On TV they’re saying a baby was shot at very close range and killed.

Seems to be an isolated incident, nothing anywhere else.

Explosive devices in cars outside the event sounds like the al queda tactic of setting off bombs after initial attack, however it could be copied.

A police gang unit is present on the scene per Fox. Shooting of the baby so horrible.

On Aurora police scanner: comment that they have
50 patients in EDs .. I assume that’s emergency
departments, but I’m not sure.

Police chief is due to speak in a bit.

I think I also heard these savages were dressed in special
gear like bulletproof vests and masks. Imagine the horror
inside those theaters .. they’re saying each was in a
different theater in the same complex. It’s beyond
horrific .. those poor souls. Sounds like another
Columbine copycat?

Police chief up in a matter of minutes...
ABC is now covering, in addition to FNC, CNN and
MSNBC.

FNC was the ONLY news station reporting on this
for at least 30 minutes.

NBC - had guy who spoke to a witness.

Witness told fellow the murderer was dressed in all black,
vest, goggles .. total attack gear.

Reporting 10 dead, 39 injured.

Witnesses saying multiple shots .. likely automatic
weapons.

People were dressed up in the movie theme, so it wasn’t
unusual for the event, but then this guy rose up and
began the massacre. May the monsters rot ..

**Update: FNC reporting 14 dead, injured list could rise.

God rest the souls of the innocent just out at a movie ..
how can families ever heal from terror like this. Lord, help them.

Suspect volunteered he has explosives in his home.

Since this thread seems to be the one getting all the traffic - what the HECK is up with FR time stamps? I’m making this post at approximately 5:30AM EDT. Accurate timekeeping is CRITICAL for a news discussion and making site.

Either a muzzie dog or a lefty scumbag. This movie struck a nerve with OWS types. And muzzies just enjoy killing.

If you would, please be patient. The site was off for about
12 hrs due to server issues until about late morning Thurs.
We’re very grateful it’s back and working well. I’m sure the
clock issue will be corrected as soon as the major system
functions are stabilized to the owner’s satisfaction. Thanks.

I can already see the wheels in Chris Matthews little brain spinning on how to tie this event to the TEA party somehow....

Hopefully the media will show a little restraint in the accusations they toss out from their feeble minds...

We need a clear identification of the shooter(s) and their linkages. The FBI is already out with their “no link to terrorism” statement. This is the type of incident that can and will be used to further political agendas and it will be hard to get the truth from the agenda reports.

According to CNN the youngest victim is 6 years old. Not a baby or toddler... Still awful of course, but may have been inaccurately reported.

The left wing media doesn't need “linkage” or even facts...

They simply will leave an impression or an supposition and their hoards of mindless drones will run with it....

That is an excellent point, Leni. That baby should have been in bed. And aside from the hour, movies today are really too loud for little children.
