    Maybe, instead of spraying perfume into rabbits' eyes to see if it hurts (how mean to the wittle bunny!), we could spray it into his? He could become the primary tester for all perfume manufacturers.
    No, I have a better idea. Make him a medical research project. Find out what causes these mental breakdowns at any cost. I don't care if they have to saw his head open, and dissect his brain.

    Could work. He won't be needing his brain anyway, considering where he's going.

    The Studio?


    Seriously.


    I feel bad for someone who has lost a friend, but why sue the studio? Oh yeah, lawyers are scumbags and the studio has the deepest pockets.

    I'll add this --

    It's my understanding, and don't ask me how I know this, but when you open the Emergency Exit of a movie theater, it sets off an alarm in the Managers Office and the Projector Booth.

    James Holmes had to prop the back door open, right? Did the theater's security not work, or did Holmes suit up so fast that the ushers couldn't get there in time?

    Also, aren't their usually CCTV cams in the theaters and outside?

    I think it's a justified lawsuit - partially.

    The theater IS responsible for security and safety and they explicitly did NOT have an alarm attached to the door which is pure neglect and a measure of stupidity.

    It would have prevented the door from being propped open, yes.
    It's also used to signify an emergency if evacuation is in progress - to gain attention.

    It's just common sense.

    Now - the lawsuit RE the producers of the film. . . that's just stupidity.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I'm just guessing here, but it is possible that the propped door may have triggered a silent alarm of sorts, but the theater employees were so busy they either didn't notice it or ignored it. And they may have ignored it because it actually happens quite often, maybe.

    If either of these are true, I'm not necessarily saying it would excuse the theater, just saying it may explain how and/or why.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The studio's policy of no guns directly lead to damages.

    What policy is that, exactly?
