Media Quiet About San Antonio Theater Shooting
 
On Sunday December 17, 2012, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his X-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming. It’s like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant!

Now aren’t you wondering why this isn’t a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting?

There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened.

Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week. Just thought you’d like to know.

Agenda revealed! If you had any doubts that the media was pushing for this and who their masters were, doubt no longer. This is spooky. Alot of what you read in the ‘conspiracy world’ is bull but there IS alot of truth too.. You just have to sort out the facts yourself. -Mort

Posted this on Facebook this morning. All my "likes" were from women. Don't mess with armed women!

But it got my point across in the Colorado theater shooting thread, someone with a CCW would've ended the shooting or scared the wimp away.

But but...a few innocent bystanders would've been shot by the CCW holder instead of 20 by the assailant!- Dumbasses

More details:

A recent breakup set off a shooting spree that ended with a man wounded at a South Side movie theater before the suspect was shot by an off-duty deputy, authorities said Monday. Jesus Manuel Garcia, 19, an employee at a China Garden restaurant next to the Santikos Mayan Palace 14 theater, apparently became upset Sunday night after his girlfriend broke up with him.
He lashed out by sending her a message saying he planned to go to the restaurant and “shoot somebody,” said Bexar County sheriff's Sgt. Raymond Pollard.

Pollard said the woman called to warn restaurant employees, but by the time she saw his message, Garcia was already outside the China Garden firing a Glock 23 at the front door about 9:25 p.m. Garcia went inside, chased people out the back door, and followed one employee as he ran toward the theater, apparently because he was the easiest target, Pollard said.

“He was chasing him, shooting in the air and at other cars,” Pollard said. He said that when a San Antonio police officer heard the gunshots and pulled into the theater's parking lot, Garcia shot out his patrol car's windshield.
Garcia then pursued the employee into the theater, firing more shots when he reached the lobby, Pollard said.

One of the shots struck a patron in the back, but the bullet did not strike any vital organs and the man was released from San Antonio Military Medical Center later Sunday night.

Bexar County sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Castellano, who was working off-duty as a security guard at the Mayan Palace, chased the gunman toward the back of the theater. The 13-year department veteran cornered him after he ran into a men's restroom, shooting him several times and taking his gun, Pollard said. Armando Olguin, an off-duty San Antonio Independent School District police officer, restrained him using the sergeant's handcuffs, Pollard said. Garcia was rushed to SAMMC, where he was in stable condition in the intensive care unit Monday.

Bexar County officials said Castellano was told not to talk to media about the shooting because the investigation is ongoing. SAISD spokeswoman Leslie Price praised Olguin, a four-year department veteran, calling him an “excellent officer.”

“It sounds like he did all the right things,” Price said.

The shooting immediately sparked fears of a mass slaying like the one in July that killed 12 people and injured 58 at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo.
Tara Grace, who was buying a drink from the concession stand when the shooting began, ran into the bathroom and locked herself in a stall with five other patrons to avoid the mayhem.

“We thought we were going to die,” she said.

Cassandra Castillo waited anxiously outside the theater Sunday night for her son, a projectionist at the theater.

“It brings back memories of the other theater shooting, and the elementary school shooting,” she said, referring to Friday's Newtown, Conn., shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead. “You only think the worst.”

A restaurant employee who asked not to be identified said such an attack was out of character for Garcia, known as “Chuy” to coworkers. “He's a good kid and not violent. He's quiet and minds his own business,” the coworker said. “I have nothing bad to say about him.”

The restaurant's owner declined Monday to talk about the shooting or provide his name, but he did say he planned to reopen the business once the front door is replaced and crews can fix the bullet holes in the walls and windows.

A Santikos spokesman did not return a message seeking comment.

Garcia was charged with attempted capital murder of a police officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to arrest records. His bail was set at a combined $1 million.

What it cant be! Good guy with a gun stopped what could have been a massacre. Nobody cares or hears about it though

She was a trained police officer with plenty of warning, a disorganized and non-methodical assailant, and backup. That all makes this case very different from Aurora.

The reason this isn't getting a lot of attention from gun control activists, or from a gun control standpoint, is that I don't think there's anyone who's saying that Sgt. Castellano shouldn't have had a gun. She's a cop; of course she should have one.

I'll be interested to find out how Garcia got one, since he's only 19. Oh wait; it's Texas - never mind.

I've gone through a state trooper academy, hunters safety, and two handgun training classes. There's others on here who have been in the military, yet we're not law enforcement. You don't think that qualifies us to carry?

It doesn't fit his agenda, you are wasting your time~

19 year olds shouldn't have guns. Is that what you are saying ?

That was my point in asking that question

I figured so :)

I heard of it. From what I've read recently, whenever there is a major shooting making national news, what follows are other copy-cat shootings.
Blame the major media. Then ban them.:D

Well, there's a difference between firearms safety training, and crisis management training. It sounds like, assuming the academy teaches crisis management, that you have those covered, but I would wager that most people who have a concealed carry permit have not been through the state police academy.

As for the military, you tell me. Did basic training include any instruction in civilian crisis intervention? Did you have any training or preparation having to do with panicking crowds, maintaining communication, minimizing damage, security procedures, and so on? Or was it basically the first half of Full Metal Jacket?

She's a police woman. She has received that training, especially after 14 or however many years she's been on the force. She could (and, I'll bet, did) just yell out "Police!" and she and the other cop formed a team and took him down.

I'm just saying Texas has a much more enthusiastic gun culture than, say, Connecticut, where 20-year-old Lanza wasn't old enough to legally own a handgun.
