The elderly man accused of shooting a movie theater patron in Florida after an argument over text messaging told police that he fired because he "was in fear of being attacked."
Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a news conference today that the victim, Chad Oulson, 43, was texting his young daughter's babysitter when an argument erupted with Reeves over texting during previews before the movie "Lone Survivor."

Did the shooter really go to the manager, or did he go to the car to get his gun?
Premeditation is important here. However, even an old SWAT officer ought not to have been in “fear of his life” from an attack by popcorn.
Thank God it did, or else a three year old girl might have lost both her parents, let alone threatened the life of the off duty sheriff's deputy that subdued him.
The jackboot lickers, the badge lickers, and the cop worshipers will be along shortly to defend the killer and call you a cop hater.
Regardless of this guy’s guilt or innocence, the media has already convicted him because he carries a pistol. To them, he’s just another Zimmerman. Just another pool of blood that the media and the antis (one and the same) can dance in to advance their agenda.
Anyone heard anything about this Reeves guy? He must’ve lawyered up in a hurry ...
This is the kind of thing that the liberal left is going to point to and say "See! Conceal/Carry laws are dangerous and must be repealed!"
I think he’s more to blame for his elitist attitude for being an ex-cop than he is for the instrument through which he punished someone else for not recognizing his elite status.
NOBODY is asking about the one thing we don’t know. Did the off-duty cop have and use a weapon to subdue the retired cop?
Right. Because no one's ever been killed in a mass homicide in Colorado while attending a movie.
The stupidity coming from both sides of this one has reached new lows.
I'm just wondering when I'm going to need a permit to conceal/carry popcorn. That's what's gonna happen when the liberal left gets done with this one.......
‘In Fear of Being Attacked’
The classic line a cop uses as the free get-out-of-jail card!
He has no doubt gone to the special hell.
No, STUPID old STILL power hungry EX-COPS are dangerous and must be repealed.
Good Lord, My Uncle has to be spinning in His grave.
If this idiot had been on His PD even retired he would have still gotten an earful from My Uncle.
Where it's always commercials and the feature never begins, and the line for the bathroom never progresses ...
If they had a Gunfree zone at the theatre, this goofball still would have been armed because he was a cop and therefore above the law.
If someone saw him armed and called the police, the cops would have told him it was ok, laughed at a inside joke and went about their business.
Prayers up for Mrs. Oulson.
Thowing stuff at a victim is sometimes a technique to distract the victim's attention long enough for you to hit the victim with your fist or a weapon.
That the wife’s hand was shot shielding her husband is not a compelling argument to me. Seems more logical that she was attempting to restrain him.
I'd think that since you and I are aware of that, a 71 year old retired cop would also be aware of that and still used better discretion than he did.
