Recently, we reported that a retired Florida police officer gunned down Chad Oulson, a father of two, in a Florida movie theater during previews for “Lone Survivor.” Before the shooting, gunman Curtis Reeves had angrily approached Oulson to tell the man to stop texting.
Oulson, who was reportedly texting his daughter’s pre-school to let them know he was turning off his cell phone, was going to “beat the sh*t out of [Reeves],” if his story is to be believed. However, Reeves’ wife told police that she did not hear Oulson threaten Reeves–just that she trusts her husband.
Witnesses unanimously told police that the victim responded to the harassment over his cell phone with ““If it was any of your f***ing business, I was texting my daughter. Stay the hell out of my face.”
Reeves returned to his seat to grab his Second Amendment Stick, shot Oulson, and “just sat in his chair, he just kind of leaned back and just sat there, didn’t try to help” as the man died, according to Oulson’s widow.
Security footage of the incident seems to corroborate the former police officer’s story that Reeves threw something at him, as an object can be seen coming at him from out of frame.” While FOX News is perfectly content to conjure up a “data rage” theory, many are asking if an allegedly thrown cell phone is enough to warrant the loss of one’s life.
