Remorseless mass-murder suspect James Holmes was locked up alone Saturday over fears that the self-proclaimed Joker would become a target for other inmates.
The man accused in the Colorado movie theater massacre was still behaving erratically on the day after his rampage at a midnight screening of The Dark Night Rises the last film in the Batman trilogy.
Lets just say he hasnt shown any remorse, a jail employee told the Daily News. He thinks hes acting in a movie.
A released inmate said Holmes behavior behind bars was increasingly irrational.
He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards, the inmate told The News. He's spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.
Holmes, 24, was also placed on suicide watch in solitary confinement before eating a jailhouse breakfast of grits and sausage, according to a cafeteria worker.
Two other just-released inmates said the concerns of Arapahoe Detention Center officials over Holmes life were well-founded.
All the inmates were talking about killing him, Wayne Medley, 24, said as he left the facility. Everyone was looking for an opportunity. Its all they could talk about.
Freed inmate Dima Danilov, 22, said the suspects face was covered with a red towel when he arrived at the jail about two hours after 12 people were killed and 58 wounded inside an Aurora, Colo., multiplex.
Holmes who had dyed his hair red was also wearing red clothing beneath the black body armor that terrified moviegoers saw when he opened fire early Friday morning, Danilov said.
Jail guards blacked out his windows with duct tape so no one could see him, said Danilov. He was cuffed in the back and had leg shackles. Six officers were walking him.
The deranged suspected killer, a former honors student and Ph.D. candidate, said nothing and walked slowly to his cell.
Danilov said that if Holmes was released into the general jail population, he wont live to see Mondays court appearance.
Holmes is due for his first court appearance on Monday morning. He could face the death penalty, if found mentally competent and convicted in the murder spree.
Cops returned Saturday for a second day to Holmes suburban Denver apartment, which was rigged with chemical and explosive booby-traps by its jailed tenant before his rampage.
Eleven of the victims shot during the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises remained in critical condition Saturday at Colorado hospitals.
According to NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly, the mass killer declared that he was the Joker, enemy of Batman after the massacre ended.
Holmes, who came to Colorado from California to continue his education, was armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remington 870 shotgun and two .40-caliber Glock handguns.
Leave him his belt, shoestrings and a long bit of rope fashioned in a noose.Guilty or mad, retribution is up to the Lord but there are no biblical rules against the power of suggestion.
Insanity Defense....Right out of Nicholson’s One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Any informal justice meted out upon the young miscreant will save the state many man hours and countless funds, as well as do the job that the timid justice system is afraid to do.
>>Lets just say he hasnt shown any remorse, a jail employee told the Daily News. He thinks hes acting in a movie. <<
Thank you so much, Jail Employee, for setting up that insanity plea that this murderer will use.
Heh heh heh ... I think it's actually sanctioned ... at least in one instance;
Where y'been ?
Just hangin' out, checkin up on your work
'Ja pick up on m'man, Job ?
Yeah ... so what?
Pretty cool, ain't he?
Yeah, but you're protectin' him
K ... you can do anything you want but kill him, OK ?
They could start with any random occutard. They are all one and the same.
Grits and sausage??? That’s cruel and unusual punishment!
You know how it goes.
They can always pull a Lee Harvey Oswald on him so that more elites, with their personal bodyguards, can go berserk and scream about gun control.
Put him in one of Bashar Assad’s many prisons...
6 Teh ayngles wented to seez Ceiling Cat, and Basement Cat wented two.7 Ceiling Cat axt Basement Cat, "Wher wuz u?" Basement Cat saied "Oh, hai. I'z wuz in ur urfs, wawking up and down uponz it."8 Teh Ceiling Cat sez "Has u seen mai servnt Job? He can has cheezburger cuz he laiks me."
Heh heh heh .. I kind'a like that.
Red and Black what could it mean?
I have my suspicions.
I wonder when did they see his parents started seeing his warning signs?
You see? That's why they're all in jail; can't keep their mouths shut.
From reports yesterday, the guns were recent (within 6 months) purchases and were purchased in the Denver/Aurora area.
His parents live in California. They may not have known of his recent activities.
You gotta be kidding me. That is food heaven. Now Cream of Wheat would be another matter all together.
