James Holmes to Police: I'm The Joker

by at . Comments

We have a disturbing update on James Holmes, the 24-year old suspected of killing 12 people and injuring dozens more inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater this morning.

Holmes
  • The shooting took place at approximately 12:38 a.m. local time.
  • Holmes protected himself with a ballistic helmet, a vest, a throat protector, a gas mask and black tactical gloves
  • Officials believe Holmes acted on his own: “We are not looking for any other suspects,” said Oates. “We are confident he acted alone.”
  • Holmes possessed three weapons when he was arrested behind the theater: an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington shotgun and a 40-caliber Glock handgun. All were purchased legally.
  • Holmes' hair was painted red and he told police, upon being apprehended, that he was "The Joker."

At last count, 71 people were wounded in this gunman's attack. President Obama addressed the nation earlier today, honoring the victims and asking America's to treasure the fragility of life.

Mitt Romney, meanwhile, has also made a speech in which he offered his "deepest condolences" to those affected by the tragedy and added:

"I stand before you today not as a man running for office but as a father and grandfather, a husband, an American. This is a time for each of us to look into our hearts and remember how much we love one another and how much we love and how much we care for our great country. There’s so much love and goodness in the heart of America."

@Charlie: Bravo! Well said! It seems everyone has forgotten the tragedy that has happened and turned it into a political bitch-fest instead. I pray the families of those affected find strength and solace......this is truly horrifying.

@All This Time: Be brave. I hear that there's a Washington "think tank" plan to rocket these woefully pathetic nutjobs to other parts of the universe. "To Go Where No Troll Freak Has Gone Before"! They argue it'll cleanse the planet of these losers while bringing down the tax base due to ever decreasing entitlement recipients, and then thru manadatory sterilization of their families--this human tragedy will be averted and thus, not effect future generations. It's curretnly getting a lot of play in D.C.

Can you imagine supporting this group of Aids infested people by way of Barry's tax plan. And that's not even the worst of it- then they will reproduce. Yep- again.

You're right Matt much as I hate to admit it! I need to behave or better yet vanish, but something deeply dysfunctional keeps me here. The psychiatrists have tried to put a label on it, but alas, I've got a unique disorder complicated by cerebral damage caused when my ho mama dropping me when offered a $20 bill one night. She then stumbled over me to climb into a little VW beetle and I rolled to the curb and had to be fished out of a sewer drainage hole! I lost oxygen for over 15 min.-yeah, critical. Even Mom's john felt bad. Of course, the fact that the Vice Squad was called & I was placed in foster care didn't help. But, enough of my sad, pathetic life---I'll go now!

You were wondering if I was out there last night? I was wondering if you were as stupid as you seemed! Yes- I saw your queer ass laying your tracks- incoherent rambling , asking questions then answering them out of order on a different thread under - TIM & KAREN. Medication? Your off of it. You sure talk about gays quite often? Fetish? I bet you have those little T-Rex arms don't you. Can't even wipe your own ass after you shit. Again- I know it's only you. You come and you leave all at once. Seek help today before Obama destroys any kind of assistance you can get.

@BREAKING NEWS Interesting comments below...I don't know how many times I've heard that Obama is a closet gay. No wonder Michelle's got that wicked witch look to her...she's finding black bucks hidin' in closets all over the White House. Food stamps and welfare checks stuffed in their hands...guess that's what POTUS pays 'em in regarding their "services". PS Matt is so very HETRO...trust me. It's like----ZOWWWEEEE!

Shit there is not but one of you typing and you can't even follow along with the questions you ask yourself. You miss him don't you? You hate him but you can't live without him. You tiptoe like an elephant. Is life that boring? Or are you in a mesmerizing state. Your really should seek guidance. 2 small kids and newly divorced....... and your up talking at me? Well since we are being honest..... I'm an astronaut. An astronaut who has a PHD in Bullshitology. You could possibly be a star pupil. Only time will tell.
