James, a member of Black Bloc, was merely venting. The innocents who were murdered were of a different race.

What’s odd is the police didn’t find his mom before she woke up and heard the news. He must be not talking at all, or heavily sedated and asleep.

Are they being programmed by movies, video games?

Yes they are. It is not done deliberately, but still it happens. Typical video game: Shoot people to get points. Shoot more people, get more points.

Now add to that the violent rap music that many young people listen to.

Now add to that the "I'm being persecuted" mentality so common today.

It's not guns. There were roughly as many guns in the population back in the 1950's. This never happened back in the 1950's.

Something has to be done to address this problem. It will take some hard thinking by our leaders. But I'm guessing they'll take the easy way out: blame guns.

The Blame game will start soon:

First they will Blame Guns

Then they will blame Video Games

Then they will Blame “Lack of security”

Then they will blame the Tea Party

Then they will blame whites

Then they will blame Christians...

They will blame everyone but the lone nut.

Obama needed his crisis, and now he has it. This treaty will flow through the Senate with little more than a peep.

Never mind that if two or three audience members were carrying that this would have ended quickly or may never have happened if the guy knew the likelihood of an armed audience.

“It absolutely drives me crazy (or perhaps, crazier) to see FReepers making assumptions when something like this happens, in order to fit their pet theories, particularly about Islamic terrorism.”

I second that. There is no room for ditto heads. Irrational thought is dangerous whether left or right. People need to realize that their perceptions bias and formulate the truth as they see it. In this time of turmoil, everyone needs to keep a level head and not fall into the blind posse mentality.

Don’t become an emotionally manipulated puppet! Anger clouds the clear thinking, causes us to surrender our individual authority to be manipulated, and blinds us from truth no matter the side we have selected.

We as a society today are falling into the same trap that made the Germans blindly follow their leader into justifying atrocities.

I agree. Too many Freepers these days suffer from kneejerk uninformed postings. A prime example was Romney’s response to the “monster” comment the other day. Suddenly he was pansy because he didn’t agree with the lady and then take it up a notch to “anti-Amercian socialist communist dictator monster”.

Romney did exactly the right thing, he handles it with class and ended up looking Presidential. If he followed some of the other Freeper advice, he would have looked like a moron and handed Obama a prime campaign commercial.

Freepers need to take 10+ seconds to think about what they are going to post, similar to when you are sending out a work email, and contemplate their words.

Actually the rise of video games and rap music coincides with a pretty drastic drop in violent crime rates overall from 1990 through today.

I disagree with some of you points, but I would like to add to them ‘the internet’. So many psycopaths get validated on the internet by faceless people either joking around with them or living through their threats. The internet has created a very hostile and provoking group of insane people.

I saw the movie last night...SPOILERS about the scene you mentioned........

Yes there is a scene where they drag the rich out of there homes and then they perform mock trials giving them the choice of either exile or death. The scene is very reminiscent of the scene in Schindler’s List with the clearing of the ghetto, when the Nazi’s dragged the Jews out into the streets while throwing their stuff out into the street. If you know that scene then this scene in Batman parallels it perfectly.

Trust me though, this movie does not portray the OWS crowd in a good light, one could say it makes them look like fools as the story unfolds.

President Barack Obama, who was notified of the shooting on Friday morning by his homeland security adviser, John Brennan, urged Americans to “stand together” with the people of Aurora in the hours and days to come.

“Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time,” Obama said in a statement.

“As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family,” he added.

This guy is sickening as hell!

Good Morning America must read DU because they just reported the same thing. ‘..they found a Jim Holmes in Colorado who is party of the Tea Party...’ It is all over Facebook now, I’ve seen at least a dozen posts about a ‘tea party type’. One recent one said: “It’s been reported several times he had ties to The Tea Party and how many people would you like that group to kill before we tie it to their hatred and violence?”

They set that story line quickly.

I feel sorry for this poor Jim Holmes who isn’t the shooter being tied to this.

That Youtube user claims to be 34 years old.

The suspect is a 24-year old.

Possibly a different James Holmes.

Odd how, when a gun control measure is in trouble, some sort of gun incident occurs to make it easier to pass?

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal law enforcement officials say the suspect in Friday’s deadly shooting in Colorado is James Holmes, a 24-year-old white American.

Holmes is in police custody, and the FBI says there is no indication that incident is tied to any terrorist groups.
