    From the Washington Post:

    A neuroscience faculty member, who declined to be identified because of privacy concerns, described Holmes as “very quiet, strangely quiet in class,” and said he seemed “socially off.” Although Holmes got weak scores on the comprehensive exams last semester, the educator said, the school’s staff wasn’t going to toss him out. Instead, they planned to give him remedial instruction and perhaps put him on academic probation.

    ...Michael Welner, a forensic psychiatrist who, as chairman of the Forensic Panel of New York City, has studied and testified about mass shootings, said these cases invariably feature a person who is highly paranoid, resents the broader community and decides to kill out of a desire to achieve notoriety.

    “Some are so paranoid that they’re psychotic. Others are paranoid in a generally resentful way but have no significant psychiatric illness. But you have to hate everyone in order to kill anyone,” Welner said.

    “The threshold that the mass shooter crosses is one in which he decides that his righteous indignation and entitlement to destroy is more important than the life of any random person that he might kill.”

    I think it's also a no smoking zone. So if someone was smoking, that means we should just have it be smoking since that's what happens anyway.

    Which has nothing to do with what I said.

    if he really cared about whether or not the audience was armed, he would have picked a different theater.

    He had on a ballistic helmet, ballistic throat protection, ballistic groin protection. This guy was the $6 million man. Well....then there's inflation.

    There were military men present in the theater. They weren't able to do a thing.
    There's no such thing as, "bullet proof", body armor. Body armor is only bullet resistant, meaning that your chances of receiving a life threatening wound are greatly decreased. It still hurts like hell when you get hit. 4, or 5 rounds in the chest, from close range can subdue someone to the point where they can be disarmed.
