Fla. theater suspect had commendable police career

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida sheriff says a retired Tampa police officer's praiseworthy career doesn't offset the severity of the charge that he shot and killed another man after an argument at a movie theater over texting.

Iondaprize, you are also talking about MANY of our VETERANS who fought and killed others by the COMMAND OF OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. They come home 'messed up' THRU NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. THEIR only CHOICE WAS FOLLOW ORDERS OR GET ARRESTED. NOW THE GOVERNMENT DICTATES TO THEM THEY CAN'T BEAR ARMS HERE AT HOME???? WHO THE H3LL IS THE GOVERNMENT TO HAVE THEIR NOSE IN THE DOCTOR PATIENT'S PERSONAL MEDICAL FILES? ESPECIALLY AFTER THEY SEND THESE TROOPS OUT TO DO THEIR BIDDING? HITLER'S GOONS used these same tactics to strip a Nation of their arms. So did China, N.Korea, etc.. And besides, even the most educated and professional doctors out here CANNOT tell if some stupid idiot is going to lose their temper and do 'IRRATIONAL' terrible things, as this guy did.. There is no reasoning or excuse for what he did. But the way the crooks in Washington has plunged this Country to the point of 'BLEAKNESS', today more than ever, EVERYONE is capable of losing their temper over dumb shite. It erks me that butt faced OBama is LAUGHING his ass off at us while we are 'turning on each other'...It was his plan all along, he will continue to have the media PLAY UP events like this idiot's just to SAY ALL GUN CARRIERS ARE CRAZY and should not have the right to carry. And what you heard is right, no one has the right to lay a hand on another person, and especially not shoot them over something as trivial as a text msg. BUT these stories get more attention then the fact that there is SERIOUS corruption and lies going on in OUR Congress and White House. And the reason is to convince YOU all people who are 'mental' should not have a weapon. There is NO GOD in Washington who is going to stomp on MY Constitutional Rights and tell me I'm 'too sick' to protect myself or my family. So what plan????????

lingt, this happened during the previews. When asked to quit texting, perhaps Mr. Oulson tried to tell Mr. Reeves that he would be done in a moment. You don't know. You don't know how rude Mr. Reeves may have been. Yeah, a lot of neanderthals are commenting that this will teach folks to not be rude. I can't help but think it's a lot ruder to shoot someone you feel isn't obeying your command quickly enough.

Native Jax, should those idiots in Congress come up with some sort of safeguard to make sure mentally ill people can not legally carry weapons? What about the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness for those they kill? I once heard that your right to swing your fist ends at my nose.

It is so frustrating to go into a theater and have phone scenes bright as daylight and clicking and vibrating going on continuously. They should ban the use inside theaters. When you ask these you people to PLEASE refrain they act like you are the crazy one for asking. I hate to say what a lot of people are thinking..... When ask to quit texting why didn't this young man go out and conduct his business even if it was with the daycare. In this case, would have saved a life.

This is also another reason why IDIOTS in OUR Congress should leave our Right to Bear Arms alone. This man PROVES anyone can be a threat to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness. ANYONE can lose there temper and kill someone. Nations have murdered their own citizens by the MILLIONS after taking away their right to bear arms. There is not a 'gun' problem in this Country, but there are 'mental' people who have no control over their tempers.

His attorney Escobar in an idiot. Really, we are expected to believe that an former police officer with millitary experience was assaulted with "popcorn" feared for his life and found no other way to defend himself, except to pull a gun and shoot the man in the chest. Wow! What an outstanding member of the community! Another example of guns don't kill people, People Kill People. He should get the death sentance!
