    I thought the same thing when I first heard about it. But that's beside the point, what compels someone to go into a crowded movie theater and fire randomly, knowing full well it can only end with the death of innocent people?

    If he was angry with the world and wanted to bring a gun into the equation, I can think of a way he could have used it that wouldn't have resulted in the death of 12 innocent people... :disgust:

    Woke up to this news. Terrible. Seems like the US can't go for too long without a mass shooting.

    No word from Pidgey yet. His phone is turned off too.

    Come on Eric, let us know you're okay...

    The 9gag thing is a hoax apparently.

    A friend of mine just drove to Colorado on wednesday morning, and they all attended a midnight premiere last night.

    Fortunately, they weren't at this one, but I don't know how to describe the way I feel about it. It's not necessarily fear, it's just...clarity I guess. It could have been them. Brings it a lot closer to home.

    We don't know that he was there but what we do know is that it happened in his town, so the chance of him being there is very real. I tried calling his phone number and it is turned off/not accepting any calls at this time. Waiting is the worst.

    When a big event happens in someone's town, you kind of want to make sure they are okay. Again, we do not know if he was there, but no one has heard from him today.

    Exactly, hope you guys can get in touch with him soon.

    Thanks Vdalem for the information, I read a little bit about the boobytrap how crazy. Are the people in the building at risk or were they evacuated?

    The area around his apartment has been evacuated. There are bomb techs there trying to figure out what they are going to do.
