James Holmes

Fellow Inmates 'Talking About Killing' Him

Recently released inmates at Arapahoe Detention Center in Colorado are saying the only thing the inmates still inside can talk about ... is killing James Holmes ... this according to a new report.

Wayne Medley told the NY Daily News, "All the inmates were talking about killing him. Everyone was looking for an opportunity. It's all they could talk about."

The paper says Holmes is in solitary confinement and was placed on suicide watch. Another inmate, Dima Damalov, told the paper that if Holmes was released into the general population he wouldn't "live to see Monday's court appearance."

A jail employee said Holmes "hasn't shown any remorse" while an unidentified inmate told the paper, "He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards. He's spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy."

Holmes is due in court for the first time on Monday. He could face the death penalty if convicted.

Of course he's acting crazy. He thinks it will get him out of the Death Penalty. The man studied neuroscience focusing on behavior. Judging from everything that he's done, he's been planning this for some time. I'm sure he planned how to get himself deemed insane so that he can sit back and watch the effects of what he's done.

The inmates making those claims don't care about the victims, they want notoriety for being the person who kills Holmes.
They're the same as Holmes, same egos, same motives.
Just like inmates who claim to want to kill *alleged* rapists, murderers, child molesters, and sometimes do...they're usually inmates who themselves have done horrible, despicable things to people.
They like the way society pats them on the back if they beat, rape or kill a man who was convicted....wrongfully or rightfully...of rape, child molestation, or murder in a scenario where media and public have made special note of the crime.
That said...we know for a fact that Holmes is guilty, because of his immediate location, his clothes, weaponry, car, and the way his apartment is rigged...so I really don't give a flying f-ck if he ends up murdered and dead.
He deserves it.

And I don't know why people insist on believing the fairytale that prisons are where people with morals and a sense of justice live. They're full of rapists and murderers and molesters.

Details?    

Suicide watch for A guy who hates humanity?
Why? So we can expensively go to court for years, prolonging his death to fight it out in a court room.
So maybe he can plea insanity or get off completely because his rights weren't read correctly to him?

America, let's pay our bills.
This suicide watch for killers is BS

Well they sound like criminals so it figures they are in jail. They want to kill him because they figure they would get away with it since people are probably full of hate for him at this point. How they think they are better for killing him I don't know, because murder is murder. I think alot of people have thought about hurting others but somehow could control themselves and he couldn't. Should you really hate for that?


I guess he was somewhat sorry because he did tell the cops about the booby traps. He didin't have to since he is already up for the death penalty as it is. I can guess eveyrone there is treating him pretty bad so maybe that is why he is spitting. It is hard for someone to be locked in a concrete box of a room for 23 hrs. a day, especially if they have as active a mind as he does.


If people were allowed to carry guns, things wouldn't have gotten as far as they did.

My God, vigilante justice is sick. Remember, Hitler passed judgement and meted out his justice.

Bless the inmates at the Arapahoe Detention Center. Even guys who have done wrong in their lives know that this guy is bad news. I say let them have him. Show him how real men take care of problems like him. Colorado taxpayers are going to be supporting this evil b@*tard forever because no jury will have the balls to put him to death. I can hear it now....."Oh he is mentally illl (whine whine whine)" So what? Kill him.

Suicide watch? This guy is loovvvvvving the attention. His adultfinder profile said please write me in prison. He waited in the theater, almost on purpose. Allowed himself to be "caught" in the parking lot. I think he sees himself as some sort of anarchist superhero. And trust me, in the anarchist community, they are totally digging this.
