Totally faking.
 
2012-07-24 11:47:39 PM  
Faking. He did everything but rock back and forth

M³ say, is easier for smart man to appear crazy, than for crazy man to appear smart

/YMMV

I'll go with D, the media likes to speculate when they don't have anything solid.

No way a raving loon could plan out an attack like that.
 
2012-07-24 11:57:22 PM  
I don't understand why it's relevant.

It's one thing if a guy steals a candy bar or something from Walmart to find out if he's crazy or sane. One goes to jail, the other goes to the hospital.

But when someone kills 12 people and injures another 58? It shouldn't really matter. Either way, they should be dealt with the same. In fact it's even worse if he didn't know what he did was wrong because then he'll do it again and be happy. Much better for all involved if he's fast tracked for Ol' Sparky, who should be dusted off and shipped to Colorado expressly for this case.

I have seen both fakers and non-fakers behave in this manner after having (or faking) a psychotic episode. But the similarity to a couple of people who were genuinely psychotic pulls my attention.

Not that it matters. I agree that it's ridiculous to only employ the insanity defense in capital or life penalty cases.
 
2012-07-25 12:09:07 AM  
Yeah this guy is really crazy if he thinks he's going to pull off a "not guilty by reason of insanity" deal. Not gonna happen, pathetic Joker wannabe. You're going to spend the next several decades alone in a hole and then you can go crazy the honest way.

I think it matters. Crazy? Kill him. Sane? Put his ass in ADX Florence and let him rot. Solitary confinement for 22hrs a day for the rest of his life is a fate worse than death. Most everyone that's sentenced to that fate goes crazy slowly. The brain rots.
 
2012-07-25 12:16:27 AM  
He should go down either way but I'd be interested in what his motives were besides "crazy", just out of curiosity.


"And stop using my name!"

I saw the 20-second-or-so clip of him nodding off and thought he's faking it. Reminds me of my kids when you ask them to pick up the house - suddenly they're too tired and they're making the same exact face. Bullshiatters.

I've always thought the death penalty would be something I would look forward to in that situation, which is a reason I'm against the death penalty. Hell, I've been locked up for the weekend in the county pen once or twice and I thought I was going to entirely lose it, and that's an all-expense paid vacation in a resort hotel compared to where this guy is going to spend his decades.

Makes me think of that Stephen King story "The Jaunt." Longer than you think Dad!

I'm going to post the following in every single thread about "Sideshow Bob" that I see on here:

I actually think this stupid meme is extremely insulting to the victims. Sideshow Bob is a hilariously inept cartoon villain. This person is a human being who ruthlessly slaughtered men, women and children. To refer to this person as an amusing Simpsons character is vile and disgusting.

That's the point. Sideshow Bob was a "hilariously inept cartoon villain". A lot of mass murderers crave infamy. This is a way of mocking him and denying him that infamy.
 
2012-07-25 12:53:28 AM  
I am not sure why people think he is faking teh crazy. I can't fathom what sane motive he would have for shooting 71 people. I guess I don't get the logic. That said, I saw the YouTube videos Jared Loughner posted. biatch was cray cray. Haven't yet seen similar evidence with Holmes, other than the obvious, shot a bunch of people.

So to recap: why do we think he is faking and what was his motive? I don't speak nut job so I don't quite get it.

Yeah but we have no idea what his motivations were. And you're not using the meme in some subversive fashion, you're using it because Drew told you to.

Denying him infamy by permanently associating him with a much more popular and ubiquitous figure? Really? In 3 years we'd be all "James who?" if we referred to him by his real name. Now, everytime a Simpsons rerun comes on, we'll be thinking of this dipshiat.

I'm not so sure you've thought your plan all the way through.

For some reason this meme strikes as particularly appalling. 99% of the time I love Fark's irreverence. But this is sickening on two levels. One: making a cartoon character out of a person who murdered 12 people. Two: how eagerly so many of you do whatever Drew tells you to.

I'm not using it because "Drew told me too". I'm using it because it's derisive of someone who very much needs to be derided. I don't even know that Drew started it, but it's a good idea.

It doesn't feel right because a dozen people weren't gunned down by a goofy cartoon charater. They were killed by a real person, with a real name. Referring to him as a joke name is grotesque.

Oh, wow, OK, so you know Holmes' motives. I'm sure the prosecutor and the victim's families would be interested to learn what you know.

Analyzing the female analyst's behavior, her breathlessness and word-tumbling indicate she's confused, over-stimulated (perhaps by the frantic pre-prompting by TV "news" producers), insecure, and grappling with desperation just to survive this pointless stupidlyh compressed overly-public hype-filled chaotic fast-cut idiotic interview.

She needs some time to collect herself, maybe have an orgasm or nine (no, I'm booked solid, would love to help out though.)

But at least the TV jackals got their minutes out of her.

The guy isn't some hilarious and incompetent cartoon villain who shows up from season to season only to be outsmarted by a 4th grader. I get that submitters and Drew think this is a good idea so he never gets the super villain status that he wants but that isn't working with 12 people refrigerated.

And who doesn't like, or at least, who hasn't liked the Simpsons? If we are going to call him something, let's agree to call him something we all hate. Like Carrot Top or whatever.

2012-07-25 01:14:09 AM  
What does strike me as a little odd (and why I think he's faking) is that your typical nutso mass murderer usually plans to "go out in a blaze of glory" after his killing spree, either by shooting himself or suicide by cop. This guy did not. He wore full body armor to prevent himself from getting killed.

He was not wearing any body armor at all.
