phrawgh: digistil: thejoyofpi: If you're blaming this on Limbaugh without knowing anything about the shooter, you're a dumbass.

If you're blaming this on "terrorists" or "Islam" without knowing anything about the shooter, you're a dumbass.

I blame 0bamy. He can use it to plant a villain in a comic book, but not to save innocent people. So sad.

If you shot up a theater full of people, you didn't do that by yourself...


Except as of right now, apparently he did.

I'm pretty sure this was already covered, but I didn't read a response.

Why wasn't he stopped by a gun carrying bystander?

thejoyofpi: CliChe Guevara: coco ebert: White guys don't get called terrorists off the bat, if at all. Usually they're "mentally ill".

No;

"Mentally ill" specifically means only a far-right white guy with provable right-wing ties.
"Liberal" is what they call all other white terror suspects if they have no known ideological links, or a known but unprovable (or at least hideable) links to right-wing groups.

Remember, there are no violent Right-wing domestic terrorists - only violent Left-wing domestic terrorists, and "mentally ill" people.

I have never heard of a left-wing domestic terrorist. Don't be deluded. White guys with no known ties to Islamic groups are usually called "right wing militia extremists".


Far leftwing domestic-terrorists get elected to Congress. Everyone knows that.

There were at least 39 people injured to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates. Nicole Williams, with Swedish Medical Center, says the hospital was allerted to a mass casualty incident at 1:15 a.m. Friday. Williams says the hospital was told to prepare for up to20 more patients.
According to witnesses, the shooter kicked in the
emergency exit door in theater 9, threw some sort of disorienting smoke bomb and started shooting.
9NEWS has crews on scene. This article will be updated as more information is confirmed.

/UPDATE

Now it's 14 dead up to 50 injured.



I got 16 dead and at least 55 injured, wanna try for a 20/60 split?

Well whatever the Hell one was.


9 I think.

Gyrfalcon: fark'emfeed'emfish: kinda sounds like they found an accomplice who backed out to me, from the officer reporting live now. says they found a guy in a car wearing a gas mask with a rifle and a handgun. another firearm was found inside the theatre

That was the shooter according to the feed from the PD and FBI feed I'm listening to right now.


yeah, I'm sayin' it sounds more like somebody who decided to wait in the car

gadian: What was a baby even doing at that showing? Does no one hire a sitter anymore?


From what one of the witnesses on TV said, it sounded more like a girl of around 9 or 10.
They're trying to over-dramatize it now, as if the situation needed any more drama.
 
2012-07-20 05:39:15 AM
On the (kinda bright) side... at least they are very near a couple of really good trauma hospitals, including UCH and a Children's Hospital that has a really good Trauma ward too. Obviously, too many people died today, but hopefully their proximity to good hospitals will at least limit it somewhat.

It wasn't. The report from the police chief and the FBI agent says they don't presently believe there was another shooter.

mikaloyd: phrawgh: ...described as an "Indian" male? uh oh...

Woo woo Indian or telephone support Indian?


could be either looking at demographics for the area. both are under 1% of the population though.

"The racial makeup of the city was 61.12% White, 15.74% African American, 4.94% Asian (1.1% Korean, 0.8% Vietnamese, 0.6% Filipino, 0.5% Chinese, 0.5% Indian, 0.2% Japanese, 0.1% Cambodian, 0.1% Burmese, 0.1% Nepalese, 0.1% Pakistani, 0.1% Indonesian), 0.95% Native American, 0.3% Pacific Islander, 11.6% from other races, and 5.22% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 28.7% of the population; 21.9% of Aurora is Mexican, 1.0% Salvadoran, 0.7% Puerto Rican, 0.4% Guatemalan, 0.3% Honduran, 0.3% Peruvian, and 0.2% Cuban."

so who knows.

Although if another guy WAS waiting in the car, he'd already caught the next bus to the Mexican border before his buddy came out of the theater.

bob_ross: Relatively Obscure: bob_ross: Joking aside, I was in a theater shooting once. It was during Friday the 13th part VII: Jason Goes to Hell. The whole theater was hot-boxed (Alexandria on Geary in San Francisco) EVERYONE was talking, you could barely hear the farking movie.

The second credits started to roll, some guy stood up and yelled "Man, that shiat SUCKED" and fired at the screen. EVERYONE screamed and broke out the side door. Me and my buddy just hit the floor and looked at each other in sheer terror. Cops were there in minutes, don't think they ever caught the guy..

My buddy worked at that theater for years after. They never even bothered to repair the screen so I saw Friday (ice cube) for free like 12 times with an authentic bullet hole in the screen.

/was scary as shiat
//thought I was going to be Jason's final victim

Jason Goes to Hell was not Part VII. YOU ARE A PHONY! A BIG FAT PHONY!

/Keed.

Wait, was that 8 or 9?

Well whatever the Hell one was. Part 7 is still my favorite. Gave Jason a challenge. Thought it was Hodder's best performance as Jason.


"Jason Goes to Hell" was the 9th in the series.

Hodder was and is the best Jason, IMHO.

They're saying they had officers on duty anyway since the premiere was huge. Imagine how bad if they had to wait for them to arrive
 
2012-07-20 05:41:14 AM
From the press conference, the suspect was standing by his car armed with a rifle and a pistol, and told the police that his apartment has bombs in it. The apartment complex has been evacuated. I'm not going to speculate on his nationality, but it doesn't sound like a islamic fundie attack, more like an American nut job like the columbine shootings. Meh, i guess i did just speculate. Should be interesting to see what this guy's problem is, beyond him being a total asshole. I'm guessing white guy, mid 20's, American. But whatever, I'm glad they caught him alive.
 
2012-07-20 05:41:25 AM
Curious in what way was the emergency exit door "kicked in"? All those i've seen at theatres open outward and have security metal flanges covering the seam where the bolt is.

Could he have pried it and swung it open toward him?

Or; as obviously pre planned had it ajar ala free movie time leave exit ajar?

Watch Fox news. Even the Nazi White Supremacist Tea Party guy who shot up the Holocaust museum was referred to as a "Left-wing terrorist" by Fox. No shiat.
Watched Beck state flat-out that ALL domestic terrorist events in US history were by leftists. Like McVeigh. Also no shiat.

Knowing, as I do, how witnesses freak out in times of panic, I suspect he was already inside the theater, and any "kicking" of the door was him kicking it open from INSIDE to make his escape. Which would make sense since he was found outside in the parking lot.

One of the best things I ever did in my life was cut the 24/7 television news out of it. After the Giffords shooting, I was done. It's nothing but hardcore tragedy porn.

/ Tune in tonight for her funeral. Tune in tomorrow for the little girl's funeral. Stay tuned now for her drawings her parents had on the fridge. The day after tomorrow, we'll be arguing about whether or not a man you didn't know existed should go into space in light of his wife's condition. This is important. Watch it. All the time.

I'm watching the news (channel 9) not too far from there in a hotel lobby where my friend works... when that witness talked about the baby being shot at point blank, there was a collective gasp, it wasn't just the news lady who was taken aback by that.
 
2012-07-20 05:47:27 AM
Anyway, i'm off to work. I will pray for the victims that are getting help in the hospitals, and give internet hugs to the families of the victims. Bless you all.
