Okay, suppose it's a false flag attack, perhaps to push the whole gun control thing. The UN Small Arms Treaty is conveniently upcoming, we will
note. Suppose I were planning it, and Holmes is a patsy. How would I do it?
Holmes would be doped out of his mind, he and a driver/minder would drive up and park where the car was found. (Minder is able to dose Holmes again
should he come out of it too quickly.) Door opener would be prepositioned inside. Door opens, shooter (possibly the driver/minder, possibly someone
else) keeps the door from closing, waits until the opener gets to the getaway car, makes sure it starts okay, gets to position for the getaway.
Shooter goes in, does his thing, dumps the gear (leaving mask on til he's under the camera), drops mask, hops in car, leaves. Someone other than the
shooter drives, as brilliant red hair driving away might draw attention.
It's very important to keep things simple enough to work while accounting for snags.
Much has been made of the timing of 911 calls and police arrival. Cell phone jammers are cheap and available; I'd have one operating to make sure
the calls didn't go out inconveniently early. Did anyone try to place a 911 call and get no bars? Interviewing police would know, but we'd never
hear that. Especially if details are sealed by a judge. Oh wait, a judge HAS sealed off the details.
It's well known that if you don't want witnesses to make a good ID, you wear a rubber clown nose or something similar, to attract attention.
Everyone focuses on the nose, sees no other features. Or maybe painted red hair. Anyone wearing a gas mask and brilliant red hair would be positively
identified as the shooter; minor differences of height or build would be ignored. But the red hair has a down side; it would be remembered, if only
in retrospect, in other contexts. A witness spoke of standing in line for 4 hours to get a good seat. Did anyone see a red-painted-hair man standing
in line? Or maybe the door opener was more nondescript, ie not Holmes? Even if a witness didn't initially remark it, in retrospect someone would say
"oh wait. I stood in line behind that guy, I remember now!" Did anyone say that? We haven't heard of any such witness.
If my purpose were to inflict maximum carnage, I might have the shooter carry a spare rifle, but it would use the same magazines as the primary in
case of a malfunction. I'd not send him in with a different style that uses different ammo (eg a 12 ga). I'd not have the 12 ga loaded with bird
shot; that would be the choice if I were trying to create lots of noise and minor wounds, not likely serious ones. But a 12 ga would be useful if the
purpose were to indict even plain old shotties as weapons too dangerous for mere civilians to own. Weapons choice seems more optimized for political
impact than ballistic. Notice the shooter started out with the 12 ga.
At movie premieres, the emergency exit alarm is often disabled, because the audience is herded out the exit to keep them from remaining or going to
another theater. But in that event, an employee is stationed at the exit to make sure teens don't open the door to let their friends in through the
back. Was there conveniently no employee posted there this time, or did something happen to him/her? Likewise will the security videos conveniently
vanish like the oklahoma city and 911 pentagon videos? Were gunshot residue tests done on Holmes? Did he recently fire any weapon at all? Were blood
samples taken on admission to the jail (for tox/drug screen purposes)? Did the dropped equipment carry Holmes' or anyone else's DNA? Did DNA on the
distant mask match Holmes and nobody else? Were his fingerprints on every ejected shotgun hull or 223 casing? If not, those being wiped is in itself
Lots of questions. I expect that only evidence supporting the official story will ever see the light of day. That's the pattern in other incidents.
