Was wondering the same thing. Guess this is no longer relevant to most.
Not only is it amazing, given the current increase of rhetoric with the whole "gun control issue" being brought up recently. That, and the amount of
unknowns / what if's / and very strange things surrounding this whole ordeal, and it makes me wonder if that whole gag order ultimately worked as
Yes, there are some major factual anomalies in this case, some of which have been pointed out in the other threads here... and on the 'net in
general. I won't even attempt to list or link them all, just provide a synopsis of the odd ones for the new readers,
The main ones that I find strange, in order of magnitude:
1. The suspects car:
a. Why were both of the passenger side windows broken out?
When we were told:
Officer Jason Oviatt said that after arriving at the scene of the shooting to find victims bleeding on a street corner, he followed a "trail of
blood" and ran with his gun drawn to the back of the cinema building. There, he said he saw Holmes wearing a gas mask, helmet and clad head to toe
in body armour, standing next to a white car with the driver's door open. He said he initially thought he must be a police officer.
Relevant Questions: If the drivers side door was already open - then who broke out the passenger side windows, and why? Holmes (did he try to get back
into his car?) Police? (if he was actually found in
the car instead of outside, as stated)
b. The notebook (supposedly sent to Fenton)
Possibly, but I have no proof that is the said package at this stage.
2. Gas masks: Total of four - (admitted that 2 of which belonged to Holmes)
Fyles testified that police they found four gas masks, although only two belonged to Holmes.
Why would he have a second mask, and furthermore.... a spare Glock in the passenger side door pocket, while I can't find a link to the where the
second pistol was found, I'm sure I've read it in the last few days.
Not to mention the booby trapped apartment, and going through the lengths on taking protective measures (body armor) and then willfully surrendering
with no attempt to resist or otherwise take another way out, (which had to be said)
Ultimately, I'm left pondering the very real idea that Holmes might not have been alone in his planning and preparations for this, and that could be
why there is a total shutdown of information regarding this.
