This is an excellent interview with George Brauchler that reveals a lot of new info:


Coffee With George Brauchler: Theater shooting case DA sits back

Carol McKinley, CU News Corps Adviser
August 22, 2015


...CU – For 65 days, he didn’t cry.  He didn’t express any emotion except to stare straight ahead despite the showing of the autopsy photos and gut-wrenching testimony from victims and first responders…

Brauchler – We saw the “game-face” too. This guy was different outside the presence of the jury and when the cameras were off. He’d laugh. He’d chuckle. He’d turn to his council and they’d have short conversations. But man when the jury was coming in, this guy would put on his game face, and that’s what America saw.

CU – And you’ve  been talking to some of the jurors since the final decision. Did they get that? That’s all they saw too. Did they understand what was going on when they weren’t in the courtroom?

Brauchler – Some of them speculated that that might have been the case. One juror said he noticed that the defendant stared straight ahead. Although they did notice that when things were on the screen that were him, or his handiwork at the apartment, they all mentioned the fact that he was glued to the screen for that.

Some jurors also said that it creeped them out that one of the defense attorneys would sit there and just stare at them and then openly wept for anything to do with the defendant; but, didn’t shed a single tear during the compelling victim stuff.  They thought that that was not just weird, but they were put off with it.

State prosecutor alluded to the possibility of JH being transferred to another state (CA) for housing making it easier for JH's family to visit him.

I originally disregarded the comments made by the state prosecutor.
I reasoned, IF they wanted to visit, why haven't they?
They had the financial means to travel and be housed during the trial.


State prosecutor had stated Colorado would have no promise that JH would receive counseling for being mentally ill.


I just read a story that makes these two statements merge.
I am sharing the link and parts of the story.
Apparently, CA IS offering some type of counseling for mentally ill....

San Bernardino County jail to treat mentally ill inmates statewide

"....The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a $10.8 million contract with the state to expand a treatment program for mentally ill inmates at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga to include inmates from other counties across California.

Under its contract with the Department of State Hospitals, West Valley’s Jail Based Competency Treatment Program, tailored to restore mental competency to inmates so they can stand trial for the crimes in which they are accused, would expand from 20 to 96 beds and allow mentally ill inmates from Los Angeles County and other California counties that do not offer such a program to receive treatment.

Mentally ill inmates from other counties receiving treatment at West Valley would be housed at the Rancho Cucamonga jail throughout the duration of their treatment, but preference will be given to inmates in San Bernardino County’s jail system, said Terry Fillman, health services administrator for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The average time it takes to treat an inmate and get them to the point where they are mentally competent to stand trial is about 57 days, Fillman said.

At any given time, there are roughly 50 inmates in San Bernardino County’s jail system who have been declared by a judge to be mentally incompetent to stand trial and referred to a state hospital or program for treatment. And in Los Angeles County, that inmate average is double, Fillman said.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said there are about 100 inmates, charged with various felonies, who have been declared mentally incompetent to stand trial by a judge and are expected to be transferred to the West Valley Detention Center, if clinically appropriate.

“The inmates selected will be those who are not in need of acute hospitalization but rather high functioning,
” Nishida said in an email. “More complex and unstable inmates will continue to be treated in the state hospital setting.”...."

Leaving aside my emotions and looking ONLY at the evidence these pictures document and I am left with many, many questions. (One main question: Why shoot out the passenger side window IF JH was standing outside the driver's door and was compliant with all requests made of him? )

Thanks for posting those, Freckles.  Chilling pictures!

That's a great question!  I was going to say maybe they shot out the windows because they didn't want to open the doors in case the car was rigged with a bomb.  But I just checked, and when they apprehended him, his driver's side door was already open.  (Source:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/9786533/Colorado-cinema-shooting-suspect-James-Holmes-smiled-and-smirked-after-shooting.html)  I can't think of any reason why they would have needed to do that.

The evidence markers show the trajectory of the fire rounds into the seats, walls, etc..
Maybe, with that many misses, his aim was not all it was made out to be?

Notice the lines of trajectory.
The lines are all over the map.
There is no conformity to the angle or ht from the shooter.
Makes me believe there WAS more than one shooter as several witnesses stated in statements to police.

No explanations given for the assorted lines of trajectory.

Which picture(s) are you referring to?  They look relatively aligned to me, except in this photo:  



In this photo, the bottom of the seats are at different angles.  And since there are no people in the photo, we don't know what position the seats were in when the shots were fired.  Someone could have been getting up and their seat was moving, causing the angle of entry to change.  If the left seat bottom was lowered to the same angle as the middle seat bottom, I think they'd be more aligned.

There are several reasons presented in testimony that would explain them not all being aligned:

- he admitted he was a terrible shot (even at the gun range)
- he had multiple weapons, each, I assume, weighing different weights, which could alter how they were being held, thereby changing the angle
- these were not fully automatic weapons, requiring pulling the trigger for each shot; that could cause the angle to change as each trigger pull was made
- each trigger pull required pounds of pressure; I would imagine his arms got tired and he wouldn't have held the gun exactly at the same height/angle for each shot
- he was moving around the front of the theater

All of those things, in my opinion, could attribute to inconsistent trajectories.

That is exactly what I was referring to.

I wish the State had placed witnesses on the stand who had told the LE they had seen two or more shooters... It would have cleared up a lot.

Freckles, I have to wonder about that was well. I was comparing the angles of shots to respective angles that JH would have fired from, and I agree the angles look improbable.

For those on this board, i am not saying the incident did not occur just that reasonable doubt exists. I believe there is more to this story.

Had I been on the jury i would like to have had more information on the shooting angles, explanations for why the angles don't match, etc. IIRC, the place was sold out, that does not explain some of the angles? Ricochets? Light Loads, or under powered gun powder loads? Lousy shot?

I am not giving JH a free pass, just more questions than answers for me.

Meyer: The James Holmes "Joker" rumor

By Jeremy Meyer  The Denver Post
Posted:   09/19/2015 05:00:00 PM MDT


James Holmes was never "the Joker."

He never told witnesses or arresting officers he was the evil and charismatic villain from the Batman comic strip and movies.

Yet, this bad rumor born from initial press reports after the July 20, 2012, shooting in an Aurora theater is repeated by national media almost every time Holmes resurfaces in the news.

..."It is not true," said George Brauchler, the 18th Judicial District attorney, who prosecuted the case.

...Investigators heard no witness talking about the Joker, he said. And no police officer claimed Holmes called himself the Joker.

..."If it had been 'The Avengers,' he would have been there," he said. "If it were 'Jurassic World,' he would have been there. It had nothing to do that we can find with Batman."

Theater shooter James Holmes assaulted in prison

"....Mark Daniels, 27, will be charged with assaulting Holmes and a correctional officer. The incident happened earlier this month in a hallway as Holmes and Daniels were being moved in the prison where they're both housed.

Daniels lunged at Holmes and took a couple swings at him, but Holmes was not hurt. The correctional officer was not hurt either..."

(Happened October 8, 2015. IMO, from what I am reading, I have to wonder if it was more of an attempt than an actual assault. )

I hope it at least scared the cr#p out of JH. He's getting a little taste of what it feels like to be someone else's prey. Sooner or later, I think someone will get to JH.

Colorado theater shooter ordered to pay $955K in restitution

Associated Press By KRISTEN WYATT
21 hours ago


DENVER (AP) — A judge Friday ordered Colorado theater shooter James Holmes to pay about $955,000 in restitution to the victims of his 2012 movie theater shooting — money the imprisoned mass killer likely will never pay.

..."Nothing can ever make the victims whole for the harms suffered at the hands of the defendant," Samour wrote in his order. He added Holmes is under a moral and legal obligation to make full restitution to his victims.

Still, the former graduate student has no income and no assets to speak of, so it's unlikely the victims will receive their money.

...The judgment ordered $851,000 of the restitution to be sent to the state victim compensation fund, and another $103,000 to be paid directly to the victims.

I was reading the tweets from UNSC (United Nations Security Council) last night.
The USA Has agreed to GIVE the country of Jordan $1.5 BILLION dollars for next year.
Maybe you can understand why we are TRILLIONS of dollars in debt....and living in the economic dires many of us face.

Perhaps, the USA would be willing to give 1/2 million (only $500,000) to each of the victims' families since it is apparent JH will never be able to pay off this debt. And the measly offering of $103,000 is insufficient to have even covered the funerals of the victims. (If the president gave up just one of his many global treks, we should see about $100,000,000.00 dollars savings that could be put to a better use....)

Colorado movie gunman Holmes moved to specialised prison
Reuters
By Keith Coffman
December 14, 2015 6:00 PM

~snipped~
DENVER (Reuters) - Colorado cinema massacre gunman James Holmes was moved on Monday to a prison that specializes in holding convicts with mental-health conditions, and which will allow him to have more contact with other inmates, a prisons spokeswoman said.

Holmes was moved from a transitional lockup to the San Carlos Correctional Facility in Pueblo one day after his 28th birthday, said Adrienne Jacobson, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Corrections.

"He is now in more of a general population setting," Jacobson said. "It's a normal progression move."

The prison, about 100 miles (160 km) south of Denver, houses about 250 inmates, but not all the convicts have mental-health issues, Jacobson said. She added that Holmes was still considered a security risk because of his notoriety.

Holmes was convicted in July of murdering 12 moviegoers and wounding dozens more during a shooting rampage at a Denver-area multiplex in 2012.

Prosecutors sought the death penalty for the California native, who had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but jurors could not unanimously agree the former neuroscience graduate student should be put to death.

Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour sentenced Holmes to a dozen consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole, plus a maximum 3,318 years for his conviction on attempted murder and explosives charges.

Following his sentencing, Holmes was housed at the state penitentiary in Canon City, where he had minimal contact with other prisoners.

In October, another inmate attacked Holmes at the Canon City lockup as they passed each while being escorted by prison guards.

Holmes was not injured in the assault, and his attacker, Mark Daniels, would be disciplined administratively rather than in court, prison officials said at the time.

Jacobson said she could not call the latest move permanent because circumstances could change, meaning Holmes might still ultimately be transferred to another Colorado facility, or perhaps out of state.

Behavioral disorders of such magnitude as has been reported in this case stem from childhood mental illness. There is NO cure. There is NO rehabilitation. And if he is to remain in custody until he dies, why waste time and money on a cause where it is known to have no positive results? Illogical.

Exclusive: Inside the Prison Assault on Aurora Theater Shooter James Holmes

ABC News By JOSH MARGOLIN and CAROL McKINLEY
3 hours ago


"...Documents obtained by ABC News show that Holmes, 28, was not supposed to cross paths with anyone but prison staff while housed in the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City. But as Holmes exited the office of his case manager on Oct. 8, a prison staffer opened a sliding gate without realizing he was putting Holmes in close proximity with another inmate, convicted car thief Mark “Slim” Daniels. The officer escorting Holmes was unable to radio the officer controlling the gate “as his battery had gone dead,” according to a so-called “intelligence assessment” drafted after the incident occurred.

With the sliding gate opened and Holmes within striking distance, Daniels, according to the reports, “ran through the slider, squeezing through as it was closing toward offender Holmes … Offender Daniels began hitting offender Holmes, in and around his head, with his fist.”..."



"....Hood said the assault was “simple” and should not have led to the extreme measure of Holmes being transferred to an undisclosed location.

“It’s called a ‘dump job,’” Hood said. “Moving him on to another warden. He’s always going to be a target. The [Colorado] Department of Corrections could easily have placed him in a secure setting. It’s ironic to me that they transfer him out of state for such a simple assault. The Department of Corrections dropped the ball. The inmate was assaulted. The system broke down.”..."

Prison transfer of James Holmes reportedly thwarted plan to question him
Published April 11, 2016

"....The man who killed 12 people in the Colorado movie theater massacre was moved to another prison right before he was supposed to be deposed in a lawsuit, the second time in less than a year a transfer hampered efforts by lawyers to question him under oath.

James Holmes was to be questioned in a civil trial involving more than 60 survivors of the 2012 shooting and relatives against Cinemark, owner of the Aurora, Colo. theater, which alleges the company should have foreseen the possibility of an attack and done more to protect against it, The Denver Post reports.

The claims are divided in two lawsuits, one in state and federal court, both of which are scheduled for trial later this year.


Lawyers for Holmes scheduled a deposition for Holmes in the state case to question him under oath over his planning for the attack and choice of the theater as the target, but that was canceled when he was moved the first time to a prison in Pueblo, Colo., according to records obtained by the newspaper.

The deposition was then rescheduled for Jan. 21, but then Colorado corrections officials announced Holmes had yet been moved again to an undisclosed prison.

Colorado Department of Corrections spokeswoman Laurie Kilpatrick told the Denver Post that Holmes, who had become a target for attacks in prison, was moved for his own safety and the safety of corrections employees. She said the transfers had nothing to do with the timing of the depositions. ...."

Wow. I hadn't considered the safety of the corrections employees. This makes sense because the employees would be in greater danger if someone attempts to attack JH as they move him about the facility.

".....In a civil trial starting Monday in state court, 28 victims' families will argue Cinemark, which owns the theater where the shooting happened, knew the midnight blockbuster would attract at least 1,000 people and should have had guards patrolling the parking lot, where they might have seen Holmes suiting up in head-to-toe body armor in his car. The lawsuit says theater employees failed to check doors, lacked closed-circuit television cameras that would have allowed them to spot trouble and did not intervene as victims lay wounded and dying in the aisles.

Theaters across the country had extra security for the July 20, 2012, premiere, and the Century 16 theater in Aurora typically had guards Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, said New York attorney Marc Bern, who is representing 27 of the families. The premiere fell on a Thursday....."

Just tell me why:
LE responded within 1 1/2 minutes?
A major "terrorist training" activity was taking place at a location close at hand?

Reminds me of Sandy Hook... and the Oregon shooting, etc.
They each had major training activities taking place nearby... same time!
And that was also true of 911 where military air force officials at military airports were ordered to scramble after the first plane hit...and they asked, "Is this the scheduled drill planned for today?"

The shooting of Gabby Gifford?
The main intent was to take out a judge who had expressed opposition to federal interest.
Yeah, he died...

Mother of Colorado Movie Theater Shooter James Holmes Speaks Out for First Time

By JULIA JACOBO
May 14, 2016, 10:56 AM ET


The mother of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooter James Holmes, spoke out for the first time this week to raise awareness for Mental Health Awareness Month, condemning her son's actions and highlighting the importance of early detection of mental illness.

In an interview with ABC News affiliate KGTV in San Diego, Arlene Holmes described her son as a "happy" and "friendly" child, who would frequently invite friends over to their home. But, things changed around the time he turned 12 or 13-years-old, she said.

"I noticed that he was sadder than a child should be," Holmes told KGTV.

Yes, I agree with Mrs. Holmes. I sincerely hope that mental health care will become a greater focus in the United States.

Movie theater chain cleared over Aurora mass shooting: Victims' families defeated after arguing Cinemark should be held responsible for Dark Knight Rises massacre

"....The owners of an Aurora, Colorado movie theater where a gunman killed 12 people during the screening of a Batman film in 2012 are not liable for the mass shooting, a jury decided Thursday.

Six jurors sided with Cinemark in the civil lawsuit filed by more than two dozen survivors and relatives of the dead, who argued the theater should be responsible for failing to take safety precautions. ...."

"...'They failed to have armed security guards on the night of a blockbuster movie premiere when they always have armed security on Friday, Saturday and Sunday,' Bern said.

'They failed to have CCTV on the perimeter of the building, they failed to have roving guards around the building, they failed to have silent door alarms on the auditorium exit doors,' he added. ..."

"....Mark Daniels, 27, will be charged with assaulting Holmes and a correctional officer. The incident happened earlier this month in a hallway as Holmes and Daniels were being moved in the prison where they're both housed.

Daniels lunged at Holmes and took a couple swings at him, but Holmes was not hurt. The correctional officer was not hurt either..."

(Happened October 8, 2015. IMO, from what I am reading, I have to wonder if it was more of an attempt than an actual assault. )

JAMES HOLMES Thought His Life In Jail Would Be FUN & EASY … Then He Was Introduced To PRISON JUSTICE

July 15, 2017

"....Daniels took Holmes’ head and bashed it with a sliding door repeatedly.

Daniels then sent a letter confirming the attack saying, “First and foremost, I would like to express my deepest condolences to all the victims and to the families, I’m so sorry I couldn’t wipe him out and sent him packing to Satan’s lake of fire. It was just impossible to do by myself with so many cops. I did get him six or seven good ones and this stupid ass case manager [name deleted] ran out of her office and and put her head in front of Holmes’ cause I was about to knock him out. That’s why she got socked a few times.” ...."
