Colorado Shooter's Behavior "doesn't add up" ^

Posted on 07/21/2012 9:09:14 PM PDT by truthfinder9

His behavior doesn't add up

His behavior already reveals stark inconsistencies that question the mainstream explanation of events. For example, he opened fire on innocent people but then calmly surrendered to police without resistance. This is not consistent with the idea of "killing everyone."

Furthermore, he then admitted to police that his apartment was booby-trapped with explosives. If you were really an evil-minded Joker trying to kill people (including cops), why would you warn them about the booby trap in advance? It doesn't add up.

"Holmes was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, police said, adding he didn't resist when he was arrested," reports a local CBS news affiliate.

"After his arrest, Holmes told police about 'possible explosives in his residence,' Oates said. When police searched his apartment, they discovered it was booby-trapped and evacuated surrounding buildings, police said. Oates said bomb technicians are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material in the third-floor apartment. He said police could be there some time."

None of this checks out. If you're a killer bent on causing mayhem, why tell the police about your surprise bomb waiting for them back at your apartment?

Holmes was clearly provided with exotic gear...

I used to let a Schizophrenic split firewood at my campground to blow off steam. He found it therapeutic. One day, he came in my office with his axe and the voices were telling him that he had to kill somebody. He had not been taking his meds. Considering that I was the only one available and unable to get past him, I sure did some fast talking. I will never forget the look in his eyes. Distracting him by talking about his favorite music group eventually worked. I think the fact that I knew a little about Jim Morrison and the Doors saved my life that day. He was a big guy and I'm sure he had the strength of three at the time. Needless to say, that was the end of his firewood chopping days at my place. He looked positively possessed.

I know from personal experience with a co-worker that they can be reported by the family, diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses & be returned to the workplace or school on heavy doses of prescribed medication. The current culture in the mental health professions is to reintegrate very ill people into work and school, on the theory that it helps them “heal.”

The doctors will tell you that the best predictor of future violence is past violence. That’s their excuse for doing nothing except prescribing massive doses of drugs with serious side effects. With AZ, VA Tech, and now CO - people knew the person was unstable. There was no dry run. They all went from no attacks to mass murder.

I saw Dr. Keith Ablow give a great interview on O’Reilly. He said that he
will commit people, but many doctors won’t. Even then, I question how long they would remain committed. The perceived answer is the drugs, but who’s to say they don’t cause individuals to become violent.

Could this mass murderer be an Obama fan?

One look at his picture tells you that.

He planned for the apartment to go up first, drawing the police and fire in droves, just like any city, meanwhile he is hitting the theater across town.

Just like millions of other students- credit cards or maybe even identity theft.

The shooter has been implicated as a member of Occupy Wall Street’s Black Bloc division. Here is an article which details what they know about him so far:

Looks like less likely schizophrenic, more likely Occupy Wall Street Black Bloc member. Google it.

“Did you see my response in post 67 - I do understand now.”

Yes. I saw it. My reference to “The Kingdom” was the use of one event to draw in others to a more serious one.

Yes. It’s worth watching. The fact that this occurred at the very beginning of Ramadan is interesting, too.

There are at least 150 people who had a close friend or relative injured or killed by this guy. A threatening phone call or two wouldn’t seem all that unexpected ~ of course there are those who want Holmes out on the street!

Try this thought ~ in his delusion he imagined the audience would simply sit there while he shot them all.

Turns out real people don't act that way so they ran away as best they could.

This is consistent with the sort of static thinking exhibited by many leftists and Democrat politicians, and by environmental whackos. They cannot think in dynamic terms ~ so the people they 'help' are always poor, the rich are always rich, as the ocean rises the people stand there and drown, ..... and so on. There are numerous examples.

Some rambling blog posts and a few poorly put together YouTube videos isn’t exactly what I would call conclusive evidence. And that picture of that OWS protester being arrested in NYC doesn’t look anything like Holmes. YMMV.

The 'he comes back' part wasn't in the eyewitness' story. What came back was James Holmes dressed like a Star Wars stormtrooper with a gas mask, and carrying firearms and tossing tear gas grenades.

Likely James was the dude sitting next to the witness initially ~

The Black Bloc crew at the Seattle WTO riot were all very well equipped, curiously so.

Obama wants a civilian security force, just as well equipped as the military.

When Obama and Hillary start collecting guns, the shooting will start. Just what our first Muslim President needs to declare martial law and start rounding up radicals. Anything is on the table for the Muslim traitor.
