    sort of hard to hide a automatic rifle in a bustier and fishnet tights.

    In college guys dressed up as various gangs for the movie THE WARRIORS

    dudes with baseball bats, hockey sticks

    even a Orthodox Jewish friend of mine in an expensive suit and a yarmulke was packing an evil looking switchblade.

    while the cops showed up they quickly realized it was nothing and they were right

    of course if I saw some guy in full body armor and a shotgun i'd know the crap was about to hit the fan

    if this guy is proven to be the killer should his organs be harvested to pay the victims back? seriously, he would owe over a billion dollars in civil suits. he cannot pay it

    he's 24 and other than his brain, most of his organs are probably healthy. seems to be the best use of this mope

    that would violate the Constitution's prohibition of cruel & unusual punishments.

    I disagree.. because they are in a different zone.. They have a plan and a weapon. I don't anticipate a crime every time I go to the bank or the grocery store or go for a walk or to the movies.

    well when the constitution was written he would have been hanged for this

    in the federal system he would be executed so death is not cruel and unusual

    so lets hang him (rather than frying or poisoning his organs) and then sell them off to help the victims

    that doesn't violate the constitution

    why do you keep leaving out the whole "trial" and "conviction" part?

    I agree with you Mya and as former military and law enforcement. I was vigilant and ready for the usual disturbances that may occur, but, I cannot say I would have anticipated the Holmes/Joker scenario. The best I could do under those circumstances would be to get people to safety and then try to figure out the situation.

    If I was on duty it would have been a different story I would have been looking for this type of aberrant behavior and been equipped to deal with it.

    Thank you, Higgins.
