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 only he did this in the first place, without taking down 12 innocent people. Hate to say it but I guess suicide isn't always a bad thing...

What would have been really cool was if he caused some serious cervical spine injury and ended up paralyzed from the neck down, on a respirator for the many years left of his pathetic existence. Better luck next time, my man.

I'm confused... the United Supreme Court says it legal to kill your unborn child ["a women's right to control [HER?] body"] but a nutcase can't kill himself.
What's up with that?
BTW, that was just a attorney driven ploy to have him transferred out of the prison... and unfortunately it'll work FOR HIM. I'm sure there are some jailbirds and convicts reading this whol'll attest that they wouldn't get headlines or special treatment---24hr suicide watch and the beat goes on.

Imaginative, but clearly just attention seeking.
