'Batman' Massacre Victim

To Megadeth Singer:

Don't BLAME Obama!

EXCLUSIVE

Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine is an idiot ... because Barack Obama is not to blame for the Aurora massacre ... so says one of the people who was shot in the theater that night.

TMZ spoke with Carli Richards ... who sustained multiple gunshot wounds when James Holmes opened fire during a screening of "Dark Knight Rises" last month.

After watching the footage of Mustaine blaming Obama for "staging" the Aurora shooting to push an anti-gun agenda, Richards is lashing back ... telling us, "Some people think the President is a good scapegoat but he didn't shoot me."

Richards adds, "It’s obviously kind of absurd and people who make up conspiracies just want attention."

"Everybody is emotional at this time and needs to blame somebody I guess. I don’t think they realize the consequences of not being responsible for your own actions and James Holmes needs to be held accountable for his, to whatever way the justice system deems fit."

Carli Richards i feel bad for what happend to you and all but you have no idea what the F***K your talking about. There is something much more bigger here that you dont understand. What he is trying to say is that The Obama Administration know something they dont want you to know for instance "inconsistencies that do not fit with the official narrative, including numerous eyewitness reports of multiple shooters at both incidents".

Have any of you dip****s even thought about the possibility that governments utilize false-flag operations to push their agendas? Of course not, you are on TMZ after all. I like how you dullards make tin-foil hat & Kool-Aid references when someone points out a botched false flag without even looking into anything, You think its funny that everyone is dying of cancer? You think its funny that our government has been hijacked by an international banking cartel? You think its funny that fertility is at an all time low? You think its funny that the government poisons your water with fluoride? You think its funny that the Obama administration was caught red handed in a false flag (Fast and Furious) against the second amendment that resulted in the deaths of both American and Mexican citizens? Of course you think its funny, its easier to laugh it up and be a dumbass than it is to inform yourself. So go ahead, put your feet up and only concern yourself with what the Kardashians are up to.

I usually vote more left there are some big issues I lean right I think as many do. This butthole coming out and saying the President arranged this is beyond stupid and pathetic.the guy has not made one move before this happened to bring up gun legislation,so he arranges for a man to kill babies in a movie to start to?and right before an election too many bong hits in the 80s I guess he drank the water as well.. this makes as much sense as the crazy left people who say Bush was behind the 9/11 murders..It use to be the big rock legends went against the more uptight guess not with this fool.instead of having normal debate and conversations fox news gave rise to stupidity like this,sadly more fools will believe him..
