So Much For the “Insanity Defense”

Not that we believe for one solitary second that whichever scumsucking, lowlife attorney defending the Aurora beast won’t try it, because that’s what they are and it’s what they do. Everything within their power to set animals loose back in the wild to commit more mayhem.

But it may be an uphill battle to make it work in court:

According to police sources, the same suspect who would not tell police a motive for the shooting did tell them that if they went to his apartment they might find explosives. Holmes didn’t mention it was a trap.

Investigators now believe that Holmes used a timer to set off loud techno music at the apartment just before midnight. It was meant to spur a noise complaint to police. The ruse theoretically would have drawn them into the apartment building, detonating a firebomb and then drawing all available police and rescue units to the other side of town before the shooting at the theater started. That would have allowed him more time to kill more people and left a much smaller police response to the theater shootings.

Yep, that sure sounds to us like a spur-of-the-moment psychotic meltdown brought about by cold toilet seats, Republican elementary school teachers and insufficient “access” to free healthcare. Not.

For all that planning, all that thinking about how to kill and all those questions that have been raised, police said Holmes isn’t talking.

Not trying to tell you how to do your jobs here, but that’s just because you’re not asking him the right way, if you get our drift. You do, after all, have a booby-trapped apartment on your hands in dire need of being disarmed, and we’re ever so sure that the smirking little devil would be more than happy to provide you with the information you need if he were just — motivated properly.

Drop us a note if you need a few pointers. We’d be happy to help. And in reply to your question before you even ask it: We’d sleep just fine afterwards, thank you very much.

Thatisall.

Look at my post on this. Sure, spur of the moment went batshit.

I think he is the proper person to disarm the bomb. If he does it he can stand trial, if not……….

Rep. Allen West would get all the info needed in less than ten seconds.

I’d gladly lend him my XD-40 for the job.

We shouldn’t be having this conversation. We should be talking about the CHL holder that put two in this maniac’s temple about seven seconds after it started. Colorado is a state that actually allows licensed concealed carry, but the theater is a ‘gun-free zone’, and the only one armed was the assailant. Anyone ever wonder why these kinds of things… Read more »

This is a perfect example of why I carry everywhere, at all times, and I ignore “no guns” signs. No one will know I have unless I need it, and if I need it I don’t care if anyone gets upset that I have it.

Colorado has CC laws, and permits the carrying of a weapon for your protection and those of others. I am ashamed to admit this, as I tend to have more faith in my fellow beings than I should, but in spite of having a CC, I rarely carry, because the laws here are conflicting and obtuse. Ferinstance, you can’t carry… Read more »

OK, I imagine I could perhaps take him out under the circumstances even unarmed–though I might be carrying some handy little blade. Anyhow, his gear would seem to significantly limit visibility. Smoke could be a problem, but he can’t see through it either. He’s intent on shooting fleeing people, not expecting someone to approach. I have more of a plan,… Read more »

The question I have about that is what exactly could you have done? Yeah, I know, take the guy out. But think about this for a minute. It is dark in the theater. What if there were several of you with guns, each thinking they were going to take out the threat of someone with a gun. How do you… Read more »

Call me an Alex Jones conspiracy moron but this does have the cowinkydink factor here: 1) Obongo the Kenyan Klingon Fucker™ is a floating turd in the polls right now and needs to talk about something else and, 2) the UN Gun Ban treaty is due to be signed by Hillary the Gorgon.

This goob set those traps. He should be forced to disarm them. If he refuses, then it will have to be done the hard way. Pour Tobasco on a rat tail file. Shove it up his little pecker. And throw him into his apartment through his back window.

Imagine for a moment there are several of you armed and in the theater. You don’t know each other, and it is dark. You also don’t know how many other perps are in this theater. This guy is shooting at anything that moves towards an exit. He stops shooting to reload. That is when EVERYONE is trying to make a… Read more »

I’ve refrained from adding in my $.02 worth until some more facts came out about this massacre committed by James Holmes…and I can only come to the (maybe paranoid) conclusion that a lot of things involved here don’t add up and don’t pass the smell test for me. Questions include: * Where did James get his bomb-making training? Mr. Holmes… Read more »

Or an even scarier thought, what if this was another “Fast & Furious” type operation designed to get a hue and cry going for greater gun control…if they did it once, why not again?

God let’s pray it’s not, that, I am afraid, would most certainly set off CW 2.0

In the civilian world, there ARE no acceptable risks. I utterly reject that notion. There most definitely are acceptable risks. By your logic no one should ever carry a weapon or defend themselves or others because there is always an element of risk. If the choice is to cower helplessly while I or the people around me are murdered, doing… Read more »

If I risk taking friendly fire while trying to take out a bad guy, that’s a risk I am willing to take.

I know they’re supposed to have cut back on this sort of thing, but when I was going to college, the credit card companies were practically giving their cards away!

It’s possible that he is schizophrenic, which doesn’t usually manifest itself until around the early-to-mid 20s. It’s possible that he was a bit “off” but not enough to warrant therapy or meds. My cousin was known as “weird Mike” for most of his childhood, but he didn’t DO anything until he was in his mid 20s. That’s when his schizophrenia… Read more »

I guess my perspective is a bit smaller than the rest. I don’t really give a shit about saving the lives of everyone in a theater in which an armed maniac starts blasting away. All I care about is protecting my wife. If the guy points a gun in her direction, I’ll kill him if I can. I don’t much… Read more »

Having read Emperor’s well reasoned argument against a conspiracy theory; I think I probably let my paranoid side run away with me, it’s just in the wake of Fast & Furious, it’s becoming all too easy to credit the gov. with such operations… Then there’s the “somebody’s going to blab” angle which always bugs even the most elaborate of conspiracies,… Read more »
