It’s a dark day when we at FTN have to report horrifying news that overlaps into the things we are passionate about.
From the Daily Mail: A masked gunman broke into a Denver cinema (above) and shot dead at least 12 people and wounded 50 others during a late-night screening of the new Batman movie.
The man, identified by sources as James Holmes, 24, entered the mall in Aurora, Colorado dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and bullet-proof vest and opened fire at the showing of The Dark Knight Rises after setting off a smoke bomb.
Scores of victims are now fighting for their lives; the youngest is just three months old, and is believed to have been shot at blank point range in the back.
Now the press have ran with the idea that the man was wearing a gas mask much like Bane in the movie. Wether that was intentional or not is something we wouldn’t like to comment on but if a gas cannister was part of Holmes’ murderous plan then a mask was needed no matter what the movie.
Our thoughts are with all the people who were victims and our prayers are with them.
