Somebody please tell me, we aren't getting NUTCASES coming out of the woodwork doing this for a thrill and a headline? This is what happens when you SENSATIONALIZE a killer.

Check those numbers, TMZ. I believe he shot 59, but the total of injured is due to the crowd trying to evacuate. Thus the total number injured is 70 but not shot.

CANADIAN LIBERAL!    

ATTN TMZ STAFF: I keep reading peoples posts on different forums about how this could have been prevented if someone would have reported James Holmes issues to authorities. I had a family member who was a danger to herself and society, but we were not able to get her help because the system is not designed to deal with impending issues, only once something has gone wrong is it generally dealt with. Can you please explore just how hard it is for a family member to obtain help for a mentally unstable family member or friend. As it turned out, it took her almost dying from a 2nd suicide attempt for authorities to take her case serious. I know of a few other individuals who I fear are very likely at some point to maliciously harm others without reason. They are gun owners, mentally unstable, and violent by nature. I have for sometime been tormented by the thought of what if they do hurt someone and it could be prevented. Why is it so hard to get help for others before a major mental incident?

You can't make me believe no one saw this coming. There are people around him who knew he was a bomb waiting to go off but no one stopped him. There are lots out there like that but for some ****ed up crazy reason they are allowed to get away with murder.
