Police arrested Reynolds in the movie theater lobby.

"(Reynold's behavior) will not be tolerated in Bryan. It is an offensive gesture. It alarmed people and we took the appropriate actions," said Kelley McKethan, a Bryan police department spokesperson.
I love my kids, and it saddens me greatly that they will never know a US that had freedom of speech, freedom of travel, due process and no zero tolerance policies.

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

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


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.

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.

/but then I'd have to update my resume

Jument: 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!

Um... for your analogy to work he would have had to walk into the theatre with a real gun and make pew pew pew noises. He only had fingers (unlike the real plane you apparently are not quite crashing into NYC).

OhioKnight: The only thing that can stop a bad guy making gun gestures with his fingers and going "choo, choo, choo"

Is a good guy making gun gestures with his fingers and going "choo, choo, choo"!

No one needs 10 fingers. Chop them off unless you get a permit.

A closer equivalent would be extending your arms and making plane noises as you run around the front of the building.

/which would probably still get your ass kicked and/or arrested

Of course, had he been carrying a real gun, he'd just be exercising his God-granted second amendment rights and be given a free large popcorn.

PsyLord: BTW, the only person that you should be afraid of making a gun hand gesture and pew-pew-pew noises is this guy:

RoyBatty: It is an offensive gesture.

So, it has come to this.


Been seeing it for years as the underlying reason to get angry with people,  and now it's an open excuse to arrest and charge people.

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

Hopefuly it gets to court and the smash it thoroughly.

So, while attending a movie with extreme graphic violence, including a woman getting her hand cut off and bodies raining down hundreds of feet after being blown to hell with machine guns, someone making gun fingers gets arrested.

But hey, movies and music have no effect on violence, just people making gun fingers.

A man was arrested at a Texas movie theater recently for making a gun gesture with his hand.

Congratulations, Texas: You are now a pussy state, just like all the others. Way to go.

And just remember: everything's bigger in Texas. You farking pussies.

Can you imagine if he had made finger puppets on the screen?   They'd have had to call SWAT.
