    Some kill because they are angry. No mental illness, just fed up.

    Some kill because they caught their spouse in bed with another. That falls under crime of passion.

    Some kill for money.

    Some kill to be rid of a responsibility.

    Some kill for the thrill.

    Some kill for notoriety.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    IMO, all those could be true, as could mental illiness!

    A girlfriend?

    This is in the MSM today:

    "The gunman who allegedly killed 12 people during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado was due to be kicked out of his apartment and may have broken up with a girlfriend in the days before his shooting spree, it has emerged."

    Does anyone have any leads on who the girlfriend is?

    Apparently, he was prescribed several medications before committing the murders. So, if that is the case, the jail cannot withhold those medications from him. Now, what those medications actually are, I'm not sure.

    Yes, I'm in Boston this week

    and it's been all over the news. I didn't read the linked article but I've heard the story about the guns being the same as "no-name's" and clippings about the colorado killings and he told them he had gone to the Batman movie with a gun etc. He was stopped for speeding going 112mph. Apparently he has told police he was going to shoot his employer-he had abruptly quit his job last week.

    He hasn't been put on any meds while in jail.
    Just my opinion

    And I can guarantee at any jail in the country, if you come in spitting at everyone, they are going to medicate you and quickly.

    While you can guarantee it, I don't think that rumor about him spitting is accurate.
    Just my opinion

    Old but relevant article.

    They Threaten, Seethe and Unhinge, Then Kill in Quantity ( link )
    By FORD FESSENDEN; Reporting for this series was by Fox Butterfield, Ford Fessenden, William Glaberson and Laurie Goodstein, with research assistance from Anthony Zirilli and other members of the news research staff of The New York Times
    Published: April 09, 2000

    They are not drunk or high on drugs. They are not racists or Satanists, or addicted to violent video games, movies or music.

    Most are white men, but a surprising number are women, Asians and blacks. Many have college degrees, but most are unemployed. Many are military veterans.

    They give lots of warning and even tell people explicitly what they plan to do. They carry semiautomatic weapons they have obtained easily and, in most cases, legally.

    They do not try to get away. In the end, half turn their guns on themselves or are shot dead by others. They not only want to kill, they also want to die.

    That is the profile of the 102 killers in 100 rampage attacks examined by The New York Times in a computer-assisted study looking back more than 50 years and including the shootings in 1999 at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., and one by a World War II veteran on a residential street in Camden, N.J., in 1949. Four hundred twenty-five people were killed and 510 people were injured in the attacks. The database, which primarily focused on cases in the last decade, is believed to be the largest ever compiled on this phenomenon in the United States.

    [...]

    These are among the findings:
    • While the killings have caused many people to point to the violent aspects of the culture, a closer look shows little evidence that video games, movies or television encouraged many of the attacks. In only 6 of the 100 cases did the killers have a known interest in violent video games. Seven other killers showed an interest in violent movies.

    • In a decade that had a sharp decrease in almost all kinds of homicides, the incidence of these rampage killings appears to have increased, according to a separate computer analysis by The Times of nearly 25 years of homicide data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Still, these killings remain extremely rare, much less than 1 percent of all homicides.

    • Society has turned to law enforcement to resolve the rampage killings that have become almost a staple of the nightly news. There has been an increasing call for greater security in schools and in the workplace. But a closer look shows that these cases may have more to do with society's lack of knowledge of mental health issues, rather than a lack of security. In case after case, family members, teachers and mental health professionals missed or dismissed signs of deterioration.

    [...]

    Perhaps the aspect that most set these crimes apart, aside from their spectacular nature, was this: Regular criminals try to get away with their crimes. More than a third of regular homicides went unsolved in 1997. But among the 102 killers in the Times database, not one got away. Eighty-nine never even left the scene of the crime.

    Lets please try to keep things civil. This is a very sad and tragic incident that has happened. Many people have many different theories thoughts and ideas which is ok. Its good to hear everyones point of view even if we dont agree with them. Its good to talk through things but please keep it nice.

    No. You will quickly be placed in restraints, a spit guard placed on you and moved to isolation. Jails do not take it upon themselves to dispense medication. If you are convulsing on the floor, they'll come in & take you to the hospital. If you are already on a prescription med, you do not automatically get it. It can take days for a prescription to be validated, brought in & dispensed.

    I mean, did he say, Hey, I'm on XXX med and I need it!!
    Ok, let me run to CVS and get that for you! Or better yet, have a friend bring in an opened bottle of pills and we'll just take your word on what it is.

    He is being held in county, not State or Federal where there is typically medical staff (other than a booking nurse) employed.

    In my Sheriff days back in CA in the late 1990's, we did NOT automatically send a spitter to the nurse's station for meds.

    Spit masks, have them sit there for a few hours. Yep, worked many times.

    Just my experience.
    There was never any names given of who exactly claims JH is a spitter. And the jail official denied it. And another article claim JH is very polite and says "thank you" to jail employees who bring him food. There is no indication than this spitting story is any more accurate than the one about JH not being medicated while in jail.
    Just my opinion
