they had better hope this guy isnt channeling the joker why. the joker in the comics is a serial killer who gets sent to insane asylum instead of death row he will sit in the metal hospital plotting his next murder spree then bust loose and go on the rampage. the one in the comics has a genius level intellect and has extraordinary chemistry skills. one of his favorite deadly devices is the infamous smiley or smilex gas. which is a nerve gas that cause victims to die with a joker like smile on there face. if this guy is trying to be like joker and he is a genius level is his apartment could have be booby trapped with chemical weapons he might not have made nerve gasses like vx but i am sure he could have made stuff like chlorine or mustard gases weapons. and the joker from comics if he was caught might have device hid in city

^This^
Even if purchasing the weapons & armor is legal, doesn't that warrant
a visit from Postal Inspectors/Feds when someone is stockpiling hardware
to that extreme?

Simple statement to make, and I know that the OP had to follow ATS rules with the title, but otherwise the rag that had to include 'dark knight' commas inverted or not is using pure sensationalism, and no respect for those who perished, they should apologise, the bunch of 'effing sicko's. It was a mass killing in a cinema, same as School, Mall or anywhere else, with no known rationale as yet, and to presume so is to prejudice whatever happens next.

I thought ABC news retracted the OWS statements? Never heard original statements about that, but read someplace they were retracted.

I knew the guy would probably be somewhat out of it but holy flying pigs, he seemed completely drugged and fighting off unconsciousness.

Been reading / watching and just don't know what to make of it all.

Semi off subject: I saw the interview with family lawyer a while ago. Not his lawyer, she was hired to rep. family, guess his parents mostly, and she seemed to have the weirdest "teeth licking" tic I have ever seen. It reminded me of former friends who would ingest coc aine by putting it on their gums. She never stopped and all I could think is I would go nuts if I had to watch her in a court room all day. Not to offend anyone living with / suffering with tics. I understand the phenomena and provide respite care for an autistic child who has them. Anyone else notice this?

That was extremely disgusting what you did right there.

In your haste to crucify "society", you lumped the scumbag killer in with the innocent. The victims families refuse to even mention his name and publicly stated this yet you come along and lump them all together in the same sandbox.

So next time you use haste to push your agenda of society is to blame for everything, pause a moment, there is no need to ruin your argument by coming across as distasteful.


You have that to say and then you post this:

I'd rather hear which websites he frequented to bash the US and support terrorists. He probably touted the virtues of Socialism also by his now proven OWS ties.


In your haste to crucify OWS you are the one being distasteful and disrespectful by using this incident to push your agenda.

Just an FYI on Carolyn Chambers. She is as dishonest and dirty as they come for a D.A.

Riddler/Bane > Joker.
At least riddler tested what made Batman,Batman. His ingenuity,resoursefulness and detective/research skills.
Bane tested him physically.
Joker was insane and was only dangerous because he was unpredictable. This guy is not really insane and he's a real person that killed real people with real guns.

I can't believe all the comments on here and YouTube that can be lumped into the category of believing everything that has been put up front.

Question everything, people. In my heart, I feel this is the product of something similar to MK Ultra, though I will not deny that it may not be that. Just, insanity. That bugged out look in the photo taken at the time he was arrested, and during the court video. His head is bobbing back and forth. It's easy to write off that he was sedated to keep him under control. He seems in a shockened state of disbelief, like a dead soul occupying a human vessel. Watching the ABC video showed a different human entirely. From the reports, the past 2-3 months was a radical rewiring of this guy's brain based on what we've been told.

- There are few that know, or will speak about him.
- His Mother apparently stated that he changed entirely as a person in the past 2-3 months, and that she was not surprised that this happened.
- The theater door scenario makes little to no sense.
- Admitting about his apartment after so much intricate work arming the vicinity near the door makes little to no sense.
- No photos of the inside of the apartment is a big deal.

This appears to run far deeper than someone who jumped off the deep end and is now only understanding the consequences and sorrow of his actions. While I feel no remorse for him based on what he had done, willing or unwillingly at heart, this entire thing makes little to no sense and deserves so much questioning. Not to shine spotlight on him, but to understand the entirety of what happened.

These events create a standstill of questions, people want to respectfully focus on the victims which I am all for, but with the aura the news puts off, it instills fear, caution and disbelief on a scale that goes about rewiring our consciousness and what we think about the world, and especially, this senseless crime.

Something is NOT right.

And I have to question if the full court video will be released. I hadn't seen it, but I had heard from others that many parts were cut out or glitching while it aired.

He never talked about the government at all.

He was just a normal guy studying for his doctorate. No political agenda at all.

I know. As I said in another thread, even if he was passionate about a particular political ideology there is still the leap from sane person to psycho that cannot be explained.

I'm just tired of people using this incident to push their personal agenda. It's obvious and insulting to our intelligence.

That is probably the truest reflection on this tragedy that I have seen over the last few days, anywhere on the web. Well said.

Apologies for having a weak moment and replying to an off topic post instead of simply ignoring. My bad.

If this is MKULTRA, why couldn't someone else have committed the act and Holmes was instructed to wait in the car and give himself up?

The Riddler and Bane are flat and two dimensional compared to the Joker. Read Miller's 'The Killing Joke.' Joker is Batman and Batman is Joker....two guys with similar fractures in their psyches but with diametrically opposed (or are they?) manifestations of those fratures.....
