This is the answer, Wrabbit. Once you've seen the movie, you'll know. I have seen it.
Bane is the single most evil, disturbing villain I've ever seen on screen in any movie, full stop. Worse than Ledger's Joker, morally and psychologically. He is a complete, unrestrained monster. The fact that the mask might remind you of Cthulhu, should not be taken as a coincidence.
TDKR is not a movie for children, or the psychologically unstable. Parents, do NOT take your children to see this film.edit on 20-7-2012 by petrus4 because: (no reason given)

The dark movie plot, the behavior of people reacting to bad reviews and making threats, a dumb-ass parent bringing a 3 month old to a late night screening of a violent film, the massacre, the fixation on death and destruction that will fixate the nation for the next few weeks - all just symptomatic of the barbarism associated with a decaying society...

Let Freedom Ring!!!
Ok, now that we got our patriotic mating yells out of the way, let's get real.
Considering how many authority agencies there are, why does everyone assume it is TSA and not FBI, HS, CIA,NSA, whatever.
And if anyone tries to work FEMA into this, I will scream.
Obviously you people don't understand LE agencies to even comment.
HS was developed to give your locals the tools and funds to handle crises such as these. That means all your local LE now have a emergency response program, and people trained just for terrorist or bioattacks.
Which is why the reports have been that the police responsed really well, because they have been given the means to train for more of these incidents.
Now what the FEDS will do is question the FBI on why they didn't have information on this guy. And how did he manage to keep under the radar.
With your knee jerk reaction to everything FED, and giving the FEDS amazing imaginary powers, you forget that the local law enforcement do have plenty to say about what happens.
Your locals have more clout than you think. I have personally seen it.
and you forget to use commone sense.
If you place agents of any breed in front of a movie theater, than a perp will go to a grocery store.
And you can't place agents in front of every public building.As much as you like to think they can.
What they will focus on is how did a nutjob buy all these guns and tear gas, and a kevlar vest, and no one knew about it.

Yes, bullets penetrate sheetrock and fabric quite easily. Theaters are pretty cheaply built.
I have seen a lot of people saying they thought it was a promo or a gag, but I have to ask what type of people would create such a promo? If I were in a theatre, and a guy in a gas mask with a shotgun, and teargas walked in and pointed the gun at someone, I would shoot him. If it turned out later to be a promo or a gag, I wouldn't feel the least bit sorry for the dead guy or the idiots that planned the bone-headed stunt. You don't walk into a crowded theatre, looking like a bad guy, and pointing a gun.
People really need to start assuming things are threats instead of assuming they are NOT threats. People these days think the government is supposed to protect us from sharks, and wolves, and mosquitoes, and diseases, and our diets, and crazy gunmen? Really? NO! We have a responsibility to protect ourselves. We need to stop assuming everything is just going to be ok, and whatever is happening must have been pre-planned or approved by someone. NO! Assume you need to protect yourself, and once you are safe, then figure out what the hell just happened.
Well.....that's what television does. It desensitizes people. It takes away it's natural abilities to think properly, and react accordingly. So, of course they thought it was part of the show. People have become stupid and lazy. They want someone else to fix the problems of this world, while they sit around, eating popcorn.
What will be the "solution"?
I think we all know the answer to that one. The solution: MORE CONTROL.
How's that saying going...about deserving neither liberty nor security?
Ew, i just had a brainfart. This happened in "Denver", right?

Death threats for what?
I am so confused by all this.
The movie review website Rotten Tomatoes had to shut down commenting on the movies webpage a few days ago. People were posting threats of murder and rape against the movie reviewers that posted bad reviews.
ATS thread on that: Attacks on the Dark Knight Rises Rotten Tomatoes Page
This is all just tragic.edit on 20-7-2012 by OneisOne because: clarity

I cant belive he broke the law. I mean, its a law, he cant do that. Sarc/ off
gun laws only bind Law abiding citizens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
all it would take was one or two people in the crowed to have had a gun to stop this crazy person. Less would have died!
colorado is a CCW state......
you have to take a class to get a certificate in which you take to LE to get a permit. you can carry a concealed weapon on you and in your vehicle.
from what was said above, that chain of theaters does not allow one to bring in a weapon....edit on July 20th 2012 by greeneyedleo because: (no reason given)

My heart goes out to the victims and their families, but let's not get sucked into fear. This is (to me) an obvious attempt at problem-reaction-solution. Nothing is more terrifying than senseless violence like this. This is going to be used to create a maelstrom of fear. Keep your heads people. I know it's tragic but don't get sucked into the fear. They're going to use this to push something... probably not FEMA or Iran or anything that predictable... But this is obviously designed to put us into a state of fear. The timing, the setting, everything is catering to what 99% of Americans have never experienced and therefore fear the most. If this happened in rural Columbia it might get a brief mention in our newspapers. Remember what they did with Columbine and every other "random" act of violence in this country. I for one will pay my respects to the victims and their families but I refuse to get sucked into the fear-driven hype! This terrorism is just such an old game...

I just don't understand what kind of parent would take their 3 month old to a midnight showing at a movie theatre. The past two Batman movies have been really "dark" and I don't think it is any place for a child under thirteen.

More people need to be trained in how to operate a firearm. If even 2 people in that theatre were armed this guy would have been dropped as quick as he started. Infact, if this nut knew that he had a 50/50 chance of running into another armed citizen I highly doubt he would have done it in the first place. An armed population is a deterrent to criminals. Brainwashing people into thinking that they can't defend themselves turns them into victims.
I bet TSA ends up in the movie theatres now. Get ready to be sexually assaulted before you see a movie.

From Sky.....Marleen Holmes (mother of shooter) apparently spoke to ABC news saying that she thought it was her son and that she needed to get to Colarado and said, "I think you have the right man".
So whilst he never raised any flags for the authorities, he obviously did with his mum.
This reminds me of the shooting in Arizona of Giffords.
