Accused mass murderer James Holmes told jailhouse workers that he remains stumped about what landed him in a Colorado lockup, a jail staffer told the Daily News. He claims he doesnt know why hes in jail, the worker said Thursday. He asked, Why am I here?

Was he a guinea pig for any experimental drugs?
Aurora shooting suspect was under psychiatrist's care - Americas - World - The Independent
Can’t wait for them to grill his psyc doc
Ironic. Liberals have long claimed low IQ perpetrators, breakers of unpopular laws/rules (e.g., harsh actions for illegal aliens, etc.) or the ‘common man’ should somehow be exempt or deserve special consideration in review of their crimes or their race. I might add that this special consideration never seems to extend itself to conservatives or ‘rich’ people.
So what’s happening now is that a man who cannot be connected to any of the undeserving categories (rich, conservative, etc.) is claiming mental disability - amnesia.
He’s using their own foibles against them.
Stick a blow torch on his foot for about 30 seconds and see if he remembers.
First step towards the insanity plea.... =.=
neuroscience the study of the brain, its 100 billion nerve cells, and the connections among those cells that control thought and action.
He’s got amnesia. He must know. What a crock. Show him his picture book, and the video of his foot prints of blood between the theater doos and his car.
Why be so kind to this animal.He should be decorating some lamp post or tree.
My,My,My.....James Holmes’ likely murders overshadow father Robert Holmes’ Libor testimony.
KingCast and Mortgage Movies remain pensive as James Holmes’ father,
Robert Holmes, is set to provide crippling info. on Libor & other
Don’t know what this means really, but it seems weird at least.
Five trillion dollar plus deficit since 2008? Deficit... what deficit?
You are there because the Left loves mass murderers.
Always amages me that “crazy” people never forget how to cash a check or feed their faces.
A person can be amnestic for all the events of a crime and still be able to participate in his defense. Amnesia does not render an individual incompetent to stand trial. A land mark case in this area can be found here: http://federal-circuits.vlex.com/vid/robert-wilson-united-states-america-36728352
Amnesia may seem like a plausible defense, I mean campaign strategy, for democrat politicians trying to get re-elected in November...
Well the rest of us will never forget that the orange-haired joker wannabe planned his murderous rampage for months.
He only wishes that it could be wiped from his memory and everyone else too.
He certainly remembered what he was there for at the time and followed his(?) plan exactly.
Guilt deflection FAIL...
Why do I have the creepiest feeling this whole thing started off as an elaborate “experiment” gone awry!?
Why be so kind to this animal.He should be decorating some lamp post or tree.This is a case where I don't want the death penalty to be swift. I want him around to answer questions. It's unlikely there were others involved but if there were, a swift execution isn't in our best interests. We have plenty of time to kill this animal. Let's wait and see what he finally comes out with. (And I'm not talking about this amnesia BS.)
Because you’ve read too many mystery novels?
The Libor Testimony is likely disinformation or just a lie. It is back tracked to Sorcha Faal and everyone is running with it.
I will say that no one can claim without a doubt that James Holmes is the killer based on available public evidence.
There may be forensic evidence on him but he could be a drugged up stooge found in his car.
Gas Mask #2 guy could have killed the people.
I am wondering why more people aren’t dead. They were sitting down. He could have blown their heads off.
His psychiatrist once was in charge of Air Force physical care in Texas.
A psychotic, homicidal, maniac with a high IQ committing his crimes with meticulous planning and premeditation. Joker has to dig deep into his bag of tricks to weasel out of this one.
No, but I sure do listen to many Sherlock Holmes BBC dramatizations!
Yeah, but this Joker... has NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, the NYT and WaPo on his side--
I think he was under mind control. Look how strung out he looks. Compare his pic w/the guy who shot Giffords. Same deer-in-headlights strung out look. And this happens right before UN Guns Treaty was to be signed??Work of our own govt????
The Hillary defense?
> Was he a guinea pig for any experimental drugs?
Or mind-controlling micro-chips?
Just have Moe and Larry bonk him on the head with a hammer and he'll snap out of it. Can I suggest a 15 pound sledge hammer with a 36" handle wielded by a body builder cousin of one of the victims?
He could have been under some sort of mind control y”all. His dad was scheduled to testify against the bankers to Congress on that libor thingy
This guy is not—IMO—a schizophrenic (I am a physician, but not a psychiatrist). Schizophrenics cannot plan like this guy did, nor could someone in the throes of this most serious mental illness do what he did in booby-trapping his apartment. Ted Kaczynski was not schizophrenic, nor was the Norwegian shooter Breivik. Perhaps borderline personality disorder or other diagnosis fits best. I would bet on drugs (legal and/or illegal) as being the main culprits with this dude’s descent into mental hell.
Who knows? Maybe. Maybe he's just a clever, high-IQ liar. And maybe he's a government "The Finders" type experiment.
How is the average American to find out. The judge has clamped down on information. And even if he didn't, there are no intrepid reporters who will investigate unless the CIA media guy that works in their press bureau directs them to look for a Tea Party angle.
In such case, he should be taken out and put down, just like any other mad dog that has killed innocents. . .
exactly...and it worked for her
Ehhh, if he doesn’t know why he is jail... how does he KNOW he is in jail?????????????????/
He finally woke up.
Toldja he’d be freaked.
riiiight... more like a ploy his attorney told him to pull so he can claim an insanity defense.
That's my feeling also.
Cue Twilight zone music:
Maybe this shooting is a blessing in disguise.
Maybe the shooter had a brain chip implant and somehow the blue screen of death appeared. No one saw it. No one knew how to "Control/Alt/delete". Drugs seemed the only way to cover up the screw-up. The brain chip started functioning based on what the eyes saw on another computer screen. It became a chip to chip communication. Would-be shooter became more and more obsessed with computer games to the point he couldn't differentiate between reality and cyber world.
Question: If the government messed up with this particular brain chip implant, would they notify the public? Never mind, they sealed the files.
Would they stop chipping? nah, it creates jobs
oh, yeah, the blessing: Maybe this would stop chip experimentation and implantation. Yeah, I'm dreaming.
Where's my remote control? I need to switch channels.
ah! a commercial!
I think the clinical term is, "he is bat crap crazy".
I am sure drugs played a role in this monsters life, but there was something far worse going on inside this guys head.
Well of course he's insane...
He should have rolled his $h*t in little balls and ate crayons!
Fully agree. The amnesia fits right in with that idea also.
The pictures I saw of the bloody footprints did not lead from the theater doors to his car. One picture clearly showed the footprints leading up the sidewalk away from his car.
BTW, I too am a admirer of Thomas Sowell.
So you support "death panels" for those who suffer from serious,chronic,brain disorders? I have a (fairly,at least) serious,and chronic,heart disorder.Should I be put down too?
He must have remembered being there, because he wanted to know how the movie ended.
He can claim anything he wants, and I will not be too concerned about it. He will not get out into society, ever. His only options are death penalty, the supermax prison in Colorado, or a mental institution. Probably the mental institution option seems better. But he will never be a free man any more than Charles Manson.
Except for the months of preparation part.
That kinda kills his defense.
Those footprints belong to the victims. They ran out of that exit door. Police also took some of the victims in their squad cars so the prints could have been from a victim who was helped by police.
The shooter probably never saw any prints. He was most possibly in custody by then.
