Maybe the gun jerk should have shut his f*king mouth or at least when he decided to pick a fight, should have been man enough to take it outside.
The ENTIRE confrontation STARTED over an a--hole disturbing a room full of patrons by violating theater rules with his cell phone. That's why the theater had rules against cell phones. The old man simply stood up for his rights by being a paying customer with an expectation of not being disturbed during a movie by jerks with phones. If you were in a McDonalds eating your Big Mac and a person walked up and pissed on it would that not violate your right to eat in peace? Would you simply keep eating your Big Mac and keep shut about the infringement of your meal that you paid for?

Again I bet "phone jerk" would have kept his big mouth shut if the Old guy had been the manager or an armed uniform cop. but instead it was a 71 year old man so he thought this was going to be an easy person to bully. He was wrong. But I bet he never makes that mistake again. Ha ha ha. I also bet after this YOU will turn YOUR phone off when in a theater. Ha ha ha.

You can't stop someone for killing another human being in a movie theater for tossing popcorn in his face.

At least you admit it was not for texting but for assaulting a 71 year old man.

It doesn't and funny how there's no phone to be had.
I guess it got tossed into the parallel universe.
Putting aside the stupidity of suggesting someone is going to toss a cell phone when he has a bag of popcorn in his hand.
But we always leave plenty of room for you to make those stupid assertions that you can't back up but always demand of others.
Wipe your chin, DongLiqueer.
Watch it and weep, asshat. http://www.tampabay.com/news/courts/bail-hear...

And there is another video out there of a closer shot showing the shiny object bouncing off Reeves and flalling to the floor.

And he didn't have a bag of popcorn n his hand. He picked up Reeves' CUP of popcorn and threw it at him.

Still waiting for you to prove your statement where you claimed Reeves pestered the phone jerk for "20 minutes". Too bad the time stamp on the video say that YOU ARE FULL OF SHIT. But don't let actual video footage get in your way. Carry on with your IGNORANCE, please.

What a shame it is that everyone knows that this SIX FOOT TWO INCH TALL 270 POUND man EX-rent-a-cop is seen and heard provoking the fight.
And of course when his wife insisted he didn't have to shoot this Navy vet, he told her to SHUT THE F* up.
So we do know what kind of "man" he is: the kind you look up to, SpoogeSponge.
And I am sure a dipshit like yourself would consider someone telling you to turn off your phone or to take your texting outside......WHICH IS THEATER POLICY......as trying to "provoke a fight".

Did Reeves stand up and get into the phone jerks face? Nope.
Did reeves assault the phone jerk in any way? Nope again.

Who was the first person to assault anyone, dipshit???

not sure why we need trials, courts and juries.. we have armed veterantard to analyze internet video, asses the situation based on his ignorance of what happened and come to a judgement... we could save a whole lot time and money and just employ a team of re'tards and mo-rons to solve all criminal cases....
Nah....we have enough mo-rons such as yourself and Barefoot who try to distort the facts of the case already. How about just sticking to the facts for once? I know it will be hard for you and your ilk, but give it a try.

NO, it did not have a rule against cell phones, it had a rule against carrying guns into the theater.

NO cell phone.

Or you would have linked to that.

I will pray tonight that your grandchild is sitting two rows in front of the next guy who is using a cell phone and one of your gun gnutters friends who decided he could ignore the no gun sign pulls out his piece and fires into the dark.

Like Reeves did here.

There is twenty minutes of your fat polished turd rocking back and forth and agitating and crying and acting like a five year old who dropped his lolly.

Reeves' statements made in a recorded interview in the hours after the shooting: "It was crazy. It really was, it was completely uncalled for."

You are not familiar with SYG laws, obviously, where people can use deadly force to defend themselves from serious injury only if they believe their life is in danger.

Not if they are really angry because someone called them a fKing ahole.

20 minutes.

Maybe you can get your stopwatch out and prove it was 18 minutes.

Going to be hard to get around your polished turd firing a .38 in a movie theater though.

Reeves: "Throw popcorn in my face!"

Gosh... no mention of cell phone...

Going to love his statements to his wife...: "You shut your f**king mouth and don't say another word."

To his wife.

He is YOUR kind of guy, DongLiqueer.

A panel of experts has recently determined that this poor hillbilly's complete inability to attract any attention from either sex has driven them to the rather bizarre behavior of impersonating human creatures. They are doing this in the hope of attracting either reverend ted haggard or a priest with a tub of vaseline. What ever you do .. DO NOT BEND OVER IN FRONT OF THEM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Yet more mindless repetitive droll from the resident Topix spambot. How pathetic.
