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.

  • 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."

Well Well Well........ Why would anyone waste a conversation about gun control when it's obvious by this thread........ Mental Health is the real issue. Bitches Sara Molly = same person. It's a disgrace to mankind that you couldn't even wait for the blood to dry. Hopefully Obama will put aside his campaign for a Colorado trip. You spend your days chasing Matt. I guess that means Bush is finally getting a break? You are sick and your multiple personality disorder needs attention. Don't waste a minute. A little rant here and there is one thing but my GOD you have taken schizophrenia to another level. I will give a good thought to you. @eyes- this is beyond help, even with your training.


When I read over the comments made here it shows hast, and anger. How many of you thought out your post carefully? We each may be haughty at some point do to exhaustion, PMS, or sleep deprivation, etc. However, while gun control has been disgust regarding this issue, perhaps we all need a sanity meter to read us before we leave our dwellings. If the meter finds you are not quite the calm person you need to be it locks you in your home. We have drive by shootings, road rage, shopper rage (X-mas fights at the store), rapist, now these mass murders that do massacres. Yes we have freedom, but we need some kind of way to measure or monitor those who have literally just snapped psychologically. There are lots of psychology tests out there that are designed to measure personalities we need to catch those psychotic breaks before they go on rampages like they have been doing. Thanks for reading me.

PS Btw, Bitches I hear they've got some great 'anti-anxiety' drugs on the market. Looks like it's time to have a pow-wow with your physician about them. Go ahead, hun. Don't be shy.
