Toddler Chokes To Death On Popcorn At Movie Theater

VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. - A three-year-old New York boy choked to death on popcorn while watching the sci-fi movie "Alien vs. Predator" with his family. The incident happened Sunday night at the Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas on Long Island.

Deontea Riley and his family were eating from a small tub of popcorn when his mother says she looked over and saw that he was choking.

They rushed him out of the theater and tried the Heimlich maneuver.

The boy's father says he tried everything he could, including putting his finger down the child's throat, but nothing worked.

Police arrived quickly and began CPR, but the boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Ok, I have problems with this on many, many levels. First of all, what the fuck is a three-year-old doing at a screening of Alien vs. Predator? This movie has been called one of the most violent movies ever. I know that well before three, my kids were able to form "nightmarish" thoughts and knew when and when not to be scared. What were they going to do afterwards, take him to a porn theater? Maybe a tattoo parlor. Perhaps a whorehouse on the way know, something to help him sleep. Maybe they should have been at a CPR class instead. What the fuck did they do, just sit there and watch him die? Just because you choke doesn't mean you die.

Second, is it possible that this kid choked on the popcorn because he was scared out of his little head and maybe gasped or jumped while he was eating? Fuck, that's just wrong in so many ways. Choking was probably the second most scary thing this kid was experiencing at the time.

Last, would anyone be against either having these "parents" sterilized or put to death? Again, WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING, TAKING YOUR THREE-YEAR-OLD TO ALIEN VS. PREDATOR??? I'll tell you what you were thinking, "We're very selfish people that really didn't want a kid, so we do what we want when we want instead of doing the responsible thing and growing the fuck up."

Maybe this kid is better off anyhow, given his "parents'" choices. I know some very responsible, great people that can't have kids, but these fucking idiots kill theirs? I have two words for them - firing squad.
