The police in Aurora say that James Holmes was the gunman wore complete SWAT team gear (including a tactical armored vest, throat protector, groin protector, a gas mask and a ballistic helmet) and opened fire on a theater full of movie goers at the Batman premier on Friday.
Mainstream media (MSM) is reporting that Homes dyed his hair red, calling himself “the Joker”; the arch-enemy of the Batman character.
Those who knew Holmes, like Billy Kromka , fellow pre-med student at the University of Colorado, said: “It was just shocking, because there was no way I thought he could have the capacity to do commit an atrocity like this.”
The question of Holmes being a violent criminal hell-bent on “killing everyone” does not add up when his personality and actions are scrutinized.
First off, Holmes was conducting research into neuroscience with his partner Kromka. Holmes was cooperative and easily surrendered to law enforcement. He informed police that his apartment was “booby trapped”.
Holmes arrived at the theater in complete SWAT team gear . MSM reported, according to a law enforcement officer, that Holmes had in his possession: “One rifle, two handguns, a knife, a bullet proof vest, a ballistic helmet, a gas device, a gas mask, military SWAT clothing and unidentified explosives were also found in Holmes’ car.”
Are to believe that a pre-med student had unlimited access to military grade weaponry without ties or connections to the US armed forces?
Witnesses now say that Holmes was not alone when he entered the theater but there was a second and yet, unidentified person with him, assisting in the initial stages of the attack.
