James Holmes

The Bizarre Mug Shot

7/23/2012 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James Holmes mug shot
Officials in Colorado have just released James Holmes' mug shot -- showing the "Dark Knight Rises" shooter in an orange jumpsuit ... with a crazed look in his eyes. 

The photo was taken Friday afternoon ... just hours after the 24-year-old opened fire in a movie theater ... killing 12 people and injuring 58 more.

Holmes appeared in court Monday morning ... with the same odd look on his face.

Holmes is facing first degree murder charges. Prosecutors said they will consider pursuing the death penalty.

BS. I've known several people with pain killer addictions and none wired their homes with explosives! He is an evil person who planned to take the lives of innocent people in that theater.

Don't Turn Aurora Killer Into Celebrity. Focus on the victims, not the killer; we know what he looks like. I want to see photos of the people that matter. I want to learn about those we lost.

It is obvious to me that His mug shot was taken and also released on Monday, the same day he was in court. His FACIAL HAIR is also the same. I wonder why they didn't take one on Friday the day he was arrested like most criminals, he was also wearing an orange prison shirt, most mug shots are taken with the same clothes the criminal is wearing. The whole thing is strange... Bizzare

Oh NO    

That is not the same person in the picture that was originally released. Unless he got a nose job and was wearing contacts in the original picture. This is some scary sh*t folks.
