Well you know Dane Cook is washed up and done in comedy when he’s resorting to jokes like these ones for attention. He has a stand up show yesterday at LA’s “Laugh Factory” and said the joke below during his set. Not the best way to get some laughs and way too soon to say anything about this horrific tragedy.
“I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into [The Dark Knight Rises],” Cook’s joke began, “And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie’s pretty much a piece of crap. Yeah, spoiler alert. I know that if none of that would have happened, I’m pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in realizing it was a piece of crap, probably was like, ‘Ugh, fucking shoot me.’”
James Holmes, the suspected shooter in last week’s movie theater massacre, has told his Colorado jailers he doesn’t know why he’s locked behind bars, the Daily News reports.
But no one at the Arapahoe County Detention Center is buying Holmes’ story, a lockup worker told the News. The jailers who come in contact with Holmes, who is sequestered from other inmates, believe he’s faking amnesia.
Since the 24-year-old PhD dropout was accused of killing 12 theatergoers and wounding 58 at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last Friday, the media has lavished attention on Holmes’ odd behavior.
So this is getting way too out of hand. Some people are starting to think they themselves are James Holmes and are trying to replicate what he did in various different ways.
First we have this man, Michael Barboa who was arrested in Arizona while watching the movie because he stood up and grabbed his backpack. This caused the entire movie theatre to panic and everybody evacuated the premises. He was intoxicated when this happened and when the police searched his backpack all he had was some moonshine and some more empty bottles. This one was simply an overreaction by the movie goers.
Then you have Timothy Courtois from Maine. He went to the entire movie, left doing 112 MPH on the freeway with an AK-47 in his car along with other hand guns, and was on his way to go kill a co-worker. The most disturbing part was that when the police pulled him over they also found news clippings of the Colorado shooting in the vehicle. His apartment was later searched and more guns were found, glad they got this dude off the streets.
Last but not least we have Clark Tabor (California) who was waiting in line at the movie and shouted “I should go off like Colorado” followed by “Does anybody have a gun?”. He yelled these things out of frustration for standing in line too long. Let’s hope that these copy cats don’t get out of hand because this is not something to be played with. People will just stop going to the movies.
Not much to say about this video besides that James Holmes looks like one crazy man dozing in and out of consciousness while on the stand.
This is James Holmes and he is the shooter that unloaded rounds and rounds of bullets in a Colorado movie theatre last night at the premiere of the new Batman movie injuring 38 people and leaving 12 dead. He was a student at the University of Colorado studying medicine, the photo was released today by the school. After being arrested Holmes also admitted to having explosives in his apartment which was booby trapped when the bomb squad arrived. We keep the families effected by this shooting in our thoughts and prayers, no single person should ever have to go through something like this.
