    What has really surprised me is that we still haven´t heard with which video game he trained for hi/got the idea from for this. Should we really get a shooting for once that isnt blamed on gaming culture ?
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???

    Granted, he could be of Irish decent. However, he could equally trace decent from anywhere in the western half of the Island of great Britain.

    Police Body Armour.


    It seems to me that Holmes would still have a much better chance in any such engagement than his un-armoured opponent. Remember, Holmes was carrying a semi-automatic rifle and a shotgun. The theatre seats would provide minimal protection to anyone hoping to use them to shelter from these weapons, especially at close or medium range.

    This is assuming that the attacker could be eliminated. I am not convinced that in this instance he could have been. Not by a single opponent firing a typical handgun.

    In my opinion for someone armed only with a handgun to put Holmes out of action and without risking killing anyone else, they would have needed to get almost within arms length of him and shoot him in an area of his body unprotected by armour. However as soon as they started approaching him (rather than running away like everyone else) they would have revealed themselves as a threat and then Holmes could have trained his rifle or shot gun in their direction until he hit them. They would have found it difficult to take evasive action due to the conditions and would only have succeeded in drawing fire upon themselves and whomever they were with.

    Side by side we can read above that those people cannot bear guns in the Cinema. I easily can imagine that this affair will lead to a more rigorous gun control. The people will be more defenceless to similar idiots.
    Possibly. Or possibly it will mean more armed guards in public places, which might be a good thing.

    I did actually hear that from a libtard today! It's like some implanted mantra!

    What they said was, 'Two things; Guns don't kill people, people do! If nobody had guns none of this would have happened.'

    People like that ^ are the only reason for gun control as they quite obviously lack any reasoning capability.

    Clearly we need to get rid of people. Then the guns can be free.

    I wasn't aware of that, but I doubt the connection is significant.

    Hmm.. our opinions on what constitutes a fit subject for levity differ somewhat. However, as long as you are not planning a stand-up tour of Colorado in the next week or two you should be OK.

    It was not meant to make a serious event humorous, it was meant in a, 'life is weird and ridiculous' kind of way. I am just baffled at the disturbing suprises we get in the news these days and am trying to make sense of it and can't.

    Columbine is a famous mass shooting up of a school that didn't occur too many years ago in which a similar kind of insane, disturbed young man was involved. What's weird is that the place of the Columbine shooting is actually not far from the place of the movie theatre shooting. The coincidences in life are just strange sometimes.

    So, it seems as though this lunatic thinks he is really Batman's arch-nemesis the Joker and even in jail he is behaving like he is in a movie:

    Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes jailed in solitary: ‘All the inmates were talking about killing him’

    'He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards,' a just-released inmate told the Daily News. 'He's spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.'

    MOVIE MASSACRE suspect James Holmes remained unapologetic and irrational Saturday in a Colorado jail where his life was at risk from inmates bent on revenge.

    Holmes, held under suicide watch in solitary confinement, remained in his murderous “Joker” persona after arriving at the Arapahoe Detention Center, a jailhouse worker told the Daily News.

    “Let’s just say he hasn’t shown any remorse,” the employee said. “He thinks he’s acting in a movie.”


    The man accused in the midnight theater massacre was still acting bizarrely a day after his rampage at a screening of “The Dark Night Rises” — the last film in the Batman trilogy.

    “He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards,” one released inmate told The News outside the jail. “He’s spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.”

    Two other just-released inmates said the concerns of jail officials over Holmes’ survival were well-founded.

    On the suspect’s first night in jail, other prisoners serenaded him with a chant of “kid killer” — a reference to the fatal shooting of a 6-year-old girl.

    “All the inmates were talking about killing him,” Wayne Medley, 24, said as he left the facility. “Everyone was looking for an opportunity. It’s all they could talk about.”

    Inmate Dima Danilov, 22, said the suspect’s face was covered with a red towel when he arrived at the jail about two hours after 12 people were killed and 58 injured in the Aurora, Colo., multiplex.

    Holmes — who had dyed his hair red — was also wearing red clothing beneath the black body armor that terrified moviegoers saw when he opened fire early Friday morning, Danilov said.

    Jail guards “blacked out his windows with duct tape so no one could see him,” said Danilov. “He was cuffed in the back and had leg shackles.”

    The deranged suspected killer, a former honors student and Ph.D. candidate, said nothing and walked deliberately to his cell with six officers. He was offered a breakfast of grits and sausage, and a ham sandwich for lunch. If Holmes was sent into the general jail population, “he won’t live to see Monday’s court appearance,” Danilov said.
    That does it, I think it is time we ban these out-of-control superhero movies once and for all, or it least institute mandatory background checks and 7-day waiting periods for any "movie-fanatic" who wants to see such a dangerous type of film!
