The judge in the James Holmes case has unsealed an arrest affidavit and several search warrants in the case.

Among the details revealed by these documents -- that psychiatrist Lynne Fenton reported to a police officer in June that Holmes made "homicidal statements" and "threatened and harassed her;" that items found in his apartment included a "Batman mask;" and that police believed a notebook Holmes sent to Fenton "may contain evidence relating to the planning of the crime." Read the documents below.

Also included is Judge Carlos Samour's order to release the documents.

Holmes is charged with killing twelve people and injuring seventy more by opening fire at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises at the Century 16 theater in Aurora on July 20. If convicted, he'll face the death penalty.

Update: The reference to homicidal statements is on page eight of the first document below. Here's an excerpt:

Aurora Police Officer Will Hinton contacted University of Colorado Police Officer Lynn Whitten. Officer Whitten advised Officer Hinton that she had received correspondence, back in June 2012, with Dr. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist with the University of Colorado Medical Campus. Dr. Fenton advised that through her contact with James Holmes she was reporting, per her requirement, his danger to the public due to homicidal statements he had made. Additionally, Dr. Fenton was advising that she had been treating Holmes, and that Holmes had stopped seeing her and had begun threatening her via text messages.

This is one of at least several examples like this (Evan Ebel and the Orange county 18-year-old killer). I clearly remember a leaked story, no doubt from law enforcement, that the psychiatrist had not done everything she could to get him committed. This shows once again that much of our law enforcement is corrupt and incompetent. Remember how threats from Eric and Dylan were ignored, and the Virginia Tech killer, and others. Yet archaic drug laws are being enforcement and there are plenty of examples of police pursuing law-abiding citizens, even killing them.

Yup, and the media has been scaring us to death. Our health care system is broke, mental health doesn't work, ban rifles and magazines, monitor facebook, narc of your neighbor and microchip your kid. We have all been hemmoriging civil rights to find out he was reported to police by a expert a month before the crime.
