Aurora movie theater shooting day 47: Defense to show video of James Holmes in custody
Day 47 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, the defense plans to show video of Holmes in custody. During the course of the trial, prosecutors will argue that Holmes, the admitted gunman, was sane when he went into the midnight premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater and opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and wounding 70. His defense attorneys will try to spare Holmes’ life by arguing that he was insane. 7NEWS and TheDenverChannel.com will have gavel to gavel coverage of the trial starting at 8:15 a.m. (MST) everyday and ending around 5:30 p.m. (MST) Watch new live video on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/7NewsDenver/live Additional resources:LIVE VIDEO & BLOG: http://bit.ly/theatertrialTIMELINE of the case: http://bit.ly/theatertimelineJURY PROFILE: http://bit.ly/theaterjury CONTINUING COVERAGE: http://bit.ly/theatercoverage

@Anica...what was the date the DT entered the plea of not guilty by reason of insanity?
by mld7/10/2015 4:31:20 PM

@Anica you must be able to see the video better then we are cause it's really blurry here to be requesting hazard pay... lol I'm sorry!!
by LG7/10/2015 4:31:25 PM
My view is blurry too... but what I can see is WAY TOO MUCH.
by anica.padilla7/10/2015 4:32:00 PM
@Della would you want to be the one alone with him? Besides that is not how Corrections work.
by NT87/10/2015 4:32:12 PM
They should have put him in the restraint chair not bed instead of having to have spend more babysitting resources on him!
by Trial watcher7/10/2015 4:32:13 PM
thanks for the info, i couldn't tell
by happy7/10/2015 4:32:15 PM
Looks like a video of someone coming down from a drug high. But he's not on anything so he is mentally ill or play acting or seriously in need of attention
by TLR7/10/2015 4:32:18 PM
I wonder if PT will also capitalize on @Trial's Watcher's point. Might not anyone demonstrate a psychotic break after being responsible for a mass shooting and being in solitary?
by Mr.D7/10/2015 4:32:19 PM
Who ever had to clean up the poop deserves major hazard pay too. lol
by Alison7/10/2015 4:33:29 PM
I feel like Benny Hill music should be playing for this with the guards in and out.
by Malingering7/10/2015 4:33:32 PM
Thank God for "blurry"
by sher7/10/2015 4:33:33 PM
I think haz du pay was $250 a month back in my days, not worth it to watch this for that money.
by NT87/10/2015 4:33:38 PM
Worked at a residential center for intellectually deficient people while going through college. Had to bathe a 40 year old man who refused to bathe himself. And that experience was one of the tame ones.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 4:33:46 PM
I feel sympathetic that he has a disturbing mental illness, but I have absolutely NO sympathy for his planning, organization, research, and mass murder he committed. This isn't about him being mentally ill. It's despite mental disease or defect, whether he knew right from wrong, which he did.

@Patty-Sorry but I cant even watch my dog take a dump less watch a man play with his FECES.

@anice are are we at on time on this video?
by LG7/10/2015 4:35:53 PM
Oh. Wow. Lay it all out there.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 4:35:54 PM
The jury's deserve Double Hazard pay after this WHOLE trail...
by LG7/10/2015 4:35:57 PM
I hope it is blurry for all in the court room. You don't need to see that.
by Suzanne7/10/2015 4:36:00 PM
The 40 year old man I bathed was an autistic sevant.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 4:36:03 PM
While he may be sick now, it doesn't prove he was on the day of the shooting!!!
by jbs7/10/2015 4:36:05 PM
This video does not prove psychosis at all. Other things could account for what we are seeing.
by Alison7/10/2015 4:36:06 PM
was this after the shootings?
by Brenda Cash7/10/2015 4:36:09 PM
@anica,,, unfortunately in your profession you see things ya wished ya never had,,, I understand completely , was the same for me in my profession. If you need to talk, you have my contact info in my email to you the other day,
by shuffie7/10/2015 4:36:23 PM
Commend the officers for giving him a blanket..
by Dennie Carp7/10/2015 4:37:31 PM
What point in time is this in relation to the shooting?
by Where's GB?7/10/2015 4:37:35 PM
This video is from Nov. 2012 and was taken at Denver Health. I believe the defense is playing it to show that he was trying to hide under the sheets from the shadows he was seeing.
by anica.padilla7/10/2015 4:38:40 PM
Somebody...abc7, anica, holmes, DT, PT, Judge Samour, the People of Colorado...SOMEBODY...owes me 30 minutes of my life back :)
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 4:38:49 PM
This is the reason that thorazine was invented.
by Keeter7/10/2015 4:38:57 PM
Good Morning - Late today... I'll be about an hour behind everyone - but looks like should prove to be interesting based on all the comments!

@NT8 he's restrained. Being alone with him doesn't seem like it would be a problem. And please enlighten me on how corrections work. They're officers. They're there to make sure he doesn't harm himself or someone else...
by Della (Me)7/10/2015 4:39:11 PM
Wonder if some of the misguided young women who send their pin-ups to Holmes in jail are starting to have second thoughts about now.
by flip7/10/2015 4:39:22 PM
@Wheres...4 month AFTER the shooting
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 4:39:27 PM
Seriously Benda? We didn't arrest him before the shootings.....
by Mark7/10/2015 4:39:39 PM
I think it is 3 months after the shooting.
by Alison7/10/2015 4:39:41 PM
Why do they keep going in and out like this? Why not just stay in if you have to come back in every two seconds?
by Malingering7/10/2015 4:39:42 PM
November 2012...that's what makes me angry, I thought the words were "at the commission of the act"...? Not three months after.
by Kels7/10/2015 4:39:47 PM
Thank you Anica for the video date!
by Trial watcher7/10/2015 4:39:48 PM
@ Mark lol
by Alison7/10/2015 4:41:55 PM
Poor guy was in solitary. Bored to death. Someone shoulda gave the guys some crayons or something. Maybe some marshmallows.
