James Holmes: Did he call CU hospital nine minutes before Aurora theater shooting?

James Holmes.
Most of the lengthy hearing yesterday in the James Holmes case focused on whether the prosecution will have access to a package the suspect allegedly sent to psychiatrist Lynne Fenton before the July 20th shooting at an Aurora movie theater. But one quick exchange between Fenton and the defense raised an intriguing question: Did Holmes call the University of Colorado Hospital nine minutes before he opened fire?

It was a bit of a tangent from the main substance of the hearing, which focused on doctor-patient privilege and whether this package should be kept from prosecutors, who seem to believe its contents might establish a motive -- undermining a possible insanity defense.

The question of a possible phone call minutes before Holmes started shooting moviegoers in the Century 16 theater came up after a second recess in the nearly four-hour hearing yesterday afternoon. Tamara Brady, Holmes's public defender, asked Fenton if she recognized a specific phone number, which Brady read for her.

Fenton said she did: It was an operator switchboard number for the University of Colorado Hospital, where Fenton is the medical director of the Student Mental Health Center.

Brady then said: "Do you know whether James Holmes called that number nine minutes before the shooting started?"

Fenton responded that she did not.

Karen Pearson, a prosecutor, followed up by asking Fenton, who was brought in as a witness for the first time yesterday, if Holmes would have had a specific phone number for Fenton and her office that he could use if he wanted to reach her.

Fenton, who gave short, deliberate answers throughout the hearing, said yes.

WARNING!!!

The suppression order imposed by Justice Sylvester is TOTALLY counter-productive to James Holmes defense and to the security of every citizen in the US. It is only fanning the flames of of conspiracy theories and paranoia of so many disturbed individuals in a similar situation to what Holmes was in. From everything that I have read to date in the media, plus my own research over forty years, the full picture will only AID his defense, whilst calming this paranoia, which so far has helped boost US gun sales enormously, especially in Colorado. I would question the motivation of the order, as it seems to me that it is simply to protect certain individuals from accusations of culpability and possible litigation, even threats to their personal security.

 

This is absolute nonsense as it resides in the erroneous supposition that schizophrenia is inherited, therefore proper screening and assessment must have been negligent in allowing Holmes to slip through the net. This case is about, not just US society, but every society on Earth. Never before, to my knowledge, has a case came up which would throw so much light on psychosis, as it has arisen out of the very heart of psychiatry, neurology, etc. of a major US University, one which thus should have the ability to to EXAMINE ITSELF as it relates to Holmes, as has never happened before in history. I have sent 40 emails to researchers at the Anschutz Faculty of Medicine with links to my blog on Tumlr    http://www.tumblr.com/blog/noduleata.

 

Holmes own story is ABSOLUTELY PIVOTAL, OBVIOUSLY. However, he is in no condition to elucidate anything in his current position. His mind has to function properly. This is about the US Bill of Rights, ie freedom of speech for EVERY citizen, including him and every other person with a psychiatric disorder who are EXCLUDED from said freedom by social prejudice. Therefore he must be moved to a decent non-threatening environment, under no coercion whatsoever and ALL CHARGES AGAINST HIM MUST BE DROPPED or he will not be amenable to telling the whole TRUTH. He is both a victim and a witness in what must be an inquiry into the root causes of violence and psychosis. ALL EXECUTIONS in all US States must be suspended as they are STATE MURDER and provide justification for murder by individuals.

 

Coming up this week is a decision as to whether the European Central Bank will be allowed to loan directly to basket case European nations, plus the US Fed will soon have to decide if it will engage in more QE (quantitative easing) ie. blow out the money supply to possibly dangerous levels in BOTH cases. A slump on world Markets could impose so much extra hardships on vulnerable individuals as to trigger A LOT MORE gun violence, thereby destabilizing markets even further. Looting and panic buying on top of the blow out in the money supply could light the fire of global HYPERINFLATION and the collapse of the world economy. This is all about fairness, after all, and at the moment the US is one of the most UNFAIR nations on Earth, with Australia not far behind, but much worse than the US as far as Freedom of Speech is concerned ie the Australian ABC.

What did religion do for Holmes?

 

I wrote the following in response to the Religious program Encounter on Australia's ABC in which the name Dietrich Bonhoeffer came .

 

Bonhoffer was a Lutheran, as was James Holmes, attending church with his parents from an early age. So where were the Lutherans when the this 'difficult' individual started cracking up about a year or more ago, holed up in his flat psychotic and facing homelessness. Nowhere it would seem. Maybe it was his Christian upbringing that actually led to his psychosis, all those massacres by Moses, then Joshua, in the Old testament. God (the voices) told Abraham to go up into the mountain and slaughter his son Isaac. What if the same voices told Holmes that if he didn't go and slaughter those 'evil' people in the theatre that night then he was going to burn in Hell forever, then gave him a taste of paranoia so intense he was on the edge of catatonia? Hell on Earth indeed and ETERNAL when you are there.

 

I have no doubt whatsoever that Holmes must have attempted to get help from the media a number of times, and it was not the least interested in talking to a 'nutter'. I know this from my own personal experience. I am about to send emails to all the major US radio network, beginning with PBS, to see how THEY respond to my request for a radio interview to explain the desperation of MY situation to a US audience because 20 years of trying the Australian media has only made my situation worse, whenever I have had publicity, so that now it is almost terminal.

 

As to help I have received from Christians. In 1970 I lost TWO abalone boats with the death of my deckhand on each occasion, punishment by God I believed for my backsliding, and punishment by man by enormous stigma against me. The local Baptist minister visited me in hospital after I lost the first boat and was being treated for suicidal depression. He said with great compassion, "The reason you lost that boat and the young man died was because you turned your back on the Lord Jesus Christ." Jesus wept!!! What wonderful therapy? What love! Just the shot when you believe that anyway. Well not now!

 

All I heard on Encounter tonight was the usual sanctimonious tripe that simply alienates even further. Flowery, meaningless talk. There is no love, ANYWHERE. 40 years of being abused has taught me that. It is a myth, a delusion that Christians especially go on and on about. Plenty of 'righteous indignation' which is just another name for malice. 15 years camped in a National Park, sometimes not seeing another human being for up to 6 weeks, a refugee in my own country, waiting for just one person to lift a finger to expose my plight.

 

I don't expect this comment to be accepted by the ABC. Not to worry as I'll plaster it all over the US media anyway. I've already spent the last 5 weeks putting long comments about Holmes on all major US news networks and blogs. I very rarely get one rejected in the US, as it's media seems to think I know something about the subject of abuse. However, comments are no substitute for a nationwide radio interview, especially one which explains what happened to Holmes. Ironically I have even spent some time studying neurology when I began building biofeedback equipment, as I am an electronic technician. I also attended Lorne Cancer and Genome conferences for about 12 years.

Why I KNOW what Holmes has copped!

 

For about 25 years I have been trying to get the Australian ABC to give me publicity about the abuse I've copped in that time. The Australian media, ABC especially, has treated me with total contempt for many years. In this time I have lost my home, abalone license, boat, workshops, been put into jail twice, bin twice, been thrown out of 9 places with my life threatened on three occasions if I didn't get out immediately, had a bush camp smashed up with all camping gear stolen by rangers. I have had 5 lots of property stolen from places I have been thrown out of, including the Sisters of Mercy monastery in Apollo Bay by the NUNS. The law is of no help as those supposed to uphold the law break it themselves repeatedly in my experience.

 

Now cop this. I tried to get publicity about the death of SIX of my deckhands, 3 by suicide and 3 in boat accidents, 2 on my my boats in 1970. In 1968 I was flown to an off shore oil rig with the worst case of bends the decompression chamber operators had ever seen. Many years later the abalone diver son of a famous Australian country and western singer hanged himself in bush up above where my boat accidents took place in the most bizarre circumstances.. Despite writing to the ABC and later emailing on numerous occasions in total desperation, I very rarely receive a reply, usually sarcastic or patronizing when I do, even though there is an incredible story in this. I have tried unsuccessfully to have a police inquiry into my boat accidents, despite there not being a coroners inquest when I lost the second boat. Two magistrates told me there would NEVER be a police inquiry.  So here we have the stigma of being thought of as a serial killer.  Nice eh.  I have ALSO blown the whistle on two occasions, one about no safety equipment on abalone boats after I had the first accident, and the reason I was deliberately abandoned to die when I lost the second boat.  Then I blew the whistle about the abuses in the industry.  So I'm a 'dobber' as well.  I thought that when I came out of MY psychosis in 1972 that the world would respect honesty.  HAH!!!

 

Four years ago I sent 16 ABC presenters the same booklet “The (Obama) Rescue Package, Why it Cannot Work.” followed by 3 CD's of music I had made and none of them even had the common courtesy to acknowledge that they had received the material. Yet listening to these people on air one would think they were the very bastions of compassion and understanding. What people don't realize is that to be ignored is seen by the abused as every bit as much abuse as those directly abusing and in the case of the psychotic as part of a giant conspiracy. I believe that James Holmes was treated with the same disdain by the media when he tried to get help, and this contributed to the massacre.

I attend regular therapy. On my first session it was explained to me that everything I said would be kept absolutely private under doctor/patient confidentiality UNLESS I indicated that I was going to harm myself or harm others, in which case the doctor is allowed to alert someone. In this case, a hideous crime already has been committed, and the confidentiality should absolutely be broken in order to bring further insight into the crime leading to an end  result that will hopefully bring the families of the victims closure.

When a serious and heinous crime such as this has been committed, there should be NO question about privilege. He no longer has a right to that. They should open the package and make it a apart of the criminal public record.

I thought about the caller not speaking, however most good home phones (and mobiles of course) log the call and the number of the caller, but there is no mention of that in the media. I'm just assuming that, being so desperate for a resolution, he would make a last ditch call, but change his mind when he realized that nothing WOULD be resolved. If he gets arrested with all the gear on and with his guns he's in max security for years and drugged. If he goes back home he'd probably go into the Hell of a catatonic coma not knowing what's gonna happen next, and not come out of it. As long as a resolution is in sight, ANY resolution, he'd keep out of this Hell. Night after night of terrible insomnia would exacerbate his delusions. His windows covered would increase his paranoia.

 

I've been frozen stiff in catatonia many times on big doses of acid a long while ago, and believed that I was going to be put on trial and burned at the stake. The terror of catatonia is so horrific that I actually wanted to be grabbed and tried, so that SOMETHING was actually happening, that being burned at the stake was better burning in the CONFUSION of this psychological Hell.

 

This is a factor that NOBODY in the media or anywhere else is considering as it is the most delusional state of all, when the radio, tele, billboards etc. are sending you messages. Holmes would do whatever kept him out of Hell, even just out. Anyway, as the Joker underdog he'd be killing the CLASS enemy, the bourgeois worshippers of Batman representing the establishment that was crucifying him, ie the theatre audience. Kids, collateral damage, to quote McVey, himself quoting Stormin' Norman. Holmes had swapped sides. How many video games that he watched were war about class war, a righteous left blasting an unrighteous right. (Incidentally I'm a non violent anarchist but have been on both sides at different times.). How many class wars HAVE started with some sort of atrocity, and which inspired him. Che's messianic posters, and on tee shirts are everywhere.

 

I'm positive that many mass murders have believed that their massacre would start a class war, left OR right, if not beginning immediately, within days. They don't show much political savvy, just a crude upstairs vs. downstairs, boss vs. worker mentality. Holmes had been a Batman worshipper but had swapped sides, presumably once he starts getting rejected by Uni assessors. What did the video games tell him to do when he was extremely paranoid, as he would have been, leading up to the attack, especially once he died his hair red. I don't watch the bloody things so I haven't a clue. What sort of tele did he watch, live or online?

 

As to not being seen by theatre patrons, staff, video cameras etc., all he had to do is wear a cap over his hair, not all that complicated really eh!

 

When applying an understanding of extreme psychosis I don't see any need for conspiracies, just a kid driven crazy be an insane society and IT'S paranoia. I've got no compunctions in admitting that I have enormous sympathy for Jimmy and will do whatever I can to get him off the hook, even if that means some sort of DECENT detention for his own safety.

What if Holmes wasn't planning ahead, and was simply responding to immediate threats, therefore not being devious at all, just trying to stay alive.

 I believe that initially he wired up his flat with explosives to prevent another tenant taking his apartment, because he only had a month to get out once he resigned his PhD course and faced homelessness. The $26,000 he was paid by the NIH was probably all the money he had and he would have had to pay that back leaving him broke, psychotic and homeless, no friends, no offers of real help from ANYWHERE. So he uses the money to buy the explosives and the guns and ammo, keeping some for food.  How much credit card debt did he have  Was he paying his car off and was behind in payments, threatened with repossession?  Backed into a corner with NO escape?

 Being faced with forced eviction with the very real possibility of a confrontation with the police, in which case he could be shot dead, armed or not armed or with just a carving knife.  Happens a lot in Australia, attitude good riddance. What the police don't seem to realise that every schizophrenic that reads or hears about the shooting of a schizophrenic, become terrified that they might be next. Very rarely is there an inquiry, which always exonerates the police anyway. Recently 5 cops in Victoria couldn't stop a 14 year old kid yielding a knife from advancing on them, despite using capsicum spray on him, and shot him dead. What about a dart tranquilliser gun, pure ammonia in some sort of water pistol. To many other paranoid schizophrenics that was MURDER. So how could Holmes be accused of being homicidal just trying to protect his life.  

 What property he had would be thrown out into the street LEGALLY and stolen, possibly by neighbors only too keen to help out. Forget legal right for a psychotic. Everybody, police included, just ignore the law to get rid of a nutter. Hope he commits suicide. This is reality and what CREATES psychosis and a hatred of society that goes with it.

 So I reckon he was initially preparing for a gun siege from his flat, having the strategic advantage of being on the second floor, preferring to die in his flat than out in the gutter somewhere. Who would care. NOBODY. How the hell do 3 shrinks help in any way. He needed REAL help, not coercive mumbo jumbo and a poisonous antipsyvhotic.  Unfortunately it just ain't available.  If it was there'd be no such thing as psychosis.  So US, put yourself on trial.

I'd reckon that this call was Holmes last ditch attempt to get some REAL help, which psychiatry AIN'T. Quite the opposite as events have clearly shown. Each threat he made was ditto, trying to FORCE society to help when it wasn't, and NEVER is, forthcoming for someone deemed to be mad. Already psychotic he was very soon to become homeless, penniless, friendless, disowned? and, with not one shred of compassion coming from anywhere on Earth. DEAD MAN LAYING IN THE GUTTER. He wanted to be STOPPED from committing the massacre so that people realsized the desperation of his situation, so that he'd be saved at the very last minute.

Nothing happens. So he goes ahead, now believing he be will be forgiven as it was the ONLY way possible to highlight the plight of the psychotic, so that something REAL, like accommodation is provided for them, just like it is for EARTHQUAKE, FLOOD and FIRE VICTIMS. Why the difference? Actually believing that this forgiveness would happen made him TRULY psychotic as most of the comments make abundantly clear.

Did he, on making the call, change his mind or decide it's too late at night for Fenton to be awake, or that it was a waste of time and hang up, then enters the theatre. What is he going to tell her anyway at this stage. His thinking is not gonna be exactly very calm. He's a schizophrenic, thus oscillating between extreme pessimism and optimism. Ok, so he doesn't go ahead, gets arrested all fitted out in his armour and with his guns and, seen as a huge threat, spends many years in a max security mental hospital, compulsorily medicated on the most toxic of all drugs, the antipsychotics the last thing on Earth he'd want. Hell on Earth.

As psychotic as he is he KNEW that only a massacre would get media attention and he'd just have to take a chance on the outcome. Max security mental hospital and homeless in the street are simply not options, leaving only suicide as he is TOTALLY alienated by this stage, by his threats, guns and explosives. But why SHOULD he allow society to deliberately drive him to suicide. Here the law totally loses credibility, especially when law enforcers also break the very laws they are supposed to be upholding in their treatment of psychotics, as well as inventing laws knowing that there will be no redress because the psychotic is totally cut off from the means of redress.

Here we get to the very roots of terrorism. What does it matter if you get executed if your only other option is suicide, IMPOSED upon you, intentionally or due to gross insensitivity. You buy time, have somewhere to live and have a chance to present your case. Then if life becomes untenable you still have the option of suicide anyway. Every step up to this stage has been imposed upon him by a grossly insensitive and avaricious society. So who is culpable? If one is going to blame Holmes then one has to say he was wrong not to choose suicide, thereby invalidating the argument.

He did prove one thing, for what it's worth. That it IS impossible for someone deemed psychotic to get any REAL help whatsovever, that compassion for the MAD in society is nil, zilch, zero unless you call being labelled schizophrenic, poisoned with an antipsychotic, or have you brained fried with ECT help. That's it, NOTHING else. Noone ever tried harder for help and not one single drop was forthcoming, not a shred. He also proved that getting publicity for one's plight is only possible with an act of horrific violence. Take note media if that's possible.

That's why people ARE mad you see, when they are equated with vermin, BAD and MAD, scum, get thrown out of house after house illegally, exploited, have what little property they accumulate stolen time and time again, abused, scapegoated, patronized, assaulted, raped, ridiculed, abused. Coppers won't help them even though a myriad illegalities are being perpetrated against them, just tell them to 'piss off'. Living on the street, bottle of cheap plonk, looking bloody dreadful, jabbering away to themselves in HELL. Get shot dead for sport then hosed down the drain with the rest of the garbage for the rats, flies and cockroaches to feed on. Something for Jimmy to look forward to.

So as long as society is going to treat people thus it is gonna have to cop the massacres that occur from time to time as a result. Don't blame people like Holmes. He'd probably claim that his approach to the problem was quite measured in proportion or even restrained compared to what he'd copped,. What if he hadda got hold of a bloody tank, or an aircraft carrier fleet and blasted the crap out of Iraq, just like that nice Mr Bush when HE went berserk in a theatre of war and committed mass slaughter just because Mr Hussien threatened to assassinate the Bush family after Desert Storm in '91? Is there any fundamental difference?

What is good for the goose has to be good for the gander. Fry Holmes and fry Bush at the same time. Bush was probably Holmes' role model.

And no, it's not glorification. It's news. Why are you subscribed to WestWord if you don't want to read news, especailly pertaining to Denver and Colorado? Are you lost? Do you need help? Let me direct you somewhere you may enjoy---> www.theonion.com. No one was saying this about Treyvon and Zimmerman. Or the zombie eating guy? So what makes this glorification? if anything, i'd say the guy who ate someone's face in FL was more glorification than anything, so get off your high horse and take a fucking valium or get off the computer. Oh or just scroll on by. No one said you had to be interested in everything that someone posts.

You guys are fucking idiots. I wouldn't wish this on anyone, but I hope all you imbeciles pointing fingers have a child that has a mental illness one day. This is the problem. He fucking tried to reach out for help, and was denied and ignored. So yeah, call an emergency room? Are you stupid?Do you understand why they have patient-doctor confidentiality? He obviously felt comfortable talking to his dr. You guys are scum. And really, this is why we have a homeless problem here in America. We shun our veterans, and shun our mentally ill and the misunderstood. Everyone should have someone they can lean on at a time in need. How dare every single one of you. If it were you or your family, you'd feel so much different. SMH.

 @noddyblacksheep I'm a target too, so I totally hear what you are saying. I'm sure his psychiatrist knew he was a target, and so did his church. He had emailed his friend saying they psychiatrist was in on it. He's innocent, just another CIA patsy.

 Dalemcgill.

I want to get this VERY clear.  I'm NOT suggesting any conspiracy to set someone up to commit a massacre, by CIA, FBI or anybody else.  What I'm saying is that it was a result of ignorance, callousness and insensitivity on the part of society that drives someone psychotic to violence as there is NO other way to get media attention to his or her plight.  If there IS collusion it is between relatives, associates, shrink etc. to have someone incarcerated and involuntarily  medicated out of fear for THEIR safety, something which only makes matters worse by creating more stigma and resentment and belief in a much larger conspiracy ..

 

I'm not even suggesting that Holmes didn't know what he was doing, but that he WAS motivated by an understandable hatred of society given the way he'd been treated, but was so deluded by extreme paranoia, voices (auditory hallucinations), messages from tele, billboards, radio etc. that convinced him that he was actually doing good committing the massacre, God's will even.. He must have known he could not have carted 6,000 rounds of ammo into that theatre. So obviously all the stuff he bought, ammo, guns, armor was for a siege FROM THE FLAT, believing that he would be DELIBERATELY shot dead by the police in a confrontation with them when he refused to leave his flat when he had to get out. This is something that probably does happen from time to time, ie a per-emptive strike by a cop a la George Bush's new philosophy after 9/11. Get him before he gets you one day when you least expect it. He is anonymous in a crowd whereas you stick out like sore thumb in your uniform/in a clearly marked police car.

 

I got thrown out by a cop from the convent I lived in for 18 month's but I already had a heap of camping gear and food stashed in the forest, plus a heap of survival skills, so I wasn't backed right into a corner. I know the cop pretty well, and to embarrass him and the nun I actually asked him to shoot me, that it would save me from hanging myself out in the forest. It worked because later in the day when he'd gone she offered to drive me out to where I wanted to go. Obviously the cop had asked her to do this so that he had some idea where I might have gone. I didn't take her up on the offer and a friend drove me out. I figured the torment would do he some good.

 

But for Holmes there was NO way out and the wait in that flat, all by himself, day after day, unable to sleep at night adding to hallucinations would have become TOTALLY intolerable. He'd sent the package to Fenton but hadn't got a response, seeing a giant conspiracy getting bigger and bigger. Soon he be TRAPPED, UNABLE to get out, could even be gassed in the flat. Finally it becomes so intolerable that if the cops won't come to him he'll go to them. But he knows that his goose will be cooked if a cop gets killed, hence telling them about his flat being all wired up after the massacre. In his delusions he could actually believe that the cops would be on his side, perhaps news of a pay dispute between cops and government on the tele had convinced him of this?

 

He sets everything up as the theatre, but IS SO desperate for another way out, the voices going beserk by now. He is looking for direction what to do, as measured by the intensity of his paranoia. So he rings the hospital but as the phone rings he then becomes terrified of going catatonic, ie in HELL FOREVER. How the hell can he trust Fenton as she has lied to him before, as does every shrink to schizophrenics? Believes he is being disobedient, cowardly, no warrior whatsover. He could have even thought that the cops might shoot him when they arrive for being disobedient. So into the theater he goes, but after the massacre he strips all his armor off and drops his guns as he heads for his car, as if to say to the cops 'Look I'm unarmed, don't shoot'.

 

Now he'd wait for the cheering crowds to arrive, lift him up onto their shoulders, hailing their new Messiah, whilst all over the nation Government, CIA, FBI, National guard would be under a hail of gunfire as the oppressed rose up against their depressors. All of those who tried to set him up would be exposed and tried. It didn't quite work out like that hence his total confusion in court.

 

OKAY, what I'm saying is that given all of the confused and conflicting messages he'd been receiving from society, beginning years before, and given his progressing psychosis, HE COULD NOT HAVE DRAWN ANY OTHER CONCLUSION. NOT deliberate just incredibly stupid and callous. If there are 350,000,000 people in the US then he is 1/350,000,000 to blame.  THAT"S A FACT.

 

Incidentally, I've taken Daytura, one big flower a couple of times, and whilst it was a pretty bloody dreadful experience I couldn't see myself obeying a command to do anything, let alone commit a massacre, and I did remember both trips, felt like weevils eating my brain out My eyes wouldn't focus properly for a week after each trip.
