James Holmes

Taking criminal sentencing seriously, a good judge sentences killer to 3,318 years behind bars

The loopy bastard who shot up a cinema in the US has just been sentenced in a proper way reflecting the seriousness of his offending.

The man who unleashed a murderous attack on a packed Colorado movie theater was ordered Wednesday (Thursday NZT) to serve life in prison without parole plus 3,318 years – the maximum allowed by law – before the judge told deputies, “Get the defendant out of my courtroom, please.

“The gallery applauded the remark by Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. as he gaveled the hearing to a close, ending a grueling three-year wait to see the gunman brought to justice. Survivors, relatives and a handful of jurors who were in the courtroom cheered and then hugged prosecutors and law enforcement officers. Some wiped away tears.

Samour ordered 28-year-old James Holmes to serve 12 consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole, one for each of the people he killed in the July 20, 2012, attack on a crowded movie theater.

He then added another 3,312 years for 70 convictions of attempted murder, and six years for an explosives charge.    Read more »

The old Batman Joker played by Cesar Romero always had green hair:

Jack Nicholson played The Joker also…green hair:

Heath Ledger‘s fabulous Joker also…yep…had green hair:

So that settles it…none have bright orange hair…that just makes James Holmes a sad ginger c*nt.
