    Article Text:
    A man has been shot dead at a cinema in Latvia after a fellow movie-goer objected to the volume at which he was eating his popcorn. The assailant, 27, reportedly had a brief argument with the man, aged 43, who was sitting next to him during a screening of Black Swan in the Forum cinema, one of the largest in the city of Riga.

    When the credits rolled, the younger man pulled out a legally registered firearm and shot the other man dead. Other audience members then phoned for the police and an ambulance. The younger man a graduate of the police academy who holds a doctorate in law from the University of Latvia waited to be arrested.

    I guess that's another reason you should get the heavily buttered popcorn.

    Too bad they didn't instill a little common sense! Well, I guess that about does it for his law enforcement and legal career.

    I guess he'll be needing the services of an attorney that finished school. . . if one will represent him.

    Latvia used to be one of the former Soviet Republics around the Baltic Sea. Perhaps this guy was trained by former Russian Policemen. That would explain his "shooting first" and perhaps asking questions later.

    And the moral of this story?
    Learn proper eating etiquette...chew with your mouth CLOSED, or it could prove fatal!

    I am really torn on this one folks.

    As much as I absolutely hate the noisy and extremely irritating and annoying way those Latvians chew their popcorn....I would also very much hate being spattered with organic tissue, blood, and brain matter while I am trying to concentrate on the movie credits.

    So...I'm thinkin' maybe 30 days in jail, 2 years probation & a cash reimbursment for everybody that purchased a ticket for the screening.
