So why did James Eagan Holmes shoot 70 strangers going about their everyday lives? Why did he choose a Batman opening? Why are twelve people dead already? To my thinking, the answer is obvious; his thinking was deeply deranged and distorted. In his paranoia these events somehow connected and made sense and solved some unbearable problem in his life. In other words there is no rational explanation for an act of such unspeakable horror other than the ability of the human mind to fracture and rearrange reality in such dangerous ways.
