    I believe that, in cases like this, if he is judged "insane", then he is usually given meds until he understands what he did, and is then put on trial.

    That's called "luck."

    The former point is why I can't take much of this, "people should have shot him...I would have shot him...shooting him would have helped...blah, blah, etc.." seriously. It's just as ridiculous and completely speculation based as the "gun laws would have stopped this" nonsense is. Most people have never been shot at and certainly not in this type of scenario. As far as I'm concerned, it's just as likely or more that the "heroes" would have been shot dead on the spot by the man in the bullet proof vest and the gas mask than they would have stopped him or slowed him down.

    Both sides of gun issue on this just want to believe that they have the answer. They don't.

    Islam is a discriminative religion and Jihad is a part of it, and since the peneprator was an Indian Muslim, the attack is probably "Jihadist".
    My Iranian boss was in prayer for the victims for more than an hour this morning, and during this time, he forbid me to do any work, although he still paid me, and most of my Muslim friends were horrified, and prayed for the victims at Friday prayers in their Mosques today. With all due respect, your post is an insult to decency.

    I'm pretty sure it's called, "panic, take cover, don't shoot back, don't get shot, leave and survive" and it's kept the majority of people in the targeted area alive in nearly every mass shooting like this that we've had in this country. I'll take it over this, "let me be a hero and shoot this bulletproof vest, gas mask wearing, don't give a **** dude" attitude any day.

    I guess you missed all the cases where armed citizens have shot murderers. Including some old guy who stopped two armed youths.

    I have no worries dealing with someone with body armor-I know where to hit them

    and someone who has a helmet on and is knocked down-well I won't tell you how to do it but you can easily use that helmet to break their neck

    Not from what I heard on radio news. He'd told people to call him The Joker over the last several weeks. His plan was The Joker's plan in one of the Batman movies -- to get captured. That's why he just gave up to the coppers when they came. He was waiting for them by his car. At least that's the story as of a couple hours ago.

    Your post is an abomination. This is the jerkiest post I've ever read on Debate Politics.

    This is one of the most uncivilized comments I have read in weeks. Not, one of the most uncivilized comments I've read on DP in weeks. One of the most uncivilized I've read ANYWHERE.

    Thank GOD the police didn't listen to this patently absurd device. More than anything, Aurora deserves answers. And with the shooter alive, we may yet get those answers.
    There is nothing uncivilized about what I said.The fact is it doesn't matter why that nut job shot up all those people.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
