'Batman' gunman was seeing psychiatrist

2012-07-27 22:20

Denver - Court papers say the former graduate student accused in the Colorado cinema shooting was being treated by a psychiatrist at the university where he studied.

The revelation was disclosed on Friday in a defence motion.

The motion sought to discover the source of leaks to some media outlets that a package that James Holmes sent the psychiatrist contained a notebook with descriptions of an attack.

The motion says the package contained communications between Holmes and his psychiatrist that should be shielded from public view.

      I wish Colorado used slow hanging. But unfortunately that State uses lethal injection.

    This lunatic is really smart. He actually set himself up to be declared insane even before his Joker act. By locking him in an asylum, it will further convince him that he is the Joker (it happens in the books all the time). And then he'll escape and kill again. Just kill him now and end his sick game before it starts.

      You are right. If he ever repents at all, it will be in heaven.

    And he was allowed to buy firearms despite of that.

    everyone pleads insane when they fail to admit to being guilty. It was all planned

    Even on the first day i read about this guy I already known that he was insane and when I saw he was busy with his doctoral studies at age 24. It was clear this guy snap to much information and he was still reading comics. Its not an excuse for killing all those inocent people. He is an insane person who should be locked with that strapjackets.
