Posted on 07/22/2012 4:17:09 PM PDT by nightlight7
An Arapahoe County Court judge has granted a request to seal the case against James Holmes, the 24-year-old shooter who killed 12 and wounded 50 during a screening last night of "The Dark Knight Rises."
The motion, filed in Arapahoe County court, asks for the records in the case to be sealed, including search warrants, affidavits, orders and the "case file."
... disclosure of the court records would be "contrary to public interest" and "could jeopardize the ongoing investigation."

Something is rotten in Denmark, kids.
Who didn’t know this was coming?
That seems rather un-American.
Ah yes! But the Zimmerman/Martin case must be debated and tried in the media.
I’m not saying... But I wouldn’t be at all surprised that this guy was primed and aimed by a third party just for the reactions they are getting.
Ib4 2nd Ammendment Conspiracy Theory du jour.
I doubt it would be “contrary to public interest” for the public to know more details about this crime. Such as, who else is involved, where did the killer get tear gas, and who financed everything?
Anyone know if this was done in the McVeigh case?
You ain't kidding.
Here's a link to info on the Arapahoe County Judges:
I noticed a Holmes among them, but since the murderer is from San Diego, he probably isn't related to the Judge.
It sure sounds like they are trying to hide something though.
Well, no I’m not.
You were too late.
This points to.............. a staged operation.
Especially the families of the victims.
It would certainly be contrary to public interest for the other suspects to have any clue about the investigation.
We tried to unearth as much as we could before it got shut down.
We have the important early info, and names to go on. We have a fairly decent expectation it won’t be repeated.
What all goes into a judge ‘sealing’ a case I don’t know.
Is there a difference between FL law and CO law? We seem to know almost everything that can be dug up on GZ.
Zimmerman may have been well within his rights to do what he did, but we know this guy wasn’t.
After awhile a person becomes pretty good at connecting the dots in a news story and with their personal knowledge. So yeah, it certainly points in that direction for me. In any case it certainly has a whiff of conspiracy.
Addendum to my 14: “...which their enablers in the media and government would only too quickly supply them with.”
> Anyone know if this was done in the McVeigh case?
Or 9/11, Waco, VA Tech, Ft. Hood... pick one:
List of massacres in the United States
Leaked so far about whether he was linked to: Tea Party, NRA, Limbaugh, GOP, right wing causes, and similar....none.
Leaked so far that he was a member of the democrates, OWS, lefties, former listener of air america or similar actions.....none BUT we damn well know if there were any linkage to the first group, it would have been blasted all over the news by now. So, by this order, I believe the left is burying for all time, or at least till the election, this guy was involved in some way with the lefties.
Too bad that list isn’t organized by presidential administration. I’m curious...
Is there a difference between FL law and CO law?”
I wonder if the fact that Florida has a Republican governor and Colorado’s governor is Democrat has anything to do with it? Lots of speculation going on so might as well add to it.
Is there a difference between FL law and CO law?
I know that CO law disarmed the populace in public so that this guy could do what he did. And yes, the theater chain was an accomplice in making itself a gun free zone. More like a defense free zone wasn’t it?
take a deep breath.
Maybe should be in breaking, even thought it ‘broke’ unknownst to us two days ago.
zero knows how to unseal a case, it was what put him where he is today.
“jeopardize the ongoing investigation”
Don’t worry, there was an NBC news scroll this morning that said the shooter “acted alone”.
Did they find out he voted for Obama?
We all want this done right, not a circus, not a bunch of lawyers yapping on the courthouse steps or websites compromising the trial by publishing every police report and bit of evidence before it gets to court.
There is a difference between keeping some information from the public due to an ongoing investigation, and “sealing” all information.
Secret investigations, which is what this amounts to now, indicates a possibility of scrubbing government culpability.
Holder and Ubama are so evil, that there is a distinct possibility that this is another of their schemes to "brainwash people into thinking about guns in an entirely different way."
I think the probability is at least 50/50.
It’s in the public interest to let law enforcement do its job and lock this perp up permanently. It’s not in the public interest to turn it into a circus like the O.J. trial or the Zimmerman case.
The public and the family will know all there is to know in due time. We want this done right, and our curiousity simply does not count.
What about Nancy Grace ugh she will be in a tizzy with those flared nostrils
This was sealed on the 20th. We’re just reading about it now.
Now obama's sealed records won't feel lonely anymore. Obama and Holmes are now united. They have so much in common except one is inside and the other is outside.
What on earth for? You've heard of Fast and Furious? You taking deep breaths over that?
Let her snort.
The purpose of this prosecution isn’t to give Grace (or any other blogger/broadcaster) material for their shows. They can find something else to yell about and line their pockets.
We want justice for the victims, and I’m all for letting the pros handle it. Again, I applaud this judge. Too bad he wasn’t on the bench for the O.J. circus.
His Mother oddly said ... you've got the right guy
We're told he was arrested and committed the crimes while in a mask and body armor ... so there are no 'eye witnesses'
We're told he told the police of the apartment being rigged with trip wires and explosive and so it was disarmed with out incident
We're told via leaks from the jailhouse to the mainstream media that he is delusional and spitting on his captors
now the case is sealed
Nothing to see here sheeple ... just move along
true. AND including the possibility that monkeys will fly out of my butt, too.
I wasn’t suspicious till this. Yes, something is rotten. Why can’t the public know? Hell, he lived. What next, suicide in his jail cell?
Holmes could be free as a bird in Kenya by now.
What, exactly, is the meaning of ‘seal’? Does it mean you can’t access what the prosecution has amassed? I.E., the FOIA is negated in the case?
I put nothing past them. Not after Fast & Furious.
Cover up what, Sherlock?
My trust in government is nil.
Great Britain had secret investigations and secret trials. We don’t do that in this nation for a reason: abuse of power is too often the result.
Oh I didn’t mean she would be upset about the sealing. I just meant in general she just drones on and on. In the Zimmerman case she just kept on and on about his guilt. I do not watch her show but when I would flip through the channels there she would be.
First of all, they have his computer now. The police chief said they were going to ‘talk’ to “everyone he ever knew throughout his entire life.” The fbi is on the case. And just like cho, jiverly voong, and loughner, you will never, ever see the dots connected...unless he was a rightwing critter...which he isn’t.
George Soros hates America. He funded Obama's campaign, illegally. He illegally funds Occupy Wall Street (OWS). This shooter is expected to be part of OWS. Obama doesn't want the negative attention during this election cycle.
