Aurora Conspiracy Theories Not Going Away
If you thought the shooting at the temple earlier this week was going to knock the Aurora massacre from the headlines, guess again. Now, the mainstream media has cautiously waded into the internet-fueled debate over who fired the fatal shots at the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20th.
Business Insider just published a detailed breakdown of the "second shooter" evidence, which has echoes of the Columbine massacre from 1999. Columbine, as you may recall, has a mystery shooter conspiracy theory of its own.
From the Business Insider piece:
We've reported on the eye witness report from Corbin Dates, who said that it looked as if someone in the theater took a phone call by the emergency door and pried it open while "looking for somebody to come his way."
If Holmes was the only shooter [why was a] second gas mask found at the far end of the parking lot, hundreds of feet from Theater 9's emergency exit and Holmes' car [?] (Holmes was found wearing a different gas mask.)
…the Arapahoe County Court judge has granted a request to seal the case against Holmes after the prosecutors argued that disclosing the court records would be "contrary to public interest" and "could jeopardize the ongoing investigation."
