Theater management should have brought the police in to toss out the “youts” immediately after they started to become unruly. But they were probably afraid of lawsuits and charges of racism.

The couple was kicked and punched in the parking lot before a gun-brandishing witness an armed citizen told the crowd to step back just before deputies arrived.

Edited to remove anti gun bias. Brandishing? Puh-leeeze!

It’s not unusual to see County Sheriffs and local police out in force on weekends in working class/poor areas of Central Florida, including paddy wagons, mobile command stations and SWAT uniformed officers touting beanbag semi auto shotguns in the concessions lines. (Seriously, I stood behind a fat cop in a full SWAT uniform waiting in line to buy popcorn on duty, was completely surreal evening in Osceola County, Florida)

Coming from NJ/NY where the only time this level of police presence is is seen is during terrorism watches or large political protests, I was stunned seeing dudes walking around with 30 sets of ziptie handcuffs on their belts the first time I went to a Saturday evening movie.

Then come Monday morning, it returns to a sleepy shopping center patronized by retirees and housewives.

We have the opposite exp.

Usually only us and maybe couple other people in the theater.

Wheelchairs are free admission.

The only thing that ever happened to us was the last film quit working 30 minutes into the movie and so we now have free passes for 2 movies.

Going to go see Little Fockers and True Grit.

Read the whole thread. That's a very stupid comment you just made.

The man with the gun was escorting the Marine's wife away from the confrontation, but some of the young thugs followed them and assaulted the wife, one punch knocked her out. At that time, judging from the narrative in the news report posted further down in thread, the man brandished his gun, and in such a case it was wholly proper to do in self-defense.

We’re of the same opinion about the unacceptability of the behavior,

however, I think everyone should refrain from using terms like “primates” and gorilla references. That indicates that certain people groups are “less evolved” than others. It’s not a matter of evolution or DNA, it’s a matter of culture.

These are humans that have had their culture corrupted by liberalism since the 1950’s,
and there haven’t been enough consequences for continuing to promulgate this culture.

It appears to me that there are a number of people these days who are under the illusion that they are the only *real* beings that exist and the rest of us are just some sort of holograms that are here as props to make there experience more lifelike. At least that's what they act like. I rarely use this word when describing others, but I believe they can only be described as self absorbed idiots, FReepers or not.

“Seven males then surrounded Federico Freire and began to kick and punch him.

“I got back up to defend myself and they started running everywhere,....”

****************************

I imagine if the yutes hadn’t run off he would have taken care of them, and rightfully so (seeing as he had been on the ground, 7 guys kicking him, in fear for his life, etc.)

I can just see these punks running off after the 7 of them are beating him down and kicking him on the ground .... and he gets back up! Oops.

This is nothing more than GITBUCK.

For the uninitiated, GITBUCK is the systemic and deliberate chaotic breakdown of social norms and behavior primarily exercised by minorities. It is a derivative of the "by any means necessary" mantra of the pepetuators of "social justice". Their attitude is that is is okay to break laws to illustrate the bigger point. Today, these young punks take the concept to whole new levels - gang beatings, bum rush attacks, violent intimidation, etc.

Whites are targets. Believe it. Ask the relatives of those two college kids from Knoxville. Visit the security or suspension offices of most large metro public schools; talk to the little darlings...or their unaccountable parents.

Look around you; you see it everywhere. Theatres. Malls. Businesses. Country Fairs. Public schools. Why do you think there is an absolute BOOM in homeschooling and private schools? Back in my day in the early to mid 70's, the public schools were still okay to keep the riff raff thug element under some modicum of control. Today, there is NONE. No corporal punishment, right? The students run the asylums, and the teachers are underpaid and intimidated as well. The principals just want to meet the state standards and push 'em through like a playdough factory.

So the middle class has to spend money they otherwise would be saving or investing in their children's primary and secondary education. Who in their rightmind would RISK having their daughter attned school with Desiree's volitale kid? No rational parent would risk that.

GITBUCK is also known as "wilding" or one of the many variations of "crunk" (ex. - crunkalicious, crunkfest, etc.)

Now, the question is...is my explanation racist OR reality? I was born and raised in Memphis; worked and lived here all throughout my adult life in this town. It is a bad as I have ever seen it. I AM BEING REAL.

Brandishing in a crowd of unruly strangers is irresponsible. The Marine's obligation is to his family. He should have made a hasty exit and called the cops.

The police take a long time to respond. That's why I carry a cop rather than a gun. In order to conceal carry a cop I wear very loose clothing.

Wow! I managed to post a comment that is nearly as stupid as yours!

You’re not being “racist” unless you attribute this behavior to genetic makeup.

Since we’re all condemning the culture of these minorities,

feel free to call us “culturists”. We’ll proudly defend the concept that some cultures are worthy of condemnation while others are worthy of lauding.

I’m sure it depends on where you go and an empty theater is pretty likely not to house rude people (would it be rude of me to say duh?). Are you seriously going to pay money to see Little Fockers?

Yes, a corrupted culture in action. America’s ‘victims’ replying to their ‘oppressors’. Brought to us by Democrats, who promise to get blacks to ‘the mountaintop’ but keep them dependently stuck stuck in the foothills.

This was a dangerous, violent and damaging assault by a mob, done because some of them were asked to be quiet in a theater, refused, and were properly evicted.

We all know that this is going to get worse until it explodes somewhere, especially if this incident goes without real punishment.

I cannot understand why people will pay good cash money to go to a movie then act like total @$$es and prevent others from enjoying it.

Unless it is something extra special, I will wait the six months or so for the DVD to come out. The last first run movie I attended was Amazing Grace maybe four years ago.

If we disagree, then it’s a disagreement based on assumptions of evolution vs creation.

Do you really want to posit that blacks are less evolved (closer to animals) than whites and this is why they act as they do?

We seem to agree that the behaviors and culture are worthy of condemnation, we just disagree as to the causes of those behaviors and the origin of the culture.

He tried. Destiny prevented him from escaping.

Fate put a patriot with a gun there, thank God.

The attack happened as the couple left the theater near Bradenton Saturday night. Authorities say the fight attracted about 300 bystanders.

If the movie theater tosses out 300 patrons who go there to watch the fights, their boxoffice receipts are going to really down in the coming months.

We saw it during the Rodney King riots too.

Pulling people out of vehicles and attacking them with bricks. A hispanic man was beaten, and on camera had his pants pulled down and his genitals spray painted black.

When social order breaks down, "do as thou will" becomes the law of the land and it is a very Satanic philosophy.

This area is about 25 miles north of my locale. Not an area I frequent.

When I do, I go armed, for reasons that this story doesn't mention, but makes quite apparent.

This area is not far from where another serviceman was killed a year or so ago; can't recall the exact details.

“The victims of this attack were lucky an armed bystander came forward to assist them. “

BINGO.

What do you expect from the kinid of people who would go see a Babs Streisand movie.

I think the Marine and his date should sue Ms. Babs for starring in a movie which induced violence in American “youths” resulting in personal injury.

If I were an attorney I’d LOVE to take a case like that, but then I’m just a zealous conservative idealist.

We did go see Amazing Grace at the theater because for some reason my husband was of work and there was no one else in the theater. And we saw the 2 3D films at the IMax last year because, well you have to. But for other things no way. I can wait. If someone else wants to, that’s fine with me, heck, it keeps the economy perking, but I’m just not willing to pay ticket prices to get irritated by the way so many people act. Plus, of course, it’s annoying to pay money for most of what passes for movies now anyway. If I watch them on TV and they are stupid junk, all I wasted was my time.

As I pointed out, the names of the minors who hit the cops in the arm were charged with felonies (and their names were released) while the thugs who punched a woman in the face knocking her out were charged with misdomeanor assault.

Weak charges perpetuate such crimes. They aren’t being adequately punished because they aren’t even being adequately charged. They will probably cop a plea bargain on the misdomeanor charge. May not even stay on their records.
