I pity him deeply. It makes me cry just looking at him.
He is either extremely insane or he is a patsy. Either way he is a product of our culture. As are all of the poor deceased victims. Of course I cry for them as well.
This is our society's output. The entire episode is shameful from start to finish.
Modern life is so desperate and disconnected that no one stopped this. Not one soul intervened. Not his family and friends. Not his colleagues, people who should have been keenly aware of the symptoms of psychosis. Not the people who took the orders for large amounts of ammo. Not his neighbors or landlord who passed his apartment everyday. No one. No one truly saw him.
He was apparently totally alone in the world. His rage and isolation culminated in this. He sits in court a totally broken soul who cried out in the most horrific way to be seen.
We all see him now. But it's to late for him or his victims and their families.
There is something our society needs to learn from this and it's not just about guns or violence.

Holmes appears pretty much calm there.......unlike his court appearance where they drugged him to his eye balls.
