Movie theater shooting trial day 12: Testimony about evidence found in trash will resume
When testimony begins Wednesday morning in the trial of James Holmes, a former FBI agent will return to the stand to discuss the evidence collected from trash outside the apartment building at 1690 Paris St.
Strange the DT didn't cross about the ticket being Theater #3.

The count so far is 2 1 1 @ 50%

Thank you everyone!!! That is weird!!! He probably went to the theatre to see the layouts of them so he had an idea on how to go out with his plan. Just an assumption.
by Joey5/13/2015 3:40:35 PM
@S33: that's what I'm saying. Yes, INSANE. No question. No, he's not in his right mind at all. Neither was Dzhokhar Tsarnaev or Dylan Klebold or Eric Harris. Obviously. It's just sane to go kill a bunch of people. For whatever reason they did it. That's all I'm saying.
by FMM5/13/2015 3:40:37 PM
So what happens to him if he's found insane?
by NebraskaProCaPunishment5/13/2015 3:40:39 PM
He probably didn't actually go into theater 3.

@NebraskaProCaPunishment: state mental hospital
by Phil Tenser5/13/2015 3:40:48 PM
I really don't think committing murder necessitates that one is insane.
by jj11145/13/2015 3:42:33 PM
I meant "NOT sane" in my previous post.
by FMM5/13/2015 3:42:35 PM
Mental illness is a hard topic, so I want to be sensitive. But if you do crimes to hurt other people I don't want them out in the world. I don't see the need for the death penalty, but life without parole in a security mental institute would make me feel safe. It is just sad when people claim mental illness or insanity and go to a hospital for how many years, then get out. Who will know if they continue any medication.

the apartment has a lot of traps

oh nutz lost feed
by NT85/13/2015 3:44:17 PM
@NebraskaProCaPunishment Is it True Ernie Chambers is your here? LOL!!!
by NT85/13/2015 3:44:19 PM
@FMM: I'm not arguing with you because I fully believe he was insane at the time as well. I don't think he was in his right mind or else things would've been planned better and there probably would've been a lot more damage done.
by S335/13/2015 3:44:23 PM
medicatoin cannot control the outcome of an ill nees
by abbie.luber5/13/2015 3:45:04 PM
Medication can control illness. That's kind of the point of medication.
by jj11145/13/2015 3:46:35 PM
Ernie Chambers is a joke. Just another man trying to be bigger than the state. Leader? No.
by NebraskaProCaPunishment5/13/2015 3:47:25 PM
@ Suzanne If found insane at the time of the crime the Defendant will go to a mental hospital which can release Him any time they choose too.
by Abrandt5/13/2015 3:47:27 PM
Going to take an early morning break
by Phil Tenser5/13/2015 3:48:15 PM
Oh ok, Abrandt cleared that up for me.
by KP5/13/2015 3:51:41 PM
I am not positive, but I think when they are decided insane try are put in a hospital for the rest of their lives.. In cases like this at least.
by KP5/13/2015 3:51:42 PM
yes but it dosent work for everyone
by abbie.luber5/13/2015 3:51:43 PM
@S33 or he could be an attention seeker with this. He is now "Famous" since committing this crime. Just because he was not back then doesn't mean he couldn't want people to know who he was. Or there could be someone that he wanted to notice him (who probably rejected him)
by Joey5/13/2015 3:51:52 PM
@S33: I believe there should have been a lot more damage done. He planned for a lot more, did he not? All of the magazine clips that were full. All of the unspent rounds. I think the only thing that went wrong, if I'm not mistaken, was the one magazine jamming, so he couldn't finish carrying out it plan. That is how it appears to me anyway. I could be wrong.
by FMM5/13/2015 3:51:57 PM
@Tyler, Got any insider info?
by NT85/13/2015 3:53:26 PM
I believe he is seriously mentally ill but I do not support the insanity plea.
by Sue5/13/2015 3:53:55 PM
what is the likklyhood of holmes getting the death penalty
by abbie.luber5/13/2015 3:54:12 PM
@Tyler What has it been like covering this from day one?
by NT85/13/2015 3:56:15 PM
Who drinks diet 7-Up? Yuck.
by Angela Freeman5/13/2015 3:57:32 PM
@Phil I had posted something and it didn't pop up
by Joey5/13/2015 3:57:33 PM
@Joey: lots going on
by Phil Tenser5/13/2015 3:57:39 PM
@Tyler what is your view on this case? What do you think the outcome will be?
by Joey5/13/2015 4:00:16 PM
good news, Tyler is jumping on the set. Got questions for him?
by Phil Tenser5/13/2015 4:00:21 PM
I never see his attorneys speak to him. Why? He isn't participating in his defense, is he?
by Sue5/13/2015 4:00:26 PM
Likelihood of getting death penalty - 95%, likelihood of spending the rest of his life on death row like Nathan Dunlap will - 95%
by NebraskaProCaPunishment5/13/2015 4:00:28 PM
@Joey: Or, ya know, he could have actually been sick but I guess that's just too far fetched for some people. I guess it's easier to say that he wanted the notoriety than it is to believe someone could actually be mentally ill. I don't blame you for that because our mental health system is complete garbage. Hopefully we'll fix that problem one day.
by S335/13/2015 4:00:30 PM
@NebraskaProCaPunishment One of his beloved Mountain Lions got shot by the cops in Omaha, He is going to sue over that I heard. I guess the Unicameral is leaning twds Dropping the Death Penalty. He will never go away either, Term limits don't phase him. I wonder what he has to say about the prison riot in Tecumseh.
by NT85/13/2015 4:00:31 PM
@JJ it depends on the medication and the dosage. Sometimes medications do not work for people. But you can do the same thing with a placebo, it is also in the head.
by Joey5/13/2015 4:00:33 PM
I find the pattern of when JH appears engaged with what's going on in the courtroom interesting. When his belongings are on the screen, documents relating directly to him, etc. Anything about the victims, he's looking down, staring blankly somewhere, spinning in his chair...
by Angela Freeman5/13/2015 4:00:34 PM
@Angela: Agreed! Maybe helps his insanity plea...
by NebraskaProCaPunishment5/13/2015 4:01:34 PM
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.
by jj11145/13/2015 4:02:51 PM
I suspect the defense is going to comment on the fact that JH made no preparations for escape, and try to relate that to "insanity" somehow. I think it's much more likely that he simply knew this was the kind of crime you don't get away with, so prepping for escape was pointless.
by Angela Freeman5/13/2015 4:04:04 PM
@Angela - probably been instructed by his counsel to not look at certain witnesses. It's a common practice in criminal law where there are victims.
by NH5/13/2015 4:04:06 PM
Can you fix Tylers audio? Cut the background noise?
by NT85/13/2015 4:09:48 PM
I think he believed he would get away with it because his apartment was supposed to be blown up. Giving the timing of the loud music and hoping someone would set it to blow up . It would take a day or two to see he wasn't in his apartment.
