The article doesn’t even begin to talk about the mass murderer until close to the end.

Well, if he’s really smart then he’ll have no trouble understanding why people would want him executed (except of course that will never happen in today’s society).

Wow. What a heavy load of psychological poop. I let someone else strain their brain over that one.

I’m more interested in the basics:

Where did an unemployed med student get the $20,000 for that stash of weapons, explosives, body armor and assorted military peripherals?

John Gacy was a really funny clown and Ted Kaczynski was a very dedicated environmentalist.

“Staged just in time for a vote on the UN small arms treaty?

More and more, this shooting is looking like a deliberate plot staged by the government itself much like Operation Fast and Furious pulled off by the ATF (http://www.naturalnews.com/032934_ATF_illegal_firearms.html) which helped smuggle tens of thousands of guns into Mexico for the purpose of causing “gun violence” in the USA, then blaming the Second Amendment for it.”

No way to know, as yet, but according to the media, he was a registered Democrat. What happened to the assertion by ABC that he may have been a member of the Tea Partry? Oh, they were so wrong again! ABC has a habit of being 180 degreees away from the truth.

"Using a camera with a zoom lens, [the neighbor] said he could see into the suspect's kitchen, where a poster of Will Farrell in the movie Anchorman was hanging on the kitchen wall."

Hmmm ...

We have a kid that was super book smart at a San Diego high school. And appeared to be super book smart at a second-tier college in the University of California system.

But he wasn’t smart enough to realize that there are few entry-level jobs in neuroscience research laboratories for people with “only” a bachelor’s degree so he apparently spent a year after graduation living in his parents’ basement.

He came late to the realization that he would need a doctorate to get a decent research position in a neuroscience research laboratory so he applied for admission to a doctoral program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and was admitted.

He was admitted largely based on his book smarts while at UC Riverside. But he found himself moving up from a second-tier school to a first-tier school. He lasted a year in a three (or more) year program. While the University of Colorado has not said why the shooter withdrew from the program last month (and probably cannot comment on why he did so without his permission), I suspect he was not able to do graduate work that would qualify him to continue in a doctoral program. Either he is not as smart as we (and he) have been led to believe or he was spending too much time away from his studies doing something else.

Has anyone else wondered why his car was registered in Tennessee? Had he become a resident of Tennessee before he enrolled at the University of Colorado? If so, what was he doing in Tennessee?

There is a lot more to this story than we have been told so far.

(from an earlier FR thread)

That’s what I keep asking. I haven’t heard the MSM ask, though.

“More and more, this shooting is looking like a deliberate plot staged by the government itself much like Operation Fast and Furious pulled off by the ATF “

Good call. You would have to live in a state of suspended disbelief to think that a guy who as far as anybody has reported has no background in firearms and now suddenly he becomes proficient with an assault rifle, shotgun and semi auto handgun no less. In addition he manages to handle these weapons proficiently in a high stress situation. I don’t think so.

Where did a college kid get $20,000 to buy all that gear and acquire the expertise to rig his apt with “sophisticated” explosives? Which I now heard is a bunch of fireworks. Where did he get tear gas and a kevlar helmet? You can’t get those online unless you are an LEO or military.

This thing has false flag stamped all over it.

This settles it for me, the guy has to be a democrat, a Republican would never be described that way.

Did anyone ever confirm the report that his car had Tennessee plates? Seems there were a lot of stories floating around that either weren’t true or couldn’t be corroborated.

About him being booksmart: Many schools these days have lowered the bar so much that no one is a failure. When I was a lass, a QPA of 4.0 made you valedictorian. This past year, my alma mater’s valedictorian had a QPA of 2.7. Maybe Holmes was one of those kids who graduated at or near the top of his class, but was barely litterate.

I think this man's frame of mind is one that obcessed with the Batman characters,...most especially the Joker. I think he became suffused with anticipation of the latest rendition of the Batman movie, and as he did he obcess, pathologically, with the Joker (specifically the Heath Ledger rendition). Over the past 2 months or so he became so obcessed he decided to live out that Ledger character. His obcession degenerated to a point where he could not discern reality from his obcession with the Joker. Remember in the movie the Joker began with a takedown of the bank. This was a very violent movie with a lot of killing depicted...specifically shot by guns. Then as he was in jail, near the end, explosions went off...the DA was injured....The Joker was not through even as he sat in prison.....just like our Aurora Joker, he was still blowing up things and people.

When he was apprehended behind the theater, the police asked him who he was,...he said, "I am the Joker." The authorities need to look at the movie again.

Not that it matters one bit, but here's my thoughts.

This kid had everything he wanted, college education working on a career as a physician. Tough life. But he refused to grow up.

This little bastard doesn't care about the lives he took nor the people he has hurt forever. I know of no reason why this spoiled little momma's boy is still alive when the sun came up the next day.

I HATE people like this. I don't care why he did it. Kill him.
