The first and most obvious is that this alleged person, (I don’t even want to dignify his name on the net to give him more publicity,) was frustrated with his unemployment. He studied psychiatric illnesses and perhaps was drawn to the plight of people who did what he did. They usually say these murderers are the quiet people who never spoke up and from what I’ve read, he fits that pattern. He may have been wronged by his medical school and
maybe he couldn’t afford it anymore. So he took revenge. But aren’t guns and bulletproof vests even more expensive than his regular living expenses?
Another conspiracy theory I have is that he was not only a medical student, but perhaps a frustrated screenwriter who, like myself, and many others, submitted material to the major media “glamor gastapo,” in this case, Warner Brothers and felt that he was ripped off,so he took revenge on the theater and it’s patrons. Normally, one would persue this kind of script theft case in court, but he knew it would take years and a whole lot of money to persue this case. That’s why I hardly ever submit my materials to majors studios anymore. It’s so easy for the deep pocketed studio to get away with stealing it. So he lost his mind and “ammoed up” instead.
I also have other theories: Obviously his crime was close to the content of the latest Batman movies. But this particular Batman movie has a villain named Bane, as in Baine Capital, Romney’s infamous company that outsourced many American jobs. Romney usually is so phoney that he says the opposite of what he means. He’s such an American “job creator” in China, India and other countries. He loves America so much that he personally invest in Swiss banks and the Cayman Islands. He hates Obamacare so much, even though he originated a similar system in Massachusetts. Recently, I saw him give quite an eloquent speech about how awful this tragedy is. Yet, the major villain is named after his company, Baine Capital. Could he have put this student up to it, who might have needed the money for medical school, so the name of his former company wouldn’t be maligned? This guy came from San Diego which is a military town. And so did the 9-11 terrorists. Is the military involved in both cases? He had bulletproof gear on so obviously he planned to live. Did he do this to get 3 square meals and a roof over his head in a jail cell when he gave himself up? If he’s so unemployed and broke where did he get all this weaponry?
Again, these are just theories, not facts that I find intriguing. I do have one more that’s even more insidious. That he was hired by the government to invade our privacy, like the way the underwear bomber changed air travel. Now we will have full body scanners invading our privacy every where we go, even at the movies. We’ll all be cacooning at home on our computers,afraid to go out, and be terrorized or at least, government inspected every time we’re in public. This also will have an impact on gun control laws as it should.
Why should anybody in any country legally be allowed to carry such weapons? The only purpose of such weaponry is a war or a massacre not self defense or hunting.
The lessons from this tragedy are somewhat apparent to me. I’m not advocating censorship, but perhaps we as a culture should outgrow Batman type violent entertainment sequels that have been milked to death for money over and over and over again and finally evolve to support more original nonviolent films. No one should be using assault weapons. And people need to learn how to take cover and hide during a crises like this. We should treat our mentally ill kinder and sooner and help each other before a tragedy happens. Also,if this guy was the real Joker, as he claims, where is the real Batman when we need him?
