James Holmes, Spacing Out In Court

It’s really amazing how websites like News Track India are now calling James Holmes “a deeply disturbed individual.”

You didn’t realize it after you heard about the 71 victims? I mean what details did you need to come to that conclusion besides the bare bones of the story?  He had guns and tear gas. He killed people. Of course he’s disturbed.

On top the obvious – calling himself “The Joker” and reportedly spitting all over his solitary confinement cell – you can see it in his face during his first court appearance. 

I can’t tell if he’s terrified or bored (at one point he closed his eyes completely and appeared to be falling asleep) or trying to get sympathy with the wide eyes and forlorn look.
There is no way that he won’t be formally charged with first-degree murder on July 30.
