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.
@prison for jimmy--yes, that's correct. I was actually answering Eleanor, who said he took valium before the shooting.

the only difference is the reaction time
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:40:52 PM
oh. sorry, flip. i thought he took both.
by prison for jimmy8/25/2015 7:41:40 PM
prison for jimmy...I heard in testimony that he did
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:42:18 PM
he wanted to stay alert at the same time

Fpsych just be sure and extend your education into a state that has a stronger higher education system, at some point. The psych dept. at CU is okay, but the medical school has areas that are extremely limited. Even if you don't go to medical school, it would be a good idea to go elsewhere for Phd main thing to check for is how many of the faculty actually stayed at CU, that is a bad sign for any education, when they hire their own because the range of research becomes so limit

I'm sorry that I can't seem to control the number of comments I make. If I am blowing up your screen with too many comments, just turn the comments off.
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:44:48 PM
Who is she related to? I didn't catch it

Hydrocodone is an opiate pain medicine. Valium is a tranquilizer. Totally different meds.
by Frank8/25/2015 7:45:55 PM
Frank when a person knows how to mix meds it works
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:46:55 PM
flip killing another person, who is not killing you, is not a moral compass at all. it is just a sign of an immoral person and an immoral society. fascist ideal, that's the philosophy behind it.
by prism8/25/2015 7:47:35 PM
She's related to Teesh MG, can't you see?
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:47:37 PM
Once again King's got the swing going.
by JW8/25/2015 7:47:43 PM
He took Vicadin for pain before the shooting. That's not either of those meds mentioned.
by Kristle8/25/2015 7:47:57 PM
Wasn't this from yesterday??
by Danielle8/25/2015 7:48:32 PM
okay, believe what you want
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 7:48:41 PM
prism--go on back to your bong, dude.

The shooter's homicidal mania may well have been triggered by the Zoloft prescribed for him by the Student Health psychs. Zoloft is an SSRI antidepressant, known for triggering homicidal in susceptible individuals.
by Frank8/25/2015 7:49:29 PM
"He took Vicadin (sic) for pain before the shooting..." Vicodin is a brand name for hydrocodone.

I should know, I steal them from my mom all the time lol
by Frank8/25/2015 7:52:49 PM
I miss Phil!
by Sarah8/25/2015 7:53:30 PM
Yes, I know he may have stopped taking the Zoloft, since the cops found a bottle with a few tabs left. Still, it may have been the trigger which "opened the floodgates" of homicidal mania.

Her son was 17 when he and a friend bought the Batman tickets. Her son made it out alive but was diagnosed with PTSD. He gave interviews where he was visibly shaken by recalling what happened.
by Kristle8/25/2015 7:54:48 PM
Very happy to see the Mayor take the stand
by Sarah8/25/2015 7:55:06 PM
Even though his jacket doesn't match his pants
by Sarah8/25/2015 7:55:55 PM
@Kristle - did you catch her son's name?
by Sarah8/25/2015 7:55:56 PM
Some fool is stealing my handle and posting under my name. I'm sure anyone who cares can tell the difference.
by Frank8/25/2015 7:56:03 PM
Mine too Frank - they even got my pic on there. ay yi yi
by Sarah8/25/2015 7:56:29 PM
@ Frank - you can tell, its pretty obvious
by emma8/25/2015 7:56:41 PM
Brauchler is such a fantastic DA!
by Sarah8/25/2015 8:00:05 PM
Looks like Nelson is losin' it a bit.
by Kels8/25/2015 8:00:37 PM
I bet he man-scapes too
by Sarah8/25/2015 8:01:21 PM
I love how whenever Geo. Braucler calls jh "that guy" Kings hair stands on end and he looks like a mad fozi bear.
by JW8/25/2015 8:01:52 PM
Some people. That is not me making inappropriate comments.
by SarahCO8/25/2015 8:02:55 PM
we know, sarah :)
by emma8/25/2015 8:03:23 PM
Even though I was actually thinking it
by SarahCO8/25/2015 8:03:31 PM
The mothers name was Tiina Coon. Her sons name is Tanner Coon.....
by Kristle8/25/2015 8:03:49 PM
Thank you Kristle!
by SarahCO8/25/2015 8:04:07 PM
Sure. I had to rewind and it took awhile to get her first words. It's sad her and her daughter suffer from PTSD along with Tanner and they weren't in the theater during the shooting.
by Kristle8/25/2015 8:06:52 PM
and the fact that their name is Coon, of course
by Kristle8/25/2015 8:07:39 PM
She's speaking about that poor little girl that they played on the 911 call. Heartbreaking!
