Not much information right now. The court date is the 30th. You got big stuff going down in Anaheim that's taking precedence. Even this thread is at a crawl now.

Olympics taking lots of news time, and there honestly is not much new to report. Only things that have happened this week have been the funerals, which have seen heavy coverage here in Denver.

Not sure if this has been posted,
'Guns don't kill people... I kill people': Police foil 'copycat killer' wearing sinister T-shirt who called himself 'The Joker' and wanted to 'see boss's brains splattered on the floor'

Police have foiled what they believed could have been another Aurora-scale massacre after a man who called himself 'a joker' and had an arsenal of semi-automatic rifles threatened to shoot up the business from which he was being fired.

Neil Prescott, of Crofton, Maryland, was wearing a T-shirt that read 'Guns don't kill people. I do,' when first confronted by officers on Thursday, police revealed today.

The man, identified in a search warrant, told a supervisor at software and mailroom supplier Pitney Bowes that, 'I'm a joker and I'm gonna load my guns and blow everybody up,' and that he wanted to see the supervisor's 'brain splatter on the floor.'

The threats were made multiple times in separate phone calls this week, and investigators who searched the 28-year-old's apartment this morning found several thousand rounds of ammunition and about two dozen semi-automatic rifles and pistols.

The arsenal of weapons included one assault rifle, two shotguns, nine handguns and three rifles, according to the search warrant.

Prescott is receiving a psychiatric evaluation at a hospital and charges are still pending.

Can't seem to post the stories link.

I just read that the same woman (who had a miscarriage, lost her 6 year old daughter, and is currently fighting to stay alive) hasn't even been told that her 6 year old died. She's been in and out of consciousness it seems and with all the other trauma she's physically and emotionally dealing with, I guess they decided now is not the time to break the bad news to her. That poor woman. =\

I'm as far left and as "politically correct" as they come, but I think this is stupid. If he had some political treatise written out then I believe we can start calling him a terroist. Let's waste our energies on situations where blatant hypocrisy is ignored: ie., the anti-government libertarian who flew a plane into an IRS building. He was crazy and a terroist.

Looks like he's been charged with 24 counts of murder, as well as a bunch of other charges including over 100 charges of attempted murder. I have to admit I don't understand why the number of murders is double the number of people he killed.

I'm assuming they charged him with both 1st and 2nd degree murder for each one, resulting in the double count. However, I'm clueless about the attempted murder.

Can anybody design a fucking website anymore? I click on the link and tons of garbage comes up, freezes the site and doesn't let me scroll down and comes up with their terms and conditions. These are supposed to be professional websites but they look and function like complete ass.

116 counts of attempted murder. This dude is fried or going away forever.

It looks like first degree murder is premeditated, and second degree is when it was not premeditated or planned in advance. I find it hard to understand how you could kill someone having both planned it and not planned it in advance. There must be another explanation. The attempted murder charges are for everyone he didn't manage to kill, both in the movie theater and with his booby traps.

That's 12 counts of first degree murder, and 12 counts of murder with extreme indifference. Same distinction is made with the attempted murder charges. Thus the doubling.

A week after losing her 6-year-old daughter, Veronica, in the horrific Aurora movie massacre, Ashley Moser suffered a second tragedy.

The 25-year-old mom, who was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Dark Knight Rises premiere, suffered a miscarriage as a result of her injuries this past weekend.

''Ashley Moser is recovering from an additional surgery she had this morning,'' read a statement from the Aurora Medical Center, where she's been receiving treatment. ''Tragically, the extreme trauma she sustained also caused a miscarriage."

Crazy.

Maybe it's just so he can accept making a guilty plea for 12 murders instead of 24. Raise the charge, then lower it for a guilty plea.

But why? Whatever happens - whether he be charged for 12 murders or 24, he is going away for a long time or getting the death penalty (I'm not sure about Colorado law)

Colorado does have the Death Penalty, but the DA has stated they will go over it with the families before deciding as Colorado law allows a long appeals process, and a death sentence could drag out for over 20 years. We have a guy who committed a mass murder in 1993 who's still going through appeals.

People can't cope with the idea that someone would just up and do this, and so try to explain it away as something that was done by someone who could "pull it off" so they choose something big like the government.

It's like they can't believe someone so "minor" could cause so much tragedy.

Also, I hope he gets life. No death penalty. Don't drop to his fucking level, we're better than petty gangbanger-level revenge.

I agree the idea that it's a conspiracy is bullshit, but don't tell me this guy isn't bullshitting everyone trying to get some sort of fame out of this.

This guy is ACTING http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNcAMRAePZk

Trying to get attention out of this. You can tell even the interviewer realizes this. When the guy tries to end the interview, the guy starts to ramble endlessly to stay on the air. He constantly talks over the interviewer trying to prevent him from asking questions so he can just carry on rambling.

What a shitty actor.
