    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Put away your cell phone at the movies or else

    Now sure it's annoying when someone interrupts a movie at the theater with a phone, but this fucker takes it too far.

    It started with a father sending text messages to his daughter during the previews of a movie.
    It ended with the 43-year-old man shot dead amid the theater seats, and a 71-year-old retired police officer in custody. That man was set to make his first court appearance Tuesday.
    Monday's shooting during a 1:20 p.m. showing of "Lone Survivor" at a Wesley Chapel, Florida, movie theater escalated from an objection to cell phone use, to a series of arguments, to the sudden and deadly shooting, according to police and witnesses.


    As a male moviegoer texted, the man seated behind him objected, and asked the texter to put his phone away.


    They argued several times, according to police and witnesses, and the man who was texting watched as the other man walked out of the theater. Curtis Reeves, a retired police officer, apparently went seeking a theater employee to complain about the texting, police said.


    Two seats away Charles Cummings and his son watched the squabbling.


    When Reeves returned, he was without a manager.


    "He came back very irritated," Cummings said.


    The man who had been texting, Chad Oulson, got up and turned to Reeves to ask him if he had gone to tell on him for his texting. Oulson reportedly said, in effect: I was just sending a message to my young daughter.

    The summary execution of in-theatre phone-junkies should be mandatory in every jurisdiction--unless the movie sucks.

    Yes, people now consider previews/trailers part of the movie. I know a **** ton of people who go to see certain trailers. To me, previews are the safe time to text, talk and walk into the theater late.

    Texting during trailers I can understand but, given the earsplitting volume of trailers, how do talkers manage to even hear what's coming out of their phones?

    While texting may have been the initial reason these two people met, it was the words and popcorn tossing that prompted the (unlawful) shots.

    The old timer should be convicted of murder 2 IMO....

    Hey, old people can get cranky. Prpbably paid $12 out of his fixed income to see a show, and didnt want to miss any of it. Let that be a lesson to the young fellers who may be tempted to dis the older generation -- you may be a badass, but we got guns.

    I agree that shooting was probably too harsh tho, pepper spray or a shock baton would have been more appropriate.

    But seriously, as a former police captain, its not unreasonable that he carry a gun regularly. Depending on the shooting victim's appearance and demeanor, the defendant could make a good argument that he was afraid for his life; the perceived aggression, as well as a significant disparity between the age and/or size of the people involved could justify the use of deadly force, even if no deadly weapon was displayed by the victim.

    Which is why stand your ground laws are such bullshit. If he felt that threatened after starting an argument with someone then he needed to go somewhere else.

    If you are a willing participant in the creation and escalation of the situation then you should not be able to claim self defense.
