I'm also confused how this thread ended up in "Skunk Works", I'm pretty sure I posted in Breaking General News. If it got moved by a mod, a notice would be nice, but maybe I screwed up...

There were photos of the homemade bombs set up in his apartment. But its not clear what would trigger them to go off. It says they (police) entered through a window, so maybe they were wired to the front door.
The first was a trip cord connected to the front door. After he left the apartment, Holmes started a recording in his apartment that was 40 minutes of silence followed by blaring music.
He thought the noise would prompt one of his neighbors to call police and that responding officers would break into the home through the front door, starting off a series of explosions.
The other plan was a remote control that he left outside his apartment, next to a remote-controlled toy car. If police didn't respond to the noise complaint. He thought someone would see the car and try to play with it using the remote, which was in fact hiding a remote detonator.
Neither plan worked, though one neighbor did say she tried knocking on Holmes' door around midnight when she grew tired of his music. She got no answer on the door but did not report the music to police.

The apartment pics just seem like a blatant stage.
The theater pics make me want to run through the official story all over again. There are just too many red flags and oddities here. It just seems that too many of these pictures are media friendly, or were taken in a manner as to evoke an emotional response. That's not to take away from the tragedy itself, but they just seem like propaganda.

Really that "gunpowder" pic looks like an obvious spill , the zigzag pattern......
I dono about these pics man...
Something is not right .
Nearly a dozen liter soda bottles filled with gasoline rest on the floor, along with a dusting of white gunpowder, intended to catch fire and speed up the process.
If the holes don't match with the angle he was shooting from, that could be the reason.
