+ - Man shot to death for texting during movie

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The New York Times reports that an argument over texting ended in a cellphone user’s death when a retired police officer in the audience shot him in a theater near Tampa, Florida on Monday. The report notes that "cinema executives acknowledged during a trade conference last year that they debated whether to accommodate younger viewers by allowing text messages during some movies.""
