Robert Holmes has had an extremely successful career financially. Arlene Holmes works also. So why does James Holmes still have a public defender? Where have his parents disappeared to? Why are they not publicly defending him?
Why are the investigators so sure there is only one person involved in this crime? Why does a person who just randomly murdered men women and children tell police that his apartment was boobytrapped? Where did he learn how to handle the firearms? Why did he passively allow himself to be arrested? Why is there no online presence for James Holmes?
These are only a few of the many questions that are raised whose answers are unknown, and which should be answered easily, but haven’t been. These kinds of unanswered questions raise red flags in people’s minds over the “official” stories they are being told in the media, including in mine. Some of my questions are below.
Why is it that the first thing that James Holmes’ parents did was have their ” family” lawyer defend the mother instead of get a lawyer for their son?
Why is there no discussion of James Holmes family in the media?
I will add updated information below:
Some questions answered here:
Why did Colorado University hire Robert Miller to investigate their handling of James as a student there?
CALL7 Investigators found Miller has close ties to the university. He’s graduated from CU Law School in1965 and according to his website, he won a $58 million verdict for the university in 2003 in a patented lawsuit against a major pharmaceutical company.http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/31330541/detail.html
For more than 45 years, Miller has served as both a prosecutor and defense counsel in many complex legal matters. He routinely conducts internal investigations and advises companies on compliance programs. He was a Judge Advocate General in the U.S. Air Force, District Attorney of Weld County, U.S. Attorney for Colorado, Chief Counsel of Litigation for US WEST, Inc., and has worked for several prestigious law firms including his present position as a partner at Perkins Coie, LLP.http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/newsroom/newsreleases/Pages/Former-US-Attorney-Bob-Miller-to-conduct-independent-review.aspx
Various commentators on this subject that I have found reasonable:
“Who’s your Daddy? ” Arthur Gwynne from mtweekly. An article with questions about Robert Holmes, the alleged shooter’s father.
Strange Facts surrounding this event:
Colorado University had identical drill same day as ‘Batman’ massacre from Hang the Bankers blog discusses the coincidence of students learning about emergency techniques for a theater shooting event the same day.
The performance of the police in the Aurora tragedy will be a key aspect of the trial of James Holmes. How was evidence obtained? What were the details of his capture? How and when did the police learn of the booby-trapped apartment? All of these questions will be raised during the trial.
If there is one.
If James Holmes is found incompetent to stand trial by reason of insanity, how will these questions be answered then? How will we, the people, the “protected”, know how our “protectors” performed? Were they thorough, professional, reasonable, reliable? We all want to answer yes, but can we, truly?
In looking for information about the massacre, I came across a disturbing video from ABC that has bearing on the conduct of this particular police department.
On June 6th, 2012, police stopped 19 cars at an intersection they believed a suspect of a bank robbery was at, and handcuffed every adult-40 people along the side of the road for up to 2 hours. Did they get the right guy? Apparently so, it was reported, but are we sure? Was it worth the price that was paid by the other 39 innocent victims of this police action?
Police Officer Frank Fania told ABC news: “We didn’t have a description, didn’t know race or gender or anything, so a split-second decision was made to stop all the cars at that intersection, and search for the armed robber…”
In a further statement he goes on to say: “It’s hard to say what normal is in a situation like this when you haven’t dealt with a situation like this,” Fania said. “The result of the whole ordeal is that it paid off. We have arrested and charged a suspect.”
They have arrested and charged a suspect in this horrific tragedy as well, James Holmes. Questioning “authorities” does not imply a conspiracy theory is being formulated by the ones asking. It only implies the need for reasonable answers to reasonable questions from reasonable people. Transparency is good for everyone, the protected and the protectors.
