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.
      I wasn't even that way... I was thinking more on the "hey guys I'm here" style bigfooting.

            Somebody is responsible for the shooting. His name is James Holmes. That's it.

              He was referring to violence shown in movies and such, I think.

                He was, but he was wrong. No one "has to be responsible" for it. It isn't a crime.

                  He apparently doesnt have a problem going to watch it himself though. "Movies are too violent....but I am still going to watch them"

                    Bale needs to get Holmes in a room and just yell like this. NSFW.

                      I agree he was wrong. It's shown because, like Proud said, people like this guy pay to watch it.

                      I hope any lawsuit in this tragedy is thrown out without hesitation.

                              Upgraded charges:
                              The US Attorney's office now says Courtois bought one of his guns, a .223 caliber rifle, illegally at Cabela's on July 20th.

                              They say Courtois was using both marijuana and "K2," a synthetic form of the drug, but he told Cabela's he was not using controlled substances. Officials also say they found K2 in Courtois' car.

                              He has been charged with one count of making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm and two counts of possession of firearms by an unlawful user of controlled substances. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
                              It turns out the guy has bipolar disorder for which he has medication. When he took his medicine, he was fine. He stopped taking it a few weeks ago and his family tried to force him, but found they had no legal recourse.

                              Let's be honest...it was only a matter of time before he did his own version of the Colorado shooting spree. Excellent job by the police...who knows how many lives they saved.

                                I could be wrong but this seems to be a common component in mass shootings over the years.
