Probably a few Facebook “check-ins” from local hospitals too.

The media will go bonkers on the suspect - particularly if he meets any one of the following criteria:
White; Christian, Republican; Tea Party Member; Romney Supporter; NRA Member.

However, the media will snooze once more if he is: Illegally
in the U.S.; Middle Eastern or ME descent; Muslim; any other minority; an Obama Supporter; a Democrat; an Occupy Movement Member.

This certainly squelches his plans to use the name of the villian of the movie against Romney. Hopefully he does use this as a gun control push. Not exactly a winning issue for the left.

Not wanting to draw any real parallels, but the only contact with police Mohammed Atta had was ALSO a traffic ticket.
(Or actually, a POTENTIAL traffic ticket, since I think he got a pass on an offense)

Breitbart says the suspect is a REGISTERED DEMOCRAT.

Update: Fox News reports that the suspect has a California-issued social security number, as does the man in the documents obtained by Breitbart News--a significant correlation, assuming the sources are independent.

Furthermore, the James Holmes for whom records were obtained by Breitbart News registered as a Democrat on June 14, 2011. He registered from an address in La Plata County, Colorado, and his status is listed as "inactive."

The "Black Bloc", of which this lunatic MAY have been a part, is a far LEFT, very violent, anarchist movement.

From wiki, with links to sources at site...

"In 1986 Hamburg squatters mobilised following attacks on the Hafenstraße. A demonstration of 10,000 took to the streets surrounding at least 1,500 people in a black bloc. They carried a large banner saying "Build Revolutionary Dual Power!" At the end of the march, the black bloc then engaged in street fighting that forced the police to retreat. The next day 13 department stores in Hamburg were set alight, causing nearly $10 million in damage. Later that year, following the Chernobyl disaster, militant anti-nuclear activists used the tactic.

On 1 May 1987, a peaceful peoples fest in Berlin-Kreuzberg was attacked by West German police.[7] In consequence of the unprovoked attack, thousands of people attacked the police with rocks, bottles and Molotov cocktails. The riots became famous after the police had to completely pull out of the so called "SO 36" Neighborhood in Kreuzberg for several hours, and rioters looted shops together with residents.[8]

When Ronald Reagan came to Berlin in June 1987, he was met by around 50,000 demonstrators protesting against his Cold War policies. This included a black bloc of 3,000 people. A couple of months later, police intensified their harassment of the Hafenstraße squatters. In November 1987, the residents were joined by thousands of other autonomen and fortified their squat, built barricades in the streets and defended themselves against the police for nearly 24 hours. After this the city authorities legalised the squatters residence.

On 1 May 1988 [Communist May Day], radical left groups organised a May Day demonstration through Berlin-Kreuzberg, ending in riots even heavier than the year before. The police were attacked with steel balls fired by slingshots, stones, fireworks and Molotov cocktails. On 2 May, headline of the Berlin newspaper B.Z. was "Beirut?? Nein, das ist Berlin!" (Beirut?? No, it´s Berlin!). The riots finally became a tradition in Berlin-Kreuzberg and have recurred every 1 May since, but never as fatally as in the first two years.[9] When the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund met in Berlin in 1988, the autonomen hosted an international gathering of anti-capitalist activists. Numbering around 80,000, the protesters greatly outnumbered the police. Officials tried to maintain control by banning all demonstrations and attacking public assemblies. Nevertheless, there were riots and upmarket shopping areas were destroyed.[10]

In the period after the Berlin Wall, the German black bloc movement continued traditional riots such as May Day in Berlin-Kreuzberg, but with decreasing intensity. Their main focus became the struggle against the recurring popularity of Neo-Nazism in Germany. The "turn" came in June 2007, during the 33rd G8 summit. A black block of 2,000 people built barricades, set cars alight and attacked the police during a mass demonstration in Rostock.[11] 400 police officers were injured, and also about 500 demonstrators and activists. According to the German Verfassungsschutz, the weeks of organisation before the demonstration and the riots themselves were amounted to a revival for the militant left in Germany. Since the "Battle of Rostock", traditional "May Day Riots" after demonstrations every May 1 in Berlin, and since 2008 also in Hamburg, became more intense, and violence of the autonomen against police officers and political enemies at demonstrations of radical left groups have dramatically increased.[12]

If this guy is a certified head case, how then did he get the gun? Thought mental cases were prohibited from possesing firearms. So much for gun control.

Why do people like this prick have3 to go out and kill a lot of people that hasn’t done anything to him? since a person like this shooter seems pre-disposed to doing these kinds of atrocities, why not just point the gun to their own head and pull the trigger? It would solve their own problem and not ruin the lives of others. Prayers going out to those affected by this guy’s lunacy.

obtained guns illegally

Aha! He bought the guns from a Mexican who got them through Fast and Furious! Holder told the Mexican to sell them to Holmes, who they knew was crazy. They needed something to set him off, so the had a movie made that had a character named Bane and bad-mouthed OWS. This made Rush think about the link and he mention it on his show. This made Holmes go berserk. Now obama will get on TV and say it was Rush's fault and I hear he has signed an executive order banning ALL guns immediately. The National Guard is coming to your house shortly to collect all your weapons. Limbaugh will be arrested during the first half-hour of his show while he is on the air!

There, another wild-ass speculation to add to the huge pile aleady produced today. Didn't have any time to gather unrelated photos of random individuals since I wanted to be first to get this info out. Glad to be of help.

From your link:

As speculation mounts about the motive behind the mass shooting, one private investigator has said that Holmes may have been part of Occupy Wall Street's most violent faction Occupy Black Bloc.

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?

I don't think he is. He seems to be just trying to show how similiar the shooter was in appearance to them, and also mode of operation. Important to note is that the movie (Batman) portrays the "Occupy" movement in a bad light. The "Black Bloc" is a violent anarchist part of the OWS movement.

So you're admitting that this "private investigator" (whose website screams "ranting loon" btw) has NO ACTUAL EVIDENCE linking James Holmes to OWS in any way, shape, or form?

Yet another mass shooting crime by the mentally ill?

If he's Muslim, he's 'mentally ill' and ONLY represents himself. Even if he was screaming allah akbar... He's he's black - the story gets dropped. Period. Over. If he's a conservative, we all get painted with the broad brush of hatred and the New York Times runs retrospectives for the next 10 years.

I was listening to an urban contemporary radio station on the way in this morning, the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

They were claiming that the audience was majority black and that the shooter was white.

Looks like somebody was primed to run witht a Treyvon narrative.

Some actual new information:

“Holmes, originally of San Diego, Calif., was in Colorado pursuing a PhD, sources told ABC News. He was a student at the University of Colorado Denver Medical Campus but he withdrew in June.”

I’ll guess paranoid schizophrenia, as first onset is often at about this guy’s age.

Great explanation! That is two explanations. How about another one ... am thinking PR may not be the motive. Another explanation ... Since the zer0 was informed this morning, has hillary made the call to France and asked for cooperation for some reason? Maybe huma weiner knows what is taking place and shared some info from her family ties? Number three is doubtful. huma would keep quiet (imho). My guess is hillary would too. And there is the zer0 _resident. zer0 has already told us which side he is on. And the democRATS are chanting Four More Years. WOW!

You’re over-thinking this way too much.

The premiere is a media event to promote the movie.

What is the media going to constantly ask about at the premiere if they had it?

When there is an obvious, simple explanation for something, why bother developing an elaborate conspiracy theory?

Not sure that information would be released unless a friend of the perp or the perp himself tells us.

However, the media has already published more about this guy's background than than Obama's.

Anyone who has worked in a latenight club or restaurant will testify that the later it gets the darker. A movie theater worker would experience the same phenomenon. It's just the way it is.

As for political exploitation there will be many competing ones, including, "Let's all come together now and support ...me." Wicked.

The media and the DOJ, and Homeland inSecurity will pin the motivation of this murder on a group of people. They will do it early before anyone has any real information on the perp. They will target YOUR political ideology and your second amendment rights!

Because of this, we have to work to identify the associations and motives of the shooter, ASAP. You may not like it, but this is the world we live in and one side can not afford to pretend they are above it all and get themselves and each other pinned as domestic terrorists.

It is very important that Freepers and all conservatives work to pin down who this shooter is before Obama’s media lie that the shooter is a Tea Partier, travels around the world and becomes ‘fact.’

There are a lot of idealistic whiners on here working against the necessary business at hand. You are being one of them. Get real.

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.

I wouldn't be so quick to say so. Charles Starkweather, Howard Unruh, Carill Fugate, Melvin Collins...and that's just a brief list. True, there weren't as many, but it's not like they didn't exist.

With everything interconnected today by the media, we become aware of anything and (almost) everything in a matter of minutes. Very few things are 'local' anymore, which is why there seems to be a growing epidemic of violent crimes, even though - statistically - all violent crime (murder included) have been on downward trends since the early 90s.

You could make the argument that video games are 'programming' people, true. You could also make the argument that video games serve as a form of catharsis to release aggression.

But I suppose we won't know the true results of what today's popular culture will bring until today's children become older...so, probably not until the 2020s and the 2030s will the consequences be felt.

If something more worrisome (like America defaulting) hasn't occurred by then, that is. But alas.
