‘Dark Knight’ massacre suspect wants to know how the movie ended
Dailey News ^ | 07/25/2012 | By Matthew Lysiak

Posted on 07/25/2012 1:33:44 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

James Holmes, accused of killing a dozen people at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” wants to know how the film ended.

“Did you see the movie?” a creepy-sounding Holmes asked a stunned jail worker during a bizarre exchange Tuesday. “How does it end?”

Holmes, his eyes glazed and his voice flat, repeated the question when the worker ignored him, according to another jail employee who witnessed the incident in the infirmary.

Holmes, a 24-year-old ex-honor student, “was trying to look like he was sincerely curious,” the witness recounted to the Daily News.

“Like he had no idea why there was anything wrong with what he was saying. It was sick ... I think he’s trying real hard to act crazy.”

We know how his story will end. A 3 year trial process followed by endless appeals and perhaps 16 years before he is finally executed.

If he DID NOT DO what he did in the first place, he would know how it ended.

"It was sick ... I think he’s trying real hard to act crazy.”

This psycho is crazy but he is also putting on a lot of craziness to avoid the death penalty. This country is so stupid we refuse to try and execute crazy killers. We send them to a prison hospital where the shrinks can make millions off "treating" him. We only execute the non-crazy killers

Insanity defenses are a huge industry with at least a few hundred thousand leeches making a living off them

I wonder if he’d settle for learning how the pencil trick works. Because I’m sure one of the other guys in the jail would be glad to show him. Maybe not with an actual sharpened pencil, of course, but they can improvise.

That’s even wackier.

It would have made “sense” (in his warped world) to know what was going to happen during the movie, because didn’t he mount the stage during one of the film’s chaotic firefights? What if the film had had none? Wouldn’t he have been disappointed?

Ah sure, you go to a Batman movie armed to the teeth and wait for just the right scene.

Pathetic.

When someone is caught red handed, as this perp was, justice should be swift. Witnesses should be called in one by one to identify him, and that being done, he should be stood up in front of a wall and shot until dead.

Any family members or members of the community who feel victimized by the rabid dog, should be allowed to participate.

No lengthy trial. No millions of dollars in government expenditures. No years worth of talk show or entertainment industry exploitation, or Leftist bleeding hearts... There wouldn’t be groups of people standing out-side jails and prisons pleading for him not to be mistreated. Prison guards wouldn’t have to dodge bags of defecation or urine, because there isn’t much they can do about that, when a guy is on death row.

And then there should be a ban on ever making any sort of money off the story. Anyone trying to do so would be sent to prison for five to ten.

These guys want attention. Give them none. Don’t even put the name out there. Call him “the perp”. Label every guy who does something like this, “the perp”. When you’ve got 25 “the perps” in 25 years, nobody will get the credit they think they so richly deserve. No movies will glorify them for all eternity. Give these guys nothing, but full anonymity for having done these terrible acts.

Shoot the guy. Cart his ass out to the middle of the desert. Strip him naked. And let nature take care of the rest. Guard the body for three to six months. When only bones and dirt are left, leave him there so the next person will know what’s coming for them.

And frankly, if someone wants to eliminate the part about shooting the guy, and just wants to skip ahead to staking him out in the desert, I’m willing to take it under advisement.

Having no objections, case closed.

Ok....tin foil hat time...

Suppose in his studies of “neuroscience”, that the government recruited him, and set up this whole scenario, in order to push their anti-gun BS?

Suppose they used some kind of mind control to get him to act out and go on the rampage he did? Since witnesses say he took a phone call and went out the side exit of the theater...maybe it triggered him into some kind of mode...whereby he could act out all he did. And, maybe that’s why he was waiting by his car when the police came, and why he gave up what was going on at his apt...maybe he snapped out of the trance and realized what happened?

I mean, who is to say, this guy wasn’t being mind controlled? Who is to say, he wasn’t called with a specific word to trigger him into action?

Hard to say...could be the guy is just a nut and has serious psychological problems. I mean, did they even check to see if/what drugs he may have been on? Watching him in the court room Monday, and you’d think he was either completely stoned, or his mind was seriously scrambled.

But the coincidence of the timing of his massacre and the push for the UN gun treaty....AND knowing this government IS corrupt and uses EVERY crisis (generated by them or not) for THEIR agenda...? And who the heck knows what lies the MSM is telling and/or what they aren’t telling behind all this?

Sometimes the line between conspiracy and truth, is really hard to see. Especially in today’s world....But I can’t help but think this guy is a patsy for someone...something. I also question if it was him in the theater, who took the phone call and got up and opened the exit door...wouldn’t someone remember the red hair?

Just giving drugs to a nut does not usually end up with the nut committing a massacre in a movie house. There would have to be more content than that to any instigator’s contact with the shooter to explain why the shooter’s violence took the form it did. If instigated. He could well have fried his own brain and thought of it himself, for all we know.

I think that’s an admirable suggestion. Let me explain why I don’t like the idea.

1. The perps get notoriety
2. It gives other idiots ideas
3. The grieving families have the despicable story out there being told in disgusting intimate full (HD Video) detail, replayed for decades on end - They would be reminded constantly of their loss every time the movie was advertised, people talked about it, or people knowing you had a relative killed there, would want to ask you how it all affected you (for the 10,993rd time).
4. People make a profit off the process
5. I couldn’t take one dime off something related to my relative’s death
6. No amount of money would be worth my loved one’s death
7. No amount of money would make their loss less painful

Take care...

Executed? No way. Reagan’s assassin is taking weekend visits outside.

This guy will be found mentally ill, never be executed, but hopefully never have freedom either.

(I concede a slight chance the whole crazy thing is faked, but I doubt it).

No law that would pass the 1st amendment challenge would possibly be able to put a lid on it, so the only thing left is to make lemonade out of the lemon. This is hardly the only atrocity suffered by American victims that has had media produced about it. And it is S.O.P. to deny a convicted criminal (note the shooter hasn’t been convicted yet) the rights to profit off accounts of his or her crime.

While I don’t believe the govt had any involvement in this particular case, I wouldn’t put it past them.

That is why our 6th Amendment rights are so important.

Even though this SOB is guilty and deserves to die, I was pleased to see an attorney by his side protecting his rights for the very reasons you point out.

Citizens must be given due process in the unlikely event that our wicked govt is trying to set them up.

Thanks for the response.

If my wife and children were shot dead, the last thing I would want to have happen, would be the creation of a movie that heralded the play by play for profit.

Let’s say the name of the movie was Batman. Every time a Batman movie came out, I’d would have to become a hermit or be reminded twenty times per day of my family being slaughtered.

No thanks...

I appreciate the First Amendment connectivity here. I don’t believe the fate of the nation hinges on whether mass murder can be exploited for profit.

There may very well be excellent arguments that the fate of the nation is impacted more than I know by such, so I expect there to be comments that disagree with mine.

I’m being mundanely realist here. It’s going to get bumped up to the USSC if anyone tries to put a legal lid on it. And we know from history what the USSC has always said. It’s one of the small set of things on which the liberal and conservative wings have virtually unanimously agreed on. So I can see no point at raising any legal howl at that particular moon. Surely the victims of the 9/11 bombings were in the same situation, yet nobody called for censoring videos about them and nobody is going around today interviewing them about the agony they experience every time someone says airplane or boxcutter.

That being said, I’d hope there would be a popular push for any such media to be respectful to those who perished or were badly wounded. That the market, not the law, would punish what was overly exploitative.

Possibly because so many murder defense cases try it. This truly does look like one of the nuttiest of the nut murders the nation has seen for many a moon. What sort of ordinary rage or malice would have led this shooter to do this? Your average dumb juror in their mushroom farm is going to be perplexed.

Public shaming and shunning of the overly exploitative is about the best we can hope in this open society. Tabloid type coverage will sell to narrow niche audiences. Tabloids will also be equally glad to cover the agony of the victims and their families, as the horror of the attack.

Ultimately, I believe that airing the story of great evil does more good to society than suppressing it. Aired, it can serve as a warning.

I remain unconvinced that shunning the overly exploitive will accomplish anything.  It's a decent thought.  And truth be told, I think you and I are the ones headed for the classification as sub-culture.

There is cause for you to think that airing stories helps.  Note that citizens are buying guns at an accelerated rate.  That's due in no small part the the Colorado incident and the calls for gun control.  However, it wasn't due to the movie which isn't out yet.

I will note that the telling of the 09/11 incidents for instance, don't actually include all there was to know about the perps.  We get this sanitized version that eliminates the idea we need to keep and eye on some groups.

It does further the idea we need to be watched at airports, but doesn't make any mention of the idea it might be better if we didn't allow people from terrorist nations or regions to come here.  I'm not convinced you have made your case.

Yes the movies are somewhat informative, but the information presented is selective.  And the movies can easily and often are more propagandist against our true interests, than they are for them.

If anything, I don't think we are more resilient because of these movies, but more resilient despite these movies because we have done our home-work.

That doesn’t eliminate the fact that there are some severe problems with free speech these days. Just one example: The Media is free to lie it’s ass off to the American public.

Tell me how that’s working out for us.

You are arguing on sound principle, and we’re still losing the war.

Look at how this nation has declined over the last 25 years. Should the mainstream media be allowed to spew misrepresentations to the American public? After all, that’s First Amendment protected.

We have a populace that is misled by by the media to the point that it hasn’t a clue how badly Obama and the entire body of the Left has screwed the nation.

Whether it be the MSM, our schools, or Leftist politicians, their lies are all protected, and our nation is going down to a large extent because of their guaranteed First Amendment rights.

What the resolution to these problems are, I don’t honestly know, but there is a major destructive problem here.

So we can wax rhapsodic on the First Amendment, something I am inclined to support to the bitter end, but I don’t think any of us are supposed to stand by and allow the Left to kill us by using guaranteed freedoms against us.
