I guess it all depends on how you value life. I won't get into a religious discussion, but humility is considered a virtue by most spiritual people.

You write as if a man who bugs you is important in your life. To me, if I walk away from a bully, I'm the winner.

Lets hope the court case brings to light who was the actual bully.
I go to many movies and cell phone usage is always in abundance before the movie starts,To go to a movie and sit right behind some one with a cell phone then start getting all pissed off at the person in front of you using a cell phone before the house lights have even gone down will be sure to start an argument, it could escalate to the point where the cell phone user could throw popcorn at the complainer.I'm sure i could speak to the person in front of me in a theatre in such a belligerent way as to cause that person to get mad enough for him to throw popcorn at me do i then have a right to kill the guy?
Going to be an interesting case.

The defense rests
You would have conducted a terrible defense. Its ridiculous to argue that throwing popcorn at you is felony assault, there is this thing called jurisprudence, I would bet the ranch his defense team would never go that route, his only chance is to argue that he feared for his life which is an absurdity by itself but there is a type of juror that will buy that crap.

Especially when the complainant himself was texting prior to the incident ...

Right, and if we were looking at a Venn diagram of Gun owners and people who think like that poster, the intersection is much bigger than I am comfortable with.

The trial is set for the 11th, do you think there's a chance of it getting delayed again?
The matter is way beyond cell phone and popcorn. Reeves shot the guy for one reason.

Either party can file a Motion to Continue but I am sure opposing counsel would move to have the motion denied. I think there has been enough time to allow each side to form their case.

The other person in this incident is dead. That's more than assault.
