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."

It's it time to start shunning these low life s*** who go on rampages instead of plastering their pictures and telling us their life story. I don't give a crap about this guy and the less I hear about him the better. We've learned nothing from the past so why keep giving these s***bags more attention than they deserve.

The media is gonna turn this nut into a celebrity and give him exactly what he wanted. Enough of every little pic of him. I can only imagine all the dumb tv movies that'll be made about him. You know Lifetime already must be casting theirs. Ughhh

Melinda--their faces, stories are all over the news networks--both those who died, and those in the hospital. Some in the hospital say they are talking to the news people, to get the attention off the shooter. Their families very much want to tell their stories.

George Zimmerman is Jewish & Catholic, what does religion have to do with being a psychopathic murderer? Unless you're a scientologist? sorry tom cruise couldn't resist lol

TMZ, please stop now. I have not read any of these articles about this murderer's private life. While I agree the victims and their families need to be left alone to process through this tragedy, putting up unending articles about the murder's dating life, high school life, camp life, ad nauseum is an insult to those victims. Who cares about this person's life past and present - all you are doing is glorifying him.

Who gives a ****. Really this guy was and is a Monster. And you are turning him into a celebrity. Screw that...this thing should never be given the time of day let alone the publicity. No One cares why he did this. He is a broken little boy that will never be fixed, he should never be allowed to rejoin society. I have no use for him other that that of hog feed (and no I dont live on a farm). Where are the stories of the heroes that night...the ones that took a bullet to protect the loved ones. Why did this happen because people were too much of a coward to rush him and put a stop to this. Instead they hid and allowed children to be hurt so they could get a good shot of this tragedy on their cell phone. Shame on you, shame on all the media. Shame on the people that allowed fear to rule their actions that night. They were tested and failed.

All anyone needs is something to trigger a snap in the brain, there's a cold heartless monster hidden in the most unlikely places..the question is what made this guy break?

There you go, see, just a regular, normal, person...likely well raised by nice parents...why does everyone want to paint him evil...just a kid that snapped and obviously was bent on being Heath Ledger from a movie. Did Ledger not get a Oscar for this.
