It begs confrontation. You just can't let asinine nonsense like that slide.

We all agree. A jury will decide. In the meantime, though, spare everyone the indignity of grotesquely distorted characterizations of inarguable fact.
Isn't that what you are also saying about Reeves? You are upset that he felt the need for confrontation, rather than letting it slide. Yet here you are stating that you think someone else's opinon begs confrontation and you cannot let it slide. Do you see the conflict there? Just saying.

20 years as a LEO, then years as head of security at Busch Gardens without incident and suddenly he is a mad man? Come on, be realistic.

The man has a slew of friends who have known him for years and never knew or had any problems with him.

The event comes along and everybody and his brother is lined up to state how much of a nutcase, bad guy, etc. Reeves is though they had no idea the man existed the day before the shooting.

How can anyone of you justify that thinking? You're all just following what the media told you.
Glad you now find it so amusing.

BTW your post comparing this to the attack on Pearl Harbor was both misguided, and more importantly disrespectful to all those who served during WW2.

Exactly, a perfect example is the 59yr old man who "snapped" and shot and seriously wounded the CEO of the company he was being let go from, he than turned the gun on himself.

Everyone who knew him is shocked.

Reeves regardless of what else he has done, will be known as the movie theater shooter.

So in addition to devastating himself and his wife financially, he will only be remembered for this by most people.

I don't see Busch Gardens offering to pay his huge lawyer bills, or the PBA doing a fundraiser for him.

What I find amusing is the ridiculous commentary that you and others post.

I know YOU NEVER answer direct questions, but I'll humor myself.

HOW WAS I DISRESPECTFUL TO WW II VETERANS?

The point of that statement, which obviously went over your head was in reference to self defense.
You wouldnt disagree with the USA taking action against Japan for that or do you?

I guess you are a psychiatric specialist to be able to compare some guy who committed suicide with Reeves? How stupid can you be? Again, I will never see a reply, bur how do you connect a guy who got fired against a old man who was under physical attack?

You continue to worry about Reeves' finances. You have no idea how much money has been donated to various defense fund accounts for him.

You're running out of material and are digging deep to find something to post on the matter.

These idiots dont see that it was their boy who was looking for a confrontation and found one. That is why he got up and faced Reeves to launch his physical attack on him. Oulson was a punk who got what he deserved for attacking someone. I wonder how many other people he pushed around and scared with his big boy scare tactics that he tried on Reeves but Reeves was the wrong number.

Sorry dude ... this is a forum for opinion. SH is just one poster here and is entitled to try and convince us that he is right. I think he has seen that over 57+ pages, he has not succeeded.

I would never even accost someone for texting in a theater, let alone shoot anyone. Can't imagine what Reeves would have done if the theater was crowded and everyone in the 2-3 rows in front of him were all texting during the preview. Would he have gone to management if 10 teenage girls were texting in front of him ?

I am not trying to convince anyone. I hope that of my posts provoked though in some of you but
its hard to think when you're heart is filled with hate.

Once again Leftee, Oulson did not get shot for texting. He got shot for attacking someone physically.

Shooting someone for the beliefs? How sad is that? The Nazi's did that.

Gee, thanks North. I'd rather be around someone with a weapon also. That way when thugs come up to us and say "give it up" there would be an option. For the rest of these wimpos after they handed over their property they would hand over their keys and tell them to go rob their houses too.


If ever they were in a situation where there was a imminent threat to their life and well being they would soil themselves and cry.

There is only one poster on here who can't control their temper and that is Spring Hillian, which is now resulting in name calling of other posters.
