This is very sad.

What a shame, someone shouldnt have to die for something so stupid.

And in a movie theater nonetheless.

Bad news, I hope the victim has found peace.

Just sickening. That story reads like a wet-dream for the gun grabbers.

Don't read the comments! The anti's are already at it.

Anyway, There is no way to explain these things other than pure evil in this world.

That's vary sad to hear. This is probably the scenario the movie theater in Aurura, CO was think of when they banned guns in the their complex.

So many things could have adverted this:
1. there were only 26 people in the theater, CHANGE seats!

2. if it really was getting loud and out of control, and there seems to be a fair amount of time, the off-duty sheriff's dep. that was in the theater should have stepped in and suggested #1. ( yes I know things can happen in a matter of seconds), I'm just saying

3. when the shooter went to complain, the theater should have sent an usher back with him to address the situation... and suggest #1 or ask the vic to step out to finish his text for the courtesy of the other viewers.

Of course none of this takes into account what was actually said back and forth. Still, a shame.

It shows the power that some LEOs feel they have and when they are not obeyed when they feel they should be then they don't like it. Mind you I said some and not all. Still this is much more excessive than one would ever expect. I wonder if the retired cop has cancer or something and he figured he's got nothing to loose by showing that guy who's in charge.

To quickly let something so silly get under his skin makes me question his LEO experience. Tough skin is part of the job.

When I first saw this being reported today, I just couldn't believe it.

This theater did ban guns. It's another fake "gun free zone."

My prayers go out to the vic family in a time like this. Nothing personal to the law enforcement community but some law enforcment and some elected officals (WILL ALWAYS BE RIGHT) and law abiding citizens will always be in the wrong when it comes to anything firearm related. Just look at some of the recent and past related shooting news articles. Should we have more tougher selection process when it comes to someone wanting to be a law enforcement officer, not everybody has the mental and physical capacity for that type of career.
