Above link is an attempt to validate my points, and will be quoted upon for the implication of my perspective.
"AURORA, Colo. (AP) — The semiautomatic assault rifle used by the gunman in a mass shooting at a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie jammed
during the attack, a federal law enforcement official told The Associated Press, which forced the shooter to switch to another gun with less fire
That being said, would this man really plan an attack without proper research? Your telling me that be planned to use an un-reliable weapon to inflict
mass casualties? Or perhaps that rifle may have been shot before, it's quality reduced, or that the weapon wasn't properly mainained? It could have
been dirty? Sorry but I don't think a smart man accused of planning an attack with "("calculation and deliberation," police said Saturday.)"
would let these kind of variables have any effect on his attack. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't it seem strange they can tell you the weapon
jammed, but I didn't see any indication of the type of rifle he used.
"During the attack early Friday, Holmes used the military-style semiautomatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol to open fire on the unsuspecting
theater-goers, Oates. Holmes had bought the weapons at local gun stores within the past two months. He recently purchased 6,000 rounds of ammunition
over the Internet, the chief said.
Holmes also bought an urban assault vest, two magazine holders and a knife for just over $300 on July 2 from an online supplier of tactical gear for
police and military personnel, according to the company."
He was armed to the teeth, with an arsenal that included a knife. The knife is a very personal, last line of defense. Obviously his last resort in
case he ran out of any other means to inflict casualties before being taken out. It could also be said that he had a knife because he may have valued
his life, which would not make sense, if this held value to him, would he really have done this? Why would he need a knife if he planned to just allow
himself to be captured. He killed innocent people, then allowed himself to be captured? Indicating perhaps a change in persepective. The 1st change I
would think is he "Gave Up" but knowing that he had innocent blood on his hands, and he was finished, his actions un reversable, why didn't he just
take the easy way (suicide) out? Doesn't make sense...this man is supposed to be very smart. I believe that his arsenal only serves the purpose of
"Show of Force". Showing you how easy it is to become so dangerous. Surely a means to reduce our capability to acquire any means of self defence.
"About 8 p.m. Saturday, police left the apartment building carrying a laptop computer and a hard drive"
Why would a man who wanted to turn himself in need to booby trap his house? If a smart man like this decided to booby trap his house, what makes you
think that the authorities could just walk in, and defuse everything, and recover his laptop, and hard drive. I believe they wanted to show you that
he planned on destroying everything that coud be used to explain this situation, but instead they recovered his laptop and hard drive that will surely
contain evidence that will be made up, distorted, twisted, and delivered unto you. And you won't suspect a thing, because the house was boobytrapped,
and that he didnt want anyone to recover this "evidence".
