On January 14, 2013, a young man with Down Syndrome went with his companion to see Zero Dark Thirty at the Regal Cinema in Frederick, MD. At the end of the movie, apparently because he wanted to see it again, he refused to get out of his seat. A Regal employee, rather than allowing him to stay and dealing with the situation later with his parents and the companion, called not one, not two, but three off duty Frederick County police officers who were working security for the theater at the time.

According to published reports, when the officers/ security guards asked him to leave, he mouthed off at them and "resisted arrest". Those of you who know my son Landon can visualize what this would look like. In response, the officers wrestled him to the ground where he asphyxiated in handcuffs. The handcuffs were removed and EMS called and according to the police news release he later died at hospital. I don't know how that reconciles with the coroner's finding of asphyxiation which I thought was pretty immediate.

The price of a ticket at the cinema is between $9 and $11. The additional cost to Regal of allowing him to watch the movie again was ZERO. But instead a beloved young man died on the floor of a movie theater in his neighborhood at the hands of people he was taught would protect him.

The police officers remain on duty and were allowed to invoke their rights as police officers not to provide statements even though they were not on duty or performing official duties at the time. They were security guards in police uniforms.

The county police are investigating and the story has received local news coverage. Please share this everywhere both to ensure justice but also to raise public awareness.

ELEVEN DOLLARS

Where is our humanity when a young, obviously disabled young man dies for the price of a movie ticket. My son is worth a lot more to me and society than eleven dollars.
Awaken the mind.

so sad. my best friend in the 2nd grade had downs syndrome and he was always full of love and kindness. couldnt the theater employee and the "security guards" recognize he was so differently abled? Down's syndrome has quite obvious physical and speech traits and they should have seen these and cut him slack.... shit i woulda paid for the friggin ticket!
Cops have it both ways. In or out of uniform and on/off public duty, they're not held accountable for their often ill-thought-out reactions, and travesties of justice, and the out and out slaughter of citizens!

why on earth would they attack him over him "mouthing off" he was literally handicapped. All they had to do was physically lift him up and leave the theater or call his parents and wait.

It sounds like those cops were more mentally handicapped than he was.

I wonder if the movie had anything to do with it. Wonder if it came up.

Alert: Resistance in the movie theater after watching 0DT.

Would the same thing have happened if it was Babmi?

I dunno...maybe I'm reading more into it than is necessary.

How hard would it be to talk to the guy, and reason with him, and ultimately just give him a pass?

A disabled guy got to see a movie he paid for a second time for free...there is no justice in the world!

Shit..he should be allowed to see it twice just due to his learning disability.

Any thug with a criminal justice degree can get a job as a cop nowadays. Two murderous scumbag cops. I hope they rot in prison since the coroner ruled his death a homicide.

You don't even need that. A high school diploma will do. Most cops are punks who use to get bullied in high school or got in trouble and had a hook on the force which gt them in. Alot of them have priors. So yeah, they'll take advantage of a handicapped guy to enhance themselves because of their insecurities.
