The Dark Knight Rises mass-murder orchestrated by former neuroscience student James Holmes has gone down as the most excessive shooting in recent American History.
After such a disturbing and tragic incident, anxiety across the nation is at a peak, and ANYTHING that could lead to residual violence is being taken VERY seriously.
Yesterday, two 'suspicious' parcels elicited a bomb scare at the University of Colorado Anschutz medical school, instigating hysteria and immediate police action. The campus was evacuated, and haz-mat experts, along with a specialized bomb-disarming robot, inspected the packages - one slipped under a professor's door, the other in the school's mail system. Thankfully, it was discovered that both packages were harmless.
Neither package is believed to be connected to Holmes, who was in the process of withdrawing from the school at the time he chose to open-fire on a packed movie-theater, killing 12 and wounding 59.
Now, Torrence Brown, an unharmed eye-witness who watched his best friend get fatally shot in the chest by Holmes, is seeking compensation for the extreme trauma he suffered early Friday morning.
Torrence has quickly gotten legal aide and is targeting the Aurora, CO Century 16 Movie Theater where the shootings occurred, claiming it was negligent for not having more secure exit-doors.
He is also suing Homes' doctors, as Holmes was allegedly on a cocktail of prescribed drugs during his rampage.
Lastly, Torrence is turning his sue-happy gaze on to Warner Bros. because of the excessive, violent nature of The Dark Knight Rises, which his lawyer is claiming fooled the audience into thinking Holmes was simply part of the show.
We're sorry, but how can Torrence believe that by suing all three of the aforementioned parties, it will somehow rectify, or prevent happenings of this nature…
There is one man and ONE man only who deserves blame here, and his name is James Holmes.
