    Long-story short. 24 year old from San Diego, CA decked out in Full Riot gear set off smoke bombs about 30 minutes into the movie The Dark Knight Rises and opens fire on people. 10 dead so far, 50 wounded so far. Police are looking into his alleged booby-trapped apartment for assault rifles, shotguns, explosives.

    I hope I got all the important facts right. There's more like how he was a former medical student from Colorado. The simple fact that he's from CA bothers me a lot.

    Why does it matter where he's from. Anybody in an unstable mindset can go out or develop a want to nonsensicaly kill people. I'm from San Diego myself but I've never had the thoughts to want to kill or commit mass murder.

    No matter where this person is from it is sad to see this type of thing. my question is what could have set this person off to do such carnage to people he did not even know.

    That is terrible. But I have the same question has DeadEye, what caused him to do this? And OP; There is physco-paths from every state, why does it matter that he's from CA? I can't stress enough the fact of how awful this is.

    I heard the gas made it Hard for
    People to move so they were defenseless. I think that's really sad and scary. Imagine being In that situation where you see people around you being shot and killed and you may be next but you can't even move. That's just plain scary to think about

    Some people are prone to shock when something tragic happens to them. This might be the thing that set it off. Unless the assailant issues a statement himself, there is no way anyone can tell you what happened.

    I know this isn't the focus but it's dirtbags like this that's going to get firearms and eventually Airsoft banned for all of us. But the real deal here is that this guy no longer deserves a place on this earth.

    So I don't know if anyone has been staying up to date or following the news on the suspect but apparently he thought he was The Joker.

    I read he also dyed his hair red, which just says more about how messed up in the head he is. I also read something on how CNN is blaming video games for his violence...

    What a horrible person. Here come the anti gun attacks…..

    I thought he was from Denver, though?

    He dyed his hair red to be like the joker, supposedly. Am I the only one who realizes that the joker’s hair is green?

    Edit: sniped!

    It's a part of the Who What When Where Why and How. Stating where the suspect is from doesn't automatically make everyone from that location a gun wielding mass murderer and I'm sure FSTK is not insinuating that at all. It's just a detail.
    I'm not sure on the exact wording James Holmes used when he said he was the Joker, but that could mean he literally thinks he is the Joker from the batman movies, or he is him and just calls himself the Joker just as others may have names for themselves. Doesn't necessarily mean he thought he was that character. He could very well have just borrowed the name. I guess we'll never know.

    Sniped? Really? Such appropriate use of terminology.
    Just kidding. I've already made a joke or two... or 3. Ok, maybe 4.

    I will agree with you guys that this dudes mind was very messed up.. Since we are sort of discussing details I belive the particular male was a student of medical school. I have heard he was hired by al-queda but that theory was kinda tossed to the back burner since he didn't kill himself. I also heard he was trying to kill his ex. Who knows.. But seriously.. 14-15 deaths 50+ wounded.. Wow, sad! The (insert words here) guy should not be killed quick with lethal injection if you ask me.

    Sorry if I seem rude here, but would (if you're not just trying to get attention) tell us what happened.
