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.

He isn't built for prison life. Most criminals have had really hard lives which "prepared" them for prison. James is just a prick who had a good life and unlimited potential who wanted attention. He planned everything to a "t" except his demise. Dumb ass!!

It's only big business keeping an inmate alive when the taxpayers foot the bill.
