And their ‘solution’ will be to grow their unaccountable bureaucracy with even more taxpayer money. Because they care.. and the brain dead will roll right over.

This guy was being treated by a gubmint psych, being given psychotrophic drugs and was being hypnotized and brainwashed to do what he did by this obammy gubmint.
Just like many other mass murderers
All for an agenda.
Take the peoples guns and make them ALL subjects

The Grabby Giffords, Aurora and Newtown shootings had to occur in order for the “progressive” commie ‘RATS to be able to convince their low information voter types to accept a gun confiscation scheme by the Obama regime.

The earlier reports were just DNC new outlet reports , these are court documents:

“Court documents made public Thursday revealed Dr. Lynne Fenton also told a campus police officer in June that the shooting suspect had threatened and intimidated her.”

I'm not too sure what the university could do with that information. Commit him? Not likely. Send him to jail? He hadn't committed a crime.

Sounds like looking for scapegoats to me. May a thousand lawsuits bloom.

She's trying to cover her a**.

A campus police officer?? She should have reported it to LE. I think she's lying like crazy. They are required to report something like this.

Wait a minute here...A head psychiatrist on a major university campus call the university cops and tells them of these threats and intimidation and nothing is done?

Days later the same guy blows away a dozen people and injures dozens of others?

It begs the question:

If the University is paying hundreds of thousands for a psychiatry department and having top end psychiatrist on site ...What is the point if nothing is done or followed up?

If they have sworn law enforcement officers hired by that college...that is the LE agency she reports to...its their jurisdiction. If she goes to another LE agency... they will tell her to report to the campus police.

She went to the correct law enforcement agency

I still think she’s lying through her teeth...and that she only mentioned Holmes casually.

Possibly.... universities are famous for trying to cover things up.

The point is, it makes people "feel" good. That IS it in a nutshell.

So the government screwed up and passed a bunch of laws taking our freedom to cover up their screw up?

Bingo and this will just be part of the basis for the epic lawsuit against the State of Colorado.

The victims and their families will go after them with vengeance...

They save the real action to use against conservative students who exhibit even deadlier delusions of Freedom.

What if this were a non-gun crime?

What if a shrink knows someone has a drinking problem and they kill someone while drunk driving? Do they try to take cars away from sober drivers? Do they restrict car sales? Does the shrink face charges for not stopping the drunk driver? I will bet there are far, far more cases like this than there are of patients who kill with guns.

Well, they did disable his access card after she reported him... so they did “something.”

I was thinking kind of along those lines. Maybe not covering things up, but handling it “internally,” making people attend classes, revoking access, that kind of thing. You have the Penn State situation - revoke access, Rutgers - attend sensitivity training, and here - revoke access.

This circling the wagons around people put into positions of authority happens all over, even in private industry. We promote someone to management; if they aren’t suited for that role, we will do everything in our power to discredit their accusers, otherwise we have to accept responsibility for a bad decision.

That was one of the lies they caught...They disabled his card because he resigned/withdrew from the school.

> because the STATE didn’t act to prevent this tragedy...

Exactly what could the state have done that wouldn’t be yet another violation of constitutionally protected freedoms?

The correct response is to allow people to carry weapons to defend themselves. Just a few people with firearms in that theater would have been able to minimize the carnage, if not stop it altogether. Same for all the other mass shootings.

I think that is a conflicting story.

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_22962484/cu-says-james-holmes-not-blocked-from-campus.html

On the one hand, you have someone from campus police saying they did disable his access card because of the reported threats to the psychiatrist, on the other hand you have campus administration saying that isn’t true, that they removed his access after he withdrew from the program.

And they might be having a semantics disagreement too. CU admin is saying that they didn’t ban him from campus. Removing key card access is not the same as banning from campus. Campuses are wide open to anyone to access, but the key card gave access to entering buildings after they are closed to the regular public or other restricted areas.

Why didn’t the shrink Baker-ize him (i.e., get him locked up)? He warned the university. Hah.

Funny you mention that. I was almost fired twice for doing exactly that. I needed my job so I kept my mouth shut. Took a while to prove me correct. And no, there was no pat on the back....not that I expected one. Instead they just bad mouthed her.
