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.

Try harder
next time.
He managed
to take the time
to strategically figure
out how to kill as many
people in a short period of
time as possible, surely he
can do better than falling backwards
off his bed that's likely only one or two
feet high.

Why is this never the FIRST thing they try, long before anyone else gets hurt or dies?

I hope he does not kill himself. Let him live every second of his life in pain and misery. It's obvious that he wants out because it's so bad. Force him to live here in Hell.

He didn't give people a chance to decide if they wanted to live or die. Once again he wants to take control and do what he wants. They should do everything they can to prevent it from happening. He needs to live with what he did. Death is the easy way out.

There exists no proof this man stepped one foot into or out of the theater. If there is, why is it being hidden? Why has evidence been tampered with? Instead of being so quick to believe the mainstream media, who gets all their story lines from 'one' controlling source, ask what is it that's not being shown to us. Those who want to push the death penalty have that right, but if this man proves to be NOT guilty years down the road, it should be mandatory that the accuser's lives be taken for irresponsibly sending an innocent man to his death. If laws were changed to make d*mn sure who they're sending to the gallows is guilty, there'd be more of an effort to conduct valid investigations & more protection given to those in law enforcement who have alternative information, but have their hands tied in fear of losing their jobs. Has no one on this site ever questioned "who ultimately benefits" from the heinous acts that are perpetuated on the people of this world? The victims deserve justice, and not just any warm body that was found in a car semi-conscious will suffice. They had to break the glass of the passenger side window to remove him. Every facet of our lives and thoughts are being manipulated. Shouldn't we be smarter than this?
