Aurora Colorado Shooter James Holmes’ Trial Postponed Indefinitely [OPINION]
District judge Carlos Samour has postponed the trial of the Aurora movie theater shooter James Holmes indefinitely. The delay is because attorneys on both sides can’t agree whether Holmes should undergo another psychiatric evaluation. Are you kidding me?
I understand that in this country we are innocent until proven guilty, but this is just silly. I know the man is insane, what sane person would go into a full movie theater and start shooting? He’s crazy and needs to be locked away until his death.
I know the state is trying to hit him with the death penalty but I don’t think there is any way to prove he isn’t insane. His lawyers will bring in some fancy doctor and convince a jury that Holmes was insane at the time of the shootings. Then he will get to spend the rest of his life in some state hospital.
I think the state should just go to trial and take their case to a jury. I can’t see anyway of him being found not guilty. He was caught at the scene red handed and after what they found in his apartment it shouldn’t be that hard to hit him with a life sentence.
Then real justice will be served in prison, remember what happened to Jeffrey Dahmer when he got into the general population.
