James Holmes Claims To Have Amnesia, Insists He Doesn't Remember Why He's In Jail

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

James Holmes amnesia

We're not sure whether James Holmes is actually legally insane or not, but he's trying REALLY hard to convince everyone in jail that he is.

Following his arrest at the scene of the shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado, he's been acting all sorts of strange. He has referred to himself as the Joker, couldn't concentrate in court, spit on guards and most recently, has claimed he doesn't remember a thing! As in, he has no recollection of killing 12 innocent people!

An employee at the Arapahoe County Detention Center told sources:

“He claims he doesn’t know why he’s in jail. He asked, ‘Why am I here?’”

Holmes also has the nerve to complain about the quality of food, as the employee continues:

“He’s claiming his belly hurts him. He complained once that he didn’t like the food … The guy killed 12 people, and he’s upset that he’s not getting a four-star meal?”

While psychology professionals are on the fence about the accused murderer's mental state, people working in the jail aren't buying his act. The source added:

“He needs to save his act for the jury because no one here is buying it. Everyone is convinced he is faking it.”

If Holmes truly doesn't recall why he's there, he's got a lot of time to think about it. Due to the nature of his violent crime and the possibility of other inmates attacking him, the suspect is under 23-hour lockdown.

He may be sick to his stomach, but we know we're genuinely still stick over the crimes he committed.

    I believe this man was setup….mkultra written all over it …this could happen to anybody people need to wake up to whats going on around u….

  2. 2

    I don't know why but I believe everything he says.

    Not feeding proper meals is animal cruelty.

  3. 3

    This guy has been mind controlled to do this by our evil and corrupt govt to pass the anti gun law. WAKE UP!

    hmm.. Is he going to start with a dissociative fugue episode— I guess all those courses in neuroscience are coming handy now

  5. 5

    You are not a journalist, Mario. You are a lazy hack who steals everything he posts. If we want the news on this guy, we'll go to credible sources. Stop posting about this.

    Re: Synnica – Are you an expert on this topic ?

  7. 7

    He looks like Sideshow Bob, not The Joker.

    Re: leggybrandi – so glad people realize this and hopefully we can spread the word and make sure everyone understands what happened and what the purpose of it was.

  9. Amanda says – reply to this


    Re: Synnica – Please tell me HOW could he have been setup? He was the one who walked out of the theatre and walked back in with armour and weapons and decided to start shooting.

  10. 10

    …wow…some real nutjobs here……

  11. Amanda says – reply to this


    Maybe it's time you get rid of all the guns and there might not be so many homicides in America. You don't hear about stuff like this happening in Canada. Guns are the problem.

  12. 12

    Re: leggybrandi – Boy ! Now THAT is the comment of a real moron ! Go back to your room ! Go take your meds !

  13. chris says – reply to this


    this article is very badly written.

  14. 14

    Re: leggybrandi – their are tryin to take guns away cuz something is comin …they wanna make sure ppl are unarmed so that htey wont fight back to whats coming …

  15. 15

    Lock him in a room with some victims family members and no guards. That might jog his memory.

  16. 16

    He is trying to get the temporary insanity treatment is all this is. The gov't sucks but to people that are blaming the gov't for the shooting and turning it into a political situation. Go out, read, and learn. Stop basing your opinions because of someone else's word of mouth

    Everything that is going on with him can definitely be a sign of a severe mental illness, which usually strikes at that age. All you have to do is look at the videos of who he was before and who he is now. There is no sign of him becoming an alienated, angry kid, gun-crazy kid who was acting out before. The signs point strongly to mental illness, because there is a sudden 180-degree change. It's pretty tragic, because the shootings could have been prevented.

  18. 18

    If he claims to be the joker, and with so much alike between him and the Joker, why hasn't anybody put 2 and 2 together to realize this: He's complaining of a stomach ache in jail… What happened to the last guy that complained of a stomach ache in 'The Dark Knight' while in prison? I suggest an x-ray for this guy asap.

  19. 19

    Re: Amanda – when this was first reported wittiness said there was 2 shooters …plus if it was him on the cell who was he talkin too ? and how can someone put armor on that fast ? they reported seein a man runnin out of the exit door and jumpin into a waitin car ? all the while james holmes sat in his car …? why would he tell the cops his apartment had bombs ? seriously does this look like a guy who can think of something like this and act apon it all by himself ??? he says he doesn't know why hes in jail…his stomach hurts ? which i dont think hes bitchin about the quality of the food ? his friend also said james holmes was in some testin lab because he needed money ?but something is off about this story ..plz people look up mk ultra and youtube it this stuff really exists …

    regardless… he still need to go. He's a menace to society.

    Re: Amanda – I kind of agree with you. I don't doubt that there are plenty of gun owning Americans who practise proper gun safety, but frankly I'd be more terrified than proud at how easy it is to get your hands on a gun in the states. In Canada it's actually pretty easy to get a firearm license, and still quite easy to get a handgun license. I have a dual citizenship, I've owned guns in the US and Cananda, the difference is how easy it is to buy the gun itself. In Canada you have to prove why you need it and they restrict the barrel and round capacity. I think the reason why we don't have shootings like that is because there aren't nearly as many gun owners, and we don't have that gun craze/pride.

    Re: Amanda – there are actually just as many guns in Canada

  24. 24

    wheter he is ensane or not he should atleast get life in prison

  25. Andrew says – reply to this


    This couldn't have been a more obvious false flag. It's sad to see so many people falling for this direct attack to the second amendment. Banning guns will only make the crime rates rise. People will still get their hands on guns, except with the ban that's being pushed for, a lot more people who shouldn't own guns will find a way to own a gun or two. Wake up, people.

  26. 26

    Perez your own site said the mouth spitting and mouth guard was said to be a lie. The police department has called it BS. ABC has retracted a few Bullsh*t stories about Mr. Holmes. It seems media outlets like yours are making him "insane" more than he is trying. I had a stomach ache yesterday and ordered bad sushi, I am not nuts.

  27. 27

    another bunch of crap. I say this dude is playing the insane card for all it's worth at this point. He has nothing else. wow, I read the comments here. REALLY???? I think a lot of you are way the hell off.

  28. 28

    Re: Amanda – Canadians own a similar amount of guns as Americans, percentage-wise, but with more restrictions. It's just a different mentality as soon as you cross the border.

  29. Amanda says – reply to this


    Re: g – Yes, we use them for hunting deer or target practice. Not self defence.

  30. Amanda says – reply to this


    Re: Lady Who? – Yes, we use them for hunting and target practice. Not self defence.

  31. 31

    Jail staffers are psychologists now? Jail staffers are allowed to sell information to the media? Don't get me wrong, I condemn what this guy did, but this lynch mob mentality just shows some people are as low as him.

  32. 32

    Re: Judyg73 – No one seems to read what others post. ABC retracted the spitting story after "jail officials" called it "BS". "The Joker" comment was made for investigative reasons before the bombs were diffused and made by police. The "food" stories have also been retracted by etleast on news organization. So, you are reading made up stories.

  33. 33

    Re: Comments off C off – They have been retracted? I just got on and read this here the first time. Thanks for clearing that up!

  34. 34

    Re: Judyg73 – Here is what bugs me Perez's own site says much of this has been retracted and then he reprints it. If Holmes is convicted I do see an appeal in his future for a tainted jury pool.

  35. demode says – reply to this


    Re: KEEFER

    No, just one nutjob pretending to be 3 different people. Synica, pollopicu, and leggybrandi are all the same person. Just a nutjob with a gun agenda. As a retired military officer, I understand the importance of guns. Passing gun laws doesn't mean taking guns away from the people. It means that people will require licences to own them. This bothers some, but ask yourselves… Would you trust a person driving a car without a licence? A gun is not a toy, and people need to be trained about gun saftey before they are sold guns.

    Re: catcadwallader – I thought the same thing, this just doesn't seem right at all

  37. Tyler says – reply to this


    All of you saying "he was controlled to do it" are just plain idiots who should be thrown in a mental hospital them selves! The man did it! Willingly! It was all set up! There was complete proof! The Government IS NOT smart enough to set up this to get guns banned. And much much as I AM NOT for the government they wouldn't do it and kill 12 people and injury 71 more. GEEZ PEOPLE.

    Re: AmandaRe: Amanda – Ok Amanda…. Derka Derka. Gun aren't the problem here. I don't know why people are really thinking about taking our rights away as Americans. Sure, maybe it should be a little harder to purchase one…, buuutt I really don't think a law is going to stop a criminal. Whether he was set up or not, like these people are saying, gun control is not the answer. and I have never heard anything so stupid in my life. Have you look at these countries you are trying to state are "safe" have you ever seen Britain and the amount of violence that has struck them since their government took away their guns?? The amount of robberies and violence has risen since then. If you have someone break in your home and shoot them you are the one going to jail.

  39. Jen says – reply to this


    Re: Amanda – So why is it right to take away something people need in order to feel safe nowadays. It's 2012, the world is changing. We need safety. Why are we going to let something that has occured repeatedly over history, without or with gun control, take away our rights as people??? This is just like when we rebeled from Britain! Do you not see this is happening again? So you're telling me everyone with a gun owners permit is a horrible person, because that's what seems to be made out by you people. Like I said………. A CRIMINAL IS A CRIMINAL. A LAW DOES NOT STOP THEM. IT IS ILLEGAL TO KILL PEOPLE. DO YOU THINK THAT STOPPED HIM????!!!

  40. 40

    Wow some people on this board are fucking idiots. Looking for conspiracies in everything.

  41. Jen says – reply to this


    There are plenty of good hearted people in the world who have a holders license. You shouldn't take the rights away from the people because of ONE man's mistake. Laws don't stop criminals people. Look at the history around you. Look at Britain!! No one is protected. Look at how long the police take to respond!! They only got there in 90 second because their station is located right next to the damn theater if you know anything about Aurora. It sure didn't take the 90 second when me and my sister were jumped by fifteen MEN. It took an hour. It didn't take them 90 seconds when my house was broken into. In fact, they didn't even come! So who's to say they'll be there when the nation takes away our second amendment away??

  42. Jen says – reply to this


    ?? I was raised here and yes, I feel pain because of this, but this doesn't change my mind about guns being legal, in fact it makes me want a holders license to feel more safe. YOU ARE STUPID AND CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA IF YOU BELIEVE THAT TAKING OUR RIGHTS THAT WERE ESTABLISHED BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS AWAY BECAUSE OF ONE ACT OF CRIME AND YOU WILL SEE SEVERAL HUNDREDS MORE IF WE DO NOT HAVE OUR PROTECTION. Trust me, the media is making this whole deal much much harder on us in AURORA than they make you think. You see them care on TV and in their magazines. Well. thats really funny, because they don't care about the loved ones and victims they pushed out of their way to get that story your glued to. The media is making this more painful than it should be. And the country is being a bunch of retards that other people assume we are by letting the government take our rights away.

  43. Jen From AURORA says – reply to this


    And Jen from AURORA and Jen are the same people. What I said was too long and I forgot to put from AURORA when I posted the last few times cause I am not a user one this sight.

  48. jsn says – reply to this


    Re: Synnica – Ur an idiot. He wanted fame and he wanted people to feel sorry for him. So he killed 12 people to get all this attention. Look at all the dumbasses who are giving this sorry excuse for a human being what he wants. May you all rot in hell along with him.

    where am i where am i this isnt bourne identity … what a gype…

    Re: Lucas – very interesting stuff thanks for the information …

  54. 54

    the guy is nuts; whether he is sane or insane

    to conspiracy theorists, if the government wanted to do this could have done a better job. there plenty of better opportunities to convince legislature and the public that gun control is needed. conspiracy theorists need to stop wasting their time. thats 1 reason our country is in the sheeter; people waste their time watching tv, playing video games, eating food, etc, not trying to make themselves better for society, which would make society better. now i do believe that most of our government are morons, waste money, are out of touch with the real issues; we need 50% less government, and it needs to be entirely rebuilt from the bottom up. common sense and basic logicwould make most things in this world better

    That is NOT the real James Holmes. The photos don't even match and they edited the mug shot photo of the guy pretending and probably being paid to be James Holmes. The question is, who is behind this scandal and who is the guy with the red hair? I want to see a valid unfalsified DNA test report. The police need to be looking for the real James Holmes and protect their family from these organized crimes.

    you guys really need to wake up and start expanding your mind. i believe he was drugged and made a patsy. Here is why. search for 2nd gas mas and also the missing little girl no one is talking about, why the standard magazine and not the 100 barrel as described in the media, where is the accomplice, several witnesses said there was TWO !!! look it up. the media is differently covering something up and that's not just some wake conspiracy that is now a proven fact. just because its not on thr 5o clock dont mean it didn't happen … sheeple

    HEY Synnica!!! This goes for you and the other idiot conspiracy theorists I see on every fuckin website about this guy.

    Your ALLLL idiots, listen even if the government or whoever "they" are tried to get rid of the guns or even make it harder then it already is to get them its impossible! You can get them on craigslist in 1 day. I almost got a cheap 9mm last week for 100 bucks you moron.

    Type this into Google you idiot: "How many guns are in the united states"

    "there are over 200 million privately-owned firearms in the US not including the military, law enforcement agencies and museums. If you add those in there is about 1 gun per person in the country."

    "If you want to get a rough idea of how many guns there are out there just look at how many people you see out there then multiply by a factor of estimated ownership. The last best guess was about 350,000,000 Total. That would be 1 weapon for every man woman and child. The average gun enthusiast owns several firearms which includes pistols, shotguns, and rifles of all makes and models. It is often estimated that about 1 in 4 people own any firearms and on average firearms owners own 4 guns each.

  62. Reginal Denny says – reply to this



    Even if somehow they made it so no one could own a gun there would still be people selling them to anyone because a black market would be created. Another reason for it is cause America makes most of its money selling weapons thats one of our biggest businesses we are about guns, no agency is EVER going to make it so the goverment makes less weapons. If the government ever wanted to save lives why wouldn't they ever ban smoking? In the USA alone it kills 400,000 people a yr, the government makes too much money off it and huge amount of smokers/people will complain just like with guns, too many people will complain and tons of money is being made from it. This guy was a loner/fucking loser who had nothing else going for him, no girl friend, no friends, his whole life is dedicated to science and he even fails at that, some people just decide to fuck shit up because they are fucking losers. IT WAS JUST THIS GUY NOT SOME CONSPIRACY. LOOK AT COLUMBINE, THE SHIEK TEMPLE SHOOTING FROM LAST WEEK IN WISCONSIN, THE SHOOTING IN FT HOOD, THIS SHIT JUST HAPPENS EVERY ONCE AND AWHILE CAUSE THERE ARE 310,000,000 people in the united states this is going to happen once and awhile. I DONT KNOW HOW TO PUT THIS GENTLY BUT CHRIST YOUR DUMB!
