Psychiatrist warned campus
police about Aurora shooter
a month before mass murder

Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/5/2013 10:05:18 AM

In a revelation that may have Colorado voters rethinking their state’s push on gun control, court documents revealed that the mass shooting in Aurora that killed 12 and injured 70 more could have been prevented by law enforcement. The psychiatrist for suspect, James Holmes, had warned campus police that Holmes was dangerous and homicidal a month before the shooting took place. Lynne Fenton even told the police that Holmes had begun to stalk and threaten her, and yet no action was apparently taken: A University of Colorado psychiatrist told campus police a month before the Aurora

What a horrible tragedy that is that could have possibly been prevented. No wonder they wanted to keep that information sealed.

Lets see how Emperor Zippy the first and Governor Cuomo react to this revelation. I have to believe they had this information anyway shortly after the incident bit chose to suppress it because it didn´t fit their agendas.

Once again a system in place failed to do its job. We don´t need more laws. We need better enforcement.

Read about the Tarasoff decision in California in the 1970s.
Mental health staff at U. California warned police about a similar situation. The police interviewed the person, let him go, and he later murdered Tatiana Tarasoff. Upshot: the murderer was released and sent back to India, the police were exonerated of any blame, and the psychiatrist and psychologist were sued. This present case shows the corruption of the "justice system" and the "gun control" movement to twist truth to achieve their aims. Good journalism to uncover this attempt to tell The Big Lie.

Ah...but a ´key´ element is missed here - she told the campus police the guy was homicidal...

Now, if she´d told them he was making disparaging comments about gays...or refusing to stand for the Mexican national anthem...or questioning why some guy with shaved legs was using the women´s restroom...

You can be *sure* that appropriate attention would have been paid.

She notified campus police and then he dropped out of school. How good is the communication between the campus cops, the Aurora PD and other Colorado law enforcement? My suspicion is it is poor because campus polices tend to see their job as protecting college kids from themselves rather than protecting the general population. There´s a what happens on campus stays on campus mentality. The problem of privacy laws may also play a factor.

Under existing Colorado law the psychiatrist could have notified local law enforcement that the patient was mentally ill and making serious threats. This would have caused them to apprehend and escort him involuntarily to a legally approved psychiatric facility for evaluation and possible admission for up to 72 hours without further ado. It is a myth and a false narrative constantly repeated by the media and others that it is impossibly difficult of complex to have a mentally ill person who is thought dangerous evaluated against their will. Every state in the Union, to my knowledge, has similar laws providing for this. Peace officers can do it if they judge it necessary. All that is necessary is to pick up the phone and dial 911.

The confusion about emergency mental health evaluation seems to result from mixing it up with longer term involuntary hospitalization for treatment.

Once again we see the pernicious effects of the refusal of public officials to make pertinent information about high profile politically charged crimes available to the public. Journalists in this case did their job and sued to get the information, which authorities had stubbornly refused to make available.

A couple of decades ago on Cape Cod, there was a young man who had been institutionalized, and then released, on the provision that he show up at the hospital every day for his meds.

Should he not get his meds, they would alert his mother.

Why? because he had threatened to kill his mother, and he was taken seriously. well, sort of.

One day he didn´t show up. They tried to reach his mother. Too late. She was found decapitated. (by the way, no firearms present)

There are homicidal maniacs in the world, always have been. There is evil, and no amount of social programming by Man will ever eradicate evil.

Psychiatrists and other "mental health professionals" must be able to report individuals for hospitalization at the very least, for observation. And then, committed, if necessary, and reviewed regularly.

Jared Loughner is another obviously sick man. His parents were aware of his violent "peculiarities" or creepy interests. I can imagine how hard it would be to turn in your own child.

Needless to say, we would not want every odd-ball to end up in an institution... the Soviets did that sort of thing, and odd-balls were usually those speaking out against the regime.

The Psychiatrist should be charged. This is no different then a failure to report a case of child abuse. The Psychiatrist knows the proceedure to follow regarding a pt. that is danger to himelf or others, but couldn´t be bothered.

I fear the real issue here is the desire by progressives to vest restriction of consitutional rights by Drs. or worse LEO without adjudication by a court.

Biden has already stated that they have no interest in using the laws they already have, and background checks will continue to be skipped. Gotta have those new laws, which curiously enough happen to just be on the Dem´s long time wish list, and will have no effect on public safety.

Since the police will probably cite a heavy workload, a backlog of cases and matters to investigate, I suggest we should have FEWER laws harrassing non-violent gun owners, FEWER laws requiring paperwork of the gun-owners and gun shops.

By the way, if mere citizens could access the "background check" records without notifying the government of a sale, or what was sold, or to whom, then I would be totally in favor of it. Who wouldn´t?

The Aurora shooter sounds very similar to Jared Loughner, a victim of paranoid schizophrenia.

Although, as usual, the public STILL does not have all the facts in the Jared Loughner(Gabby Giffords et al.) mass shooting, Wikipedia has a good article detailing what has been made available.


Jared Loughner had been deteriorating mentally for years before the shooting. Everybody who dealt with him saw it.

Dozens of people, including Loughner´s parents, knew that he was mentally ill and potentially dangerous. He was suspended from college for this pending a psychiatric evaluation which he never got. His father confiscated his shotgun and disabled his vehicle.

Arizona has some of the most lenient involuntary mental health laws in the nation. Almost anybody could have petitioned for an emergency involuntary psychiatric evaluation: parents, school officials, students, campus police, local law enforcement, even a total stranger who had reason to think he was mentally ill and dangerous. According to the (incomplete) facts made public thus far, nobody, nobody at all bothered to take this step. Apparently his parents pleaded with him to get help - but of course, being insane already, he could not decide to do so. They may have been unaware of mental health law but one would have thought they would have investigated and found out what to do. The police certainly knew. Nobody did anything.

Wikipedia also has an interesting article on involuntary psychiatric hospitalization in general: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Involuntary_commitment

My ex taught accounting at night and had a student who was having psychotic episodes in her class. She approached the Administration and found he was in a training program for felons. They never told her he had a history of violent assaults. She informed them he was unstable and they did nothing. (Although one other student began bringing a handgun to class and told her he would ´try to pick him off before anyone else got hurt.´)

Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders.

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.
