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."

We do not need to see Christian Bale right now. We need to see the ones who are the real heroes. Christian Bale's presence is good but he is not the real hero. The ones who lost their lives are the real heroes who always deserve to be seen. This is not some opportunity for a PR stunt or a photo moment and I am not saying Christian Bale is doing that but this is a time for the heroes of this tragedy to be in a greater spotlight than him.


@Adriana I do wish that you would do your research before you post such comments. Her mother was with her in the theatre. She was shot 2 times, the last I heard she was still in the hospital fighting for her life. As for the father, he was not there that night (by the grace of God). Not pointing fingers......shame on you!!!! :'( This is a horrible event for our community and such posts do not help. Lori from CO


What a horrible nightmare... Imagine killing a little six year old girl who didnt even see it coming.. just wanting to watch a movie. I swear to god if i were there id jump over her immediately. Not to point fingers, but did her parents even do anything?


Why is it anybodies concern why a 6 yr old was at the midnight viewing, it was her parents decision. Its summer vacation let the lil ones have some fun but in this case its not the fact that she was there at midnight its the fact that some heartless evil guy took these innocent peoples lives.


who cares why a 6 year old was at a midnight viewing, that is at a parents discretion. Shame on all of you that have anything negative to say about these victims or their families!! You wouldn't be laughing if it had been you or your loved ones that were killed.


I dont see what the big deal is really.....if this wouldve happened during any other movie nobody would care.....bad stuff always happens in Colorado arent they use to it by now....and why was a 6 yr old at a midnight premier....her parents must feel dumb especially if they were there but they lived.....LMFAO damn dat would be messed up....


He is sane that is problem.i can buy a gun easier than i can buy a car and house or get a credit card in some states colorado bein one that is a problem.


how could you ruin something as innocent as going to the movies?? and something as fun and exciting as a midnight premier? this guy deserves a lot worse than anything anyone can do to him.


Irritating viewing the photos. The monster deserves to die.The courts shoudn't be giving him royal family treatment.


I am very upset with this whole event I ask myself why like everyone else does and why was a six yr old there that late and its just sad
