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."

when I woke up this a.m.I could not believe my eyes and ears. I thought I was in a dream. This is the sickest most deviest thing this thing has done. There is no rime or reason for this sick action on his part. I am gald that the police didn't fall for his trap and bust into his apartment. He figured when they didn't find
stuff in his car, they would bust into his residence. Thna the lord the cops were smarter than he was. I send my prayers to all in Aurora and may they the other who didn't mae it mat they "REST IN PEACE" all my prayers to you all.

He is not crazy. He knew what he was doing, he planned all of it out. It scares me to think of this. But of course, some people are gonna blame the movie, some people are gonna blame the violence, some people might even blame the director...but NONE of that has to do with this man and his actions. My condolences to the families of victims and the 59 wounded.

24 years old? Thats the prime age for schizophrenia to be starting to kick in for males [females, more towards 30]. My cousins wife had it and it didn't surface til age 29, and she had 4 kids by then. Their one son inherited it and in 1983, at age 23, it kicked in on him. Mental illness is the most tragic, horrid thing that can ever happen to a person. This event truly is saddening.

He isn't crazy. He is just looking for a way out of his punishment. He knew full well what he was planning and what the end would be. May this man burn for his crimes against the innocent.
