A man in riot gear walked into a movie theater near Denver and opened fire during a screening of "Dark Knight Rises".

He started shooting during a gunfight sequence in the film, and so most of the audience didn't even realize they were being shot at until he followed up his first volley with tear gas.

Updates are still rolling in.

Deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those njured and killed.

He wasn't a member of the NRA nor did he serve in the military. He had no hunting or fishing license. He had just left med school a month before.

He needs a one-way trip to Arkham.  This was not a 4-D movie and physical effects were completely unnecessary.


 


And they say kids mindlessly act out movies.... *sigh*

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

I was at this theater just yesterday afternoon buying popcorn after a trip to the credit union and Aurora Library.  It's attached to the largest mall in Aurora, in a very concentrated mixed use population hub a block away from the Aurora Judicial Center and the largest police station in the area.  The gunman knew what he was doing when he picked this theater to have an impact on the youth population in the entire Denver metro area.  Police from all the surrounding cities were called to the incident.  I was up until 5 am watching the coverage.  Those poor kids . . .

But rather than reducing the gunman to a pile of ash, he'll be wined and dined and studied at our expense because the death penalty is inhumane.

Is there any chance that we can let the dead be buried before we all start riding our personal hobby-horses?

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

Fiat justitia, ruat caelum
