    Gun attack at Batman film premiere in Denver [W:120]

    BBC News - Gun attack at Batman film premiere in Denver

    Breaking news as I write this. Reported that 10 dead and 2 gunmen, and 1 arrested.

    Speculation is now what the motivation is.

    14 killed 50 wounded as of yet, a terrible tragedy. One can only wonder what would prompt such an act.

    The initial reports make this sound organized and planned, if more than one shooter I personally suspect jihadi or similar anti-western / anti-American motivation. Too many dead and injured, my prayers go out to all the effected people and families.
    The question is more important than the answer!

    Police say there was only 1 person and he is in custody. He is a local.. well he has an apartment near by.

    Also the car that is being investigated has Tennessee plates...

    This is starting to smell more and more like it is a nutter and not a "jihadist".

    Holy crap. That sounds like more than just some lone psycho spree killer.

    ****ing hell.

    First question... Pete, are you implying straight off the bat this guy was a Romney Supporter.

    Disputatious, are you honestly suggesting that your evidence for this being a Jihadi attack was that it was "organized" and that they attacked a Batman film in Denver... I'm pretty sure there are more high profile targets then that for Jihadists...

    Both of you shut up til we have some solid info.

    It does sound organised but, according to the BBC, the FBI have ruled out any terrorist connection. I'm afraid you'll have to deal with home-grown wacko theories. In any case, one guy is in custody, so we'll know sooner or later what the motive was.

    Who knows, it is speculation. There has to be some link to the movie and I was only mentioning the two things that have been up in the media and web over the last week or so.. death threats against the director and the whole idiotic "Bane/Bain" bull**** from some on the right.

    Both of you shut up til we have some solid info.
    So you are against free speech now?

    Are you honestly not comprehending the difference between evidence and speculation, especially in breaking news which by its nature is lacking in hard evidence during reporting. As an example the initial reports of more than one shooter and original low reports of injured and dea ?
