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.

Dont let him do it! Give him a nice, padded cell so he can live it out the rest of his miserable existence rotting away. Death is too kind

Because of liberals like Obama, we can't simply burn this worm alive. That would be justice.

Put some stank on it! I like how he masterminded an elaborate murder scene, but can't even commit suicide right.

Don't let him kill himself. He needs to stay alive so he can receive what he deserves, the death penally. Killing himself gets him off too easy. He needs to feel the anticipation of death. Rot in hell

It's weird to me how he was saved from trying to kill himself only to turn around and (likely) be put on death row so he can killed by the same guys who saved him.

Let him do it himself. That way the blood is on his hands, not the taxpayers'.

why is this FREAK under Celebrity Justice? Is he still playing the Joker and wants to do a hospital scene now? I say let him play it only with no weapons but a SWAT team to take care of business and safe the taxpayers of Colorado some money.
