Two counts for each person killed? You can kill someone twice....?

This was a "False Flag" incident meant to influence the American public about gun control.

I'm going to assume that the Arapahoe County Public Defender's Office is representing Holmes.

Some family members have told me, I'm so glad that you are not representing the shooter.

Let me tell you, representing this guy would be the easiest job ever. Work hard, long hours, bill the crap out of the case. (Assuming the attorneys are not on salary.)

1. Everybody knows "whodunit." No worry that your client is actually innocent.

2. The best possible result is to save Holmes from the death penalty. Life in prison is a foregone conclusion. If he gets death, so what? He deserves it.

The Public Defender's office "death team" is representing him. They don't have many death penalty cases in Colorado, but when they do, these are the people appointed to represent the defendant. I'm sure they are on salary. And I'm sure they hope he shaves his head, like yesterday.

1:17 Put down the crack pipe and pay attention. Look at the amount of ammunition and weapons this kid was allowed to purchase in a very short time frame and tell me you’re OK with the system.

2:46,

I do not smoke crack (I am not a Democrat) and I support less restrictive gun legislation. It is the only way we can protect ourselves from the government. This Holmes fellow has most likely been used as a government asset. Are you ok with that? Or is my conclusion too large for you to wrap your head around?

Anonymous said...

Yes Mr. Disguised. I AM OK with the system.

First, the problem with your reaction is your inability to comprehend math. Statistically, these events are insignificant. As such, solutions such as you ponder are unnecessary and would prove to be ineffective at reducing the statistical significance of these events, considering that there is not one

Second, there may very well come a day when the shiate truly hits the proverbial fan in this country and you are going to be very glad many people had the foresight to stockpile 50,000 rounds or more of ammo and reloading supplies for another million.

What the hell is up with the Newark meeting tonight about the Library? This is very Rhome-like politics.

2:46 Didn't he purchase a large amount of it online?

Quit selling guns and ammo online sounds good to me.

Guns don't kill people,the bullets do.

If there had been a few armed citizens in that theater, this clown would have not killed as many innocent people. I think he should hang on the courthouse lawn until the buzzards are finished with him. If people think gun control will stopped violent gun crimes they are sadly mistaken. Criminals don't buy their guns legally anyway. Gun control to me is being able to hit what you are aiming at.

I am not for taking guns away from people but the whole "if there were more guns in the theater" people seem to forget that the gunman was in the middle of a crowded theater. Do they not understand if there were more guns there would be more innocent people dead.

Even police snipers won't take the shot in a crowd - much less a crowd in a dark theater i the middle of people running around - why would it be a good idea for a random Bubba with a permit to do so?

We all know Barry thinks he is innocent and the Police caused him to do this. That is why he crossed over to te defense side.

I don't know about Bubba, but I have a right to protect myself. If I had been in that darkened theater on that horrific night (fat chance, Batman, meh) with a weapon, my chances of survival go up.

Why is it so shocking for people to understand we have a God-given right to protect ourselves with an equal amount (or more preferably) of force against those who oppose us?

Talk about the cops and their shooting discipline? Reports say the cops in Aurora were waiting for back-up as shots could be heard inside. While that may have been the wisest course for their survival, it didn't do the moviegoers much good.

An armed society is a polite society. Well, maybe not the first year, but the second year will be pretty quiet.

I guess what I am saying is, If I were in the theater and was armed and I am watching a movie and some guy comes in with a gas mask on and stands in front of the screen, I am gonna take notice that something is not right. When he pops a smoke grenade and pulls out a weapon, I am gonna stand up, take aim, and shoot the dumbass.

Since this has happened, hundreds have been killed by people that can't stop drinking beer. Where is the debate, the demands to stop it? If this shooting happened EVERY NIGHT in 5 different cities each night for the last couple weeks...the country would be in total turmoil and panic; all movies shut down, etc. And yet, the same body count is happening, and will continue to happen, because we have no will to stop drunk driving.

If what you are saying is true, then that makes the Aurora police look like idiots. If cops are outside while an active shooter is inside, there is NO time to wait for a backup. That is the cops job to risk life and limb. Yes, it would suck to be a cop there at that time, but it was their job to go in there and stop the attack.

9:26 and if the guy was actually a part of the show you'd have killed an innocent person. That's what you get with quick trigger gun fanatics. Then you'd be on trial for 2nd degree murder.

Hey, 1:17, why don't you go tell the dead people this guy killed that they are not really dead. Yeah, it was all just staged, a "false flag" incident!

Not real. It's all a big act.

HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE!

An interesting tidbit of police trivia, police tactics have evolved in the thirteen years since the Columbine H.S. massacre in nearby Littleton, Colorado.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbine_High_School_massacre#Police_tactics

"One significant change to police tactics following Columbine is the introduction of the Immediate Action Rapid Deployment tactic, used in situations with an active shooter. Police followed the traditional tactic at Columbine: surround the building, set up a perimeter, contain the damage. That approach has been replaced by a tactic which takes into account the presence of an active shooter whose interest is to kill, not to take hostages. This tactic calls for a four-person team to advance into the site of any ongoing shooting, optimally a diamond-shaped wedge, but even with just a single officer if more are not available. Police officers using this tactic are trained to move toward the sound of gunfire and neutralize the shooter as quickly as possible. Their goal is to stop the shooter at all costs; they are to walk past wounded victims, as the aim is to prevent the shooter from killing or wounding more. David Cullen, author of the 2009 book Columbine, said that, 'The active protocol has proved successful at numerous shootings during the past decade. At Virginia Tech alone, it probably saved dozens of lives.'"

10:02 -- Huh? Apparently you do not understand what a false flag is... idiot. Look it up.

10:26 -- Cops captured the shooter outside, after the incident was over. Lives were not saved by police action in that theatre. I can only imagine it all happened too quickly for the police to prevent. Tactics, protocol, rapid deployment -- all great words, but meaningless in this case.

Baylor Too said...

12:00PM, I didn't say that the new tactics made a difference in theater case, but they sure would have made a difference if the shooter's gun had not jammed, and he had stayed inside the theater shooting more people.

At Columbine (check the wikipedia page and you will see this), the shootings started at about 11:15am. There was a brief shootout between the killers and a cop OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL near the beginning of the event. Then the killers went inside the school and shot a whole bunch more people before offing themselves at 12:08pm. The SWAT team didn't enter the school until 1:09pm, a whole hour after the shooters committed suicide. Get that?--police did not enter the school until nearly two hours after the shooting started. Instead, they set up a perimeter, and tried to help some kids get out of the building. (You may recall the video coverage with the police outside helping kids jump out the windows.) At least one teacher bled to death, who would have been alive today if the police had entered the building sooner. Other kids' lives could have been saved.

Back in those days, if a shooting broke out, the victims inside a building were on their own; if a student or teacher carried a weapon, they may have been able to defend themselves and prevent further tragedy.

Now, however, the cops aren't going to wait to organize, they are going to storm the building. If an innocent civilian inside the building exhibits a weapon, they are at great risk of being shot by the cops.

1:00 --

Not to be flippant, but so what? People died in any case and if others had been armed, it MAY have been prevented. This argument is just as good as saying IF the shooter's weapon had not jammed, etc. See what I mean? My stance is that people have a God-given right to protect themselves. More and more often, the state rules that citizens do not have such a right (which, to me, is the height of insanity)to protect themselves. And I mean by whatever means, a blade or spray, or (horrors!) a firearm.

And let me repeat the necessity of having an armed citizenry in a free republic. Those who give the state its power must have the ability to remove said power forcefully, if necessary, and how are we going to do that if we are disarmed and our trusted authorities have spun out of control?

Additionally, this false flag idea is very troubling. If the authorities are staging such operations, and in many cases, it appears they are, then where does that leave the entire concept of law and order?

I'll tell you where it leaves us -- wary of ALL government entities. Does anyone really expect the truth surrounding the Aurora shootings to come to light? Did a young, brilliant doctoral student simply flip out and decide to kill a bunch of people in order to emulate a comic book character? Yeah, right.

Any of you geniuses know who Holmes' father is? Look it up. Follow the trail.
