On KHOW radio here in Denver they just reported that the suspect’s mother is being interviewed by ABC news and is saying that “you have the right guy”, and she is flying to Denver as soon as possible. Sounds like she wasn’t surprised that this happened, for whatever that’s worth at the moment.

If the perp is non-white, the lame-stream media will certainly have to make him a “white” . . . you know, “white” Pakistani, “white” Iranian, “white” Iraqi, “white” Hispanic, etc. so they can report the story with no bias.

“never let a crisis go to waste’

Don’t worry they won’t. This is a huge opportunity for the left to change the narrative which Obama was losing on business to gun control. Of course the politics of the shooters will be huge as to which way it goes, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for Zero.

DU got very giddy for a while after they discoved a “Jim Holmes” that was a member of the Colorado Tea Party; someone figured out he was way too old.

People were desperately trying to connect the VA Tech shooter to Islam for months.

Personally I hate when people jump to rash conclusions in the first few hours after something like this happens and this is why I try to withhold making rash conclusions and wait to see what comes out.

The same sort of thing happens whenever there is a train derailment, industrial explosion, car running into a crowd, a random shooting by some lone psycho; unfortunately some immediately knee jerk that it must have been a Muslim terrorist or an illegal and when it comes out that is wasn’t, some even seem disappointed. It’s almost as if some people are looking for the next 9-11 and are disappointed when it doesn’t happen. Quite frankly this sort of thing makes conservatives look bad. OTOH, the knee jerk reactions from the left and from the pop psychologists are just as bad.

At the end of the day, the families of the people who died or those who are seriously injured and their families probably don’t care one wit whether it was some lone nut or a “terrorist”. Motivation, politics, race, mental illness, drug use, religion…at the end of the day it probably doesn’t matter much to the dead, injured, traumatized and their families.

A San Diego woman who identified herself as James Holmes' mother told ABC News she had awoken unaware of the shooting and had not yet been contacted by authorities. She immediately expressed concern that her son may have been involved.

"You have the right person," she said, apparently speaking on gut instinct. "I need to call the police... I need to fly out to Colorado."

This mother, apparently aware of something terribly wrong with her son, must have had some insight if she "immediately express concern her son may be involved."

Had she heard him verbalize this kind of intent?

What no middle name?

FBI is slippin these days.

It was about 3 years before we knew Barrack Hussein Obama had a middle name. If his middle name was abdullah, you'd never know it.

Not saying it is, mind you.

The government loves to waste money so they should fund a study to find out what in the H3LL is going on with people, especially the men, in this country. Is it something in the water? Are they being programmed by movies, video games? Did the parents not whip their A$$ enough? What? It’s like an epidemic.

To: Travis McGee Just came across this on Hot Air: A few weeks ago, a man by the username of ‘JamesHolmes154′ posted a thread on 9gag saying he was going to ‘shoot up’ a theater. He was clearly distressed and admitted he was suffering from PTSD. He said he was going to walk in and try to take as much lifes as possible. The whole 9gag community egged him on and give him tips on what to wear, etc. They give him tips on sharp-shooting and sent him messages on how to take as much lifes as possible. 9gag is a sick site and needs to be destroyed. 19 posted on Fri Jul 20 2012 09:23:21 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time) by SE Mom (Proud mom of an Iraq war combat vet) To: Travis McGee http://hotair.com/headlines/archives/2012/07/20/14-dead-in-colorado-theater-shooting/ A little over half-way down the page. 30 posted on Fri Jul 20 2012 09:37:47 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time) by SE Mom (Proud mom of an Iraq war combat vet) [ Post Reply | Private Reply | To 23 | View Replies | Report Abuse] http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2908609/posts

Excellent point.

All need to take a breath. A horrendous crime has been committed and thank the good work of the police that they caught the guy quickly, amongst the panic, confusion and bloodshed. Remarkable in itself. Let’s let them complete their investigation.

I agree. It's an interesting thing for a mom to say. It sounds like she knew he was nuts.

I wonder if she meant “you have the right person?” The other way sounds bizarre, even if her son was really crazy with violent tendencies i would expect a mother instinctively to be in denial.

Citing officials, NBC News’ Pete Williams reported that the shooter had three weapons — an assault-type rifle and two handguns. Holmes’ car has Tennessee plates but authorities believe he was living locally

Good find. I wonder if his mother was aware of that post or had heard him making statements to that effect. That would explain her remarks but also bring up questions as to whether she did anything to try to stop him (Baker Act him?) or alert authorities that he might be dangerous. Tough situation for a mother to be in though.

Yours is one of the most sensible posts I've seen today.

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.

Then, when facts start to emerge that contradict their assumptions, they begin to twist themselves into pretzels in order to be able to cling to their initial theories. "He must be a convert." "This must be a media/government conspiracy to suppress the truth."

Please.
