    There should be a law that protects movie theaters, schools, etc from being sued that have cell phone jammers.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Being serious now, this is how I feel. Yes, the cop was unstable. No, the other person shouldn't have been shot. That being said, when you go out of your way to not give a crap about the right of your fellow paying theater goers to enjoy their movie watching experience, you risk inviting dark elements into your life. It's like angrily honking your horn, tailgating and flipping everyone off. No, you don't deserve to die for this, but one day you're going to road rage the wrong guy, and you will have no one but yourself to blame.

    Fun fact: Northern Italy has a very low murder rate. Northern Italians are also giant assholes. Southern Italy has a high murder rate, and Southern Italians are very very polite. I do not consider these to be disconnected facts

    That's interesting. What are middle Italians like?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Actually I don't know. I only know that each respective problem gets more extreme in each direction you go.

    Ok, so I suppose there must be some sort of blend of the two in the middle?

    I'm never going to be able to tell anyone to shoot me a text again without thinking of this incident.

    Just really sad for all concerned. Two families broken as a result of one crazy mans actions.

    I'm wondering if he really is crazy. My suspicion is that what started as an argument over the texting ended up getting hostile and the old guy (a retired police officer) felt he was in some danger. Now whether that was a reasonable belief or not is a question for the jury.

    Not crazy, not anymore than any of the road rage idiots.

    Guys like this endanger all our gun rights, esp. cc. Stupid ****.

    A real man can keep control of himself....and doesnt feel like he is the 'appointed one' who should be 'teaching someone else a lesson.' Uncontrollable ego...16 forever.
