    You reap what you sow
    What is frighting is that the shooter may also have held views similar to what you have posted.

    Just saying.

    The shooter will have been heavy into whatever "movement" needs to be demonized in order to further certain agendas.

    They are all ready talking about how all of the equipment that the shooter used, was legal and readily available to the public. The drumbeats will be loud and long on this one. Or at least during this news cycle ends or until the next big news break somewhere else.

    With the banking scandals gaining traction, a major distraction could be useful.

    The major radio station talk shows around here have been focused on lists of the "highest paid celebrities and sports figures" this week (to keep people believing that $50 million is a ridiculously large amount of money in the grand scheme, perhaps). Maybe that wasn't working.

    Mass shooting at Batman screening in Aurora, Colo.; At least 12 dead, dozens more wounded


    Updated at 9:15 a.m. ET
    (CBS/AP) AURORA, Colo. - A gas mask-wearing gunman opened fire early Friday at a suburban Denver movie theater, leaving at least 12 people dead and dozens more injured, police said.

    The violent and chaotic scene erupted about 12:30 a.m. local time as the suspected gunman, identified as 24-year-old James Holmes, stood at the front of one of the Century 16 theaters at the Aurora Mall where the latest Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" was playing. Witnesses reported that the gunman entered the theater through an emergency exit door and threw a gas canister before opening fire.

    "Then it was a blur," Spenser Sherman told "CBS This Morning" said. "Then I heard a couple gunshots."
    "I thought it was part of the movie, like a fun little prank - that it would be over in a few seconds. It obviously wasn't.

    She said she only saw a silhouette of the suspect, and that the gunman said nothing.
    "Everybody had dropped to the floor after the first couple gunshots, and then he fired some more. And then after that, there was a pause in the gunshots. Some people say he was reloading, I don't know. But at that point, my boyfriend was like 'This is the time, we need to go, we need to get out of the theater right now.' So we ran."
    She and her friends got out safe. Sherman said she saw one woman with blood on her face. "It's really mind-boggling that someone would turn an event like this into something this terrible."

    I'm wondering what kind of prescription drugs the shooter was on.

    Given the prevalence and unpredictable effects of psychoactive medications, and the ineptitude among those who prescribe them, it is very likely that the gunman just snapped.

    However, the propaganda media can spin this any direction. Since when has minutiae like truth ever accounted for anything among the masses?
