Retired police captain kills movie watcher for texting during a movie in a gun free zone.

Instead of violence staying safely on the movie screen, Chad Oulson, 43, and his wife, Nicole, 33, became trapped in their own horror in the audience that ended with the husband shot to death and a retired police captain facing murder charges, all from a dispute about texting, US authorities said.

Curtis Reeves, 71 and a retired Tampa police captain, is facing a charge of second-degree murder, accused of shooting Oulson in a cinema in Wesley Chapel, Florida, about half an hour outside Tampa.

...

The cinema has a policy of not allowing weapons in the auditorium, Molly McFerran, a spokeswoman for the cinema told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. There are signs on the walls with drawings of guns and knives with a heavy red slash. There are no metal detectors or searches, she said.

Years into retirement and the holier than thou do whatever we want with no regard continues.

At least he's going up for murder.


Although I have occasionally wanted to savagely murder people who text during movies...cops vs movie texters. That's a tough one.

The guy was texting before the movie even started.

Here is one for you HB.

The lawyer representing Christian Garnett, the Darien High School coach who was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated, among others, in Norwalk in October, is seeking the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's involvement in the investigation of alleged police brutality.

Mark Sherman, Garnett's lawyer, said he has been in touch with both agencies and that the complaint is "definitely" going to happen.

Garnett, 32, of Stamford, was arrested at 12:41 a.m. Oct. 31 after police saw him allegedly speeding on three tires and one rim on Connecticut Avenue.

Police said Garnett, who is the assistant football and junior varsity lacrosse coach at Darien High, failed multiple field sobriety tests and then "violently struggled with the officers attempting to handcuff him."

He also was charged with interfering with a police officer, assault on a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. He is also accused of kicking an officer who was trying to arrest him. According to the report, another officer punched Garnett in the face and used a stun gun to subdue him.

Police said he was still belligerent when taken to Norwalk Hospital and was handcuffed to a bed.

According to court records, police also found two grinders, one pipe, two syringes and a container with marijuana residue in Garnett's vehicle.

Sherman claims he secured video footage -- something he said police did not do -- from Hancock Pharmacy at 114 Connecticut Ave., across the street from where the arrest took place. He said he turned the footage over to police on Jan. 14 and that the video footage will be "helpful" for Garnett's case.

Sherman claims the video shows an officer being pulled off Garnett while several officers restrain him.

"We're very concerned that the attack on Christian coupled with the department's failure to retrieve that video raises concerns that there is a blue wall of silence in this case that we are having trouble penetrating," Sherman said outside the courtroom Tuesday.

Additionally, Sherman filed a complaint against the Norwalk police to investigate the arrest.

"We went into Norwalk police two days after his arrest and asked for a fair and thorough investigation," Sherman said. "Conveniently, the Norwalk police did not find this video; we did. It is outrageous that the defense team had to find a video of this arrest."

Norwalk Police Chief Tom Kulhawik said the investigation is pending.

Prior to Garnett's arrest, Officer Paul Wargo, one of the arresting officers, had been the subject of an investigation in October 2013 for allegedly striking a man with a flashlight whom he was attempting to detain. The investigation found that there were no policy violations, Kulhawik said.

Garnett said he suffered a stage-three concussion from the assault as well as a lower-orbital blowout fracture under his left eye, which he said required surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate to keep his eye from sinking in the socket, which he said can happen as a result of that sort of fracture.


"The pictures you saw do not speak to the extent of my injuries," Garnett said in reference to his mug shot, which shows his right eye swollen shut.

Darien Public Schools placed Garnett on administrative leave Nov. 1.

"The Darien Public Schools take seriously the duty of coaches and other adults to serve as role models and to comply with the laws," then-acting Superintendent of Schools Tim Canty said in his message to the community.

Garnett said he would like to get back to coaching "in theory" but that it's not a priority.

"I'm just trying to get my life back together," Garnett said.

The Norwalk police investigation is due within six to eight weeks. Kulhawik said there was a delay in the investigation while waiting for Garnett to go to the police station to be interviewed. Sherman said scheduling issues were the cause of the delay. The lead investigator asked and received a 60-day extension for the investigation, according to Kulhawik.

Sherman said the video shows that an officer was pulled away from Garnett, who was being restrained by several other officers when he was arrested just after midnight on Oct. 31, 2013. In addition, according to the defense lawyer, Norwalk police made statements in a recent hearing that were inconsistent with what the video showed.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A city and county in southern New Mexico have settled a lawsuit filed by a man taken to two hospitals and subjected to anal probes over suspicion of hiding drugs, the man's lawyer said Monday.

According to attorneys for David Eckert, Hidalgo County and the city of Deming recently settled their portion of a lawsuit for a total of $1.6 million.

The lawsuit, filed against police and sheriff's officials in Deming and Hidalgo County, which borders Mexico, alleges Deming police sought a search warrant for Eckert because they thought he appeared to be clenching his buttocks when he got out of his car in January 2013.

Hidalgo County sheriff's deputies told the Deming police officers Eckert was known in the area for carrying drugs inside his body, the lawsuit said. Police also brought in a drug-sniffing dog, which detected something in the driver's seat.

The lawsuit alleged a host of violations of Eckert's rights, including his being denied the right to make a phone call from the police station, the fact that the search warrant that was filed to search his body was valid only in Luna County but he was taken to a different county after a doctor at the local hospital refused to do the searches, citing ethical violations.

Despite the body searches, no drugs were found.

"It was medically unethical and unconstitutional," Shannon Kennedy, Eckert's attorney, told The Associated Press. "He feels relieved that this part is over and believes this litigation might make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else."

In a statement, Eckert said he felt vindicated by the settlement. "I feel that I got some justice as I think the settlement shows they were wrong to do what they did to me," Eckert said. "I truly hope that no one will be treated like this ever again. I felt very helpless and alone on that night."

Hidalgo County and Deming officials both declined to comment about the settlement.

A lawsuit against doctors and the hospital in the case is still ongoing.

Taxpayers on the hook yet again for police overzealousness. Shame the cops won't go to prison and get ass raped.

Hopefully the lawsuit against the doctors and the hospital go to trial and they all go bankrupt. Fucking pieces of shit.

Just had a consult with a stripper. She alleges an undercover cop came into the strip club last week, paid her for over $400 of lap dances over 2 hours, all the while trying to get her to agree to have sex with him. She didn't, just gave him lap dances. At the end of the night he revealed he was a cop and demanded the money be returned to him. No charges filed against her. Lolz.

I have a sneaking suspicion the cop wasn't actually undercover, and was just using his badge to get his money back. What an asshole.

Don't forget to expose his sorry ass to every media outlet there is. Full name, address married the whole fucking nine yards. I suppose the guy wasn't soliciting too right?

So the consult cost her more than she lost?
