James Holmes
' downstairs neighbor called a non-emergency police number to report loud music coming from the killer's apartment right around the time he was shooting up a movie theater nearby. 

Kaitlyn Fonzi told The Huffington Post she and her boyfriend were trying to sleep when they heard techno music coming from Holmes' apartment at around midnight. Fonzi said she went upstairs to bang on Holmes' door ... but he didn't answer. 

Fonzi, a 20-year old biology student at the University of Colorado at Denver, says she returned to her apartment called a non-emergency police number to report the disturbance.

She claims the song played over and over again until around 1:00 AM ... when it stopped abruptly. Fonzi says she went to sleep and was awoken an hour later by police telling her to evacuate.

Police received 911 calls from the movie theater beginning around 12:39 AM.

He wanted someone to break the door down to turn off the music, leading them to BLOW UP THE APARTMENT. Sounds like he had this totally planned out... premeditated... which would make him unable to plead insanity. oops...

This is what Kip Kunkel (sp?) did when he killed his parents. Left music on very loud. Must be part of the profile.

I bet TMZ and other s***my news outlets are loving this horrific act.. They will pump this story and milk it to death to America. Making money off ratings and dead people.. Theyre are just as guilty. Also the constant coverage gives the shooter what he wants and encourages the next freak to do the same. I'm telling ya ban TMZ and other news outlets. 24-7 news has been nothing but negativity and is screwing up society.

dam shame this had to happen. but this situation as well as all others involving a gun are situations that can be eliminated if theres a repel of the second amendment. the NRA is the most powerful special interest group in the country. if you breaks their backs, if you hold their feet to the fire, then owning guns and possesing them becomes impossible. all the public school shootings, all the "stand your ground" situations, all the late night clubbing/house party flareups will have a lot of survivors without guns being presently available. i'm angry at this kunclehead but i'm also tired of the families that say something has to be done when the solution was ALWAYS in their face!

And how exactly did you communicate that message Patrick? Smoke signals from your finely crafted hemp tent?

Unless you live on another planet, which it sounds like you just may, this society is YOURS also. Put down the bong, Patrick.

Could you please never show that face again. It's very offensive and you're just giving him the notoriety he wanted.
