    CO - James Holmes Trial Discussion - Begins April 27, 2015 #10

    Jury selection to begin in trial of James Holmes in Colorado theater massacre

    It will have been 914 days since authorities say Holmes burst into a packed suburban movie theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora, tossed a tear gas canister into the crowd and opened fire. The first panicked 911 call came at 12:38 a.m. on July 20, 2012.

    The gunshots came less than a second apart, round after round, until 12 people were dead and more than 70 others injured, some permanently, in the barrage of shotgun and semiautomatic gunfire let loose during a screening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight

    snip

    The Holmes trial is expected to last much of 2015; jury selection could take until late spring. And should the death sentence be imposed upon Holmes, now 27, legal experts predict two decades of appeals.

    A staggering 9,000 summons were mailed to prospective jurors in Arapahoe County. It is a net so wide that in a county with about 500,000 eligible jurors, nearly 1 in 50 residents could receive notices.

    But first a jury must be seated.

    And I guess I am confused as to what cottonweaver is referring to - are you teed off that JH didn't bring it up, or that the doc didn't bring it up?? This was not a school shooting, so not sure it would be a fair comparison. I admit I could be taking this whole post wrong though...
    Missed that - I was rolling tortillas!

    Lanza had compiled a spreadsheet of results of his research into school shootings and the number of fatalities specifically was an issue- getting the most "kills" . ( AFAIK a major motivation was to "out-do" Columbine. )

    Sorry I wasn't clear. I mean that both psych should have made a ref to JH during questioning, re his poss research into other young male spree killers .
    I appreciate JH is totally evasive and manipulative but there is a way they could have got him to spill that he was very aware of their pseudo-philos ( Columb) and how they are hero-worshipped ( by some sad teenage individuals- yup it gets the girls interested out there in weird world) and the ranking notions - total kills etc.)

    Its not a school shooting but they share so many key features ( perps, MO, grudge/rage motivations etc) and it should have been a question - why not go to the Univ Col and do it at Neuroscience? Of course he would have used the cop-out " too personal" but maybe it was pure tactics & familiarity :- theatre = confined and dark, more fatalities!

    Well, I don't think that they would have made reference to Sandy Hook because it was after Aurora. That wouldn't have been a fair comparison to make, because JH couldn't have researched it.

    I wonder if now that JH has spent the past three years dealing with the court system if he wishes he had committed suicide.

    OOPS - Well at least I don't come across as an expert in school shootings!!!

    I'll look for something on the spreadsheet though- I haven't dreamt that part.

    P.S. Have you read any of those Columbine ramblings and nihilistic theories written by the murderers? What's stranger is that some young people admire those writings. I do think this connects with JH wanting to "philosophise" and theorise his motivations, dressing them up to make them grander/more intellectual than they really were ie. feelings of rejection and disappointment.

    Brauchler: Why did he stop shooting? Metzner believes AR-15 jammed and JH couldn't clear it. #theatershooting

    Pros. is going through yes/no?’s which would indicate JH was insane. All answers are no - pointing to sanity

    Metzner on tossed psych exam: Holmes never said anything about "master power." (Key 2 see if code overrode rationality pre-#theatershooting)
