That information was taken down by Channel 9. James Holmes is the culprit. Not clear yet on the internet how that person came to be blamed before it was taken down.

Some of the worst wild speculations seem to come at the start of a thread.

If you can jump in on the beginning, apparently that gives you some kind of childish props. I was here first, I was here first...

And if you add a wild speculation that fits many peoples’ pet theories about every incident that occurs, all the better.

It takes a little time before anything reliable comes out from such incidents. If you take a little time yourself to get some underlying facts before commenting, your own credibility will fare much better, no matter your POV.

People either don’t realize their credibility is at stake, or they don’t care if it is.

I can easily blame Moslems for a terrible event even if they actually have absolutely nothing to do with it.

This must be a joke, right? I'm not used to see that kind of idiocy on FR. I mean, some idiocy, yes, but nothing like that.

FOX (broke down and tuned in just to hear about the shooting) just said Hussein will be speaking in an hour (10 CDT). He obviously hasn’t learned from his past knee jerks to keep his mouth shut until the facts come out.

In that case, I am heading out to the grocery store at about that time. Don't want to see that POS jump in front of a mass of cameras and, without evidence, try to politicize another violent event.

So are you just going to randomly post the Facebook link to people named “James Holmes”? Particularly if they are not the same person and posted just 11 minutes ago?

So you have some people desperate to put the shooter in a particular category, and others who just randomly post people who are not connected.

Is he going to give some shout-outs first, or is that only when unarmed servicemembers are murdered for diversity?

And any violence that was linked to OWS - Chicago streets thuggery, or leftist extremism simply evaporates from their poor memory.

They only have room in their puny brains for hatred against their perceived opponents.
No concern for actual facts whatsoever.

The internet has created a very hostile and provoking group of insane people.


The internet or rap music or tv doesn’t create insane people.
Rather insane people gavitate towards,, or actively seek out, insane elements that exist within the internet or rap or tv or name it.
People who imitate, or identify with, whatever they see do not have very strong self identities.
Most have poor, or no, healthy male role models. Not to mention serious boundry issues.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/07/20/It-Begins-ABC-Ross-Stephanolpoulos-Point-to-Tea-Party-for-Dark-Knight-Shooting

“UPDATE: The James Holmes arrested at the Aurora theater was 24 years old and seems to be from Denver, CO, according to a Facebook profile (a similar Facebook profile linked by a local news reporter has not been confirmed as the suspect’s profile, either). There are many people with the name “James Holmes” in the area, and the James Homes on the Tea Party website could match a James Homes from Aurora, CO who is in his fifties and therefore does not fit the description of the suspect. More evidence that Ross, Stephanolpoulos and ABC rushed to blame the Tea Party without confirmation that the suspect is also the Tea Party member.”

Ok, here is some homework.

Please carefully list all of the evidence from the page you keep linking to that James Holmes is an OWS member.

Helpful hint: Random pictures of OWS people don’t count.

FOX just showed the father of the guy - he’s white. Now we know why Hussein is rushing to the cameras in a half hour.

FOX also say the guy has some sort of mental illness but high functioning. Lots of speculation with talking heads.

You said...

“It’s sad once you realize there are hundreds of thousands of people whose only interest in this whole incident is that the perpetrator be from the “right” ethnic group or have the “right” beliefs so they can start posting tirades on internet forums. And it’s certainly not just here; there are obviously just as many people on DU or other places desperately hoping it’s a Tea Party/Militia Member upset with illegal immigrants as there are people hoping it’s an American Muslim convert and Obama campaign contributor.”

Best post of the day. Unfortunately, you're right. Can't a horrible tragedy just be that...a horrible tragedy

Why Rush Limbaugh?

Rush has been going off about the villain in the Batman movie being named "Bane". He says it could be a Hollywood swipe at Romney (stretch). The left is saying the shooter could have been following Rush's lead.

In fact, his excellency has cancelled his appearances in Florida for today and is headed back to DC....probably to pontifficate on the TV this evening. He is probably POed this happened on friday as friday evenings are used for document dumps. While he may qualify as a dump, he will begin the drum beat for gun control...perhaps he signs that stupid UN treaty or some EO about carrying guns on fed property. This guy is a menace and is looking for something to boost his falling ratings.

What is the point of the pic of the guy breaking the window? Is Bill Warner saying this is Holmes? Where is his proof of that? Same with the guy he shows in the gas mask. Is he saying that guy is Holmes, too? What is his proof?

Warner says, "I would look at the possibility that James Holmes, DOB 12/12/1987, was caught up in the OWS movement..."

Warner's just another speculator. Maybe he is right but at this time, no helpful information coming from him, just sensationalism.

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...

Then you should be plenty crazy the next few days listening to everyone who knows zero about the incident seriously speculate it was Muslims. Or OWS. Or illegal immigrants. Or....

Sometimes people are just batshit nuts, people.

There is no such thing as a “firearms license” in this context.

“Why Rush Limbaugh?”

Because Bill Clinton blamed Rush for the Oklahoma City bombing and got away with it in the msm. His presidency was floundering (”I’m still relevant”, he’d whimpered), but the msm portrayed him as the “Leader” in that crisis, and he won a second term.

Sound familiar? I’ll bet Hillary was on the phone first thing this morning, coaching the dim-bulb in the White House. She doesn’t want to lose her gig as SOS.
