Overnight, a gunman opened fire during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises at the Aurora Town Center Century 16 movie complex. At this writing (and these numbers could well change, and change soon), fourteen people are confirmed dead, with an estimated fifty wounded, some said to be in critical condition. We'll continue to update this story. In the meantime, here are some early videos from YouTube, including cell phone footage that appears to have been shot at the scene of this shocking crime.

Update: Here are photos of the shooter, James Holmes, 24:

Just like Jared Lee Loughner, this shooter was "A Law Abiding Gun Owner" ...

 

... right up to the moment he pulled the trigger!

 

NRA refrain -- don't take our precious pistols away, we're "law abiding gun owners".

This police psyop event was so 13 hours ago. Ir's Friday. I think I will see a fun movie. How about The Dark Knight Rises? I hear the special effects are killer. Sources say the police had a hand in the special effects of this movie.

Another wacky CU student and police dupe freaks out. No surprise. Too bad he did not finish school.  He could have helped the victims of police brutality and police pys ops like this event. I wonder if he smoked a lot of pot? iYou know those wacky CU kids like them some wacky weed. That is when they are not involved in police psy ops like this event was.

This clown is seems to be part of an Internet gang stalking group. He is not police that is for sure.

 

Notice the 666 on his handle. Wooooooo, so scary. I better run like in in this song: http://tinyurl.com/4n7v47w

 

The movie has a nice beat that you can dance to.

The special effects were super realistic. It's like it was really happening. Oh wait, it was really happening. Nevermind.

 

This thing was most likely carried out by intelligence agencies and the alleged shooter a dupe. The whole thing was carried out police style in the most corrupt county in the USA.

 

The witness reports right after the shooting say multiple shooters which the police quickly covered-up.

Wow, you know how much this type of advertising costs? I will  see the movie now. Great job marketing department. I will make it a point to go to the movies today. What fun!

 

The alleged shooter was in black uniform with tear gas and shooting unarmed people sitting down. If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and looks like a duck it it is probably police gang.

Just yesterday we were writing of what a waste Aurora and Arapahoe county have become .

Carole Chambers plays such a major role in the spiraling decline of Arapahoe county that people like myself,  lost money on a house just to get the hell away from Chambers and that county.

Aurora making international news AGAIN !

AWESOME job, Carole !

This has police psy op written all over it. The alleged shooter did exactly what police do all the time. Dress all in black, use tear gas and shoot unarmed people sitting down. I would say this is a typical Friday in Aurora, Colorado. Take note of the women interviewed who are laughing and people wearing their work badges. .Why would someone wear their work ID at a midnight movie?

Immediately after the shooting witnesses say multiple shooters but the police insist only one shooter. I do not believe the "official" story at all.  Another place reported that the shooter was mad because he could not get tickets. Yeah right. Reports say the shooting was timed to the minute with the movie. The clown who did the shooting is a police dupe in my opinion.

 @WhoCares I bet you wouldn't say that in public, because you're a fucking coward.  Mommy didn't love you enough, I guess, or daddy left because he realized what a sad sack you are. Your life is probably such a sad story that it makes you feel better to make light of a tragedy like this.  I sincerely hope you get the help that you so desperately need.  

 

EVERYONE, PLEASE IGNORE THIS SAD, PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING.  DON'T RESPOND TO HIS COMMENTS.  DON'T LIKE HIS INSANE POSTS.

 @juan_leg You notice our comments were deleted yesterday? Spooky. Another fun filled night in Aurora, Colorado. The goon took a page out of the SWAT team manual on this one. Police do this sort of thing all the time right down to the ugly black uniforms.

" such a sad story"

 

My life turned around for better the day I started taking police gangs to court. This was a police action all the way. The alleged shooter is a police controlled dupe.

 

"DON'T RESPOND TO HIS COMMENTS."

 

Yet you respond like a baby throwing a tantrum and shouting by using all caps. Is your specialty calling straight people "faggots" and using all caps? Do you hate all homosexuals and heterosexuals or just homosexuals?

 

You are part of a gang stalking group. I doubt you are from the USA. You clowns all post the same.

 

Let's get back to the facts.

 

Witnesses say multiple shooters. The police gangs insist only one. The police were there immediately and casually arrest the suspect who offered no resistance. Witnesses wearing work badges interviewed by news media. Females laughing while telling what they saw to news reporters.Took place in the most corrupt police county in the USA.

 

My conclusion is that this event was organized by police usinf the alleged shooter as a duke.

 

You are free to come to your own conclusions.

 

this is excellent advertising for the movie. I was not not going to see it but now I just have to see it. Anybody recommend a place and time to see the movie tonight?

 

Perhaps a midnight showing?

Trained SWATZis would have had a much higher kill ratio.

 

A theater packed with 100+ people and only 15 dead ?

 

This loser was a failure at everything.

 @Tangible666 Lol, actually I am straight. The responses are classic. Seeing as how Denver is a very pro-gay town the "faggot" comment is hilarious. Let's keep the jokes goin!

 

I guess people were "just dying" to see the movie.

 

The main actor is drop dead handsome.

 

First movie goer: You don't look too well today. Second movie goer: No, I'm dead on my feet.

Police lovers always have feces on their minds. They like to wallow in it.

 

All evidence and initial eye witness accounts indicate a police psyop.

 @DonkeyHotaylol, that is all you have. Trying to deflect from the facts.

 

The fact is the witnesses on the live video all said multiple shooters. The alleged shooter was in SWAT gear and used police style tactics  including shooting unarmed people and children.

 

Let's take a look at Randy Weaver:

Police murdered his wife and unborn kid. That is what police gangs do.

 

This was a police operation in the most corrupt county in the USA.

Truth suppression technique number five:

 

"Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down."

 

The grand event was a police psy op all the way.

Using the 17 Methods of Truth Suppression again. The police tell the opposite of what the live video was indicating.

 

Let's see how long you can avoid posting in all caps.

 

All caps indicates obsessive/compulsive behavior, lack of boundaries, narcissistic personality disorder, immaturity and violent tendencies.

 

Here is what police thugs and their supporters engage in all the time:

Nope, the live video feed indicated otherwise. Live video can't lie because it is live.

 

Now the police spin comes that is contrary to the live footage.

 

Way to post in all caps to shout. Shows the same lack of self control as the police dupe.

 

This was a police psy op all the way.

 @WhoCares 

 

You LIE.

 

The MAJORITY said no such thing.

 

Eye-witness testimony during an excited, panicked, life-death situation is less reliable than flipping a coin.

WhoCares
WhoCares

The majority said there were multiple shooters immediately after they saw what happened.That is a fact.

 

Most people sent to prison illegally were done so by police officers lying and/or planting evidenc and not false eye witness accounts.

 

I am not sure if you saw the first news reports but they were live and all the people said multiple shooters.

 

I believe this to be a police psy op. You are free to come to your own conclusions.

Shows why eye-witness testimony is so unreliable, and why so many innocent people are in prison based upon faulty eye-witness testimony.

He did manage to finish college and start med school. That makes him a winner with wacky weed lover crowd. With his college degree and and love of violence he was a perfect candidate for police officer. Looks like he chose to work with the police in a grand manner. I wonder if he went to public schools? He definitely has the public school uber violent police mentality.

The alleged shooter was used as a dupe is what I am saying.
