My Apology for "James Holmes Black Bloc OWS Evidence? - Hate Is On the Rise"
Radio Free NJ ^ | 7/22/2012 | frithguild

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.

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.

At first the tin foil hat nuts said he was a Tea Party member and the tin foil hat nuts said he was OWS and both have proven to be incorrect.

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’

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.

Apology accepted.

Strictly a hobby for me. I have learned a lesson about being more circumspect.

At least you have the courage to admit your mistake and announce it publicly. That puts you ahead of about 90% of the populace.

All you had to do was READ the credits at the end of the video and google the guy’s name.

Not only to mention the “protester” in the video looked NOTHING like Holmes.

I cringed reading the IDIOTS here who, without doing a lick of 5th grader research, posting “Yeah that’s him”.

Sad.

It’s a lot easier not to jump the gun if you just wait until you have all the facts.

It’s not like freepers are trying to catch a killer, so that we need to take leaps of logic and educated guesses. There’s no race here, the goal is getting facts, not being quick.

We are so attuned to getting news “fast” that we’ve totally lost the idea of getting things right.

A number of us are still researching any ties to the black bloc the shooter may have.IMHO,nothing has been decided yet unless I missed recent stuff.

We are also attuned to the fact that the leftist enemedia has a habit of skewing and/or hiding details of stories to make their liberal masters look good -or to make us conservatives look bad.

Exactly, when i heard stephy stupidnoplous and brian ross claim holmes was Tea Party which is bizarre if not stupid, I figured something was up. A quick survey of the web points to occupy black bloc which of course points to the dnc /dems and ozero.So the first thing the left/axeldork wants to do is limit the damage by controlling the issue. Therefore they try and blurr it by claiming tea party. That’s what they did.
We still don’t know if he’s occupy or not. But we will find out one way or the other.

You are welcome. And thank you for being objective and being able to look at different opinions. Some people get very passionate about things at times in the heat of things on the internet, and it take a strong mind to keep a level head. I think you accomplished that.
