Shooting suspect from San Diego
San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | 7/20/2012 | Aaron Burgin, Kristina Davis and Pauline Repard

Posted on 07/20/2012 2:34:02 PM PDT by South40

SAN DIEGO — A 24-year-old man suspected of firing into a crowded Colorado movie theater late Thursday, killing at least 12 and wounding 59 others, graduated from Westview High School in San Diego, near the Rancho Peñasquitos home where his parents still live.

Suspected shooter James Holmes graduated from the high school’s inaugural class in Torrey Highlands in 2006, then earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from the University of California, Riverside, school officials said.

Holmes enrolled at the University of Colorado Medical School as a neuroscience graduate student in June 2011 but voluntarily left the program last month and was in the process of withdrawing from the school, said Dan Meyers, a spokesman for the university. Meyers said he did not know what prompted Holmes to withdraw from the university.

James, we know you didn’t do this shooting. Somebody did it for you.

Probably all of those pointy-headed lefty professors that worked to get you your Phi Beta Kappa.

After all, we know conservatives can’t get a decent break in liberal education. So, you must have really scored high on the LIB meter.

Wonder what we’ll find in your apartment scribblings and posters?

Curious what the picture was. Media jackals surround house where suspect’s parents live - probably in search of any Tea Party or Republican affiliation to blame the attack on.

One can only hope that an out-of-control garbage truck happens to go right through the “media” area in front of the house.

If they did that in front of my house, no matter what the reason, I’d be in that car with the transmission in “reverse” and punch the gas pedal to the floor.

Me too. A more fun alternative would be to walk out to my van and ask them to move so that I can leave. When they pepper with questions, repeat the exact same words until they actually move. If they refuse after three requests, pull out the cell phone and call 911 for loiterers refusing to clear my driveway.

They should go outside and tell the reporters “Our son was a huge supporter of Obama and was excited about the upcoming election so he could vote for him and that Obama has made him the person he is today.” The news would back off in seconds.

The good news is that he is alive. It means that after some waterboarding we can find out what was going on.

I thought the exact same thing, but thought it was such an old reference nobody would get it.

They've got the "Bubble-Headed Bleach Blondes."

This is what we're calling freedom of the press nowadays?

The first amendment means media people can get paid to pile all of their s*** in front of someone's home and harass them mercilessly?

I already know more about this guy than I know about Obama. Is it not amazing how the lame-stream media can go out of their way to find out the background, history, profile, etc., of this guy, but cannot find the time or make the effort to find out anything about Barack Hussein Obama.

They should go out and tell the press that their son was an ardent Obama supporter and wanted to provide the Obama reelection campaign with a crisis so serious that it would not go to waste.

Yes, that was my first thought, the resemblance of the expression to that of the Arizona shooter. They both look to me like they were in states of hypnosis, or post-hypnotic suggestion. I’ll bet there is a cult behind this.

One wonders whether obamacare created a catch-twenty-two situation for the student to snap and drop out of grad school knowing that obama’s heavily regulated socialized medicine with its absurd penalties is leaving doctors with no alternatives but to give up their practices.

“The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery”

“The U. S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites three star Army general and decorated war hero Lieutenant General William G. (“Jerry”) Boykin (retired) from speaking at an event because he is an outspoken Christian”

“The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 to add a Stonehenge-like worship center for pagans, druids, witches and Wiccans”

They would evaporate. It'd be fun to watch the microphones and cameras abandoned in mid-air, clatter to the ground. LOL! Some temporary Obama bumper stickers and yard signage would be a nice touch, as well.

Good idea!

“.... If they refuse after three requests, pull out the cell phone and call 911 ...”
-
See, I am just so much more devious than you...
even before I tried to leave...
and even before I talked to them...

I would call 911 and tell them I have already asked them 3 times to move out of my way and that they have refused to move and that they have threatened me and that they were trespassing into my back yard and trying to open my back door to get in the house and that I think one of them might have a gun.

Correct, in the photo, they are not shown to be encroaching on private property. That being said, they are most certainly blocking a private driveway, which is illegal in many jurisdictions.

THANK you! I’ve been wishing someone would do this.
Pardon the pun, but what’s wrong with this picture?

Mind control, demonic possession, cult...I have no idea what could be behind these shooters (or people with some “sudden craving” for human flesh, for that matter).
I *don’t* think it’s drugs- unless a drug has been created to compel people to commit a very specific behavior. (Maybe there has been- who knows?)

What I’m saying is something’s very, very fishy about all of this.

I hope the police go in through the floor of his apartment or something to get in there and disarm things soon. This guy sounds smart enough to me to have put everything on a timer in case they did what they are doing IMO.

Just my opinion, but I hope some Feds reading this post and site do pass this possibility to the proper people in Colorado.
