At least 14 killed and 50 wounded at a Midnight Movie Screening of Batman, “Dark Knight Rises”, in Aurora Colorado


An armed gunman, approximately 6’tall, kicked in an emergency exit door and threw a smoke bomb into the darken movie theater before opening fire. He was wearing a bulletproof vest, in riot gear and helmet, completely covered in all black with goggles, holding a shotgun.

The gunman was seen setting off a smoke bomb before slowly making his way upstairs and randomly targeting people in the theater.

One man reported that there was confusion in the theater when the shooting began because many believed the sound of gunfire was coming from the movie. All of a sudden he looked around and saw people running and screaming and realized the gunshots were coming from inside the theater.

When the shots ended, at least 14 people were killed and 50 more wounded as the gunman opened fire during a midnight screening of a new Batman Premiere of “Dark Knight Rises” at the Century Aurora 16 Town Center theatres located at 14200 East Alameda Ave, Aurora, Colorado.

Of the wounded, at least 20 were treated at the University of Colorado Hospital. All of the wounded suffered from gunshot wounds, which ranged from minor to critical, “They’re arriving by police, by ambulance and some are walking in said spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery.

The gunman, a Caucasian male whose identity has not been released, was apprehended by police without gunfire or resistance, in a rear parking lot of the theater, according to Frank Fania, a police spokesman.

The police also seized a rifle and handgun from the suspect and another gun was found in the theater. According to the police, the gunman acted alone.

This is a fluid situation and will be updated as soon as possible.

YOUR VOTE Is Your Voice . . . And . . . YOUR VOICE is Your Vote . . . 2012 Series

What do you really know about the candidates that are running for president? Let’s take one at a time, starting with Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney Interview with Jim Acosta (July 13, 2012)

Let’s read some of the quotes that Mitt Romney is famous for:

“I should tell my story. I’m unemployed.”– Mitt Romney, speaking in 2011 to unemployed people in Florida. Romney’s net worth is over $200 million.

“I like being able to fire people who provides services to me.” – Mitt Romney, using an unfortunate choice of words while advocating for consumer choice in health insurance plans.

“I’m not concerned about the poor. We have a safety net there.” – Mitt Romney

“I get speaker’s fees from time to time, but not very much.” – Mitt Romney, who earned $374,000 in speaking fees in one year, according to his personal financial disclosure.

Let’s take a look at Mitt Romney’s 2012 Economic Plan:

Romney’s plan is to get the government out of business, because only the private sector has the economic muscle to create the millions of jobs needed. (This sounds like political demagoguery!) What specifically will he do? Let’s see the rough draft in black and white?

Romney also proposes lowering personal, investment and corporate taxes. (How exactly would he lower the taxes?) Show the public his plan, so that the public has time to review it and decide if he is worthy of their vote!

To offset the revenue loss, Romney wants to reduce non-defense government spending by cutting regulations and government departments.(What particular departments is Romney referring too? Spell it out, so that the public is clear on what departments will be downsized, outsource or eliminated altogether.)

Romney is also in favor of returning some of the federal power to the state level.

As you can see, all these vague statements are meaningless without qualifying explanations to substantiate the demagoguery that is being spewed at the public in pep-rally fashion. You walk away feeling elated until someone ask you, “Exactly how will Mitt Romney turn this economy around and get this country on the right track?”

Mitt Romney wants you to believe that he has your best interest and the interest of the country at heart, but he’s hedging his bet and his money in a bank overseas, but don’t worry, if all else fails, he’ll outsource America.

George Zimmerman released to his sweet life as his wife, Shellie refers to his “slush fund!”



The Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case has some eerie semblance of the Casey Anthony case. From the very beginning, Anthony made a mockery of the Justice System, including the jurors [referring to them as dumb and dumber] then laughs about how she fooled them.

George Zimmerman and his wife is laughing at the mockery they’re making out of all the people who continue to fund his “slush fund,” indicating that he has more money now than he has ever had in his life.

Conversation between George and Shellie Zimmerman:

SHELLIE: after this, we go over, you’re gonna be able to just,
have a great life.
ZIMMERMAN: yeah! We will you’re
ZIMMERMAN: I’m (inaudible) excited.
SHELLIE: yeah, you should be.

They also discussed Zimmerman getting out on bail, and how to keep him from the press. The Sentinel reports that his choice of words was not ideal:

… “Well, I have my hoodie,” he says, a possible joke, referring to the hooded sweatshirt Trayvon Martin wore the night Zimmerman stalked and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida on February 26. 2012.

It is painfully clear that George Zimmerman continues to view himself as some kind of hero, rather than the cold bloodied murderer of an unarmed young Black man.

Does this sound like someone who was in fear of his life or someone who understands that before he shot Trayvon Martin, he was unemployed and broke; now he is the “poster child for racial hatred and paranoia thoughts towards Black men” and feels that he shouldn’t be charged because he is White and the young man he shot was Black.

When George Zimmerman returned to court for a second time, it was interesting to see him in his new expensive suit, sat down and immediately began to smile [similar to Casey Anthony’s behavior when she realized that the cameras were on her] and joke with his attorney, as though he already knew the outcome of this hearing.

George Zimmerman and his wife Shellie is playing a lot of people along the way to their “sweet life!” From their attorney all the way down to the sympathetic public who really believes that poor George is getting a bad rap.

I suppose you would be smiling too, if you discovered that your “slush fund” had accumulated more than $300k and counting.

One thing for certain! The overqualified accountant that is responsible for the oversight and disbursement of funds from Zimmerman’s “slush fund” is clueless.

I can only imagine the jokes that George and Shellie are making behind close doors, laughing and joking as they try to decide what they’re going to do with their new-found bounty from the dumb and dumber crowd. “Sounds Familiar, It should!”
