UPDATE 2: Over thirty “improvised grenades” and specialized chemicals designed to explode when mixed were allegedly found in Holmes’ apartment by authorities. The cops are now mad because, as they say, the traps looked to be designed to kill “first responders”. Of course, Holmes supposedly told them about the traps before anyone went to his apartment, but the cops are still “mad as hell” anyway.
“It was an extremely dangerous environment,” Oates said. “If a neighbor or an unassuming pedestrian would’ve walked in that door, or God forbid a first responder, they would’ve sustained significant injuries and/or lost their life.”
“It was going to be a police officer,” Oates continued. “We sure as hell are angry.” Huffington Post
God forbid a “first responder” gets hurt like those first responders who are hit by secondary hell-fire missiles whenever we call up a drone strike in Pakistan or Afghanistan or Yemen….
According to officials, it’s “going to take a while” to search his place for evidence.
Why would a guy set up all those traps just to tell the cops they are there and why would he make all those “improvised grenades” and not use any of them?
There are some rather strange aspects to the Dark Knight shooting incident being called the Aurora Massacre, which has claimed the lives of 12 people in Aurora Colorado. You have to be careful not to go out and immediately suspect that every incident like this one is a staged false flag event so I’ve been waiting to see how the story has been taking shape. I don’t know if this tragedy is simply an example of how someone just snapped or if it was staged for various reasons. But the truth is, there are some odd aspects to this story and some parts that have been misinterpreted by various investigative writers. This guy drops out of school and starts buying weapons and professional grade tactical gear and shoots up a theater all in one month’s time? His home is off-limits due to booby-traps that he warned the police of for some reason? His gear completely covered his head and face during the attack, then he strips them off in the parking lot before “meekly’ surrendering to the police? And of course all of this takes place just days before a controversial ratification vote in the senate.
Yeah, this harkens back to false flag events in our past which always seem to take place just before some kind of legislation like the Patriot Act. But is it?
First, the witness who is being widely cited as saying “someone let the shooter into the theater” didn’t actually say that. What he said was he saw someone in the right front row get a phone call and get up and go to the exit door where he propped it open and then he noticed someone dressed in black with a mask on come in that door and started shooting people.
“As I was sitting down to get my seat, I noticed that a person came up to the front row, the front right, sat down, and as credits were going, it looked like he got a phone call. He went out toward the emergency exit doorway, which I thought was unusual to take a phone call. And it seemed like he probably pried it open, or probably did not let it latch all the way. As soon as the movie started, somebody came in, all black, gas mask, armor, and threw a gas can into the audience, and it went off, and then there were gunshots that took place.” from CNN video
Notice, the witness doesn’t say the guy came back and sat down and another guy came in. What he seems to be saying is the guy went out, propped the door open, and came back. Same guy. And that makes sense. How else was he going to get into the theater wearing all that gear and carrying large weapons? Could be that he bought the ticket, went in and sat down, pretended to get a phone call which would explain his getting up and going to the door.
When he came back in, if that was the same guy, he was wearing a gas mask and so much tactical equipment the victims never saw the face or the hair or even the color of the skin of the man shooting at them. He supposedly tossed two gas canisters into the theater prior to opening fire on the audience. That’s a pretty sophisticated close quarters combat technique for someone with no military training.
He was decked out in what sounds like full body armor, neck, groin, thigh protection, tactical gloves as well as a Kevlar vest, a ballistic helmet, and the gas mask. This is pretty high-tech stuff for a college student going after unarmed kids in a movie theater.
“Authorities say Holmes arrived at the theater dressed in black, outfitted in a gas mask, ballistic helmet, vest and leggings, black tactical gloves and protectors on his throat and groin. He was armed with an assault-style rifle, a shotgun and Glock handgun.” Newsday
Interestingly, he supposedly shed most of the armor in the parking lot before being arrested.
And speaking of his arrest, we have also been told that the assailant surrendered “meekly” to the cops outside in the parking lot.
The suspected assailant, James Holmes, has no real internet footprint that anyone has been able to locate, with the possible exception of an Adult Friend Finders account page. I think that is kind of odd for someone of his age who is obviously pretty intelligent. A young bright college student with no Facebook or Twitter account?
Holmes was considered the “top of the top” by the chancellor of his former school. He was enrolled in a Ph.D. program in neuroscience and suddenly last month, he just drops out and starts buying guns out of the blue.
“Holmes had enrolled last year in a neuroscience Ph.D. program at the University of Colorado-Denver, though he left last month for unknown reasons. In academic achievement, “he was at the top of the top,” recalled Timothy P. White, chancellor at the University of California, Riverside, where Holmes earned his undergraduate degree before attending the Denver school.” AP
Another strange aspect to all of this is the fact that supposedly Holmes went through the trouble to set all of these booby-traps in his apartment obviously to kill more people after his rampage, but for some unknown reason, he warned the police before they went there to collect evidence against him after the rampage. Why would he do that? Doesn’t it seem a bit contrived as if someone wanted to keep the press and various other agencies out of his apartment for a while after the shooting?
“When he surrendered meekly in the movie house parking lot, Holmes told authorities what he’d done at his residence in the Denver suburb of Aurora, the third most populous city in Colorado”
And speaking of contrived, it just so happens that next week President Obama is set to sign the UN Global Arms Transfer Treaty which would then have to be ratified by a vote of two thirds of the senate. The treaty will supposedly set up a system of global gun registration, provide for the collection of “unregistered weapons”, and make the person to person sales of semi-automatic weapons illegal.
On their “small arms” page, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs has this to say about the proliferation and danger posed by small arms
“Insurgents, armed gang members, pirates, terrorists – they can all multiply their force through the use of unlawfully acquired firepower. The illicit circulation of small arms, light weapons and their ammunition destabilizes communities, and impacts security and development in all regions of the world.
The illicit trade in small arms, light weapons and ammunition wreaks havoc everywhere. Mobs terrorizing a neighbourhood. Rebels attacking civilians or peacekeepers. Drug lords randomly killing law enforcers or anyone else interfering with their illegal businesses. Bandits hijacking humanitarian aid convoys. In all continents, uncontrolled small arms form a persisting problem.” UNODA small arms page
Throughout the internet, especially on “progressive” type sites, they are calling for action to be taken to control weapons in the hands of US citizens. Anyone who takes exception to this hysteria is immediately denounced as being on the payroll of the gun lobby.
Don’t you think it’s kind of odd that right before an important senate vote on ratifying this treaty, we just HAPPEN to have this young guy go crazy and start shooting up a theater? Bush and Clinton both supported similar legislation in the past, but opposition to the treaty was widespread and enthusiastic so it never got off the ground.
Now the “pragmatic” Obama is poised to sign the treaty in the wake of this horrendous shooting. Seems kind of contrived to me.
This guy went out and purchased all of these weapons and the protective gear in the last month (I think he bought one gun in late May, his first Glock pistol). He bought the ammo and the protective gear online within the last 20 days or so. Don’t you think that might have set off some red flags somewhere?
I’m not saying that this legislation is definitely going to set up some kind of international goon squad to come rushing into your neighborhood and start confiscating your guns, but it is certainly a first step and when you consider the fact that the specifics of the treaty are still being kept under wraps, you have a hard time not worrying about it.
In the end, I am not utterly convinced that this event was a staged false flag event but you have to admit, there are some really odd circumstances surrounding it. When you consider events of the past like the Oklahoma City bombing and the anthrax attacks, and you remember that both of them preceded the passage of controversial legislation, you can’t help but wonder if the timing of this is just too convenient for the powers that be.
Is it possible that this kid was drugged and put in position to be the patsy for a false flag attack like Robert Bales and the Kandahar Massacre? Was it even him in the theater?
Here’s a question: since almost every movie theater understands by this time that people will buy a ticket and then go open the fire exit door so their friends can get in, why didn’t the opening of the door and propping it open for a time alert the managers at the theater? And don’t theaters like these have video surveillance in the parking lots? Where are the videos of Holmes coming out of the fire exit door and changing and going back in?
More information will be coming out in the next few days and I will try to keep you posted as best I can.
UPDATE: H/T Kenny’s Sideshow for this video which shows various agencies ran a drill in Aurora recently and several people from the director of Homeland Security and Obama warning us that we have to on the lookout for a lone-gunman type attack. Let’s not forget the Adam Gahdan or the Jewish Taliban phony telling “terrorists” to go out and buy guns…
