Skip to comments.My Apology for "James Holmes Black Bloc OWS Evidence? - Hate Is On the Rise"
Posted on 07/22/2012 7:21:37 PM PDT by frithguild
I am going to put this at the top, though it refers to Update 6, where I posted a Reuters image captured October 1, 2011 on the Brooklyn Bridge of a protester that appears in the YouTube video I have found so curious. The clarity of this image leads me to conclude, contrary to what I have believed the past several days, that the protester that appears when James W. Holmes sings "hate is on the rise" is not James E. Holmes. It appears that all of this is just a weird thing on the internet.
I apologize to the man being taken by the police for associating him with a mass murderer. I also apologize for associating OWS with James E. Holmes with images and opinions I posted below. I sincerely regret my mistakes.
A lot of people jumped the gun on this incident.
What we do at this point....THIS point... is going to determine our futures.
Keep your powder dry.
Whatever...still not going to the link.
So they pushed out a knee jerk story the same way CBS did?
They didn’t - I did.
So were you just trolling to see who you could get to buy and repeat your story?
And there were post after post yesterday telling everybody that this guy was not the same man here on Freerepublic.
There was a person who called in to the Denver KOA 850 Mike Rosen radio coverage of this event and a caller stated that he had been a part of the filming of the Occupy Denver events for a documentary. He said that he was pretty sure they had film of Hansen at the Occupy events and thinks they even have an on-film interview with him. They are supposed to be reviewing film to determine if this is correct. I have not heard further on this review of the film. Rosen had his call screener get contact information for this person so there should be some conclusion soon.
has it been concluded that Holmes is not a Black Bloc activist?
I don’t think that’s the reason, it is to apologize. Not sure, they arrested him just on his say so? How/why he got arrested I don’t get.
I really am going to have to rethink this interweb thing. I thought it was all true.
The only thing that has not been disproven was the research that showed he was a Muslim convert.
Last I read, his file has been sealed since it is ‘contrary to public interest’ and will ‘hamper the investigation’
Masterful blog promotion.
Tough crowd here on FR, but they should be.
However, when we postulate it is human nature to work toward proving the suspected as opposed to the opposite. It causes a type of mental myopia that is very difficult to overcome. It happens to all of us and to crucify someone for this is disingenuous at best, especially when they admit their shortcomings.
Learn from your mistake and endeavor to not repeat it.
Should have written Holmes not Hansen.
i mean on FR.
OK, no OWS. Thanks.
