Since I am in New York City, my city’s commissioner is Ray Kelly. As I am watching television right now, Comm. Kelly stated that James Holmes called himself, The Joker. He had his hair dyed red dressed in a black SWAT suit carrying an AK-47 along with a smoke grenade, a hand gun, and a shot gun. Apparently, Holmes was trying to reenact the Joker from The Dark Knight or some other version of the Joker portrayed in either comics or some other form. What is for certain, movie theaters will now have tighter security so there is no copy cat attack.
