Ficoce: They were both wrong. When a gun is pointed at your chest it's a good idea to back down. I mean, giving your life for your beliefs is commendable, but in 20 years the kid will only know her father from the pictures and the shooter will be dead. Dad could have walked away or at least had the sensibility to be shot in the back to show he was trying, at least. Then again, he could of just turned his phone off and texted the 3 year old after nap time.


"Cummings said the man in the back row - later identified as Reeves - got up and left the auditorium, presumably to get a manager. But he came back after a few minutes, without a manager and appearing upset. Moments later, the argument between the two men resumed, and the man in the front row stood up. "

So the douche left to get the manager, manager probably said that it's the previews and he won't do anything about it.  Douche comes back and starts up the fight again, then pulls his gun to and shot the guy because somebody threw popcorn at him.  Death penalty is in order, no life in prison since that wouldn't be long enough.

Went to see "Frozen" with wife and 12 y/o daughter after Christmas. Woman came in with like a dozen kids about 6 y/o after movie started and couldn't figure out why we were pissed at her for shining her flashlight app in our faces trying to get her litter(s) settled.

Mad_Radhu: This past weekend I ran into the weirdest complaint at a theater. The Hobbit just finished up, and during the credits I stood up and was waiting for my wife to gather up her bag and jacket, because I really needed to stretch out my legs after sitting for three and a half hours. Suddenly, the lady behind me was berating me for being rude and blocking her view of the credits, like it was a terrible thing to stand up after a long movie during a credits sequence that has no extra scenes or any other Easter eggs. I didn't really hear her when she first started complaining, but my wife was about ready to hop over the seats and get into it with her.

The whole thing just seemed weird? Since when was it rude to stand up after a movie if there is nothing in the credits that you can't read on IMDB? It just was so weird it broke my brain a bit to the point where I would have said something if I wasn't totally having a "If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college" type moment.


Her grandson was 2nd unit assistant doughnut delivery team and she was trying to see his name in lights, you insensitive ass......

Well, could mad have taken a step or two to the right or left? I mean, if Iron Man and all other Avengers movies have taught us we better stick around for that last bit of trailer for the new movie or easter egg.

I am not saying that the lady couldn;t handle it better. It IS reasonable to want to make sure you don;t miss anything meant to be seen.

Ficoce: I noticed his wife didn't step in front of him to protect, but had her hand on his chest - more likely to hold him back. If she was holding him back, maybe he was the aggressive one. He didn't die from texting, arrogance killed him.


Or maybe she was trying to pull him out of the way of the gun.  It's amazing the streching you are doing to protect a crazy person with a gun.  He shot a guy for no reason other than because he could.
 
2014-01-14 12:30:22 PM
To all the people saying "good"...this happened before the movie even started.

Also, a perfect example of why concealed carry is a stupid idea. No, this would not have happened had a gun not been involved. The gun nut would not have stabbed the man to death with a Twizzler.

WTFDYW: Dimensio: RevBigfoot: Prank Monkey: jaytkay: You gun nuts really need to calm down and stop this nonsense.

And if gun nuts you mean gang banger idiots I agree. We don't know anything about the guy who did this yet but I would bet you a whole $1 he was not carrying that gun legally.

Get your wallet out, the shooter was a retired cop. Sorry to shoot a hole in your gang banger theory...

Just another piece of evidence showing that the carrying of firearms should be restricted to law enforcement, active and retired.

He was retired LE

Techhell: IRQ12: dascott: At first I was like "well, finally" but then I was like "wait, during the PREVIEWS?"  Florida, sigh.

The movie has started when the previews are showing.  Some people are interested in them and they run after the showtime starts.

While what happened in the article is pure insanity it could have been avoided with the slightest amount of common courtesy for those around you.  Especially if you continue you text after someone has expressed it bothers them.

Ehh... if the retired cop had brought out a baton and smashed the phone, I'd agree with you. If he had smashed his hand, I'd still agree with you. If the retired cop had brought back pepper spray or mace or a taser, I'd say that he's getting close to crossing the line.

But when it comes to pulling a gun on someone over texting in a movie theatre, that's three degrees of magnitude above Pure Insanity. It's at a point where you have to be insane to give any sort of justification for it, even in a joking way.

Texting in a theatre is aggravating at worst. In no way, shape or form does it deserve any sort of deadly violence, and even non-deadly violence is an overreaction.



The douchebag was not shot because he was texting. He was shot because he assaulted the former officer, and caused him to fear for his safety. The officer was just standing his ground. Should be an easy acquittal.

Are you for realsies?  I, along with most people I'm assuming, would also be upset if someone shined a flashlight in my face after the movie started.  Take your CHILDREN to a DISNEY MOVIE after it has started if you wish and I'll ignore the noise, let you pass in front of me and even move over to accomodate your entire brood of kids.  The flashlight to the face is a bit too far.

As far as we know, it was only popcorn. It's not like the dead guy decided to ground-and-pound the old ex-cop, and was in the process of smashing his head into something hard, like a sidewalk.

Now THAT would be self-defense.

I got a case of the lulz reading Jim's comment but didn't take him seriously.  Judging from your comment, though, he was serious and at least one other person agrees with him.

So, we've got a disturbing number of people who are OK with the dude getting shot for texting during the previews.  On the other end of the spectrum, some of you are OK with someone showing up late for a movie and using a flashlight.  I'd like to get these two groups together for a movie screening.

Jeez, it's kinda hard to enjoy a movie while people with a flashlight are milling around. A movie is supposed to be an immersive experience, and something like this completely ruins that experience.

And, in fact, I no longer go to theaters for just this reason. There are just too many inconsiderate douchebags out there.
- people who just have to periodilcally check their super-bright cell phone
- people who kick the back of my seat
- people who talk to each other
- kids in the back who think it's funny to throw popcorn at someone they know who just happens to be sitting near you
- people who bring their noisy toddlers and even babies to the movie with them. Seriously, wtf? I can't believe this is even allowed.
- and, of course, the bag rustlers and open mouth chewers... on and on it goes...

I am saying that if you think it is easy getting 3 "Frozen" age kids (much less 6) ANYWHERE on time, then you're incorrect. Now I can certainly hear the idea of "why take the 6 kids if you can;t handle them?" argument. It's legit. I just know that every time people complain about folks who have phones on EVER in the theatre come off as that middle aged busy body who is constantly looking out her window just LOOKING for something to be annoyed with in their neighborhood. "THE GRASS IS TO HIGH! YOU BLIND ME WITH YOUR CELL PHONE LIGHT EVILDOER! HAVEATCHU!"

I am not saying it couldn;t be annoying. I am saying that people give WAAAAAAY to much of a shiat nowadays.

You sound like you hate people. Which, actually, I can totally relate to. Sounds to me like your best bet is to invest in an awesome home theatre setup and watch the movies in piece. Or at the very least, go to the theatre on a day showing 6 weeks into it's run.

Let me guess it took them maybe 20sec to get seated.... OMG THE OUTRAGE!!  Even if it took 1 minute to get seated then that movie is 108 minutes so it's less than 1% of the movie.  Deal with it.

Why are you staring at people instead of the screen.
Pick a better theater and this won't happen
OMG how can you cope they have the nerve to ::gasp:: talk I bet it wasn't more than a few sec.
Kids are stupid go during the school day
We are talking about a kids movie...... guess what toddlers will be there and sometimes they don't want to watch but I'll be damned if I didn't pay $30+ to walk out
OMG you are complaing about people eating food?

You're right you should never go to a theater maybe not even go out in public.
 
2014-01-14 03:38:47 PM
The shooter left, then came back.  There is an assumption that he went to complain to management, but as far as I can tell, it's just an assumption.  It's also possible that he went out to his car and got his gun.

I'm also curious is he was legally carrying.  Did he have a concealed weapons permit, or did he just figure "I'm an ex-cop, I can do what I want."?

Yeah, it's all about you, right? You're the one that decided to take a chance that your toddler or baby might start fussing, and if they do, everyone else who paid $30+ can just suffer.

Not if they chew with their mouth shut and keep the bag rustling to a minimum.

They were both wrong. When a gun is pointed at your chest it's a good idea to back down. I mean, giving your life for your beliefs is commendable, but in 20 years the kid will only know her father from the pictures and the shooter will be dead. Dad could have walked away or at least had the sensibility to be shot in the back to show he was trying, at least. Then again, he could of just turned his phone off and texted the 3 year old after nap time.


Once the gun was pulled it was too late.

The trivia stuff is the worst. Especially the 'quizzes'. Either hopelessly obscure or obvious to an 8-year-old.

The one I hate now is the ad before the ad that shows you all the top notch talent that was brought together and all the hard work that went into the shiatty ad you are about to watch. Microsoft is the WORST about this, with the Surface and Xbox One ads as two from recent memory. I don't care about the credentials of your choreographer, all kinds of cool people dancing around doesn't make me want to buy your tablet, you need a more personal story about what the actual device does like what Google does with their short, simple, and sweet Nexus ad about the kid trying to get home because of a family emergency or something like that.

Confabulat: IPKnightly: He was shot because he assaulted the former officer, and caused him to fear for his safety

Popcorn is an assault? hehe


Thank god the texter didn't have any Raisinets, or else the old man would have had to call in a SWAT team!

LordBeavis: TNel: Jim from Saint Paul: I am sure it was actually IN THE FACE. Like the lady WAVED IT IN FRONT OF HER shouting BEGONE FOUL DEMON FROM THY SEATS!

LOL yeah I bet she was using it to see and maybe it tilted in his direction and his panties got all binded up.  Jesus people if you care so much about your movie going experience that much maybe you should just wait till it's on blu-ray.

I got a case of the lulz reading Jim's comment but didn't take him seriously.  Judging from your comment, though, he was serious and at least one other person agrees with him.

So, we've got a disturbing number of people who are OK with the dude getting shot for texting during the previews.  On the other end of the spectrum, some of you are OK with someone showing up late for a movie and using a flashlight.  I'd like to get these two groups together for a movie screening.


and make them all watch Signs.
