That's why I'm kind of glad they got him alive. I'd like to hear, in his own words, just what the hell he was thinking.

Given that he didn't self-destruct, and even willingly surrendered, I would not be surprised if it was some kind of psychotic bid for fame. Not only will he be a notorious mass-murderer, but he'll also hijack some of the movie's hype, and he'll become part of the whole history of the Batman franchise. Or maybe he thought he was striking a blow for some cause or other, like that guy in Finland. Or maybe the reason is crazier than that. We'll just have to wait and see.

It does reaffirm my belief that the scariest monsters are the human ones.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

This was all over the TV when I got up this morning. Unbelievable.

All I can say is "Geez. Humans suck."

Untreated mental illness is a serious problem in this country.

From the sound of it, this wasn't a spur-of-the-moment thing.  He had a plan.  Scary as hell.

Awful thing, and we'll have to see why he did such a thing.  My first thought is that he wants the notoriety.

An interesting question is if, instead of attempting to flee, attacking the gunman would have resulted in less people being killed and wounded.  Running away from someone who is armed and firing is entirely understandable, but it's probable that a group rush would have taken him down.

Fear has that effect.

No one wants to play spin the bottle with a guy with a gun.

It may be true that they could rush him thinking "he can't take down all of us," but nobody wants to be the guy he does take down.

Sad and disturbing it's going to be hard for people to feel safe just doing everyday, mundane things. Much too easy for nuts to get guns.  No one noticed this guy dressed up in protective gear..people probably just thought he was another fan dressed up. Disturbing. Don't want to get into a debate about that though. Our hearts and thoughts should be with the unfortunate victims of this madman. Bluesad

I agree! If this was a bid for notoriety then I wish he'd have just killed himself.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
