Few hints of alleged shooters’ past
Fox 13 News ^ | 07/20/2012 | Mariano Castillo

Posted on 07/20/2012 1:21:10 PM PDT by aimhigh

. . . .
It turns out that Holmes, who has roots in San Diego, was student at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora. He was in the process of withdrawing at the time of the shooting, university officials said. He was a doctoral student in the neuroscience program.

A college syllabus that lists Holmes as a student shows that he may have taken a class in which he studied topics as diverse as substance abuse, schizophrenia, depression and other disorders.

Geez a violent movie that has an OWS plot theme and who would think this might be a tipping point for an OWS crazy? But if it does come out that he was more engaged than Loughner in D party politics we won’t here a peep.

I think it is possible for someone to spend TOO MUCH TIME on a “college” campus before being reprogrammed back to a normal human being. JMO.

So, his edumacation was in essence self-exploratory. This is not uncommon and I suspected as much when I read the Neuroscience PhD student reference.

Would like to hear confirmation or the discrediting of the OWS connection one way or the other.

Your comment might be relevant if there was any actual evidence that Holmes had anything to do with OWS, which there isn’t.

It’s beyond me why people continue to put that link out there. Haven’t any of you even read it? There is *NOTHING* there connecting him to OWS. Good God ...

So I guess the sequence is something like this:

Blame it on the TEA Party until evidence develops that he’s a left-winger. At that point, concentrate on his psychiatric issues and build the case that he’s a whack job.

Of course that opens up the issue of “how did he get the guns,” but we all know how we’ll take care of that one.

It's because people want it to be true. Things people want to be true are true, things people don't want to be true are false.

Great analytic methodology, don't you think?

Now he'll be immortalized by having a chapter devoted to him in these textbooks.

Can’t even tell you how many times I looked at that site trying to figure out where the OWS connection was. Just absolutely stupid.

Whatever political camp this mutant identifies, we should do to him what the Romans did: Tie him up on a cross in a hot desert and let him die slowly with birds picking him apart.

See, Holmes wore a gas mask, and there's a picture on the site of someone in a gas mask, and then there are other pictures of OWS people.

Clearly, that is proof that Holmes is in OWS.

Surely you're not suggesting that a private investigator who lives a couple thousand miles away, appears to make his living catching cheating spouses, and never met Holmes might be jumping the gun just a wee bit?

I'm going to remember this when he is found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Make of it what you will but here is a guy that resembles Holmes at an Occupy San Diego (Holmes’s home town) event wearing all black clothes and a bulletproof vest. Check the 23 second mark. Could be coincidence of course.

In addition to the obvious lies about this guy being a part of the Tea Party the MSM have been spreading the lie that he is the “lone” shooter and that he acted alone.

He is a 25 year old young man with no job, no identifiable source of income, no motive and no experience or knowledge of firearms or explosives.

He apparently has an arsenal of guns that no one knows how he obtained. He has an enormous amount of expensive, complicated and probably illegal explosives and has set them up in a way that the bomb squad was required to clear out the entire building and estimate that it will take experts a week to disarm.

His personal life and activities are evidently a mystery. Reporters provide no associates or friends that can provide insight into his life or what he was doing. Nobody noticed that in his tiny apartment he was acquiring and rigging complicated and sophisticated explosive configurations and acquiring guns and ammunition.

Witnesses say he was cool and composed while he was shooting over 50 people including a 6 year old child. This young man has had training. He has had people supporting him in his efforts.

Thanks. He's a nut. Whether he liked dims or pubbies, ows or the NRA he is a nut. Nobody in any group supports actions such as these except for the islamists and mexican gangs maybe. IMHO.

I called him an Occupy terrorist because media clowns were calling him a member of the Tea Party. Give um’ back what they give until the facts come out. To the victims and their families, none of this nonsense matters.

Does look just like him. What a sad day for American that this Occupy scum vents his hatred and anger on innocent people. It’s bad enough all of the violence, rape and lawbreaking the Occupiers have engaged in in their year-long traveling hate-fest, and now it culminates in this hideous act of mass murder.

Don’t forget it could be just a coincidence. Lone, psychopathic nut is always as good a guess as any other in these cases.

Was Holmes associated with any group?

Did he receive any training?

Where did he get his guns?

What was the source of his income?

Was he moslem?

Was he a Gay Activist?

Was this incident intended to stop people from seeing this movie because of its implicit undermining of Obama’s campaign rhetoric and being too close to Occupy Wall Street propaganda? Will it succeed in doing this?

I wish people would just call him what he is, “a kook” and call it a night. Good Lord the guy was probably “a-political” which many people are.

Possibly so. Striking how his mother immediately identified him as the shooter. There’s got to be a real, and carefully concealed, history of mental illness there. The lady knows a lot she’s not talking about.

A radical far Left-Wing and Registered Democrat and avid Obama Supporter, “Occupy Black Bloc Member James E. Holmes Shoots Up Aurora Co Movie Theater Killing 12 And Wounding 50.

A lone gunman dressed in riot gear and wearing a gas mask burst into a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., at a midnight showing of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” and opened fire, killing at least 12 people and injuring at least 50.

The suspect, James E. Holmes, 24, of Aurora, was caught by police in the parking lot of the Century 16 Movie Theaters, nine miles outside Denver, after police began receiving dozens of 911 calls at 12:39 a.m. MT. Police said the man appeared to have acted alone.

Witnesses in the movie theater said Holmes crashed into the auditorium through an emergency exit about 30 minutes into the film, set off a smoke bomb, and began shooting. Holmes stalked the aisles of the theater, shooting at random, as panicked movie-watchers in the packed auditorium tried to escape, witnesses said.

James Holmes, DOB 12/13/1987: The Batman movie portrays the OWS crowd in a negative vein,the new Batman movie featured the villain as an Occupy Wall Street type. I would first look at the possibility that James Holmes, DOB 12/13/1987, was caught up in the OWS movement took it upon himself to strike back against “THE MAN.

James E Holmes 1690 Paris St, Apt 10 Aurora, CO 80010-2918
