Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes appears dazed in court
Yahoo! ^ | By Jason Sickles,..

Posted on 07/23/2012 11:02:11 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

UPDATE: 11:30 a.m. ET: James Holmes, the suspect in the Colorado theater massacre, appeared in a Colorado courtroom on Monday. A judge advised Holmes of his Miranda rights, and that there was probable cause to continue to hold him without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Holmes, who was transported from from a holding cell to the courtroom via an underground tunnel, appeared dazed: his brow furrowed, his eyes opening and closing often. His hair was dyed red. He did not speak.

Seated in a jury box next public defender Tamara Brady, Holmes never looked towards a gallery that included about two dozen victims and victims advocates.

The preliminary hearing lasted for about 11 minutes. Holmes' next court appearance is July 30.

Working the insanity angle not that he really needs to.

Of course he’s insane so lets put him down.

More like the look of an ideologue who had whipped himself into a frenzy of zeal for “the cause” who is now coming back to reality and realizing what he has done.

It looked to me like the boy hasn’t been getting much sleep. I’ll bet he is hearing “noises” all night long.

Reality is setting in. He’s not in a video game; he’s not a superhero Vivian; he’s a nothing-nobody that will never see the outside of a jail cell again.

I think he thought he would not survive it and would not now be looking at the next 70 years of his life in jail.

Either an act or he is on quite a bit of a haldol like drug to keep him calm enough to sit through the proceeding. If it’s an act, it’s a good one

I believe that he very much intended to survive. It appears that the booby traps and such were set to tie up first responders with casualties so that there was little or no response at the theater.

Lives near Littleton, CO, does his butchery on the same day of the month as the Columbine massacre with a similar M.O.

My bet is that he was hoping for a higher body count than the Columbine guys....so now he is facing the needle as a FAILURE.

_______

You hit the nail on the head. His neighbors said that the stereo began blasting exactly at midnight. Someone was supposed to enter the apartment to turn down the stereo, set off the explosives and the theater was supposed to be the second tragedy of the day in that city. very Joker-esque.

Something I have noticed in cases like this. When you see the person after the fact, there is a look of dis-belief, or stunned if you like. Almost as if they don’t understand why they are there. I believe, and this comes from living almost 60 years and having seen it up close and personal, that it is clear proof that evil does exist. That for whatever reason some people open their soul to evil and it enters, causes unspeakable horror, then exits to leave that person to pay for the acts committed. Last thought, while I pray for those affected by this evil, I also feel so sorry for this mans parents. The child that brought them so much joy and hope now causes them pain beyond measure.

His appearance — especially the eyes, and more so on video — do look like he is on a stiff dose of an anti-psychotic drug but I don’t think it would be constitutional to force an injection prior to the judge seeing him in the hearing and ordering it.

anyone who did what he did is obviously psychotic

the questions are what to do with them?

and how to stop them?

none of this is new, one can read of crazed medieval marauders carrying off kids and butchering villages and whatnot...folks lived with that fear then same as now

just the tools are now a bit more expedient and a much larger target pool to take “it” out on

this is just the state of the human condition, folks crack up

awful

I think the insanity plea will be hard to sustain as evidence of several month of planning and preparation for this come out in trial.

“middle-of-the-road”

Please infer the translation correctly. Every liberal scumbag in Congress says they are “mainstream” and ‘middle of the road” and we are extremest. Most times middle of the road and mainstream are code for “bat-sh@t crazy leftist.”

Yep. And also probably sleep deprived.

It was barely discernible but you could almost make out his lips moving from time to time like he may have been mumbling. That and every once and a while his eyes would get big and dart around. I wonder if he’s hallucinating.

I wouldn’t bet on that.

Lets say he should be executed shortly with prejudice.

If he gets jail time one day he may walk.

He thinks he is real smart playing everyone for fools but he wasn’t expecting to be taken straight out of court AND HANGED IN THE PARKING LOT:

Oh wait that’s MY movie.

Nevermind, go back to the fools part.

Your explanation makes sense. His sudden, almost involuntary confession to police about the booby trapped apartment, followed by silence, struck me the same way.

I don’t feel one bit sorry for the parents. I think we will discover and rightfully so, that they played their part in all of this..
and had they not been in denial and holding up and covering for their Golden Boy every step of the way, the incident may never have happened..ie they could have stopped it.

You KNOW when something isn’t right with one of your kids. YOU KNOW. What you do about it, or in this case, not, measures the level of courage within you and speaks to the core of who you are as a human being, not as an enabling parent.

This is a human condition without Christ. Mr. Holmes had no protection from Satan. It’s a danger any unsaved person may face.

The bizarre thing about these people is that they claim to believe in evil, but they really don’t, because they see themselves as being in control of it and always able to turn away. But evil does exist, and it takes them over because they are stupid and arrogant enough to believe that they can just play their little game and then walk away if things get out of hand.

I don’t know about his parents. Maybe they realized he was insane, and maybe they were trying to get help for him, or maybe not. His mother wasn’t surprised that he was the killer when the police called her.
