Sounds like a really well planned attack. Body armor, gasmasks and teargas. Plus maybe secondary devices in the parking lot, maybe to kill first responders.

No mention of gunmen’s names or ethnicity. Until further evidence is available, I’m going to go on the safe side and assume they’re “Amish.”

Usually best just to wait it out, no need to make guesses, we will know soon enough.

That nearby Gateway Highschool reports this breakdown on their students:

Native American 1%

Asian American 5%

African American 30%

Hispanic American 38%

Anglo American 26%

Which says nothing at all about the usual theater audience, and certainly nothing about the shooter(s).

There are over 100 Hispanic gangs in the area ~ odds are this is neither an Amish drive-by nor something involving Jihadis.

Would not surprise me, if that is the case, since I am just hearing about it now, it could be say “Mexican”. In other words, with the invasion of the illegals including those who belong to gangs.

Gang bangers usually target each other, irrespective who else might be around and it’s almost always sudden and unexpected.

This guy planned to murder innocents, for maximal casualties. It could be a loner-type, but the use of a car bomb suggests Jihadi.

The only thing that indicates, off-hand, a loner event is that the guy didn’t say, “Allahu Akhbar” before shooting, or at least it hasn’t been reported yet that happened.

That probably rules out a jihadist.

Oh so you have family connections via cousins. Good to know.

When you posted about that there are up to 100 Hispanic gangs, right away, the issue of the unguarded southern boarder comes to mine and the violence going on in Mexico.

This is so pathetic and tragic! My heart aches for these victims and their families. What/why. . .whom?

Sick, sick, sick. . .the 'one' who did not have a friend to see this movie with?

Or someone who sees 'Batman' as an American icon; and/or; a 'hate Hollywood' MO? (Then there is the thought of a large scale 'Trayvon Think'.) Pathetic, as well; that one's mind, can even ponder the 'political'.

Irrespective of details; this is 'mind reeling' and altogether, heart breaking. Prayers up, for each and all; who share this suffering. Prayers for us all and our Country.

Do not understand the 'tolerance' for 'Hispanic gangs'.

(In Atlanta; and elsewhere, no doubt; they were sending long-time, employed; honest workers, Fathers, Mothers, sons; 'home'. . .while they totally ignored the illegals on Buford Highway - with gang tatoos. Why not start first, with the threats; and worry about the 'problems' later? But of course; that is another issue per this thread.)

Or; maybe not; per your posting. . .

Batman movie being shown in three of the theaters in the multiplex simultaneously.

Incident occurred in theater No. 9.

Incident started during an action sequence.

Three weapons involved, one possibly stashed beforehand by gunman. Pistol, long gun, and one other weapon.

Some type of gas released, then gunman with a gas mask and body armor opened fire, from front of theater. People were choking on gas, pandemonium as people were realizing what was really happening.

Police were on scene to provide crowd control becasue of heavy crowds for midnight showing of Batman movie at Century 15 theaters in Aurora, CO.

Police took down suspect at his vehicle. Suspect is 24 years old, from north Aurora. Car has Tenn. license plates.

Suspect said he had an incendiary device in his car—that was recovered. His apartment now being searched and people nearby evacuated for their safety.

14 dead, 50 injured/wounded.

Three meedical centers involved in treating victims, foremost being Swedish Medical Center in Aurora.

No I! I'm going with "Mormons" after all, 155 years ago, a few of them were involved in the "Mountain Meadows Massacre" as we keep getting reminded by the handful of Hate Mitt and Mormon Freeps here.

No, couldn't be. Just heard someone from NYT's - or other Lib 'think tank' - offering that the violence in Mexico; was not at all likely to move into our country. . .

Whatever; whomever; this is a shock wave. First, of course; is the tragedy of it all.

They could very well be "Amish." And if they are...then this is a change in tactics for them concerning this country since, other than Hasan, they haven't done this as a terror tactic.

And since this would be a change...I would assume it is something else...like gangs or a lone nut job since so far in our history...this has been what it turned out to be...again...Ft Hood being the exception and his case was unique.

Got to remember that, that is the OPINION of the NYT.

Had been told by another poster that there are up to 100 Hispanic gangs in the area.

Overall, a tragic situation.

Once again 2nd amendment unconstitutional infringement allows 14 more people to be assassinated like fish in a barrel. We live in scary times; A lot of lunatics out there, a lot of religion of peace adherents, and the government insists we go out there armed only with spit.
