Incendiary Image of the Day: James Holmes + Jared Loughner Edition

A TTAG reader writes: “Something has been bugging me about the Holmes mug shot (Aurora theater massacre). Maybe it’s because I’m up at 1.30am and my brain gets fuzzy. It looked FAMILIAR. It dawned on me that his smile… even his whole face… resembled that of Loughner’s mug shot (Tuscon / Gabby Giffords speech massacre). So, I took each mug shot and put this together in Photoshop. The third photo is one superimposed on the other with 50% opacity. Spooky.”

    Damn…that is spooky. Weird.

  2. avatarAharon says:

    Very weird. Can you do the same with Clinton, Bush, and Obama?

  3. avatarmatt says:

    It isnt spooky, it is just two pictures of people smiling. Find two other people of the same build and skin complexion, smiling, and you’ll get the same result. Why is this article here?

    Thank you for the nightmares…

    Sickening, they both look super proud, I hope Holmes cries like a baby like Loughner when he gets Gang Ra!3d! in the shower and gets put on suicide watch.

    Here’s a good reason not to smile when being photographed.

  7. I don’t think that’s Holmes’ mug shot, I think it’s his school ID picture.

      yeah thats not his mug shot I watched his arraignment (whatever it was) on CNN today and he has faded orange and red hair.

    Anyone else dry firing at the screen right about now?

    Manchurian Candidate anyone?

  10. Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as people consider concerns that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    They look like Dear Leader’s son, if He had one.

    This is for both of them:

    This is not James Holmes’ mug shot. This is an old picture of him. He had orange hair and looks constipated in his mug shot.
