Why did this happen!?
The Colorado town hasn't even had a year to heal from the horrific Dark Knight Massacre when a hostage situation presented itself inside an Aurora townhouse.
Around 3am on Saturday morning, gunshots were heard inside the townhome, resulting in a SWAT team arriving on the scene. With 40 officers reportedly outside, the gunman refused to surrender to the police.
Police believed there were at least three or four others inside that couldn't leave on their own free will, and — after HOURS of suspense — around 8:15am, the suspect shot

On May 5, 2014, all seven lawsuits filed against Cinemark for their alleged lack of proper security will go before U.S. District Judge R. Brook Jackson.
Aurora Century 16 was the site of James Holmes' brutal shooting spree during its infamous midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Twelve died after James Holmes entered the theater from a back emergency-exit door, and 58 were left wounded.
The massacre, which shocked the nation and brought the issue of gun-control back to the water-cooler, angered many and arguably could have been prevented had proper security been in place, claims the lawsuits.
We can only hope for peace for the families and friends of the victims, and the fortunate ones who did make it out alive that night. Hopefully the judge will help see to it.

There are plenty of opportunities between the time an awful joke pops into your head and when you send it, to, well, not send it. Like when you take out your phone, when you open twitter, when you word it all out, when you read it over and then hit send, for instance.
The Denver Broncos' Tony Carter had all those opportunities but decided to ignore them, when he tweeted:

We can't believe it's already been two months since the chilling massacre that wreaked havoc on Aurora, Colorado and the nation.
58 were wounded and 12 were killed during the shooting spree that took place in a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
And on Friday, three of the surviving 58 sued Cinemark USA for failing to provide proper security in the movie theater.
According to them:

It's hard to blame anybody but James Holmes for the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado last month, but one of the victim's mothers believes the Century 16 movie theater should share some of it.
Shirley Wygal lost her 32-year-old daughter, Rebecca Wingo, in the massacre and has hired Jose Baez to prove the theater's culpability.
If that attorney's name sounds familiar it's because it is. He's the guy who defended Casey Anthony so well that she was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter.
Wygal explained her decision to pursue legal action against the Century 16 by saying:

This was such a good idea!
In an effort to counter the negativity of James Holmes' awful actions inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater on July 20, a charity called Take Back The Movies handed out 1,300 FREE tickets to five different theaters in the Greater Denver area on Saturday.
Over 60 volunteers showed up to take part in the inspiring act of goodwill which organizers hoped would "spread a little light" in response to the darkness that Holmes' act of terror cast over the entire nation.
Read more about the wonderful event in the words of the organizer … AFTER THE JUMP!
