CBS New York/AP ^ | July 20, 2012

Posted on 07/20/2012 12:30:23 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the gunman suspected of attacking a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colorado resembled Batman’s arch-villain “The Joker” at the time of the shocking attack.

“We have some information, most of it is public. It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was ‘The Joker,’ obviously the ‘enemy’ of Batman,” Kelly said at a news conference after noon.

Well the police commissioner of Gotham should know, for sure.

I thought this was a spoof when I read the headline.

You know that a man is a certifiable psychopath when even his own mother knows right away that he’s guilty of something like this. She didn’t even waste time trying to deny it.

Yep nuttier than most Leftists actually. I’m perplexed that no one mentions that he acted out at this venue specifically and what that should inform us. Obviously this is a dark and violent fantasy film franchise and disordered minds are prone to getting swept up in it. This should be the focus, IMO, not inanimate objects-guns. There are other ways to commit mass murder, and someone like this would find a way. A disarmed and helpless society will always be at their mercy. It’s not hard.

I been at work all day barely following this. Tell me; Has the MSM blamed this on A Republican yet or the Tea party or Bush or Romney? Need I even guess? It’s predictable as sunrise and sunset so I know they have

looks like the local press looked him in search of soundbyte. Of course, he's the sort who happily obliges such requests.

Yes, of course.

George Stephie-noplois at ABC blamed an innocent Tea Partier.

But they have since apologized. So that makes it all right.

NOT!

The Joker? The word Joker starts with the letter J, which rhymes with Ray, which begins with the letter R. “R” for Romney or Republican. Coincidence?

Yes, Brian Ross at ABC News is being savaged on Twitter. Apparently he did not bother to confirm a thing before falsely reporting this guy was a Tea Party member. Apparently there is a Jim Holmes in CO who is a Tea Party member but it is not the shooter.

It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was ‘The Joker,’...Kelly said at a news conference after noon.

Sounds like about one of every 10 people you see on the street in the East Village.

Just the other day I saw a couple in their 80's walking down Madison Avenue on a Sunday eve. Very conservatively dressed. The lady had stark purple hair and looked at me like I had the problem.

Yep, ABC did right out of the box. Check Breitbart.com or the FR sidebar, it’s there. I hope the guy sues ABC big time.

abc “kneejerked” and pinned it on Limbaugh and the Taxed Enough Already Party before the gun smoke had even dissipated. They have “corrected” that story now though.

No....friend, not East Village people, more like “Occupy Wall Street” anarchist, just like a son that Barack Hussein Obama would love and cherish. Wake up America, all of you, your freedom and liberty are passing away, right under your own noses!!!

If they would hang these criminals in a public execution, it would certainly put a damper on the enthusiasm for becoming famous by means of a dramatic crime. I don’t care if they are crazy. Execute them for all to see.
