Texting in the theater in Florida? I don't think so...

http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/story/2...-movie-theater

WESLEY CHAPEL (FOX 13) -

A moviegoer lost his life inside a Pasco County theater Monday afternoon after a dispute over texting with a retired police officer.

According to the sheriff's office, the dispute happened before the 1:20 showing of 'Lone Survivor' had even gotten underway at the Cobb CineBistro at Grove 16 complex on Wesley Grove Blvd.

Investigators say two couples had gotten into an argument over noise.

"The victim was on his cell phone; he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation between the suspect and the victim," Sheriff Chris Nocco explained.

A witness recalled seeing the agitated man -- later identified by deputies as Curtis Reeves -- get up and leave in an apparent attempt to find a manager. When he came back alone, the argument escalated.

Charles Cummings told FOX 13 he heard the victim say he was texting his 3-year-old daughter before Reeves pulled out a pistol.

"Their voices start going up, there seems to be a confrontation, somebody throws popcorn, then bang, he was shot," said Cummings, who was there to celebrate his birthday. "I heard the victim say, 'I can't believe...,' then he fell on us."

"I asked if the guy was OK, and he started gurgling blood and then fell," recalled Cummings' son, who said he ran to call 911.

Both the man, identified by deputies as Chad Oulson, and his wife Nicole were struck by the single shot. Oulson, 43, was hit in the chest and died, while Nicole was hit in the hand when she put her hand up in front of her husband. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

An off-duty Sumter County deputy inside the theater was able to grab the gun and detain Reeves until deputies arrived, the sheriff added.

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."

Nocco said his detectives considered if this could be a 'stand your ground' case but decided the criteria did not apply.

"It's absolutely crazy it would rise to this level over somebody just texting in a movie theater," he offered.

"I can't believe people would bring a gun to a movie," added Cummings, a Marine who served in Vietnam. "I can't believe they would argue and fight and shoot one another over popcorn or even a cell phone."

Even during the previews I'd be hard pressed to be annoyed by someone.

This old man had to have been hopped up on Low T medicine and roids.
Maybe the old man was trying to answer the trivia question but could not concentrate due to the texting...

Considering this guy is going to go to jail for the rest of his life I’m not sure where you’re getting this “atmosphere” from.

If you're a lib in Florida you have to cry about stand your ground even when it's clearly not a duty-to-retreat situation, it's a requirement.

Texting is what started the confrontation. I assume it went something like this:
"Hey buddy, you mind not using your phone during the movie."
"Yeah, in a moment bub." Guy doesn't look back and continues to text.
"Hey, I asked you nicely not to use your phone. You're in a theater."
"Buzz off pops."
"Excuse me?"
"You'd hear me if you'd pull your dick out of your ear."

Old man runs off to get the theater manager. Which was the appropriate thing to do. He then returns and the guy is still texting...

"I'm not going to ask you again, stop texting during the show."
Guy stands up enraged, "The movie hasn't start yet ****top. Mind your own damn business or I'll hop over this seat and kick your ass..."

Or something like that.

The bottom line is that we have two grown men who both failed to use common sense and be courteous with each other. Had the guy just put his phone away or at the very least, show some iota of courtesy to the old man, then none of this would have happened. It's simply tragedy that could and should have been avoided.

Lastly, who the **** texts a 3 year-old? What 3 year-old has a phone, the language capacity, and know-how to text?

Everyone is different. My mom turned 70 last month and she is in pretty good health. If you didn't know, you'd think she is around 60.

Does it matter? I don't care if he is surfing porn during the previews he has every right to use his device until the movie starts. We don't know what happened in the exchange, but unless the texting father put him in danger that was unavoidable there is no defense. If shooting someone because they are an asshole becomes justifiable...Welcome to Thunderdome.
