    Tough love. Sorry if you didn't like the answer, but I was trying to be honest. Anyway, you should keep going to premieres. Think of all the theaters in America and all the premieres and this has only happened once. There's no gaurantee this will happen again, but even if it did the chances of this happening to YOU are about as likely as you winning the lottery twice. Don't live your life in fear. Or at least fear more rational things, like cancer and car wrecks.

    Just saw this question...


    For each murder he is charged with one count of murder with deliberation and one count of murder with extreme difference, both are first degree murder charges therefore 2 charges per count equals 24....this is the prosecution wanting to give the jurors choices, but choices that lead to first degree murder.

    It is the same with the 58 people wounded, there are 116 for those...again choices for the jurors.

    I maintain that he is perfectly sane. But then, my personally opinion.

    He's sane. He just doesn't want the death penalty and to sit in a regular prison.

    Even if he gets the death penalty,
    He might not die for fifteen years the appeal process being the way that is in this country.

    I'm personally against the death penalty, but I certainly wouldn't have shed any tears if we gave it to Holmes. Although I feel like it does set a precedent...if he can't get the death penalty even after all he did, who can?

    No one! No one deserves the ****ing death penalty! It is completely wrong to take away someones life no matter what they have done. Life in prison is worse than the death penalty anyway.

    This is why the death penalty is such a touchy subject.

    I frankly am on the fence about it because while I don't think responding to murder with more murder, is morally right.

    BUT at the same time I will confess...if it was MY loved one who was brutally murdered/gunned down by one of these maniacs...my tune would probably change very quickly.

    I don't blame victims who want their loved ones killer sentenced to death.

    I don't blame them at all.

    It's a tricky tightrope to walk, and it's easy to sit back and say "an eye for an eye is wrong"...until it happens to you.

    If it was YOUR mother, brother, wife, or child gunned down by this monster, you could seriously say you wouldn't want the b****** drawn and quartered?

    I'm with you and am not arguing in favor of the death penalty at all, I'm just saying that I wonder if this will change anything. James Holmes acted as monstrous as I think any person possibly could in a such a short time frame, unless that person had access to a military or a ****ing atom bomb.

    If he wasn't put to death by a court of law, I don't see how anyone else could get that sentence.

    You need 12 people to agree to the death penalty .
    That is a tough thing to accomplish.
