Pasco County protecting this psycho.
Curtis Reeves has not yet gone to trial or even received a trial date as of today August 5, 2016 and won’t get a date till he goes before Judge Susan Barthle on February 20th of 2017. That is over 3 years after the murder of Chad Oulson in the Cobb Theater in Wesley Chapel, Florida on January 13, 2014. How the hell does this happen and why is it happening. Oulson’s wife and children are without a husband and father while Reeves sits at home in his air conditioning and not in jail after the murder of Oulson. He was released on $150,000.00 bond.
The first judge Pat Siracusa recused himself in July 2015 because the defense was taking too long to put together a case. When the hell is the last time you heard that? NEVER. This was a delaying tactic by the judge and the county. He recused himself 18 months after the murder. Again, if this were anyone else the judge would have told them you have had enough time. And now there is another judge. Why is it taking another year and a half to just set a trial date. Special treatment, favoritism, I’ll scratch your back you scratch mine by police and judges.
When they came to arrest Reeves they handcuffed him in front and did not put his hands behind him to handcuff him. I guess he would have been too uncomfortable. I believe they even got him a bottle of water because he was thirsty while Oulson was DEAD.
Why aren’t the local and national news covering and investigating this crap?
Where are the news stations? This is news with all the shootings by police and shootings of police so why isn’t this news anymore? Why is the court system protecting this guy? This is bullshit. If this were anyone but a cop they wouldn’t be out on bond and a small bond at that.
Reeves shot Oulson for throwing popcorn at him.
So Chad Oulson was shot during an argument about texting during the damn PREVIEWS not even the movie. AND he was texting not talking on his phone yet this psycho felt the need to complain to management and when that didn’t work took matters into his own hands and committed murder. Did anyone else complain to management about Oulson texting, probably not.
So Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves and Reeves was so afraid he took out a gun and shot Oulson in the chest and KILLED him. What kind of stupid son of a bitch carries a gun to a movie theater? What kind of stupid son of a bitch fires it with other people in the theater without regard for them? There were no punches thrown or fighting just popcorn being thrown and Reeves was so frightened he shot and KILLED Oulson like a dog or wild animal. Now his damn lawyer, Richard Escobar, is going to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. If the jury finds him not guilty or acquits him this sets a ridiculous precedent. So it has taken 3 years to put together a defense? Why? So witnesses forget details?
Other incidence reported.
During the news coverage a woman was interviewed who also had a conflict with Reeves and claimed Reeves even followed her out of the theater. This man was obviously looking for trouble and because he once was a cop thinks he can bully people not to mention shoot them.
Reeves’ attorney was former Hillsborough County prosecutor.
Yes, Richard Escobar was a former Hillsborough County prosecutor. Reeves was a police captain in Tampa, Florida which of course is in Hillsborough County. Does anyone see the connection here and the special treatment Reeves is being given. Not only that Pasco county, where the incident took place is part of the conspiracy to get Reeves off.
Stand Your Ground Law
This law basically states that people can stand their ground in a dispute if they think retreating will result in their own death or great bodily harm. WTF. So running from danger could result in death or great bodily harm. Getting popcorn thrown at you could result in death or great bodily harm? WTF. Again why would Reeves carry a gun to a theater unless he was looking for trouble or at the very least anticipated trouble? And if you think your life might be in danger why not keep your mouth shut? Why does a 70 year old man start trouble and carry a gun?
I don’t care what the jury eventually calls it but it was a murder not manslaughter or self defense from popcorn. His lawyer was a former Hillsborough prosecutor. How much favoritism will he and Reeves be given during the trial? Will the current prosecutor present the other victims of Reeves that were interviewed on TV? I doubt it. They will throw a half assed case before the court so as not to give the jury too much evidence so they can’t possibly find Reeves guilty or get a hung jury for their old friend Curtis Reeves.
