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.
