I just wanted to start this thread so it didn't get buried in all of the other threads that are talking about this shooting. I will try to find a live feed link, but am not having any luck at this time.

Has anyone found out what kind of nurse his mom was?

Do we have any more info regarding what his dad's involvment with the DOD was?

Why haven't they released his mugshot yet? I know we were able to see him on video, but why not a mug shot from when he was arrested? Seems weird to me.

Why did his roomates just dissapear?

You have some really good questions...ones that I want answers to also.

I was wondering this morning as I watched the proceedings with him in the courtroom; where is his family? Why aren't they there supporting him...but then I think...maybe they just can't.

Its very sad.

Ya know - - his family are victims too. They're gonna need to protect themselves and his sister.

I can't even imagine what I would be going through if it had been my child.

I've seen that look before, on a mate of mine who went completely schizophrenic. In fact Holmes' whole demeanor in the courtroom looked exactly like my mate used to act when he'd stay up for days on end and the result being a combination of lack of sleep and an unhinged mind.

It's a crying shame this wasn't dealt with before Holmes snapped.

Maybe it was. We don't know.

But - - as a legal adult with no known record of criminal behavior - - - what could have been done?

And if he was on meds - - - he wouldn't be the first to go off them.

I don't see any conspiracy here.

I find it hard to believe nobody noticed.

Mental illness is not the same as motive. It might be a factor, but not the direct cause. Most schiziphrenic's minds are so scattered they could not possibly have made the elaborate preperations for the act we see in this case.

What I am getting at, and I care not what people think of me for saying this, is that this man should not be given the death penalty. While, yes, I am against the death penalty in general, I feel especially strong in my view against it in this case. This man committed a terrible crime, yes, but killing him is not the answer.

I'll quote kosmicjack in another thread on the issue, it sums up my thoughts perfectly about this tragedy...

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.

I'm not going to argue with that.

I learned a little bit about Schizophrenia from a friend who's daughter was diagnosed. Apparently - it mostly begins in teen years or as a young adult.

Her daughter showed no signs of anything wrong until about age 20. And symptoms develop slowly. It is not an instant diagnoses.

It is possible no one including himself knew he was Schizophrenic.

Why did his roomates just dissapear?

- His mom is a RN and Case Manager at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside Ca.

- His dad is a software engineer in San Diego with Fair Issac aka FICO. Doesn't look like he has DOD connections from these links..

www.sandiegoreader.com...

content.usatoday.com...

He was raised in an upper class area of San Diego. Many of SD's local pro athlete's live in that general area. He went to school at Westview High School in the Poway School District, probably the best district in San Diego county.

I haven't seen anything about his roomates. Aside from him having two roomates back in 2011 when he moved into the apartment.

This guy was obviously highly intelligent, majoring in Neuroscience and then going into a PhD program. Maybe the stress of the PhD program was too much, possibly disappointing his parents and forcing his withdrawal and sending him over the edge.

They say there's a fine line between genius and insanity.
