Skip to comments.Few hints of alleged shooters’ past

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.

Occupy Black Bloc Member?
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.
Here’s another background article link:
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.
Why not just blame it on him?
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?
Right. I’ve been having a religious discussion with a guy on another thread. Come to find out that apparently, one can believe anything if they just try hard enough??!!!
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 (Holmess home town) event wearing all black clothes and a bulletproof vest. Check the 23 second mark. Could be coincidence of course.
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.
Guess they will have to ban Remington 870’s too....
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?
He got some of the guns at Bass Pro.
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.
build the case that hes a whack job.
No building necessary.
Thanks, I will predict that won’t be one of their ads.
Help him with his ‘insanity’ defense. Nice /s
“So, his edumacation was in essence self-exploratory.”
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.
There is NOTHING showing he was “NOT” connected to OWS.
At least freepers haven’t jumped to any conclusions and started blaming people, groups, organizations, administratio9ns, ethnic or religious groups...
