Re: Gunman kills 12 in Colorado movie theater
Do they really think the movie was the trigger in this? I think the movie was the target because it was high profile and at a time when crazy people tend to do crazy things, not because it was Batman. I wouldn't expect copycats to spring up around the country/world.
It's kind of frustrating that our response to everything is to try to prevent it after the fact. Not saying they could have prevented this, but more police at NYC screenings isn't the answer either.
I think the media is heavily attaching Batman to it because that makes it more sensational.
I have no doubt the guy wanted to live out some fucked Batman villan scenario. he used tear gas which is awefully familiar to Batman Begins and he shot up the place.
The movie was likley the trigger the way Marilyn Manson was the trigger for Columbine. Not at all but in the minds of fucked up idiots absolutely an influence because they are fucked in the head
This guy targeted a Batman movie specifically I bet because he was probably a big fan and knew he'd be forever linked to Batman. he's already known as the Batman Killer so he wins. He got what he wanted.
