I personally believe that he was eavesdropping. And I also believe he is just as guilty of disturbing the peace, unless she was using these colorful metaphor's on him or somebody. And futhermore I wonder how he decided that she actually said the word at the time he thought he heard it. And with the many colorful lyrics and movies of today how did he decide that someone was actually saying this word. I think he made a bad call, because I have actually heard worse language in a movie theater. Walmart's is a privatly owned business, and so is a theater. There is a fine line between freedom of speech, censorship, as well as religion. Atheist don't believe in God and therefore can't be held to a christian standard. The supremes ruled that profanity that is not targeted at a specific person is freedom of speech in a 5-4 ruling. I personally do not regard these colorful metaphors as words, but as gutteral outbursts. The problem with recognizing a word as a curse word is that you have to know what it means. And if the legal eagles keep going they will be arresting you for just thinking these words. I feel sorry for everyone involved in this incident, and including the city of LaMarque Texas.
