James Holmes

Summer Camp Photos

EXCLUSIVE

James Holmes -- Summer Camp PhotosTMZ has obtained two photos of James Holmes from his time as a camp counselor at Camp Max Straus, which is run by Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles.

A counselor who worked with James the summer of 2008 tells TMZ ... he seemed like everyone else and hung out with the other counselors. He described James by saying you "wouldn't be able to tell he was a killer," adding, "He was cool. I never would have thought he could kill anybody. He never was anything but nice."

0722_james_holmes_wm__arrow_subRandy Schwab, chief executive of Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles and director of Camp Max Straus, told the LA Times that James was responsible for “the care and guidance of a group of approximately 10 children" and added, "He was a counselor that had no incidents or disciplinary concerns. That summer provided the kids a wonderful camp experience without incident."

I'm sure we are going to find lots of pictures of him doing many different things accompanied by quotes from people saying how normal he seemed. Do we need an article about each one?

TMZ, I realize that this is the biggest story out there so you have to report on it. But I would greatly appreciate if you would go the Virginia Tech route with this. Show pictures and report on the victims, not the killer. And when you do talk about him... STOP saying his name, call him the shooter or the killer.


There is absolutly no reason we need to see camp photos of him. Show pictures of the 27 year old Alex Sullivan that died on his birthday. Or 6 year old Veronica Moser-Sullivan. Because those faces and people should be the ones remembered, not this psycho.


Five years from now I would really like to have forgotten this :bleeps: name. But you continuously drumming it into my head is making that less likely.

TMZ WHAT'S WITH THE LINE "That summer provided the kids a wonderful camp experience without incident. I'm so disgusted right now, have some respect! What's with the obsession of running his picture all the time? What about the victims? Harvey the lawyer in you is coming out!
