Man shot dead for eating popcorn too loudly during movie

Police said they had arrested a 27-year-old man suspected of shooting a 42-year-old fellow audience member who later died of his wounds.
The conflict took place as the credits rolled during a screen of the Oscar-nominated film "Black Swan", according to police in the Baltic state.
Witnesses told the Latvian news agency Leta that it arose over how loudly the deceased man was eating his popcorn.

The inconsiderate behavior of fellow moviegoers is one of the reasons we rarely go to flicks anymore. I've oft times suggested that each individual seat should have a sort of ejection device capable of catapulting the occupant somewhere nasty should enough people target his or her location as warranting drastic action.

Shooting is good too though.
