Curtis Reeves

A Tampa, Florida police captain exclaimed ‘I can’t believe what I’ve done’ after fatally shooting a fellow moviegoer because he was texting, a witness said.

Alan Hamilton, a Sumter County cop, was inside the West Chapel screening of Lone Survivor and watched as 71-year-old police officer Curtis Reeves shot dead 43-year-old Chad Oulson.

    I haven’t seen anyone yet mention the possibility that Curtis Reeves has untreated or improperly treated medical problems. My mother’s medication was not controlling her blood pressure properly for a time, while a new prescription was still being tweaked by her doctor. I noticed that she had uncharacteristic outbursts of temper and was easily angered by innocuous acts of strangers (e.g., in the grocery store).

    I have not seen any reports that Mr. Reeve had a poor record during his years of police service. If he had, it would surely have been widely publicized by now. If he was a sensible officer then and only now in old age has irrational emotional outbursts (unfortunately while carrying a gun), then I again suggest this his problem is not homicidal in nature, but medical.

      I’ve seen the same effect in people after a massive heart attack, some of them becoming completely different people in terms of anger and their reaction to even minor provocations.

    IF anyone at this point doubts the radical Collectivist and racist nature of Pres. ScamWOW, this in-your-face appointment should dispel even that level of denial.

    Last month Maureen Faulker, the widow of murdered Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, requested a chance to give testimony against President Obama’s nominee to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Her husband was killed in 1981 by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of murder in 1982. Thirty years after the conviction, nominee Debo Adegbile voluntarily took up Abu-Jamal’s case and the cause in the name of race during his time as the head of NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Republican Senator Chuck Grassley asked for Faulkner’s request to present testimony be granted, but Democrats have blocked her from doing so. The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote today on Adegbile’s nomination.

    In all of the U.S., there are few people LESS worthy of this office, and few women more entitled to be heard respecting his nomination.

    Why is he upset? He stood his ground and exercised his second amendment rights. He’s a hero and a patriot.

      Such a typical, idiot statement.

      But highly collectable for instruction of fellow voters unaware of how demented you Collectivists are.

    Oh, lookee…

    Pres. ScamWOW is considering ANOTHER illegal suspension of his name-sake law…!!!

    Boy, that thang shore is a’wonder of FAIL.

    Just like we’ve been saying for years.

    Oh, but, hey…that is ALL good,see, because…moonbattery…

    Job-killing machine. Say it with me…

    Adding to a devastating CBO report of how Obamacare could damage the economy, a Duke University survey of top companies found that 44 percent are considering reducing health benefits to current employees due to Obamacare, confirming the fears of millions of American workers.

    In its December survey of chief financial officers around the country, Duke also found that nearly half are “reluctant to hire full-time employers because of the Affordable Care Act.”

    And 40 percent are considering shifting to part-time workers and others will hire fewer workers of fire some to avoid the costs of the program.

    What’s more, they said in the study, “One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.”

    I dunno, but that seems like “pwoof” that ObamaDoggle is killing job formation. Oh, and “income equality”, too.

    Interesting, this Collectivist love of those who hate America and kill, and those who defend and help them…
