Where would he have gone? Drove to FL, then try to get a boat to Cuba, lol? Seems to me, if he REALY desired to not get caught, then he's a pretty short sighted idiot.
    Maybe he thought he'd do the same thing again, and be a villain like in the TV movies.

    Gun sales have jumped 41% in Colorado since shooting.

    It's good to see the people of Colorado are arming themselves.

    No, you don't see Joker in court.

    No mass killings on his behalf similar to the theater, IE with a gun. He tried to convince a boat of criminals to blow up a boat of civilians and vise versa....tortured an individual to prove his point about some demands....carried out a few murders of political figures (judge and police commissioner, and assistant DA)...killed some mobsters....blue up some cops.....but not really "grab a gun and shoot a bunch of random people"

    Can't disagree. But the message is that this appears to have had a longer term plan. We will have to wait to find out (possibly) what that extended plan was.

    Evidence suggests that the perp wasn't expecting to get caught...

    It kind of looks like he was planning on dying. It's kind of strange to see him alive. He is so young and he looks like he is in bad shape. I kind of hope he doesn't get death. He really needs a mental evaluation before a decision like that is made. I can't imagine how his parents feel right now. I am not making excuses for his actions. He should have tried to get himself help long ago.

    Also, the Joker has almost in all cases traditionally been depicted as having Green Hair (or at best, black with green highlights). In Comics:



    Video games:


    Cartoons:


    Movies:


    And TV:


    Green Hair is kind of iconic to the character's look. If someone is trying to "Be the Joker" it'd be like trying to "Be Superman" and wearing a Orange Suit instead of Blue.

    I think it's played up because it's based off generally speculative things, often seemingly speculated by people completely ignorant of the source material they're speuclating about, or statements by the kid, who we're seemingly told is a "genius" and "crazy" at the same time and we're supposed to magically believe couldn't possibly be stating the things for reasons other than the desire to be purely honest in his beliefs.
    He did have green hair. I noted that too, but for as bad as his hair looks now, if he dyed it green... it would have been a lot worse looking. I guess that maybe that's why he didn't dye it green. IDK. Maybe dying his hair had nothing to do with the joker though. Who knows. But I have never seen somebody dye their hair green... I have seen orange, pink, blue, but never green.

    He'll be back in court on the 30th. I am guessing he'll have the same hair style.

    This is what his hairstyle made me think of





    And for as odd as he looks and behaved in the courtroom, he isn't scary. He isn't scary on the same level I am sure the Manson followers were in the 60s.

    Re: Aurora shooting...Holmes had planned to escape.

    What should really make people realize about this guy is...he obviously had the knowledge and ability to kill the people in that theater without even being there. Think about it. He rigged up his apt, in such a way, that it took cops, what, 2 days, to really infiltrate? This is a person who, in my opinion, could have EASILY developed some sort of device, attended a portion of the movie in order to place and arm the device, leave, and activate it, killing nearly EVERYONE, without ever having to be in the room.


    But he CHOSE not to go that rout. He CHOSE to be present. To see his victims, as they died by his actions. Simply bombing the place was not what he was after. He wanted to see them, as he pulled the trigger. He wanted to witness death, to have that since of power you get, when you have something in your crosshairs.

    He's a dead man walking. My only real hope is, that we don't spend too much money convicting him.

    Re: Aurora shooting...Holmes had planned to escape.

    He'll probably never be allowed in the prisons general population. Other criminals are saying how they want to kill him already. It's kind of sick how they'll justify murdering somebody. Is killing somebody in prison some kind of sport to avoid boredom? I think it's really strange how prisoners have a moral code where murdering and raping other inmates is social duty and justifiable. They are a bunch of sickos.
