James Holmes

Summer Camp Photos

7/22/2012 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

Sick of all of you people thinking you know what James Holmes wants. He has a serious mental illness and needs help.

I think a lot of people miss the...fortunate aspect of this. While what happened in Aurora was one of the worst things that I have ever heard about in my lifetime, the fact that he is still alive is what marvels me. When you think about all other shooters, mass murderers, and killers, they all kill themselves. They all have no hope left so they take as many people with them as they can and then just end it. Holmes didn't. Why? and I think that is why he has turned in to this "celebrity". as unfortunate as it may be....I believe that is the reason. The victims are and will always be more important than the monsters, but this monster is still here.
