Colorado shooter thought he was the Joker no joke


James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado shooter who reportedly opened fire at a Batman movie premiere, was a medical student at the University of Colorado, pursuing a PhD in neuroscience, reports ABC News. As part of the attack, Holmes painted his hair red and referred to himself as "The Joker," one of the arch enemies in the DC Comics-inspired Batman movie series. According to news reports, this sudden violent rampage was completely out of character for James Holmes, who was described as "shy."

The New York Times is now reporting:
Billy Kromka, a pre-med student at the University of Colorado, Boulder, worked with Mr. Holmes for three months last summer as a research assistant in a lab of at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Mr. Kromka said he was surprised to learn Mr. Holmes was the shooting suspect. "It was just shocking, because there was no way I thought he could have the capacity to do commit an atrocity like this," he said

"He spent much of his time immersed in the computer, often participating in role-playing online games..."

There is already conjecture that James Holmes may have been involved in mind-altering neuroscience research and ended up becoming involved at a depth he never anticipated. His actions clearly show a strange detachment from reality, indicating he was not in his right mind. That can only typically be accomplished through drugs, hypnosis or trauma (and sometimes all three).

His behavior doesn't add up

His behavior already reveals stark inconsistencies that question the mainstream explanation of events. For example, he opened fire on innocent people but then calmly surrendered to police without resistance. This is not consistent with the idea of "killing everyone."

Furthermore, he then admitted to police that his apartment was booby-trapped with explosives. If you were really an evil-minded Joker trying to kill people (including cops), why would you warn them about the booby trap in advance? It doesn't add up.

"Holmes was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, police said, adding he didn't resist when he was arrested," reports a local CBS news affiliate

"After his arrest, Holmes told police about 'possible explosives in his residence,' Oates said. When police searched his apartment, they discovered it was booby-trapped and evacuated surrounding buildings, police said. Oates said bomb technicians are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material in the third-floor apartment. He said police could be there some time."

None of this checks out. If you're a killer bent on causing mayhem, why tell the police about your surprise bomb waiting for them back at your apartment?
"He said pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated, adding the booby-traps were 'something I've never seen.' One rifle, two handguns, a knife, a bullet proof vest, a ballistic helmet, a gas device, a gas mask, military SWAT clothing and unidentified explosives were also found in Holmes' car, a law enforcement source told CBS News. Oates said Holmes wore a gas mask, a ballistic helmet and vest as well as leg, groin and throat protectors during the shooting."

In other words, this guy was equipped with exotic gear by someone with connections to military equipment. SWAT clothing, explosives, complex booby-traps... c'mon, this isn't a "lone gunman." This is somebody who was selected for a mission, given equipment to carry it out, then somehow brainwashed into getting it done.

"Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment is booby-trapped with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable devices. It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it," reports Yahoo News (

This is not your run-of-the-mill crime of passion. It was a carefully planned, heavily funded and technically advanced attack. Who might be behind all this? The FBI, of course, which has a long history of setting up and staging similar attacks, then stopping them right before they happen. See four documented stories on these facts:

As you soak all this in, remember that the FBI had admitted to setting up terror plots, providing the weapons and gear, staging the location of the bombings and even driving the vehicles to pull it off! This is not a conspiracy theory, it's been admitted by the FBI right out in the open. Even the New York Times openly reports all this in stories like this one:

NYT: Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I. (

THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years -- or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts. But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. ...the F.B.I. provided a van loaded with six 55-gallon drums of “inert material,” harmless blasting caps, a detonator cord and a gallon of diesel fuel to make the van smell flammable. An undercover F.B.I. agent even did the driving...

Mystery man Holmes has no background

On top of all this, Holmes apparently has no background. "He's not on anybody's radar screen -- nothing," said a peace officer in a NYT article. "This guy is somewhat of an enigma. Nobody knows anything about him." (

Mr. Holmes's only criminal history is a traffic summons, the authorities said. He earned a bachelor's degree with honors in neuroscience in 2010 from the University of California, Riverside, and was a graduate student in neurosciences at the University of Colorado at Denver's Anschutz Medical Campus... He was currently collecting unemployment...

Question: How does an unemployed medical student afford $20,000 in weapons gear?

If you start to look at the really big picture here, the obvious question arises: How does an unemployed medical student afford all the complex weapons gear, bomb-making gear, "flammable" booby trap devices, ammunition, multiple magazines, bullet-proof vest, groin protection, ballistic helmet, SWAT uniform and all the rest of it?

A decent AR-15 rifle costs $1,000 or more all by itself. The shotgun and handgun might run another $800 total. Spare mags, sights, slings, and so on will run you at least another $1,000 across three firearms. The bullet-proof vest is easily another $800, and the cost of the bomb-making gear is anybody's guess. With all the specialty body gear, ammunition, booby-trap devices and more, I'm guessing this is at least $20,000 in weapons and tactical gear, much of which is very difficult for civilians to get in the first place.

The mere manufacture of an explosive booby-trap device is, all by itself, a felony crime by the way. And remember: "Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment is booby-trapped with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable devices. It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it," reported Yahoo News (

Question: Where does an unemployed, introverted medical school student get the training to deploy sophisticated booby traps, tactical body armor, weapons systems and more? Certainly not in graduate school!

All this leads to an obvious third party influence over all this. Someone else taught this guy these skills and funded the acquisition of the equipment.

Staged just in time for a vote on the UN small arms treaty?

More and more, this shooting is looking like a deliberate plot staged by the government itself much like Operation Fast and Furious pulled off by the ATF ( which helped smuggle tens of thousands of guns into Mexico for the purpose of causing "gun violence" in the USA, then blaming the Second Amendment for it.

All this looks like James Holmes completed a "mission" and then calmly ended that mission by surrendering to police and admitting everything. The mission, as we are now learning, was to cause as much terror and mayhem as possible, then to have that multiplied by the national media at exactly the right time leading up the UN vote next week on a global small arms treaty that could result in gun confiscation across America. (

Even wrote about this quite extensively, warning readers about the coming gun confiscation effort related to the UN treaty. The story was authored by Larry Bell ( and says the UN treaty could "override our national sovereignty, and in the process, provide license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights."

In other words, this has all the signs of Fast & Furious, Episode II. I wouldn't be surprised to discover someone in Washington was behind it all. After all, there's no quicker way to disarm a nation and take total control over the population than to stage violence, blame it on firearms, then call for leaders to "do something!" Such calls inevitably end up resulting in gun confiscation, and it's never too long after that before government genocide really kicks in like we saw with Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao and other tyrants.

Sarges movie of the week

There message is very clear Illinois needs CCW now I back this video


Charles Nichols Brings Unloaded Open Rifle Carry to Redondo Beach, CA

The California State Assembly recently passed a law banning open carry of unloaded handguns. Now some activists are bringing unloaded rifles out in protest. His stance: ”Since California has made it illegal to carry a handgun, I have to carry a shotgun. People should be allowed to defend themselves in public.”
Charles Nichols brought his unloaded 12-gauge Harrington & Richardson shotgun he purchased about 30 years ago with some shells taped to the back to a city pier. The protest was peaceful, although upon entry to a nearby park his shotgun was confiscated and he was criminally cited for bringing the shotgun onto park property (a violation of a city ordinance).
Nichols is also the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Nov. 30 in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles challenging California’s firearm laws.

Louisiana Bill to Weaken Self Defense Laws Shelved
Members of the Louisiana Senate Committee of the Judiciary deferred an another attempt to weaken the state’s self defense laws. HB1100 was launched by Rep. Burrell ostensibly as an attempt to clarify state law but Chris Rager, a lobbyist for the NRA, said Louisiana law does not allow people to be an aggressor. “The harm of the bill is that it can actually cause confusion rather than clarify,” he said.
This bill was one of several advanced in the wake of the Treyvon Martin shooting.
From the article:
State Sen. Greg Tarver, D-Shreveport, posed the question of what would have happened if Zimmerman shot Martin in Louisiana. “Would the man be charged with murder?” he asked.
Rager declined to offer an opinion, noting the confusion over what transpired before Zimmerman pulled the trigger.
“It depends on the facts of the case,” he said.
Florida Tampa City Council Still Trying to Ban Guns at RNC
Having been rebuffed by Gov. Scott, Tampa is now appealing directly to Congress and the Secret Service to get a federal crackdown on gun possession near the convention.
Currently the Secret Service has a security perimeter around the immediate convention venue where weapons are prohibited except for on-duty law enforcement. The city is urging the Secret Service to expand the perimeter to include the entire Event Zone, including downtown, Ybor City, Hyde Park and the northern tip of Harbour Island.
The Event Zone restricts people from carrying everything from gas masks to rope to water pistols. But state law prohibits local governments from regulating concealed weapons, a rule that has opened the city to national ridicule.
“It’s almost unnerving that the Legislature and governor have put us in this position,” Capin said

Illinous State Representative Mike Bost Urges Petition Support
Pro-gun IL senators and representatives continue to push for concealed carry in the last no-carry-whatsoever state left standing. State Representative Mike Bost is urging citizens to sign a petition supporting the passage of HB 148 which would legalize concealed carry in the state.
Cook county area legislators, principally, have held off the rest of the state in passing the measure. It does seem like only a matter of time before it gets passed.
“There has never been a better time to get conceal carry legislation on the books in Illinois. I am hoping we can garner enough signatures to get the attention of leaders from the Chicago area to get a vote this spring,” said Bost.
Some counties, most recently Adams, have passed non-binding measures legalizing concealed carry in their counties.

City of Chicago denies gun permits to convicted misdemeanor convictions

City Council’s Public Safe committee on Thursday approved a change to Chicago’s firearm ordinance that would ban individuals with a violent misdemeanor conviction from getting a gun permit for five years.

It also approved an ordinance intending to make it harder for people to recycle stolen material in the city.

Both measures passed with little discussion and will go to the full council for consideration on Wednesday.

Emanuel is pushing for the city firearm ordinance rewrite in response to a ruling by a federal judge who struck down a section of the city's law he called vague and unconstitutional. Under the city’s current ordinance, individuals convicted of misdemeanor weapons possession are barred from having a firearm.

Under the recycling facility ordinance, businesses would be required to have working surveillance cameras capable of monitoring all customers and cars. They also would be prohibited from accepting any material delivered in a retail store shopping cart or a government-owned garbage or recycling container.

Person of intrest being questioned

A Cook County sheriff's deputy directs traffic near the scene where corrections officer, Nikkii Bostic-Jones, was killed by a hit-and-run driver late Wednesday night.

Authorities are questioning a suspect in a hit-and-run crash that killed a correctional officer as she was about to begin her overnight shift at Cook County Jail.

Police found a vehicle that matched the description to the one they were looking for, a source said. The vehicle also had a license plate number that nearly matched the one given in a community alert about the investigation, a source said. The suspect lives not far from the jail, the source said.

No charges had been filed as of Thursday evening in connection with the accident that killed Nikkii Bostic-Jones, 38, sources said. She worked for 13 years with the Cook County sheriff's office; twelve of those years was as a correctional officer, and a year as a social worker.

Bostic-Jones was struck while crossing California Avenue near 29th Street just before 11 p.m. Wednesday. Police said she was hit by a navy blue van with stolen license plates and knocked into the path of a sheriff's squad car and pinned underneath it.

Police issued an alert for the van, described as a navy blue full-size conversion van, possibly with blue and white stripes. The alert said the van may have damage to the headlights, front end and right side.

Bostic-Jones's husband, James Jones, said he and their 6-year-old daughter Nikkia watched the officer suit up for work. "Love you all," she said going out the door, as she did every night.

"We're making it. It's like a dream to me, I'm not sure. I still don't believe it," Jones said in a weary voice earlier today.

The oldest of seven children, Bostic-Jones grew up in the Douglas Park neighborhood on the West Side with dreams of being a cop.

"She was a wonderful, wonderful person, she's always wanted to be a police officer," said her cousin, Cissi Bostic, her voice shaking with grief.

Bostic-Jones helped raise her younger siblings while pursuing an education, her family said.

"Nikkii was always the one who went to school," said Cissi Bostic, who grew up with her older cousin. "She went from high school straight to college. She never stopped with her education. She was the smartest one. I'm like, 'OK, I want to be like Nikkii when I grow up.'

"She was my role model," she said.

Bostic-Jones and her husband had been married for seven years but were together for 25 years. The two grew up about three blocks from each other and both attended Collins High School.

Jones, 46, said he was 14 when he first met his future wife. A friend's girlfriend had a steady job babysitting her, but he was about seven years older. It wasn't until he graduated from college and returned to his West Side home that he saw her again through a mutual friend, he said.

"Her friend was dating one of my friends and I saw her and I was like, 'Hey, who is that?' " he said. "In 1994, I meet this girl and that's the same girl I was around all the time. I really didn't pay any attention to her."

Jones said his daughter saw the news about the accident. "She was watching the news and she said, 'Turn it up, I want to see mommy," Jones said. "I told her that, 'Your mommy got hit by car and she got hurt real bad and she passed away.' She understands, she knows."

Because his wife worked the night shift from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m., their weekends were devoted to "family time," said Jones. They often rented a movie which the family would watch while eating popcorn in their Plainfield home. Inevitably, his wife would always doze off, Jones said with a chuckle.

Before he was laid off about nine months ago from the Chicago Public Schools, the two had different schedules and barely saw each other. But after he lost his job, the family would shop together. They also traveled and hit restaurants together, he said.

"It was all about family time, it was a lot of fun" said Jones.

He said his wife was very athletic and played basketball and other sports. "She was very competitive," he said.

Bostic-Jones loved watching track and field events and tennis, and was looking forward to watching the Olympic games. She also had a Ninja motorcycle she would ride with friends, Jones said.

"She rode them better than some men, I didn't know how to ride so she used to ride me on the back of it," Jones said.

He said his wife loved her job as a correctional officer, a job she had for about a decade. She had previously worked as a social worker for the county, but decided she wanted to be a deputy.

"I remember the day she was going to do it. She was mingling around the other officers and said, 'I'm going to take the [entrance] test, and she passed it," said Jones. "Nikkii was just a take charge person, [she liked] the authority of being a peace officer. When people saw her badge, people wanted to talk to her."

She had worked both at the super maximum security section and the maximum security division of the jail. She said her "bubbly personality," combined with her no nonsense manner, garnered respect from the inmates and anyone else who met her.

"They respected her, she didn't have no problems," said Jones. "She didn't play, she didn't sugar coat nothing. She was to the point, she'll tell you but she wouldn't try to hurt your feelings. She never had a problem, its just her attitude. She had the attitude that was bubbly, people were just drawn to her."

Cook County Sheriff Department spokesman Frank Bilecki said morale in the department is very low as co-workers struggled to come to terms with her death. Even the inmates who she dealt with at the jail were affected by her death, said Bilecki.

"She would start her shift off with a hug for her co-workers and by saying have a great day," said Bilecki. "She did a phenomenal job in her job. The detainees were sad because she treated them with respect."

Bilecki said the officer in the squad car that hit her was devastated and was undergoing crisis counseling. The 42-year-old veteran officer was treated and released from St. Anthony Hospital after the accident.

"He's very fragile right now," said Bilecki.

The union representing corrections officers said the stretch of street where Bostic-Jones was killed is "notorious for being extremely dangerous," and called on the city to make it safer.

"Teamsters Local 700 is calling on the city of Chicago to secure an improved crosswalk or stop light on California Boulevard outside the jail," union president William P. Logan said in a statement.

“To hear that a correctional officer has been killed crossing the street just trying to go to work is beyond belief,” Logan said. "The duties of correctional officers are dangerous ones. I would sooner expect to hear that an officer was injured as a result of some act of violence within the jail. Nikkii was just trying to go to work.”

Jones said his wife always complained about the street.

"She felt they were taking their lives into their own hands," said Jones. "They have to have a light there or something."

Vigil held for fallen Sheriff's Prision Gaurd

Officer signs a flag at vigil for colleague killed in hit-and-run.

Dozens of sheriff's officers held an early morning vigil today outside Cook County Jail as police continued to question a suspect in a hit-and-run crash that killed a colleague as she was about to begin her overnight shift there.

White candles lined the area near where Nikkii Bostic-Jones, 38, was struck while crossing California Avenue near 29th Street just before 11 p.m. Wednesday. Police said she was hit by a navy blue van with stolen license plates and knocked into the path of a sheriff's squad car and pinned underneath it.

Late Thursday afternoon, police found a van matching the description and took a 55-year-old man into custody. The man, who has a history of traffic violations, lives near the jail, a source said.

Scott J. Bratlien, the superintendent of the jail's Division 10 where Bostic-Jones worked, described her as a dedicated officer known for her warm personality.

"A couple of the officers. . . said they started their shift each day with a hug from her, and that's what they're going to miss the most. She was just one of those people," Bratlien said. "She did her job, never complained, helped out and got the job done."

Bostic-Jones worked 13 years with the Cook County sheriff's office, 12 of them as a correctional officer and a year as a social worker.
