New questions confronted the University of Colorado, Denver on Friday amid disclosures that a psychiatrist who treated theater shooting suspect James Holmes had warned campus police a month before the deadly assault that Holmes was dangerous and had homicidal thoughts.

I think you broke the code.
How did she know? Did he say he was a pro-life Christian?
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.
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.
most of them woulda been soaked before they knew what was going on and he lit the stream
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.
