You think being a ex-cop he would show some restraint...

Kinda off topic, but I'm from Ames Iowa, where a cop just shot a unarmed teenager this summer for "stealing" his dads truck. I think this militarization of P.D.'s is going too far. I know not all cops are like that, but still makes you think.

I don't think "protect and serve" is a accurate slogan anymore.

I can't believe the comments. People are actually blaming the guy for texting.

I realize you are being sarcastic, but perhaps this would have ended much differently if the victim has been packing heat.

Ban movies.

A 71 y/o retired cop shoots a guy in a movie theater after an escalating argument, and the problem is that militarization of police is going too far?

Confirmation bias, much?

I don't know how this could have happened.

The theater was a cell-phone free zone. How could he have had his phone out? They were banned.
