    I have found two James Holmes' in Aurora: a Tea Partier and a black man on Facebook. Take your pick who you'd like to blame without evidence, depending upon your political affiliations.
    I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad-redeemer (your Divine Democrat — your Hebrew Madman) and write over his thorn-torn brow, “The true prince of Evil — the king of the Slaves!”

    Well, here's the Tea Party profile for James Holmes out of Aurora:

    The guy has an event scheduled for July 26th, for what it's worth. I don't think it particularly matters - I think it's ignoble to try to level blame on a shooter's actions, whether it's Breivik and white nationalism or an Islamic jihadi. Individual responsibility must be meted out individually.

    Same goes if this guy proves to be OWS. Whatever his motivation, you can bet it will take center stage in a ridiculous media circus. What's going to be most disgusting is if this guy turns out to be nothing more than a deranged fan: you will hear calls from the religious-collectivistic Right and the nanny-statist Left alike to regulate media, along with a great deal of moral billowing about the evils of superheros.

    I can't believe people are trying to insert politics into this tragedy. No matter what his political affiliations, his religion, or his race he is a deranged nut nothing more.

    As a comic book fan, I really feel terrible about this. This was supposed to be a great day for us all, the end of a fantastic franchise. That people are trying to solidify and find some kind of reason to what is COMPLETELY senseless is ridiculous. There is no political connection that you could possibly link to killing people at a movie theater who are there to have a good time. A bomb at an embassy? A bomb at a government building? Sure, one can attack those for political reasons. But killing people at a theater, a restaurant or a place with zero connection of any kind to politics? That's just murdering civilians for the hell of it and to instill fear. I'm not an advocate of the death penalty, but I won't really get too worked up about whomever did this getting the chair.

    I agree with you, though I'd hope you'd feel the same way if his name had happened to be Abdul.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Apparently the guy was a medical student. Seriously why would you throw away a great career and do something like this.

    I'm even more worried if this fellow turns out to be a random sociopath than I would be if he were working some quasi-political angle. If that's the case, you can rest assured there will be a media-led uproar against "violent media", just as there was in the aftermath of Columbine. It's pretty sad that people can't accept the fact that these things happen, like wind through the leaves.
