Threat Allegedly Made During Theatre Incident

KSAL Staff - July 18, 2014 4:24 pm

A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

A man who was asked to leave a Salina movie theatre earlier this week was asked to leave not because he had a concealed gun, but rather because he threatened an employee with it. That’s according to a statement from the theatre.

The incident happened Tuesday morning at the Starplex Cinemas in the Central Mall.

According to a statement from the theatre manager, “the police asked the customer to leave, not theatre staff”. She says “police weren’t called because the man had a concealed gun, but because the man spoke to our employee with a threatening tone while showing his gun”. She adds “we want all of our employees and customers to be in a safe environment at all times”.

The man was given tickets to come back at a later time.

No charges are being sought in the case.

OK if this guy was the average Joe citizen of Salina he would be in jail. Evidently he has connection’s. Could it be with law enforcement or the county attorney’s office? He is connected that is for sure.

I see “Redneck Good Ole Boy” Fred Hanson has his conspiracy theory as usual. Fred you just worry about your redneck racist bigot son getting out of jail and don’t worry about what else
goes on in Salina. You will sleep better. By the way , that confederate flag you fly at your house is outdated and impresses no one…..Lol.

Umm Yea, Fred Hanson is not an accurate example of a white person, and does not represent the rest of us white trash.
Anyway Fred your comments the other day saying this man should have complied because others didn’t like it, is beyond ignorant! Hes shouldn’t have a gun because he was standing up for his rights and fighting discrimination? He didn’t brake a single law! No signs are posted anywhere in our Central dump Mall. Also open carry is and has been legal but if it wasn’t he has a permit. Id love to Know what a threating tone was??? Was it he raised his voice after being harassed and discriminated against??
