Well in the same live feed by abc news one of the anchors said that one of his professors called him a brilliant student who didn't have any signs of doing this.

When they caught him, did he have the armor on still? I haven't heard too much about how they actually found him.

I've heard the second person theories but I don't buy those either.. I believe that James was in the theater from the time the movie began .. his vehicle was parked at the rear and the police have stated that the rear door was propped open.. witnesses inside the theater said they witnessed a man getting up and walking to the exit .. where the shooter later emerged .. My thought is James came in with the crowd.. waited ... faked a phone call ( you wouldn't know if it was fake or not.. silent ring ) .. made for the exit, pretending to be respectful of the audience so nobody would be suspicious by him just leaving for no reason .. went outside after sliding something in the door to keep it from closing, suited up.. returned shortly after to begin what he sat out to do ..
It coincides with what the police said, finding the door propped.. and it works with eye witness testimony spotting an individual getting up and leaving.

This is more smokescreen from the media. He was just in court, and he looks "dazed" & "confused". He could be acting or maybe under the power of some drug.He doesn't look like a very calculating individual from first impression.Got "patsy" written all over him.

His college professors from 6 years ago, yes.. but where he was taking his Ph.D. course, the university has been ordered not to talk to the media, same with the staff there on campus.. they even took down the website for the department he was working in ..
The FBI person in the ABC news video is entirely right on the topic of schizophrenia.. you can be high level and functioning but your mental faculties slowly degrade over time.. if he truly does suffer from something like that then it makes sense that he would have been performing so well six years ago and then started to slip in recent months or years..
I'm not saying all the conspiracy theories are wrong.. but I am trying to inject some reason.. it could literally be the simple explanation is true.. it doesn't have to be an elaborate conspiracy ( and usually isn't )..
Either way, we'll learn more as this keeps snowballing.edit on 7/23/2012 by miniatus because: (no reason given)
"..they're insecure..they start having..perhaps, dark thoughts, that people are following them. Or..that, there are voices..auditory voices, that are directing them.."

If you have seen the video of him in the courtroom, look at him! And see if you can feeeel his emotions.
This guy's world just came crashing down on him. And he's smart enough to realize that he's been screwed big time.
Compare that to Anders Breivik, or any psychopath you've ever seen in a trial, and you will know what I am trying to say here.
Where are your hearts???
