    I don't doubt it Possum, I know that in a 'small scale' for want of a better word crime, people have and will take action to protect themselves and others.

    My interest is in one of these horrible mass attacks, when there are large numbers of people involved. I know that groups as a whole are far slower to react than individuals, there is always a delay while a leader or first mover appears. It is a question as I say of genuine interest, because I don't recall any, but then I haven't studied it that hard. I suppose that is why soft targets like schools are often chosen, because they know that there wont be many/any? People carrying.

    To say nothing of the fact that he was so heavily armored that it would have taken a 50 calibre, which you aren't going to tote around in your side pocket, to take him down...

    Why did he chose THAT movie? Not another one. There is some connection I am sure.

    Of course there's a connection. He identified with The Joker in the second movie. He told the police that's who he was.

    The fact that he picked a midnight premiere of a highly anticipated movie, tells me he wants people to associate the movie with him and what he did. In other words, he'll be famous. At least until people move on to the next tragedy.

    He's not insane, he's evil. He wanted fame, and this is how he decided to get it.

    Exactly Speed. This guy's lawyers are going to go for a not guilty by reason of insanity plea on him and may well get it. Unfortunately, he knew exactly what he was doing, had it planned to a T. Personally, I'd like to see him get the death penalty and have it carried out as soon as possible. I'm tired of our tax dollars going to support jerks like this.

    There are lawyers that will abuse every possible angle, so I am sure you are right, possum...but it would seem to me that the fact that it was premeditated would make any reasonable thinking person (which automatically eliminates all trial lawyers) rule out the possibility of an "insanity" plea....unless he escaped from an institution recently, or something.

    It always bothers me that the OK bomber was, in fact, executed within short order (a couple of years, I think)...but other murderers sit on death row for 20 years. It is as if their victims are "less dead", or something. No doubt this guy will be a lifer.
