The suspect was taken into custody, but no name was released. Oates said there's no evidence of any other attackers. There was also no immediate word of any motive.

The [unnamed] suspect spoke of "possible explosives in his residence. We are dealing with that potential threat," Oates said

Police were at the Denver-area apartment and had evacuated other residents of the building. Oates did not say whether any explosives had been found.

So why is the shooter's name being withheld from us ???? Was he a muslim terrorist ????

Yeah... interesting, isn't it. Remember when Loughner hosed down all those people in Tucson, the "media" frothed all over themselves in a rush to announce he was a "white male."

If memory serves, some of the initial reports
involved two terrorists.

Good God....I hope this wasn't some kind of whacko survivalist.Osama Obama’s campaign would have a field day with that.Actually they'll have a field day with it unless he's some sort of moslem psychopath.

Oh no! I just got up to this, sigh. As soon as I saw the “Colorado movie theater shooting” breaking news in my mail I thought: Aurora. Sure enough. So sad.

On another note, I am currently reading FReeper Matt Bracken’s Enemies Foreign and Domestic. When I turned on Fox News (which I never watch anymore, ugh) this morning because of this happening, Dr. Michael Baden was commenting: we have to track guns, we have to track bullets, we have to track tear gas canisters. Every time there is a situation like this, it is predictable.

Horrific. Absolutely horrific. The most I can do is offer prayers for the families and those who were hurt in the shooting.

I have read that a 6 year old girl was wounded and a 3 month old baby was either wounded or killed. This little girl should have never been at this PG-13 movie, and an infant, while obviously too young to watch the movie, still could be scared or disturbed by the loud noise of the movie, so the infant shouldn’t have been there either.

They would withhold his name to give cover to the media as they shape and pin the guilt by political association on the right.

If people don’t have his name, they can’t find the turd on the internet and dispute Dear Reader’s ‘narrative.’
