James Holmes -- the shooter in the Aurora movie theater massacre -- was hospitalized after several "half-hearted" suicide attempts ... this according to law enforcement.

According to cops, Holmes ran headfirst into a jail cell wall on Tuesday ... and while he sustained injuries ... they were not life-threatening.

Holmes also reportedly stood on the bed in his cell and fell backwards ... in an apparent attempt to crack his skull open. He failed.

Holmes -- who killed 12 people and injured 58 more during his July 20 shooting rampage -- has since been released from the hospital.

If they let him, it would save the taxpayers a lot of money.

That's great. It must mean he's miserable and suffering.

Don't even take him to the hospital, just leave him in there in his failed attempt to suffer in the pain.

I don't really care that the *bleep* got a boo boo. I just thought I would mention to anyone who was thinking about donating to the victims fund that today is the last day to do so.

I have solutions for his two half hearted attempts. (1) Ran headfirst into his cell wall.....put him in a smaller cell. (2) Stood on his bed and fell backwards.....put his mattress on the floor.

put him on the row, pad his cell and make him wait everyday knowing that he's a dead man... he shouldn't get the satisfaction of ending his life to escape what he's done.

They need to pad up his cell and make him live out his entire sentence. He needs to suffer for every person he terrorized that night.
