Dark Knight Rises Shooting

A very dark knight, parents strongly cautioned that a lunatic may shoot people in the theater

James Holmes, the suspect in the “Dark Knight Rises” shooting in Aurora, Colorado wore a gas mask and bullet proof vest. The character, Bane, in the movie wore the same. Some witnesses initially thought the shooter was part of the show.

Here’s a review of “The Dark Knight Rises” by Jenny McCartney for the Daily Telegraph. McCartney complained in the piece, written before the attack, that the level of violence in films has become less cartoon like and more realistic and sadistic.

Meanwhile, ABC News has done it again. Brian Ross wrongly reported that Holmes may have Tea Party connections. An apology has been issued. Read ABC News coverage of the Dark Knight Rises Shooting.
