    Default Rant: Retired cop shoots texter in movie theater, texter dies

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/13/justic...ing/index.html

    So basically this guy is texting during the previews to check up on his daughter. Retired cop gets angry at him, goes to get manager. Comes back empty handed. The two of them argue and the texter throws popcorn at the cop. The cop shoots at him in retaliation, and the texter later dies. Cop is charged with second degree murder.

    From what I've heard the defense is claiming it's a "self-defense" shooting. Seems they're pulling a Zimmerman here. Only in Florida.

    I hate texters in movie theaters as well, but I don't shoot them.


    BRB, I'm getting a giant saw and going to the panhandle so I can cut Florida off from the rest of the USA and sink that shithole state into the ocean. Place is crazy as hell.

    in the guy's defense, It is estimated between 170-190 people die per year from choking on popcorn, making it one of the top 5 most dangerous snack.
    woof!

    The self defense plea will only work if the texter was black. :V

    It's just the god damned previews. Not like it's during the actual movie.

    Also, self defense? What the christ?

    I don't think the ex-cop is getting off, the self-defense platform is what the defense team is paid to do. I feel sorry for feel sorry for lawyers appointed by the court cause they are forced to play the devils advocate.

    Ex cop, so you have all the interpersonal issues with power and authority that get cops into trouble every day. Now morph this with a senile 71 year old with a license to carry and its easy to see how it happened. The worlds full of crazy people these days, you shouldn't taunt anyone. This is terrible but people also need to be responsible for their own safety to a degree. If you flip someone off on the freeway, you might get shot. It's not right, but its the world in which we live. If you wanna survive, you gotta keep your head on the swivel.

    Are you seriously saying the victim deserved what happened to him?

    I didn't really pick that up from what he said, more or less that they just should've been more careful. Sometimes, you can just never tell with people.

    Sadly thats very true. Used to be where you could fight someone 1v1 and be done with it. Now you so much as yell at someone and they pull a knife or gun on you ready to kill you over 'disrespecting' them. Or if you get in a fist fight someone has to call their cousin, brother, and the rest of their crew to jump you. The world has no honor and is dangerous.

    Senile men with guns is never a good idea. They are twitchy, unreliable, cranky and likely prone to "in my day" fits.
    I professionally deal with idiots causing problems and misbehaving little shits, So If I ignore you, likely you are reminding me of work.

    I'm not surprised. Everyone has a gun nowadays, even your crazy neighbors down the street and you'll never know when they'll snap. That's why I always make sure to carry something on me.

    It's such a shame really. The guy who was shot did nothing illegal and only acted on concern for his daughter- the retired officer caused all the ruckus! It's scary to think that in America, your life can come to a permanent halt if an old fart with a gun gets butthurt over something ridiculous. He had a wife and family!
    I don't want to make any stark comments, but sometimes it really seems like many American Police Officers are only in it for the title and power.
