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.

This is nothing that a good, sturdy belt and a hook bolted firmly into the ceiling of his cell won't cure.

Nah...letting him die would be too easy. Like someone else said before, let him into general population.

Why does anyone care if he offs himself? Corrections officers, leave a knife in the cell with him and don't bother him for 3 or 4 days.

May he spend the rest of his life (and I wish him a really, really long one!) trying and failing to kill himself! May be become partially paralyzed so he can't even hold himself to piss and has to wear a catheter! May he constantly be in pain and mental anguish. May he never have a good night's sleep. May he be abused by fellow inmates and humiliated and raped. May he burn in Hades for eternity.

Why are they stopping him? Now we have to pay for the paper they use to fill out the accident report...Just let him die...I'll pay for the cremation myself...beats paying taxes for him to live the lap of luxury in a prison.

I agree, let the general population have him. I just hope he gets to be someone's girlfriend before they finish the job.

Look how many of you are on here preaching violence. You're no better off. What a shame and waste of energy that could be spent helping someone who needs it or doing something positive for the world. I can't believe I have to share the country with people like you. I can't believe there are men and women putting their lives on the line daily for people like you. Before you respond with some type of shallow comment remember this: EVERYONE...and that means EVERYONE is entitled to a fair trial as guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment!

I would not be upset to hear of his death... however if he does kill himself while in custody-his family will sue for not protecting him, and receive monetary compensation undoubtedly, and that will be a final insult to those he killed - without ever having been given the justice of a guilty verdict.
