Skip to comments.James Holmes jailed in solitary: ĎAll the inmates were talking about killing himí
Posted on 07/21/2012 2:10:29 PM PDT by Mount Athos
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.
I never understood the insanity plea. Of course, he’s insane. Nobody in their right mind would do what he did. Hang him anyway.
To paraphrase Dennis Miller: He’s crazy, so put him in a clown suit and then fry him.
He was never in any danger of going into general population.
You got it.
No proof as yet but time will tell.
Eventually he’ll talk, his ego will demand it.
Can we have a bunch of shrinks pick him apart very slowly first?
” Many a Southerner would consider that a gracious last meal prior to execution”
No bacon? Jail is a bitch!
In teh naemz of Ceiling Cat, Happy Cat, and Hovercat, amenz and kthxbai.
"A SUV parked in the home's driveway had a sticker on the back window that said, "TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS," the name of a nonprofit "dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide."
1. Any actual evidence this guy was an OWS idiot?
2. Are you suggesting that the inmates should go around killing OWS idiots?
What is it?
No bacon? Jail is a bitch!
No bacon for your last meal. It's bad for you, you know.
Lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
A FReeper noticed the Equality symbol on the car, the blue rectangle with the yellow equal sign.
Hope he gets the Dahlmer welcome wagon and save the taxpayers the cost of feeding the POS, years of public-funded appeals, and the added grief and anguish to families of the victims when the POS is eventually released (for “good behavior”) by some bleeding heart LIEberal judge or parole board.
He probably will and that's a good reason to keep him alive now.
Perhaps when the explosives disposal teams get finished, assuming that they are successful without destroying everything in his apartment, information on how and from whom he got the funds to buy large quantities of firearms, ammunition and other stuff will be found. It might be useful to question him about that. Was he, as the "news" says, acting alone? If not, for whom, why and to what end?
LOL shreeks ovah heer, cuz mah gospill boat iz floted!
I think that prison should have a good, all-American game of baseball this weekend, with Spittin’ Jimmie out there with the rest of the prison population. The guards should make sure there are plenty of bats. Cleats on the shoes, too, we don’t want anyone twisting an ankle while rounding second.
Never happen. The meticulous planning including booby trapping his apartment will negate insanity. He was fully cognizant of his actions.
He wasn’t acting crazy, he IS crazy. His mother knew immediately that he was the shooter, and I’m sure a lot of other people weren’t surprised.
Virtually all of our recent mass murderers have been under treatment for mental illness, or were known by their families to be mentally ill, and in many cases the families had tried to get help and it was refused.
This all dates back to the 1960s and the Langian (radical left wing) theory that only the mad were truly sane, because they recognized the horrors of capitalism. We need a new mental health paradigm.
Always said we outsourced the wrong jobs to China! We should contract with Chinatotend our prisoners under contract in Chinese Prisons! If You are thrown into a Chinese Prison, You will not live longer than one month, two at the most unless You have Family and Friends bribing the Guards and bringing You FOOD daily!Bet after a couple on monnths and the word drifting back to our urban Cesspools, Crimes would drop off dramatically!
That’s not the standard. It’s whether you knew and acknowledged that what you were doing was wrong,and he clearly didn’t. Of course, neither do Muslims, which makes me think we should define Islam as mental illness...
I hope you're kidding. If you really have to think about whether inmates should go around killing people because they hold different political beliefs than you (even if those political beliefs are vile and idiotic), that's sickening.
Probably find cash and checks directly sent to him by Obama, Soros, Pelosi and Reid and of course Eric Holder!
For them, he provides the perfect reason to confiscate all of Our Firearms! This is better for them than “FAST & FURIOUS!”
And the guards will sell your organs on the Internet!
The rock group RUSH just came out with a new album a few weeks ago - a song called “The Anarchist” is on it. Sounds like the lyrics might capture this anarchist attitude pretty well.
The Anarchist, RUSH - Clockwork Angels Album, 2012
Will there be world enough and time for me to sing that song?
A voice so silent for so long
For all those years I had to get along,
They told me I was wrong
I never wanted to belong - I was so strong
I lack their smiles and diamonds; I lack their happiness and love
I envy them for all those things, I never got my fair share of
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black
The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage
The things I’ve always been denied
An early promise that somehow died
A missing part of me that grows around me like a cage
In all your science of the mind, seeking blind through flesh and bone
Find the blood inside this stone
What I know, I’ve never shown; what I feel, I’ve always known
I plan my vengeance on my own - and I was always alone
Oh - They tried to get me
Oh - they’ll never forget me.
Is there a difference in being insane and just plain evil and hated filled?
