Florida Man Shoots Couple For Texting During Movie

Pasco County: “The victim was on his cell phone, he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation between the suspect and the victim,” Sheriff Chris Nocco explained.

A witness recalled hearing the victim say he was texting his 3-year-old daughter before the man behind him pulled out a pistol and shot the texting man, and his wife.

“Their voices start going up, there seems to be a confrontation, somebody throws popcorn, then bang, he was shot,” the witness — a former Marine — said. “He staggered two seats over, fell on my son and I.”

  1. I wish more of those self centered asshats would be shot.

  3. Based only on the limited information available I would say the guy deserved it. Give the shooter a $50 fine and time served.

  5. Some additional and more recent details from the linked news report: The film had not even started when the victim was texting and was subsequently shot. The shooter is a retired police officer, so one would have hoped, should have known better. The victim is dead, his widow has non life threatening injuries and his 3 year old daughter will grow up without her father. I guess the retired police officer can look forward to the rest of his life in prison.

  7. Eh, it happens. With the way so many people feel the “need” to use their cell phones in public places, expect more of this to happen. C’mon, people are taking photos of their dinner in a restaurant and immediately posting it online. How idiotic is that? Sheesh.

    Personally, I would’ve taken the guy’s cell phone, put it on vibrate, and shoved it up his ass. Then I would’ve called it over and over. Sorry to read the guy died, but it is what it is. If people would be less selfish, stuff like this won’t happen.

  9. Only in Flordia… You know I fully support gun ownership but I’ve never been a fan of concealed carry. Because although most of them are responsible people there’s always that one guy with the propensity for thoughtless acts that lead to tragedy. All the comments above seem to support the wonton murder of people texting but there’s better ways to resolve that issue.

    Now some kid gets to grow up without his father because some people just have no self control.

  11. I feel the same, shoot the SOB’S that make going to the movie horrible.

  15. Thank god for Netflix.

  17. Bean, you’re right with this: “Now some kid gets to grow up without his father because some people just have no self control.” If the father had shown self control and some consideration in the theater by not texting, he wouldn’t be dead. If he really HAD to text that bad, he should’ve left the theater and went out into the hallway. Consideration!!

  19. I think what all you poeple are missing is that THE MOVIE HADN’T STARTED YET. What the hell is so important about the previews, which often go on for 15 minutes, that you would shoot someone over it?

  20. Cybr on January 15th, 2014
  21. I can’t believe so many of you support the shooter. Texting is at best a minor social annoyance. Even if the guy is rude he does not deserve death.

    Things like this are exactly why we need gun control. People can not be trusted with them. EVERY gun owner I have met is hoping and wishing for a Die Hard incident to come. Deep down they want to be a action hero so they look very hard for an excuse. Just like when you buy a Corvette, why did you pay for it? To speed you want to speed. The same thing applies with guns, you buy it because you want to use it.

  22. EB on January 15th, 2014
  23. @ EB, I really think you’re wrong about that. There are millions of concealed carry permit holders in this country and events such as those in this post are extremely rare. This shooter was a hothead and should not have had a gun -but the rest of us should not be punished with having our weapons taken away just because some idiot lacks self control.
    And people who want to speed can do so in any car- I don’t see vets going any faster than anyone else on the road. They buy them as chick bait.

  24. snake on January 15th, 2014
  25. EB: Vote for gun control. The criminals will thank you for it.

  26. BB on January 16th, 2014
  27. EB, a few people misuse the right to bear arms, and you want to take that right away from everyone. The next time someone misuses a liberty you like, should we punish that person, or should we take that liberty away from everyone?

  29. Who the hell texts their 3 year old kid? Kids that age most likely cannot read.

  30. KTEX on January 17th, 2014
  31. He wasn’t texting his 3 yr old, he was texting the sitter.

  32. Ruby on January 19th, 2014
  33. We need idiot control.

  34. Bud on January 19th, 2014
  35. I don’t need a gun if I want to kill. There are more painful methods of inflicting death for the anti-gun freaks. Simple let me get in a car, and run you over while drunk. Knife is the weapon of choice in China for killing school children because they can’t own guns. Imagine the horror on those children’s faces as some nut stabs them multiple times. Would I kill? Oh hell no!

  36. Bud on January 19th, 2014
  37. I find it so disturbing that people find it is okay to kill someone because they were texting during the previews. I love previews but come on…its a fucking preview. No one deserves to loose their life because of that or popcorn. I would almost bet all these people who say that texting is punishable by death is either a)doing it themselves but maybe in a different situation b) someone who technolgically-phobic c) just ridiculous.

  39. I hate going to a movie and having some asshole talk or otherwise use his phone. Shooting is a little extreme. Pepper spray or mace would have been better. The 3 year old will not grow up without a “daddy”. I’m sure her mom will remarry in a year or two. I hope that she marrys a man who is NOT such a douche bag.

  40. British Lad on January 21st, 2014
  41. I hope that ex-cop goes to prison and is fucked in the ass daily. It is always those in law enforcement who think they can do whatever they want. Next you will hear about a cop/ex-cop shooting someone for using the out door instead of the entrance.

  42. Red Raider on January 23rd, 2014
  43. Spencer, people who don’t know the difference between “loose” and “lose” should be shot because their stupidity is hurting society.

  44. BB on January 27th, 2014
  45. “The Victim” was everyone in the theater who had to deal with this douche bag texting during the movie.
    and who the fuck gives a 3 year old a phone to text?

  46. Doc on January 29th, 2014
  47. Chad Oleson died at the hands if a cocky old cop. Those of you who say he deserved to be shot deserve the same treatment. The C op could have chosen a different seat or even leave the theater. A 3 year old girl will not have a dad to walk her down the isle, a wife is a widow at a young age, a sister will not have a brother to laugh with….over a cop who thinks he is 10 foot tall and bullet proof. I hope he dies in prison.

  48. Shelly on March 13th, 2014
  49. Shelly: Maybe this story will make you think twice before YOU get your cellphone out and piss off everyone around you and get your mouthy ass shot.

  50. Doc on March 21st, 2014
  51. If he didn’t want to be shot he should have chosen a different seat or left the theater…a lot more people paid to watch the movie…no one paid to listen to this asshole talk to his kid.

  52. Doc on March 21st, 2014
  53. yeah those inconsiderate bastards tweeting their dinner plates deserve to be shot in the back :/
