James Holmes info the media wants from CU and isn't getting

James Holmes.
While CU is able to refute misinformation in the James Holmes case (like prosecution claims he was banned from campus for threats), the school has otherwise been banned from releasing most other info.

Not all, though. For instance, the school is sharing what media outlets want -- and aren't going to get anytime soon.

Other institutions with which Holmes communicated aren't under a gag order, including the University of Illinois, which accepted Holmes's 2010 application for a neuroscience program he ultimately chose not to attend. In response to Freedom of Information Act inquiries from the News-Gazette, the school released a slew of documentation on view below, plus a photo showing him wearing dark glasses while posing near just such an animal. Here's a screen capture of the latter:

The photo James Holmes provided with his University of Illinois application, as seen on The News-Gazette website.
As we noted earlier this month, there's no explanation in the News-Gazette article regarding whether the photo was related to any particular proposal, or if it was simply the equivalent of a non sequitur. But it definitely stuck in the memories of those at the university. An excerpt from the article:

Holmes visited the Urbana campus in March 2011 after he was unable to attend a February 2011 neuroscience open house. According to the UI documents, he met with several researchers while here. While arranging his itinerary, faculty and staff referred to him as "llama," in reference to a photo he submitted that showed him posing, grinning and wearing sunglasses, next to a llama.
Does CU have similar material in its archive? A slew of news organizations would like to find out, as is clear from a document listing media requests from the first couple of weeks after the July 20 Aurora theater shooting.

Outlets listed include the Associated Press, ABC, CBS, Fox News, NBC, CNN and more. Some of the requests are fairly general, including this one from the Wall Street Journal.

*Communications between faculty/admin/staff that mention Holmes 6/1/11 and 7/20/12 *Communications sent to/received by CU employees to/from Holmes *Disciplinary records re Holmes *Records documenting encounters between Mr. Holmes and CU law enforcement

Others are very specific. Take this, from 7News:

*CU e-mails with key words "James Holmes," "James Eagan Holmes," or "James E. Holmes" since 7/1/11 *E-mails sent/received from all Holmes e-mail accounts incl *JAMES.E.HOLMES@UCDenver.edu *JAMES.2.HOLMES@UCDenver.edu *James.JournalHolmes@UCDenver.edu *JamesNeuroSci.JournalHolmes@UCDenver.edu *Any other e-mail addresses used by Holmes

Judge William Sylvester has nixed such material from being made public at the present time -- although that hasn't stopped outlets from seeking out those willing to share details about incidents he's made off-limits. For instance, 7News quotes anonymous sources as saying that Dr. Lynne Fenton, ID'd as Holmes psychiatrist, discussed putting him on a mental health hold in June but ultimately decided not to do so.

Turns out that many of the public documents CU has been allowed to share on this page involve Fenton -- her employment file, her performance ratings going back to 2009, even the letter offering her a job. Also included are details about campus police procedures and the Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment team, or BETA, which Fenton helped found.

Still, such material is likely only a tiny portion of the documentation the university has pertaining to Holmes -- data that will likely remain obscured from public scrutiny for months, if not years, much to the media's chagrin.

Continue reading to see the Colorado Open Records Act requests to CU, as well as James Holmes's resume, references and acceptance letter from the University of Illinois.

I forgot to mention that Holmes last talk was on dopamine precursors which is way off topic with his previous stuff. As schizophrenia is, according to dogma, an excess of dopamine production in the brain and an excess of receptors on neurons in the limbic area of the brain, it would seem to indicate that HE thought that he was schizophrenic. Clozapine was supposedly designed as an antagonist or blocker of these receptors, but ended up agonising (stimulating) serotonin, antagonising noradrenalin, adrenalin, dopamine, acetylecholine and histamine. Not bad eh. Six instead of one. Still that's close? Great range of side effects too. Just the shot for an extreme masochist. BLOKES can start to lactate on antipsychotics. Just the shot for a bloke with a sexual identity problem, milk dribbling out of his nipples in a public dressing room. Body temperature regulation affected, pH, water, electolyte balance affected. The list goes on and on. If the patient believes he is being poisoned it is because he IS being poisoned.

Psychiatry, like all branches of medicine, loves to spit disorders up into individual syndromes according to their stage of advancement, with a drug for each stage. Looking at Holmes overall life it sounds to me like simply a stage of advancing paranoid schizophrenia. "Keep away from me" he says. He's is becoming terrified that he is going to 'lose his mind', ie go beserk and kill someone or a lot of people. Give him an antipsychotic and he'd gain a huge amount of weight, develop diabetes 2, become a manic depressive instead and shoot himself. A much more satisfactory outcome for society but not much chop for him.

Psychiatric diagnoses is the most hit and miss pseudosciene on Earth.  I look at a persons metabolism first. What looks like hyperthyroidism by his slim frame, his eyes and enlarged thyroid I'd reckon schizophrenia for sure.  He wouldn't take an antipsychotic as he'd  know how toxic they are. He'd reckon Fenton was trying to poison him. Lots of abuse, no REAL help whatsoever, and the outcome becomes totally inevitable. So why the Hell blame him? He was manufactured by stupidity, avarice, inequality, Milton bloody Freidman, Richard Dawkins, Freud, Billy Graham and everyone else. Phew!!!

Maybe the Uni is trying to fit Fenton up as the scapegoat, after all she was his shrink so she's an obvious target. What if Holmes was subject to ever worsening ridicule and bullying by peers AND tutors as he became more socially dysfunctional (cognitively impaired). He was in a very dog eat dog environment. Of course none would ever admit it He told a stranger he got into LSD. what if he had a really bad freak out in company and got ridiculed. "The great GURU is having a hard time is he." "Oh how bloody dreadful." Sarcasm sounds so much more threatening when extremely paranoid. Tall poppy syndrome.  What if he was Jesus up until that point, an LSD Jesus cult, with disciples, a la Jim Jones cult. His PhD peers. Then came crashing down.  WAAAAAY down..

Happened to me once. Took months to get over it. Felt the whole town was laughing at me. But I never saw the bloke who put the boot in again. What if Holmes' PhD peers were tripping with him at the time and THEY put the boot in. They were COMPETING with each other for the best jobs, labs. Dog eat dog. Intensely jealous of his academic achievement up to that point.  When LSD was legal and used to TREAT schizophrenia, the shrink tripped with the patient acting as his guide.  The idea being if he started to freak the shrink would calm him, assure him that he was not about to die, thus turning the freak out into a positive cathartic experience, a rebirth from former negative attitudes and beliefs.  So having the boot put in does the opposite. 

What I want to know was what he was eating and drinking. Combine Coca Cola with the big doses of paracetamol he was taking causing liver damage and you've got a lotta moodswing. Swig after swig after swig. Blood sugar high equals manic high. Come the crash, panic attacks, terror of impending death, going berserk etc.followed by suicidal depression at the inevitable prospect of going completely insane, which of course he did go, compliments of psychiatry. The worse the liver pathology the greater the Coke craving and the shorter the cycle.  'Manic Dysphoria' compliments of the DSM 4 to be further subdivided into ten more discrete pathologies in the DSM 5 each with it's OWN specific drug now in development.

I have a post with a list of questions (fully referenced) the MSM (Mainstream Media) has neglected to ask, which could shed an awful lot of light on this horrible tragedy.  You can read the post "Questions the MSM doesn't ask about James Holmes" at http://wp.me/p1mEWh-7P, which includes:1.  Why does the MSM report that James Holmes was acting crazy in jail, yet the local Colorado news station reports that he is completely normal?2.  Why do victims report that James Holmes methodically picked his victims, in contrast to the media's reports that he seemed to randomly spray gunfire?3.  According to news reports, James Holmes was an "outstanding marksman", however no one seems to be seeking out how he received this training?4. Why did the University of Colorado remove Dr Lynne Fenton's (James Holmes psychiatrist) web page, and not disclose that she had been reprimanded on 3 different occassions for ethical violations in prescribing psychotropic drugs, one of which James Holmes admitted to police he was on at the time of his arrest?  (The page reappeared but looks slightly different than the web archive page)  5.  Why does the prosecution admit, yet the MSM is not reporting, that James Holmes did NOT tell the police about the notebook, and that no one has seen the contents of the notebook (It is reported that he told police about it, and that there are stick figures shooting other stick figures).6. Why has the MSM largely not retracted the untrue story that James Holmes said he was "The Joker" to the police after his arrest? Please read the rest of the questions (fully referenced) at the post "Questions the MSM doesn't ask about James Holmes" at http://wp.me/p1mEWh-7P and then see if there is something ELSE going on here...

If only he could have been persuaded to go on an antipsychotic like Clozapine.  Then he could have become a morbidly obese manic depressive with type 2 diabetes, died of a ruptured bowel as a result of the constipation induced by the drug (and the drug induced obesity) or shot himself when his depression became unbearable.  Then everyone would have been happy except him as he be too dead to be happy.

I've followed this case pretty close. My opinion is that he didn't have the resources to pull off the shooting. My conclusion is that the shooting was an inside job. Hypothetically, if the government was moving towards trying to take away our constitutional rights(which IS happening through the patriot act and the NDAA act)...this kind of fear mongering and acts of "terrorism" would be all the ammo they need to tighten the noose.

They're hiding and being elusive , providing nothing more than recycled courtroom photos of a dazed looking Mr. Holmes.

I'm sure that forensics has discovered MANY were hit by police gunfire and Chambers used up ALL her favors when rescuing P. Sullivan & is in total panic .

The TRUTH is the Aurora cops went into the theater ALL GUNS BLAZING !!!

 @raymond.ingham Just different people seeing and interpreting things from their own perspectives, prejudices, the heat of the moment, journo's getting all the facts wrong, making things up to get a good story.  No conspiracies needed to account for conflicting stories..

 

Bear in mind that Holmes himself would have read vast amounts of conspiracy theories himself and believed them more and more as he became increasingly psychotic whilst the theories MADE him more psychotic.  What if he thought that he'd been 'mutated' himself, but being adopted, as a lot of the media suggests, couldn't find out who his natural mother was and if she'd been diagnosed as schizophrenic.  She may have been a homeless, schizophrenic, heroin and alcohol addicted prostitute, who gave Holmes up for adoption for all any body knows, even Holmes adopting mother.

 

So there would be tons of stuff to feed HIS conspiracy theories, that he he'd been turned into a 'sleeper' and the Vicodin tablet he took before the massacre had been substituted for with Daytura to turn him on.  About time people stopped blaming Holmes and started examining themselves, especially those baying for his blood AND feeding the paranoia of others on the edge..

 @Juan_Leg You yanks just don't seem to be able to trust your law enforcement officers one little bit.  Must be something they put into the water, the coppers that is.

 @Juan_Leg I'm not 'here' Juan, I'm sitting in a bush camp in a National Park in Australia, totally relaxed, guns the last thing on my mind.  However I do follow the US very intently and I am well aware of the atrocities committed by your govt. CIA, FBI etc.  What I'm saying is that you don't need all these elaborate conspiracy theories behind massacres when you have well intentioned shrinks, drug companies, Coca Cola, massive inequalities creating a bullying society, Billy Graham, hero worship, etc etc. to tip someone over the edge so that he or she does the massacre without needing any help from the coppers or anyone else. 

 

In other words they derive from the rank stupidity of a nation thinking that it can have social harmony when one hundred million US citizens live in poverty whilst a few individuals can amass huge fortunes without doing any work but simply by speculation.  All speculation does is redistribute wealth UPWARD.  Fix that problem by a MASSIVE redistribution DOWNWARD and there will be no more massacres as people will be able to throw their guns into the ocean, coppers. national guard, military included. 

 

Then the US can start dry docking its air craft carrier fleets, light up oxy-acetaline torches and start cutting them up so the rest of the world can feel safe from 'shock and awe' and follow suite.  Only then will the Statue of Liberty have any real meaning.

 

Oh, incidentally, it was Jack Ruby who shot Kennedy, from the grassy knoll, hence shooting Oswald the next day to shut him up.  There was no police presence on the grassy knoll because a small clique of Dallas coppers arranged it that way, egging on Ruby to kill Kennedy, then Oswald by telling him he'd be a national hero and Ruby was stupid enough to believe them.  Oswald was in the bookstore with an Argentine bolt action Manlicker of the same caliber as Ruby's semi automatic gun, with every intention of shooting Kennedy, but instead panicked and took off, shooting a copper dead, who tried to capture him, with a handgun. 

 

The link between Oswald and the Dallas coppers was Oswald's Russian wife who was having a secret affair with one of the cops.  She told the cop of Oswald's intention to kill Kennedy, doubtless to dob hubby in to STOP the assassination as she could be implicated and go to the chair if Oswald DID get Kennedy. 

 

The person who witnessed Ruby killing Kennedy was a Dallas cop who had a day off work and who was on the grassy knoll with his daughter.  He was amazed that there was no police presence on the knoll.  He saw Ruby lift his rifle, shoot Kennedy from a very short range (open sights), as the car was slowing to make the turn, a change in the route that had been made by the Dallas cops the day before 'for security reasons'.

 

Ruby took off in his car.  The cop jumped into his car and followed Ruby but dropped off when he realized that Ruby could see him in his rear vision mirror and might have a shot at him.  So the cop stopped at a phone booth, rang his police station to tell them, thinking there would be an immediate hunt for Ruby.  NOTHING happened!!!  The cop described this secretive core of right wing coppers as the 'white shoe brigade'.  Links with the KKK?  Who knows.  Catholic Kennedy in Baptist loony heartland.  The Antichrist.  HAD to die or would condemn all US citizens to Hellfire.

 

You see, simple.  No CIA, FBI, Vatican, Illuminati, Mafia, Pentagon etc. involvement.  Just a small bunch of loony right wing coppers and their idiot mate Ruby and that it!  Fits perfectly.  No coppers shooting people in the theater, just Holmes driven crazy by a crazy society.
