James Holmes´ psychiatrist
warned of threat before attack

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/4/2013 9:38:45 PM

Denver - A psychiatrist who treated James Holmes told campus police a month before the Colorado theater attack that Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a danger to the public, according to documents released Thursday. Dr. Lynne Fenton, a psychiatrist at the University of Colorado, Denver, told police in June that the shooting suspect also threatened and intimidated her. It was more than a month before the July 20 attack at a movie theater that killed 12 and injured 70. (Snip) Whitten said Fenton was following her legal requirement to report threats to authorities, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Comments:
And, the hand wringing begins. There is no way that in our normal court system today that some threat like this will be taken seriously until after the fact as proven by the theater massacre. Even the crazy have "rights," and the ACLU will be quick to point them out till some tragedy happens. At this point, one shouldn´t care about why, but rather how soon can he be locked away or executed. Then, let the nice psychiatrists visit him.

I´m surprised the asspress reported this because it shows that crazies are left on the streets to carry out their attacks because they can´t easily be involuntarily locked away anymore, or are out in a few days, "cured."

Only one example, but it shows that what the Left claims it wants, and what it says will usher in Utopia, might have some imperfections.

Beyond that, recalling that such a tiny, tiny fraction of guns is ever used in crimes, much less in mass murders, let me ask the obvious but unasked question: how many who make "homicidal threats" commit murder? How many commit mass murders? Will we take 10,000 people, 100,000, off the street because we´ll be sure to get one real wacko?

And what about non-explicit threats? Interpretations by the doctors? Do that many patients really come in and say, "Well, Doc, I bought some guns and ammo. [See? This is my receipt.] And look at this double-stack magazine -- you´´d never guess it holds 20 rounds, would you? Anyway, I´ll need all this next Tuesday. See, I decided to kill at least 15 people then. I´m planning to do it at a big restaurant during their Tuesday discount lunch special."

It was my belief that if you said you wanted to hurt yourself or another person that your mental health counselor or physician had to report it to authorities and you could be Baker Acted.

#1, 2 and 3 all make good points.

My only question is, was notifying only the campus police that Holmes was dangerous a proper fulfillment of the doctor´s requirement to report threats to authorities. Colleges notoriously try to keep a lid on news of crimes/problems on campuses. Wouldn´t a call to the local municipal police department have been better?

Washington - Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, pop. 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy parts of the federal bureaucracy as secretary of health and

If you really want to appreciate the good work that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and the House Republicans did Thursday in passing their budget, consider the Pencil Story. A friend of mine teaches a class that includes a lot of children from families caught up in the government welfare system, a system that encourages dependency and discourages self-reliance. She told me that the students sometimes come to class on test day without even bringing a pencil. Without a pencil, the kids face getting a zero on the test, but that, my teacher-friend said, was the point. Because they know the public schools will push them along

When David Letterman announced last week that he was stepping down as the host of CBS´ "Late Show" in 2015, speculation went into overdrive about who would replace him. On Thursday, the rumor mill was put to rest when the network announced that Stephen Colbert had been given the gig. (Snip) Colbert, 49, has played the role of an ultra-right wing talk-show host, a character he´s almost never broken from during his time on Comedy Central. In an interview Thursday with CBS Radio's Dan Raviv, CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said that "Late Show" viewers can expect to see Colbert be himself in his new role.

Jerusalem - Israel’s capacity to keep tabs on Iran was boosted Wednesday night after the successful launch into space of its 10th and most advanced satellite to date.

Black female lawmakers have now weighed in on an Army controversy over what one soldier calls “racially biased” hairstyle regulations. Sixteen female members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed a letter Thursday to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, stating that the changes are “discriminatory rules targeting soldiers who are women of color,” the Associated Press reported. The rule in question, Army Regulation 670-1, bans hairstyles that require twists and dreadlocks, among other options preferred by minority soldiers. Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs of the Georgia National Guard, has petitioned the White House to overturn the policy.

A panel of House Republicans voted on Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, citing her refusal to answer questions about the agency’s targeting of conservative organizations for special scrutiny. The 21-12 vote by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has been probing the alleged abuse since the scandal erupted last spring, broke along party lines: each of the panel’s Republicans voted to censure Lerner, while the Democrats on the committee opposed the resolution. The vote comes a day after Republicans on a separate committee formally requested the Department of Justice to

Moscow - Russia´s Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Tuesday it had killed Moscow´s most wanted man, Islamist insurgency leader Doku Umarov, in a combat operation. A website sympathetic to the insurgency in the North Caucasus said on March 18 that Umarov was dead but the Russian authorities had not previously confirmed the report. Umarov´s Caucasus Emirate organisation has played a leading role in the insurgency aimed at creating an Islamist state in Russia´s North Caucasus and says it was behind attacks in Moscow in 2010 and 2011 that killed a total of 77 people.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
