AURORA MASSACRE SHOOTER Tries to Kill Himself in Jail Cell
TMZ ^ | 11/15/12 | TMZ Staff

Posted on 11/15/2012 11:24:42 AM PST by raccoonradio

James Holmes -- the shooter in the Aurora movie theater massacre -- was hospitalized after several "half-hearted" suicide attempts ... this according to law enforcement.

According to cops, Holmes ran headfirst into a jail cell wall on Tuesday ... and while he sustained injuries ... they were not life-threatening.

Holmes also reportedly stood on the bed in his cell and fell backwards ... in an apparent attempt to crack his skull open. He failed.

Holmes -- who killed 12 people and injured 58 more during his July 20 shooting rampage -- has since been released from the hospital.

Wikipedia on James Eagan Holmes:
>>Holmes’ lawyers filed an emergency motion on November 14, 2012 to delay a pre-trial hearing, citing an unspecified condition that has left him unable to appear in court. “As a result of developments over the past 24 hours, Mr. Holmes is in a condition that renders him unable to be present in court for tomorrow’s hearing,” They requested to delay the hearing, which they received. It was rescheduled for December. Evidently, Holmes made various suicide attempts referred to as “half-hearted” in days before the scheduled hearing on November 15.

The reason they don’t put toilet seats on a commode is to stop prisoners from beating themselves on the head to death.

A typical product of public education, prozac, and a college liberal arts degree.

Wasn’t he a Phd. candidate, too?

I think the consensus is that he’s faking insanity. The photo and the feeble “suicide” attempts don’t help.

That was post-graduate. I don’t know what his B.S. degree was.

He failed at neuro.

Nothing can hurt him more than his own conscience. I beg to differ. A few centuries roasting on Satan's spit would be a good start.

Cowardice on his part. Not sure if colorado has the death penalty, but if they do I’d like to see him tried, convicted, sentenced, and then have him helplessly watch the calendar count down to his execution date. I’m pretty sure he isn’t going to get anywhere on appeal.

The more I read about the shooting, the more I began to suspect there were other forces at work. This just adds to the pile of evidence, he’s acting like there’s something inside his skull that he can’t get rid of.

They should install a videorecorder in his cell for this. Would be a Youtube chart-topper fer shurr.

<><><><

LOL. Why include factual information when you can make up stuff to enable a boilerplate rant about the liberal arts?

Just in case you really don’t know, an undergraduate degree in neuroscience is not a liberal arts degree.

My BA in philosophy, now there’s a liberal arts degree.

Of course, I’ve never shot up a theatre full of people.

I’ve also never eaten at the public trough, never collected unemployment, never worked in the public sector and have been employed every day since I graduated from college in May of 1980.

All generalizations are false, including this one. Obviously.

I don’t see why FR members are SO F’IN sensitive!
Why must one take EVERYTHING personally??

As an engineer, I can only suggest a liberal like yourself reference positive feedback or catastrophic failure. It is OVER because of LIBERAL education and liberally “educated” people.

If the shoe fits, fine. If not, then DON’T TAKE EVERYTING PERSONALLY ! ! !

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph...
