The medias are doing a good of a job at putting "batman" all over this story for sensationalism i do not see the need of the victims to label themselves as "batman" victims on top of giving James Holmes even more satisfaction.

They’re the victims. If they feel this is appropriate, then so be it, who are we to call them out? I mean, this guy killed 12 people and we’re going to question the victims on their dress code?
Batman is a symbol of justice, especially against evil like James Holmes, so that’s probably why they did it, in respect of what Batman stands for and in the respect of Justice.
I mean there’s always a zeitgeist feel with these Batman films. Before because of Heath’s death after such a great performance, and now, after such a powerful film something like this happens which again pushes the film into a very dark category. I feel it’s totally their call if they want to do this, and by no means is it a wrong decision.

Many people are in shock and trauma about the Aurora massacre ; if they want to wear a batman t-shirt and it makes them feel better; I see no harm in it.
Court of justice is one of our most sacred institution, if they want to wear batman t-shirts publicly to feel better they can, but being a victim does not allow you to not follow the court room dress code or violate the 6th amendment.
