    None of the reports I've read mention any resemblance to Bane, strangely

    If it was some kind of a publicity stunt there wouldn't be 14 people killed...

    No-one's suggesting it was any sort of publicity stunt. :) I'm probably just cynical

    It wasn't a publicity stunt, but I'm just saying, that if it was, there wouldn't be deaths...

    This is a travesty. That's Pidgeon's home town... I hope he is okay.

    I read the youngest victim was a three month old baby.

    This is disgusting. RIP to the victims. :(

    I heard that the baby was injured, not killed. But that begs the question of what is a 3 month old doing at a midnight showing? Some parents, I just don't understand... I still feel awful that this happened.

    My mistake, three months old is what I had intended the write.

    You're asking the wrong question, what the hell was the guy doing shooting innocent move-goers?

    Not all victims have to die. Conversely, not all victims live.

    Anyways, I heard about this in the car this morning and am appalled at the actions of human beings sometimes. We've been discussing it at work. It's horrifying.

    RIP to those lost and my condolences to all affected, in whatever way possible.

    Mentally disturbed. No one normal would do this.

    That question is implyed, thus I didn't ask it... I was asking more or less a perverbial question. More like an inside thought. As a parent, bed time is an important structured time of day in my house. My kids become evil when their tired. I can't imagine taking them out of the house at that time or keeping them up that late... To each their own, though. And yes, Minus, I get what you mean about victims. I just felt it was necessary to point out that it was an injury, not a death.

    I do see what you mean. It is a little odd in general, but as you said, 'to each their own'.
