James Holmes' Mother Stands Behind Son

Filed under: Sad Sad

james-holmes-mother-arlene-statement.jpg

We can't even begin to imagine the weight pressing down on Arlene Holmes - the mother of 'suspected' Dark Knight Rises mass-murderer James Holmes - concerning her son's horrific actions…

In Friday's initial reports, Arlene supposedly responded to an ABC News reporter by stating:

"You have the right person… I need to call the police. I need to fly out to Colorado."

However, according to a statement issued today by Holmes' family, her words were taken out of context, and she never confirmed she knew her son to be a killer.

The statement alleges that Arlene was awakened by a phonecall in which a reporter asked if she was Arlene Holmes and if her son was James Holmes. She responded with "Yes, you have the right person."

According San Diego attorney Lisa J. Damiani, who issued Arlene's statement to the press, the family stands behind their son.

Just… unimaginably disturbing!

The 24-year old suspected gunman of last night's fatal movie-theater shooting has been identified as former University of Colorado, Denver PhD student James Holmes.

James reportedly moved from San Diego to Colorado to pursue a PhD in neuroscience in 2011, but was in the process of withdrawing from the program.

James gave himself up to officials outside of the crime-scene and is currently in police custody.

So much love for all those involved in this unimaginably harrowing experience!

Filed under: Film FlickersSad Sad

This is just horrific.

According to the latest reports, 12 people were killed and dozens more injured in a shooting at an Aurora, Colorado movie theatre last night.

The suspect supposedly entered the theatre which was showing the newly released Dark Knight Rises film, ejected some type of tear gas and then proceeded to open fire on the audience.

The alleged shooter has now been identified as 24 year old James Holmes, and it is believed he acted alone.

Holmes is currently in police custody, and reportedly, his only previous interaction with the law was a 2011 traffic ticket.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in this disturbing ordeal.
