    Awful, awful day. No idea what caused this guy to go crazy, and I don't think we'll know for weeks. It's just too early to judge. Right now is the time to mourn and recover from the shock.

    I was glad to see that both presidential campaigns suspended themselves until Monday. Absolutely the right call.

    I think the police should have shot him to death and then claimed he tried to shoot the police.Because now tax money is going to have to be wasted to try him in court and some rat weasel lawyer is going to claim all kinds of irreverent **** to get his client off the hook like my client is insane or my client had a bad child hood or some other irrelevant BS.

    Theater Shooting Proves Signs Do Not Prevent Massacre
    The whining on the Right is almost as palatable as that on the Left with regards to this issue.

    You're right: the theater banning guns didn't prevent the shooting. And patrons carrying guns would almost assuredly have not saved one more life (in fact, given the killer's use of smoke and gas in his attack, it's very possible that more people would have been accidentally killed by do-gooder would-be heroes before the massacre was through).

    This is not a good example to base any argument around.

    Dude. WTF. Even Jerry Sandusky has rights. I'm glad this shooter lived, for the sole reason that his being alive gives us a much better chance at understanding his motives.

    This isn't about a pedophile. This is about a guy who went into a theater and shot up a bunch of people.

    Who gives a **** what his motives are.Knowing his motives will not prevent any future shootings.Nor will knowing his motives bring any of his victims back to life. Knowing his motives won't even make his victims feel better. The police ****ed up by not putting as bullet in his head and their **** up will cost tax payers millions of dollars and cause more grief for the victims and their families.

    Neither will sending out death squads to kill him.

    You hate the government? So do I. And, trust me, you don't want to give the State the authority to kill on command.

    Dark Knight Rises Paris premiere and press junket cancelled after US shooting

    The Paris premiere of The Dark Knight Rises due to take place at the Gaumont Marignan cinema on the Champs-Elysées on Friday evening has been cancelled, local French media is reporting.

    Earlier in the day, a junket at the Bristol Hotel in Paris was also cancelled, with journalists turned away as they arrived for their interviews.

    Top broadcaster TF1, which was to have featured an interview with French actress Cotillard on it flagship eight o’clock evening news programme this evening, also reported the interview had been cancelled.

    good point-the government should not execute the guy. rather the families of the dead children should be given the following

    2 hours access to this guy

    several crowbars, blowtorches and car batteries with jumper cables

    full gubernatorial pardons for all and anything they do during that 2 hour period
