So now daddy has to show up to get his 15 minutes of fame. He will give us some line of bull crap how his son is a really nice person. This killer should be executed instantly.

I've been anticipating this movie for over 2 years. It was going to be one of the highlights of the summer. Now I just feel sad and sickened. I wish it was like the middle ages and they could put the guy on the rack and have him quartered in about two days.

Let me guess......"my son is a good boy, I would never think he would do something like this"

Followed by the countess interviews of people who went to kindegarden, highschool, the prom with him.

Of couse, everyone dig deep into your pockets so your taxes can pay for his meals, healthcare etc. for the rest of his life.

They showed his mother going into her house. I can't even imagine what his mother, father and family are going through. He obviously at one time was going fine to exceed at what he was studying. Sounds like a mental illness that hadn't been found or treated. He thought he was the Joker? yikes
All the families of the victims must think they're in a nightmare. I feel so sorry for them. :(

@MIKEG Your an idiot. First of all there are different courses to have guns, for ex. Hunter safety and concealed weapons course. 2nd of all, many people take these courses, but someone who plans to shoot up a theatre or kill someone on the street isn't gonna take it anyway, its not gonna stop them. And you think having laws to prevent ppl from buying guns is the solution? Trust me any criminal that plans to use that gun to harm someone else (instead of recreation or self defense), will find a way to get a gun anyway. If you make laws to prevent buying of guns your just taking away guns from someone that might be close by that would of been able to save your ass. Guns aren't the problem, people are

I used to live in the Aurora community and i know a few friends that go to that theatre very frequently. It has really opened my eyes to this world and i have been thinking all day "what if one of my friends were in there, how would i feel?" and i know if they were i would want James Holmes obliterated from this Earth, but i would NEVER blame the father. He clearly was a decent (at the least) father to raise a child to go to med school... so shut the f*** up idiots who think he had any cause of this whatsoever.
