Dr. Lynne Fenton, who treated Holmes this spring, contacted several members of the BETA team in separate conversations. According to the university website, the BETA team consists of "key" staff members from various CU departments who have specific expertise in dealing with assessing potential threats on campus. And, sources say, officials at the University of Colorado never contacted Aurora police with Fentons concerns before the July 20 killings.
Then we find Holmes purchased the paramilitary rifle he used in the attack on June 7, and that some of these contacts may have occurred before June 7, meaning the university might well have had time to repot him to authorities and get him tagged so he couldn't have purchased the weapon. This, of course, doesn't even include what his family may well have know about him and the reports that weren't made but probably should have been.
Looks like the problem's nut control, not gun control.
Can anyone imagine a less effectual group than a “threat team” at a left wing university? Their idea of a threat is Chick Fil A.
It seems we have another leftist University failing to advise the appropriate government authorities that they have a person on their campus that could be dangerous.
CU sure looks like Penn State’s handling of the Sandusky coverup.
I don’t know how this entwines with a patiemts right to confidentiality, but certainly it shows that this person diodn’t do this on the spur of the moment.
Those killings were the result of cold-blooded planning and premeditation.
This man should get to meet his maker as soon a possible.
It would be an atrocity if he weren’t executed inside of a year.
Now some people feel that ,mentally ill people should not be executed. my feelings are exactly the opposite. If a person has killed and is crazy enough to kill again he should be gotten rid of as soon as possible. Why should we place prison guards and hospital orderlies at risk while imprisoning these killers?
My reading of this situation tells me that laws, regulations, and the fear of possible lawsuits probably got in the way of any action being taken here.
