You can't make a political point from this at all. Nobody sane has ever done something like this, so it stands to reason you can't make sense of it.

Bullshit. The guy had some kind of motive and reasoning, regardless of how screwed up it was. I don't beleive (at this time) that those reasons have anything necessarily to do with anything political. And yes, both sides are jumpong to conclusions way too early. But they are pundits and assholes, and that is their jobs.

I am glad they took him alive, so we can find out what that was, and he can be prosecuted and go to jail for his crimes.

By the way, who's ready the TSA at their local theatre.

That's not going to happen.

Annnnnnd the media is off to a fine start, finding time to blame Trekkies and violent video games.


I really hate asshats like that, that blame stuff on video games, movies etc.  there are crazy unstable people out there and terrible stuff happens. That is life. Whenever anyone tries to blame games or movies for horrible things I always quote the David cross response to that: "what video games did Hitler play?"

I agree.  TSA will not show up at your local movie house anytime soon.  I could see some beefed up security at some of the larger theaters in the bigger cities.  Maybe even something like what they have at some concert venues with a quick step through a metal detector handled by private security.  They were talking on the news here locally about the Sheriff's Office having an increased presence at theaters this weekend (in case of copycats), but the theater I usually go to already has off duty law enforcement hired to be there at night.

Yeah, probably one of those people who thinks that if you put on a purple shirt and a black sports coat, dye your hair red and put a lot of black eye shadow on, it makes you "The Joker" . n00b.

Finally heard from my non-forum Denver friends.  Everyone's ok. Most didn't go last night (were going tonight) and the ones who did go were at a different theater.

Because that theater sucks and the image on the screen isn't that great and they have sound issues.  That's what my Aurora friend told me at least.

I've heard too that it's just a bad area for crime.

If only Doc were here, I'm sure he'd have a sane and rational response to all of this.

He never did come back did he?  I wonder if they forgot to unban him after his one day time-out.

Maybe he is like Beetlejuice or Bloody Mary and you have to say his name three times to make him appear.

Its true.  My wife & I saw a movie there one time we were out there.

That part I don't remember too clearly from when we were there.  But then again "bad" for there might "normal" for Brockton, MA.

so no one is blaming the gangster squad trailer for the events?  have to say this is sort of what i thought of immediately i wonder how quickly that trailer will be pulled.

i liked dark knight rises but it had its share of problems and was nowhere near dark knight for me.
