A Man was Shot for Eating his Popcorn too Loud


Lord, I was shocked to hear this... And shocked that it wasn't in Arizona. A man was shot in a theater for eating his popcorn too loud.
A man has been shot dead at a cinema in Latvia after a fellow movie-goer objected to the volume at which he was eating his popcorn. The assailant, 27, reportedly had a brief argument with the man, aged 43, who was sitting next to him during a screening of Black Swan in the Forum cinema, one of the largest in the city of Riga.

When the credits rolled, the younger man pulled out a legally registered firearm and shot the other man dead. Other audience members then phoned for the police and an ambulance. The younger man – a graduate of the police academy who holds a doctorate in law from the University of Latvia – waited to be arrested.
That's some crazy ass stuff. See, that's why I only go to the high end theater, The Arclight. They don't stand for that kind of mess.

What has the world come to? Sad.

You said that he was a police academy graduate, I wonder if he was an active duty cop. Could you imagine what he may have done out in the field?
