Colorado "Batman" shooting - July 20, 2012, 01:44 PM

To respect Von's wish to keep his movie related thread "clean", I suggest we move the shooting related discussion over here.

I want to ask to whomever has seen the movie: do you think this POS was emulating the bad guy in the movie? I mean would that thought make some sort of sense? He walks in with a "mask" and shoots random people just to stir shit up, isn't that pretty much what the villain in the movie does?

I don't think he was emulating the villain. He knew that the movie would be sold out, thus lots of people in a small, dark space.

Reports say that he told the police that he was the Joker (and his hair was dyed red).

I wonder what would happen if the public petitioned for a swift execution. Forget a trial, forget incarceration, forget rehabilitation...save the time/money and just take him out back.

Also, I wonder why:

A. He didn't off himself as most of these assholes do
B. He surrendured without a fight
C. He told the authorities about his rigged apartment

Was this from someone in the theater? There were also reports that he was dressed like Batman this morning.

Nevermind, I missed the "told police" part. Where did you see that?

Wow... If that is true I wonder how, HOW no-one around him realized he was out of touch with reality. I mean it's a gradual process, you just don't wake up thinking you literally are "the joker".

This is fuckin hard to read:

"I hit the floor and hid behind the seats in front of me, pulling my wife down to hide with me," Witt said. "It was the longest minute of my life. The gunshots just kept coming. I knew it could be over any second. I knew my wife could be gone any second. It was absolutely surreal. I felt something hit my left arm, and my first thought was, 'At least it's just my arm.'"
"There were so many people running," he said. "I didn't look back. I just remember getting up from the floor and shouting, 'We have to run.'"
Witt said he held his wife's hand as they rushed out of the theater.
"There was a moment where I lost her hand, but I grabbed her shirt," he said. "We didn't let go of each other."

Because he's convinced he's the fucking Joker.

People say that given the fact that so many people were dressed in costume, nobody thought twice about all the body armor he was wearing. I wonder how he got both an AR and a shotgun into the theatre. The reports say he propped open the back door to the theatre before shooting. I wonder if he had them stashed back there.

Good point. This was probably part of his plan to get inside the precinct and kill the Commissioner. I have a feeling he is going to be highly disappointed.

I wonder what he had done to make his mother say that "You have the right person."

People realize it, and even try to help, but you can't force medication down their throats or make hospitals keep them.

True... And in retrospect people will say "he was weird but he never hurt a fly, how could he do this"...

What a mess.

Happens every time though. Look at the face eater. Friends and family all saying "Oh he was a Christian, blah, blah, blah." yet he's jacked out of his mind on bath salts.

I'd like to think that sometimes, that really is the case. That the person really was a decent person but one stupid decision led them down the path of no return.
