    This shooting incident leads me to conclude that anyone who buys a ticket into the movie can open the exit door, prop it open and let in all their friend, or go to their car, put on their gear and come back in ... while innocent consumers sit there watching the move. Why is this possible. Why isn't the door wired to show that it is open? I am a big fan of yours Anderson since you came on the air. Please investigate how this infraction of the " rules" could happen. I can understand that the door would open after the movie to let people out..but during the movie? Unless there was a fire? How did this happen? Netflix has me captive, I will not go to a movie again in a theater that would allow this to happen.

    must have had military training and lots of it. Cover up and conspiracy theories will explode this week
    Blogers should have each witness describe in detail the shooters stance, re-loading moves, strut, waving of the weapon etc. Military training is easy to spot.db

    I wonder whether the Aurora killer did it for the thrill like Leopold and Loeb. It was clearly a priority for him to survivie to see what he had accomplished or he wouldn't have gotten all the body armor and peacefully surrendered. If nothing else, body armor should not be readily obtainable since I can think of no valid reason why non law enforcement personnel would ever have use of it.

    As the experts and the media continue to analyze every minute of the killer's life, for whatever agenda they are discussing; this tragedy will continue to trickle down through the American public, leaving more questions, and no answers. Enough already! A brilliant young man will be diagnosed with a horrible disease, that robs many such young men of their futures, and, causes heartbreaking tragedies such as this one in Colorado. The family, friends, first responders, and everyone else, whom this tragedy has personally touched, are trying to get through each second, minute, hour of the day. They do not need to be revisted with all the expert's opinions in all the media and social networks. May God, or your higher power, bring comfort to those effected.

    For an unemployed graduate student, this criminal shooter had funds to buy a lot of weapons, ammunition and protective gear.
    **** WHERE IN THE MONEY FROM???****
    If the money came from his family, they are to be charged with the crime as well!
    It is obvious his mother knew right away it was her son who committed the crime.
    Prosecute and excute all guilty parties!
