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."

Eh, all that comes to mind is Ted Bundy (even tho he was a serial killer), but he was the same kind of guy. Smart, considerably "good" and normal, but, for some reason or another, he was motivated to kill innocent people. The profile fits with this guy... and, I mean, it's completely sad for the innocent people who were caught in the wildfire of this guy's personal implosion.

And Adolf Hitler was a camp counselor too. It was called the Nazi Party. Yes, the Nazi party in it's early days where all campy and social and had picnics and played games.

Please stop showing this guy. Camp? Wait until we get a copycat who wants his face on TMZ. Can't you just call him the murderer or the terrorist and keep his face off you site?
It's interesting, Hollywood dresses people in hoodies when they want to show some type of criminal behavior, yet they stand up and protest when someone in a hoodie is mistaken for a criminal.

Hollywood embraces guns and murderers, yet wants gun control when an idiot tries to duplicate their movies.

Why are putting up photos of this monster? Who cares what he did in the past. He's a cold blooded murderer and what a disgrace to keep showing pictures of this idiot. For once, be considerate of the families that lost loved ones and quit showing pictures of this guy. How inconsiderate!!!!

Who the F cares about what this sociopathic homicidal douche did before he killed people!?!?!! TMZ's coverage, and the rest of the stupid media, are the EXACT reason this asshat did what he did, to get the pleasure of killing people and the fame that came with it. STOP already, these victims and what they did everyday of their lives, and the people who loved them and who they loved, THEY are the news story. Enough already...I'm not even reading another story on your website. I don't support companies that support homicidal maniacs! bleck

This country has zero provisions for mental health hospitalizations. We have closed them all down. The lawyers in this country who are running congress apparently think we dont need them. I guess prison is where they want the mentally ill placed after they commit an atrocity. Dollars should be spent on mental health not lining the pockets of shark lawyer politicians! So sad to see this happen the kid obviously was insane to do this.
