by at . Comments

For the time time since the deadly Colorado shooting that took 12 lives, someone associated with The Dark Knight Rises has spoken out.

And that someone is director Christopher Nolan.

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community," Nolan said, adding:

"I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting, but that they were there last night to watch a movie.

"I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."

James Holmes is in custody for the crime, which tragically took place just miles from the 1999 school shooting incident in Columbine, Colorado.

I know some clinics if you care to ask. You have a disorder and it's taking up space that adults could use on this site for intelligent conversation. I know you have many user names. I recognize your hate. Seek treatment ASAP. Obama has enough on his plate or so he says. Keep the faith Sara and vote Romney. He's the white man,... I mean the right man.
