Some people take those no-texting announcements a little too seriously.

Cop Shoots Man For Texting During Movie

The situation was not that deep. He didn’t have to kill him.

According to NY Daily News:

A heated argument over texting during a showing of [the] Mark Wahlberg movie “Lone Survivor” at a Florida movie theater erupted into gunfire on Monday, killing a man and wounding his wife, authorities said.

Retired Tampa police officer Curtis Reeves, 71, was arrested and charged with second-degree homicide in the attack at the The Grove 16 theater complex in Wesley Chapel, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department.

Police said Nicole and Chad Oulson were seated in front of Reeves and his wife when Chad Oulson made the fatal mistake of pulling out his cell phone during the previews to send text messages.

When Oulson refused to put his phone away, despite several requests from Reeves, Reeves pulled out a handgun and shot Chad Oulson in the chest, according to police.

Oulson’s wife, who was holding her hand on his chest when the single shot was fired, was also injured by the single bullet.

The two victims were transported to a Tampa area hospital, where the man was pronounced dead.

“It’s absolutely crazy that it would rise to something like this over someone texting,” Sheriff Chris Nocco told the Tampa Bay Times.

People holler gun control, but what we need is people control. There are too many people popping off with guns for the wrong reasons and innocent people get killed.
