He had it coming, no jury will convict him.

Totally win/win.

Someone who feels it's ok to text during a movie is dead and a gun will be taken away from an unstable gun owner.

Win/win.

Followup tag in line for popcorn and Junior Mints?

Texting, talking, shouting, and general bad behavior is why I don't go to see horror movies in the theater any more, or why I don't see comic book movies on opening weekend.

But he was texting his 3-year-old. In other news 3-year-olds can read and spell.

OMG. Im dying! LOL!

I hate assholes in the movie theater, but I don't see how texting during the previews is a capital offense.

/Dick-head (ex)cop shoots someone because they didn't respect his (perceived) authority. Surprise, Surprise.

The local police department is going out of their way to distance themselves from the shooter.  I'm betting he got pushed out to pasture due to conduct issues.

Was his name Pete?

He was texting his 3 year old, DURING THE PREVIEWS! But don't blame the gun because I'm sure the 71 year old who shot him would've been starting shiat without it

Shotgun Justice: I hate assholes in the movie theater, but I don't see how texting during the previews is a capital offense.


Many people are unaware that previews are available on the internet.  These people are more likely to be over 70 years old.

There's a rash of these things going on at that theater.  This is the second one in two days...

Ker_Thwap: He had it coming, no jury will convict him.


Why? Did all three of the following occur?

1. Victim is black.
2. Shooter is not black
3. Shooting occurred in Florida

But technically you could be killed by a popcorn container therefore reasons and furthermore freedom.

And own cell phones.

So did Mr. Responsible Gun Owner leave to get a manager or did he leave to get his gun?

Just because someone is a self-entitled douche does not mean you can shoot them, as much as you'd like to.  Who texts a 3 year old?  Call her before you get in, asshat.  It's a smartPHONE.  I suspect this advice will fall upon death ears.

/Yes, it's a judgement call.

monoski: How is texting noisy?


When a person receives a text, the receiving device will often make an audible indication of the arriving message, but I think you know that and forgot about that aspect.

What the article didn't mention is that the screen on the device was probably also a distraction.

A perfect illustration of why an armed society is a polite society.

If I were on the Jury, I think I would give the shooter a pass. I went to a movie a while back and someone brought in a baby stroller so I was thinking "here we go with the baby crying crap".

But it wasn't a baby in the stroller. It was a bucket of fried chicken. Which the couple ate during the movie with their cell phone light on so they could see what they were eating.

And people think people don't go to theaters because of ticket prices. I say raise them and get rid of as much of the bottom feeders you can.
 
2014-01-14 10:04:44 AM  
so... just another isolated incident of an unhinged individual shooting someone.  I'm just curious at what point this becomes a trend worth taking seriously.
 
2014-01-14 10:05:05 AM  
See, THIS is the internet tough guy thread I was expecting last night.

3 yeard old loses father, ITS OKAY BECAUSE I HATE CELL PHONE IN MOVIE THEATERS.

/also, gun control
//also, Florida

monoski: How is texting noisy?


Because whenever they receive a text, a very shiatty rendition of 'What's Up People' plays at full volume.

/actually, I don't know what the fark it is that's playing
//it's just so poorly done that it sounds like 'What's Up People'
///i blame AOL, they started this whole mess with "You've got mail."

Reason #25,000,001 we should spend all the money on the Mexican border fence on a fence south of I-10. Florida is becoming a libertarian paradise.

bonobo73: A perfect illustration of why an armed society is a polite society.


Living in fear of breaking the unwritten and unknowable rules of every unstable person who may be carrying a firearm in the vicinity doesn't sound like "freedom" to me.
