Police Looking for Second “Person of Interest” in Theater Shooting
KDVR Fox 31 Denver ^ | Saturday, July 22, 2012 | Justin Joseph

Posted on 07/21/2012 10:54:09 PM PDT by kristinn

Sources tell FOX31 Denver reporter Justin Joseph that a second man is now a person-of-interest in the Aurora theater shooting investigation. We are not disclosing his identity because he has not been charged.

Twelve people were killed and 58 injured early Friday when James Egan Holmes allegedly opened fire inside the crowded theater.

Neighbors of the person of interest say for the past two days there have been SWAT team and police cars in their alley and unmarked cars in street.

“He’s been there about a year,” said one neighbor.

Agents showed up again this morning.

“I woke up this morning with cops still here trying to look inside his home. At 5:00 a.m. cops showed-up and asked me about (him).”

Sources tell Justin Joseph someone made a call from the person of interest’s phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him.

Well, they may easily have gotten the call, from some 'nutcase' who wants only wants to cast his 'hilarious' shadow; somewhere tween the newsbytes; but this does not mean; that THE person of interest, made the call. Which; is simply; unlikely.

(Easy to assume 'overlay' or connection; but need not be. . .again; 'crank calls' expected, from those mentally; 'at large'. Pathetic; there are so many. . .)

That is the only information available from news sources. One can buy vests.

13. Is it legal for civilians to buy Body Armor?

In general, yes - for law-abiding folks. A felony conviction makes possession of Body Armor illegal under federal law and in many states.

We have had civilian clients with many different civilian needs for Body Armor so we understand the need for vests for civilians. Our policy is to only sell to law-abiding adults who have a lawful purpose for Body Armor. (A parent or guardian may buy for a minor with a legitimate need.)

Residents of Connecticut are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military). We can’t ship to Connecticut, or even accept credit cards billed there...

We cannot ship to residents of Connecticut
who are not police or military.

Some states are considering new legislation to prohibit or restrict sales of Body Armor to civilians, e.g., New York. If you are in a state that passes such a law, you would be well advised to make your Body Armor purchase now before it becomes much more expensive and inconvenient, if not prohibited altogether.

A lot of websites are talking about this situation as being a false flag event before the UN treaty signing. We are not the only ones who are suspicious of this story and this government. Some sites even identified the shooter by a muslim name and then everything changed to Holmes. My hinky meter is off the chart.

He must have converted recently.
The media probably wants to blame a white guy so they give out his birth name.

The other option is that the police originally were chasing a muslim who may have been the actual shooter. Holmes was probably the scape goat, a distraction, that’s why he gave up so easily.

I agree, it is strange that the story changed so dramatically so quickly. I mean, where did they get the muslim name to begin with? The guy was arrested that same night, did he give them a wrong name? Lots of questions, and so far I am not satisfied with the answers. I understand Obama will be campaigning with the survivors some time today. I hope everyone will see through him to the truth.

“How did the FBI have no clue?”

Who says they didn’t have a clue?

FBI has instigated most “terrorist attacks” in the last few years just so they can catch some witless rube to make themselves look good.

Gee, that Fast and Furious job wasn’t effective enough so we’ll try something else to whip the public into a frenzy for gun confiscation.

Yes, the guy was a nutjob but he was living on unemployment. Where did he get the money to buy all that stuff? Where did he get the “push” to do it? There are plenty of unstable people around that would just take a little nudge.

Somethings going on here.

What did he do after, just hang out somewhere and wait for the cops to come and BEAT THE LIVING HELL OUT OF HIM?

I’m not accusing cops of anything, but after watching tons of reports of things like this, the guy when surrounded usually offs himself.

In a way, it’s kind of Timothy McVeigh like, I always thought there was something more to that.

This dude wasn’t normal. But I’m not sure I would call him crazy. Good chance he woke up this morning and couldn’t remember a single damn thing.

One statement said Holmes bought a ticket, went inside, then went out (rigging door so he could get back) and came back in with gear and guns.

Racer,
When I was a pup I went to the movies and if someone knocked on the emergency exit someone would always open it and a few would sneak in to watch the movie.
NOT kill the theater goers,
When I heard of someone opening the emergency exit I thought that would not necessarily put the door opener as an accomplise.

The company he bought stuff from said he bought a “Blackhawk urban assault vest” for $107.

http://tacticalgear.com/blackhawk-urban-assault-vest

This is not body armor. Its the equivalent of a fisherman’s vest but made for gun owners used to store ammo and other gear. It offers no protection. Well, it would stop a paint ball or an airsoft pellet.

So far there is no evidence he had a bulletproof vest. If some people in the theater had had guns, Holmes might be dead right now. “No gun zone” strikes again!

bullet proof vests

Be wary of the media calling things what they aren't. Apparently he bought some type of vest at retail. So he had something that *looked* like a "bulletproof vest" but wasn't necessarily the real thing. The stores that sold him the stuff (I think was Bass Pro and Gander Mtn) listed what was sold.

“Also late Saturday, the Aurora Police Department dismissed reports a second individual was being looked at as a person of interest or a suspect in the shooting.

In a statement obtained by Fox News, Aurora Police Department spokeswoman Cassidee Carlson called reports of a second suspect “unconfirmed and inaccurate.”

She confirmed an “associate” of Holmes had been interviewed in relation to the case, but said at this time they do not believe he was involved.

Sources told Fox News a possible second person of interest in the case was being investigated, though authorities were not yet sure if the individual is necessarily tied to the crime.

The person who owns the home where the reported person of interest lives tells FoxNews.com investigators are looking for his tenant because they have interviewed all students from Holmes’s program and his tenant is the only one who they haven’t been able to reach. However, the landlord said he believes the tenant has been in Korea for “weeks.””

Would be a bit rich if it came out the guy's weapon came from Eric Holder's Fast-n-Furious arms smuggling deal.

That said, the FBI is not all powerful, but all-bungling.

Police Looking for Second “Person of Interest” in Theater Shooting

Of course they are, because it's an act of organized domestic terrorism, and they knew it all along.

It is a remarkably interesting turn of events that the Aurora police chief has NYPD intelligence on his resume.

I would even speculate that he took the job there as an assignment in anticipation of just such an attack, but that would imply that there was a gross failure to prevent it, and I don't think that was the case.

Some vendors require law enforcement ID for body armor, many do not.

Even the vendors that require ID for purchase have no control over what happens to their armor afterwards. At gun shows I see lots of used police armor on sale.

For all we know so far, his body armor might have been cheap junk.

Do we know for sure that he had body armor? In post #78, it talks about him being sold an "assault vest", which is not body armor, but just a vest with lots of pockets for magazines and places to hang gear from. Could that have been mistaken for armor?

New photo of Brian Ross, the convicted child molester.

ABC News was just so DAMNED eager to tie the patriots of the "Tea Party" to an insane act of mass-murder, that Ross and Stephanopolous just couldn't stop themselves when they did a Google search and found a Jim Holmes on a Tea Party list.

Their wet dream is to connect "Tea Party" and "terrorist" as a permanent meme in the MSM.

Turnabout is fair play. Please share this photo on FR, FB and Twitter, and include "Brian Ross, the convicted child molester" in the accompanying text, so that the picture will be linked on Google to Brian Ross forever. This smarmy prick and ABC "news" deserve it, in spades.

In that linked report, the word "withdrawing" is used in context to his withdrawing from the program.

The university says Holmes enrolled in the program last year and was withdrawing. Montgomery says Holmes didn't indicate why he was withdrawing.

Montgomery says Holmes took an oral exam at the end of the semester that all students must pass to continue in the program. She says privacy laws prevent the school from releasing his score.

If that is the case, then we have conspiracy charges to add to things.

So instead of being sentenced to 12 consecutive life sentences, he'll be sentenced to 13 consecutive life sentences.

First of all, if it was a Muslim terrorist, he mostly likely would have not been silent during the attack; he would have been yelling “Allah Akbar” and “Death to the Infidels”, would have blown himself as a martyr, his terrorist cell would be been claiming credit for it by now.

As far as the license plate; that’s not a vanity plate. Some years ago I had a license plate that started with WWF. People used to ask me if that was because I liked the World Wrestling Federation or the World Wildlife Fund. I know have a license plate that contains the numbers 116 but you know if you look at it upside down it says …….911….cue the scary music…. oooo…..I must be a muzzie.

“he would have been yelling “Allah Akbar” and “Death to the Infidels”

The shooter was wearing a gas mask. Maybe he was saying allahu akbar. And, you don’t always have to yell it. Besides, the movie was still playing and the screaming would have started as people realized what was going on.

It may not have been a vanity plate. In my experience, the spaces themselves indicate vanity plates.

If there was a Muslim, or if Holmes had Muslim sympathies, this would be devastating to Obama’s program of appeasement. Who knows what directives came from above to Aurora authorities. And this is still not explained:
