Bear with me here as this probably highly unlikely but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway.
What if James Holmes and Jacob Tyler Roberts were both being blackmailed into creating 'terror' like this?
Maybe not from the government but from a third-party.
From reading through this thread everyone is confused how a 17 year old could get their hands on such a gun, fire that many rounds and miss.
Could be a new form of 'terrorism' on American soil

Anyone notice the ends of the shooter's hair look photoshopped in the one picture that's being shown a lot? May not be anything. Maybe they took a picture of him with family or friends and cropped them out but anyone who has experience with photoshop or any kind of photo doctoring knows the hair is one of the hardest things to get right.

In light of the results of photo examination, I note that the witnesses, no matter how many were actually at the mall at the time, none saw his face, right?
So anybody could have been behind that mask. We have no way of knowing that the person who's photo and ID we have been given was really the shooter.

Stan McMillan, a former police officer, is the "voice" of the man witness who went to the apartment after. His gf is the "voice" of the female.
I have been listening to these news briefs and guess what? They are the same voices!
The Stan McMillan version THIS TIME is that he was at the mall, he left, texted his female friend who the gunman stuck the gun in her face but it jammed. She escaped.
I can hardly wait for the next news brief.
In the last one, the woman witness account, (same as the previous voice also), tells that she saw the gunman
and ran to her vehicle and (dry sniff), she was happy she escaped.
If you've been following my "radio news brief" accounts as I hear them, then you may recall that the first witness who made it to the reporters claimed he was ordered to the ground by the gunman, he yells, FU, jumps up and runs away thinking he is following his gf. Only it turns out she is after him so he turns and waits til she catches up. Wow. Same guy's voice.
Funny as he turned to look behind him he doesn't say what the gunman is doing that he and she are able to just run away while everybody else is on the ground!
They run to some nearby apts. But, show up again to give us these blow by blows to the media.edit on 12-12-2012 by PaperbackWriter because: (no reason given)

Ok so first the blue background photo him with long shaggy hair thats a DMV photo.
there was another person whom came into direct contact with roberts ....................he didnt shoot him. just stopped and looked at him and as they say the eyes are the window to the soul he had a "worried" look that suddenly turned serious as he turned AWAY from the man and went down the hallway stairs.......that muct have been just minutes before he "killed" himself.
face to face encounter
Roberts told Curry that his mother died at childbirth and he never met his father, she said. He left his maternal aunt's home at age 14, Curry said.
"He raised himself," Curry said. "He was doing it all on his own."
A friend from high school, Jordan Salazar, said she understood that Roberts' parents were not present in his life.
The Oregonian said one of its reporters went to the Portland home of Roberts' mother Tuesday night, but that she declined to comment except to say, "I loved my son very much."
Jacob's mother was born on December 10 and died when she was 22-years old. Jacob went on the shooting rampage the day after her birthday, at the age of 22. No one has said if they believe this somehow contributed to his motive.
