phones in the presence of police!  Submit to all demands of those who know best!  Get on your knees and suck our dicks and do as you're told or so help me Sally Sue Greasef*ck you will shiat your own guts out in a Cuban prison!



Are we through, yet?

Are we through pretending that the Fourth Reich isn't being installed here?  Are we done harrumphing and flag waving and pretending we're not on the ass end of a very old business plan?  Is it freedom yet?

You. I like you.

Ok, a couple of things from the article that would have worried me. First, this is a grown-farking man playing guns by himself in a movie theater. It probably wouldn't have made me panic, maybe a little nervous, but definitely annoyed. Someone should have just asked him to stop, and that would have hopefully been the end of it.

Coming from the management point of view, he was driving customers away, that should also call for his removal. They would probably be ok with losing one weirdo customer as opposed to many less-annoying customers.

Also, just last year, we had a terrifying shooting inside of a theater, even though I think no one should be arrested for making a gun with their hand, this guy shows a great lack of sensitivity. Show some respect, and realize that even pretending to shoot an imaginary gun in a theater is pretty offensive right now. This guy should have definitely been kicked out of the theater for being annoying and creepy, but not arrested.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

So, I'm going to walk through downtown Boston in broad daylight going "Tick...tick...tick..." which I assume is now a capital offense.  I'll get free room and board for a couple years, then it's "So long, suckers!"

weltallica: Who would've guessed that pretending to shoot up a movie theater would end badly?

COMING UP NEXT: pretending to fly a single-engine plane into the new "Freedom" Tower over New York... but PULLING AWAY in the last few seconds.  I bet it'll be a LAFF!


Better yet: At your next marathon/charity run, yell KA-BOOM!

Watch as hilarity ensues.
