Brooke tried to follow up asking if the witness was talking about one person or two? Witness indicated that it was two different people. No one has followed up on this. Yet

    A sign of the times. With technology such as WiFi on Wii and other gameing devices it may be hard to track others who this man is Aso. with. There may be scorces of people who this man told via wireless gaming systems. One could say we need tighter security then we would need security in every resturant store theater etc. across America. God help us all. With movies and games becoming more real and more grafic theres no telling were this violent uprising will lead to. Denver has received to many blows to its freedom from the littleton school shootiings to the denver police officer killed at the park concert. God be with you all. I and America are praying for the parents and familes of the victims. .....

    I am appalled, angry and in disbelief of the media…
    Every communication released by the media sensationalizes this event. The murderers name is mentioned over and over and branding that name into the public’s mind. Murder is murder, whether it’s one or a mass, ask any victims of relatives or friends, they don’t care at the moment about others killed; it’s not being insensitive, they are in such grief that all they can think about is the loss of life of a loved one, and then revenge enters the mind. AND then the media offers the “CHALLENGE”, this is now the largest mass murder in the United States; let’s see who can top this? Many of these people do it for the attention and don’t care about the consequences. Let’s see who next gets his or her 15 minutes of fame.
    Have we learned anything from past crimes, or about copycat killers?
    All the media can think of is ‘getting the scoop’ regardless of what the consequences are. The victims are those who died, those injured, those that survived and the rest of the country.
    What is it going to take before we run reports through a compassionate editor(s)?
