Court is very scary for people that obey the law. People strike each other all the time without knowing each others names. Gangs do drive-byes and no one can identify individuals.
People are crazy! Suing only works if you know who did it.
I was randomly punched by a man on the bus once. Split my lip. I would have loved to take the fucker to court, but the simple fact of the matter is he walked off the bus in the confusion.
Yet you hear NOTHING of these obnoxious twats being accosted.

This wouldn't be a random situation though, its at an organized event, with a lot of witnesses, likely with police nearby in case things get out of hand.  I have heard stories of them being accosted, and it either ends with a court settlement, or it was done by the police pulling them over before they made it to the funeral and purposefully wasting their time.

And the first comedian to make a shitty, unfunny joke about Aurora is....

Dane Cook!

As if people needed another reason to despise Dane Cook. I think what I find most shocking about this is the fact Dane Cook is still relevant enough to garner media attention.

Maybe he can find out first hand why he should not make these shit comments.

He'd actually earned a decent amount of good will from me after his Louie appearance (one of my favorite episodes of that show).  I still didn't think he was funny but it was cool of him to do that.  This pretty much wipes that out, so I'm back to despising the piece of shit.

I actually liked a lot of Dane's stuff in the past, and I've never wanted to jump on the Dane-hating bandwaggon...but shit that's just horrid.

Unfortunately, tragedies like this tend to bring opportunistic assholes out the woodwork. I remember that shitbird Jack Thompson trying to make the media rounds after the VA Tech shootings.

Yeah, a little, so of course Jack Thompson had to complete his full-on transformation from Attention Whore to Even-Tiniest-Modicum-of-Relevancy Whore. I wrote about it at the time:

Wow, until just a while ago when I read that I wasn't even aware hat he'd have room to wiggle his way inside the story. Astounding.

Two tech guys will tell Denver area moviegoers, “Tonight, the movie’s on us.”

Quote
In the wake of the Aurora theater shooting, many people are hesitant to return to the box office.

Two Denver area techies are planning a night to help locals take back the movies.

Jason Cole and David Mayer, members of the New Tech monthly tech meetup group, will be purchasing tickets and handing them out at theaters in Aurora and the greater metro area on Saturday, Aug. 11.

“We’re going to go to as many theaters as we can and pay for everyone’s movie tickets,” they say. “Our message is simple: “Tonight, the movie’s on us. Go, enjoy. This isn’t a fundraiser, it’s not a memorial service. Some jerk tried to steal a night of fun from all of us. Tonight, we’re giving it back.”

They’re seeking donations to help pay for the tickets, and volunteers to hand out the free passes. For more information, visit Take Back the Movies.
