Do You Feel Lucky, Punk? Retired Cop Shoots Texter In Movie Theater
An argument between a retired police captain and a couple who was texting inside of a Florida movie theater erupted into gunfire today that left one man dead and a woman wounded. [...] Police said that Reeves asked Chad and Nichole Oulson several times to stop [texting], and then Reeves left the theater. When Reeves returned, Chad Oulson asked Reeves if he reported his phone use to the theater managers, police said. That prompted an argument which ended when Reeves pulled out a gun and shot Oulson in the chest, police said. "The victim was on his cellphone, he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation," Sheriff Chris Nocco said [...]

That being said, some people do enjoy watching the previews as a part of the movie experience. Texting may be relatively noise free, but it is visually distracting. You are in a dark theater, you really can't help but to notice the small, bright screen bouncing around in front of you.
I also find it very unlikely he was texting a 3 year old. That sounds like something the media came up with to gain more sympathy for the texting couple.
People who text in theaters, while driving, or at store counters are rude. That doesn't mean they deserve to be attacked. But I think most people who respect others in public can identify with the frustration felt by this retiree trying to enjoy an evening out.

What's the woman going to say? How is she going to explain this?
Yeah, but have a chuckle about it. What a 'dark' sense of humor you have. Fucking douchebag.
As for your buddy, I hope that senile piece of shit dies in prison, but he won't. Special rules for cops.
