Flash Flood Watch issued July 24 at 11:34AM MDT expiring July 26 at 12:00AM MDT in effect for: Archuleta, Delta, Dolores, Eagle, Garfield, Gunnison, Hinsdale, La Plata, Mesa, Moffat, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt, San Juan, San Miguel
James Holmes will learn his punishment for 141 other crimes tied to this case in a hearing that begins Monday; these crimes include the charges for explosives planted in his apartment.Victims, families and the gunman will have another chance to address the court, similar to the other sentencing phase. The key difference is that there will be no jury in this hearing and the sentencing decisions will all be made by the judge.
"Don't let evil take away your faith in God--because that's what it wants to do." Very powerful thought.

Hi all. Been gone a long time, watched without joining chat the last month or so. Is it me or is JH smirking? Wtf?

She just called him on his actions when he thinks someone (jury or judge) can't see!

Veronica Moser was not allowed to say anything about her unborn baby being taken from her, or about her final words to her 6 year old daughter, or the fact that she is in a wheelchair the rest of her life. I personally don't think the system works very well. these families are basically pissed off about this verdict and I don't blame them.

Withholding charity? Is this breaking news?

My heart is aching today.

It's strange. I don't want to compare this to other mass shootings, but this one was unique in that the perpetrator didn't kill himself, or commit "suicide by cop". I don't know if it's worse than he kept himself alive. Probably.
by Eric S.8/24/2015 5:44:41 PM
I cannot believe there are actually people out there right now who are claiming that he isn't the shooter and/or that there was a great conspiracy behind this backed by the government. Are people really buying into this stuff?
Regarding the charity question below. This same woman (Anita Bush) is featured in this article.
by Eric S.8/24/2015 5:45:55 PM
Again, my question is where's Tamera Brady?
by Nadine8/24/2015 5:47:21 PM
RIP Alex Teves
by Eric S.8/24/2015 5:47:44 PM
@Suzi, I LOVED that.
by Kels8/24/2015 5:47:45 PM
@Nadine- she might be out of camera view in the gallery.
by CPK8/24/2015 5:47:54 PM
@ Eric, yes, I think it is worse that he kept himself alive--and, to me, it is another nail in the coffin of his sanity--He is a master manipulator and has pulled a fast one. Unfortunately, for him, I don't think any of his future roomies are going to care about his "fragile mental health".
by Suzi Lewis8/24/2015 5:49:55 PM
"Again, my question is where's Tamara Brady?" Ms Brady is a death penalty specialist. Her job is done. She defeated Mr Brauchler's efforts to kill her client.
by Frank8/24/2015 5:50:43 PM
@Suzi I don't think he will be in open population. Although, Loughner is now.. although it wasn't reported in the news. I don't think JH will ever be anything but PC.
by Eric S.8/24/2015 5:51:01 PM
Aww--but one can always hope, eh, Eric?
by Suzi Lewis8/24/2015 5:51:43 PM
Unfortunately no stopped her client from killing 12, hurting 73 others or his attempt on 300 others.
by Marsha Laurienti8/24/2015 5:51:58 PM
@nadine lay off. no one answered your question the first several times because we're trying to ignore the negativity.

@7 or Phil - Is there still somewhere donations are accepted for the survivors and families?

This man speaks very well about his son

It seems that the Aurora Victims Fund controversy is caught up in Colorado gubernatorial politics. Gov Hickenlooper set up the fund. Mr Brauchler is his arch enemy, and would be electoral opponent.

Oh, wow. Dying from a broken heart? Oh dear...teeearrrssss...
by Kels8/24/2015 5:58:18 PM
He really must be a heartless monster, I have been crying all morning. He doesn't have no tissue, no hanky, no expression of any type of empathy. No soul. He kinda looks satisfied. Sickening.
by mama d8/24/2015 5:59:09 PM
@Frank- electoral opponent in what? This is Hick's last term as he is term limited.

I can't stand the fact it almost appears JH is smiling at some points. Disgusting!
by Sarah8/24/2015 6:01:58 PM
Tom Teves described the attack, well, in a nutshell. JH is a loser.
by Eric S.8/24/2015 6:02:38 PM
Bravo Mr. Teves! Bravo.
by kindlezee8/24/2015 6:04:47 PM
OH MAN he is doing it. I know Mr. Teves would tear this up. Excellent.

Tom and Caren Teves are just...the best.

"@Frank- electoral opponent in what? This is Hick's last term as he is term limited."
Brauchler campaigned for Hick's Republican opponent in the last election, as a one-issue (death penalty) candidate. I didn't know this term would be his last.

I love the Teves family. They are amazing, and Alex seemed like a great man.
by Tami8/24/2015 6:06:23 PM
Can that not be investigated and some sanction not be imposed?
by Tammy Garrison8/24/2015 6:07:15 PM
This is so right on.
by Nadine8/24/2015 6:07:44 PM
the PT don't want no part of that, all eyes are AVERTED. Fun-nee!

I went to middle school with Alex. He would've loved this. Go Dad.
