"Dark" Tragedy in Colorado

Today I woke up with terrible news from Aurora, Colorado. At an event that was anticipated by millions and sure to break Box Office records this weekend, 12 people did not return home early this morning as they were killed by a man who opened fire at a movie theatre. Reports say an additional 50 people were hurt and in the video below you can see the disturbing images of people walking out with blood all over their clothes. Police said they found a couple weapons including a rifle and hand gun. Witnesses said that they heard and saw some sort of gas inside and which was quickly followed by gun shots from the suspect. It is crazy to think that going to a movie theatre is not safe anymore. This was a time for fans to celebrate the end of an amazing trilogy and now we mourn an pray for the families that lost someone before the sun came up this morning. I have a friend in Aurora and I saw on her Facebook that she is safe! President Obama stated early this morning "As we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family, friends, and neighbors." My thought now is what are people all over the country thinking as they line up to watch this movie over the weekend, the same movie that those 12 innocent lives were taken in another part of the country. When did going to a movie theatre go from being innocent and fun to running for life? It really baffles me and makes me upset that someone is crazy and stupid enough to do this. Those people did not deserve to die and it is a fucking shame that 12 families never saw their loved ones return home early this morning

Here is a link and updated information about the man they believe is responsible of this shameful and disgusting act.

UPDATE: So the suspect told police he was 'The Joker'. Here is a link from MTV News.
