Aurora Shooting Victims

Meanwhile, with James Holmes in custody and new information continuing to leak out regarding this suspect, President Obama touched down yesterday in Aurora.

He visited the University of Colorado Hospital, visited with the families of the victims and met with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.

"Out of this darkness a brighter day is going to come," Obama said. "Although the perpetrator of this evil act has received a lot of attention over the last couple of days that attention will fade away. And in the end, after he has felt the full force of our justice system, what will be remembered are the good people who were impacted by this tragedy."

omg what is wrong with you people now in days. you dont have any sympathy for people. these innocent people were watching a movie not thinking some crazy man was gona go in there and start shooting up the place. and as for the people that say there were no heros, there were those men that shielded there girlfriends from gettin shot and how could a person say that the mother should die, of course its sad and tragic that the daughter died but no one knows what happen in there situation and now the mother has to deal with her baby being gone and living with that image the rest of her life. People need to think before they speak.

Looking at all your comments is horrible.. coming from someone that is related to the 6 year old come on really it brings me to tears that you guys think that way... i may not have met her but she is still my cousin no matter what some of you just need to get on with your lives and quit criticizing what other parents do with their kids. They were at the wrong place at the wrong time.. be lucky for the ones that have kids that get to grow up..my cousin on the other hand did not get a chance her life was just beginning and some guy was not happy with his own life so he went insane and killed a bunch of inocent people..

the little girl and her father are part of my family... i never met them that i know of but i came home from a camp to a phone call saying that two of my family members were killed and one injured and doesnt even kno that her husband and daughter are gone...The guy deserves to not see the light of day again.

This is a sad time for all. Don't make it worse by pointing fingers or trying to tell people that they shouldn't let their kids have a little fun over the summer. Holmes should be dancing at the end of a rope right now. The death penalty is too good for him.

@newyork Kind of funny how you can post your views and tell other that than can not do the same. This utterly suprises me. People are laughing?? Only you, my friend, which makes me question your moral integrity. The mother should be dead??? What kind of person are you?!?! To wish death on an innocennt women. Wonder how you would feel if someone posted such comments about 9-11? I am actually sadden by your lack of empathy, hopefully one day your views will change. Good luck and God bless

@peter what heros are you speaking about exactly? We dont know if anybody there did anything heroic for sure. People use that word to loosely nowadays. You getting killed doesnt make you hero. You trying to save yourself but happen to get shot in front of somebody doesnt make you s hero. Be grateful Christian Bale even came. The only reason anybody is acting concerned is for PR. To bad so sad.
