Debunking the Aurora Shooting
UPDATE: This response was to a video posted on YouTube but later removed. I am leaving this article published as a record of what we find strange with James Holmes and the Aurora Shooting. Make sure to listen to the podcast and hear what blogger Scott Creighton has to say.

Response from Scott Creighton:
1. Purchasing the Equipment:
The maker of the video makes several assumptions not the least of which is that his entire stipend went to purchase this stuff. Well, the stipend covers a lot of things including rent, food, books, other fees (health services ect.) We don’t know what he spent that money on or even if he received it for this year prior to the event. That money could just as easily have been spent a while ago. Also, he makes the “assumption” that the stuff could have been purchased on a credit card. How about this… they release the details including the receipts of where he purchased the stuff and HOW he purchased the stuff? That would put an end to all the “assumptions” wouldn’t it?
2. 2nd Gas Mask (knife?)
The knife is a bit of misdirection. I don’t see a knife in that photo and have never written that I did. Misdirection is often an important tool in disinfo campaigns giving people like this video blogger easy pickings to attack “conspiracy buffs”
His explanation for the 2nd gas mask is beyond silly essentially claiming that it was left there by the police themselves and then entered into evidence by mistake. That doesn’t happen. It’s ridiculous to ASSUME such horrific neglegence on the part of the police and the FBI and the ATF (all of whom were there marking evidence points) and in fact the second gas mask was listed as evidence marker #1 which clearly means they considered and thought about it.
3. License Plate
More disinfo… the plate on the car is not from Tenn so why are we even talking about it?
4. Second Shooter
The maker of that video mistakenly claims that the ONLY reason for the confusion about the potential second shooter was because of bullets going through the wall between theater 8 and 9. Not true at all. The arresting officer claims after arresting Holmes that he is being given conflicting descriptions of the shooter while looking right at Holmes. ANOTHER report puts a guy with a “blue and white” plaid shirt on the scene with a gas mask. That report comes prior to Holmes being arrested or just thereafter. Of course the state that Holmes was in when found minutes after the shooting also supports the idea that someone else did the actual shooting
5. “Boob-trap” ing
The maker of the video makes a huge leap claiming that Holmes staged his own fireworks shows? That’s beyond stupid. Yes, some of the information could have been learned online, but again, till details of what was set up hit the public sphere, we won’t know, will we?
6.He didn’t warn the cops about the “boob-traps”?
Now this is the last of this guy’s ridiculous assumptions that I am going to address….
This is again, beyond stupid. What the maker of the video suggests is that Holmes didn’t actually warn the cops about the explosives in the apartment, they just made that up so they wouldn’t have to wait to get a warrant to search his home…. and of course, there just happened to be explosives in the apartment. What a coincidence.
Aside from making the cops out to be liars and incompetent (psychic?), the fact that there actually were explosives in the home and the cops weren’t caught by the traps provides ample evidence to support the claim that the suspect warned them prior to their making entry.
In essence, what you have here is a desperate attempt to justify the official story even though it makes little to no sense what-so-ever. What it becomes is a rather weak example of the mental gymnastics that the institutionalized will perform when they need to believe something that is rather unbelievable. Similar to the notion that “friction” caused all the molten metal that burned under Ground Zero for 6 weeks after 9/11. People will instinctively fit their perception around a narrative, no matter how ridiculous their logic becomes, rather than accept the fact that something is dreadfully wrong with it.
This is not to say that everything I question doesn’t have an alternative explanation other than this being a staged mass casualty event but it’s interesting how far some will go to maintain their grasp on what they perceive the world to be.
