    I wondered how a college kid could afford all of that nice mail order weaponry:



    James Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, Received $26,000 Stipend Plus Tuition From NIH

    The swell of emotion comes as new information about the suspect emerges. 9 News has learned that James Holmes was awarded a prestigious grant from the National Institutes of Health. It gave the graduate student a $26,000 stipend and paid his tuition for the highly competitive program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado in Denver.

    It is difficult even to consider that taxpayer dollars may have helped fund his alleged rampage. '

    ... SniperFire would have been outraged if he were not alowed to buy Firearms with his $26,000 stipend.


    Melisa Cowden, whose ex-husband was killed in the theater, said Wednesday she was resolutely opposed to a plea deal. “He didn’t give 12 people the chance to plea bargain and say, ‘Let’s see if you’re going to shoot me or not,’”
