    I guess someone didn't listen to the good Reverend's warning.

    This is why you remove the chip off your shoulder and adapt.

    You never know if the other guy is a raging loon.

    And don't text, talk, or use phones in a movie theater! If you want to do that crap stay home.

    No, I'm not justifying shooting someone over this type of behavior but maybe the silver lining is that people will think about being inconsiderate pricks a little more.

    I love the NO TEXTING messages at a theater.

    To teens, and most idiots, it can't be done.

    That is like asking a raging heroin or meth addict to not partake for two hours hahahaha.

    The Twittering Twits simply cannot comply. They must be looking down at their phones texting constantly or they will die of an anxiety attack.

    it is very annoying to see bright screen or phone noise pops up during the movie, but not enough to kill someone over for.

    Hmmm


    Reeves, a 71-year-old retired Tampa police officer, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. A 2005 Tampa Bay Times article also described him as a former director of security for Busch Gardens.

    Moments after he was named as the suspect, Tampa police issued a statement saying Reeves had retired back in 1993 as a captain.


    "He was instrumental in establishing the department's first Tactical Response Team," the statement explained. "We are not aware of any contact with the department since his departure more than 20 years ago."

    I wish the employees with the light sabers would make more rounds and throw people out for texting and talking to the screen...

    well, life style have been changed.

    nowadays it's hard to see people talking or carry conversation. instead, all they do is stare at their phone screen.

    I'm with Eugene there, you have to wonder at the theater's response to the soon-to-be- shooter when he went out looking for "the manager". Looks like it wasn't much.
    "Hey there's no manager but would you like some Twinkies?"

    I needed a texting phone for communicating due to my hearing impairment and it works great for me, but then again I am a responsible adult and I turn it off when asked to do so.
    Now, as for the inconsiderate spawns of satin who are so mesmerized by that tiny screen, they are the problems that technology created!!!

    I sure do miss the old days when things were quite simple, you respected your elders, you did what you were told (within reason that you would not be caught red handed) and you were expected home before the street lights came on (before dark if you lived in the sticks like me)....

    The 71 year-old shooter was from the old days, even older than ours, and it didn't help. Probably more influenced by PTSD or a fragile ego from not being a big deal anymore like he used to was.

    Is that a reference to the material their parents' bed sheets are made of? ;)
