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."

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.
“The public and the family will know all there is to know in due time.”
Tell it to the Terry and Zapata families. Oh, and do we yet know all there is to know about Oklahoma City? How about Waco and Ruby Ridge?
And Obama was the one who said "Bring a Gun".
Me thinks this is another Ted Kazinski type. Of course, Ted's brother knew for years.
Does James have any siblings?? I don't think anyone has brought it up and I'm not sure why.
That is a presumption that is completely unwarranted - particularly if there is any third-party involvement in this crime.
There are always a large number of false leads in a serious conspiracy crime and innocent people will all too easily be targeted by lynch mobs or vigilantes based on incorrect data. It is probably best if the police keep their working lists confidential for some time to come.
However, a scheduled release of verified information had better be part of the plan for the follow-on investigation into the massacre.
If Obama and Holder can give weapons to Mexican drug cartels, maybe thousands of weapons, knowing full well Mexican, and possibly American citizens would be murdered with them, it would be NO problem for them to pull a stunt like this. Damn sure wouldn’t be ethics preventing it.
You do realize that every case you mentioned was a federal case?
As I understand it, this investigation is led by local law enforcement. Local. Boots on the ground, not in an office in Washington.
Give these guys some credit. I think they can handle it, and better without a nation full of noses in their business.
It took 19 hours to tell the families that their loved ones had been killed.
Remember how well the Jon Benet Ramsey case went?
What is it about that state?
Somebody in OWS black bloc knows who recruited him.
He has a sister.
I saw an interview with a friend of hers imbedded in an article on Breitbart.
the words, Lets roll, which authorities believe was a signal to the other passengers to confront the terrorist hijackers. In one hour, a transformation occurred among the passengers—athletes, business people and parents—from sh...eep to sheepdogs and together they fought the wolves, ultimately saving an unknown number of lives on the ground.
This is what our leaders ought to be telling America instead of the same ole “I’m so sorry for your loss “ crap we hear evey damn stinikin time. We need to instill in our youth and in our Citizens the mental attitude of...ATTACK.
If I were Judge and Jury I would seal Mr. Holmes , in a casket.
