James Holmes Convicted of First Degree Murder in 2012 Colorado Movie Theater Massacre in Aurora, Colorado



A jury has convicted James Holmes of First degree murder in the 2012 attack on defenseless movie goers in Aurora, Colorado where 12 people were killed. The jury also found Holmes guilty of attempted murder on all of the 140 counts against him for the 70 people wounded in the shooting. Hopefully, the next step will be that James Holmes is sentenced to death.

Jurors convicted Colorado theater shooter James Holmes on Thursday in the chilling 2012 attack on defenseless moviegoers at a midnight Batman premiere, rejecting defense arguments that the former graduate student was insane and driven to murder by delusions.

The 27-year-old Holmes, who had been working toward his Ph.D. in neuroscience, could get the death penalty for the massacre that left 12 people dead and dozens of others wounded.

Jurors took about 13 hours over a day and a half to review all 165 charges. The same panel must now decide whether Holmes should pay with his life.

      Most of this trial was a waste of time and money. They had him at the scene. There was no doubt that he was guilty.

      The money spent on the trial should have been spent investigating all of his background from his early childhood forward so that the public could have information to recognize the warning signs of this dangerous behavior.
