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."

I am confident you are matt,kitkat,eyes,dania,caseclose,mildred,?,parenting, and 95%-any user name newly made that is attacking others.Have fun talking to yourself.


You take along time to respond because you are making sure you do not type or stumble within the various names your acting out.


@case closed, I said that yesterday about why would a 13 month old be at a midnight showing of Batman? Someone replied date night no sitter. The movie would have been there the next day. God bless all those poor people. It's sadder that better judgment wasn't used by parents.


@ Molly IF anyone should be deleted it's you and yer troll thug buddies. I am not causing any problems here. But you are egging on a fight. Hope the powers that be are wise enough to see you and those like you for what they are....and do something about it. Now go play "IP Address" Searcher--if anything it keeps you off the streets and away from causing problems for others in the real world.


@shootstraight--you are a sick, stupid, lame ass motherfarker. Period. Your gun knowledge doesn't make you interesting or scary, just lame.


I agree, the tragedy is real.The way matt is behaving as well as lucky,Eyes and truth-THG should delete your files.


Strange how come Holmes only managed to kill 12.
He did injure heaps, but to only manage a dozen DOA in that confined space,.,he should have killed at least a hundred.
It's obvious Holmes was trying get the massacre record.
With the firepower Holmes had compared to Cho's Virginia Tech shootemup tally of 32 with only a Glock 19 and Walther P22 there's a lot of lucky Batman fans alive in Denver who should by alrights be dead.


Aurora is an upscale predominately hispanic sub neighborhood so it is shocking he would do this.Very few blacks live there.Blacks visit from Denver.


Americans die in larger numbers annually by the hands of Americans.This is real.
