Sick, sick, sick! We're just so sick over this whole thing!
As you probably know by now, 71 people were horrifically victimized early Friday morning at the Aurora, CO Century 16 movie theater, when James Holmes opened fire on movie goers who had stayed up late to catch the midnight screening of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
It has now come to light that with 12 fatalities and 59 injuries, this disgusting, senseless incident has gone down in history as the most extensive mass-shooting EVER in the United States.
While many details have emerged as to the who, what, when and where, the how and why are still very much unknown, especially since James supposedly entered the movie theatre through exit doors, which are generally locked from the outside.
Well, according to new reports, the gunman actually BOUGHT a ticket to the premiere and sat in the theater for a good 15 minutes before leaving through the designated exits to the back parking lot.
Upon exiting, James allegedly propped the door open, went to his car, parked it right by the door, grabbed his various weapons and re-entered to cause his destruction.
Obviously, this was a pre-meditated, thought-out plan coming from an obviously deeply disturbed, psychotic individual.
Now, in response to this harrowing crime, AMC theaters nationwide are amping up security, and have banned costumes/props that could potentially make movie-goers uncomfortable.
We're glad that theaters are taking this deadly incident seriously, although HOPEFULLY this is an isolated occurrence…
A movie theater. It's something that exits purely for entertainment, to bring people together under a joyous, common experience.
Who would have thought someone could desecrate such an innocent past time?
