    If the employer does in fact exist, I would expect a terrorizing charge to be brought forth. It shouldn't be that difficult to determine whether or not he was employed and by whom.

      Ever have one of those days where you say "I hate my boss!"? Or "I could just kill my boss!"? Now in this PC, Homeland Security, and TSA world, we'd probably be charged with uttering a threat, or sent to counseling, mediation, or whatever, instead of letting you blow off steam.

        Saying you hate your boss is considerably different from saying "I'm going to shoot my boss" while in possession of a firearm.

                Your post put me in mind of this exchange in "12 Angry Men":

                Juror #8: There's something else I'd like to talk about for a minute. I think we've proved that the old man couldn't have heard the boy say "I'm gonna kill you," but supposing...
                Juror #10: You didn't prove it at all. What're you talking about?
                Juror #8: But supposing he really did hear it. This phrase, how many times have all of us used it? Probably thousands. "I could kill you for that, darling." "Junior, you do that once more and I'm gonna kill you." "Get in there, Rocky, and kill him!" We say it every day. That doesn't mean we're going to kill anyone.
                Juror #3: Wait a minute. What are you trying to give us here? The phrase was "I'm gonna kill you." The kid yelled it at the top of his lungs! Don't tell me he didn't mean it. Anybody says a thing like that the way he said it, they mean it.

                Which was followed by this exchange a little later:

                Juror #8: Ever since you walked into this room, you've been acting like a self-appointed public avenger! You want to see this boy die because you personally want it, not because of the facts! You're a sadist!
                [Three lunges wildly at Eight, who holds his ground. Several jurors hold Three back]
                Juror #3: I'll kill him! I'LL KILL HIM!
                Juror #8: You don't *really* mean you'll kill me, do you?

                  That's funny. I thought of the exact same exchange. and, of course, the complementary exchange later

                        Pretty neat of Christian Bale to show up at a Colorado hospital and hang out with victims today.

                          So Christian Bale shows up in Denver to comfort the victims, etc. Good for him. But this "social media" nonsense that he "owed" that to those folks is off the charts stupid. The man made a movie. Months ago. And to hold him accountable, in even the tiniest way, for what happened in Aurora, really trivializes the devastation wrought by the shooter. And leaves the totally false impression the movie "caused''Holmes to slaughter innocents.

                          As I say, good for Bale. Although I'd imagine his reasoning for going was equal parts humanitarian and business. The only apology we're due from Christian Bale is for "Newsies," but I digress.

                          Remember, in the hours after Columbine, some doofus put up crosses for the victims AND Klebold and Harris! And what do you know, that same idiot also showed up in Aurora. Evidently he plans to make idioting his life's work.

                            Nobody is owed an appearance... I would almost think his presence would be bad taste unless he REALLY REALLY wanted to do it. Not because it wouldn't be good... it is and would be... just weird.

                              I was careful not to utter that phrase after Columbine and I took butt loads of crap in high school. (Besides, I don't care enough about you [HS] *******s to make that worth my while.)

                                I'm prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt, if only because the visit must have meant a lot to the folks he talked to. Not so much because of the shooting, but because they got to shoot the sh*t with a really big star. And you're certainly right, one way to look at his appearance is a cynical effort to ameliorate (the entirely undeserved) damage the shooting did to the film and the reputations of the principals. As I say, I'm enough of a Pollyana to give the guy the benefit of the doubt.
