    Initiating the conflict and then shooting someone in a theatre showing complete disregard for everyones safety, security and comfort sounds pretty crazy to me.

    Well the article stated it.

    Why,if it had started, would that have made the shooting 'legit?'

    Ah yes. The first sentence of the story.

    So then this wasn't a guy texting to the annoyance of his neighbors during the movie. The ex-police officer just decided to be a **** stirrer because he had a gun.

    yes, but not that annoying that it warrants murder or even verbal violence.

    Police officers initiating conflict with peaceable citizens while disregarding everyone's safety, security and comfort?

    It does indeed sound crazy...to hear that someone isn't already expecting such behavior from our criminal Justice system.

    Damn multiple lives ruined over texting before the movie even started. That is pretty freaking sad.
