Colorado ‘Batman’ Shooter Called Himself The Joker

New York Police Chief Ray Kelly has been tapping into all the latest news on the Aurora cinema shooting, no doubt looking for a potential terror link. But while it’s still very early days, it appears that – like Jared Loughner and Anders Breivik before him – James Holmes is just a seriously malf’d lone wacko. And it appears this one storyboarded his own Batman scene. “’We have some information, most of it is public. It clearly looks like a deranged individual. He had his hair painted red, he said he was ‘The Joker,’ obviously the ‘enemy’ of Batman,’ Kelly said at a news conference Friday.” And cbslocal.com says he plans to guard against potential copycatters by putting NYPD officers in theaters screening The Dark Knight Rises throughout the five boroughs. “Nassau County police have also increased patrols, which include canine units, emergency services personnel and members of the department’s special operations unit, at area theaters on Long Island.”
