Silence is Golden

From Odd News:

A Philadelphia resident, enraged because a family was talking loudly during a film, has thrown popcorn at a boy and shot the youngster's father.

James Joseph Cialella Jr, 29, was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons violations for shooting another film goer in the left arm, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Cialella was furious for being disturbed while watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which stars Brad Pitt and Australia's Cate Blanchett.

'It's truly frightening when you see something like this evolve into such violence ... that something like this leads to a shooting in a movie theatre,' police spokesman Lieutenant Frank Vanore was quoted as saying.

Cialella first asked the talkative family to quiet down and threw popcorn at a boy who was talking to his father. Next, Cialella and the father got into an argument, which turned physical and Cialella whipped out a handgun and shot the man.
