According to Fox News’s article, “Officers deliver emotional testimony about scene of Colorado theater shooting“:
The officers struggled to hold back the tears as they recalled the Colorado theater shooting: discovering a 6-year-old girl without a pulse, trying to keep a wounded man from jumping out of a moving police car to go back for his 7-year-old daughter, screaming at a gunshot victim not to die.
“After I saw what I saw in the theater — horrific — I didn’t want anyone else to die,” said Officer Justin Grizzle, who ferried the wounded to the hospital. …”
James Holmes, the man in the image above, is accused of going on a “deadly ramage.” Holmes didn’t show any emotion. … “At one point, a woman buried her head in her hands when an officer recalled finding the 6-year-old girl.”
“He’s heartless. He really is,” Sam Soudani said. “He has no emotion. He has no feeling. I don’t know anybody can live that way,” Sam Soudani said of the gunman afterwards.
Fortunately, his daughter survived despite being hit by shrapnel by his explosive device, according to Fox News.
NBC’s transcript reports that “Weeks after a shooting spree at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school left 20 children and six adults dead. But, NBC adds that “prosecutors are laying out their case with the nation embroiled in a debate over gun violence and mental illness.”
It is going to be a difficult court this week. Prosecutors still have hours of the crime scene of the videos. …” For more of the transcript, please visit NBC News.
This is going to be a difficult case. If Holmes pleads guilty to the charges, he will avoid the death penalty and will remain in prison for the rest of his sorry, pathetic existence.
I am fed up that the mental health system does provide sufficient assistance to people who desperately need it. James Holmes should be in a mental institution instead of being free to roam the streets as he did.
