Batman Movie Inspires Insanity or Part of Republican Conspiracy?

It's murder, not a game.  Nor is it an attempt to win an Oscar or Emmy.  Unfortunately, some people can't distinguish fact from fantasy. An armed 24 year-old man opened fire in the Aurora Colorado Century 16 theater at the Midnight premiere of the new Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises." 12 people are confirmed dead and as many as 50 others were wounded. (Police had earlier reported 14 deaths, but only 12 fatalities were confirmed.) The youngest reported victim is a 3-month-old, who is said to be doing fine at University Hospital, which is treating 20 patients.  Nine of the patients are in critical condition. A 6 year-old victim is being treated at Children's Hospital.  Five other victims are at Children's hospital. Victims were taken to a total of six hospitals in the area.

Theater 9 has a capacity of around 300 people. The gunman, who was wearing a gas mask, set off a smoke canister in the theater and opened fire upon the crowd.  Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates did not release the name or motive for the shooting in his news conference. However, Legal Pub has learned that the suspect is believed to be James Holmes, a 24-year-old American. Holmes is in police custody, and the FBI says there is no indication of terrorist ties. After Holmes allegedly opened fired, pandemonium erupted and the crowd fled for the exits.  Some of the bullets also went through the walls of an adjacent theater, injuring patrons next door.

Hundreds of police officers, ambulance and emergency crews responded to the frantic 911 calls. The 24 year old suspect was found by his car and arrested. The man was dressed in black, carrying a knife, rifle and a handgun.  The suspect was also wearing a bulletproof vest. Ironically, the suspect surrendered to police without a struggle.Police subsequently searched the suspects North Aurora home after he spoke of "possible explosives in his residence." There is no evidence of additional shooters. Rush Limbaugh had predicted that the victim in the movie Bane would be used as campaign rhetoric against Mitt Romney in the campaign Romney had worked for venture capitalist Bain (same pronunciation) in the past.  Seems the use of this reference to Romney working with a villain during campaign rhetoric may now be a dead issue.  Conspiracy?  We think not. Holmes appears to have acted alone.

The theater attack took place just about 25 miles from Columbine High School, where two students shot and killed 13 people in 1999.

Holmes, like any other suspect is presumed innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.

Conspiracy Theory said...

Rush Limbaugh talked about liberal conspiracies in the new “Batman” movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Rush pointed out that the villain in the new Batman movie is called “Bane.” Its pronouced “Bain”…as in “Bain Capital.” Republicans are worried about Romney’s Bain tenure and thus the movie is pro Obama.

The villain in “The Dark Knight Rises” is named Bane, B-a-n-e. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?”

“A lot of people are gonna see the movie, and it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd, and they’re gonna hear Bane in the movie and they’re gonna associate Bain. The thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, Romney and Bain, that these people will think back to the Batman movie, “Oh, yeah, I know who that is.”

“Batman” references by Democratic operatives will now have to be tempered because of this shooting.

So were Romney supporters behind the shooting?

I’m not a big Batman fan but have been told that the “Bane” character has been around in the comic books for a long time…over ten years.

As for the other ass-hat Holmes…ATTENTION!! Is what he wants. And not from you ore me, he seeks the attention he will receive for being a famous mass murderer but from a select group that will forgive him and save his soul…maybe get him institutionalized until we forget, than try to set him free.
I’m against the death penalty simply because so many innocent people have been exonerated from death row…caused by a broken judicial that many time rules out proof of innocence because of a good legal argument…this should never happen in a court of justice.

But if anyone deserves to be put to death it is this guy Holmes.

If you haven’t heard yet about the 6-year-old child killed, and how her 13-year-old babysitter was found by police trying to give this child CPR while the child’s mother lay critically wounded a few feet away…it will break your heart as it did mine.
In the interview the young babysitter said she will NEVER enter a theater again...

...this guy knew exactly the type of fear he wanted to leave behind.
