Not surprisingly, the lawyers representing Dark Knight Rises gunman James Holmes announced in court Thursday that they believe James to be mentally ill, and need more time to assess his condition before entering a plea.
Most likely, Holmes' representatives WILL plea insanity.
Holmes is being charged with 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, after 'allegedly' opening fire on movie patrons at an Aurora, CO movie theater killing 12 and wounding dozens.

Ugh! Not another incident like this!
We are deeply saddened to hear that a gunman in Oak Creek, Wisconsin open fired in a Sikh temple on Sunday. Before being shot by police officers arriving on the scene, the unidentified 40-year-old white male killed six people and injured three with no apparent motive.
Both authorities and the victims are stunned by the "domestic terrorist-type incident." A member of the congregation told sources:

Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Christopher Nolan have already released statements regarding the Colorado shooting during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, but now another star has too.
Although Joseph Gordon-Levitt fell silent on Twitter following the tragedy, he finally spoke up on Monday to give the victims his condolences. The actor, who plays a Gotham City cop in the film, tweeted:

Patricia Legarreta and Jamie Rohrs were two of the people who went to the midnight showing of Dark Knight Rises, where gunman James Holmes open fired.
They brought their 4-month-old son and 4-year-old daughter to the showing and had originally planned on sitting in the front of the theater. In a last minute decision, they opted for seats in the back of theater and ALL survived the shooting.
Watch the interview with the couple (above) to hear their account of the event.
The couple and their children are extremely fortunate to have survived the senseless mass shooting…we cannot even BEGIN to imagine how utterly terrifying that must've been.
Horrible to think what was simply meant to be a trip to the movies resulted in such a horrific, devastating tragedy.

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!
