Fox News reporting 10 dead, dozens injured.

Many theaters across the country had midnight showings of the new Batman movie last night.

Given how openly negative towards the OWS movement Nolan’s film is: I already have a good, strong suspicion who the culprit(s) will ultimately turn out to be.

This was two shooters, with body armor, smoke grenades and all... not your spur of the moment thing.

According to FOX...2 shooters stood up the moment Batman appeared (one shooter in each of two theaters)...they had gas masks and protective gear...shot off some kind of gas...people, mostly teens, panicked and shooters just began randomly shooting. Right now 10-12 + deaths....many others in critical condition.

I was thinking an act of terrorism, gang violence, or crazy disaffected youths. Suspect in custody, we should have an idea soon.

Updated: Shooting(s) at the Century Theater near Aurora Towncenter...many listeners reporting a crazy scene with several dozen police on the scene and several possible injuries. If youre out tonight heading that way you’ll definitely want to head in a different direction. Definitely sending our prayers to anyone who may be hurt.

The DU and Kos boards are both full of people muttering darkly about how Nolan's portrayal of OWS "shouldn't be allowed to stand."

Just sayin'.

If true that does sound like terrorism though I guess there have been some organized attacks by crazies.

It sounds like there were police on hand, and they disrupted the shooting very quickly. Thank God they were there, otherwise these guys would have killed a lot more.

Sounds planned, with a definite target in mind.

Also guessing the perp in custody is a 22yo angry white boy.

And so it begins. The violence will grow exponentially the closer we get to November. It's all part of The Plan.

WTF... they're killing babies at Batman movies now?

Yet another incident proving that our country is collectively going stark raving mad.

On the police radio they described someone as a Hispanic male. Unfortunately I wasn’t paying close attention so I’m not sure if they were talking about the theater security or a suspect.

You got it. If anyone still is lacking in 2nd ammendment supplies, they better hurry the heck up and buy them up. If Obummer wins in November, it will be a full court press against the 2nd Ammendment on multiple fronts.

This is nothing like gang violence. It’s possible but it semms much more organized and terrorist like in execution. The OWS angle seems much more plausible.

Fox saying at least 20 bodies in theater mostly children or youths, not clear if that meant all deaths but he included the one baby on the list. A baby should not be at a midnight showing but that is trivial at this point.

“...Local media reports that two gunmen were involved in the rampage. An explosive device was set off during the shooting, injuring several people...”

Aurora PD reports 50 transported to local ER’s.

I’m wondering if there is any conncetion with the bus bombing in Bulgaria - some type of coordinated global spree. The suspect in the Bulgaria bombing DID use a Michigan drivers license. Pure speculation of course but that’s all we can do at this point.

Reported they have one person in custody.

It’s painful to listen to these news people find ways to talk for 59 minutes and report 1 minute of actual news every hour.

It was surreal to see 2 Fox babes appear on screen w long legs and mini skirts at 5 am but frankly one of them is doing a better job of interviewing witnesses. They arent showing them now and ought to re wardrobe them out of respect.

There's a scene in the film where one of Selina (Catwoman) Kyle's friends escorts her into what formerly a private property -- now taken over by the Bane-led OWS-type mob -- and proudly proclaims something to the effect of: "This is all the PEOPLE'S property, now!"

All of the 'Rat boards -- DU, Kos, Firedoglake, etc. -- are absolutely livid with Nolan, right now.

Again: if I'm wrong, then I'm wrong... BUT --
