James Holmes, the Colorado Movie Massacre Suspect Learns Today if He Faces Death Penalty


To go after the death penalty or not go after the death penalty, that is the question …

James Holmes, the gunman suspected of killing 12 people in the Colorado movie massacre will learn later today whether he will face the death penalty and execution for his crimes. Holmes’ defense attorneys had offered to plead guilty for meticulously planning and brutally executing a plan to attack a Colorado movie theater at midnight during a showing of the latest Batman movie. This pea deal would allow Holmes to live out his days in prison with no chance of parole instead of having him put to death. My person opinion is go for the death penalty … good riddance to bad rubbish.. It would be a terrible message to send out that one could go in a movie theatre, kill 12 people and wound several others and then live your life out in prison on the tax payers dime.

A decision on death or not? Heck, if it were up to me the only thought process would be to either bring back “Sparky” or see if I could not get a one time public stoning exemption for his crimes.

VIDEO – decision expected today.

After a week of legal twists and turns, James Holmes will find out Monday if he could face execution if convicted in the Colorado theater attack that killed 12 people.

Behind-the-scenes maneuvering erupted into a public quarrel between prosecutors and the defense over Holmes’ public offer to plead guilty, but the two sides could still come to an agreement that would spare Holmes’s life in exchange for spending the rest of his life in prison.

      Although the perp is getting all the press, my sense is it’s really important to remember the victims. This is an ongoing fundraiser for Ashley Moser right now – she walked into that theatre with a wonderful life – husband, daughter by her side and another one on the way. She never walked out – quadraplegic, murdered daughter, and lost the child she was carrying as well. If you’re interested in remembering one of the victims who needs our help, here’s a fundraiser who’s funds go directly into her family trust: http://onewi.sh/helpash
